Recently I bought myself one of of those Benefit make your own kit type things and I thought I'd do a bit of a review!
As you can see above, everything comes in a really cute pink case and you can pick a product from their range for eyes, cheeks and complexion. It was a tough choice, but I eventually decided on the following :
Also,Fun Fact, According to the Benefit website this is the UK's top selling blush!
I've been using this to cover dark circles and brighten up my eye area. It's a tiny tub, but it's very concentrated so a tiny amount will do! I love the consistency of this, it's thick and creamy but also very blendable. It also comes with a spatula which is pretty random! I just use my fingers, I can't really imagine anyone actually using going to the effort of using it! On the downside, I bought the lightest shade and it's still not pale enough to match my skin. This is probably my fault though for rivalling Caspar in terms of complexion. (Think it might be time to move back to Florida...)
One of the appeals to buying the kit is that you actually get to pick a bonus product and I went for the Benebalm. The reviews on this product haven't exactly been raving and I can see why. The colour pay off just isn't as good as you'd expect, it definitely is more of a subtle kind of tinge so people expecting it to have the same pigmentation as Benetint will be disapointed. I do like it though, it gives a nice subtle sheen to the lips with just a hint of colour and it makes my lips feel gloriously soft. That said, if this hadn't been free and I'd paid £14.50 for it I don't think I would have been overly impressed and the chances of me repurchasing are remote!
I took a few photos with the whole lot on my face so you could see what it all looks like once it's been applied!
