Recent Bene-purchases!

Through Boots offers and ASOS sales I've found some really wonderful excuses for my recent purchases from the one and only Benefit!
First is the under-eye concealer, Fake Up, with a ring of hydration around it, in the shade '02- Medium'. It has really lovely, sleek packaging and works well to conceal dark under-eye circles, with the use of primer before and set with a powder afterwards. 

I then re-bought my favourite powder, Hello Flawless, which offers a truly flawless finish with some coverage too. I'm in the shade 'Honey' and it fits me really well. The powder comes with a sponge and a brush, perfect for both covering blemishes or just being brushed to complete a makeup look. 

Boots were running an offer which meant that if I bought another Benefit products I would receive an additional 750 Advantage Card points (which can be used towards £7.50 worth of purchases). I was wondering around the Benefit counter when the lovely MUA tried this mascara on me. 

Now, let me tell you, I've heard a lot about this but haven't really given it much of a thought, but when she used this on me, my sisters eye widened. I looked in the mirror and was in shock, it had truly made a difference on my eyelashes, making them look longer and fuller. With the purchase of any They're Real mascara, they were giving away a travel size, too! I had heard about trouble with application so I made sure to ask her for tips on how to use it (wiggle the wand both vertically and horizontally) and left, very happily!
