Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Benefit is known for a few things. Benetint lip and cheek stain, Hoola bronzer and, of course, They’re Real! Mascara. In fact, it seems like every mascara Benefit puts out demands a cult following. I was therefore very eager to try out the brand’s latest beauty revelation: the new Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. It’s a mascara that claims to lift and curl lashes, eliminating the need for a lash curler.

My lashes aren’t very long and they aren’t very thick either, so I rely heavily on my lash curler to get me flirty, curled lashes. When applying RollerLash, you instantly feel the hooks. It’s hard to describe, but they really do catch every lash and I noticed a lift from my first application. The best thing is you only need just one coat as well to achieve a perfect look, not only curled lashes but thick as well.

Clinique 2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer

After a year or more of BB, CC,DD and even EE creams, it seems the beauty world has returned to good old foundations – and high coverage ones at that. The latest addition to the extensive Clinique foundation range is the new Clinique 2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer. It’s a liquid foundation and concealer and can be used as either. Applied all over the face like a foundation, or dotted on as a concealer. It’s a full coverage foundation, but the key is that it is very, very, light.

It has a breathable formula which adapts to the skin’s needs with dual-sphere particles that absorb excess oil or add hydration – whatever your skin needs. That means dry patches are treated to extra hydration and shiny areas get zapped with oil-absorbing particles. The polymers in the formula won’t dry out and help make-up glide on easily. This new foundation has a doe foot applicator – use it to apply dots all over the face, or turn it sideways to spread across the cheeks and larger areas on the face. Or, you can use the top of it to cover smaller imperfections on the face.

This foundation is full coverage and you will see that the minute it is applied. It is blend-able, but you do need to work it well and don’t apply too much. In order to get great coverage you don’t need a lot at all. If you love a ‘proper’ foundation, you should try this one out. I also used it over my lighter BB cream in part as a concealer on the dark ‘bags’ under my eyes and it blends in beautifully. The new Clinique 2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer is available to purchase online here.
