Let’s just get straight into it, shall we? If I have missed one out, or maybe forgotten one feel free to leave it in the comments, below. Don’t forget to sign up for my email notifications so you know when I post, you can also follow me on Wordpress, and all my social media platforms which are listed, below (I feel like I’m writing a script for a Youtuber saying that. Don’t forget to hit the bell!)
I’ve never done anything beauty related on my blog which is ridiculous considering I’m a trained beautician and makeup artist, so you’d think I’d do more of these posts. I was never one of those girls that had a love affair with makeup when I was younger, although I do remember biting down on lipstick and discovering it tasted disgusting. It’s almost like I can still taste it, now, all these years later. Don’t eat lipstick, lads, it’s no nice, don’t do it. For the record, it tasted like chemicals and crayons and was ruby red.
I started my love affair with makeup at around 16 and have been an avid “collector” of makeup ever since. As a makeup artist, I keep my ears to the ground for any new products that come out and have my preferred brands. I’m very particular about products, if you’ve followed me on social media for a while, or read my previous blog posts on my old site, you’ll know I’m a huge lover of animals of all shapes and sizes so I refuse to buy from any retailers or companies that test on animals.
That’s one of the things I love about Benefit, they don’t test on animals at any part during the development process for any of their U.K, Ireland, or U.S. customers. This is something that I look at before I purchase any product and I’ll avoid purchasing or posting about any that are tested on animals. It’s 2019, there is absolutely no need to STILL test on animals. Another thing I love about Benefit is the price, I’m a university student and like most students, I’m a broke ass bitch 99% of the time so I look for bargains where I can.
The idea for this post came a few months ago as I was clearing out my makeup collection (you should do this for any liquids or gels as they do have expiry dates). I have quite a few Benefit products and I do tend to pick the products up and use them on a regular basis on myself, and on my clients. So, why not do a post on the products I love from Benefit and maybe you’ll find a new favourite!
