Benefit’s makeup philosophy is incredibly fun, that’s why we always crave the newest drops from the brand. Thanks to their incredible formulas and fun design its hard not to fall in love with Benefit Makeup, these are our reviews of the best sellers.They’re Real! Double The Lip

They’re real! Double the lip

A lip liner and lipstick in one, They’re Real! Double the Lip comes in a variety of bright and neutral shades that are sure to have you fawning over them. The Custom Teardrop Tip grabs and defines your lip and the lipstick fills in lips with complementing colour for the appearance of volume and dimension. You’ll be surprised how much fuller lips look and the colour stays put for a long time too with a semi-matte finish that feels comfortable on lips.

They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara

They’re real! Lengthening mascara

They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara is a standout mascara from the brand, with plastic bristles to really help give lashes definition without clumping. The mascara lengthens lashes and increases thickness without clumps and stays put without flaking too. It beautifully defines eyes and doesn’t take much effort to remove all of the product at the end of day either.

Brow Zings Eyebrow Shaping Kit

The perfect little kit to keep your eyebrows looking perfect, the Brow Zing’s eyebrow shaping kit houses a powder and a wax product, as well as mini tools that include an applicator and slanted tweezers. This kit ensures your brows are perfectly groomed and sculpted at all times.

Brow Zings comes in six shades, so there’s something for every brow, and the powder is packed with pigment to help fill in brows, and the wax helps to keep them in place.

Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil

If you’re looking for something more streamlined when it comes to doing your eyebrows, the Benefit Goof Proof eyebrow pencil is just the thing. The easy filling and shaping pencil glides on to the skin, plus there's no need for a sharpener with this tool eaither. On the other end is a spoolie brush, for helping to tame and blend in the colour too.

Gimme Brow Volumising Eyebrow Gel

Gimme Brow Volumising eyebrow gel

Gimme Brow is a tinted eyebrow gel that contains tiny fibres. These fibres stick to the skin and hair to give the appearance of fuller-looking brows. Plus the brush is so small you get a really precise application.

Hoola Bronzing Powder

Hoola bronzing powder

Hoola Bronzing Powder is gorgeous for giving the skin some definition as well as adding some colour. The matte bronzer has a smooth texture, is easy to blend and is a believable tan colour that doesn’t look at all orange.

If you’ve tried Hoola in the past but found it to be too dark for you, then the brand new Hoola Lite Bronzer is the answer, the gorgeous Hoola formula in a lighter shade.

Rollerlash Super Curling And Lifting Mascara

Rollerlash Super-curling and lifting mascara

Another of the standout mascaras from Benefit is Rollerlash, the mascara that’s designed to grab, separate, lift and curl. Just one coat of this product delivers defined, lengthened and lifted lashes. The formula is flake-free and smudge-resistant and is fairly easy to remove.

The Porefessional Face Primer

The Porefessional face primer

The Porefessional face primer is excellent at helping your makeup stay in place all day and ensure that you look flawless. The primer goes on dry and silky, making skin feel flawless, and makeup application a dream come true.

They’re Real Push Up Eyeliner

They’re Real Push-Up eyeliner

It takes plenty of practice to perfect your eyeliner, and the right tools can go a long way in helping. Benefit’s They’re Real Push-Up eyeliner is one of those products. It has the texture of a gel-cream dispersed through a pen-style applicator, and the twist-up packaging stops the formula drying out.

The eyeliner comes in black as well as other deeply pigmented hues of brown, blue, purple and green. The AccuFlex tip hugs the lash line, and colour is applied evenly and easily, and the slanted point makes it easier to create the winged effect too.



The simple, rose-tinted liquid cheek colour of Benefit is definitely a beauty classic. The multi-use product can be used on the cheeks and lips and we love the stained effect this product gives, plus it’s really easy to apply.

That Gal Brightening Face Primer

That Gal Brightening Face Primer

That Gal Brightening Face Primer is the perfect option if you want a glowy look to your face, the lotion has a pale pink shimmer that’s not too overpowering when you apply it all over your face.

It smooths over skin for easy and flawless application of makeup and you’re left with skin that looks healthy and glowing.

Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream

It’s Potent Eye Cream

Rich and hydrating, the Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream is a firm favourite, designed to target dark circles the eye cream feels lovely on the skin and it’s not too greasy either, which means the application of concealer on top isn’t disturbed.

Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation Review

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow

The Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation is a gorgeous light to medium coverage foundation that leaves skin looking healthy and radiant.

The oil-free brightening liquid foundation leaves skin with a natural-looking foundation, although the shade range isn’t excellent, there are nine to choose from, if you do manage to match up, you’ll be happy you have. An excellent foundation with reliable broad-spectrum sunscreen, and the lightweight, yet hydrating texture is fragrance free.

Posie Tint

Posie Tint

Posie Tint is the lighter sister of Benetint, the liquid blush and cheek stain. While Benetint is a lot brighter, Posietint gives a translucent flush of warm pink to the cheeks. This stuff sets quickly and doesn’t budge so you have to be fast when applying, but the colour looks natural and it enhances the complexion beautifully.

High Beam

High Beam

High Beam is the highlighter version of the cheek stains from Benefit, the colour is a silvery-pink and it leaves you with a gorgeous glow. Apply this to your cheekbones, brow bones, cupid’s bow and anywhere else you’d like a shimmer. This product lasts really well and goes on easily without disturbing the makeup underneath.

Watt’s Up

Watt’s Up

Watt’s Up is the creamy highlighter from Benefit that we love even a little bit more than High Beam.

The velvety texture blends easily into skin and looks just as good on top of makeup as it does worn with bare skin. The luminous shimmering sheen has peach and champagne undertones, so it’s really warm on the skin.



Hervana is a pressed-powder blush which is named after the heavenly flush of colour it gives your cheeks. There are four shades that are swirled together for a pinkish, iridescent colour.

The lightweight, silky powder texture blends well and offers skin a radiant glow.



Admittedly it was hard to get on with Dandelion at first, but when you get used to using this highlighting powder it really looks gorgeous even though it is quite subtle. The soft gold undertone and sheer amount of shine looks gorgeous on the skin. And like all Benefit powders, it has a smooth texture, the powder is finely milled too so application is easy and even.
