Best Of Benefit Set


Benefit is a brand I've dabbled with for several years now, and one I'm incredibly fond of. From their mascaras to their highlighters, they always manage to get it spot on with their make up. So from unwrapping this delightful 'Best Of' set on Christmas morning I was a very happy little lady indeed. As the name suggests, the kit contains seven of the brands most known and loved products, and is a total must have for those looking to try from Benefit whilst expanding their makeup stash. 

They're Real happens to be one of my favourite mascaras for packing a serious punch in the volume and length department, so I was thrilled to see a little mini tube in the set. I'd also been very eager to try out the partnering Push Up Liner for quite some time due to it's heavily mixed reviews. From giving the mini a good test drive (I haven't had a proper chance just yet!) I'll also be able to develop an opinion before splurging on a full size - result! POREfessional is also something I've previously used and loved, and although primer isn't something I tend to reach for everyday I'm glad to have it back in my collection for those special occasions. High Beam happens to be the most beautiful, radiance-boosting highlighter  and something I've enjoyed using for yonks so again, a great addition to the set. 


As for the rest of the products inside, they were all (excitably) new to me. Benetint is one of the first make up items I remember obsessing over in Boots, so I have no idea why it's taken me so long to try it out?! I can safely say I now completely understand the hype. A subtle, sheer flush of colour, it just adds a little extra somethin' somethin' to finished make up. Hoola is closely competing with my well loved Nars Laguna bronzer, and works magically as a contour shade. Finally Boi-ing is a high-coverage, long-lasting concealer for both blemishes and dark circles. Personally, I find it way too cakey for under the eyes, but on the likes of spots it works a charm at covering for the entire day. 


The Best of Benefit is a great little set and something I would highly recommend picking up if you're after dipping your toes into the best the brand has to offer. At just £24.50 (and exclusive to Boots stores) it's brilliant value and the perfect treat for all beaut lovin' peeps. My personal favourites from the set have to be the They're Real Mascara and Hoola Bronzer, so if you're more looking to try one or two products, these two are the ones I'm most likely to repurchase once finishing them up. Unfortunately I can't seem to find a link online for the set however it's definitely worth heading into bigger Boots stores to try snap one up for yourself!

  1. This is such a gorgeous little gift! I've actually never tried anything from Benefit so this would be a really good place to start by buying some of the best items they sell! :)

  2. Oh I snapped this up in Boots! I adore the sample sizes, as they're excellent to carry in my bag ready to sort out my face in work! haha. I've kept this in the box though, as the packaging is so nice and pretty :)
