For me this is a back up powder. The type of powder you buy if you're on a budge or you've gone on a trip and lost your makeup bag, this is the one I would bring.

When I was a teenager this was all I ever used, it's a good overall powder. It adds a little bit of coverage but I only use it to set the foundation.

Honestly as a makeup artist I would not use this on my clients, however I do love drugstore makeup! This just isn't my most favourite product.

However, I'm disappointed with their shade range, they have so many light shades but none for medium and dark skin tone. It's 2018 people.

I loved this, I love the packaging, it's so fun, which benefit are known for and a little goes a long way.

However, this shade can only be used for fair to like skin tones. It's too light and on medium to darker skin tones it looks ashy.

Pros:
- Small amount needed and lasts for ages
- beautiful undertone and can blend well into the skin, if used correctly.
- Can be built up to a very strong highlighter.

Cons:
- Doesn't blend so well onto matte foundations
- sometimes can look a little patchy

Review for: Dark Brown more...
I love a good brow powder, in fact when I first started makeup all I ever used on my clients was a brow powder. And ABH is a great brand when it comes to brows. They kind of started the hype on brow products I would say.

Pros:
- two shades, which is good as the beginning should always be lighter
-Nice amount in the pan
- Great pigment pay off
- Easy to carry around

I don't really have any cons about it, I just think there are other brands out there than can create the same effect.

Review for: Other more...
Mac eyeshadows used to be my go to but I have changed my opinion since. I don't reach for them as often anymore because I feel I can find better eyeshadows, cheaper in price and bigger pans. My main concern is they always seem to create a layer on top which makes it so hard to get pigment on your brush and I have to sometimes scratch it with a makeup tool to get some shadow on my brush.

I'll always use MAC eyeshadows and their other products for sure, and I will keep them in my kit, they're just not my go to anymore.

Pros:
- Long lasting
- Amazing colour shades
- All different formulas
- Easy to blend

Cons:
- Too high in price point
- Sometimes difficult to get on the brush.

Review for MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation - 2 months ago

Review for: NW20 more...
As a makeup artist, I tend to use so many foundations and as new products come out I try them and then replace them with my old staples, such as studio fix.

However, this is a great foundation and it is a safety net for me. I know I can rely on it, especially if they have oily skin types. It's a full coverage and it does last for many hours.

Tips:
- Works best with a beauty blender to stop brush stroke marks
- Works best of oiler skin types
- Make sure you set in any places you may crease.
- It can be built up a lot, however the more layers you add, the more it looks like it's sitting on the skin and it will feel heavy.

Review for: Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation more...
If you're looking for a light coverage foundation then this is the one for you! Although, I find I can build this up to a medium coverage.

Tips:
- Dont use a beauty blender, it will soak up product.
- Use a brush
- I like to use my hands and pat on areas of my face for extra coverage, like my cheeks.

Pros:
- Evens out skin and adds coverage
- doesn't settle in fine lines and wrinkles
- Gives you a healthy glow
- lightweight
- squeeze tube, easy for travel

Cons:
- it's expensive but once again she is a luxury brand.
- I think it needs to be lightly settled with powder, so it will last must longer

Review for: Soft Brown more...
I never write really negative reviews, I like to make sure I give pros and cons of each products as there are always at least one pro. But with this product I truly cannot say this is worth it. I understand the concept of it but I just don't think it works.

Cons:
- You cannot control the product, too much comes off.
- Doesn't blend well with the brow
- If you wanted to extend the brow you cannot get a precise line, it ends up looking messy.
- It's far too creamy, which means you need to set it, which means your brows will look even darker.

I just don't recommend this product. I love the brand. I love other products. But this one is a no from me.

But I will say, I understand the concept of it, quick, easy, on the go. Maybe if it was a little harder, smaller in width it may have worked.

Review for: 04 Medium more...
I love benefits brow products! This precisely my brow is one of my favourites. I would recommend this one for people who need to create thicker brows, simply as you can create small like brush strokes and as it says in its name, get it precise. Anyone could use this, I just think it's more effective for those who need a little bit more volume, shape for thickness to their brows. I think the price is up there but it's not a massive amount, anyone, even if you have to save a bit, can afford this.

Pros:
- great point to be precise
- nice, fun packaging and easy use
- great colour options


Cons:
- You can't sharpen it, so sometimes it looses its sharper point
- Depending how often you use it, you'll go through it quicker

Review for: Light-Medium more...
1 month ago I would have said this is the best concealer I have ever used. And a part of me still agrees with this. However a drugstore brand called Makeup Revolution have created the exact dupe. There is no difference at all. And it's £4!

Pros:
- Little goes a long way
- Nice, comfortable consistency
- Easy to blend
- Full coverage
- Doesn't crease

Cons:
- High price point
- Some could say that a con is the applicator (simply for hygiene reasons)

Review for Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte's Magic Cream Treat & Transform Moisturiser SPF15 - 2 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
The most amazing luxurious cream I have ever used. I have oily skin so I was worried about using this as it's a thick consistency; but it didn't break me out at all.

Pros:
- Smells amazing but the scent is quite strong
- Thick, luxurious consistency
- Blends into the skin easily
- Little goes a long way
- Packaging is amazing (in a glass tub)

Cons:
- SO expensive

Would I purchase it? I have and I will again. It's one of these products that's truly worth the splurge. I haven't found a dupe of this.
