What it is: Benefit's holiday collections are filled with cult classics and new favourites. Housed in collectable tins, boxes or an advent calendar (love!), these limited-edition sets are sure to be a hit under the Christmas tree.
Beauty bonus: The two gift sets we got — the Girl-a-Rama and Gals Just Wanna Have Fun kits — offered a complete face, except for foundation. Eyes, lips and cheeks are covered!
Beauty bummer: The eye shadows and blushes are not removable from the tins, making them a little difficult to grab for on-the-go use.
Overall: We love holiday sets! 'Tis the season to pick up staple brands and make new discoveries — while getting a great discount and product variety in one pack. And this season's sets from Benefit are no exception.
Our one caveat with these two tins? We personally always pick up sets with full-sized products, so if your shopping list includes a Benefit babe (ehem, like us!), skip the minis and grab a full-sized product. But if you're buying for a Benefit newbie, these are great introductions to the brand.
Would recommend? Yes! They're a perfect gift for a new or continuing Benefit fan — especially thanks to the super cute tins!
Price: Girl-a-Rama, $45; Gals Just Wanna Have Fun, $58.
