Why I’ve Changed My Mind About Benefit Cosmetics

benefit

Benefit cosmetics used to be one of my ‘go-to’ brands when I was younger. I remember absolutely loving how they looked and always kept up with the new releases. However, as I’ve gotten older I started to feel slightly out of touch with the branding. Take last year’s advent calendar launches for example – the packaging and advertising surrounding this was so far off my age range it’s unreal.

Recently however, a lovely parcel of samples arrived at my desk (press gifted by the brand) and I decided to put them to the test and have a play around with everything. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything revolutionary that I hadn’t seen before, but everything looked stylishly packaged and not overly gimmicky so I was excited to delve in! Here are 3 of the products I absolutely loved trying out and that I’ll definitely be using daily from now on.

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil

I’m not great at filling in my brows and I don’t like anything too severe. The Benefit goof proof brow pencil is the best brow pencil I’ve used in a long time. The shade 3 suits my colouring perfectly and the fine pointed tip makes drawing in natural looking brows a total breeze.

I’ve found myself reaching for this every day, over any other brow products I own and I can’t rave about it enough! If you have trouble either making your brows look natural, or you’re just not great at filling them in yourself – you need to give the Benefit goof proof brow pencil a go as it definitely lives up to its name!

Benefit Gimmie Brow

I couldn’t write this without also mentioning the Benefit Gimmie Brow gel. This is perfect for days when you need to give your brows a quick fix but don’t have time to faff about. Run this through them and they instantly look thicker! Perfect for on-the-go makeup or for travel.

Benefit Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer

Now this is the absolute star of the show for me. I may be late to the party when it comes to discovering the Benefit boi-ing Airbrush Concealer, but oh my goodness! As someone who has quite prominent dark circles under their eyes (autoimmune diseases play havoc with your sleeping patterns!) I feel as though this is the concealer I have always wanted in my life!

The texture of this concealer is soft and blendable. It sinks into your skin beautifully and you can either use your fingers to apply or go in with a very soft fluffy concealer brush (this is my preferred way) and you are left with bright and fresh looking skin with dark circles perfectly hidden.

I love everything about this concealer – the formula is the absolute dream and the coverage is faultless. I always finish with a tiny bit of translucent powder just to set the whole look into place, et voila!
