Benefit Dupe and the real deal..

hello lovelies, 
hope you've had a lovely Saturday, ive spent it shopping with the boyf and watching the new pirates of the Caribbean.

So today on my lil shopping trip i picked up a benefit item aswell as a dupe. After reading the lovely Georgia from Lippy and a LBD's post about Savers w7 dupe of Benefits Honolulu i just had to get it you can read her post about it here 

With the similar packaging and cute design the W7 Honolulu could easily be mistaken for an infamous benefit blush, obviously not the same quality but for £1.99 you really cant go wrong, the brush that comes with it is also highly similar to. Whilst i was browsing i also spotted Africa which is a dupe of two faced's pink leopard bronzer, sharing the same pattern on the blush itself also for £1.99 i was a happy bunny.

And here they are!!
I had to put them on this background as proof of how similar they really are, and here are the real deals

And on to the real deal, I finally gave into temptation and bought Confessions of a Concealaholic as their was a 10% discount at the counter in Debenhams. Ive sadly not been in posession of any Benefit items after my friend kindly bought me 'big beautiful eyes' in duty free and i managed to lose the dam thing on a night out (i still kick myself for it, and i never bring nice make up out with me anymore)

So the set includes That gal- brightening face primer, erase paste- brightening camouflage, boing 1 and 2- industrial strength concealer, lemon-aid - color correcting eyelid primer and eye bright- instant eye brightener.

As i have really spotty skin this was just perfect for me as a way of concealing my lovely skin ;) and my friend swears by it, i also had to laugh at the fact boing is described as industrial strength haha.

I think one of the lovely things about Benefit sets is the little instructions that come with it!!

Thanks for reading my Rambles
