Guest Post | Benefit's How To Look The Best At Everything Kit

Today's guest post is from Fiona over at Wishes, Hopes & Dreams.

It’s been a long time since I wore make-up on a day to day basis so as a way to ease myself in gently decided to give the How To Look The Best At Everything kit from Benefit a try rather than buying full size products and not liking them. I had used boi-ing by Benefit before and it was the inclusion of this concealer which swung it from a maybe to a must buy box.

Box includes:

The POREfessional
I wasn’t too keen on this product if I’m honest and yes I know it will upset a few people. It felt quite grainy and I didn’t feel it did anything for my skin.

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation
This foundation took a little getting used to as for nights out I was using a mousse foundation so on first application of this I may have been a little heavy handed with it; however, I did end up with a good coverage overall and it wasn’t too yellow on my pale skin.

Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer 01 & 02
I have used this concealer before and I knew from experience that the lighter shade would be perfect for me now and the slightly darker shade would work well while I’m holiday and will have (hopefully) picked up a bit of colour. It applies really well especially under my eyes and covers those annoying spots on my chin too.

“I Love Me” Powder in Ivory plus Brush
Being brutally honest, I really don’t like this powder. It didn’t apply well and made me look very yellow which as I’m very pale made me look ill - I aim for a natural finish to my makeup when I wear it.

Overall the box was a good purchase as it confirmed that I will be buying a full size boi-ing when that one is finished and I’ll hang onto the foundation but other than that I’m not too impressed by the box. It was still better value than buying full size products though.
