Ask Santa for These…Benefit Holiday 2012

Hands up if you’re done your holiday shopping? (My hands are not up). I see a big, and I mean Pretty Woman, BIG, shopping expedition in my future.

I’m shopping mainly for my husband who I find hard to buy for, and some stocking stuffers for my kids. Now, if I had to buy for girlfriend or my sister, I would look to getting them one of these Limited Edition sets/kits from Benefit. Yes, I have them in my hands and I could technically give it away. But call me Scrooge, I can’t let go and am keeping these for myself! ;-)

Take a look and you’ll understand why:

Benefit Crescent Row Limited Edition Fragrance Set

I’m a big fan of the Crescent Row fragrances so when I saw these I got a bit giddy. These are teeny bottles (.34 oz), perfect for travel. Choose from Laugh with Me Lee Lee (a woody floral), My Place or Yours Gina (woody oriental), Ring My Bella (a fruity floral), and See & Be Seen Sasha (a captivating floral).

I can’t pick a favourite. My one issue is that they don’t come with a spritzer or spray — which I find awkward to apply. But I’ll get over it cause they make me smell nice ;-)

Benefit High Flyin’ Lip Glosses Set ($28)

Who doesn’t love a good lipgloss? This kit features mini versions of Benefit’s Ultra Plush Glosses: Coralista (sheer coral), Dallas (dusty rose), Bella Bamba (bright watermelon), Hoola (a shimmering nude); Sugarbomb (pinky nude); and Dandelion (a soft pink). It’s a lipgloss-hoarder  collector’s dream :-) I’m a big fan of the blushes by the same name, so these are right up my alley, and they make my lips look luscious.

She’s So Jetset ($40)

This nine-piece set for eyes, cheeks and lips will make a neutrals-loving girl’s heart skip a beat. The bright orange, pink and yellow package houses a mini POREfessional primer, four powder eyeshadows, a First-Class Face Powder, a miniature Life on the A List lipgloss, a tiny tube of They’re Real Mascara, a dual-ended applicator and a small cheek brush.

Sexy Little Stowaways ($36)

Love to travel or know someone who does? Or know someone who loves ‘mini’ things like me? If yes, this set is worth a look. The set includes: Bella Bamba,’That Gal’ Brightening Face Primer, Sun Beam, Cha Cha Tint, Ooh La Lift, Stay Don’t Stray, It’s Potent! Eye Cream, BADgal Lash Mascara, The POREfessional and Hoola. Such a great idea!

So over to you…are you done shopping or just getting started?

    Great post M! The Benefit holiday sets are always the best ones, got the Crescent Row pack for a friend and she LOVES it. Each scent is really different but all so wearable. I snapped up the Pretty Committee set (Bella Bamba, Stay Don’t Stray, High Beam, Eye Bright) for myself last week and love it so far. Any more holiday reccos?
