I have acquired the Benefit's Primpcess for quite some time but haven't gotten the time to try it out.
Today, somehow I just felt like taking it out from my drawer to use it.
I followed the instructions as given. There is a booklet lesson included.
First, I applied Boi-ing in 02 with the mini concealer brush included in the set to the under-eye area where it was the darkest. Boi-ing is a dark circle concealer for the eyes. You can see the difference in the photo below:
Next, I applied the Creaseless Cream Shadow in r.s.v.p. as a base shadow from the upper lash line up to the brow. R.s.v.p. is a natural light brown tone, almost nude, with a hint of shimmer. You can see the swatch of r.s.v.p. which turned out nude.

The swatch of r.s.v.p. - turns out nude, except for some shimmer
Using the fluff brush, I put the contour colour on both sides and applied it to the crease of my eyes. This was followed by patting the accent colour with my middle finger to the centre of my lids. After that, the booklet says to use the thin side of the talent brush to pick up the liner colour (dark brown) and line the upper lash line from the inner corner of the eye to the outer corner. Then, on the lower lash line, line it from the outer corner to halfway of the lower lash line. Errr....at this point, I had problem because the line was too thick on my lower lash line. What I did was just wipe part of the line off with some tissue. Turned out better.
The same colour can also be used to define the brow, but I didn't do it. Lazy me :P
Then, I put on the mascara BADgal Lash in black. (Wow! The mascara brush is really huge. I actually had some trouble when it comes to the tiny lashes on the outer corner of my eyes.)
After mascara, I used the wiped-clean concealer brush to apply some eye bright on the inner corners of my eyes to the bridge of the nose. And from the outer corner, to the outer corner of the brow. I blended it with my finger and DONE!!
My Eye of the Day (EOTD) Very natural? More defines eyes? What do you think?
