Benefit has three new limited edition holiday collections out this season, all wrapped in super cute packages, of course!
First up is the She’s So Jetset Makeup Kit. This kit includes four eyeshadows, a mini POREfessional, a mini They’re Real! Mascara, a mini Life On The A List Lip Gloss, First-Class Face Powder with a brush and a dual-ended sponge applicator. It also has a mirror inside as well as a pull-out instruction guide.
Champagne Please, Gold Card, Pretty In Mink, Elegant Espresso (over primer)
Champagne Please is a pale shimmery champagne/pink.
Gold Card is a medium shimmery gold.
Pretty In Mink is a medium/deep taupe/brown shimmer.
Espresso is a deep shimmery brown.
These are all pretty darn soft and have a nice velvety feel to them. Good payoff over a primer, but nothing unique really in terms of the shades.
First-Class Face Powder, Life On The A List Lip Gloss, They’re Real! Mascara
First-Class Face Powder is a light peachy shade on the left and a medium peachy/coral on the right. Shimmery and light, these are both pretty.
Life On The A List Lip Gloss is a light, milky pink with slight sheen.
They’re Real! Mascara is a nice black and one of my go-to mascaras lately.
Next up is the High Flyin’ Glosses kit. This kit features six mini Ultra Plush Lip Glosses. All of these have corresponding face powders as well (sold separately).
CORALista, Dallas, Bella Bamba, Hoola, Sugarbomb, Dandelion
CORALista is a bright coral/tangerine shade.
Dallas is a medium dusty rose.
Bella Bamba is a bright watermelon red shade.
Hoola is a shimmery gold.
Sugarbomb is a shimmery pink/nude shade and my favorite one.
Dandelion is a light shimmery pink.
These glosses feel very comfortable and slick on the lips. No stickiness and they’re pretty shiny & glossy. And they all have that nice fruity scent!
Finally we have the Crescent Row kit. This set includes four mini eau de toilette’s in four scents:
- Laugh With Me LeeLee – Feminine woody floral
- My Place Or Your Gina – Sexy woody oriental
- Ring My Bella – Seductive fruity floral
- See & Be Seen Sasha – Daring Floral (first time in a mini bottle)
My favorites are See & Be Seen Sasha and Ring My Bella.
Pricing: She’s So Jetset ($36), High Flyin’ Glosses ($26), Crescent Row ($36).
Anyone on your list getting these? Or perhaps you are getting them for yourself? 😉
Note: Not 100% sure if Benefit is cruelty free or not, they have an elusive sounding statement.
