benefit she's so jet set: £29.50*benefit holiday 2012
I went to a Benefit event a few weeks ago and I won the "She's so Jet Set" kit when they held a little Christmas quiz. Perfect for travel or the holiday season She's so Jet Set an affordable and useable little kit. I love the theme of the product and the name, I often pass Benefit off as gimmicky but this set contains everything you could need for a variety of looks. The set includes a mini Porefessional, 4 Eyshadows, a cheek colour, a mini lipgloss in "Life on the A List", a mini They're Real mascara and a mini blush and eyeshadow applicator.
The eyeshadows are a wearable and pigmented neutral foursome that can be used in a variety of ways. They are all safe, wearable colours which apply smoothly and compliment most eye colours. I really like the glow the face powder gives the face, It's very subtle but looks very fresh and brightening. One half of the blush is perfect for highlighting and the second part is a mid toned coral which looks lovely on the apples of the cheeks. The lipgloss is in the shade "Life on the A List" which is a sheer peacy nude colour, It reminds me a bit of Nars Turkish Delight. I'm a recent convert to They're Real mascara, it has to be one of my favourites of all time mascaras I've tried. Nothing has given my lashes length and volume like this baby! A full review is coming as soon as I get it up! I've also been a huge fan of Benefit's the Porefessional for a long, long time and I really do love it. It is perfect for prepping the skin for makeup and evening out the skin.
She's so Jet set would make the perfect last minuite gift idea as you can purchase it at anywhere Benefit is sold. You get a variety of products and they are all good quality. You get to try out some of Benefit's best sellers too, which are handy to test out before you commit to full sizes. While I do like the packaging it's not the most easily transportable kit despite what it is name might suggest as it is on the bulky side. I always think the Benefit cardboard packaging is annoying as it gets ruined so quickly.
