Review - Benefit Play Sticks :D

So I got this Foundation about a year ago, (well my mum bought me it) :D and i've probably only used around half of it. I wear it when im going somewhere special or i need an extra bit of coverage as i tend to wear minimal foundation on a day to day basis. I'm only 16 so i don't like to trowel it on like the majority of girls at my school :)

Anyhow, the first time i tried this foundation it felt a bit cakey and i didnt really like it all that much. However i soon found out that this is because i hadnt realised it was a cream to powder foundation. So round two and a much smaller amount of product later, I LOVE IT. Its excellent at covering my blemishes and leaves a smooth matte finish, also a little goes a long way (Which it ought to really when it costs £25.50). It smells gorgeous too as it contains green tea and chamomile, which is also good for the skin :D

It comes in 9 different shades and i got the one called 'Jax' which i would say is one of the paler ones.

I'd reccomend applying with a liquid foundation brush ( I use a Ruby and Millie face brush) as it starts off as a cream so could clog up a powder foundation brush. Then i tend to blend out with a cosmetic sponge. This works really well for me, however its always good to find the way that works best for you :). USE SPARINGLY!!!

If anyone else has this i'd love to know your thoughts and opinions :)

Love. XXX
