Mini Benefit Haul

I don't know about you, but every time I pop into Boots I end up spending wayyyy more than I ever need to. So when I stopped by my local store after work on Monday I was only expecting get a few essential things.

30 minutes later and £60 down I walked out with three new Benefit products.
I'd seen them around Instagram and Youtube and I clearly have no self control. When I want something, I eventually end up buying it. Need to work on that! haha.

I bought the new Dew The Hoola Liquid Bronzer, Dandelion Shy Beam Liquid Highlighter and the Hoola Bronzing and Contouring Brush.

I love the look of this product, like a stick of bamboo. The liquid itself is something to get used to. I do love a powder bronzer, but once I get the hang of it and get the application 100% perfect it could be really pretty. It's a more natural bronze than a powder and it's very buildable.

Love this green! Again it looks like a stick of bamboo so it fits in perfectly with the whole hoola theme. It works pretty well with the bronzer, but I may end up trying the bronzer with my fingers to see the if that makes a difference. Either way it's a soft and durable brush that I will definitely use again.

It looks like there are scratches on the bottle but it's actually pretty white dandelions! I ADORE rose gold at the moment, so this bottle is right up my street. I must admit i've never really used a highlighter before. Shock horror. I've only used the product a couple of times, and I think i've been pretty sparse with it so I think I need to build it up more to get that highlight effect. I guess I don't want to end up with a shiny face! How do you strike a balance between highlight and shine!?!?! Need to work on that too!

I am a Benefit lover and have never been disappointed with any of their products. I'm excited to use these products more confidently and incorporate them into my daily routine.  

What's your favourite Benefit product?! Have you bought any of their new Hoola range? What's you favourite??
