Benefit La La Land Lipstick

Benefit La La Land LipstickBenefit La La Land Lipstick

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a Benefit Lipstick in the Flake promotion. If you're in the UK im sure you will have heard about it but basically you can win either a Benefit lipstick or lipgloss when you buy a Flake. There are 1 million to win so you have a good chance, you just have to enter the code from the wrapper on the Flake website to find out if you've won. There is a choice of four lipsticks and two lipgloss shades.

I picked 'La La Land' Lipstick as I don't have many lipsticks in my collection and it looked like a nice wearable shade. It is quite a deep pink colour and is really moisturising which makes your lips look really full. I'm really impressed with the quality of the lipstick and the packaging is really sleek too, so for a 50p Flake I got a £13 Lipstick which is brilliant!

I would definitely go out and buy a Flake, even if you don't win, you still get to eat the lovely chocolate! 


  1. bargain! that's a good excuse to buy some chocolate (;,x

  2. I keep forgetting to buy flakes! What a good giveaway :)


  3. Well done!

    I haven't won one yet and am already beginning to feel sick at the sight of Flakes lol! xx

  4. Yey, somebody actually won!! All I've heard is people saying they DON'T win. Looks like a lovely lipstick - hope you enjoy it!!

  5. I won and i got the lipgloss but i wish to buy a lipstick soon as they are such good quality and very smooth!

  6. I've had two flakes and no winnings, I don't want to eat chocolate but I want a new lipstick!

  7. OH NICE: I not yet try this.

  8. Mmm i might go out and buy a flake now haha! XO

  9. I keep trying and trying to win! I swear I've got through about 10 flakes now :(

  10. Congratulations. Lucky you. Sounds like a great prize. The colour looks great

  11. I wish more places sold the promotional Flakes. Hardly seen them anywhere. Congrats on your win!
