Hey there girlies.
During my time in London, I got some new cosmetics to try out. This is just a part of it so, STAY TUNED. I was walking around at a mall and saw the Benefit boutique and just had to stop by and look. I’ve always walked past them and looked at their products but never really got down to getting anything from them. SO! I figure this should be the time!! One thing i really adore about Benefit is their delightful packaging. I LOVE the vintage look and how its always so innovative and feminine!
Heres the loot :
BAD gal Lash Mascara
This bad “gal” right here does wonders for my lashes. Which came to a surprise to me because usually, mascara that volumizes my lashes dont really work on mine. Mine are thin and straight and usually need to be curled for an eternity before it can actually look decent. This mascara has the kind of formula that doesnt clump but adds lots of volume! Great for people who want to try out mascara for the first time, and also great for the pros as well!
At first I was a little confused when i heard “foundation faker”. It basically is a “creme-to-powder” consistency, and goes on your skin SUPER smooth and evens out your skin tone perfectly, which is exactly what foundation is supposed to be. I find many people mistake foundation to be a cover-up as well, which leads their face to be “cakey”. When in reality, you only need a little! A little goes a long way!! This is pretty incredible. It blended super well into my skin, and really made my skin look so even! Do try it out!
OK, firstly, I have to say this. This primer is not a bad primer. I LOVE THE PROMO VIDEOS FOR IT. Look it up if you wanna see it. Totally adorable. The primer is slightly tinted, and goes on real smooth, just like usual primers do. It fills up a lot of lines or pores, giving the illusion of beautiful smooth skin. AND it lasts pretty much the whole day. I found it interetsing that you can put it both on top of and below your make up. The usual primers I know of is only for under the skin. So that was pretty cool. I like the way it made my skin feel!
This concealer is the bomb. Seriously. When it comes to best coverage, this is IT. It just covers and blends so efficiently into your skin! Its incredible. Im pretty sure if you’re just running out to the store outside and want to look a little bit more presentable, just put this little baby on your little imperfections and BOOM you’re ready to go. So good.
I’m completely loving this foundation so far. It goes on REAL light on my skin, which is great for me cause I hate feeling heavy and gross. Half a pump of this beauty and it covers your whole face. Remember, FOUNDATION IS FOR EVENING OUT SKIN TONE, NOT COVERAGE, THAT’S CONCEALER. Like I said above, you wanna stay away from the “cake face” OOOH, thats a nono.
Tripple Performing Facial Emulsion
This moisturizer was not too bad. It went on a little heavy, but made my skin feel oh so smooth. In comparison to my other face moisturizer I picked up from LUSH (vanishing creme), this one makes my face a little oily, where as the other one gets completely absorbed into my skin. What kind of moisturizer do you like? Leave a comment and let me know!!
Ah, finally, last product for today’s post. I was going for about 2 months without a scrub, and I began to break out. So I headed over to Tescos and grabed this little bad boy. It’s not too hard on the skin! I like exfoliators that really get rid of dead skin while taking care of the condition of my skin. This one seems to do not only both, but treat acne too. BTW, when I say take care of the condition of my skin, I mean like, moisturizes it at the same time. Whenever I finish using this, I instantly feel refreshed, my skin that is.
So this is is for now, more reviews and fashion haul coming up soon!!
xoxo, Sarah ❤
