Benefit Fine One One

I pined over the Benefit Fine One One (£23.50) for quite a while after it was first released over a year ago but i stayed strong and stopped myself from buying it and i probably would have continued to stay strong had i not spotted it in a blog sale earlier this year. For £8.50 i felt i just couldn't let it go - even if it did mean cheating on my make up ban a little bit!

Benefit are always on top form with the packaging; they really know how to design and sell a product and the Fine One One is no exception. It comes in a small 'metal' casing that is a lovely rose gold colour and it's really compact; it's actually a lot smaller than i thought it would be but that handy size makes it great for travelling and as it's a multi use product means it saves even more space. One thing i do really like about the packaging is that you twist it up to get more product. there is no sharpening or squeezing involved so you won't waste any of the product.

The Fine One One is a cheek and lip product consisting of three shades - a shimmery pink highlight, a sheer pink blush and a matte coral blush or contour. I personally use this only on the cheeks; its designed so that you can sweep it across the cheeks, blend out and easily achieve that effortless glow to the cheeks. I only need to swipe this over my cheeks once to get the amount of colour that I'm happy with; it's not highly pigmented but it's enough for me - i imagine you could build this up to get a more heavier shade if that's what you prefer.

I really enjoy using this as with a quick sweep across the cheeks you're pretty much good to go and having the highlighter, blush and contour combined means you can miss out multiple steps in your make up routine. It's perfect for those days you want a really easy and natural look as it gives a really nice healthy glow to the face without leaving you looking overdone. As it's a cream product i find it super easy to blend in and it really adds to that natural look. The fact it's multi-use also makes it a perfect lazy girl product because as well as covering blush, highlight and contour; you can use the highlight on the brow bone and it's also a lip product!

I find this usually lasts a good 5-6 hours on me so it does last pretty well, i don't know if that's helped by that fact i wear face primer or set my make up in place with either powders and sometimes setting sprays but either way i think that's a good amount of time for it to last as I've had other cream blushes that don't last half as long.

Overall, i think this is such a great product and i love how versatile it is - it's makes achieving that healthy glow to the skin so easy and it's just the perfect lazy girl product especially if you like those extra 10 mins in bed or you're always prone to being late because its like applying three product in one go!
