Happy Friday beauties! Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am! 🙂
This week started in the best way ever! I was very kindly invited to a top secret Benefit event in London for the launch of some exiting new products. I had breakfast with the Benebabes and lots of beauty bloggers at the lovely Terry’s Cafe which had transformed into the Rise & Prime Greasy-Less Spoon for the day in a celebration of the launch of two fabulous new products the POREfessional Matte Rescue* and Instant Wipeout Masks*
There were so many delicious treats to choose from the menu, I went for the blueberry pancakes and coffee, which were absolutely amazing! I met the lovely Becky from Lipgloss and Lashes and we ended up sitting together to enjoy our delicious breakfast and try the products for the first time. We also had some yummy cupcakes and smoothies while networking with the other bloggers and talking all things beauty. On our way out we were very kindly given some samples of the new products, including the Hello Flawless foundation to finish off our Rise & Prime morning routine at home 🙂
I couldn’t wait to try everything as soon as I got back, I took all my makeup off and put on one of the new POREfessional super cleaning masks. It’s basically a little sheet mask which goes over your nose and cheeks, you can also put it on your forehead, chin or any congested area where you have some visible pores or black heads. You have to press the little button to release the treatment and then apply it on the desired area. I left mine on for a good few minutes and then used the other side of it to gently exfoliate my face. My skin was left very clean and smooth 🙂 Such a unique little invention from Benefit (RRP24.50)
Next I applied the POREfessional Matte Rescue primer, which is a light weight, water-based gel, supposed to help with keeping you matte and giving the perfect base for foundation. I noticed it went on really smoothly and filled my enlarged pores very nicely, quite similar to the original POREfessional, which I love. It felt lovely on the skin, quite hydrating in a way so you can use it instead of a moisturiser. (RRP £21.50)
Then I followed up with the Hello Flawless foundation, applying a very thin layer and blending it in with my beauty blender. It gave me a medium coverage and such a lovely smooth look to my skin, I would say the primer and this foundation work really well together. A few hours later I noticed that my T-Zone was still pretty matte and my skin looked flawless, so thumbs up for that 🙂
So I hope you guys enjoyed my review and found it helpful if you decide to try the new products yourself. My weekly blog will go up on Sunday on my YouTube channel so if you want to see some footage from the event make sure you tune in.
Thanks so much to Benefit for a fabulous day!
The new products will be launching on the 30th of January in all Benefit stores, online and also in Debenhams, not long to wait now!
Have a wonderful day guys xo
