My 'No Make Up' Make Up FOTD

Afternoon kids :)

Did that title make sense? I can't decide.

Last week I received Benefit's Confessions of a Concealaholic for my birthday. I was eager to try it as it had a number of products in that I wanted to try without buying the full sized versions in case I didn't like them etc.

On a side note, do Benefit give samples out? Every time I've been to Benefit counters, they've always said they don't, but I've seen some people manage to get them. How does that work? FYI Benefit Babes, I'm more likely to go back and buy the full size if you give me a sample and I like it. So go figure.

Anyway, I tried out everything in the set and was amazed at what a difference these products make!

Products used

♥ Benefit That Gal Primer

♥ Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Foundation in Light Beige (This was the lightest shade on the shelf - no idea if they go any lighter - and it matches my skin perfectly! And it's more purse friendly. Win!)

♥ Benefit Erase Paste - under my eyes

♥ Benefit Boi-ing #01 - under my eyes and on blemishes

♥ Benefit Eye Bright - inside corner of the eye and on the waterline

♥ Eyeko Toffee Fat Balm on lips and cheeks - I am in LOVE with this, you girls need it in your life! Whisper loves the smell of it and wouldn't stop sniffing my face which was quite hilarious!

♥ e.l.f. Studio Brow Kit in Dark

♥ Benefit Lemon Aid Eye Primer - on the eye lids

♥ MAC Brûlé  - all over my eye

♥ Eyeko Magic Mascara

Et voila!


There will be a review of Confessions of a Concealaholic coming soon :)

I can see this turning into an expensive Benefit habit. Uh oh!

  1. Ooh this looks great. I used to use Benefit ALL the time and am now getting back in to it.

    I've never managed to get samples :(

  2. I'm just getting in to Benefit. Methinks I'm hooked. Goodbye remaining bank balance! It's so annoying that they don't give them out if you ask for them. Makes me less likely to go back to them tbh xx

  3. my friend works at Benefit and they always give out free samples but only if you buy something or have a make over.. but she just gives them to me anyway!!.. the perks of having a friend at benefit!!..xx

  4. Oh I see. Saying that though, I went with my friend whilst she had a makeover and they refused to give her any samples. Oo lucky you :D xx

  5. this really does look gorgeous :)

  6. Benefit used to be my downfall - I need to buy new boing does last forever though :)

  7. You're only allowed to give samples of certain products (usually 'Fix Its' - ie the skincare range) and that's only when the customer buys. You give them a sample and book them in for a 'Beauty Lesson' and then when they come back you try and sell them the product they sampled. (Used to be a 'Benebabe').

    Loving the (no)makeup! Looks gorgeous. Really flawless. You have lovely skin!

  8. Dyna - Thank you :) xx

    Amey Jane - Oo that's good to hear :) xx

    Konni - Oh I see. Thanks for the heads up :) Thank you! xx
