I’m always reluctant to splash out on expensive make-up. Some of the time the higher-priced cosmetics are the worst. I remember a YSL mascara I bought a couple of years back and within a month is was dried up and made my lashes super clumpy – bad investment. However, Benefit Cosmetics are usually fantastic! You can buy them in most department shops and in Boots, I even bought a little make-up compact on an aeroplane! Along with some Benefit cosmetics i’ve tried out along with some other good pricey cosmetics:
Benefit Tattletell All!:£29.50.
A fantastic travel-size touch-up kit! It contains minature touch-ups of benetint (a lip and cheek stain), high beam (a baby pink highlighter), lipgloss (in a lovely deep rose/beige colour), two lipsticks (in ‘no competition’ – a deep maroon colour and ‘lady’s choice’ – a nude rose colour) along with two small eyeshadows in ‘leggy’ and ‘brandy dandy’ – a nude pink shade and deep brown shade and finally a silky-smooth bronzer called ‘Dallas’. Overall, quite pricey but with what you get in such a small box – you can’t complain!
Benefit BADgal lash mascara: £16.50.
Again, quite pricey for a mascara, but my favourite lash extender by far! Long, and voluminous in one coat – it’s amazing!
YSL Touche Eclat: £25.00.
Expensive but so worth it! I know I said YSL’s mascara was awful but the highlighting/correcting pen it’s sooo different! It covers blemishes perfectly and highlights fabulously! Definitely worth the price-tag!
These cosmetics are avaiable in most large Boots stores so pop down there and have a browse!
