THE 5 MINUTE FACE!

Before we begin, let me just add this is not a sponsored product review, but rather a woman who needs at least 4 more hours in every day sharing a new-found must-have time-saving beauty product with her sisters…

BENEFIT you have done it again. Your latest range of eye and lip products are PURE GENIUS. I was rushing around trying to grab some go-to goodies for my upcoming ski trip (there will be ZERO time to try and look good but the thought of being completely bare-faced scares me a tad) when I stumbled upon a lovely lady named Louise in Benefit, Boots Stockport branch. I told her my desire: make up that’s super easy to apply in the morning and will last all day – I left with this lot….

So home I trotted and tried it all on and guess what – it really does what it says it is going to do! Let me talk you through why and what they all are…

THE BIG SEXY EYE KIT

So, it’s basically two colours together, you swoop the sponge over your chosen duo and swoop again over your eye – lo and behold you have eye make up! A darker shade along the lid and a shimmery lighter shade above. It’s also crease free and long lasting, I can vouch for that! There are 3 different duos to keep you from getting bored and to shake up your look. I cannot recommend this enough, it took a minute tops!

PUFF OFF

Another GENIUS idea… this is an under eye brightener with a tip – IN THE SHAPE OF AN IRON – that instantly tightens, brightens, lightens those bags. I love the design of this – the thought of ironing out my under eye area really appeals to me ha! It’s also really easy to apply and feels cooling.

Now here is my favourite….THEY’RE REAL- DOUBLE THE LIP

Why am I so pleased with it? It is a lip liner and a lipstick all in one!!! The darker shade applies itself seemlessly around the lighter one and creates the perfect pout in seconds. I am so giddy about this!!!

Finish it all of with Benefit’s best-selling mascara THEY’RE REAL and hey presto you have a 5 minute face! Don’t get me wrong, I am no make-up expert and nor do I think I look red-carpet ready but if you are in a rush most days like me, then this is such a great find. I added a swoosh of Benefit FINE ONE ONE blush stick (which I already owned) for a little hint of colour on the cheek.

UPDATE: THIS MAKE-UP ROUTINE STAYED ON ALL DAY, EVERY DAY DURING MY SKI BREAK! I am suitably impressed ladies. A big thank you to Amanda on the John Lewis Cheadle Benefit counter too for talking me through the latest products – review to follow!!
