My Top 5 Benefit Products

I know it's been a while since I last blogged due to recurring commitments and what not but I am happy to get back into the routine of blogging! What better way to do that than to share my 5 top gems with you from one of my favorite brands! I hope you enjoy and please do tell me what are your favorite Benefit products are or products you think I should try!

They're Real Mascara:

I know this gets raved about by many people because it is a very popular mascara and it definitely gets the job done. It certainly lengthens your lashes and gives the appearance of false-lashes! I love it! The only downside is sometimes it gets a little clumpy if your not careful but it redeems it self in both its brilliant formula and it has got to be one of the darkest mascaras I have ever used! It is a little on the pricey side but when you compare it with other mascaras you can surely tell the difference!

They're Real Liner:

I am probably one of the worst at doing gel eyeliner. I could never quite get the hang of it when using a brush and my pot seemed to run out or dry quicker than I could use it! Although I do love gel formula and I love applying eyeliner using a pen so this product was perfect for me! I find it more than easy to apply and I rarely make mistakes when using this plus the formula is extremely long-lasting! I love that the color is extremely black because some of my previous eyeliners have looked grey after applying but the color does not fade with this eyeliner!

High Beam:

I mentioned this in my December favorites because it certainly did become a favorite of mine. Instead of using a lighter concealer to highlight I now turn to this simply because it blends very quickly and the highlight is not too obvious but rather subtle! A little goes a long way with this and if you was to have a full-size of this product then it will last for a very long time which is great as your saving money!

Hoola Bronzer:

For someone like me with a pale complexion, bronzers can be very hard to buy! After hearing rave reviews about this I just had to try it out and as predicted I fell in love. I use it in conjunction with high beam to make my face look lovely and enhanced. I love to use this as a contour simply because it is not too harsh or orange for my skin tone and the brush that comes with it is perfect for contouring. Definitely pick this up next time you are at Benefit!

Porefessional Primer:

I'm starting to delve further and further into the world of primers in search of the perfect one for me. After trying Laura Mercier's Foundation primer (which I ended up strongly hating) I turned to this. I have previously tried many samples of this product but never thought to buy it. After saving up my Birchbox points I managed to get it and I couldn't be happier with it. I have somewhat large pores on my nose and this covers them. As well as that my foundation doesn't fade away and sometimes if I don't have time to apply foundation I just apply this and it give my skin that little extra cover-up.
