What will they think of next beauty babes? We have bb cream for the face, bb cream for the legs, and now Benefit has launched Benefit Air Control BB cream eyelid primer.
Before we take a look at Benefit Air Control BB cream eyelid primer, let’s take a look at the definition of a BB cream:
BB Cream stands for a blemish balm or beauty balm. These creams are intended to be an all-in-one formula that replaces serum, moisturizer, spf and foundation. Some of my favourites? Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream (high end) and Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream (lower end). I tend to wear BB creams all summer long when I don’t need a lot of coverage. As fall approaches, I usually apply foundation over my BB Cream (so that I’m still getting the benefits of the BB cream).
Benefit Air Patrol is an eyelid primer with SFP 20 that contains EnviroDefend complex known to help guard your delicate eyelids against environmental stress.
What are the benefits of using a BB cream on your eyes before applying makeup?
– Calms and soothes your eyelids
– Relieves Dryness
– Extends the Wear of Eyeshadow
– Protects from pollutants, sun, smoke and other environmental nasties
As is pretty standard with Benefit Cosmetics, Benefit Air Patrol has the cutest packaging! It comes in a super cute case with a cap that looks like it’s fit for a pilot!
Inspired by gel foam mattresses and pillows, the tip is a cushion calm tip to help feel gentle on your sensitive eyelids. To get the desired amount of product, the case has a handy twisting mechanism designed to twist 1 time to dispense enough product for one eye.
The formula itself is creamy and light and blends perfectly without much effort. I’m always looking for a great eyeshadow primer that helps promote the longevity of my eye makeup and helps eliminate creases. Now that Benefit Air Patrol has a formula that also hydrates, protects and color-corrects, I won’t be looking elsewhere for an eyeshadow primer for the next little while.
Benefit Air Patrol is available this month (September) and retails for $38 CAD/$29 USD and is available at Sephora and select Shoppers Drug Marts and Benefit boutiques.
Until next time,
