I’m no beauty blogger by any stretch of the imagination, but I treated myself to Benefit’s new ‘Gals Just Wanna Have Fun’ Makeup kit and thought some of you might like to see exactly what’s in it, so here goes..
First up: They’re Real! Mascara. Promises maximum volume, length and fit. I’ve never used this before and I’m in need of a new mascara.
Next, my all, my everything: Gimme Brow. Being one of those people who plucked my eyebrows to nothing back in the good ‘ole days, this brings brows to my baldy face. I adore this stuff. The only thing is I normally use Shade 1 and this is Shade 3. It doesn’t look too much darker but we’ll see. I wonder if you can choose the shade if you ask when you’re buying the box?
Next: Benetint Rose-tinted Lip & Cheek Stain. I’m intrigued by this and can’t wait to try it out!
Next: Hoola Bronzing Powder. I’m assuming it does what it says on the tin..
Small brush for the Bronzing Powder.
Next: Eyeshadows in 3 beautiful shades of brown & brushes. The shades are named ‘gilt-y pleasure’, ‘kiss me, i’m tipsy’ and ‘nude swings’. I love browns and they look fab.
And lastly: A ‘Tips and Tricks Instant Beauty’ Leaflet with tips on how to use everything in the kit.
I bought it in Boots, Blanchardstown SC for €39.50. Considering the Gimme Brow I buy is €26 I thought this was good value. I’m heading to the Boots Maternity & Infant Awards on Friday so I’ll use it for that. Can’t wait to try it out properly.
