Stuck in a Rut

It wasn't until I got a proper full time job I could stop shopping around for the best of the cheap make up brands or Boots and Superdrug's own that I could actually invest in some half decent make up when I discovered Mac. Maybe part of it was because girls always talked about how great Mac was, and maybe part of it was the fab reviews it always got and the fact in every youtube makeover the girl ALWAYS uses Mac products, but from the first time I used it I loved it, I could still never justify buying more than 1 or 2 products at once and always stuck to the basics, I have issues about spending too much money on "gifts" for myself, and I always mixed my make up bag with Mac and cheaper products, like the odd Rimmel eyeshadow (to take a colour risk) for example, but ive pretty much stuck with Mac for the last 5-10 years.. which is a relatively long devotion.

Yesterday while getting a pedicure I indulged in some of those magazines I usually wouldnt buy for home all that often because I never really sit and read them, but because I wasnt getting a manicure at the same time (I love you everlasting nails!) I read... Grazia, Ahlan, Hello, OK yes for once I was rude to my pedicurist, but in the long term its OK, she'll forgive me next time I discuss Philippine politics with her! I saw in each magazine was a review of a different Benefit Product, the one that grabbed me was "Pore fessional" I have issues with my pores, Microdermabrasion helped me loads, but quite often when I get home from a long day at work I really cannot be bothered will skin care, I know that sounds crazy, but I really cannot, this sounded like a dream product, although these are often too good to be true, the store opposite my nail bar sells Benefit! Oh and it was pay day, so I brought a few things which I am totally in love with and aside from my foundation (which took me years to find the right one at Mac) I will more than likely switch from Mac to Benefit....

Todays Products of my Dreams, that actually work wonders in real life:

Perfect for my overwhite skin.... ahhhhh so nice to buy products that actually do what you want them to and work for your skin tone etc on the first try :)

I couldn't find your boots microdermabrasion kit. Did it work for you? Would you recommend it?

Benefit has such nice products =) I really want to try the porefessional, but it's pretty pricey =/
