Hi beauties. ☼
So a while ago I said I’d had a not so good experience with Benefit. For mine & my twins birthday (beautifulbreakable), a friend arranged for us to have our makeup done at a Benefit counter in Leeds. However, this experience wasn’t the best.
There were only two girls on the counter & the girl doing the makeup didn’t seem bothered, which to me was a concern from the beginning.
Jess, my sister, had her makeup done first & believe me, I nearly walked out when it was my turn. Both our makeup’s were simple & not well done at all. The foundation did not match at all, the girl slapped on products like no tomorrow. It felt horrid.
As you can see by the image above the colour clearly doesn’t match.
She applied a thick moisturiser, primer & foundation all at once without letting each product sink into the skin, hence the cake face!!! It felt like I had wet paint on my face, ew.
This was the finished result. I was fuming & we both ran to boots to get makeup wipes to remove it!
With any disappointment comes a high, at least we gave our friends a good laugh. Also, we bought Benefits Gimme Brow, I definitely don’t regret this, I love it 🙂
Despite this depressing post I haven’t been put off Benefit products. I’m just reluctant to ever get my makeup done at a counter again, I can do 100x better myself! :p
FYI. Jess complained & we got a free sample of the they’re real liner, bright eyes kit & a coupon code for discount off the next purchase. So hats off to Benefit for keeping their customers on board with fab service! 😀
Have you ever had your makeup done professionally? If so, where?
Lots of Love Natasha
