We LOVE an awards season, glammed up celebs, gorgeous dresses and boujee acceptance speeches. Beauty Award season is NO different, and at Benefit we’ve had Beauty Awards rolling in thick and fast from our fabulous retailers: Selfridges, Debenhams, Cult Beauty and Birchbox. I’m here to give you the low-down of the top Benefit award-winning products of 2019.
In August, our best-selling Hoola bronzer won Selfridges ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ to beauty. As Hoola turns 20 next year, (omg I suddenly feel SO OLD), it seems like an appropriate award to win going into its 20th year.
Selfridges says, “If you’ve never heard or come across Benefit’s Hoola Bronzing Powder before, where have you been? Award-winning, with good reason, this finely milled bronzer imparts your complexion with instant sun-kissed radiance. What’s more, the slender brush applicator makes it the perfect product for contouring your cheekbones, nose and jawline. What are you waiting for? Get you glow on.”

So for the Birchbox beauty awards this summer, Benefit won across not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 categories for 2019. Nominated and voted for by Birchboxers, we were the winners for brows, mascaras, base and bronze amongst 15 other products. ERM, *hair flick* we knew we were good but this is next level exciting.
And the winner is… BADgal BANG!
“Best. Mascara. Ever. It stays on really well! Doesn’t flake and withstands being rained on! I love, love, love this mascara!”
And the winner is… Hoola
“I’ve used this for 15 years. It’s the best bronzing powder on the market.”
And the winner is… POREfessional Primer
“A wonderful product which glides on to the skin beautifully leaving it feeling completely smooth, the perfect base for make-up. Make-up application is 100% easier and the product makes such a huge difference to my look!”
And the winner is… Gimme Brow+
“OMG, for a total novice when it comes to brows, this product is brilliant. The brush does all the work for you, just small simple strokes and ta-dah amazing brows. I would highly recommend this to anyone from novice to expert.”

Debenhams asked their Beauty Community to vote for their make up faves this June, (hint we won big). Debenhams even had a fancy awards ceremony for their community, including guest presenter Tess Daley (what a babe), who took a visit to our ‘Next Stop Great Brows’ pop-up at the awards.

Must-have mascara: BADgal BANG! mascara
It’s the ground-breaking areo-particles that give us lashes that are out of this world.
“Game changer! I’ve got really short lashes and this one lengthens, separates and holds all day long.”
First class for cheeks: Hoola
This cult-classic bronzer offers a natural sun-kissed glow from its soft matte shade.
“I’m in love with this product! It’s a beautiful soft brown that can easily build up for a bronzed look.”
