benefit holiday blush palette

Hello guys!

I've been waiting to post this for quite a while now...ever since i bought this I've been wanting to show you all!  I just wanted to wait a while so I'd have time to try it out and form a proper opinion first :) 

I picked up this Benefit "Real Cheeky Party" from their Holiday 2015 Collection and it is INCREDIBLE.  The set contains;

  • they’re real! mascara deluxe sample | 0.36 g Net wt. 0.1 oz.
  • they’re real! push-up liner deluxe sample | 3.0 g Net wt. 0.1 oz.
  • dandelion medium | 4.0 g Net wt. 0.14 oz.
  • watt’s up! small | 1.5 g Net wt. 0.05 oz.
  • sugarbomb medium | 6.0 g Net wt. 0.21 oz.
  • hoola medium | 5.0 g Net wt. 0.17 oz.
  • CORALista medium | 5.0 g Net wt. 0.17 oz.
  • rockateur medium | 5.0 g Net wt. 0.17 oz.

I've always wanted to try out the Benefit Boxed Blushes and Hoola Bronzer, but for $36 each...I could never quite justify the purchase.  So when I saw this set, I absolutely could not resist!  Because for just over the price of one Boxed Blush, you get to try out 5!!!! (as well as a mascara, eyeliner, and highlight!)

The set is sold at Sephora for $50 (and claims to be valued at $116), but I was able to grab mine at 20% off during the VIB Rouge sale event.  It was worth every penny :) Now here are my thoughts on the product!

 Personally, I love the packaging!  It reminds me of a watermelon and is so colourful and happy.  It's a very sturdy and well made metal tin which is much appreciated :)  The only part I don't love is that the actual products are held in a fairly flimsy cardboard insert...which can be slightly annoying.

As for the actual products inside (the most important part!), they are SUCH great quality.  I've been using almost nothing else on my cheeks since I bought this...I'm so in love!  My current favourite blush from the set is "sugarbomb", but every single one is beautiful!

They're all very long lasting, bendable, and very soft powders :)  I have no complaints and would definitely recommend picking up this set before it's sold out!

It would make such an adorable Christmas gift and I'm sure lots of girls out there would be all over this set, am I right ladies!? ;)

Hope you guys enjoyed this post :)  I have plenty more makeup posts planned, so let me know if you're interested in seeing them!  And maybe comment down below which of the products from this set you think would be your favourite.

Love you girls,
