I’m a Benefit convert. Ever since moving to Worcester and not having quick access to my beloved MAC counter back in Leicester, I had to find an alternative. Benefit has a great range of primers, bases, cover up and foundations and I think most of us ladies at some point has either bought their own (or at least used a friends!) Hoola.
I actually popped to my local Benefit counter in Boots for a wedding makeup trial back in 2013 as after weeks of looking and a few trials I was never happy with a professional artists outcome. It always felt caked on and I didnt look like ‘me’. I like a fresh, highlighted makeup so Benefit seemed a perfect solution.
Anyway, since the make up trial and me buying my entire makeup requirements for my big day, I was converted. I love their Porefessional, That Gal (highlighter) Hello Flawless (which gives your face a fab dewy finish) and their Boing concealer.
So last week when I popped in to see what new products they had I was treated to a half hour makeup lesson with Emma, a fantastically chatty and funny girl who is now my favourite ‘Benefit expert’. She used all the bases I was used too but showed me the new Lolli-tint (which I brought!) and the fantastic Gimme Brow.
The Delavigne effect has made us all re-address our eyebrows and this product is a fantastic edition to any girls makeup bag. On the day Emma used Gimme Brow with Browzings and my eyebrows looked perfect, full and were still a natural shade. Gimme Brow comes in a neat little tube with a brush wand and you apply it like a mascara directly to your eyebrows. The end effect is a groomed, full and neat brow AND its so easy to use.
In other news…my mum is now also a Benefit Gal! she spent more than me! x For more info on Benefit products visit www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk
