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!
