Benefits Tan about Town!


So as I was having one of my regular browses on asos (free shipping and 20% student!) I came across this exclusive to asos benefit set.

"Our mini kit for a 'quickie' natural-looking, nobody will know it came from a box." and it sure does exactly what it says on the box!

It includes:
  • Some kind-a gorgeous in medium 1.8g
  • Hoola bronzing powder 3g
  • Badgal lash mascara 4g

Soooo this mini set was £9 (£7.20 with my discount) I had never tried any of these products from benefit (yes it's pretty tragic) so I thought this was the perfect way to test them out!

This is a great mascara, gives you volume and a little extra length but it didn't blow me away. I was expecting it to be amazing due to how much people hype it up but everyones lashes are different I suppose. But my favourite mascara is still Lancome doll eyes. However, this little mini is going to be perfect for my handbag and when I want a bit of an extra lift. I really do like the style of the brush, it makes sure every lash is coated!

Hello hoola bronzer! I've never been a fan of bronzer and I think that's because I never found one perfect for me, I hate the shimmery bronzers, I hate the dark bronzers and I hate the 'let's wear bronzer instead of blusher look' However, I'm converted! I love this bronzer it's lovely and matte, it has a silky texture and looks so natural.(it's heavily swatched above). Will definatly be purchasing full-size.

Some kind-a gorgeous 'the foundation faker' I love this concept, a product which has coverage of a foundation without there being much product on your face. The smell is amazing, it smells of almonds and has a really smooth texture, it feels lovely on my skin. The only thing which lets this product down is the coverage. It looks lovely and natural and I love the natural skin look but not sure if I am brave neough to wear this out yet. I'd say it is light coverage but still pretty decent coverage.

Overall, I love this set. I think this is the perfect way of trying out products without forking out for full-size and then being dissapointed. If you fancy this set check it out on asos :)

So what sets have you been trying out which have suprised you? which benefit products are your favs?

  4. Totally agree about the concealers they really do cover everything! and I'm a sucker for cute packaging too :) xx

  5. This set sounds/looks great! I was really disappointed by "BadGal" mascara too.. it didn't seem to volumise or lengthen my eyelashes much! xxx

  6. I felt exactly the same, a very overhyped product xxx

  7. I like the sound of the light coverage from Some kind-a gorgeous - I hate it when it's obvious that you're wearing foundation, I think it looks hideous! x x

  8. I totally agree, thick foundation really isn't a good look! This has coverage siminlar a tinted moisturiser. Which is great for during the day :) xx
