Friends with Benefits: 2021 holiday gifts from Benefit Cosmetics

When it comes to beauty holiday collections, one of the best value ones are by Benefit Cosmetics.

I always say in general that if you need to pick up skincare or beauty, then now is the time to get it and stock up since you can usually find amazing deals on some of your favourite items (and get some bonus goodies in the process).  I am always blown away by what Benefit offers this time of the year as I find their sets retail for at least half or more than they are valued at.

If new makeup is on your wish list, then I think you’ll really love what Benefit has in store for your this season.  Below are just three sets from their holiday collection, giving you the tip of the iceberg of what’s in store this season…

Holiday Cutie Beauty Makeup Bestsellers Value Set

Holiday Cutie Beauty Makeup Bestsellers Value Set

If you have someone on your list who has always wanted to try Benefit and want to give them a rounded out set of some of their bestselling products, then they will love the Holiday Cutie Beauty Makeup Bestsellers Value Set (C$54, valued at $126).

This set, which comes housed in a beautiful tin, features two full-size products and a two deluxe size items of some of the brand’s bestsellers.

Included in here is a full size of the Hoola Matte Bronzer, a full size of the They’re Real Magnet Mascara, a mini of the POREfessional Hydrating Primer in either Light, Medius, or Deep, and a mini of the Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel in shades 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, or 5 (there’s only one shade in the set).

This kit comes with some of the brand’s most iconic items and I love how it’s a great starter pack for those who have never tried Benefit, or use Benefit and love these products.  Also, the value of this set is incredible as it is less than half of what it is valued at.

Although there are only two full sized items in here, the minis will last a long time as well, and will really allow you to use the products to see if you like them and if they work for you and your skin/brows.

Benefit The More the Merrier advent calendar

The More the Merrier advent calendar

We all love a good advent calendar and this one from Benefit is one of the best makeup ones I’ve seen this year.

This beauty advent calendar comes in a re-giftable box and contains 12 containers filled with deluxe-sized and fun-sized Benefit goodies.  Although it’s a not a traditional 24-day calendar, the contents of it more than make up for the lack of days and anyone who you gift this to will surely love it and be excited to open it every day.

Included in the calendar are the following:

  • Gimme Brow+ brow volumizing fiber gel in Shade 3 (deluxe size)
  • Precisely, My Brow Pencil in shade 3 (deluxe)
  • 24-HR Brow Setter brow shaping gel (fun size)
  • The POREfessional pore primer (deluxe)
  • The POREfessional Hydrate Primer (deluxe)
  • Hoola matte bronzer (fun size)
  • Dandelion blush (fun size)
  • Roller Liner Eyeliner (deluxe)
  • BADgal Bang! mascara (fun size)
  • Roller Lash mascara (fun size)
  • They’re Real! mascara (fun size)
  • They’re Real! Magnet mascara (fun size)

This advent calendar retails for C$88 and is valued at $190. If you can still find it, I would grab it since the contents in here are so good and really allow you to try out some of the brand’s best-selling products.

Benefit They're Real! Magnet Extreme Lengthening Mascara

Lashes All The Way

If you have been wanting to try out Benefit’s newest mascara, They’re Real! Magnet Extreme Lengthening Mascara, then now is your chance!

The Lashes All The Way (C$40, valued at $56) set comes with a full size of the They’re Real! Magnet Extreme Lengthening Mascara, as well as a mini size for travel.

The set comes housed in a festive stocking tin and it a great deal for this mascara. On its own, a full size of this mascara retails for C$36, so for four dollars more, you can get the deluxe size as well.

If you haven’t tried it yet, this mascara has a magnetically-enriched formula that works with the wand’s magnetic core to extend lashes up to 40 per cent longer for a lifted and lengthened effect.

Benefit Cosmetics holiday items


Benefit has a few more holiday sets and items available for the festive season and like I said, I always find their sets to be some of the best value ones out there.  If you have some favourite Benefit items, I would look to see if those items are available in a gift set and then pick it up since you’re probably only spending a little bit more money and getting way more items for almost the same price.
