Benefit Cosmetics Haul

Wednesday, 11 February 2015


I am a massive fan of Benefit, they were the first high end makeup brand I ever used, and I haven't really strayed. I have only ever really used the basics when it comes to make up, slap a bit of foundation and concealer on and job done. But when I was at my regular Benefit counter in Boots Queen St, Cardiff, I decided to have a little splurge. 

I had completely run out of Boiing Concealer so that was the first thing on my list as I haven't found a concealer that can really cover my dark circles and blemishes quite like it. 

Next, I was there to sort out some major eyebrow issues, long story, so the lovely Lucy was kind enough to sort me out with a Browzings, which I have the E.L.F. version of and can honestly say will never be going back to! There is quite a difference in price, but also in quality, if you have read my Monthly Beauty Favourites you will see the E.L.F. eyebrow kit there and I thought it was great until I used Benefit's. You only have to use the smallest amount to get amazing results and my eyebrows were still there by the time I was going to bed. I love E.L.F. for the prices but it is true what they say, you pay for what you get!

And last but not least, I had a bit of a telling off when the girls on the counter found out I don't use any sort of moisturiser or cleanser. I'm not going to lie, when they found out I hate washing the look on their faces was enough to embarrass anyone into starting! It's not that I don't wash, but I have no routine when it comes to that sort of thing and I've found a good old makeup wipe does the job. Apparently not! It is something I have wanted to start doing, my make up doesn't sit on my skin very well because it is so dry in some places and oily in others. I have been told by so many people my skin is thirsty so I went for the b.right Radiant Skin Care Intro Kit. This has trial sizes of all the skin care products I was looking at and hopefully the perfect start into kicking me up the bum and making me wash! Ha, but seriously, I will get into a routine and look after my skin.

What products are you loving at the moment? Have you tried Benefit's new Puff Off?

  1. I tried my friend's Boiing concealer t'other day and have been craving buying it ever since. I'm such a creature of habit with my make but this has definitely changed my views ! I even bought a foundation the other day having lived on powder my whole life *must stop reading beauty blogs* but having seen it again on this post it must be fate right? So I should go and buy it right away? Yes.

    1. I would definitely give it a go! I believe in fate and I always have a massive case of 'the bloggers made me buy it' so don't worry, you don't have to suffer alone!

  3. The B Right kit is a great mini series to get you into a routine. I admit I don't stick to many routines, but you'll know what you love from these and get into using them :) I did!
