BENEFIT CONFESSIONS OF A CONCEALAHOLIC REVIEW
So you would've thought that after boarding my flight home after 5 days in New York that I would be all shopped out, well for those of you who don't know me then you couldn't be more wrong. I get a massive thrill out of shopping at 37,000 feet, plus I had a few dollars left and there's no point bringing them back to the UK now is there ladies! So after having a good old browse through the Virgin Atlantic Duty Free Magazine I decided on a few products to purchase, one of them being the Confessions of a Concealaholic by Benefit. Now I love Benefit products but the only one I had tried in this collection before was Lemon Aid so I was very excited about the 5 other products in the kit that I hadn't tried.
So as you can see you get 6 products, 'That Gal' brightening face primer, 'Erase Paste' brightening camouflage, 'Boi-ing' industrial strength concealer, 'Lemon Aid' colour correcting eyelid primer and 'Eye Bright' instant eye brightener. You also get 2 double ended brushes, a little diary booklet with instructions on how to use each product and a cute little mirror for concealing on the go. All of these products are easy to use and more importantly they actually work. I am obsessed with concealing, I have dark circles and I have 'tea stained' eyelids, all of my concealing needs are taken care of with this little box of magic. This set is small enough to pop in your handbag and retouch as required, the 'Eye Bright' and the 'That Gal' are lifesavers if you need to refresh your look throughout the day.
I paid £24 Duty Free for this set, it retails at £28.50 at Benefit Counters. Now calm down ladies, I know that sounds like a fortune for a concealer, but this set is so much more than that. Think of all the money you waste on concealers that don't work!! Every single item in this kit delivers on it's promise. Trust me you will not be disappointed.
