Build your own Benefit

I recently received  an email from Benefit with a great idea I had never seen before. Build your own benefit kit, it was on special offer at the time pick 3 items from the following categories, Complexion, Cheeks and finally Eyes then you choose one free gift and to finish it comes in a little make-up bag all for £62.00. 

For complexion the choice was things like Dr Feelgood,  POREfessional and "that gal" I decided to give the Hello flawless oxygen wow Foundation a go in the 'believe in me' Ivory. I love it, it's quite a light coverage but it can be built up, I felt like it gave me a really natural glow.
For Cheeks some of the choices were Fine-one-one, high beam, Hervana and What's up, my choice was Hoola bronzer. This is a product I have wanted to try out for ages, and it didn't disappoint, a little goes a long way and I love the colour it gives me.
The next choice was Eyes, for this you have Bad Lash Mascara, Fakeup, and Boi-ing but my choice was They're Real mascara as you may know from this post this is my favourite Mascara and I had nearly run out so this was a obvious choice.
Then is the choice for your free gift, new Ceaseless cream shadow, new Longwear powder shadow, new Ultra plush lip gloss, Full-finish lipstick, and Silky-finish lipstick. I decided on the Ceaseless cream shadow in the shade Polished Copper. it is really lovely long wear and perfect on its own or used as a base.
if that wasn't enough Benefit threw in a couple of free samples too.
 Added up the individual products would set you back £84.00 not including the make-up bag that's a brilliant saving don't ya think?

  1. Sounds a really good buy, especially with you testing them out!

  2. Nice present with products you choose, we love Benefit!

  3. This would make an awesome gift for someone this Christmas. Building your own little set is so much better than having to buy ready-made sets where there might be products that you won't ever use.

  4. Great idea if you want to be introduced to Benefit!
    Still pricey tho!
