For me Benefit is a brand that delivers 99.9% of the time so it's been tough to choose my absolute favourite products, but I've managed to narrow it down to 5 essentials. I also just love their fun brand image and their kitschy, tongue-in-cheek packaging.
Including the Cheeky Sweet Spots Set (£29.99, sold out) is cheating a little so I've picked a favourite; Rockateur (£23.50). It was hard to choose between this shade and Coralista but I went for the rose gold colour. It has a small amount of shimmer and just gives a really nice pop of colour to the cheeks. I think it's pretty universally flattering as I've seen people of all skin tones and colourings rock it!
Ok, cheating properly now, as this is a set and the shades are sold individually, but I also love the World Famous Neutrals: Most Glamrous Nudes Ever Kit (£23.50). The pearlescent powder shades compliment each other so beautifully but for me the standouts are the cream shadows which are gorgeous shades and have such a great texture to them. When you throw it all together I just love the look it creates.
No Benefit post would be complete without mentioning the legendary They're Real Mascara (£19.50). It just does it for me! It adds the length, it adds the volume, it doesn't clump...it just does everything I want a mascara to do!
I was a little late to the party on this one but I've been converted to the Porefessional (£24.50)! Personally I just thought it was too expensive for such a small tube, however I got it 20% off and also if you're ever passing a Benefit store they sell a large that's £5 and you get nearly double the product! Otherwise, you really don't need to use a huge amount of it anyway so I can see this lasting. It does the best job out of any primer I've tried at hiding my large pores, making them virtually invisible. It also creates a nice, smooth base for applying foundation and makes your base last that bit longer!
Finally there's the Brow Zings Shaping Kit (£24.50). It's a fantastic product, though I do think you can get something virtually the same for less. However it's still a brand favourite for me. I use the wax to get the tail and structure right and then brush a bit of the powder through to fill in any gaps. It's really easy to create a nice, natural look with this kit.
Sorry these swatches aren't the best - I realised I needed to do some at about 4pm! I'll include better ones in future posts.
Pretty much the same as yours, I love the blush set and snapped that up, also love Porefessional and the They're Real so much.ReplyDelete
Great post :)
Pams Stuff and Things
The blusher set is such good value, especially considering how expensive they are individually xxDelete
I only have very few products from Benefit and I think I need to try more. The Benefit Porefessional Primer and Stay Don't Stray are my absolute favourites!! ...xxReplyDelete
Yeah same - I don't have tons and tons but the stuff I do have I totally love :) the Porefessional is an essential xxDelete
Fab post, I am obsessed with Benefit's cute packaging :) I really love their boxed blushers and very sadly have to admit to owning them all hehe! Kiss Me I'm Tipsy not only has an awesome name but I love the shade! :)ReplyDelete

Wow I can't believe you own the lot - lucky you! xxDelete
I do think some benefit items are a tad over priced at times, but regardless their blushes are my top favourites and have been for quite some time now I just love them. I also love They're Real Mascara and looking forward to trying their newest mascara release soon. I also need to try Porefessional and see what all the fuss is about xReplyDelete
Beauty with charm
Yeah I find they're expensive but I've only ever been a little disappointed once. Definitely looking forward to the Roller Lash Mascara :) xxDelete
I haven't tried lots of Benefit products but like the Porefessional but totally can't make the They're real mascara work for me. I really want to try their blushes, I'm regretting now not buying the Sweet Cheek set as it was a fantastic value for money! xReplyDelete

Aww that's a shame - mascaras are just so personal. And I'm sure they'll bring out some more fab value sets next year so maybe the blush palette will make a comeback! xxDelete
Benefit porefessional is one of my most loved primers :)ReplyDelete
I really want the birthday suit shade~ It looks so pretty ^^
Thank you for posting, Have a lovely day ♥

I'm so in love with Benefit! I love the eye products and the primer is just amazing too! Loved this post and all the products. xxxReplyDelete
Glad you liked it :D xxDelete
I love The Porefessional! And I really wish I'd picked up the Cheeky Sweet Spots, feel like I've missed out there as their blushers are usually fab!ReplyDelete

I think if you could only get one go for Rockateur! They might bring it back next Christmas :) xxDelete
I love benefit- cute items you have xReplyDelete
Thanks hun :) xxDelete
Neeeed more beautiful Benefit products! Ahhhh!ReplyDelete
It's definitely worth investing in a few of these as a lot of them are stuff I use most days :) xxDelete
Great picks! Benefit are hands down one of my favourite beauty brands. Although I'm actually not a big fan of the They're Real mascara, it just doesn't add the length for me. I prefer the Bad Gal lash by far! xReplyDelete
I love them too! I've never tried Bad Gal as I prefer the rubberised wand but I guess mascaras are really personal! xxDelete
I absolutely love porefessional, it makes my foundation last so much longer! I was never overly keen with They're Real as I just can't seem to get it off at the end of the day! I'm intrigued to try their pin up mascara xReplyDelete

It's my favourite primer :) a lot of people seem to struggle to take it off but personally I've never had that problem using the Bioderma! xxDelete
I can't live without my Benefit's They're real mascara, does amazing things for my crazy lashes.ReplyDelete
Haha me too! xxDelete
Porefessional is definitely my can't live without product now! it is such an amazing product. At first I didn't think I needed it, now I can't live without it! :)ReplyDelete
I'm exactly the same! haha xxDelete
Seriously, great job on narrowing it down to 5! I don't know if I could either haha. I've not tried their eyeshadows, so you've sold me on those! xxReplyDelete

You've got so many Benefit products, it makes me a little jealous! :P I love how innovative they are with their products and they always come up with something different! I love both Porefessional and They're Real Mascara, but I really want to try the rest too!ReplyDelete
Beauty from the Fjord
Yeah I definitely recommend their products - pretty much everything I have from them has been a hit! xxDelete
I haven't used much of Benefit, but I do love Porefessional and They're Real too, I cant wait for Roller Lash! Great choices, I should probably try out some more!ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to it too - love the packaging and the look of the wand :) xxDelete
I won the Cheeky Sweet Spot, and I'm so glad I did! I really love Rockateur blush and Watts Up Highlighter.ReplyDelete

Lucky you! It really is a great set xxDelete
ah yes the benefit blush palette. what an amazing buy that was, and i picked it up just b/c it was so economical.ReplyDelete
i'm glad i got to try their whole blush line but i actually did'nt fall in love with any of them lol. maybe i can try and sell it on my blog sale.
A Beautiful Zen
Aww what a shame! I liked Coralista and Rockateur best xxDelete
Im still a little indesisive about They're Real, I love it as a mascara, but not sure if I can repurchase it time after time especially since It does a similar job to my L'Oreal.ReplyDelete
My favourite benefit product hands down has to be the Porefessional, love it!!
-Rumbie Love - xx
Ooh which Loreal Mascara? I love the Porefessional too :) xxDelete
You know, I snapped up the Cheeky Sweet Spot before the Holidays and haven't even opened it yet...In all fairness, I thought I was going to gift it. Now it's sitting in my unopened pile. I already own the regular size of Rocketeur which is one of my all time favourites. I'm wearing it today, actually. And Porefessional is definitely a staple. :-)ReplyDelete
