Over the many, many years of using Benefit Cosmetics, I have found that I have come to love several of their products so much, that they are always on my repurchase list. I am an avid fan of Precisely, My Brow. My contour relies on the Hoola Contour Stick and I have fallen head over heels for the Gold Rush blusher that not only gives the perfect pink nectar flush but smells incredible as well.
I received a surprise gift from Harvey Nichols which contained two of the brand new Benefit Cosmetics Makeup Sets. Two sets that are not only perfect for me but also contain some of my favourite products from the range. A collection of four sets are available in Harvey Nichols; The Beachlorette set, Snow Doll set, Hippie Go Lucky set and Parisian Pin Up set, of which I have the latter two. Priced at £28.50, each custom set contains four deluxe minis each wrapped up in a limited edition mini makeup pouch. They would make such perfect presents for birthdays and Christmases, or just as a present to yourself .
From the two sets, I am most drawn to the Parisian Pin Up, with the envision of being a sleek, and chic Parisian styled princess with glowing skin, perfect brows and thick full lashes. Lashes courtesy of Bad Gal Bang, the latest mascara release from Benefit. A mascara that has had its fair share of critics but I quite like it. It does exaggerate everything in length and volume which is everything I look for in a mascara.
I have never seen the deluxe size Ka-Brow before, and I am so happy to have one in my possession. It’s one of my favourite brow products from Benefit, and it lasts all day. As a highlighter addict, you cannot go wrong with High Beam; a wonderful pink champagne shade that enhances every skin tone. The set finishes with a mini Gold Rush blush which retails for £12.50 alone. I have totally fallen for Gold Rush and since I purchased this on holiday, I have used it daily. The warm pink nectar blush is so flattering that it looks like a flush of happiness on your cheeks.
The Hippie Go Lucky set focuses on unleashing your inner flower power. Long luscious lashes, flawless smooth skin, and a lit from within glow. The mascara is the cult classic They’re Real, which has gained the title of being one of the UK’s best selling mascaras, known for false lash effect formulation. The POREfessional is another of my holy grail products and I love the smooth finish it gives. The soft focus highlight of Watt’s Up works perfectly alongside the soft focus finish of The POREfessional, and a natural makeup look is a dream with these two products. Finally, my blush of last summer, the mini Galifornia blush which not only smells like summer in a box, but has a wonderful golden coral pink shade that suits every skin tone.
I adore these mini products from the sets. Not only are they a great way to try some of Benefit’s top rated products but they come in so handy to keep in your handbag. As someone who is really trying to keep my handbag makeup bag to a minimum, I can’t tell you how pleased I am to be able to have all my products that I need with me, but without taking up all the space. You can get your Benefit sets from Harvey Nichols for £28.50.This post may contain PR samples that have been sent to me for consideration for review however all my opinions will be my own.
