BENEFIT HOW TO LOOK THE BEST AT EVERYTHING / LIGHT



Benefit will always be my favourite, they hold a special place in my heart. A few weeks ago I bought up a Feel Unique haul and treated myself to some new little benefit products! You can find that haul here [LINK

I've been giving this set a good go now, so much so that some of these products are nearly used up! This is in the 'light' range but you can get a 'medium' and a 'dark' shade range too. I obviously went for the light, and can say it was a good choice and good colouring. Sometimes you see packs that are 'one size fits all' and doesnt fit AT ALL. 

I wouldn't say a porcelain could work this shade, but its good for 'fair' skintones. If in doubt, visit the boutiques or counters to get a match!

Within the set you get, Porefessional Primer, if you've read The Beauty Type before, you'll know how much I love this stuff, its liquid god to me! This stuff makes makeup last, and skin perfect for makeup. I've said it so often so I'll save the raving but perfect primer for foundation and makeup wear. 

Hello, Flawless! Oxygen WOW Foundation in Cheers to Me, which I was thoroughly surprised by! I really like this foundation, I was concerned it was going to be a bit too light for me, but it works as a great medium build foundation with a good coverage and one pump is plenty for the face. If I want heavy coverage two pumps creates a great base. It also gives a great luminosity to the skin, so yes its not a matte foundation but gives a really healthy look to the skin. I am tempted to buy the full size of this foundation for sure!

For concealer you get Bo-ing Industrial Concealer in 01 and 02 , I love that they gave you both shades in this set in a really great little container. I like to mix the two concealers to create a bit more coverage and both of the shades mixed together also create the perfect shade to compliment the foundation.  

Then to set everything is the Hello Flawless Face powder in Me Vain? Champagne.  I really love using this powder to set everything together, it keeps the glow from the foundation underneath but takes away the bad type of shine and makes the face really look flawless, it seems to be a heavier powder but saying that you couldn't get away with wearing just this. It does help the foundation to last a lot longer throughout the day and when you want a touch up you can just use the powder to set it and take away shine again!

The little brush hasn't been any use to me as its not at all applicable for any of the products and I prefer to use my own brushes or fingers for the concealer. 

It has taken me over two months use the foundation up, and I managed to get every drop out. I used the foundation nearly everyday but with a few days of exception.  The primer was gone in a few weeks, I like to use a big pea amount of this each time, whether you should or not is your choice but I like to use a lot to really smooth the surface of my skin.  The concealers have hit pan on the lighter colour but still a good few weeks of use left, ditto with the face powder which has now hit pan but still plenty left.

All in all a great set, I have found a love for all the products, annoyingly I reckon I'd only get my desired look with all of these products which could work out costly for full size however I'd probably be quite happy to buy this set again as it works out a great price and perfect for travelling too with a fairly big decent mirror on the cover too. With the box being sturdy itself. 

The set costs £25.50 from Feel Unique and can be found [HERE].
