Benefit town about town mini £9 from larger boots stores
Swatch: hoola bronzer
Whenever I see a mini set of products like this I just have to purchase it. I love the concept of trying samples of products out and paying a smaller price for something I haven't used before because there isn't a risk of wasting as much money on something if it wasn't quite right. I saw this by the till in boots and didn't waste a second buying it. The mini set includes a mini some kind-a gorgeous foundation faker in medium, hoola bronzer and bad gal lash mascara.
I've always wanted to try benefit hoola as I've read so many good reviews about this. The bronzer is matt, which is perfect as I use bronzer mainly for contouring and don't like using bronzer with shimmer in. I'm quite pale and this bronzer is perfect for my skin and most of all doesn't make my skin look muddy or dirty as some products can do. This is easy to blend and lasts all day, will definitely be re-purchasing this when it's run out, although this sample will probably last a while.
I've never tried mascara from benefit before, as I have found the perfect mascara for me and that's No7 exquisite curl mascara or Maybelline colossal volum' express mascara and never really felt the need to try any others. This mascara provides good length to my lashes, but not very good volume. I was expecting more to be honest, as I do love benefit make up, but it just didn't give me the big voluminous lashes I was hoping for.
Some kind-a gorgeous is a foundation faker which is meant to leave your skin tone even looking, without it looking like you have foundation on. As I was looking through the pile of boxes in boots I didn't see any with any shades other than medium. I don't know if this was because the other shades had sold out or if the mini set only contains the shade medium, which wouldn't be too great. I found that this product was a little too dark for my skin and left a light coverage, which I wasn't too keen on, as I prefer full coverage foundations. It did actually even my skin tone out a little, especially on red areas, but this may of been because it was quite dark. A little goes a long way and this would be perfect for anyone who just needs light coverage.
Have you tried any of the products in this set, what do you think?
