That 2-for-1 life

Benefit Cosmetics knows all about fast-paced lifestyles, so they came out with two very special products: They’re Real! Double the Lip ($26) and They’re Real! Duo Eyeshadow Blender ($31).

They’re Real! Double the Lip lipsticks cuts out all the unnecessary steps for a fuller pout. It’s a lipstick and a lipliner that is applied perfectly with one stroke, thanks to the custom teardrop tip. If you look closely, you’ll notice the lipstick is two-toned, which is where the lipstick/lipliner combo comes in—the darker shade is made to line your outer-lip and the lighter shade is made to fill in your lips. The colors range from nude to bright red, with a semi-matte finish that’s super comfortable.

If you also need a speedy natural eyeshadow look, look no further. They’re Real! Duo Eyeshadow Blender easily places eyeshadow on any eyeshape (thanks for the universal blender brush). Most of the shade collection is a variety of neutral shades to keep things as natural as possible. You can choose to apply the darker shade closer to the lashline for drama or in the crease for a natural look. Easiest way to apply 2 shades with 1 swipe! (By the way, finishes range from satin to sheen to matte.)

Two must-haves this summer

That ‘boy beat’ is all the rage right now and what better way to achieve it than with voluminous mascara and super natural concealer?! One of the biggest influencer activation was for the BADgal BANG! Volumising mascara ($32); it’s waterproof, smudgeproof, and delivers wild volume using space technology (aero-particles). The applicator is thin, so it helps you work it from the base of your lashes to the tip with ease for a clump-free application.

To keep things in the realm of no-makeup makeup, the Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer ($27) is full coverage with a matte finish that’s perfect for spot concealing dark circles and hyperpigmentation. Only downside? It has a limited shade range (3 to choose from), which makes color-matching a little difficult. We have shade 02, which has a salmon undertone to correct any blue/purple in our skin.
