Hello my lovely ladies! How are we all? I hope you’re all having a good week – the weather is truly amazing today (summer is totally coming our way!). On Thursday I was invited to a Benefit event in the launch of their new product ‘FINDING MR. BRIGHT‘ along with a sneak peak into their skincare range. I’ll show you all the skincare range in a separate post as it could get a very lengthy to add into this one & have way to many pictures for anyone’s liking!
We got there & I decided to play around with their lipsticks as I’ve heard so many great things about them. I was so SURPRISED to how soft & balm like their lipsticks felt! I’m addicted to summery, bright colours recently so had to swatch a couple of corals!
I love this combo – I would have put it on my lips but I already had a Costa Chic on already & we were soon whisked away downstairs to their preview of their first ever interactive YouTube video along with a SNEAK PEAK into their skin care range. We saw a quick demo of how & where to apply the products inside Finding Mr. Bright along with meeting various members of the Benefit marketing team. The marketing manager was HILARIOUS!
They had the cutest Benefit cupcakes for everyone to eat once we all headed back upstairs. Not only did they look good but they tasted SCRUMPTIOUS! I had 2
We were all sent away with a cute little suitcase-looking goodie bag with Finding Mr. Bright & some samples of their perfumes.
RRP: £28.50 available HERE.
I personally have quite a few Benefit products but not any of their cult ones – which this includes so I was really EXCITED to try them out Here are Benefit’s 5 tips to finding Mr. Bright…
All 4 MINI products are inside a lovely & bright box. Here we’ve got Girl Meets Pearl, Posie Tint, High Beam & Erase Paste. Here we go with the swatches dolls!
The ‘Posie Tint’ can stain – so be aware & be sure to blend quickly!! I’m not much of a highlighter girl but I do prefer ‘Girl Meets Pearl’ due to it’s subtleness. I was very impressed with Erase paste. I got it put in me during the event & it instantly brightened the skin underneath my eyes!! Most of my concealers just cover up but I find that this somewhat ILLUMINATES the skin – without it looking shiny/shimmery (if that makes sense?)! Overall, I think Finding Mr. Bright is a perfect kit for those who are always on the go or like a little touch up during the day. It’s the PERFECT combination of products to give you a brighter complexion :) But I wouldn’t recommend it for those who use these products religiously – as I don’t think it would last you very long!
I caved in & got myself their most recent addition of blusher, BELLA BAMBA! I had seen it many times & have had my eye on it for a while now. After getting it applied to my cheeks I knew I had to have it!
It’s one of the most STUNNING golden-pink blushers I have seen in a while! It’s got 3 dimensions of pink to brighten, sculpt & define your face. It’s described as a 3D PINK. With it’s gold flakes inside – it does most of the contouring for you! Since I’m going on holiday this year, I thought it would be the perfect blush to take with me It also smells like watermelon & sherbet - YUMMY!
You can see the little gold flakes in the blush! It looks much pinker on your cheeks. I’ve actually been wearing it every day since… Yes even today, sitting at home with nothing to do LOL!
In flash you can see the effect of it even more! I was stuck between Bella Bamba & Hoola. But, Hoola is definitely next on my list of things to get Lisa, who is the head MUA at Benefit, said she wears it EVERYWHERE. This includes it as an eye shadow & even on her lips!!
Bella Bamba & Costa Chic on my lips… & Bella Bamba on my cheeks!
Yep you guessed it! I had it tried out on my lips. LOVE it! It totally gave a golden coral look to my already Costa Chic lips! I wouldn’t wear this on a daily basis but definitely if I’m going out somewhere All in all the event was lovely! I’d like to thank the entire Benefit team for such a wonderful event. Even the MD popped down – it seemed like the whole team was there, like a big family! Again, it was lovely to meet all the bloggers there too…
(L-R) Me & WANDE.
