Benefit's New Products: Roller-Lash and Puff Off

If you follow my Instagram or Facebook, you would have seen me attend an event with Benefit Cosmetics. I had an amazing evening (in a giant Benefit Lorry made to look like a 1950's hair salon!) but due to a formal announcement this morning, I had to wait to post about the amazing new products we were given to try out.

I think every girl loves something from Benefit and has it in their collection. Benefit are launching 2 new releases in the next two months. Firstly, at the end of January Puff Off is hitting counters. The name alone is fabulous! The concealer formula is dispersed via a mini metal iron that aims to cool and sooth under eye puffies. This is a must for anyone that suffers from insomnia (i.e. me!), new mums, students who like to party or those who don't wear much makeup but like to hide any little flaws. The formula is very light and it really brightens the under eye area. It reminds me a lot of the YSL Touche Eclat. Many people use the YSL as a concealer when in fact it is a brightener. Benefit's Puff Off is ideal for those who need that under eye lift whilst still covering the bags!

Secondly, Benefit is launching their new mascara at the end of February. Many of you will be Bad Gal or They're Real fans so this is another mascara to add to their portfolio. I have to admit that I'm not a They're Real fan but used many a tube of Bad Gal in my youth. Roller-Lash uses amazing new brush technology to curl your lashes. The brush is key to how this mascara works with tiny hooks to make straight lashes go from 0 to 100. I have been trying this mascara out and absolutely love it. I makes my lashes look long and separated and it also works fantastically on bottom lashes too. Another bonus is that it's easy to remove- hooray!

Although Roller-Lash doesn't hit counters for another month, if you pick up the March Edition of Elle Magazine you will be able to try it out before you buy the full size! A mini version is free with the magazine (I always love these for my handbag!). 

Many thanks to Benefit for a great night of laughs and two great new launches. Let me know what product you are looking forward to trying the most by commenting below or by tweeting me @GemmaLEBond.
