My 2013 Benefit Cosmetics Favourites

Hey Lovelies,
Some of you might already know that I started working for Benefit Cosmetics this year. The job is so much fun, I get to meet lots of different people every day and do make up which is something I love! Since I started working for Benefit, I have discovered more and more of their amazing products, so I thought I'd do a little blog post for you all sharing with you my favourite Benefit products of 2013. These are products I wear every day and they aren't just loved by me but by our customers as well!
Benefit Porefessional is the best selling primer in the UK, and I have raved about it before on my blog so it's no surprise it's made it into my Benefit 2013 Favourites. Porefessional is a silicone based primer that smooths out your skin and leaves it feeling incredibly silky. You can wear it on its own or underneath your make up. If you are wearing it underneath your make up like I do, it will help keep your make up on for longer. Porefessional contains Vitamin E, so it's also good for your skin. I love it so much I've even bought my mum a tube of it for Christmas!  
Benefit Brow Zings is a product I loved even before I started working on a Benefit counter. Brow Zings consists of a water resistant wax that keeps eyebrow hairs in place, as well as a powder to colour them in. I mix a bit of the wax and the powder together on an angled brow brush so they form a paste, dab off the excess and fill in my brows. Once you have filled in your brows with Brow Zings, they will stay on the whole day. I even have Brow Zings on my brows when I go down the gym! I used to use pencil to fill in my eyebrows, but now that I've discovered Brow Zings, I don't think I will go back to brow pencils ever again!
Rockateur was released earlier this year and it's the perfect rose gold blush. I love how the colour is buildable. It has a gorgeous sheen to it that and suits just about every skin tone! Out of all of Benefit's Boxo Powders, Rockateur is probably my favourite. I apply it all over my face in a 3 motion and then build up the colour on the cheeks for a natural yet bronzed look.
Benetint is a lip and cheek stain. It's one of the first products Benefit ever bought out was originally used by an exotic dancer in a San Fransisco club as a nipple stain. When she noticed that all the other dancers in the club with more, erm, rosey nipples were making more money than her, she started applying Benetint to her nipples. Needless to say the men loved it and her takings went up! Personally I love Benetint because I have really pale lips, and as soon as my lipstick begins to fade I start resembling a ghost. I use Benetint underneath my lipstick or lipgloss. It stains the lips, so the colour lasts all day. Benetint also has a lovely rose scent, and even though the colour appears to be very deep and dark in the bottle, it looks a lot more natural when you apply it to your lips. You can also wear Benetint on the cheeks, but I prefer it on my lips as I like using powder products on my cheeks. My Benetint is only the small sample size, but as soon as it runs out I will be investing in a full size bottle!
So that's it for my Benefit 2013 favourites. Benefit are always releasing new products, so I am really excited what they have in store for us in 2014! I know Gimme Brow and Lollitint are due for release early in the year which I'm already so excited about. What are your favourite Benefit products?

  8. As you know, because I always tell you how jealous I am that you work there, Benefit Cosmetics is my favorite makeup brand. I actually own everything above except for the Benetint. The Porefessional is seriously one of my Holy Grails. I recently bought the Superprimer from Clinique and it can't even compare.

    Thanks for sharing!

  9. Great blog, I can't believe you're 30-something :O you look so young!

    I just recently added Porefessional and Rockateur to my collection. So happy you mentioned those, they're brilliant products.
