Hot on the Highstreet Week 218 – Benefit Summer Favourites

Hoola has been the best-selling bronzer in the UK for the last 5 years. This Benefit product adds colour and a healthy glow to your skin all year round but it is a particularly key product in the summer months. This high quality powder will give a natural but exotic glow to any skin-tone. The texture is light and matte, which works perfectly in hot weather to stop skin looking shiny. The rich pigmentation means the product lasts for ages even if you use it religiously every day, it is also perfect as a contouring powder. I can’t stand sparkly bronzers, and am pleased to report that this products lacks any unnatural glitter, insuring the Hoola tan looks like it has really come a day at the beach. Packaged complete with a mini application brush, apply gently across face and neck for an all-over tan. Priced at £23.50.

Benefit has designed tints for every mood and every season. The newest, Lolli tint, offers a candy-orchid tinted glow for lips and cheeks. This multi-purpose product will give a natural flush and pretty-in-pink appearance. On bare skin the tint only needs one layer to offer a lovely girly blush. With bronzer add a few more layers to give a cheekier brighter pink shade. Dab on the cheekbone or lips and blend with fingertips for best effect. Packaged in a fun metallic pink bottle this product will always stand out in your make-up bag. Priced at £24.50.

I love the quirky name for this new soft focus highlighter. Previously I have always used the Benefit Sunbeam and Moonbeam, but this product offers a lovely daytime glow. Particularly good for eyebrow and cheekbone highlighting, Watt’s Up has a natural champagne tone that can be used on top of foundation or bronzer without disruption. This versatile product has two uses, one end has a sponge for easy application of the highlighter (though I preferred to use my fingers to blend) the other end has a creamy shimmer stick to add definition and shading to your skin. Great for all everyone, though more effective on medium to darker skintones. Priced at £24.50.
