Benefit Sugarlicious lip & cheek kit
Sugarlicious, the lip & cheek kit from Benefit Cosmetics* - £24.50
One thing that Benefit Cosmetics do particularly well are their boxed beauty kits, always so charmingly packaged you just can't help but be drawn in by the selection of mini products and cute designs. Earlier this month, Benefit released three new colour kits all themed around one of their cult boxed powders - Sugarbomb, Dandelion and Coralista. The kits, Sugarlicious, Feelin' Dandy and Go Tropicoral respectively, all comprise of a powder and the matching Ultra-Plush lipgloss along with a mini High Beam and a lip & cheek tint.
I have mentioned before that I am a big fan of Benefit's boxed blushers and their high/moon/sun beam products are little bottles of joy giving you an instant radiance and a sunshine complexion. The lip & cheek tints you will find in these kits, BeneTint, Cha Cha Tint or PosieTint, are great for a dewy flush and the Ultra-Plush lip glosses are set to compliment the corresponding boxed powder with a slick of shimmering colour on the lips. I just wish they hadn't put a High Beam in each kit, but mixed it up and included a Sun Beam and Moon Beam too. Each kit also comes with a detachable tips and tricks booklet which gives you a step by step guide to each product and handy hints to get the best from your chosen palette.
I think whether you love a soft pink flush, a punch of coral or a shimmery nude finish to your makeup, there is a kit for you. These lip & cheek kits from Benefit are such a great way to try out four of their cult products, all for a pretty reasonable price. They are great for on-the-go makeup and I can imagine they will be the ideal stocking filler come Christmas time! Coralista is one of my all time favourite blushers so I am definitely tempted by the Go Tropicoral kit.
Which one takes your fancy?
