Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner

benefit eyeliner

I didn’t get this when it was first released because I heard completely mixed reviews about it, but I eventually picked it up from Birchbox with my points so it didn’t cost me a penny!

THIS IS THE BEST EYELINER I HAVE TRIED. The angled rubber tip makes application so easy, even for someone like me who is atrocious at applying eyeliner. Once applied, the eyeliner lasts all day without smudging or crumbling. It lasts so well that I have to use two different cleansers to remove it!

This is a product that everyone has to try! Easy to apply, long-lasting, exactly what it says on the tin!

Favourite concealers

favourite concealers 2014

SOAP AND GLORY KICK ASS CONCEALER | I have this in the shade ‘light’. This is a duo concealer that also comes with a finishing powder so is an all in one product. The one concealer is yellow toned for concealing blemishes and the other one is peach toned for concealing dark circles under the eyes. This product has a lovely creamy texture and is fantastic for a holiday as you only need to take the one product. This is a bargain at £10 considering that it is very similar to the bobby brown concealer duos!

COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER | I have this in shades 1 and 2 which I mix to get my perfect shade. This is a cult beauty product that has become a staple for concealing blemishes. In a review last year I said that I was not a fan of this product because it made my eyes very sensitive when used under the eyes, however as a blemish concealer it is fantastic. It has no shimmer or highlighter in it at all so is ideal for breakouts. They also have a good selection of colours with shade 1 being the palest concealer I have ever discovered.

BENEFIT ERASE PASTE | I have this in shade 1 ‘fair’. This is a very strange almost gel like texture. I apply it using my finger and it blends beautifully. It has a peach tone so I only use it under my eyes and not on blemishes. It gives a lovely natural look but my only criticism of this product is that it smells kind of like playdoh!

RIMMEL WAKE ME UP CONCEALER | I have no idea what shade I have as all the writing has work off but I would guess that it is the palest shade. This has almost ran out and I will definitely be repurchasing it straight away. It is my all time favourite under eye concealer. It gives a very natural look whilst still covering dark circles. It also has a slight shimmer to it that really brightens your under eyes! Also at around the £7 mark it is well worth trying!

LIZ EARLE CLEANSE & POLISH HOT CLOTH CLEANSER | Full size £13.25 100ml | Sample 30 ml £3.97 | I have used this product before so I know that it is brilliant and I was very pleased to see that they had included the muslin cloth

SOIGNE BOTANIQUE NAIL POLISH IN CREME AU BEURRE | Full size £11 10ml | It was nice to receive a full size nail polish and the colour looks lovely. I have never heard of this brand before so will keep you posted

BENEFIT THEY’RE REAL MASCARA | Full size £19.50 8.5g | Sample 3g £6.88 | This is a fantastic mascara that I have had before so I am glad to have this sample to use it again

BEAUTY PROTECTOR PROTECT SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER | Full size £14 (Doesn’t say size) | This is a birchbox exclusive brand that is all sorts of nasties-free so I am interested to try this out, however it would have been nice to have a more well-known brand

AROMATHERAPY ASSOCIATES REVIVE MORNING BATH & SHOWER OIL | Full size £40 55ml | Sample 3ml £2.18 | I am really glad to have received this product as I have heard amazing things about their bath oils so am excited to try this out

Overall I am pleased with this months box. It is nice to see come popular brands in there. However, some of the sample sizes are a little bit small such as the bath oil. I like to try products out more than once before deciding what I think of them and the small samples don’t allow for that. That being said, I still look forward to receiving my birchbox every single month
