Makeup lesson and makeover from Benefit

Aside from the incredibly fun packaging, Benefit Cosmetics really are as good as they proclaim to be. They’re real! Mascara is the UK’s No.1 best-selling mascara. In fact most of their products are best sellers including the POREfessional primer, Rockateur (the famously provocative blush) and Benetint (the rose-tinted lip & cheek stain).

I decided to try out these products for myself and so booked a makeover session at their Debenhams concession in London to see what all the fuss is about.


After a quick consultation on what look I wanted to achieve, the Benefit makeup artist picked the relevant products and began to demonstrate how to apply the makeup to just one side of my face. I was then required to duplicate the application on the other half. This way I was learning to use the makeup immediately with guided help from the makeup artist. It definitely proved to be a effective approach to learning how to use their products.


Benefit offer a range of beauty kits that have up to 6 products in each. It’s great for those who want to test the makeup out before buying bigger quantities. It’s also ideal for travelling or just keeping in your handbag for top ups.

Primping with the stars, an all-time greatest “fake-its” kit includes they’re real! beyond mascara, stay don’t stray light/medium stay-put primer for concealers & eyeshadows, benetint rose-tinted lip & cheek stain, some kind-a gorgeous medium the foundation fake for medium complexions, girl meets pearl liquid pearl for face and the POREfessional PRO balm to minimise the appearance of pores.

Feelin’ dandy, a perk me up…lip & cheek kit consists of posietint poppy-pink tinted lip & cheek stain, high beam luminescent complexion enhancer, dandelion brightening face powder and ultra plush dandelion lip gloss.

You can even build your own custom beauty kit online.

Their range of fragrances are also worth checking out and are great gift options.


Overall it was a great experience and Benefit really proved its reputation as a best selling beauty brand. I will definitely be using more of their products in the near future.

Some of my favourites include:

Fine-one-one – sheer brightening colour for cheeks & lips
Big beautiful eyes – an eye contour kit
High beam – luminescent complexion enhancer
Hervana – a good karma face powder
