BRAND FOCUS | BENEFIT COSMETICS


I wanted to do a little blog post feature about all my favourite brands, and showcase each one individually, basically gushing about why I love them so much. My first Brand Focus of course had to be about my beloved Benefit Cosmetics. I actually really adore the story of how Benefit was founded by two sisters. They tossed a coin to decided whether they'd open a beauty boutique or a casserole cafe and boy am I happy they picked beauty boutique. Their first two products ever produced were their blushes and their Rosy Tint (later named Benetint), which I love because I think the tints and the blushes are what they do best. I'm also a sucker for their packaging and the adorable vintage vibe. I'm always so excited to showcase the products on my counter and they are always a feature on my make up caddy.  

Within this post I wanted to talk about my favourite products, which aren't over hyped or overly talked about within the beauty community. Everyone loves the They're Real Mascara and Liner because they're great and of course many have raved about my favourite e under eye concealer Fake Up, but I wanted to talk about some of the products that don't get the limelight they deserve. 

Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow (No Pressure) - This product promises to be creaseless and it delivers. I have super oily eyelids (delightful, I know) and this stays on all day. No Pressure is an amazing colour, it's a metallic taupe which is great for every day wear and it's my go to on during the week. Everyone always compliments me when I'm wearing this, so it's a winner!

Hydra Smooth Lip Colour (Dare me and Fling Thing) - First and Foremost, these two gems are displayed in the most amazing packaging. It reminds me of vintage Barbie, and who doesn't love Barbie? On top of the amazing packaging, the formula of these lipsticks are dreamy. They're Opaque, but not too much of a punch of colour, perfect for every day. They feel amazing on the lips and don't dry out your lips at all. 

Hello Flawless Powder- While the liquid foundation may not agree with my skin (it breaks me out which upsets me because it's gives an amazing finish), the powder foundation is amazing. This formulation is too die for, at keeping my matte all day without making it dull. It is a lifesaver to touch up throughout the day, especially with my crazy oily t-zone. P.S Excuse all the crazy brush marks,  I may be overly eager when using this gem. 

Overall, Benefit Cosmetics is love! If you haven't checked out their products you really should! If you have checked out their products let me know which ones are your favourite, I love trying out new things. Any excuse to buy more make up, right?  *insert love heart eyes emoji*

  4. I'm so happy you mentioned the Hello Flawless powder! It's one of the only powders I have found that doesn't leave me looking cakey and helps me to keep oil away! I love mine, I recently hit complete pan and immediately ran out to Myer to repurchase! I love Benefit! Great post :)
