So I'm currently doing a major overhaul of my skincare/make-up regime. I have 3 young children and school runs to contend with so don't have a lot of time to spend on myself and day to day only want to wear mascara and maybe a very light foundation or tinted moisturiser type product. Benefit seems to be really popular on here and I've just looked at their range and it seems reasonably priced. But I would love some recs off you guys about exactly which products you rate please before I buy stuff!

I do love my Benefit! I'll list what I use but to be honest your better off popping along to a counter and going through the different products to see what would work best for what you need.
Skincare: Refined Polish facial exfoliator, Total Moisture day / night cream
Makeup: Porefessional, Erase Paste, Stay Don't Stray, BrowZing, They're Real Masacara, Hervana Blush. I have also used Hello Flawless but didn't feel the need to buy more once it ran out.

Eek I love Benefit! I'd recommend Dr Feelgood - makes your complexion all lovely. Also LemonAid which I use under eyeshadow but you could use it on its own to brighten your eyes if you didn't have much time?

they're real mascara.
high beam to highlight cheek bones and brow bones for a night out.
I've tried Dandelion powder but it was too pale for me, I think when my current blusher runs out I'm going to try the Bella Bamba.

Thanks girls. Belle it's not that easy for me to get to a make-up counter at the moment but maybe I should wait until I can. I was just going to pick some products up in my local Boots. I'm happy with my current exfoliator but will try the Benefit moisturiser. Happy with my Maxfactor mascara but am def getting the erase paste and stay don't stray.

They're real mascara.
I'd get Sugarbomb too, it's lovely but try it first as I lot of people don't like blusher.
I love Nars lipgloss it's subtle for a school run but still glam.
In all honesty I've tried every concealer going and the Barbara Daly one at tesco is the best for me.
Depending on the size and shape of your eyes I'd get a couple of eye pencils but I prefer the No7 boots ones.

I'm rubbish at applying eyeliner Beez, it never looks right on me which is a shame because I love it on other people!

Total moisture cream & it's potent eye cream
Hello flawless powder
They're real mascara
I need to go see them about something to help my dark eyes though, the skin is so tired looking I need a brightner, any ideas?

Hepburn Benefit do something that brightens up the eye area.. I can't remember what it was called will go have a look..

I used to dot it under my eyes then dot a bit of normal concealer with it and blend altogether. its good, I think. Maybe ask at the counter if you can try some.
