Hey Guys,
So today I am doing my second post of the series, 'Are they Worth it?' This month is Benefit, now I haven't tried an awful lot from benefit, but the things I have I can definitely review and give my opinion on if they are worth the money!

First Up is Benefit Hoola Bronzer- £23.50

 It is a really good bronzer, not to orange but with enough pigment.Really nice for contouring with and in my opinion worth the money! However it is really expensive for a bronzer and you could probably get something similar from boots!
I haven't tried many bronzers so couldn't give you exact dupes, but I know No7 do good bronzers and if you want to go a bit more high end MAC do as well. If someone asked me what one thing should I buy from Benefit, this would definitely be it. You are getting your moneys worth as it was last you ages, it looks like I have barely used mine when I use it everyday!

Next up is Benefit Boi-ing Concealer-£17.50
Again this is something that I really like and was actually the first thing I bought from Benefit last year! It claims to help get rid of spots as well as being a good concealer, I couldn't say if it does help to get rid of spots but it definitely covers them up! However for a concealer it is not cheap and I wouldn't repurchase this so one dupe I have found is:
Soap and Glory Kiss Ass Concealer - £10 I absolutely love this concealer and you are definitely getting more for your money as you get two concealers and a powder for £10 !

Next is Benefit They're Real Mascara- £19.50

 I bought this just before Christmas last year as it was a very raved about product. However I wasn't completely wowed by this and wouldn't say it is my favourite. It gave my lashes a lot of length but not volume, I found that I had to build it up and would only wear this on occasions as it looked a bit much for everyday. This meant that I wasn't getting much use out of it. I am not saying that it is a bad mascara, it is really good if you like really long and full lashes but not for me. I would much rather send a little bit extra on my YSL Baby Doll Mascara than repurchase this. I do like it but it is not my favourite.
A really good dupe that I found that also gives you a really false lash effect is:
Maybelline Falsies Mascara -£7.99

That's it for this post, hopefully this might have helped if you were thinking of buying some of these things, if I was to repurchase one it would definitely be the bronzer!
See you in my next post!
