If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile you would know that Benefit Cosmetics is one of my absolute favourite brands. From their brand identity to the packaging and to the products themselves, everything Benefit does is down right amazing. So you can imagine that I am always anxiously waiting for the latest innovation to come from the Benefit labs and my favourite place to stay up to date is Trendmood.
Trendmood is an Instagram account that posts everything you need to know about upcoming products from just about every brand. Over the last little while they have posted quite a few sneak peeks of new Benefit products and I can’t handle the anticipation so I had to share the news!
The first new product is Dandelion Shy Beam, a matte liquid highlighter that combines that glow of the classic High Beam Illuminator and the tint of the Dandelion Boxed Blush. It is a soft pink highlight that gives a natural glow without any shimmer so it is perfect for contouring and accentuating the high points of the face. Shy Beam is available at Sephora for $34.
Next up is an extension to the infamous Porefessional line, the shine fighting, pore hiding collection now has two new additions – the Matte Rescue Invisible Finish Mattifying Gel and the Instant Wipeout Pore-cleaning Masks.
The Matte Rescue Gel is an invisible mattifying gel that is meant to be used underneath the Porefessional primer. The water based gel absorbs shine and excess oil to leave skin with a natural matte finish. Available at Sephora for $36.
The Instant Wipeout Masks are dual sided pore-cleaning masks that use a special serum and a textured fabric to exfoliate and clear out impurities from your pores. Clarifying mushroom extract unclogs pores and fights shine without over drying the skin. The masks come in a set of 8 for $42 and can be used on the nose, cheeks, forehead or chin.
Next up is another new member of the Dandelion family, Dandelion Dew is a liquid blush described as a soft baby pink radiance for cheeks. Not much information is available on this product yet but Trendmood says it has a lovely formula that gives a natural sun kissed glow to the cheeks. I cannot wait until this beauty launches!
Last is a trio of new additions to the bestselling Hoola range! My favourite bronzer is now going to be available in a liquid form as well as a body bronzer.
The Dew The Hoola Liquid Bronzer is a soft matte liquid that gives a sheer, seamless natural looking tan. I tried this product out when I got the Do The Hoola kit that I reviewed here, it gave a stunning glow and a natural tan that worked beautifully on my fair skin. I CANNOT wait for the full size to launch at the end of the month for $36.
The Hoola Zero Tanlines Body Bronzer takes the universal tan shade of the Hoola bronzer and turns into an all over body bronzer with a special sponge applicator for a seamless tan.
There will also be a beautiful gold bamboo brush with turquoise tips to help blend in all of those products. These three products should be available around March.
I will definitely update you if I can find out anymore information and keep an eye on Trendmood for even more new releases! All photos are from Trendmood.
