Their dandelion pink face powder is really nice, seems to suit very fair skin like mine.
And their 'that gal' primer is also good, I actually just got a new one and saved quite a bit of money of it (the joys of having a Boots card, mwahahaha).

Sugarbomb doesn't really have a "sparkle" finish; it's more like a satiny-pearly sheen. It's similar to Coralista, if you've had a chance to try that.

^ Yes, it's more like a sheen than a "sparkle" or shimmery finish. It's great for everyday use!

I second the dandelion recommendation - probably the most natural blush I've tried that still makes a lasting difference

If I'm using a tint, it goes under foundation. Not so much because of the color, but because it doesn't go on properly for me on top - maybe from the oil in my foundation.

Also like eye bright pencil (way better than a white pencil for inside the lashes), high beam (as highlighter only), moonbeam (mixed into foundation), ooh la lift also good but not as good as touche eclat for me.

Lip plump won't be bought again. The bad gal liner and mascara seemed very mediocre. Dr Feelgood was like putting oil directly on my face (and yes, I was applying it correctly ). Playsticks I like but bit thick.

Next on my list to try is thrrrob blush (looks smilar to my usual mac pink swoon but more natural).

Recently I got two Benefit products - They're Real! mascara (it might be my new favourite mascara) and Rockateur Face Powder. I have a soft spot for blushes and when I first saw this I just knew I had to get my hands on it (even though Benefit is not available in my country and the company does not ship here). It's very subtle (not overly-pigmented but buildable) and so pretty! I've been wearing it non stop since I got it! The only thing I don't like is the package. The blush sits so deep in the pan that makes it hard to reach.

I remember reading on some beauty blog (beaut.ie, I think) a blush they've recently released has an amount of product the same weight as a €2 coin, outrageous considering the price
I love their mascaras but I don't think I want to buy from them again after hearing something as ridiculous as that!

That's right, Rockateur contains only 5g of product while the regular Benefit blushes contain 8g. I think that's a total rip off. I wish I had known that before. Nevertheless, it's a nice blush.
