Hello everyone! Today I thought I'd show you a cheeky little duty-free purchase I picked up recently. If I'm ever in Benefit, I always gravitate towards these mini 'gift' sets. I love being able to try so many products at once and they're always really good value for money. I spotted 'Sugarlicious' and thought the bronze/neutral shades would be a good one for post-holiday skin. I've actually never owned any of these products on their own, so I was excited to try all of them. The set includes Benetint, High Beam, Sugarbomb, a mini brush and a Sugarbomb lip gloss. Not bad for £25.50!
Benetint has been on my wishlist for ages - in fact, I can't believe it's taken me so long to try it! At first, I tried it on my lips and wasn't overly impressed with the colour pay-off. I think it'd take quite a lot of build-up for any real noticeable colour. However, I really love this as a cheek stain. It creates a really natural, rosy glow that would be the perfect barely-there cheek colour to wear with a bold lipstick.
High Beam highlighter is one of Benefit's most well known products. It's an easily to apply, shimmery champagne liquid highlighter. A little goes along way with this and you only need a tiny amount to create a natural-looking highlight. The set also includes Sugarbomb which is a mix-toned blush that works as a highlighter too. I've been using this over Benetint on my cheeks and together they create a lovely natural, glowing complexion.
Lastly, the set includes the Sugarbomb Lip Gloss which is a warm nude gloss with very subtle shimmer. The gloss is really smooth, non-sticky and looks lovely over any nude or neutral toned lipstick or on it's own. It's a squeezy tube and easy to apply without a mirror too - bonus!
The sets comes with a 'Tips and Tricks' booklet which shows the best way to use the products together. This recommends Benetint on the cheeks, Sugarbomb on top, High Beam on the cheek bones and Sugarbomb gloss on the lips. Here's a pic of that look below - although I wish I could pick up the shimmer better on camera!
This is a favourite for me at the moment and sits alongside my other fav, World Famous Neutrals kit, on my dressing table - I'm Benefit mad just now! Have any of you tried this? Which set should I try next?
