Benefit Fine One One – Review


I’ll have a detailed post to put up tonight with details about the Benefit event I attended at the Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar on Saturday, but I wanted to get this post out and share with you an exciting new Benefit product which is due to hit the shops in 2013.

Fine One One is one of those multi purpose products that Benefit seem to excel in and that I have so much love for. Its a twist up cream stick comprising of a coral, pink and a highlight. This can be ran along the cheek bone to bring a sheer wash of colour to the cheek, used on your lips or to highlight the browbone – of course if you’re like me and you live for the glow that a blush can bring, you can layer the colours to create a really rosy glow. For a girl who loves hitting the snooze button for those extra 5 minutes in bed, multi purpose products make getting gorgeous in the morning that little bit easier.

After the current craze for everything rose gold that I’ve seen doing the rounds on blogs and Youtube alike, the packaging of Fine One One will tick all the boxes. This will be one of those luxury looking pieces you pop into your handbag for all of those touch ups on the go.

What I really loved about Fine One One is the versatility and feel of the product. This isn’t like any cream blush I’ve used before. One of the lovely Benebabes applied this for me and the velvety texture meant it applied super easily and left my skin with a really radiant glow. I usually struggle like hell with cream blushes because the texture doesn’t ususally agree with the matte finish I like, it usually causes my base to patch or wipes it off completely (I’m done trying to make the Stila Colour Convertible work for this exact reason). But with Fine One One, I’m sold.

Fine One One will be available for £23.50 (I think that’s right!) from January 2013 and will be the perfect treat to add some colour and glow to winter skin.

(Thank you to Laura @ Beauty Lovers Notes for supplying me with a picture of Fine One One as I must have been too busy playing with it and oohing and ahhing to take one.)
