Using Benefit’s The Rich is Back (Review)


Whew. Finally a new post!

I got this awesome Matthew Williamson disco themed makeup kit when Benefit was having a sale. It’s not available on the US Benefit website anymore but the UK Benefit still has it.

Ok. Let’s go.

This is what the packaging looks like.


A closer look on the inside. It includes four eyeshadows, a blush and blush brush, the They’re real mascara, and the Inferno Lip Gloss.


Eyeshadow Swatches. As you can see, they are quite pigmented and I love how all of the colors go so well with each other!lips and mascara(1)

A sample size of mascara and lipgloss. So the mascara is very popular and I’m sure you’ve heard of it before and from the reviews I’ve seen, people seem to love it. I really like the brush and how it didn’t clump up my lashes, but it didn’t really make my eyelashes look fuller. The lipgloss is very sheer so I had to put it over another lipstick but the consistency is great. Not sticky at all and it smells very nice!

lips and mascaraHere it is on my face. A little booklet with a tutorial came with it and this is how it turned out. I was trying to chase the sun so the lighting is a bit off and the lip turned out a little pinker on the first picture.IMG_0019



I really love this kit! The only thing I didn’t like was the blush because it barely showed on me, but everything else is great.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know what you think!! Have a great day everyone! πŸ˜€

Day dreamer. Lover of all things cute and pretty. I also have a thing with planners/organizers.

    1. Thanks! πŸ™‚ This is actually one of the first Benefit products I’ve tried (except for a sample of benetint). For this kit, I’m kinda impressed with the shadow’s quality but now that I’ve tried the They’re real mascara, I don’t really get the hype. But I guess it;s good that I got to try them out first before buying full size

  1. Fab look you created, you are like a living doll *_* perfect in every way. I decided I want hair like yours, so I must bleach it soon

    1. Awww! Thanks but seriously though I’m far from it.:P
      I actually recently box colored my hair, I was trying to cover up the ombre. I’m trying to go for a subtle reddish tint.
      What’s your natural hair color?

      1. My natural colour is pretty light, I’ll tweet you a picture of it once I find something similar, but I dye my hair jet black as you know πŸ˜€

        1. Please do πŸ™‚ With your jet black hair and fair skin, you remind me so much of snow white!! You should start wearing red head bands and sing to birds and such. Ugh now, I’m jealous. πŸ˜€

          1. Ouch! Sun allergies are not fun! πŸ™ but seriously though, grass is always greener on the other side!
            I grew up wanting skin like yours because that’s what was seen as beautiful where I’m from! I was completely shocked when I moved to the states and I found out about tanning. Now I don’t even care about skin color anymore!
            I have two colors tan and super duper tan.

            Take solace at the fact that you’re beautiful and millions of people in the world wish they looked like you! πŸ˜€

  2. It looks beautiful on you (the lip gloss) and I like the eyeshadows as well πŸ™‚ pictures are amazing and well done with the makeup and photography! I tagged you in a special tag on my blog πŸ™‚
