Milk It!, Raincheck?, Blingo!, Pause For Applause (over primer)

Milk It! is a shimmery, opaque white. Great payoff and not TOO stark white.

Raincheck? is a smoky eggplant with very slight shimmer. Really nice shade, especially for blue eyes.

Blingo! is an opaque, intense silver metallic.

Pause For Applause is a light/medium lilac/pink with slight shimmer. The least opaque shade here but not too bad.

Bikini-Tini is a creamy peachy shade. On the more pale and subtle side.

Holy Smokes! is a deep smoky grey with hints of brown.

Call My Buff, Kiss Me, I’m Tipsy, Gilt-y Pleasure, It’s Complicated (over primer)

Call My Buff is a buff/beige with very slight shimmer. Great highlight shade if you don’t like them too shimmery and obvious.

Kiss Me, I’m Tipsy is a deep, saturated reddish/brown with tiny gold glitter specks. Great shade!

Gilt-y Pleasure is a somewhat pale warm gold metallic.

It’s Complicated is a peachy/gold/pink shimmer that is a little bit duochrome-ish. Very pretty in person!

Birthday Suit, My Two Cents

Birthday Suit is a creamy pale taupe/nude shade.

My Two Cents is a warm medium gold shade.

Overall: I really like these kits and am so happy these are just for eyes. I am a little burned out on their sets with mini versions of so many eye/lip/face products I already own. These are my favorite kits from them in awhile!

The Sexiest Nudes Ever Kit is really nice if you like cool-tones and the Most Glamorous Nudes Ever is great for those who like warmer shades. I love both kits and am lucky I can wear everything from both!

Availability: These will be a Sephora exclusive and available in January.

Pricing: $30.00 (powder eyeshadows are 0.04 oz each and creaseless creams are 0.11 oz each).

What do you think about these kits? Anything here you will be thinking about picking up come January?


Note: Benefit is not cruelty free (they sell in China).

    The Most Glamorous Nudes Ever set looks very nice! I also like that it’s an eyes-only set, I like keeping eye/face/lip products separate.

    • December 11, 2012

      I generally do also for whatever reason.

  • December 11, 2012

    These are cute little kits, but such bulky packaging!

      True it is a bit bulky, so maybe not great for taking with you.

  • December 11, 2012

    I’d DEFINITELY love one of these! I really like Benefit cream shadows, and I think it’s a great idea to pack some in. It’s really good value too; just what I look for in a set!

      I agree pretty great price, plus I was impressed with the payoff on nearly all these shadows.

  • December 11, 2012

    I want to like these but I prefer mattes (or even just 1 matte crease color) and both sets have zero of them. :/

    • December 11, 2012

      Awwww yeah I understand that.

  • December 11, 2012

    These are gorgeous sets! I can’t wait to check them out =)

    • December 11, 2012

      :) glad you like them!

  • December 11, 2012

    Love the colors in Most Glamorous Nudes Ever, and I like that both cream and powder shades as included!

      Me too, I really like their cream shadows compared to some other brands that aren’t so great sometimes.

  • December 11, 2012

    I will have to keep my eye out for these. I love Benefit’s eye kits.

    Looks really pretty! 😀

    The packaging is horrible, that print… But the eyeshadows are gorgeous!

  • December 11, 2012

    Sexiest Nudes Ever is definitely going on my wishlist! Thanks for swatching these, Kelli.

    thanks for the preview! Can’t wait- just discovered their cream shadows and would love some tiny sized ones for my purse. definitely on my wishlist! I hope santa brings me a sephora giftcard!

  • December 11, 2012

    Nooooo!! Benefit is one of my favorite brands and I am surprised to hear they aren’t cruelty free! Those palettes do look amazing though!

  • December 11, 2012

    “Note: Benefit is not cruelty free (they sell in China).”

    Wow… Kelly. I’ve been a silent reader for quite a while now, and I know that being cruelty free is important to you (and for me too) and that China has a major problem with animal testing, so I do respect the disclaimer.

    On the other hand, as someone who is from China by birth, the way you phrased that is really off-putting to me. I think being PC is overrated too, but the way that disclaimer is worded it made it a seem to me a little like you think people in China don’t deserve to get cosmetics — or at least mid/high-end cosmetics available to the west? I’m not attributing intentions to your words, I’m just saying that despite the fact that it is a really crappy situation, there is another perspective to the story as well.

    I think this is a point where we part, so I will stop reading here. Thanks for all the reviews and swatches and I wish you the best of luck. :)

      I have been putting that on the bottom of my site for 6+ months on many posts and mean absolutely no disrespect whatsoever by it. I just found out they sell in China so I added “they sell in China” next to that. It’s just a simple sentence and all it means is what I said it means. Nothing more. Sorry you took it personally but if you feel the need to stop reading my post of it that’s fine.

  • December 12, 2012

    omg it looks so beautiful
    personally i like the first pallet better but both look awesome! great xmas gift :)

  • December 14, 2012

    I think both palettes are gorgeous. I definitely would like to pick these up when they come out. I agree with the bulkiness, but they’re so pretty and I like of the colors in each palette. Usually with palettes, I don’t like every color and there’s always a few that remain unused, but I think with these each color would get used by me.

  • December 27, 2012

    Just picked it up today at Sephora. I got the pallete with the sexiest nudes ever.

  • December 31, 2012

    Could you do an update of your Cruelty Free Brands List? I noticed that in just a little over a year, 60% of the list now tests on animals (or some were listed in error). One can’t really trust the PETA list though, so doing research on your own or checking BUAV is important! Can anyone trust an organization that murders 96% of the animals they “save”? I think not…
    I was shocked to go to Benefit’s website and see that they admit they test on animals. I would hope that more people get a spine and refuse to buy their makeup until they gain some morals. The more people that look the other way…

  • January 25, 2013

    I keep going back and forth on these. I really want them but don’t really “need” them, you know? They are so pretty and its such a good price!
