Benefit makes going back to school something to look forward to. Everything a glam student needs to get through the reading, writing and arithmetic of life. Why not do it looking as fabulous as possible? Benefit‘s exclusive launch for August had me wanting to go back to school… beauty school that is.
The kits are a cliff notes for your makeup bag: all the essentials you need to make your life much easier, whether it be for a business trip, class or a night out on the town! I love all these kits, and best off all, they work on everyone. So none of you gals have to feel left out! There are four kits in total. The first being How To Look Your Best At Everything (30.00). This kit has everything you need to create a flawless face in a flash! It comes in three tones: Light, Medium and Deep. When you open your mini textbook you might see some cards open up. One of the great features of these kits are the tip sheets to create a flawless face.
Also, the mirror is just genius — no more fumbling in your bag for a mirror! One of the products this kit contains is The POREfessional ($30.00), a face primer to get those pesky pores in order; a generously-sized bottle of ‘Hello Flawless!’ Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation ($34.00), along with two different shades of Boi-ing Concealer ($20.00) for all of your face’s little issues — there is no way your face won’t be perfectly matched. And finally, you need to set your lovely face with ‘Hello Flawless!’ SPF 15 ($34.00) powder in Me, Vain? to set everything. No more lugging brushes either. Benefit has thought of that too and made sure they included a brush so you can do your face on the go! I love how Benefit pays attention to every detail; I am a person who does forget things as I’m dashing out of my house, so I’m glad they do the thinking for me!
Next are the lip and cheek kits (each 28.00). Again, Benefit has taken the liberty of making my life easier once again! There are three of these kits in total: Go TropiCORAL, Sugarlicious (my personal fav) and Feelin’ Dandy. I had the opportunity to play with the first two listed. And these ROCK! Go TropiCORAL is great for getting that warm and sunny complexion! These kits are a gem. When you open your little treasure trove, you will see that these kits also contain little cards of tips so you can achieve the perfect application! Included in this set are the cult items: Cha Cha Tint ($29.00) and High Beam ($26.00); I love how they refer to High Beam as a “Supermodel in a Bottle.” Next up is the sunny CORALista ($28.00) face powder to enhance the Cha Cha Tint. This kit is pure tropical heaven! And finally, to shine up your lips, Ultra Plush Lipgloss ($16.00) in CORALista! This kit also contains the brush to apply CORALista face powder.
My personal favorite, and I guarantee this kit will sell out: the Sugarlicious Lip and Cheek Kit. This kit contains the original cult classic Benetint ($29.00), along with High Beam to create flushed, gorgeous cheeks! Next to the ultra-mini sizes of these classics is a brush to apply Sugarbomb ($28.00) face powder to lock your look in place. And, to complete your warmly flushed face, the best-seller: Ultra Plush Lipgloss in Sugarbomb.
As I mentioned earlier, all of these kits are located EXCLUSIVELY at Sephora stores nationwide. All of the kits were created by Benefit and Sephora pros. A nice relationship, putting a new spin on makeup kits by offering a unique collection of all-in-one kits to address clients’ most frequent beauty needs. How can you go wrong with that?
