I think the whole world has fallen in love with the quirky American brand with the ever so cute retro packaging, and the brand has so many products that have now got a cult following. Here are my picks for the Best of Benefit;



Benefit Benetint*


This rose-tinted stain is such an amazing multi-tasker, suitable for both lips and cheeks. It applies sheer for naturally flushed cheeks with a rosy hue, but as it is so concentrated, you have to be careful not to use too much or you will end up looking like a clown. Just a few drops on each cheek is all that is required, and be make sure to blend quick before it dries.

And this beautiful glow stays put all day long without fading or sliding. On your lips you can wear it on its own for a nice stain, or under your preferred lipstick of lipgloss for an even longer lasting finish.
RRP: $55 (12.5ml) – Available from Myer


Benefit Highbeam


This is a pale pink liquid highlighter with a nice pearlescent glow. It is perfect to use on the cheeks and under the brow bone, and anywhere else were you want a nice radiant glow.

Alternatively you can also wear it under your foundation or even mix a few drops into your foundation for an all-over lit from within glow.
RRP: $55 (12.5ml) – Available from Myer


Benefit The Porefessional*


As someone with combination skin prone to breakouts and large pores, I cannot rave enough about this primer. If you haven’t seen my previous review, you can see it here. This primer instantly helps minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines, leaving the skin feel and look more even. As a result my foundation slides on so much easier, and I need to use less to achieve an even result, and what’s even better is that it also helps make my makeup stay put for so much longer. I don’t know what I did before I discovered this primer!
RRP: $53 (22ml) – Available from Myer


Benefit They’re Real! Mascara


This mascara has won awards across the world, and no wonder. I don’t like false lashes. I can never put them on properly, they often fall off, and besides, I rarely have the time to apply them. So I rely on a good mascara. And as promised this mascara delivers lashes that look like you’re wearing falsies. It lengthens, curls, volumises, lifts and separates, all why staying put all day and not dropping any particles into my sensitive eyes.

And no clumping! It is easy to apply, and even just one coat will give you a nice look, while a few extra coats gives you a more dramatic length and volume. The plastic brush makes it easy to get to the root of your lashes while the little round ball with the spikes on the tip, makes it possible to get to even the tiniest of lashes.
RRP: $38 – Available from Myer


Benefit Hoola

How often do bronzing powders make you look like an orange oompa-loompa! Not with Hoola. The finely milled powder gives you a natural looking tan all year round, making it look like you’ve just come back from beach holiday.

It is long wearing and unlike most other bronzers, it has a matte finish with no sparkle or shine, and it is so easy to apply with the small soft brush that’s included, although I do prefer to use a long-shafted brush. It also works brilliantly as a contour powder.
RRP: $51 (8g) – Available from Myer


Benefit Rockateur*


In the midst of winter my face couldn’t get any paler and add to that a teething toddler that currently sleeps worse than a new born and I often look drained and tired. Enter Rockateur. This blush powder in rose with gold instantly gives my cheeks an amazing flushed look, that brings back glow and life to my face.

Thanks to the special formula featured baked, powder, cream and fluid, the blush is extremely pigmented, so it only takes the lightest of sweeps for a good colour pay off that simply stays put all day long. And thanks to the rose gold, it has a nice sheen, giving you just the right amount of glow without being over the top.
RRP: $51 (5g) – Available from Myer


Benefit Gimme Brow*


Decades ago thin brows were in. So mine got plucked. And plucked. And plucked. With the result that they today are a lot thinner than I like, so I rely on a good brow product. Gimme Brow is a brush-on fiber gel adheres to skin & hair instantly building up for a thicker brow and arches that looks so natural. The tapered brush makes it so quick and easy to apply and blend, while the precision tip makes shaping the brows a breeze.  

And thanks to the waterproof formula it is both smudge proof and very long-wearing. So while my brows now appear thin, at least thanks to Gimme Brow I can have thicker brows too.
RRP: $32 (3g) – Available from Myer

So there you go. These are my top picks from Benefit. But I can also honestly say that I to date have not tried a Benefit product I didn't like, and with such a large product range, there are heaps more of their products that I would so love to try..

  1. Benefit Gimme Brow is amazing! Dare I say, HG brow product?! I love that I can just swipe that stuff on my brows in 2 seconds and not have to do anything more.

    1. Gimme Brow is so new to me, but I agree, I instantly fell in love with it, it is so quick and easy to use. I will definitely buy it again.

  2. I've been on a massive Benefit kick lately, especially loving Benetint, High Beam and Gimme Brow (and of course Hoola:) I'm keen to try Rockateur, it looks incredibly pretty!

    1. What's not to love! And they have so many more products that I am so keen on trying too, but I'm trying hard to be good....
