15% off voucher [03 Nov 2008|08:57pm]

[ mood | yay ]

Hi everyone,

Thought I'd share this... I'm a fan of Benefit UK on Facebook and they sent me a link for a voucher - it's 15% off online purchases from www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk plus a makeover coupon for UK Benefit counters.

I was a bit dubious at first but it's legit and I just claimed my 15% off my online order. The link is https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/02/00/00/01/54/58/31/154583122.pdf or you can just put the voucher code BENEFACE in when you make your purchase - it's valid until 8th November.

Now I just wait for my Bad Gal lash in plum, squee ;)

Hi there,

Im a newbie in this community. I come from Spain and Benefit products have just arrived in my city! I cant believe I didnt get to know them before! I love them! Ive started my collection with 2 basics , Dr. Feel Good and YouRebelLite, as Im quite pale - and I had never used foundation, neither concealer cause I have quite a nice hydratated skin but now its wayyy better-. Ive been looking on the website, now Ive discovered this community and Im willing to learn more and more about the products and their possibility to help us, xD.

I have 2 questions to begin.

1.- Does anybody have any link to Dandelion info? I have just seen it mentioned here, as good for pale-skin girls, but we havent got it yet in Spain and I dont seem to be able to find it on the web page.

2.- Ive discovered a "must" in the BADGAL kit. But the Benefit Official webpage doesnt sell it, only Sephora does -and they dont do international shipping-. Ive just seen one through ebay but its rare enough to go for millions. Would anyone do some kind of "shopping service" for me? Id pay the item value+ shipping+ a bit  for the trouble.

Thank you everyone,

Mery :)

Some Kinda Gorgeous [27 Feb 2008|12:17pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]


Is there still anyone out there? ;) I just joined because I had to ask a VERY (yes yes) important question.

I would so very much like to try Benefit's "some kinda gorgeous". The homepage says this foundation (Is it one? My online shop says so...) fits every skin type and tone. However, I'm a very pale girl.

I mean look at that!Collapse )

Should I still give it a try? Anybody here who uses it? I'd be grateful for any kind of advice ♥

That Online Shop is my only option, btw. Benefit is only available in a handful of cities in my darling homecountry and I would have to drive for hours to take a look at it / try it. Sucks, I know...

Perfect 10? [25 Apr 2007|12:24pm]

Hey, I'm pretty new to Benefit but now that I've got my student loan through I'm looking to splurge... I already have Some Kinda Gorgeous and it's great especially since I'm completely clueless about how to apply make-up, and I was wondering if any of you have tried 10? I'm really pale and would like something to jazz up my colour a bit. Thanks.

Firmology [15 Apr 2007|08:59pm]

[ mood | rejuvenated ]


I got Firmology today and its amazing! I was a bit miffed at first as the tube looks like a sample (so small!) but you only need a v small amount, it goes a long way and makes your skin feel so much more toned (especially neck / jawline area).

Well worth a try if you need a pick me up : )

Bad Gal Blue [14 Apr 2007|10:24pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]


Im a newbie on LJ so went straight to find the Benefit community! I am a total addict and have tons of the stuff, so should feel right at home after reading some of your posts!

Has anyone got the new Bad Gal Blue Mascara yet? I got it last week and it really made my eyes pop. I also picked up Hopelessly Devoted to Pink and have used the glosses and two of the shadows to death!

My must have Benefit prods are:

Boi-ing - A total life saver
Get Even - Powder that goes on like silk
Dandelion (Winter) and Georgia (Summer) - Cant go out without them!
High Beam - Nights out arent the same without it - always gets a comment
Eye Bright and Mr Frosty (Day) and Gilded (Night)

And classic Kitten powder of course!

What are your absolute Benefit essentials??

This is kinda random, but does anyone else wish that High Beam had the same scent as Hollywood Glo? I absolutely love that rosewater smell, High Beam smells crap in comparison!

I have the BADgal eyeliner. Will sharpening it with any old jumbo sharpener do or will I have to succumb to BeneFit's?

Buh-bye - gone? [14 Jun 2006|11:22pm]

It's one of those things I've put off buying for ages and now I wanna buy some, I can't find it anywhere. Anyone spotted any or know where online is selling it? Preferably in the UK.
Thanks in advance :)

Eyeshadow question... [25 May 2006|05:04pm]

Hey guys. I am new to the community and Benefit. I've been eyeing up "Hey Bellboy" and "Marry Me Please" for a while. I was wondering does anyone here have them or has used their eyeshadows before? How is the pigment and shimmer factor? I love shimmery eyeshadows.

Black Orchid eye & cheek highlighter [09 Apr 2006|10:35pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

I'm thinking of buying Benefit Black Orchid eye and cheek highlighter in "it was the perfect alibi"..

I'm basically looking for something which will highlight my cheeks/browbone, which I can apply blusher over or under. Will applying powder blush over/under spoil the effect of the highlighter?

I currently use (and absolutely adore) YSL Touche Eclat highlighter.. Will the Benefit product to basically the same job?

Thanks in advance :)

Maybe Baby [23 Mar 2006|10:21pm]

I recently bought the Maybe Baby scent after months and months of deliberation and was so excited to use it. But when I brought it home, I found out that I'd spray it on and it's gone 2 hours into my day! It's driving me mad and I'm so close to returning it, because while I don't want to stink of perfume all day, what's the point of wearing it if it's disappears so soon?

I might be crazy but I remember when I tried it back in Fall 2005, it was a lot stronger, I tested it on my wrists at Sephora and went shopping for hours, and when I got home at night I could still smell it on me. Now, I walk out the door and as soon as I get to school, it's barely audible.

So question, did they change the formula or something for 2006 and how do you get the scent to stick to your skin for a decent amount of time if you do use this fragrance. Thanks.

hi :) [12 Mar 2006|04:20pm]

i'm completely new to benefit. but i always here such great things about this brand! so, after browsing the website for a little while, i found a plethora of things that i think i would like. but again, i have no experience with this brand. so, tell me what i shouldnt even consider getting, what i should definitely get, or if you could recommend something similar.. any feedback at all would be great.

so, are these items any good?
Not on my pillow
Bluff Dust
Bathina Body So Fine
Brow Zings
High Beam
Touch Me and Try to Leave Me Cream

i browsed/skimmed through the community a bit, and brow zings seemed to be pretty well-liked, as well as the touch me..cream. but i didnt see a whole lot about the other items.

thank you in advanced for any kind of advice!

Hollywood Glo [02 Mar 2006|10:57pm]

I bought Hollywood Glo because I loved how I looked when the makeup artist put it on me. Trouble is, now that I'm home, I'm not sure how to apply it.

Where? Just on my cheeks or also my browbone? Anywhere else?

Is it just a glorified highlighter? Would Moon Beams or High Beams have been a better purchase?

Thanks for all the help!
