A Naughty Trip to the Benefit Counter…

Give me a credit card and a Benefit counter and I’m like a little kid in a toy shop – it’s my ultimate weakness. Opps.20140613-060829-pm.jpg

I’ve never been the ‘girly’ type (honest..) however I’m coming to admit I’m quite frankly the biggest girl when it come to shopping for clothes.. and make-up….and facial products…..and home ware…. damn. And it seems to just be getting worse, but hey! I have no shame. So today when the sun was shining and shopping was on the cards, I was the ultimate happy Hollie and of course the worlds biggest girl.

Well, my day actually started wonderfully when a cheeky Top Shop order arrived to my door, finally (I’m the worlds worst in waiting for orders)

If It is possible to fall in love with an item of clothing I think I might have because this skirt is BEA-U-tiful! I was extremely indecisive when ordering this, as I do like to see products I’m unsure of and it’s also way way out of the ‘Hollie comfort zone’. But I thought what the heck. I bought it and I couldn’t be happier. It’s incredibly comfy and gorgeous mint green and reasonably priced (I think the electric blue one is needed to be ordered…)

Okay so obviously then the shopping happened and as I said Hollie with a benefit counter is like a drastic party waiting to happen. I adore benefit makeup and literally all of their ranges, I use all of their skin care products, foundation, mascara, eye shadow, eye creams, bronzer ect. (You get the point) It works so well on my skin due to my awful pores and oily t-zones and is brilliant quality, so yes despite it being pricey it’s completely worth it, as it also lasts at least 6 months. Constantly buying new make-up gets boring and probably costs twice as much, so yep it’s fab for me.

I new I needed a new foundation and benefit’s foundation is literally the only foundation that sits on my face all day and doesn’t cause a completely overload of the ‘oily/shiny look’ – it’s basically a godsend. I usually go for the ‘hello flawless oxygen wow’ foundation in ivory however with summer coming up and my love for BB creams I discovered one of their newest products – ‘Big Easy’

After having a lovely chat with the man on the counter and trying all the different shades, I decided it was completely the best option, so I’m super excited to try this out. New products galore!

I then went onto buy my two usual products the ‘BAD gal lash’ mascara, the  ‘Brow rings’ eye brow kit and the Fake-up’ concealer   . Yes, they are quite pricey but are brilliant quality and work wonders, they also last so so long which is a massive convenience. These three are my ultimate favorite benefit products and if you know me, you shall know my eyebrows are my top priority (I spend about 20 minutes on them.. no joke…) Some this kit is like basically my other half… yep.

Okay, so I completely suck when it comes to making my eyes have any slight bit of decency, I usually stick to the old eyeliner and mascara and have it done with. It actually seems like forever that I’ve been trying to figure out some sort of way to may eye shadow, creams or what not actually work. So for the 100th time I bought yet another lil eye kit however I actually like the look of this one, it’s a new range (so obviously I had to try it out…..)

Because I’m such a fabulous customer the fab man at the counter gave me a lil free-bee and gift wrapped all my things, which was super nice.

So it was a good old day in the life of Hollie today, now completely broke, and I also splashed out on an awful lot of tea…oppss.

Ah well, all need to treat ourselves right?

Speak soon,
