For my birthday the one thing I was really lusting after was this gorgeous little set from Benefit. I've used their cosmetics for years and am completely sold on the packaging alone - and yes the products too of course!
This set is fantastic as it basically has all the little miniatures you need so it's perfect to put in your handbag and touch up your make up while you're out. Usually I have a whole make up bag filled with all sorts of bits and pieces and I hardly ever use it all while I'm out so having this compact is ideal for me.
The blush is Coralista which I use every day and absolutely love! I fell in love with the 5 eye shadow shades which go from light to dark so it's great to have in your handbag to go from a day to night look.
I don't really use the Bad Gal Mascara as it doesn't give great results like my Hyperlash from Smashbox but it's great to have a miniature so I can give it another go and use to touch up my lashes during the day. Benefit lip glosses are great and this one in "life on the A list" is a pretty sheer pink which I wear in the day at the moment.
I've used Highbeam for a while now so I was quite happy to have a teeny sample of the Sunbeam - I hate buying the full sized version only to find I don't like it or it doesn't suit me!
The colours in this set really compliment each other but I'm gutted Benefit don't do all the eye shadows separately from this set as I'd definitely get the lot of them!
I've used this shadows and lip glosses so far but is it wrong that I don't want to use this and ruin the cuteness of set?? Yeah I know, totally weird but I'm a packaging junkie so seeing this in all it's glory is part of the high I get from new make up! I will go and see someone about that. ha ha.
