Benefit It's a Love Fest


In December my mum and I went shopping and we walked past a benefit counter in Myers and decided to stop and check out what they had. I had my eye on the "It's a Love Fest" holiday gift and my mum spontaneously bought it for me which was so lovely of her to do and I'm so grateful. As I mentioned this tin was apart of Benefit's holiday collection so I'm not sure if they are still selling them but I just wanted to share this with you.

First of all, I just want to say how cute is the tin?! It has a pop art print on it and I actually love that art style and the whole design of benefit being vintage chic! The tin contains 1 sample size and 3 full size products. I have seen other reviews on this gift pack and a lot of people got different product to what I did so I'm a little confused about that but hey I'm still happy with the products that were in my tin. 

The sample size product is a They're Real! mascara which I am happy with because I really like this product. I already had a full size mascara at home which I used a couple of times and I gave it to my mum so it just wasn't sitting neglected in my drawer. 

One full size products is the Dandelion Ultra Plus lipgloss. It's a soft pink colour and I have yet to try this lip product out and I hope it's not sticky like most lipglosses in tubes are.

A full size product that I was most excited about was the Watts Up highlighter. I have never owned a highlighter before and I love this one because it's a gold toned highlighter instead of a pearly white shade. On one end is the highlighter crayon and I believe the other end is a blending sponge which is handy but I would rather use a clean finger.

The last product I received in the tin was a Dandelion Blush which compliments the matching lipgloss {cute touch benefit, very cute touch}. It goes on very sheer and you need to build the colour up but it's great for a subtle flushed look. I don't have a ballerina pink blush so I was pretty excited about this shade.

If the Benefit Holiday gift packs are similar this year, I definitely will buying them as gifts.

  7. I saw these in Myers but I didn't purchase them! After reading your post I am heavily regretting that decision, i've been wanting to try Watts Up for so long but I think I'll finish off high beam before I go to purchase it!

    1. I don't own high beam because I find the liquid texture really gross {just me?} for a highlighter and I have wanted the Watts Up highlighter for a long time and it was cheaper to get it in the tin!! :D Don't worry, they might have something wonderful this year!!

    2. Don't worry, I'm sure benefit will come up with something even more wonderful this year! :)
