Benefit Air Patrol

Ladies, prepare for takeoff as the new Benefit Air Patrol BB Cream Eyelid Primer is here to make your eye shadow last and last all day long!

Already out at Benefit counters nationwide (it launched on the 1st November), this is one Benefit product I’ve been dying to try out!


So many of the beauty gurus I follow on Youtube have said such great things about it, but it was after Tati Westbrook’s very thorough First Impressions video that I needed to have it!

I have a combination skin, but my eyelids are almost always oily; which means my eye shadow needs a lot of work to stay put and without help, even with the most precise blending and amazing products, my shadow is generally faded and blah a few hours later.

The only other product that has worked for me to keep my eye shadow put is my Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer.

While I still love my Smashbox eyeshadow primer, Air Patrol has the added extra of having an SPF and being slightly tinted, which doubles up as a primer and base colour. So I can use less product on my lid and get the same amazing results. YAY!

Dare I say it, Air Patrol is my new “can’t live without beauty product”!


The applicator is inspired by gel foam that is found in mattresses and pillows, making it super soft. Personally, I like to use my fingertips to apply anything on my lids, but if you’re not into finger painting, then you’ll love this applicator!


Air Patrol BB Cream Eyelid primer with SPF 20 contains EnviroDefend complex which helps to guard your delicate eyelids against environmental stress. Stress like pollutants, sun and smoke.

Added to that it helps to colour correct your lids while locking in your eye shadow and keeping your lids hydrated.

Do you need it?


  • If your shadow doesn’t stay put, then you need it!
  • If you want to protect your lids from sun, smoke and pollutants, then you need it!
  • If you want to colour correct your lids, then you need it!
  • If you want to use less shadow and ensure it stays put all day, then you need it!
  • If you want your shadow to look perfectly flawless, then you need it!

In a nutshell, you need it!
