Caution girlie blog coming up!! 

My name is Gina and I’m addicted to Benefit beauty products. My friend Jan thinks it’s hilarious that I have gone from being a sweep of mascara and lippy girl to full on make up. Well more carefully applied subtle layers to make the best of my ageing face. 

It’s been 12 months since I’ve been using their serum and potent eye cream and I can tell a difference. A few have commented on how much brighter my skin looks. Our secret right *taps nose!

I’m still a” less is more” kinda girl. I am still experimenting with eye shadow and perfecting the smokey eye look.  It feels odd to do anymore than that. 

Here are some of my new additions:


This is a lovely silky product, a bronze highlighter but also works as a brightener . After my primer I put some on my cheeks, centre of nose, chin and forehead, then blend with my newly acquired beauty blender. It gives me a nice dewy glow.

Can’t live without this

Over plucking my eyebrows in my 20’s has left me with sparse brows. I have mastered the fill in brow look.  Not a scouse brow in sight. This pencil gives a nice soft look. They are launching a new brow range in a few weeks.  I had a sample of a new brow pencil and it’s gone on my must have list. I was always a bit hesitant of using an eyebrow pencil as it reminds me of old people drawing on their brows. Luckily my take on this looks natural.

High Brow or highlighter.  I have been experimenting with this.  It goes on smoothly and really brightens my eyes.  Perfect for when I am feeling less than bright eyed and bushy tailed.


This concealer is amazing.  I have never used the YSL Touche EcLat but at £6.00 this is a bargain.  After looking at online tutorials on how to apply it really is now a can’t live without product.


I have been a massive fan of the Hoola bronzer so couldn’t resist getting the ‘Dew the Hoola’ a new liquid form.  It goes on well and gives a lovely sun kissed look.  I also was given the Hoola travel kit which had some new Hoola products in.  Perfect for my holidays.


My latest purchase.  I emptied my Herdy moneybox and had enough well nearly enough to buy this set.  It included a  handy “how to” guide and the eye shadows go on like silk.  So I am going to have fun playing with these.  Yes it does take a bit longer in the mornings to get ready but you’ve got to make the best of what you’ve got.
