Beautiful Benefit Beauty Products
After a long and tiring two weeks of moving house and being without internet for the entire time (which nearly killed me), I am back and so excited to be reviewing and blogging for the fabulous beauty brand Benefit. Over the coming year expect lots of info and advice about their latest and greatest products ladies. I don’t know about all you lovely ladies but when your always busy it tends to be easier to just stick to products you know and like because there’s nothing worse than trying a new product and just not liking it, wasting money and time and having to go back and buy your original product. That is where I come in, I’ll be continuing to review all the wonderful products new, old and trends on the market to give you quick fix advice to check into when your on the look out for some new products, from my own personal opinion of course. Personally my skin tends to verge more on the dry side so if you’ve got oily skin my reviews are just a guide to the products and how they work for little old MOI!! So, here are my list of Benefit Beauty Products!
Ok so first on my list of products is STAY FLAWLESS – Its a 15 hour primer base which will be available to buy after the 27th of June 2013.
Basically ladies it does what it says on the tin, which if your blonde like me really helps..Stay Flawless works overtime! Benefits instant PRO-long primer acts like a magnet to lock on your foundation for 15 fresh & flawless hours. This invisible stick primer glides directly onto skin for optimal wear and a natural-looking finish. Go longer. Stay flawless! The best way to apply this primer is to glide this primer stick directly onto skin, then immediately apply foundation, blending together on face.
Here’s what women all over thought and the results are flawless:
94% said it helps foundation last longer*
97% saw an improvement in the look of skin/complexion*
94% said it increased foundation coverage*
97% said it enhanced foundation’s performance*

Benefits Beauty tip
Do the twist! Remember to turn the stick down before replacing cap.
This primer is available online and in store for £24.50
Ok so now onto my second product POREfessional PRO BALM which minimises the appearance of pores, this product retails at £24.50. Did you know that POREfessional is the UK’s best-selling primer* and was also a finalist for Best New Make-up Product at the CEW Beauty Awards, 2012.
This popularity speaks volumes girls and rightly so, I can honestly say I have tried hundreds of products out there on the market from the cheapest to bottles and creams in the hundred’s and this is such a find.
I dont think any women/girl can be without this in her makeup cupboard. After my first application my skin felt like velvet so soft and amazing but also seemed to reduced the fine lines around my eyes. Yay!
The science behind POREfessional Pro Balm is to quickly minimise the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. The Pro Balm also contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals.

Benefits Beauty tip
Apply the POREfessional from the center of the face outward by patting lightly with fingertips…pay particular attention to the T-zone area.
Keep it in your bag for touch-ups during the day, or for a step by step guide
My final product of the day is They’re Real Beyond Mascara, which is the UK’s No.1 best-selling mascara* and listed on Debenhams March 2012 Ultimate 20 Must-Haves You Can’t Live Without, voted Best Mascara. If your anything like me and addicted to extra long luscious lashes this is a definate essential in your make-up bag. I have the shortest sparsest lashes and use fake lashes regularly but ‘They’re Real’ do the trick that millions of other mascaras claim to yet ‘They’re Real’ do lengthen, curl, volumize, lift & separate your lashes. The jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had! This retails at £19.50.
