Buying Benefit



I was originally going to get a lipstick and foundation from MAC but then I found that my local Debenhams didn't have a MAC counter so I thought I would have a look at what Benefit was offering. If you read my June Wishlist you'll remember that I wanted the Benefit Hello Flawless foundation so seeing as I couldn't get the MAC Studio Fix Fluid that I originally went for, I bought Hello Flawless instead.

The lovely lady at the Benefit counter also showed me the new They're Real Push Up Liner and was explaining how it worked (I did already know because I have read so many posts on it which all persuaded me into buying it) and because I adore wearing eyeliner I thought I might as well give this a try.

I haven't really had time to try either of these but from what little swatching I've done on the back of my hand, these two look like they are going to be winners. They're Real seems to be quite easy to use to me, it comes out in a thin black line that only needs one coat and it is opaque but if you want a thicker line then you just have to go over it. Hello Flawless seems like a lovely foundation to wear, it gives a dewy finish that has a light covereage but can be build-able (this is what I was told). I quite like light to medium coverage foundations so I think I will be getting along with this just fine.

I think a spending ban is now in need so no more mini hauls for me.
