I largely ignore Benefit cream eyeshadows although looking back at my old review, I was once madly in love with them. I picked this one up cos I fancied a sparkly peach: This is more of a warm sheer peach. The texture is medium not too soft, not too hard – reminds me of MAC cream shadows in the pot (don’t know my MAC very well, can you tell?) Swatch: On the eyes….looks a bit […]
I have a list of products, items that I’ve wanted to buy for a while but I am totally willing to wait for. A few weeks ago I decided to order Miss Popularity, a highlighter wand type contraption from StrawberryNet for £10 (on sale). I do love a Benefit invention: Benefit say: Turn up your “all that” appeal with miss popularity. All you need is our new precision highlighter in all the right places and […]
You know how you have a hit list of products, things that you’ve wanted to buy and try for a while but they’re things you put off buying until crack? Well That Gal, a primer from Benefit is one of those items for me. I’ve always thought that it was mega cute and I love the idea of glowy luminous skin, so here it is: Inside the packaging (is that New York?) is a little […]
I am getting acquainted with Benefit again, and picked up this cute little pot of loose powder, named One Hot Minute Face Powder £23.50. It is, as expected, super cute, and will apparently make you sexy in seconds. They say: Look sexy in seconds! For a gorgeous “gaze at me glow” sweep this loose rose-gold finishing powder over your complexion & décolleté. All it takes is…one hot minute! One minute? Darling, I can do it […]

You get a mini sized Benefit Badgal Lash Mascara free this month with Glamour magazine. Thats if you can stand reading things like: ‘How to spot if he is cheating on you’ and ’10 reasons why your relationship won’t last’ and ‘Why you are an underachiever’ and ‘If your best friend really your best friend or your frenemy?’. I haven’t bought many womens magazines because I can’t stand the drivel, but I was tempted by […]
I am mad for brows at the moment, ever since I realised my brows are a little short at the ends and need some extended for some va-va-voom. So I got this Benefit Instant Brow for half price from eBay. This comes in two shades. Light/Medium and Medium/Dark. I bought the Medium/Dark. The pencil is a creamy/waxy texture. I am more of a hard brow pencil kind of girl, as I find the result more […]
Ever badly crave an item, but just have a niggly feeling you will ooh at it once then never look at it again? I have that feeling with Benefit’s new Posietint. It is extremely cute though: In the UK it is £22.50 which is expensive considering how tiny the little jar is. This is the pink slightly more opaque version of Benetint, which I think is crapola in a Jar. Benetint also has a million […]
I was browsing the QVC website a while ago and I discovered this Laura Gellar Product: It is a white highlight powder, which you can use under the brown, down the bridge of the nose, on the cheekbones. All over your face, if you want to be a make shift Christmas tree. However, it is waitlist only in the UK, so in the meantime, Benefit came out with Miss Popularity: Which for all intents and […]
I never thought about buying Benefit’s Big Beautiful Eyes Kit – it seemed so plain: Courtesy of a lovely friend though, I got this and it is a fantastic little kit! It is perfect for the no brainer, easy clean eye look – when you’re in a rush, when you have a job interview, etc. You get Boi-ing concealer (undereye) and three complementary brown/peachy shades and brushes to apply them. The powders are VERY soft […]
I went to the Benefit Counter today to pick up their new Creme Eyeshadows in Skinny Jeans, a medium peweter shade. I swiped a few other colours of the back of my hand but didn’t buy antything else. Now, 6 hours later, the colours has stayed pristine on the back of my hair! Needless to say it has created a new lemming! I am loving the look of the darker shades, Stilleto and Towne Car […]
Over at HQHair, I’ve spotted some fab Benefit products – ‘The Best Of Benefit 2007’ set, for £39.50 containing BADgal lash.Dr. Feelgood, Benetint (I don’t see why its the best of 2007 – these are Benefits bestsellers any year! I think a set containing Rush Hour, High Brow and That Girl primer would be more 2007. Second palette, Powder Pop, contains Hoola, Dandelion & Dallas for £25. I am tempted by this since these powders […]
