Great Holiday Sets and Palettes!!

Well ladies, it’s that time of year again!!! If you’re anything like me- getting out of the mall empty handed is pretty impossible! Hopefully I can save ya some money and frustration (and your significant other!) by telling you my thoughts and experience with any of the Holiday products, sets, palettes, etc. these companies can be pretty clever by just RE packaging standard products in prettier bows and calling it holiday! OR sometimes putting a few of the not so good sellers in a pretty box 😉 and hoping the husbands just grab and go. Either way- we all love a deal, especially when it comes to cosmetics since they are rarely on sale and never have coupons! It’s safe to say that every cosmetic line that has holiday sets- has them out already (and some may already be sold out!). I am posting some pictures and descriptions of what it is, what’s in it and IF it’s even a good deal! This is by NO means all the good ones out there but just a few I will start with in case you are making a list for anyone ;-). Feel free to add any awesome deals you’ve come across too!

BENEFIT COSMETICS – High Flyin’ Glosses
Available at Sephora. $26

20121111-224004.jpg
I think you have all figured out that I just LOVE Benefit 🙂 they were never really about “color cosmetics” but they have done extremely well with all the ones they’ve come up with over the years. These glosses are pretty close to the full size ones and the best part is- they all have a corresponding box o powder! Definitely worth the $26 if you are a certified makeup junkie, a makeup virgin that only wears gloss, maybe a work Secret Santa (they’ve got ya covered for a non specific skin tone) and perfect for teens!

So this is just one suggestion for now since my phone will not cooperate with me! I have quite a few more that I will share this week and all the way up until Christmas. So stay tuned because there will most likely be way more than my usual 2-3 posts per week. Thanks for reading 🙂

Benefit’s High Brow

This little gem, also known as a “Fake It” in the Benefit world is pretty much an instant eyelift!  The soft, matte linen-pink pencil looks beautiful on all skin tones while lifting and enhancing the entire eye area.  Can be worn alone or as the finishing touch of a fully made up eye!

Hoola Bronzer – Benefit

Ohhh Hoola Bronzer… this has been my BFF for years! This super soft and silky powder is like Barbados in a Box!  This is by far my favorite bronzer and one of the only ones on the market with absolutely NO shimmer, glitter or orange to make ya look crazy 😉  It’s also great for contouring a wide range of skin tones- use an angled blush brush and blend into hairline, pop some of Hoola’s pretty mauve sister (same cute box, named “Dallas”) on the cheekbones and you’re ready to go!

**Just a quick note about Benefit Cosmetics…They have some amazing colors that all come in those cute “Box-O-Powders” with a small brush.  Dallas is actually one of my top 5 cheek colors, and it CAN take the place of your bronzer if you need it too.  If you want to brighten up your face or have a sallow look try their Dandelion all over face powder (pale pink, can also be concentrated on cheeks for a flushed look).  If you aren’t a pink kind of gal, try using the box called Georgia Peach to totally warm up for face and give some color!

Don’t be afraid to try new colors and/or techniques 🙂 These powders are (generally the same everywhere) $28 and last about a year!
