Benefit Cosmetics makeup and skin care haul, including foundation, perfume and more
Benefit Cosmetics is one of the brands that actually drew me into makeup. I first saw their products in 2010 and I was hooked by the packaging on the spot - I have been a firm fan of Porefessional from then, and have been repurchasing and hoarding it. Apart from the Hydra Smooth Lip Colors I swatched and reviewed here, I picked up some more makeup and skin care from Benefit Cosmetics from my trip in December, including repurchases. Here's what I hauled:
  1. Fake Up Concealer in Medium
  2. Gimme Brow
  3. Hello Flawless liquid foundation in I'm So Money Honey
  4. Hello Flawless compact in I'm Cute As A Bunny Honey
  5. Noelle perfume
  6. It's Potent Eye Cream
I used to be a BrowZings person when it came to filling my eyebrows until December. I've discovered Gimme Brow and It. Is. Dang. Amazing. I'll do a detailed review in another few weeks of my trial run but I can't wait to share my love for this product with you. HOW do they invent these revolutionary products?

Next up: Fake Up - the hydrating concealer. My under-eye area is super-dry now, thanks to lack of sleep and constantly staring at the computer screen. So this is a god-send. First thoughts - the coverage is a tad sheer but buildable, but the hydration is really good.

The Hello Flawless foundation and compact are repurchases of my joint-favourite liquid foundation (Bourjois 10-Hour Sleep Effect being the other) and a very, very good compact for touch-ups and for use as powder foundation (not my favourite powder foundation - Shiseido Sheer Mattifying Compact wins that round). I love the names of Hello Flawless, though - I'm So Money Honey and I'm Cute As A Bunny Honey.

It's Potent is the latest eye cream to enter my stash during my quest for a Holy Grail eye cream that hydrates, eliminates dark circles and erases fine lines. I'll take time to open it, as I have quite a few other eye creams lined up, but will definitely see if this is The One.

I am a huge fan of the Benefit Crescent Row perfumes and think they are entirely underestimated, especially Carmella, Lee Lee and Rita. I didn't like Sasha - it smelled of medicine. Noelle is the latest addition to the set and it is awesome! It is suitable for day and night - a bit more for night - and lasts well enough! Look at that gorgeous packaging.

So that's the Benefit haul. I wanted to do this via a YouTube video but am having work crunches.

    1. It has to be one of the best liquid foundations available in the market!

  2. Seems kinda strange and different (in a good way) to see a benefit haul without any of the tints (Benetint, Cha Cha etc) but then I know you're not a blush person. The Fake Up concealer sounds wonderful. Review that and the Hello Flawless foundation and Noelle fragrance.

    1. It is very good! Coverage is on the sheerer side - buildable to medium - but it is very hydrating!
