Benefit: Hervana

Yesterday I made a promise with myself
That I could go to a shopping centre and not buy any sort of cosmetic
result: Epic Fail

As soon as I came down the escalator the first thing I seen was the Benefit counter 
and I knew I couldn't help myself! 
(It's an illness)

So anyway, I was only making one purchase and it was a toss up between 
Hervana and They're Real mascara

Hervana won
(but I will be going back for the mascara ASAP)

(Like my prop lol)

First of all I'm loving the new design with the box.
They now flip open and include a mirror which is always handy to have!
but they do seem to have reduced the size of the actual product to just 8g 
yet the price is still £23.50
I suppose you are paying for the mirror
I think I would rather have more product

The brush is now angled as well which is useful 
but I NEVER use the brushes, Does anyone else?

I adore these colours 
Soo pretty

Recently I have been using 
Bourjois in Rose D'or
but I have been feeling that it is maybe a little to PINK 
that coupled with my blonde hair is a Barbie disaster 

This is much more subtle and Rosey
If you want a decent colour you will have to build this product up a bit
but I would much rather have to build it up than walk about looking like a clown after one brush stroke

All in all I am very happy with my latest Benefit purchase 
What do you guys think of it?

  3. oh, and yes, you have to get They're Real. :) I LOVEEEE IT. however i layer it with a few other mascaras. maybe ill do a post on how i do my mascara since everyone always think my eyelashes are fake.
