Now I really apologise for the quality of these photos what with winter here and nights drawing in, getting enough light is kind of tricky! However, I edited as best I could… But with out further ado here is a Benefit gem, a Boots exclusive! The Best of Benefit!
The set includes 6 best sellers; POREfessional primer, they’re Real mascara, Hoola bronzer, benetint, boi-ing concealer and high beam highlighter! I really wanted to try the minis and my mum kindly bought this for me after a tooth op!
POREfessional is Benefit’s No.1 primer (according to the box,) and its different to how I thought it would be! When it first comes out of the tube it is foundation colour which really surprised me! When you rub it into your skin it goes clear and makes your skin so soft and smooth. As I don’t have large pores I can’t see much difference, however I like it. Especially the smell!
It also came with the famous they’re Real mascara which I have been longing to try for ages but couldn’t really afford. After using it though my lashes were amazing! So much longer, it is now nearly as good as my Rimmel Scandal Eyes Retro Glam mascara!
I also got their famous Hoola bronzer, which I swear everyone has! This is a small sample size which is really cute and handbag size! It’s a matte bronzer with a velvety feel and it actually suits my pale skin tone! Result!
bene-tint and high beam are amazing products, already owning high beam, (and loving it,) was a huge reason why I wanted the set so badly! bene-tint is a lovely rose lip and cheek tint. I am not a great lover of lip tints as I find they dry my lips however, for cheeks they look lovely! This one, also as it smells of roses!
boi-ing concealer is as benefit describe it as a ‘industrial strength’ concealer. It does literally cover everything, under eye circles, spots etc! 01 matches my shade, sadly 02 is wayyy to dark!
This is the perfect set for people who are just getting into high end makeup, or even someone who travels a lot as the set is all mini’s!
