The other day my mum took me to my nearest cara pharmacy store and she looks at me and goes " Laura they have a benefit pop up shop on in here today " I looked at her " wait what .. How did I not know this , it's a bad idea for me to come in here " knowing the fact that I would splurge on their products epesically the ones I've been eyeing up , the make up artists and sales assistants came up to me and asked me did I need any help they laughed once I turned around they seen the Items that I was holding in my arms , I even had a lovely chat with one of the make up artists discussing our love for benefits push up liners ! The excitement on my face when trying out their new push up linners in purple and green ! Seriously bees they really are a beauty must havel !!
What I bought ?
Hmmm what did I buy let's see
- Benefits pore fessional
- They're real push up liner in Beyond purple

Benefits Pore Fessional
This product minimises the look of pores and fine lines , it really does work wonders it's extremely light on your skin and smooths out your skin which helps make up stay in place and last 10 times longer .If you have any promblem areas blend it gentle over the areas which helps even out your skin tone and smooths out your complexion when you apply the light weight balm to your face make sure you gently pat and blend with your finger tips this product is oil free and leaves your skin feelng silky ! When I tried this product I found that my foundation applied more smoothly and evenly on my face my skin looked healthy and smooth . This balm costs €34.00 in cara pharmacy there was also a 10% discount on the day of the pop up shop ! My mum kind of forced me into buying this product she handed me the box and was like buy this Laura it's meant to be good little did she know I have been eyeing it up for sometime now , it really is worth the buy and I was really happy with the results !!
They're Real Push Up Liner
I love , love benefits push up liners they have brought out a new range of colours which were due to come out on Saturday but benefit allowed it to be sold a day early in the pop up shop and that means I was one of the first people to try out the liner in the shade Beyond purple the colour emmedialty caught my eye the custom soft angled tip get the linner close to your lashes it's extremely long lasting and it doesn't smudge when I applied it I used a angled brush to blend it out and smooth it out just to complete my look , this liner is also waterproof so incase you shed a few tears it doesn't run !! Due to it's the custom accuflex tip it allows you to draw an even line and it makes achieving the cat eye so much simpler , I love how the fact that you can mess around with the liner you can blend it out for a more smoother looking appearance . This product was available at the pop up shop for €25 at cara pharmacy . It's one of my favourites from benefit and if you don't have it your are missing out ! I've been nagging my friends telling them to buy it because I'm obbsessed !!
Do the hoola bronze kit
This past while I've been keeping an eye out for a bronzing kit , I was at the pop up shop when this kit caught the corner of my eye , I love benefits make up kits it's like mini little samples of their products ! This kit contained lip gloss , tinted lip balm , hoola powder , they're real mascara ,Iiquid bronzer . I used this little kit the other night when I was going to work I loved how it gave my face a nice natural looking glow the bronzer isn't dark I always have the difficulty of finding a bronzer that was natural looking and suited my pale irish skin tone , I love how soft the the lip balm left my lips it made the application of my favourite lipstick easier and last longer , the mascara which I'm madly in love with catches each single lash and enhances the length of lashes once you use the mascara there is no need for false lashes ,inside the kit it contains a little step by step guide and the kit also has a little mirror which is extremely handy ! This kit was also coming out this Saturday and wasn't suppose to be available in stores but benfit allowed cara pharmacy to sell it at the pop up shop ! I'm really glad they did because I really do love this set ! It really is prefect if you are looking for seamless natural glow . On the day of the pop up shop it was available for €38.50 at cara pharmacy . It's really is worth it .
The other day I was removing my makeup and I thought "hey why not do a little piece on my blog about garnier's michellar cleansing water ? " I am a huge fan of this product it really is beauty must have ! I make my mum use it , my sister use and all my friends !! as you can tell I'm slightly obsessed .
This week I have been trying Garnier's summer body sun kissed moisturising lotion deep ! I thought I would give a little review , This product is a 2 in 1 it's a gradual tan and moisturiser which gives you a Sun-kissed glow day after day !!
The moisturising lotion is extremely light it lasts an impressive 12 hours !! Which is good to know. It revitalizes your skin ! It gradually builds a natural looking tan which harmonizes with your skin tone ! This product is prefect if you are looking for a natural summer glow !! I'm not a fan of fake tan and me being Irish I'm extremely pale If the sun comes out I burn so easily !
My skin felt extremely soft and moisturised after I applied it , the scent is so yummy it's a hint of apricot the scent lingers for a while after use it ! If you want a more of a darker and bronzed look I recommend that you apply it 2 or 3 times during the week I applied it twice on my legs as it didn't really didn't apply as well to my legs as it did to the rest of my body ! But after the first day the colour change extremely noticeable it came out a nice light colour !
I was extremely happy with the product and how it came out !! I will defiantly use it a lot more ! I like how you can select the amount of colour you can choose based on the amount that you apply to your skin ! I loved the scent fruity ! It's not an expensive product too ! It left my skin super soft ! It really did leave me with a summer glow ! my skin was left really healthy looking , It really is worth the try !! So pick it up in the shops the next time you see it !
Hey bees !!
