Aloha!!…sorry. This post is making me feel a bit tropical! Welcome to this mini Benefit haul, these products definitely caught my eye on the Benefit counter in boots. Benefit do some of the most incredible packaging and I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging hence the blog post. However it is quite pricey. But is it worth it?!………
This is basically a liquid bronzer and is lovely; for £22.50 you get 30ml which I think is quite good. I can see why this was a TATLER beauty awards 2016 winner. I think a lot of us like a bronzer without the glitter or sheen; and this is what it will give you. The bottle is a stunning shiny gold colour and has a pump which will keep it clean and ensure you don’t pour too much out. The consistency is quite thin which you can use on bare skin or over your foundation. I used 2 pumps over my NARs sheer glow foundation and it gave me a lovely bronze matt look . I used it on the outer edges of my forehead, and across the top of my cheeks and nose. I know Ill be able to use this all year round. Gorge!
So this is a balm stick with 3 different colours of pink champagne, sheer watermelon and soft-coral. the case is a gorgeous rose gold colour with a twist wheel at the bottom to wind the product up. However for £23.50 sadly I am not impressed with the actual balm …ouch! – I’m not sure if it was because it’s so sheer there was not much colour pay off. I followed the instructions and glided this across my cheek and the most I got was the middle watermelon shade, but once I had blended with my fingers, it almost disappeared and my cheek just felt sticky. I had such high hopes for this to work with the Hoola 😦 But I am going to stick with it and try it on bare skin and wearing minimal make-up. It’s too pretty to give back, so I will keep it and make it work! 🙂 Has anyone else got this? what do you think?
This has to be my favourite of the 3 products. I recently finished my Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil which I loved but just haven’t got round to ordering a new one. So thought Id give this Benefit pencil a try as It was part of a Benefit display in Boots and needed something for my brows. It is £18.50 and is so creatively designed in a cool sleek silver colour with quirky lids each end; there are 6 shades to choose from numbered 1-6 so there is a shade for all, I got shade 5-deep as I have dark brown brows. It has a super fine tip which claims to give hair like strokes; and a brush spoolie on the other end which I love when brow pencils have this. It does what it says, I actually said ‘WOW’ out loud when I used this. This pencil will enable you to create a super defined brow with control, it does look a little harsh when are done with the pencil but once blended with the brush end it’s just perfect. love, love, love!
