As I grew from a child to a teenager, I inevitably wanted to start wearing a bit more make up and try to make myself look more like an adult. Unfortunately for me, I was in school and wasn’t old enough to be earning my own money yet. I would end up going through all of my mums makeup bags trying to find something I can put on my face to look as grown up and unlike me as possible.
I soon found my favourite products of hers that I used more and more, probably until they were empty (sorry mum) happened to be all of the Benefit range she had.
- WIN £50 With Lemon Loco!! (Competition)
- Travelling Will Improve Your Mental Health
- Remember, You Don’t Have To Take On The World Alone
- 10 Handmade Gift Ideas To Get Creative With This Christmas
- Where Have I Been?
Now I’m actually an adult and no longer live with her, it’s a little more tricky for me to steal her stuff. So I got my own. I reminisced my teen-aged years, trying to look old enough to pass for 18 as I bought my own Benefit make up, and my little addiction started. Thanks mum.
Here are all of the best (in my opinion)
It’s Potent! Eye Cream
This was the first Benefit product I ever bought – I’ve always had rubbish skin around my eyes with dark circles & it’s been a gem. Fab bits are..
- it’s hydrating & moisturising
- blends well with make up
- last forever as you only need the tiniest amount!
CHEEKLEADERS Bronze Squad
The one I currently own has sadly been discontinued but this is the most similar product I can find. I LOVE the blush boxes and use mine every time I apply make up. Great features include..
- whole box worth £130!
- 5 products for different looks
- full sized brush included
Roller Lash Mascara
This is the only mascara I use and I swear by it. Often I don’t have much time in the morning, so if I need a little lift I sometimes pop this on before work and it makes your eyes POP and suddenly you look so much more awake. I love it because
- It’s water resistant
- It lasts all day on me!
- Easy application & doesn’t clump
I love this concealer so much that I’ve already posted about how fab it is (which you can read here). As I said earlier, I always look tired no matter how much sleep I’ve had so it’s great to have a concealer that has a hydrating barrier around the outside. Some fab bits are
- very natural looking
- easy to use because it’s like a lipstick!
- complete coverage & lasts hours
This is a little more on the expensive side but it’s the value pack so you get more for your money (there is a cheaper one available to try out here). This balm is slightly tinted but you can see results right away.
- Number 1 selling prestige primer in the UK
- Full coverage
- Keeps make up in place
Hoola Matte Bronzer
I initially had this in the mini size as it came with a Birchbox subscription. I’ve never been a bronzer gal but as I used it more and more I grew to love it! It’s fab because
- 4 shades available
- Number 1 selling prestige bronzer in the UK
- Built in mirror & brush included

That concludes today’s little make up post. If you have never tried any Benefit products then I would really recommend you try because they are FAB!
