Glamourous Gifts Wrapped Up In Love by Benefit Cosmetics | Holiday 2013 | Beauty News

October 18, 2013
Countdown to love!
Good things come in all sizes, and Benefit proves just that.  This holiday season, Benefit is releasing a bunch of Glamourous Gifts Sets for you to choose from.  There are mini products sets, palettes and even an advent calendar.  From the on-the-go girl to the gloss-girl, you are bound to find something for yourself and your loved ones.

All of these are available now at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada.  All but the Let’s make lovely! set is also available at Benefit Cosmetics (US & UK), Murale in Canada, Ulta in USA as well.  And Countdown to love! is available at Sephora too.

Let's make lovely!
Groovy kind-a love!
Love at first shine!
Little love potions!

Let’s make lovely! (CA $27.00 / GB £19.00): a must-haves kit for your purse, including 4 minis of:
  • They're Real Mascara

Countdown to love! (CA $79.00 / US $68.00 / GB £60.00): this advent calendar includes 24 surprise beauty treats that are sweeter than chocolate.  If you're going to get one for yourself and you would like some surprises, I suggest you don't look at the following list:
  • "that gal"
  • the POREfessional
  • high beam
  • sun beam
  • Lip & cheek tint mini: benetint, chachatint, posietint
  • ultra plush lip gloss in CORALista, sugarbomb, dandelion, A-lister

  • BADgal lash mascara
  • stay don't stray in light/medium
  • BADgal liner waterproof
  • it's potent eye cream
  • total moisture facial cream
  • ooh la lift
  • girl meets pearl

  • horseshoe charm bracelet
  • star charm necklace
  • ribbon bow barrette
Since I do own a lot of Benefit product, I only have one wish list item, the Love at First Shine mini gloss set!  But if you're buying for someone who is just starting out with makeup or with Benefit, I think Let’s make lovely! and Groovy Kind of Love! are great sets too.  Either way all of these make great holiday gifts and stocking stuffer.  And it's definitely healthier to countdown with a beauty advent calendar than chocolate.

Until next time,

  1. these sets look so great! i think ULTA has some other ones too but i don't think they ship to canada. i still haven't completely jumped into the Benefits camp but have enjoyed the Watt's Up bday sample from sephora.

  2. I saw cute one at Shoppers that had full size of porefessional, high beam and they're real mascara and a mini of the dandelion gloss for only $50.

  3. I suggested to start with minis first to see if you like it. My first benefit product was also a kit with minis :)

  4. I saw those too and they should be available at Sephora... if I don't have some of them I would've got them :/

  5. These sets are amazing ! Beautifull
