Benefit Haul

Benefit is fast becoming one of my favourite beauty brands...

The They’re Real mascara is my absolute favourite mascara and I find myself constantly repurchasing it. I really wanted to try more Benefit products, so I was very happy to receive lots of lovely new Benefit products for Christmas.

The Benefit Sweet Tintations limited edition set was part of the sweet shope range. It’s such a lovely set it contains: benetint, lollitint, benebalm and lolibalm. I’m sure you’ve all heard of the iconic benetint: one of Benefit’s best selling product of all time. A rosy-red cheek and lip stain that gives the most gorgeous flush of colour. I’ve never really used stains before but this is such a lovely little product, especially when used a blush. The matching benebalm has a really hydrating mango butter formula (yum) and it leaves your lips feeling super soft. The benebalm itself is also tinted so it leaves a lovely rosy colour on the lips, you can use the balm separately or over benetint. Lollitint and lollibalm have the exact same formula but in a beautiful candy floss pink colour. I'm completely converted to tints now! 

I have wanted to try gimme brow for ages. I’ve read so many amazing reviews about this little wonder product and I knew I had to try it for myself. I’m a girl who is obsessed with her brows and I have to say this brow gel is incredible. It really does give you thicker and fuller brows thanks to those fabulous fibres. The wand is tiny, which is great for precise application. This product would be great on its own but I love using this product after filling in my brows with MAC charcoal brown, it gives my brows that cara-esque quality. I love it and it sets my brows for the whole day, this is definitely the best brow gel I’ve tried.

I’m going to make a bold claim: erase paste may be the find of 2015 and we’re only six days into the year. Yes, it’s that good. This product is described as a ‘brightening camouflage’ and really does erase all your blemishes. This product is the best thing for the under eye area. It literally removes dark circles in an instant and brightens the area at the same time! A little product goes a long way so I can see this lasting a while.

I’ve mentioned the it’s potent! eye cream a lot recently. I first came across this product when I received a sample in my birchbox a few months back and I just had to buy the full sized product. This product helps to fade dark circles and fine lines. It’s such a gorgeous eye cream and it’s a must in my skincare routine.

  1. I love benefit!! I use the fake up concealer erase paste is just a bit too thick for my liking so I passed that on to a friend! I also love the fine one one check and lip cream that has three colours in it (the rose gold packaging is to die for) I need to try the new eyeliner they have! I used to use the eye cream all the time but the new sample I got in Birchbix gave me a reaction so I think they have have changed the formula :(

  2. Some good choices! I got the starter kit for christmas by benefit some amazing products x
