Guest Blogger- My Top 10 Benefit Products

I am very excited to have Rachel from RachelPhipps.com and The Glossy Guide guest blogging today! Rachel writes two of my favourite blogs which I love to read from start to finish as she writes so well! Today she is sharing her top 10 Benefit products with A Little Obsessed readers...

 More than I am for any other brand, I'm a totally self confessed Benefit junkie. I know their counter like the back of my hand, and I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of their catalogue. Basically, I've tried practically every single product they've ever come out with, and these are my 10 favourites. If you don't try anything from Benefit ever again afterwards, try something from this list! 
  1. Boi-ing
 I spent ages hunting around for the perfect concealer for my super pale, super sensitive skin and I finally settled on this one. It's thick but creamy, and provides really good coverage. It can easily be blended with a brush, but I recommend using your finger as it warms up to the touch and goes on easier with the heat of your fingers.
  2. Sugarbomb
 I've tried most of the Benefit blush boxes, but Sugarbomb has to be my favourite, as well as the one I have re-purchased the most. This quad gives a nice, slightly shimmery pink peach colour, soft and healthy. Also, if you're clever with your brush, you can get several different shades of blush out of this box.
 3. Fluff Shadow Brush
I actually would not be able to live without this makeup brush - I use it to put my eyeshadow on every single day, and I have done since I first got it a few years ago. It is incredible for application and blending, and I would 100% recommend it!
 4. Benetint
I've heard lots of reviews complaining that, unlike Posie Tint and Cha Cha Tint because this is a runny liquid it does not work as well, but I actually think this is the best Benefit tint out there, and I really wish the other two were like it too! Benetint creates a lovely ruby red sheer colour to your lips which can be layered for darker colour which works beautifully under lipgloss and lipstick as a base. It also gives you lovely rosy cheeks if you use the tips of your fingers to blend it that lasts for a long time and does not easily sweat or rub off.
 5. BadGAL Plum
This was the first coloured mascara I ever used, and unless Benefit bring out another mascara in this shade of plum I think it will be the only one I ever use too. The formulae is great and creates night long, thick lashes and the colour looks nice and soft for every day, and brings out the colour of blue and green eyes beautifully.
 
6. Total Moisture Face Cream
 From their b.right collection this face cream has a gorgeous silky texture, leaves your skin feeling absolutely amazing and smells fantastic, thanks to the mango butter it's chocked full off. It also does not make sensitive skin sting like some similar face creams from brands like Clinique are known to do.
 7. Speedbrow
My eyebrows are really thick, and even with grooming pretty much uncontrollable. It is by no means perfect, but this brow brush and gel, with two coats does a really good job at keeping mine in check and lasts almost all day.
8. Refined Finish Facial Polish
From the moment I first used this new exfoliating face scrub from their b.right collection I knew it was going to quick become my favourite face wash. It leaves your skin feeling soft, bright and moisturised, it smells good and the exfoliating grains are not too small that they don't work, but not too big and hard that they irritate the skin and cause redness.
 9. BadGAL Lash
This is the same formula as the mascara I mentioned at no. 5, but in black. Just as brilliant, but much better for evening looks.
 10. Moonbeam
Everyone goes on about Highbeam as a cult Benefit highlighter product, but I actually prefer Moonbeam. While Highbeam has a silver sheen, Moonbeam has a pretty, softer pearly pink after sheen, which I use on my cheeks and below my brows on every single evening look I put together.

What is your favourite Benefit product?

Huge Thank you to Rachel for sharing some of her Benefit knowledge, I have only tried three of the ten products mentioned but this has really inspired me to try some of the rest!

  2. I've never tried Moonbeam but the way Rachel's described it sounds gorgeous! I'm usually a Highbeam user (that makes me sound like a druggy doesn't it?) but I'm definitely going to check out Moonbeam!
