I gave only tried benetint which I really like. I want to treat myself to some new make up and would appreciate any pointers smile

I've got their new brow stuff- sorry can't remember name but is quite new and has "fibres" apparently which plump up lousy brows! I love it.

Much maligned but I love "They're Real" mascara.
But the Plum Bad Gal makes me look like I've had a poke in the eye with a stick.

I have a mini lipgloss - Coralista- which is nice.

I really like the look of the blushers in the square boxes too...

Dandelion face powder is gorgeous. I've used it for about 10 years, never found anything better.
Beware, there are lots of Benefit haters round here!

I like the dandelion blusher, and have a couple of their kits, realmeant of concealment as well as an eyes one. Also like moonbeam and high beam.

porefessional is really good if you need that kind of thing. The Throbbb and bella bamba blushers are great, warning though, go lightly with bella bamba as it is VERY bright if not applied lightly!

I like their smokey eyes and neutrals eye makeup combinations - that might be because I'm hopeless with makeup and they tell you exactly what to do with it!

Dallas blusher is my staple. Hoola is a bit too dark but Dallas is perfect.

I use the dandelion powder as an everyday blusher. I am pale and it suits.
They also do a nice smokey eye shadow set, complete with full instructions.

I'm a makeup junkie and I really rate (and use every single day) all their blushers and highlighters especially Dandelion blusher and High Beam highlighter.

Their Oxygen Wow foundation is pretty good too as is their concealer.

I don't rate the They're Real mascara. It's shockingly awful. I took it back for a refund and I never take anything back!

Their eyeshadows are a bit crap too.

I really like Dandelion, Benetint and Posytint - all are well worth the money.

Cha Cha tint is nice but I wouldn't personally buy it again.

Porefessional is good, but I think it's v expensive for such a small pot so I don't think I'll repurchase.

Don't like the mascara.

Ooh, thanks for the tips. Was looking at the posietint and lollitint as thought they looked a bit more summery than benetint. Like the idea of eye shadows with instructions!

I love erase paste.... But your skin is probably better than mine smile I love the smokey eye kit too.

sillymillyb Thu 24-Apr-14 16:57:16

Oh yes! And the high beam highlighter. It makes me look all human and stuff!

DillydollyRIP Thu 24-Apr-14 16:59:37

I use dandelion powder, benetint and porefessional.
I also have the posietint but it's too pale for me even though I have pale & freckley skin.

Like a lot of others on here I love all their boxed powders - Dandelion is a beautiful shade and lasts for ages and Dallas, Hoola and the very outre Throb are good too. Tbh, I find a lot of their stuff a little twee and expensive for what it is. The cheesecake motifs grate on me a little and I find the staff a bit hard sell too.

I loved their Dandelion Powder and used it for years. But now I'm in my mid-40s I don't think it flatters me anymore.

Still love their Hi-Beam though, but use it very sparingly just to accentuate my brow bone, and a tiny dot in the cupid bow of my lips.

TheBabyFacedAssassin Thu 24-Apr-14 17:28:55

Oooooh I got accosted by a Benefit robot in House of Fraser on Monday. She was trying to foist that new brow thing on me, if it's getting a recommendation will have to look into it further!
Benefit do a highlighter I love, it's not high beam...can't remember what it's called but it is the most beautiful champagne colour which is really flattering and warm. Watts up it's called :-)

Brodicea Thu 24-Apr-14 17:29:34

Porefessional is great - totally blends away any pores (I am a porey one) and also High Beam - always used before a night out

TulipOHare Thu 24-Apr-14 17:53:38

Love Dandelion but prefer Posietint, gives a lovely fresh, natural look.

FruitOwl Thu 24-Apr-14 18:05:22

Another vote for Coralista lip gloss, fantastic colour and
not sticky. I also love Benetint and Georgia blusher which is a lovely peach colour.

TheOriginalSteamingNit Thu 24-Apr-14 18:09:15

I vary between benetint and dandelion - I like both. I've got the lemon aid eye thing but only use rarely - and a rather dramatic mascara as well. I think they have a lot of stuff that's a bit unnecessary, and am not as into them as I used to be, but I like all the above and high-beam too.

Snapespeare Thu 24-Apr-14 18:16:51

brow zing (?) amazing. i have rubbish patchy eyebrows, it fills them in without looking drawn on and fake.

Itscurtainsforyou Thu 24-Apr-14 18:31:41

I love the "big easy" foundation they've just brought out - I also was given a sample of their moisturiser and have been quite impressed with that too.

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Thu 24-Apr-14 18:41:10

Bad gal is awful, but I like the brow stuff in a box with a wax, but the dark never gets used. I'm allergic to their eye shadows funnily enough.
