The one-stop pick-me-up

I was supposed to have had my first visit to the pain clinic yesterday but the doctor’s secretary called to say that he was sick. It is strange to think of a doctor being sick I know they’re only human (though some doctors would have you believe otherwise) but still. It was a relief really that it was cancelled as I was feeling quite rough – I was in too much pain to go to the pain clinic – so I tried to rest up. I got a little too fed up of rest as the day went on so I wanted to go on a magazine haul to cheer myself up. If film and T.V. has taught us anything it is that sick people must have magazines and grapes (I do actually have both beside me right now in bed). Too tired to bother about much make-up I reached for my quick fix -Benefit’s Fine One One.

Fine One One has been around a while but as I’ve only just started the blog I have a bit of catching up to do. It is a multi-purpose cosmetic stick that uses three distinct colours to highlight, contour and colour. With one swipe across the cheekbones you’ve highlighted, contoured and blushed your cheeks (just blend lightly with fingertips). Each colour can be used separately as a highlighter or colour on lips and eyes. I find swiping the pale pink highlighting colour on your eyelids and brow arches swipes away any redness or other signs of fatigue. It has a creamy texture that keeps its hydration throughout the day.The other colours give a natural healthy flush to lips too. This one product is a great weapon against fatigue that can be deployed in a swipe.

As you can see from the packaging its well-used! I like keeping packaging – helps to find things in your make-up bag.

      It’s lovely. I have to say I didn’t quite ‘get it’ until I saw it saw it demonstrated and now it’s one of my handbag essentials. Who would’ve thought that three strikingly different tones can be used in one swipe across the cheek bone and it could like so natural. x
