Review/Photos: Befine Exfoliating Cleanser



I was lucky enough to get a decent sample size of Befine Exfoliating Cleanser in my February Birchbox. I've been enjoying it for the past 2 weeks and I love it. It's a scrub that melts into a nice foamy a cleanser. It's pretty rough on initial contact, but the sugars quickly dissolves into a foamy cleanser as you will see in the photos at the end of this post. My skin never had any bad reaction to it and I like how it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy or dry. It makes my skin super soft and smooth.

 I've never heard of this brand before, but after a bit of research I found that Befine is a new brand in the market founded in 2006. Taken from Befine facebookBefine is a collection of natural skin products that rely on food ingredients, plants, vitamins, minerals, and oils to purify, protect and pamper the skin". I love that all their products are made with natural ingredients and not with harsh chemicals. 

WHO: All skin types. I've read reviews on MakeupaAlley.com from people with acne prone and sensitive skin who loves this product.

WHAT: Befine Exfoliating cleanser with brown sugar, sweet almond, and oats.

WHEN: Permanent

WHERE: You can get it at your local Ulta. A full size cost $25



The sugar crystals are quite big and very visible.


HOW: On a clean and damp face, massage a small amount of the product using your fingers for a few minutes. Rinse and pat dry with a clean towel. 




As you scrub more, the sugars dissolved into a foamy cleanser.



I'm really enjoying this product a lot and from all the exfoliators I've tried, this is far by the best. It is on the expensive side. A full size product will cost you about $25, but I think it's worth it and I'm sure you will love it  as much as I do.

Swatch: MAC Pro Pigment in Primary Yellow



The first thing that came into mind when I first saw this yellow pigment was "Wow, it's freakin' bright!". It's my second pigment from MAC and I don't think I own anything like it. I mean, I do have a couple of yellow eye shadows in my shadow palettes like Ebay 120 eye shadow palette and KKcenterhk ES Brand Double Eye Shadow palette, but they are not as pigmented and bright.

Mac Pro Matte Pigment in Primary Yellow is a matte ( meaning no shine or shimmer) true yellow. It's not yellow orange, school bus yellow or neon yellow. It's yellow, and it's perfect! You can pat or sweep it all over the lids, use as a crease color, a pop of color on the lower lash line or inner corners of the eyes. Just keep in mind that like most matte eye shadows, it is a bit difficult to blend. You're gonna have take your time with blending, but result is gorgeous and worth it.










Swatch on my arm with no base underneath.

LOOK: Smoky Midnight Blue Eyes and Pale Pink lips

A few friends and I went to Metal Mania at The House of Blues last night here in L.A. My friend gave us free tickets because his friend was going to play in a band. Now, I don't listen to Metal. I don't really understand that type of music because it's nothing but noise to me lol. But I couldn't turn down a free ticket because I've never been to The House of Blues, and I guess I should be more open to other type of music right? Well, I only lasted 2 hours inside lol. The bands were extremely good for what they do...All that head bangin' up and down, screaming and more screaming and awesome guitar and drum skills. They were really, really good and I meant it. But I couldn't stand it. It was just too loud for me and it even made my head hurt really bad O_o. Oh well, I tried.



Here is the makeup look I wore. I did a Smoky Midnight Blue eyes and Pale Pink lips. It was a night time event, so I went for a dramatic makeup. The main eye shadow I used on my lids is NYX single eye shadow in Frosted Ocean. It's one of my favorite eye shadows from NYX. See another makeup look using this shadow here. It's a rich midnight blue with lots of shimmers. I love it. Just make sure you apply it before your face makeup because you will get tons of fall outs. For my cheeks I dusted Nars blush in Orgasm, a gorgeous peachy pink with gold shimmers that pretty much goes with anything. If you don't have it, then you can use other dupes like Mark Good Glowing blush in After Glo (buy it here) or Wet n Wild Color Icon blusher in Pearlescent Pink (Swatch here). Then to compliment the dark, dramatic eyes, I kept my lips light (you don't want dark lips and dark eye makeup) and went for a pale pink. Wet n Wild Mega Last lip color in Think Pink, a matte pale pink was the perfect choice. 








A little cam whoring using my small Canon digital camera. I don't know if you notice, but I lost a bit of weight, yay! My face looks slimmer whoohoo ^_^.







-Shimmery white on the inner corner and 1/3 of the inner lid and lower lash line. It will open up the eyes and add dimension to the eye makeup.
-Shimmery midnight blue eye shadoq all over the lids and lower lash line.
-A little bit of matte black eye shadow on the outer corner to add a bit of definition.
-Matte white shadow on the brow bone as a high light.
