My Top Benefit Picks!

As I work for the company, I'm very lucky and get to try soo many of the brand's amazing products. So I thought I would do a post on my favourites of the bunch, items that I genuinely lovely and use on a very regular basis.

First up, Noelle. This fragrance was launched just recently at Benefit and it smells DIVINE! Most of their fragrances (as you can imagine) are quite girly, floral and sweet. Noelle on the other hand is the most different in that it has notes of black amber, accord oud and vanilla bean. I would say it is the most 'grown up' of all the Benefit fragrances and is definitely perfect for winter.
 The packaging is adorable as well! I'm desperate to get my hands on the Crescent Row Christmas set, purely for the miniature size of this - it would be the best addition to my handbag right now!
 Second, we have the play stick. I am such a fan of stick foundations but there are so few! Having never really tried a Benefit foundation before I worked for the brand I was genuinely surprised at how much I loved the play stick. I have it in the shade 'jump rope'.  The coverage is buildable and the product lasts so so well throughout the day, minimal maintenance needed. 
 Now we move on to a product that is quite simply iconic. The UK's number 1 prestige mascara - they're real! Not much to say about it after that, it really does deserve its position at the top; it lengthens, volumises and wows. Normally I'm not a fan of a plastic mascara wand, but when it gives you such good results I can't complain!
 On to another UK number 1, POREfessional. This is the UK's number 1 prestige primer. I have found many products that once applied give your skin that exceptionally smooth feeling, however, POREfessional is the first that actually makes a difference to the way my makeup wears throughout the day. I see visible results, my make up needs less 'touching up' throughout the day and my skin is far less shiny than gets when I am not using the product. I really didn't think I would like the POREfessional as much as I do, I've never found a primer that delivers results good enough to warrant me raving about it - until now!
 And lastly (but not least!), is the creaseless cream shadows. The colour in the picture below is 'my two cents', which along with 'birthday suit' are my favourite shades. The creaseless creams are long wearing and can also be used as a great base underneath powder shadows. The packaging of these is also really cute! The lid is on the bottom so that the product looks pristine on the front right up until you hit the bottom of the pot. I love trying to keep products looking their best for as long as possible - makes them so much nicer to have in my make up bag that I take out and about with me!
So there you have it! Honestly, I am a big fan of all of the Benefit products I have tried, these few have just really stood out from the crowd for me.
