Hey Everyone!

bathina

I confess, I’m obsessed. When I pop the cap open and smell Bathina, it takes me back to my Uni days. I wore this scent during my 2nd year of Uni when my friend gave it to me as a gift. I started wearing it after my shower daily and after that, I loved it so much, I kept wearing it out. For a while until the bottle finished, it became my classic and signature scent. That says a lot since I’m quite picky with..well how I smell.

Benefit’s Bathina is just one of those scents you can’t forget. It’s something that is perfectly sweet and flirty but still complex and complicated. It smells amazing, and to this, it’s for sure an understatement. No joke, girls. So when I saw the new bottle, you can probably say I was thrilled. The old bottle was just a pink tall glass bottle that was pretty generic. Now, it’s looks like a pink genie is going to pop out of the bottle and grant you three wishes. Now that’s an improvement.

If you’re having a blush emergency, pick up the phone and call…Fine One One! I’ve been recently into cream blushes, something I never really enjoyed until now. I love how they’re totally on the go, they don’t need an additional brush to slap on and they give an irreplaceable natural glow. Here’s my review of a fairly new one that’s hit the market – the Benefit Cosmetics Fine One One!

The Fine One One actually claims to be a brightening stick more than a cream blush. I think the most appropriate category to put this in is a cream blush stick. And seriously, they need more of these around. Open the stick up and you see that it’s much like a stick or lipstick. Use the rotating wheel to get more of the product out like a push pop. Fine One One is made up of three colours – a bright orange, sweetheart candy red and a pearly highlighter – that together create a beautiful peachy glow.

Whenever I pass by the Benefit Counter these days, I’m amazed at how many make-up kits they have. From priming, to eye-shadow to even bronzing, they’re probably the first I’ll think about when I want to buy somebody a gift. That’s because these kits make amazing gifts. I mean who wouldn’t want one of these?

Today I’ll be talking about their new boxes of love – the Benefit World Famous Neutrals Eyeshadow Kits! They are a mouthful to say and remember but just like the other kits they’re offering, they are super easy to follow and provide you with just what you need. There are three varieties – the Most Glamorous Nudes Ever, Easiest Nudes Ever and Sexiest Nudes Ever – courtesy of Eyenessa who’s on the front cover. Stay tuned to find out how you can win one of these!

Benefit Fake Up1

I was recently invited to the launch of Benefit’s brand new concealer, Fake-Up! Benefit is the Queen when it comes to faking it. Whether it be eyelashes, radiance or even a flawless complexion. Now, they’ve found a product finally worthy of the name and that’s this concealer. P.S I had an amazing time at the launch, loved the skit they did below!

The new concealer comes in extra chic packaging and an absolutely beautiful tube and the stick form makes it easy for girls on the go. What makes this concealer different from the rest? It’s wrapped with a “hydrating core”. Basically your pigment comes from the core of the product and a moisturising balm wraps around the pigment. So, when you glide, you get a mix of moisturisation and the concealer.

Hey Everyone!

Having a schmexy dark lipstick in your collection can really amp things up, or shall I say “vamp” things up. Although I do need to work on the puns,  I do like Benefit products and one product I absolutely love are their lipsticks. Smooth, silky and very pigemented, these lipsticks for sure pack a punch when it comes to putting on a bold lip. Let’s take a closer look at their Silky Finish Lipsticks!

Packaging:

Benefit Silky Finish Lipsticks come in a sleek black metal tube. It’s like lipstick in a can. Lightweight, simple, there’s not much else to say about the packaging except to stare blankly at its no friills design. The lipstick is also tubular shaped meaning it doesn’t have that pointed slanted tip that most lipsticks are known for. Sometimes it gets tough around your cupids bow but other than that, there’s not much to yay or nay at these tubes of awesomeness.

Hey Everyone, Location: Tangs Orchard, Benefit Brow Bar I am so angry that I forgot my memory card when I went to Benefit yesterday but I shall tell you all about my experiences. So, I went with my friend Daphne and when we arrived, we were greeted by smiling sales assistants which I love and I just simply requested for brow arching, which cost me $22 and I saw it as an investment for the arch – didn’t want anyone to mess it up you know. They quickly jotted me down for an appointment and because they were slightly booked, I had to wait for another half hour before they could seat me down which was no problem at all because MAC was on the opposite side :) Then after seating me down, they took a eye brow liner brush and marked the places where my brow should start, where the arch should be, and where it should end, shaded the places where they wanted to keep with browzing power and used high brow i think to mrk the places that should be plucked out..she then asked me if the shape was okay. Waxing was more or less painful, but probably will be painful to begginers. After the waxing session, she treated my skin with aloe vera and plucked out a few stray hairs. I give it a 5/5 – happy sales assistants, and a wonderful job and experience.
