Benefit Christmas Kits


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Life is crazy busy right now with no sign of slowing down until January (good busy, but busy) and so I wanted to take this chance (Darcy is asleep and I'm sat on my bed going through our recent photos) to showcase some of Benefit's most charming box sets and individual items that they have rather aptly brought out in time for Christmas.

I'm holding back from doing a full review on anything because I plan on doing Vlogmas on my second channel (Sprinkle of Chatter) and know these will be featured a lot in those, as well as the spectacular Benefit Christmas advent calendar that I was kindly gifted (oh me on my!). 

I have been a sucker for Benefit products for well over 6 years now and have indulged in many a beautifully packaged foundation, highlighter or mascara before now. I used to gleefully look forward to the moment the Benefit counters would have their new product booklets out, take it to my desk (as you can tell, I worked hard at my office) and make little lists of what I wanted Father Christmas to bring me. 

It's not just the beauty products themselves that I love about this brand, it's the fun and frivolity that comes with them. They have that little extra something and I'm happy to pay a little more to have that. 

All these pieces would make great stand alone gifts (the perfume set for example) or sweet stocking stuffers (oh hey there lipsticks I'm looking at you) for friends and family. 

If you want to really tease yourself, have a look at Benefit's Website and try not to swoon. It's impossible! If you get the chance, visit one of the counters or flagship stores, they're girl heaven. 

What do you think? Would you buy makeup as gifts? Do you have a favourite Benefit product?

Also, are you enjoying Hannah's lovely contribution to Sprinkle of Glitter? I know I am! 


Toodlepip!

  11. I agree, something about the Benefit packaging just makes you want to buy it - and then it usually is really good, too, so it feels worth it :)

  13. I received my first Benefit gift set last year for Christmas actually, and I love it! It was the set called 'how to look the best in everything' or something along those lines, and I have found it an essential, go to set

    It hadn't previously crossed my mind to ask for another Benefit set, but this post is giving me many ideas...

  14. You can't beat a good box set at Crimbo can you?? The only thing I worry about though..is what ever set I buy for someone as a present is always half price or less on Boxing Day!! (

  24. I love Benefit products, the packages alone are so pretty! I only have a makeup kit from them because it was a gift, but I wouldn't mind getting more for this Christmas, maybe I'll put it on my list and hope someone will offer me :)

  25. The packaging alone makes me want to buy everything at the benefit counter. I love their oxygen wow foundation for the summer, but in the winter even the palest shade is way to dark for me! Fingers crossed Santa puts one of these sets in my stocking...

  49. Great to see some of the palettes that are available from Benefit. Thanks for writing the post :) The only question that I have to ask is why were these not marked with an asterisk*? It states in your sponsor policy that all items gifted for free will have a * on them yet each one of these palettes were free but you haven't stated that. I love your blog and your youtube channel but I feel that this is quite misleading to your younger readers in particular.

    I hope you will take my comments on board. They aren't intended negatively at all. xxx

  81. I am in love with Benefit products, but they hurt my wallet so much. I just got a sample for the POREfessional and I might end up buying the full-size if I fall in love with it (c'mon, who am i kidding? i know I'm gonna love it). Also, that Rockateur blush looks stunning! The wish list keeps getting longer and longer...

    Speaking of wish lists...I just posted my Christmas Wishlist, along with some gift ideas for the lovely ladies in your life (mom, sister, friends, etc.). I would love if you guys could check it out and tell me YOUR must-have items this Holiday season.

  83. Love the Christmas kits, I LOVE the 'How to look good at everything kit" I'm just about to post a review of it, I think it is the perfect gift for someone starting to like make up, or a great purchase as it can do your whole face in one little kit!

  94. Stunning packaging it makes you look impressive when giving a simple makeup gift! The packaging just sucks me in every time, helps that the product is amazing to I suppose haha :):)
    If anyone is from Australia quick tip, Benifit prices are ridiculous in the department stores like David Jones but the actual Benefit website ship to Australia and even if you have to pay for shipping (which you dont if your order is over $125 most of the time still works out alot cheaper, and they often have shipping promotions to I just tend to watch out for them :):)
