I went to the city for a wonder today as I'm home alone untill a wee job comes along (fingers crossed something comes up soon, HIRE ME!!). I went to the make-up department for a new powder as my belovered Mac Studio Fix Powder has hit pan and I'm scraping the sides of whats left. I've been using the Mac powder for a few years so decided I wanted to try Benefit's face powder again as that is what I was using before the Mac. When I was talking to the lovely girl who worked there I was telling her my sitution and the product I used to use. To my unknow pleasure I have upp-ted my tanning and was not that shade any longer but about 2-3 shades darker! Yippeee!!!
Tho the powder I was asking about only came in 3shades, I used to use shade 2 but its now too light and shade 3 was too dark with a orange shade colour too it. She suggested I try the 'Hello Flawless' powder in the shade Beige. I tired it out, liked it, figured I was in need of a new powder and did come to the counter to find somthing new so purchased it. She also showed me what was on offer at that moment. (Usally I don't like the add's that they tell you to try purchase but I always listen and seem intrested because I know its there job to tell us) This time however I was intreged and tempted.. It was the POREfessional pro balm that acts as a primer to help minimize the appearence of pores. I had seen this on a recent YOUTUBE beauty video and new I wanted to try it, but the added benefit was that it came with a mini Erase Paste and a mini Girl Meets Pearl testers. Erase paste was also on my 'To Try' list so said yes to that also!
So from Benefit I walked away buying the powder and POREfessional balm..
& for free I got the mini Erase Paste, the mini Girl Meets Pearl ANDDDDD... out of kindness she offered me free make-up lesson, application and a sample of the new HELLO FLAWLESS Foundation that is coming out on the 28th of April for the launch of the foundation hitting there counter on that date.
So I walked away with 3 mini samples all for free!! && all things I said I wanted to try from Benefit!
The mini sample of the foundation comes in a cute, bottle with a handy pump, perfect for travel! Unfortuntaly they were all out of my colour but I got the closest shade to me just to try out how it feels, sits and lasts on my face.
Looking forward to trying all these products!
MOVING ON FROM EXCITING BENEFITNESS & ONTO..
I purchased two inexpencive brushes from a shop called Gloss.
Small angled powder brush which I will use to fill in my eyebrows and a small concealer brush just for under my eyes. These were about $7.00 each, & they actually feel of really good quailty and are nice and soft.
I keep telling myself that one day I will buy myself a full professional make-up brush set but just haven't yet got around too it. So untill then I will just add to them every now and again. I haven't purchased a new brush in about 2years!! WEOW!
A GIRL CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY NAIL POLISHES..
OPI's Nicki Minaj polish in the colour shade 'FLY'. Super pretty greeny- blue shade. My nails are bare and un-sightly right now so gonna paint them up after I've finished typing this blog!
&& LAST BUT NOT LEAST, A HAIR PRODUCT!
Redken's satinwear ultimate blow-dry lotion. I haven't yet used this as I only wash my hair every other day so in turn only blow drying my hair every other day also. But I've heard super good reviews on this product and am wanting to get my hair back into tip- top condition again. With the amount of heat that I use on my hair to tame and style my frizzy bap this hopefully will do wonders.
So in conclusion all these products are currently unused but I'm looking forward to applying them to my face, hair or nails && will tell you all my honest opinion of what I think of them once they have been used!!
Does anyone have or use any of these products?? What do you think? Let me know!
