Hi everyone hope you are ok, back in February I kept seeing Benefit's "the Pore fessional" pro balm which everybody was raving about, and "They're Real" mascara which was 100% proven to give the effect of false eyelashes in magazines and adverts everywhere....so I went to the Benefit counter in Debenhams and told the make-up artist what I wanted and she did my full make-up and recommending what would be good for my face tone etc....and this is what I bought...
Benefit's "They're Real" Mascara
Although I don't normally like big fat brushes for mascara (I couldn't get away with Benefit's "Bad Girl" mascara years ago) for this reason, this brush is not too big as I have smallish eyes and when using this it does not get mascara all below my eyebrow. Anyways....as you can see from the pictures I think this mascara is a holy grail product (even at £18.50) as it totally transforms my eyelashes to look as though I am wearing false ones, the mascara doesn't cake on the eyelashes giving that clumpy effect, and every time I wear it I instantly feel much better as it gives me that wide awake look. In fact, I have tried a LOT of mascaras (some cheap, some expensive) and think this is the best, definitely worth the price tag! :) It stays on all day, doesn't smudge and doesn't budge when in the shower or swimming, just make sure you use a good eye makeup remover as it does cling on. I think it gives fabulous results!
The Pore fessional Pro Balm
I had read so many reviews about the pro balm and how great it was but I was worried before I bought it that it would make my dry skin worse however this is a great primer for make up but also it is oil free, lightweight, translucent as you can see from the swatch, and feels super silky and just glides onto the skin. It’s as if you can feel it just soaking up any oily-ness from your skin and can feel it tighten.
Benefit “Coralista” Face Powder Blush
I love bright blushes, especially as we are heading into summer soon and my favourite shades are definitely pinks and corals. Whilst the girl was doing my make-up on the counter she recommended this blush and said it suited my face tone lovely. I think it is a gorgeous colour (sorry for the swatch it looks bolder than what it is) but also this has a gorgeous subtle shimmer to it (not glittery as I hate that) but a lovely sheen shimmery frosty finish. I adore this blusher.
THIS IS ME WEARING ALL THREE PURCHASES
