How cute are the lollipops with the Benefit tints packaging?!

Last week I was lucky enough to attend an event (my first one eeekk) at House of Fraser, in Bristol for Benefit's latest release Lollitint. This is the fourth tint Benefit have bought out after the Bene, Posie and Cha-Cha. Lollitint has a slightly new formula, it is more gel based meaning that it is thicker in consistency to the orignal bene-tint, which is more water based. After comparing the different tints, I definitely prefer the formula of the Lollitint as it's a lot thicker making it easier to blend.

The lovely Benebabes Lucy, Kirsty and Hannah demonstrated how Lollitint can be used for a day and night time look. As the product is a tint this means that you can use in a variety of ways - either on a cheeks as a blush or on the lips as a stain. For the night time look the girls used Lollitint and High Beam together, which looked really good as the colours really complimented each other. The product is also really build-able so that you can apply more of less depending on the look you want to achieve. Fun fact - Lollitint is a candy-orchid shade, which has been voted colour of the year for 2014, so expect the see a lot of it coming out in the spring.

The girls also showed us The POREfessional Powder, another recent release from Benefit. It's a loose setting powder that also comes with a little brush, so is a great for popping in your handbag to use for touch-ups during the day.

After playing with all of the beautiful products (and eating all the cakes and sweets) we went downstairs to the counter, where we all had our eyebrows 'brow mapped' and also had a hand massage using the benefit skincare range.

Lollitint retails at £24.50. For 12.5ml of product I think that is a good price as you are effectively getting two products in one! Both Lollitint and The POREfessional powder are both available to buy now either online or from the Benefit counters in store. Finally a big thank you to the the Benefit girls, for putting on the event it was a lovely evening and it was great to meet some other beauty bloggers.

What do you think of Lollitint? I adore the girly pink packaging!
