(Sleeveless Blazer: Choies*/Knitted Crop Top: Choies*/Jeans: Topshop/Heels: BooHoo/Clutch: Next/Earrings: Topshop & Asos)

So this outfit includes a few lovely pieces which I was gifted from Choies online store including this amazing White sleeveless blazer and Grey knitted crop top. These two pieces immediately caught my eye and I'm so pleased with how they turned out to be! I always find it tricky ordering online from a website which isn't British as the sizing can be a bit confusing but was pleasantly surprised as to how well these two pieces fit me. I'm loving long-line blazers at the moment and the fact that this White one is sleeveless and has a bit of a different collar made me really drawn to it. I've paired it with some simple ripped jeans and the lovely Grey knitted crop top for a minimal yet 'put-together' outfit. I'm also OBSESSED with ear cuffs at the moment; Topshop have so many ear-cuff and earring sets, I just want them all. I love the look of earrings going up the ear as I don't really like to wear loads of jewellery and this gives something extra to an outfit in general. Plus, ear-cuffs are great for people like me who refuse to get their ears pierced (needle-phobic!)

Benefit Cosmetics, 'Puff Off' Instant Eye Gel

Coming to you with a new beauty add-on to the Benefit Cosmetics line-up. The good thing about working for Benefit is that I am lucky enough to get every new product before it's release, test them out and can then blog about it and tell you my honest thoughts. 
Benefit Cosmetics 'Puff Off' Instant Eye Gel, (Yes I know, silly pun but that's Benefit for you!) is their newest release and it's labelled as an instant eye gel to help smooth the look of puffs and lines. The way in which it aims to achieve this is with it's cute little iron shaped tip which applies the product to the delicate eye area. This tip is SO cold when you place it on the under eye and it is amazing for application in the mornings when you want to wake up tired eyes quickly. 
Gently, squeeze, (and I mean gently - I first applied this and ended up with the biggest blob under my eye!) and dot the gel under the eye with the applicator, then smooth out until it sinks into the skin. You really do not need a lot at all, so I reckon this little tube will last me quite a while. 
The gel itself has a translucent Peachy undertone to correct dark undertones as well as having light-reflective properties to also provide some brightness to the area. A peptide and antioxidant blend are present for aiding towards reducing that puffiness. I really like the texture of this eye gel as it's not too heavy to the point you can feel it sitting under your eye and it does provide you will a teeny bit of coverage due to the peachy shade. In a way, I'd say this product is somewhat in between a skincare and make-up product so it would be great to pair up with another eye-gel and/or concealer for perfect under-eye flawlessness. 
I've only been using this a week so cannot say for definite whether it has improved the appearance of my eyes but I am really enjoying using this and it really does refresh my eyes. This eye gel will be priced at, £22.50 which is cheaper than Benefit Cosmetics 'It's Potent' eye-cream and I think is quite reasonable for a decent high-end branded eye solution. The cooling sensation provided by the tip I find also lasts so long afterwards too which is a bonus!
Will you be trying Benefit Cosmetics, 'Puff Off'?
