I popped into Benefit Covent Garden for a brow wax with Mr Darren Seale, waxing expert and in the process roped in Mr C (he was lucky, it could’ve been a sack and crack). I’ve never been into the Benefit boutique before and it’s kinda cute, and the brow bar is well equipped with the […]
Mod Squad is an uber nude retro shade, a pale pale pink: I have to admit I am a sucker for this kind of shade even though it’s a difficult colour to wear. I love it though! What do you think? Too nude?
Wanna? from Benefit’s Full Finish lipstick range looks like a hot pink in the tube: On me, it because a soft purple pink! Quite unusual but pretty nevertheless: I just don’t wear dramatic lip shades that much though. What do you think?
I Think I Love You from Benefit is a brown-plum-shimmery shade: It doesn’t look that hot in the tube but it actually looks quite nice on my lips (I think!) sort of a muted brown plum. Goes to show it’s worth trying a colour on your lips. What do you think?
Benefit full finish lipstick in Pinking of You is a nude, shimmer free pale colour. It works out to be quite a creamy nude pink on me, quite wearable although you need a few coats to get even coverage: I imagine on a fairer girl the pink would be richer toned. What do you think […]
Pinking Of You wouldn’t be my first choice of the Benefit pink – it’s sort of a sorbet pink, the kind of shade I imagine would look gorgeous on blondes but fade into nothing on me. Actually it’s not bad, and more pigmented than I expected – I wouldn’t call it full finish though, whilst […]
Flirt Alert is indeed a flirty shade, an extremely hot orange red: I think this is lovely on the lips with high coverage but not too creamy and gooey, thus less prone to smudging: What do you think?
Praise the lord, it’s Friday! I just had to get that out. Benefit recently launched 7 new ultra shine lip glosses; 4 new shades and 3 returning colours! The line up: I have a soft spot of lip gloss, ANY lip gloss! The first four shades are right up my alley, as they are nude, […]
Hi Ladies! It’s been a while so since I’ve done a giveaway (Christmas Giveaway winners have been contacted and prizes are on their way) and now I have a really fabulous one up for you! Thanks to the guys at Benefit, THREE readers will win a Bella Bamba Night Out Kit: You will get all […]
So I have been testing out loads of stuff from Benefit lately – I guess it’s been nice rediscovering things I’ve heard of from other people (both positive and negative). Next up is Hello Flawless – oh yes, I love my base products! They say: This silky powder cover-up glides on naturally sheer and layers […]
You know there are some beauty products that I hear other people talk about a lot but never get round to trying. One of those products is Benefit Erase Paste – I love the name ‘Erase Paste’ but wasn’t too sure about the ‘Paste’. Anyway I finally got a chance to try it out…ummm hello!? […]
Benefit Prrrowl or Prrrowl (I can’t figure out if it’s 3 R’s or 4 R’s because it varies from different pictures that I see!) is a rather interesting concoction of a iridescent mascara top coat and a shimmering pink lip gloss. I know what you’re thinking…why would you want a top coat and a lip […]
Launching in January 2011 (Happy New Year!) is Benefit’s Bella Bamba Boxed Powder, a warm medium pink blusher with a shimmer gold touch to it. It comes in this funky looking box and it is reallyyyy pretty. They say: Amplify cheekbones and create the illusion of sculpted features with this 3D watermelon blush. Laced with […]
I got sucked into the Glamour magazine freebie thing and sauntered into my local newsagent, picking up three copies of Glamour at £2 each with little hassle, and in the process bagging myself a full size Benefit Eye Bright, Bad Gal Eyeliner and It Stick concealer. I also bought Red magazine which I have never […]
Want free Benefit make up? Well… I bought this months Glamour magazine and noticed that they have a rather tempting freebie with next months issue (on sale June 10th). With the purchase of the magazine you will get one of these free: Benefit Eye Bright! What does it do? Its a pink pencil to wake […]
Primers are my one of favourite things to try so I was very happy to try this Benefit Stay Don’t Stray product: They say: You put it underneath your concealer and eyeshadow, and it’s packed full of antioxidants and vitamins E & C to protect the skin. The primer then keeps your concealer and eyeshadow […]
Lips of the day is the perfect shimmery pink-orange-coral lip gloss for the summer! Benefit’s Lip Gloss in Freshly Squeezed: Smells of oranges, which is appropriate considering the name! Its definitely shimmery but its quite nice and if you can’t wear shimmer in the summer, then when else can ya?! Its quite a thick gloss […]
I’m a bit slow with this product but still…Benefit’s Powderflage Powder Concealer – or should I say light reflecting powder caught my eye ages ago but by the time I was ready to buy, I couldn’t find it on counter anywhere! The gal on Benefit told me she had “never heard of it before” – […]
Needless to say, when I spotted this giveaway whilst doing my weekly shop, I didn’t need to be asked twice. Between 01st March and 25th April 2010 you’ll have the chance to win one of one hundred luxury Benefit lipsticks or lip glosses every day when you buy a standard single Flake. Just enter the […]
