If you follow Benefit Cosmetics on Instagram, like me you too often lust after the beautifully packaged products while my student pockets cry in agony.
But every once in a while (birthday, extra holiday money, student loan day) I invest in one little piece.
The great thing about high end products like Benefit is, although you pay that but extra, you definitely pay for quality.
Roller Lash is the best mascara I’ve ever used, properly curling my lashes the use of a lash curler, a contraption I’ve always seen as a little bit torturous.
They’re Real Push Up Liner takes a fair few practices to get the hang of, but once you do it’s staying power is like no other. I’m yet to master a great cat eye wing, but I’m working on it.
My POREfessional is a mini tester version, just to see if I liked it before The Great Investment. I wasn’t expecting a lot to be honest, but knock me down I’ve grown to love it! Perfect for those pesky nose pores that always look awful beneath my glasses.
My most recent purchase is the Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer which has been a godsend with my skin recently. Can be used really sparingly because a little goes such a long way, and has let me actually leave the house recently.
If you’re thinking of investing high end, I’d definitely recommend Benefit, especially for key investment make up looks like these!
