It's no secret that I'm a mad Benefit fan. Mad I tells ya. Everything about the zippy little products I love, from the funk-a-licious names to the dreamy textures to the reading-my-mind-releases. But you know how you treat the ones you love. You always expect more. It's a little unfair but that's just the way it is. So when I find a Benefit product I think is the shiz, it means it really, really is. And its new, to-be-released next month illuminating wonder, Girl Meet Pearl, is the shiz. Fo' real. I've worn it every single day since it landed on my desk last week. I've even been able to forgo foundation and wear less other face makeup because it makes me look so darn good. (Even if I do say so myself.) Why I love it so: it soothes skin with its punchy blend of raspberry and chamomile, it smoothes skin thanks to its sweet almond oil infusion, but most of all its golden-pink pearly pigments light up your face. It's radiance in a bottle. But it's that little bit easier to apply than High Beam. And it lasts all day. Sigh. Add to your Wish Lists.
Benefit Girl Meets Pearl ($53) will be available from September 8. Stockists: 02 8353 5000.
