Happy Sunday beauties! Hope you’re having a fab weekend.
I’ve been looking forward to share with you some exiting new launches from Benefit Cosmetics coming out next month 🙂 They’ve just introduced the launch of two brand new collections, part of the ‘They’re Real!’ franchise, so today I’m going to tell you a little bit more about them.
They’re Real! Duo Eyeshadow Blender comes in a gunmetal grey tin inspired by one of their best sellers – They’re Real Mascara, I love the packaging! Each palette contains two eyeshadows and a little shadow blender sponge. It’s literally so easy to use all you have to do is slide the applicator onto the eyeshadow and then sweep across your eyelid, by making sure the lighter shade goes on the lower part of your lid along your lash line and the deeper shade in the crease of your eyelid. You can also reapply for even more dramatic look.
It really is super easy to use, the shadows are creamy and blendible and last really well without creasing. I know a lot of people struggle with doing a smokey eye so these palettes would be perfect if you are a beginner or just want a quick fix. I’m always rushing around these days and I never really get time to apply eyeshadow, these are so perfect to use on the go.
They’re Real! Duo Eyeshadow Blender comes in 8 neutral shades and they retail for £18.50 each.
Next we have They’re Real Big Double The Lip Lipstick and Liners which have been designed to be super easy to use. The lippies look like a mini version of They’re Real Mascara with a custom teardrop tip designed to work as a lip liner. To apply you have to position the pointed tip along your upper lip line and glide on, then turn it the other way for the bottom lip.
These are really nice and moisturising, they feel like a lip balm when you apply them but they’re quite pigmented which is great, I also love the packaging, it’s super sleek! There are 8 shades available and they retail for £15.50 each.
I’m so pleased that Benefit decided to expand the They’re Real! family and bring out two fab new collections and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so I can photograph and swatch them for you guys. I have the mini kits that came out at Christmas, which are basically the same products and I absolutely love them. I’m actually going to the launch event with a bunch of other bloggers in just over a weeks time, so make sure you follow me on Snapchat (Vickis_Beauty) or Insta stories (Vickisbeauty) for a sneak peek 🙂
This collection will be available from Benefit counters nationwide from February 2017.
