Yesterday was the 14th of July which in France means fireworks, celebrations and most importantly, a Monday bank holiday! The three days were filled with potential for an incredibly exciting long weekend and yet with the never-ending rain and grey weather, it quickly turned into a dull and depressing time which actually had Tuesday seem scarily appealing! Obviously in this situation I had only one solution…
Well, is there a better refuge than a shopping mall? And just look who I discovered on my way out of Sephora! The brand new They’re Real Eye-liner and Remover from Benefit Cosmetics. I’ve read so much about this duo since the launch last month but seeing them for myself was all it took to convince me they were necessary additions to my beauty bag.
Benefit always seem to be one step ahead in the beauty industry with innovative products and unique formulas which rarely disappoint and the new push-up liner is a new star product in my eyes (literally!). The custom AccuFlex tip (I have no idea what this means!) ensures the application is super precise and as close to the lash line as possible resulting in bigger, brighter eyes and the gel formula is the perfect matte black which is totally smudge-proof and lasts all day.
I hadn’t intended to buy the They’re Real Remover too but as I tried a little of the tester to remove the endless liner tests on the back of my hand, I was so impressed by the soft texture and ease with which it removed the dark black lines that I had to add it to my basket. I love the gel texture and it really does wipe away the darkest of eye make-up in seconds. Perfect for waterproof mascaras and gel liners!
My verdict? These two new items have been a real hit with me and have proven once again that Benefit really do know best!
