Benefit Fine One One: My Thoughts..Sunday, February 03, 2013
When I first heard about Benefit's newest launch Fine One One, I was intrigued. A cheek colour and highlight stick? Huh? How would that work eh? I was instantly drawn to the highlight/peachy pink element of the product. It sounded right up my street. Luckily a few days later I was invited to the launch of Fine One One in London and off I went last week. The event was held in Benefit's Spitalfield's boutique. There we had a talk from the Benefit founder's daughters Maggie and Anne (scream!) and we had a good old girly gossip. We had a demonstration of Fine One One and I was eager to get home and have a play myself. After a quick pose on a segway, I headed home clutching very firmly on to my Fine One One.
I've also found that cream cheek products to not last that long, but after a good road test of full days at work, Fine One One definitely lasts all day, however due to it's compact and I add rose gold exterior it's easy to just throw into your handbag for top up's during the day. I love Fine One One and think it's the epiphany of lazy day make up, you can use it for your cheeks, to highlight your face and could even pop it on your lips like I have done above. I love the peachy shade, it's very similar to Topshop's coy but not as chalky. Overall I'm impressed with Fine One One, I love the concept, it's easy to use, really pigmented and gives your cheeks a peachy glow which adds a little summer to our faces during this grey, rainy, cold period. One little note is that I think this might be quite hard to keep clean, I try to wipe mine after use as you obviously get make up on it. So make sure to keep on top of wiping it. So yes Benefit, you've done it again, another stellar product. Benefit's Fine One One is £23.50 from Benefit stores, website or department stores such as Debenhams.
I hope you're all well and have a good week! I now have three days off whoooop, I'm hoping to get myself up to date with blogging and have a good old chill. I've come down with some weird chesty cough thing, which is odd cause I don't think I've had a cough since I got whooping cough back when I was like ten. That even made the front of the Shropshire Star I'll have you know. So I hope you're all good and not as coughy as I am. I think the rest of my Sunday should be spent eating and watching some trash tv. You agree? Oh good :)
