Benefit Fine One One Launch


Yesterday I hopped on the train to Leeds to go to the launch of Benefit's newest product Fine One One. It's a cream blush and lip tint in stick form consisting of coral, pink and champagne colours that can be used individually or all together to give a natural glow to the cheeks. You can see the peachy effect it creates in the picture above. Perfect for Spring and Summer! The lovely Benefit ladies showed us the different ways of applying it to create different looks. One way was to have the highlight colour  at the top at gently sweep it over the face for a natural look or you could face the highlight at the bottom and turn it 360 degrees to give a more defined look. The Benefit team are a right bunch of clever clogs! I was really surprised at how quick and easy the application was and it wasn't at all streaky.

It was a lovely time meeting other bloggers and spending the afternoon with Joanna who has become a friend through blogging. The Benefit ladies were all so kind and helpful they made the evening really enjoyable. Look how cute the nibbles were!

I think this is the most polite sweet I have ever eaten.

What do you think of Fine One One? Will you be splashing the cash on it?

  1. So jealous of you ladies getting to head up to Leeds for this! Sounds lovely, don't think I'd invest though as I'm a right old woman when it comes to blusher - I like a traditional style haha xxx

    1. I think I'd buy it if it was a little cheaper. I know what you mean it felt so weird having someone drag a stick across your face x
