Sorry for the lack of posts everyone. The hours in the day seem to fly by in the last couple of days and I am exhausted. It probably isn’t helping with England’s semi heat wave. Anyways I hope you’re all good. I can’t believe its Friday already.
Rightyo, on to the blog post. This is about an unexpected haul...honestly. This is totally true, I didn’t go out with the intention of getting products, it just happened – hand on heart....please please believe me. (anyways technically I didn’t buy this haul, my hubby2b did) just don’t want yous thinking I’m obsessed with buying things.
Story goes like this ...on Saturday lunchtime I was hanging around in my local Boots waiting for my appointment with Boots opticians. I was cruising the makeup aisles with my hubby2b slowly walking behind bored out of his mind. Then suddenly this pretty young thing called Elisha pounced on me. My first thought was “are we in trouble for hanging around?? Uh oh what have we done”. Then I noticed what she was wearing.....black apron, baby pink top and a name tag with Benefit written on it. Ooooooo!!!
Elisha said that the Benefit counter in store was taking make over bookings and was I interested? I said yes and said that I was free now if she wanted to do a makeover. After getting the OK from my bored hubby2b, we headed on over and I took my seat.
I’ve never been a massive Benefit fan. I’m not saying I hate it, I do like certain products like Powder Flarge, Hoola, 10, Coralista, their lip sticks in good to go, jing a ling and make nice. I also used to love Her Glossiness VIP Lip Glosses before they were discontinued. *sad face* , I’d be more of a fan if their products cost less £££££’s!
Elisha asked me what I'd like to concentrate on and I said my complexion. She made up my whole face (except for eyes) and i have to say i was really pleased. Especially since one of the products was something I'd hated before. After wards she asked if there was anything I wanted to buy from what she used one me. And this is what I got...well my lovely hubby2b got me :- ) Yay.
Dr Feel Good, Ultra Shines Gloss, Sugarbomb & Some kind-a Gorgeous
Now the Foundation 'Some Kind-a Goregous' was the product I hated before. I'd previously tried it about 5 years ago, used it for a while then threw away as it had no staying power. But I have a renewed faith after Elisha said this product works better when a primer is used. She used Benefits 'That Gal' on me. But I didn't buy it as I have a primer from Primark for about £2.50 that looks exactly the same, so I thought I'd give that a whirl instead. This is one that suits all and it blends with your own colouring. There is another one for darker skin, but I think this fair one maybe too dark if you are extremely fair skinned. It comes in this cute compact with mirror and sponge. Very throw in your hand bag friendly. Bonus about this for me is it's oil free!! :-)
