Benefit Review;

I've recently bought myself alot of Benefit makeup (and some ive been collecting for a while) and the majority i'm very pleased with, even with the price tag.
I just thought i'd write a quick blog for everyone as when spending that much money you want to know if it's worth it, especially if there are no testers at the time.
Any other questions please ask, i'm not doing this to show off/think i know everything it's just quick and simple and hopefully helpful!

Erase Paste; £18.50 ''This concentrated, creamy concealer brightens and camouflages in one easy step! Targets dark circles, discoloration and imperfections.''
In my opinion; this is amazing! It's beautifully thick without being too much, i have the palest one (as im really pale) and it's a little light for me and a little lighter than my foundation, but even with that in mind it blends brilliantly under and over the foundation...well worth it!

Lemon Aid; £16.50 ''Our soft, lemon yellow cream helps to hide redness and discoloration on your eyelids. In a snap, eyes look refreshed, frisky, and ready for fun.''
Undecided on this, good if you're having a bad day or have been crying the day before :')
Abit pointless for everyday wear (even if i do) or if you have natural really red eyes

BadGal Lash;-£15.50 ''Sexy, sultry, pure unadulterated black mascara for full, voluminous lashes. It's as BAD as you want to be!''
I'm used to wear LOTS of mascara (i tend to wear 3different ones at once) so compared to that it's thin, even compared to most it's thin, it's nice though, soft enough to not leave you like your eyelashes will fall out, especially when it comes to taking it off.

BadGal Liner; £14 ''This big, BAD, black eye pencil is a beauty addict's dream and a makeup artist's must-have. Dark, smoky, mysterious...being BAD never looked so good!''
Very soft and smudgy, good if you like smokey eyes and thick eyeliner, abit pointless for me for everyday as i don't wear alot of eyeliner, but great for nights out etc.

DR FeelGood Velvety Complexion Balm; £20.50 ''Mattify shine with our invisible, weightless balm. Leaves skin silky to the touch. ''
i find this really pointless, but maybe its just my face as i know alot of people swear by it, it's supposed to smooth out fine lines without or over makeup...i don't see the big deal, but maybe i need to be shown how to use it.

Georgia Blush; £23.50 ''Our just peachy face powder leaves your complexion warm and vibrant. Georgia is a's peaches and cream!''
I love this it's gorgeous, such a soft colour, great as as soft blush or eyeshadow, personally have never used as a face powder but i guess it'd be lovely.

Ohh La Lift; £15.50 ''Legendary under-eye brightening boost...this delicate pink balm is like an instant eyelift!''
this is wonderful, great for lightening dark circles, perfectly brightening.

Miss Popularity; £17.50 ''Turn up your "all that" appeal with miss popularity. All you need is our new precision highlighter in all the right places and you're "all that" just like that. This soft white shimmering highlighter makes it so easy.''
i think this is so impressive, it works on 4 or 5 seperate parts of your face, with an instruction manual built into the box, great packaging though.

Lipstick; £13 ''Our flattering silky-finish lipsticks are sheer and buildable, so you can customize your look: a light wash of color for au natural gals or an amped-up POP of color for the drama queen in you! ''
ive only used this once as its not my colour (it came with my phone) but if i recall, very soft and shiney, generally quite nice but probably wouldn't stick for long.

YouRebel Lite; £21.50 ''Our defiantly different tinted moisturizer gives your complexion coverage, moisture and SPF protection all in one. For fair-skinned rebels. ''
not great for me as i don't have good enough skin for tinted moisturiser but i think i'll probably use it the morning after the night before when i can't quite be bothered to clog my face up and i have last nights mascara/lashes on...(yeah, i don't do that alot)

If there's anything else you want to know please let me know, i'll update/post a new blog as and when i buy more to add to my collection.
Please let me know if this was helpful!

with love, Lozzii <3
