At the latest Benefit launch school was officially back in session – with a quirky, brilliant and colourful Benefit twist of course! These miniature sets won’t be on counter until September but we just couldn’t wait to share them with you.
I was shown to my own school desk that was buckling under the weight of Benefit’s new miniature ranges. A tutorial from the lovely Benefit team taught us how to use the products. Although, the ‘Tips and Tricks’ guide inside each fun and colourfully embellished box gave us everything we needed to remake the look at home.
The How to Look the Best at Everything £24.50 set comes in three shades, to match a range of skin tones. I tested the products in ‘class’ and found that the creamy foundation adapted to my skin tone instantly. The miniature set includes Benefit’s no.1 selling primer The Pore fessional, cult product ‘boi-ing’ concealer (in two shades), the new (and EBT fave) Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation and Hello Flawless pressed powder.
To complete the look Benefit has created three miniature lip and cheek sets, Go Tropicoral, Sugarlicious and Feelin’ Dandy £24.50 each. Each set has one of the famous Lip & Cheek stains, the legendary High Beam illuminator, a classic powder blusher and an Ultra Plush lip gloss.
If you haven’t tried the gloss and stain before then we can vouch that the colours are super wearable, smooth and shiny without being sticky. The illuminator and blush defines cheek bones with a touch shimmer and an injection of colour.
The final touch – a slick of the UK’s No.1 selling Mascara, Benefit’s They’re Real. Buy yours after the 18th of August and receive a They’re Real Deluxe Mini in celebration of the mascaras first birthday for the same price of £18.50.
I know this is forward thinking but at EBT we can see a lot of stockings being filled with these miniature gems.
