ULTA Beauty 21 Days of Beauty Spring 2015 is on! Benefit Cosmetics is so spring break travel friendly

Happy Monday Gorgeous!

I am home from spring break, though I know several other states are just starting! We normally spend our vacations on military ships or at Legoland. It was refreshing to go to the Biosphere 2, Flandrau Observatory and Old Tucson Studios for spring break this year.

 While I was busy vacationing, and when I say busy, I mean, B.U.S.Y.! I'm so tired from all the busy fun we had!

While I was traveling for Spring Break-the ULTA Beauty 21 Days of Beauty Spring 2015 beauty box arrived!

 Okay so let's do this thing! I'm bare faced and ready to begin my Benefit Cosmetics The Flawless Four!

 I start with the eye shadow primer, Stay Flawless. It has the consistency of a glue stick, and I rub it directly on my eye lid instead of opting to apply with a concealer brush or sponge. It's very sheer, and clear looking though when I applied eye shadow, it blended well and seemed to wear for quite some time!

 Next up Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow tinted moisturizer. I love this stuff and wish my sample was bigger. I am using the Petal set, and this product has a great yellow tint to it and is perfect for my skin tone.

  For me, it went on a bit waxy and streaky but dried down to a light powdery finish. It gave me a sheer coverage, just enough to be daytime makeup ready.
 Next, is the Fake Up concealer that is part tinted concealer and part eye cream moisturizer.
This product goes on weird, and by that I mean it doesn't really put enough concealer on and it doesn't really add enough moisture. So, I wouldn't say it was bad, just not a favorite for me.

 I tried the brush, not a fan, switched to my large domed brush from Arbonne to apply this over my entire face.

 Okay! This is my favorite product in all of the Benefit Cosmetics The Flawless Four:  Hello Flawless powder. It is a powder with a creamy texture and dries down on the skin to a velvet finish. LOVE!
For me, this wee sample set is the "must" have on your spring break travel because it's going to give you a day to night foundation look. Get it and shop Ulta Beauty now in the 21 Days of Beauty so you can get the free gift with purchase!

 Now to finish the look, I'm using the new Spring color story lipstick called Buttercup from Gerard Cosmetics. It is spring perfect! I think it just may be for the summer too! The consistency of the lipstick is creamy and moisturizing and wears well. I like Buttercup alone and with a sheer gloss over it!

Ta da! Ready for the day in my ULTA Beauty 21 Days of Beauty Spring 2015 makeups! The eye makeup is from Bare Minerals copper smokey eye collection which I am sharing tomorrow.

Where are you going or where have you been for spring break this year?
