Top 5 Benefit products

With the launch of Benefit's new Brow collection looming; I thought today I'd join in with the Bene-party and bring you my top 5 Benefit products of all time. When I first got into makeup; buying anything from Benefit seemed like a world away. I was entranced by the colours and the sheer beauty of each product and was only able to, a year ago, finally afford to buy myself my first high end product: Benefit's Roller Lash...


There is nothing that I can say about this product negatively. I have raved about this many many a time but the love affair all started with a free sample in Elle magazine just after the Roller Lash launch at the start of 2015. My lashes have always been long but adding volume was a problem. I have never been happier with a mascara before and we have just gone past our 1 year anniversary together and expect that to continue until we're both old and grey. 


I've said it a thousand times but I'll say it again. Acne. The bane of my teenage existence. I can't explain to you the amount of redness and scarring on my face from a few years ago that seemingly nothing could cover. Until I made a late night spontaneous purchase from Debenhams and along came this baby. I actually received a sample of shades 1 and 2 shortly after buying this so have been using shade 1 since and am yet to touch the full sized product. Even the tester (From Benefit's Selection Box 2015) has lasted so so so long as a little really does go a long way and doesn't look half used yet either!


 I'm a foundation horder. It's the product that I collect the most and love trying new ones out when I can. So it was pretty obvious that I was eventually going to have to pick this one up and give it a go. The Hello Flawless foundation is very lightweight (surprising that I genuinely do love it seeing as I go for heavier ones usually) but perfect for the summer. At the start, I really wasn't sure whether I got on with it due to the consistency, but after a few's really growing on me...


The bottle is gorgeous. Not something you should really consider when purchasing, but something to enjoy as a bonus. I use this on those days when I don't want a full face of makeup and would rather focus on helping my skin out rather than hinder it and packing the pores. Its a lovely formula and gives moisture to the dry patches. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for anyone with very oily skin as it doesn't seem to be able to control the oiliness too well. Overall however it's a lovely product!


The They're Real mascara is the UK's bestselling mascara so it was hard to see how this product could go wrong. It is a brown shade, a primer for mascara but could also be used as a mascara itself for those with finer/fairer lashes. I use this before my Roller Lash and adore the combination! It makes sure that the lashes aren't clumpy and does last all day!
