Lou's Reviews : : Benefit's Confessions of a Concealaholic Kit

Aloha Bloggerinos!

How are you all? I've been a bit under the weather this week and also busy busy so have had to put the blog on the backburner- soorrrrryyy! I did get back in the YouTube saddle and made a new video- have a little looksie on my channel if you are interested.

Well, this is a review of this new jazzy little thing I picked up last week, in preparation for my Big Pink Sparkly Wedding- woop woop!

This is the Confessions of a Concealaholic Kit by Benefit and it retails for £28.50. I do think this is a lot of mula to spend on concealer but I have been looking at some of these full sized items for some time and decided that by combining them all into miniatures and trying out so many different Benefit products, this was actually a good deal. Also, if you can't splash out on wedding beauty, when can you?!




This item starts of as a box, pull off the card sleeve, open it up and its like a little book- tadaa! I love that is has a proper mirror (not one of those rubbish flimsy plastic ones that makes you look like a gargoyle) and that is has a handy booklet of instructions and diagrams. The design of the packaging is spot on, as usual with Benefit, but I feel that the cardboardness off it is going to get pretty tatty very quickly. Something to look pretty on your dresser, but maybe not to sling in your handbag. When will Benefit stop making everything out of card?!

So here we have the contents of this little beauty, all pristine and new (they have been used lots since!) and I love love love how they are all laid out. Mmm eye candy. :)
 



The little brushes are actually alright and the products themselves did not disappoint. I felt a lot more confident after using this kit and will certainly be using every item on my wedding day and keeping it to hand for touch ups. This little beauty even saved the day at the wedding I went to this weekend, when the Groom (my Fiance's brother) woke up with a HUGE red spot on his cheek. Boi-ing 2 and Erase Paste saved the day and the Bride still said "I Do".

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is curious about concealers by Benefit and would also say, next time you are near the Benefit counter, pick up a catalogue. It's great to peruse their stock at your leisure (I know some people aren't keen on the sales ladies at the counters watching you etc) and on the back there are little tokens for free makeovers. I usually give these to my sister but if you were going out or something that night, you could treat yourself for FREE. Woop woop!
 

Have you tried any of these items or are there any Benefit products you are crazy about?

Toodlepip!
