There’s no surprise that I’m a lover of Benefit Cosmetics. Many of their products have turned into holy grails and I find myself using this brand every single time I do my makeup. Recommending all of my favourite Benefit products is a little excessive. So let’s start with My Top 5 From Benefit Cosmetics.
Benefit Gimme Brow* is a product that I think I can never replace. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’d know how true that statement is because I’ve used it consistently for the last 3 years, at least. Gimme Brow is great brow setting gel, that has tiny little fibres to add a bit of extra volume. I personally love it most during the day when I use a brow powder to fill in my little brows. I then swipe this over the top to set things in place. Sometimes when my brows are out of control, I’ll even use it at night time ontop of a pomade for an extra hand. The shade that I use is number 5.
I’ve been in love with the Benefit Porefessional Agent Zero Shine* ever since the first time I used it. This product is the number one thing that I recommend to anyone with oily skin. It’s the easiest way to add longevity to makeup and lessen the oils throughout the day. It’s essentially a super close to translucent powder, in very easy to use packaging. Seriously, get amongst it. If you want to see how it exactly works, check out my post here.
Benefit Whats Up completely changed my highlighter game. Stay tuned because I have a post on exactly why coming up very soon. But as a quick preview, this one highlighter has basically doubled my highlight collection. This is is the ultimate cream highlighter to layer with and it really makes my highlighter pop, without looking oily. The formula is incredible and I can even use it on top of the powder that I’ve set my face with.
As you can see, I have DEFINITELY hit pan on my Benefit Coralista Blush. I’ve had this blush for years on end and I used to be extremely addicted to it. It was one of those blushes where I decided it was so good, that I didn’t even want to bother trying anything else. Well, I slowly became a beauty blogger and the rest was history. Poor Coralista got lost in my drawer and I only rediscovered it late last year. I’m pretty disappointed that I didn’t touch it in such a long time! It is the perfect blush for a gorgeous light, sheen, blush that you can also build up depending on how much pressure you use. I’m definitely repurchasing this!
Last year, I did a post comparing Benefit’s Hoola and Dew the Hoola which you can see here. I initially thought that Hoola was really buttery and quite nice. But, I was never completely attached. One of my best friends however almost has the identical skin colour to me and she kept rockin it. It looked amazing, so I decided to give it a few more shots. Fair enough, I’m hooked! I find that using Hoola as a lighter contour or bronzer over my already slightly defined cheekbones works so well, especially at night time.
