My Benefit Addiction…

So I have recently discovered I have a slight addiction to Benefit Cosmetics... On a recent trip back home to the UK I splurged on Benefit products that I "really really needed"...  I also had a makeup tutorial in their Covent Garden boutique which was super fun.  Needless to say, I have quite a few Benefit reviews coming your way, starting with the product that was being overly advertised in every cosmetic shop on Oxford Street...the they're real! push-up liner.

Now I absolutely luuurve the they're real! mascara (review soon) so I thought I would give this a try.  Hmm... I was being "clever" and decided to try it out in Boots where I had been accosted by a Benefit staff member.  I have never been great with liquid eyeliner so I was a little bit aprehensive.  How wrong I was, this eyeliner was so easy to use and gave me an almost perfect line (no flick - one line at a time :).  I was sold!

Happy with my purchase I trundled home, not knowing I would never be able to recreate that look again.  I have had this liner for about 2 months now and I still have not been able to get any kind of decent line with it.  I can never get the flick right, and I find that by the time I have done both eyes, if I try to correct anything the applicator takes off whatever product is there!  Sooo frustrating!

So I'm afraid my they're real! push-up liner has to go in my "ugh why!" drawer and live with my shimmery eye pallettes that I also thought were a good idea.
