for some unjustifiable reason (aside from their gorgeous packaging!) i have recently become obsessed with the beauty brand benefit and their entire range of products to the point where i've spent hours browsing ebay for the best prices! fortunately i've managed to come away with sample sizes of just about everything as well as several full sized products. i think it's been the perfect way to test their products because several of them come in the one pack and you can get the justine case or valley of the stars kits for only a few pound on eBay (i've found that the UK site has the cheapest prices even when you factor in shipping). i'd have to say that my favourite product thus far is the benetint lip & cheek stain which you can (sort of) see me wearing in the following poorly lit photobooth photos.
i'm also rocking some sweet victory rolls that my gorgeous friend harriet did for me on saturday night. :) better pictures of my hair here & here. i've had a bit of a thing for the brand soap & glory for a couple of years ever since hearing that some of their products, particularly the righteous body butter, smell exactly like my favourite perfume, miss dior cherie. i bought myself a small body butter while i was in europe last year and a full size one from sephora while in singapore earlier this year and love it! so of course i bought a few soap & glory products from eBay as well - i particularly love the hand food hand cream which smells just like miss dior cherie as well. and as a side note i really, really dislike the fact that asos won't ship their products internationally! :(
and again, on eBay, i decided to treat myself to some new lip balms as lip products have always been my weakness. i loved the smell of the smiths minted rose salve that i bought myself on my stopover in taipei on the way home from london last year so i decided to track down the rosebud salve and the lovely strawberry lip balm of the same brand. they're not particularly cheap but the tins are beautiful and they will last you forever! definitely worth it if you've got the cash to spare.
