BEAUTY FOCUS: The New Benefit Boutique in Dublin

Benefit 1

We were beyond excited when we learned that beauty giants Benefit were getting set to bring their own brand of kitsch glam to their very own store. However, the finished result, which only recently opened its doors, has exceeded even our wildest expectations. This is more than just a cosmetic store – this is a one stop shop full of fabulousness. The décor is pure girly with lots of pink yet … [Read more...]

BEAUTY FOCUS: Nude Make-Up – Product Reviews

Nude Makeup

Autumn leaves are falling once again which means it’s time to update your make up look. One very wearable trend that never really goes away is the nude look. Of course this doesn’t mean going bare faced (heaven forbid!), but rather it involves using neutral shades cleverly to create a barely there look that can easily be adapted to a night time look and which is suitable for pretty much every … [Read more...]

PRODUCT FOCUS: Benefit Rockateur – Review

Benefit Rockateur

Blush is one of those cosmetic products that many people struggle with. Too often I see stunning young women who have gone overboard on their cheek colour and resemble Aunt Sally from Worzel Gummidge rather than a sexy girl about town. Often this is down to the shade they have selected – if you pick a really dark pink and are heavy handed you are asking for trouble. For this reason alone the … [Read more...]

PRODUCT FOCUS: Benfit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer – Review

Benfit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer 2

Fifteen hour make-up is something we all dream of. While there are many long lasting foundation formulations on the market, and most work really well, by the end of the fifteen hours your skin can feel rather dry and most of the formulations are quite thick. This means a dewy look is nigh on impossible to achieve and it is often easier to just reapply all your make-up half way through a long day … [Read more...]

BEAUTY FOCUS: Benefit Limited Edition Matthew Williamson The Rich is Back Face Kit – Review

Benefit Matthew Williamson The Rich is Back thumb

If there’s one thing I love more than designer style it’s designer style at a pocket friendly price, which this set definitely is. As a big fan of Matthew Williamson’s clothing designs I was dying to see the results of his collaboration with Benefit and I wasn’t disappointed. Very much inspired by the ‘70s this has a real Studio 54 feel to it. It screams Williamson, featuring his … [Read more...]

PRODUCT FOCUS: Benefit World Famous Neutrals Eyeshadow Palettes – Review

Benefit World Famous Neutrals

Pretty much every woman I know has a neutral eyeshadow palette that is something of a go-to on an almost daily basis. However, they also usually end up throwing out a couple of colours as they are either unwearable or they favoured other colours in the palette and just never got around to using them up. This is quite wasteful and can work out rather expensive, so it's nice when a beauty brand … [Read more...]

PRODUCT FOCUS: BENEFIT FAKE UP – REVIEW

Benefit Fake Up 2

When it comes to under-eye concealers it has always been difficult to find a product that gives good coverage and yet doesn’t settle in the creases around the eyes - which gives an instant ageing effect. While illuminating products are very popular and don’t crease, people who suffer with very dark circles under their eyes often find that they don’t give enough coverage to mask these … [Read more...]

PRODUCT REVIEW: BENEFIT FINE ONE ONE

Benefit Fine One One 1

In the past I have admitted to not being a fan of multi-use products as they rarely do what they say on the tin. However, in recent years they have really come along and there are now many really marvellous multi-use cosmetics and products on the market. Benefit's Fine One One is one such product. A lip and cheek colour in one, this is split into three shades – a soft coral, sheer watermelon … [Read more...]
