#BeautyCrush: Flashback – the Benefit GlamBox

I know, I know I am super late reviewing my last few GlamBoxes BUT I was away in August and had to put my subscription on hold (super convenient!) so I then got my July and August boxes at the same time in September!

And to make matters even more confusing, I decided to start up with the August box, the Benefit Box! Just because I love Benefit Cosmetics and was super excited to try out some of their stuff.

So here is my low down on this box’s glam treasures!

Total Moisture Face Cream – I never really thought of Benefit as a ‘skincare brand’ and although I do know they offer a range of products including cleansers, toners & moisturisers, I had never tried them. Well you know what, I think I will now! I actually really liked this moisturising cream! It felt a little ‘heavy’ at first BUT it sank right into my skin and left it hydrated yet matte and looking great! I’ve kept the cute little pot for when I travel but I will definitely be checking out their other skincare stuff!

The POREfessional – When I first tried out this mattifying primer, I blogged about it and called that particular post ‘Where have you been all my life‘! I think that says it all! Check it out here.

Hello Flawless – Oxygen Wow Foundation – I don’t know what it is but foundations and I don’t ever agree! I have tried MANY different ones and always end up not liking the texture or the colour etc… so I had high hopes with Benefit’s newest foundation and well…. I didn’t like it :(. I found the texture too ‘thick’, it didn’t give me an even coverage and the colour (Champagne) had a slight yellow undertone which doesn’t suit my complexion at all.

ChaCha Tint – Now this is one which has been in my make-up bag for quite a while now and I absolutely love it! You can read my full review here.

They’re Real Mascara – My biggest #MakeUpCrush this year! What an amazing mascara! I mean, again, you read things, you hear things but my God this one didn’t disappoint!! I just love how it makes your lashes so much longer and voluminous, the brush is super practical and the colour very well pigmented! It doesn’t rival with my Sephora Outrageous Volume Mascara for ‘drama’ but this is a very very good day-time option which I shall re-purchase when I’ve used up this little sample tube!

I have started to try out the Philosophy goodies from my July GlamBox and will be sure to post a complete review very soon!

Until then….
