Benefit | Customized Makeup Kit!

I wanted a lot of Benefit makeup for my birthday as it's my current favourite makeup brand. I was so suprised when I found out I could customise my own Benefit makeup kit online for £66! The products I chose were The Porefessional primer, Rockateur blusher, Fake up concealer and a creaseless cream eyeshadow. I also love the super cute Benefit makeup bag that you get free with the kit!

Complexion
The Porefessional primer has been on my wish list for a long time. Many bloggers have raved about this primer and I just couldn't wait to try it out for myself. Porefessional claims to minimize the appearance of  pores and I can definitely notice a difference! This is also amazing for oily skin as it keeps oil at bay for longer than my usual primers. My skin also feels super soft and smooth. Overall, at a pricey £24.50, this a great primer and I can see this staying in my beauty bag for a long time!

Cheeks
Rockateur is a rose gold blusher that is like nothing I've ever owned before. This is probably one of the most expensive blushers I've ever bought at £23.50. I don't really know why it cost that much as it's staying power is no different to Bourjois blushers. I find the brush that comes with the blusher useless but thankfully the blusher blends really well! It isn't as pigmented as other blushes but the colour is stunning with just the right amount of shimmer. I would buy this again but the price does put me off a lot!

Eyes
 I've never heard of Benefit's Fake Up until I saw it on the website. Fake Up is a hydrating crease control concealer for underneath the eyes. I got the lightest shade and it suits my skin perfectly! The concealer claims to hide lines and I did notice a difference! My dark circles also look 1000 times better too. Fake up also blends like a dream. I would definitely buy this again as at £18.50, this is one of the less expensive Benefit products but I also think it's one of their best!

Free Gift
 I was so excited that Benefit also included a free gift in the kit! I decided to choose a cream eyeshadow as I loved the ones in the easiest nudes ever kit and I just had to add another to my collection! This shadow is called Holy Smokes which a smouldering charcoal. I love using this as it blends amazing and is really pigmented. It also doesn't crease and it stays on for hours.

Overall, I love my costomized Benefit kit! All of the products come in a super cute Benefit makeup bag. I love the packaging of the products and they look perfect in my makeup stash! My favourite product is probably the porefessional primer as it definitely met my high expectations! At £66, I hope you all treat yourself to a custimized kit!

What is your favourite Benefit makeup product?

  1. I don't buy Benefit as they are more often than not too out of my price range. However I love this idea as a gifting idea, obvs I don't think I could spend £66 on four products for myself, but if it was for a gift for myself or someone else then it seems more justifiable, haha. What mascara are you wearing by the way? Your lashes look amazing!

  2. I remember when i discovered this deal and i was so excited as it was one of my first high end buys, i got the porefessional, watts up highlighter and they're real, i just regret getting the black cream shadow and wish i opted for a lighter tone although it makes a great base for a intense eye!!

  5. I love all of what I've tried from Benefit. I have a lot of their products myself as you've probably seen haha! I've spent a lot but the quality has been more than worth it! I'll probably end up doing one of the kits soon as my birthdays coming up too in just under 2 months :)

  29. This is an interesting concept, make your own kit. I'm not a huge Benefit fan, but I hope other brands pick up this idea - I would love to make my own kit for maybe Makeup Forever, or NARS, or Smashbox. I think it's an innovative idea.

  56. Wow, the Benefit Fake Up doesn't seem like it creases at all! The reason I usually steer away from under eye concealers is because It's difficult to find one that doesn't crease, but this looks perfect. I think my favorite Benefit product is the Porefessional, and my least favorite Benefit product is the They're Real mascara since it smudges so badly on me.

  57. What an awesome idea! And it would be such an awesome present (better be for someone special at that price haha). The Fake Up concealer looks gorge too!
