Four to Try // Benefit

It all started with the Roller Lash Mascara. 
Ok so I’d always known about Benefit, and I’d always loved anything that I’d tried from them, but only recently have I seriously sat up and taken notice of the brand as a serious player in my makeup drawer. If you follow me on Snapchat ( and if you don’t you should! I’m JosieLDN) you will have seen what great fun I had at the Benefit Brow March, and the little freebies that we received as a Thank You for participating, well that was just the start of my recent love affair with Benefit.
Yes, I fell in love with the very first time I tried it. No other mascara curls and separates my lashes quite like it, and never before have I received more lash-related compliments! I raved about it in both my April Favourites, and May Favourites videos so take a peek if you want to hear all my thoughts.
The was a product that completely took me by surprise. With it’s liquid to powder formula it somehow works its magic by creating a flawless matte finish, even though it applies like a cream. If your skin feels normal or even a tad dry when you apply your makeup in the morning, but it’s looking shiny or melting away by lunch time, then the Big Easy could be exactly what you need – it actually works to control oil and balance out the skin, it’s a one trick wonder for all my skincare needs. Love.
After finishing my base, I like to apply a pop of colour to my lips just to get rid of the nude tint created by my foundation, and I’ve recently been reaching for the to give a subtle tint to lips, as well as moisturising them ready for any lipstick that I apply later in the day. Also featured in my May Favourites  these little balms are just so handy for popping in your handbag, I’d say I reach for them on an hourly basis while at my desk!
My most recent discovery is the . I popped into the Benefit boutique on Carnaby street for a brow wax and shape in the hope that the Benebabes would be able to give me some lust-worthy arches, and not only did I leave with absolute brow perfection (thanks to the fabulous Amy!) but also armed with a Gimme Brow to try, and plenty of tips on how to get the most out of it. My brows are a little sparse but Amy showed me that I can back-comb my brows using the small brush from Gimme Brow, which plumps up the brows, adds more volume, and builds up each brow hair to create a much more full looking brow. My brows have never looked better! And for that, Benefit, I’ll forever be grateful.
