31 October 2013
Looking to update your beauty bag with some new Benefit make-up, or searching for the perfect Christmas gift for that big Benefit make-up fan on your list?
Benefit Cosmetics has been putting the fun in to beauty since 1976, when twin sisters and make-up artists Jane and Jean set up a tiny beauty boutique in the heart of San Francisco. They wanted to offer clever products for real women that solved all sorts of beauty niggles – and have a good time while doing so.
Since then, Benefit – the laid back Californian beauty brand – has taken over the world. Benefit make-up is now sold in over 35 countries, used by the best make-up artists and worn by countless celebrities, on and off the red carpet.
It’s no surprise then that many of Benefit’s products have achieved cult status in the beauty world. The w&h team have their own favourites too. Click through to see our pick of the best Benefit make-up hero buys…
If there's one thing in our make-up bags that we tend to scrimp on, it's mascara. But Benefit's They're Real is well worth the splurge because just one coat really does make all the difference. It's the best-selling mascara in the UK and with one sold every 10 seconds, you'd be mad not to try it!
Top on our Christmas wishlist, Benefit's little kit contains every thing you need for party season including miniatures of cult products like Porefessional (a mattifying primer that keeps your make-up on) and They're Real mascara along with four flattering eyeshadow shades.
