The Bronze of Champions by Benefit Review

The Bronze of Champions by Benefit Review
 It seems ages since I've blogged about beauty products as recently my posts have been on lifestyle or fashion - purely because I have been spending quite a lot of time outdoors as its the summer holidays. But, my 'blog to do list' is getting pretty big so I need to start ticking off some to-dos and this is one of them which I was looking forward to blogging about!

I rarely shop at Benefit unless its for a repurchase of the They're Real mascara but other then that I tend to stay clear as I find it a little over hyped, because personally certain products have broke out my skin in the past... 
But, putting the negative thought aside I really fancied purchasing the Hoola bronzer as its been highly recommended by bloggers. So since I had just finished second year of university (at the time of purchasing this) I thought why not treat myself to some new high end products. Instead of purchasing just the bronzer I went for this set instead which was £26.50 it included a variety of other makeup products that I've been lusting to try including the bronzer..bargain! 

Since purchased in May I have been using these products quite regularly especially the Hoola bronzer and watts up highlighter. This makeup kit is amazing for achieving the 'bronze' look and has everything you could possibly need to look like a bronze goddess. I like to use the Hoola bronzer for contouring my cheekbones and nose I think it gives a nice bronze effect without looking to overly bronzed or contoured. 

I also like to use the Wats Up highlighter for my eyebrow bone, cheekbones and down my nose. I am really blown away with how beautiful this highlight looks like on my skin. I think I may prefer creamy highlights to powders as this was noticeable but looked really healthy. It does take a bit of time to rub in especially if you're wearing foundation but when it has rubbed in you definitely see that highlight. Its just a beautiful highlighter I can already see this in my favourites.


I have been occasionally using the eyeshadow products both separate or together and they are really pigmented. I love how my eyes stand out with these together and how easy it is to blend in. I do recommend a eyeshadow primer if you are wanting to wear bikini tint because it does tend to melt off.


Overall, I am really happy I purchased this set it was definitely worth the money and all of these products come in useful! since purchasing this I am considering buying another Benefit set when I get payed as I really liked this one.

  5. Until recently I was a bit of a Benefit fan girl butI've gone off them a bit recently - still love their Hello Flawless foundation though and of course that mascara! This set looks good though, perfect for a holiday!
