There are a huge range of gift sets from Benefit & other brands that will make great gifts (Christmas) for a beauty lover or beginner. I shall be doing a series of posts on different gift ideas for the festive season ! Even if you aren’t celebrating Christmas it’s still a great idea to buy these products as they are cheaper and some are also limited edition too. Reviews & swatches off all the gift sets will also be included.

Benefit gift sets are here all year round, I also have the Bronze by Champions (post here) I think this is a great way to buy a range of products from Benefit that you may want to try out, also these gift sets are very travel friendly. I think it’s very handy having this box because it’s all of the things (mainly) that you need to complete an eye look.

How cute is the packaging ?! Its like a little house with a roof, it has a metal case which is very sturdy so your products won’t break, however it will get dented !

This gift set includes the cult beauty product They’re Real Mascara Mini, Stay don’t Stray primer mini & 4 neutral eyeshadows. I really like the eyeshadow combo because I think it’s great for an everyday eye look, it is also good for beginners as there aren’t too many products. It includes Tips & Tricks, I personally don’t find these helpful as I think it’s more a step by step guide on how to apply the products rather than tricks ?! However this is great for someone new to the whole eyeshadow thang!

All of these are longwear powder eyeshadows. The eyeshadow on the far left ‘Kiss Me,I’m Tipsy’ I found to be very chalky & not very pigmented. The rest of the eyeshadows are very pigmented and creamy ! I absolutely love ‘Call My Buff’ it’s super uber pigmented, I feel that some white/cream eyeshadows don’t show up on my olive skin tone, but this is perfect ladies !! All these eyeshadows are shimmer eyeshadow, I’m a shimmer eyeshadow kinda girl so I love that ! Although for a crease colour I would have preferred a matte brown shade, in this set.

The primer is also good, it prevents the shadows from creasing as well as making the eyeshadows look a lot more pigmented. The longevity of these eyeshadows with and without primer is amazing ! The primer has a little lipgloss type of applicator, the colour is only available in light/medium it works well for my skin tone and blends easily, but may be too light for people with darker skin tones ! But remember guys the eyeshadow goes on top of the primer, so it doesn’t really matter to me personally !

The best thing about it is the price, worth £36.81 so it’s a bargain for the price !

Benefit Goodies A Go-Go – £19.50

Also available at Feel Unique, John Lewis & Boots!
