If there is one brand that I’m always excited for when it comes to holiday sets, it’s Benefit. And, just like in past years, they have a sweet assortment of options to choose from.
Many of their sets this year come housed in a tin reminiscent of those little Christmas villages you see that always pop up around the holiday times. But, in true Benefit fashion, they are sweet shop themed. I received three of the sets, all of which are great value for what you receive.
My favourite set, Pretty Parfait houses some of my Benefit faves, including The POREfessional (deluxe sample), They’re Real! mascara (full size), Stay Don’t Stray eyeshadow primer in light/medium (full size) and Gimme Brow in light/medium (full size). So you get three full-size products for $46, which would cost you normally $98. Total score.
If you would rather a set which is more “makeup you can see” (I find Pretty Parfait to be more undercover makeup – necessities you don’t see, aside from the mascara), then Sugarglam Fairies is a great set. You get a full size of They’re Real! mascara, full size of The POREfessional, full size of Hoola bronzer (one of my faves), and a medium size of their iconic Benetint.
This set retails for $54, with a $114 value. Although the contents in both Sugarglam Fairies and Pretty Parfait are worth the money, lets not forget about the cute tins. Store your Benefit goodies, or just keep them as a decoration on your dresser.
Finally, for those who love lip products, 3 Scoops O’ Sexy is right up your alley. This particular gift is great because you can gift it as is, or split up its contents and voila! three gifts in one. For C$50 (at a value of $101) you get three of Benefit’s new balms and three medium sizes of their corresponding tints. Included is Lollibalm & Lollitint, Posie Balm & Posie Tint, and Benebalm & Benetint. I haven’t tried their balms yet, but I have all three of these tints and are great for that “just out of the cold”/”I’m blushing” look. Best of all, each set it individually packaged, so one for you, and two for me!
Benefit also has a number of other holiday sets available, including their uber-popluar advent calendar, and a cheek palette (what????). Make sure you check out both Sephora and Shoppers Drug Mart to see the sets yourself. They would make the sweetest gifts!
Is Benefit on your holiday list this year?
