Haulin' #12: Benefit Beauty Bits

It's that time again; I've bought more makeup. I've actually only ever bought one product from Benefit which was the Bad Gal Lash mascara which I hated and dried up extremely quickly. The only other products I've used have been freebies in Magazines. These products were bought over two visits, one to Boots, and another to House of Fraser as I had a gift card. I love the branding of Benefit, the bright colours and quirky quotes. It's pricey, but I think the products I've purchased have been well worth it.

Benefit The Porefessional Shine-Vanishing PRO Powder £24.50
I had heard so much about this and after trying it several times now, it definitely is worth the hype. The brush and powder dispenser can be a bit fiddly, but it means you can get the right amount of product and concentrate it where you want it rather than looking full on matte all over.

Benefit They're Real Mascara £19.50
I am a total They're Real mascara convert, fortunately for my eyelashes, unfortunately for my bank balance. I have been using a mini that came in my Latest in Beauty box and completely fell in love. No other Mascara makes my eyelashes as long and thick as this and I can't imagine not using this now.

Benefit Pretty Porefect Primer Set - £24.50
I picked up the Porefessional primer on its own up and went to the till in House of Fraser. Luckily the lovely lady on the Benefit counter told me this little set was the same price, so I snapped this up. I already have the 'That Gal' Primer and wasn't wowed by it like the Porefessional, but I'm sure I'll get some use out of it. I don't use an eye cream in my skincare routine, so I'm happy to try out this tiny It's Potent eye cream. I've been meaning to purchase he full size of the Porefessional for a while now after using several samples from magazines. I first bought the Maybelline Baby Skin primer to avoid Benefit's £24.50 price tag, but it just didn't even compare.

Benefit Go Tropical Set £24.50
I bought this set for no other reason than I had some money on a House of Fraser gift card. I love being able to try out lots of different little products rather than one full size. It includes a mini Coralista brush, mini Cha Cha Tint and High Beam, a full size Coralista lip gloss and blush brush. I have always been intrigued by the liquid tints and highlights by Benefit, but would never ever pay £19.50 each for them. The only qualm I have with this set is that the blush isn't in its own individual package.
