So I’m back blogging! I took the summer as my first proper break in 5 years and I have to say, I loved every single minute of it. Lar was off from teaching so we took Oscar out every day and had loads of fun and then stayed up late watching movies every night. I have to admit, it’s lovely to be back blogging but sometimes you need to take a step back to recharge and see if you still want to do it. Luckily, here I am and I’m raring to go again!
Benefit are best when they’re knocking out a brow product or a dinky box of blush. I don’t have either here today, but I seem to have caught Benefit in damn fine form when they’re focused on really clever, wearable new incarnations of existing products. All out at the end of last month, there’s a Hoola Quickie Contour Stick, a Hoola Lite (thank you from pale people everywhere) and a very intriguing Dandelion Twinkle Powder.
Now that I’m blogging twice a week rather than four times a week (best decision ever by the way) I’ve been struggling to mention all the products I want to in a given month as I tend to write a lot of posts on individual products or collections. So I’ve realised posts like this are the way to do it so you can expect to see a lot more of them. They’re fun to write because I can condense my thoughts a little and they’re probably more fun to read as you’re more likely to see at least one thing that you’d like to try out. So meet this month’s contenders that are all new releases in the past month or so and nothing is over €20.
