Benefit Eye Bright

When I was in London I was lucky enough to be there when Glamour magazine were having the Benefit giveaway. I of course bought all three magazines and got the three different pencils. I am going to be reviewing each one and to start with I chose Eye Bright which primarily brightens your eyes making you look more away.
Lets take a look at the packaging:

Swatched onto my skin it comes out a very pearly white. I think it is comparible to Milk or  Cottage Cheese by NYX though they are back in Australia and I can't show you.

I find it can be worn three ways. As an inner corner highlight and on the water line to brighten your eyes and it is also a quick simple brow highlight that you can easiƦy rub in with your finger when you are in a rush. I wore nothing but som mascara and the Eye Bright in the following photo to give you an idea.

On Sephora.com it retails for US $20 which I find to be a bit overpriced. In the end it really is just an oversized white eye pencil with a pearly finish. If you have the money to spend then why not buy it but if you can grab an NYX jumbo pencil then take that one instead. But I do like the idea of an eye brightening pencil and I think it can definitley make you look fresh and awake.
Here is a FOTD for you as well:

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation mixed with Dior Skin Nude Foundation

  1. You look so fresh and gorgeous! I really like Eyebright, but would never ever pay full price for it. I'm glad to have it as a freebie!


  2. They are a bit pricey the Benefit pencil, but it does look really nice on you

  3. I like it, but a bit more than I would want to spend. I'm loving that lip color on you though! :D

  4. I've never Used these but i really want to now after seeing this haha
