Benefit cosmetics and I have a funny relationship. They make products I really love and products I intensely dislike, rarely does anything fall in the middle ground.

I recently won these items and just wanted to share them with you as I really love them! Neither of these I would ever have chosen for myself but I’ve not stopped wearing since I got them. Perhaps I should start to be more open minded!

Anyway, the Patootie Ultrashines lipgloss.

You can’t really tell but it looks so frosty I thought there was no way I was ever going to be able to wear this… love the packaging though. However, I really like it on my lips, it’s nice and sheer and comfortable feeling, it’s thick and gloopy but doesn’t feel grim on my lips, and I’m really fussy about lipgloss.

Then the Sugarbomb Face Powder.

 I’d never have picked this up. The colours don’t really call my name, and it just doesn’t look special enough to me. But I love it, it’s absolutely gorgeous on! Really natural and pretty. I’ve worn it every day since I got it virtually!

 And you can see in that second photo a little glimpse of Patootie.
Here’s a full face using both of the products.

 So there we have it. I recommend both products highly for a natural look.

    Sugarbomb is really pretty, much more subtle than you would expect seeing it in the box, it looks lovely on you. x
