How you doing? *In Wendy's voice* Don't mind me, I've been watching a lot of her lately. I trust we all are doing fine. In today's post, we will be reviewing the Beauty Essentials by Nsure(BEN) Beauty Mat. For the purpose of this review, we shall refer to Beauty Essentials by Nsure as BEN. Agreed? Okay that's fine, now lets move on.

BEN is a new indigenous brand run by the ever energetic and ebony beauty Makeup Artist cum Blogger Yemisi Seriki Dada. She is also the Owner of Nsure Beauty Studio in Lagos. The product line was launched sometime early this year and they have the beauty mat, tote bag and a pencil/brush pouch in their line.
I purchased the BEN Beauty Mat for myself at the last Lagos Make Up fair(LMUF) that held sometime around June this year. On getting to their stand, I had an issue with deciding which colour to pick as there were "sooooo" many colours available. I had picked turquoise which happens to be my favorite colour, when my friend came over and requested I drop it and pick the pink colour. Piiiinnkk???? She said yes, you deal with women and a lot of them love the colour, pink. Whew!!! After much persuasion, I gave in and got the pink shade of the BEN Beauty Mat.
The BEN Beauty Mat is rectangular but can be folded and tied into a cylindrical shape for easy carriage. Two thick and durable ribbons are fastened to one end of the beauty mat to aid the tying process. Inscribed on the same end of the mat is the BEN logo. The beauty mat is made of a durable material with glossy finish.

- Keeps you organized
- Keeps things sanitary
- Helps reduce theft
The BEN Beauty Mat in this case can serve as a "barricade". Once you have set up your work tools/ products on this mat, zip or lock your kit and keep this mat at your eye's reach while you work straight from the mat. Think of the Beauty Mat in this case as "Police Line Do Not Cross"....smiles *too many investigative movies* hahaha...I know.
The only downside to this accessory for me is that I own an average sized kit and the BEN Beauty Mat doesn't fit into it. I however don't see this as too much of an issue because I usually carry huge tote handbags and I manage to keep the mat by the side. I also believe that it will fit well in a Zuca Flyer(which I'm "eyeing" by the way) and other bigger rolling makeup kits.
WOULD I RECOMMEND?
Absolutely! BEN Beauty Mat is an indigenous and thoughtful beauty accessory that every professional makeup artist needs to own in their kit. What's more, the price is right and you may not need a replacement for a long period of time. I hear you can also request to have your business logo inscribed on the mat for you.
Do you own a BEN Beauty Mat or any of their products?
Kindly share your reviews, I would love to read from you.
Till my next post,
Stay Beautie-ful & Radiant,
