As the holidays approach, I get so excited for all the various holiday palettes and limited-edition sets that are currently popping up at beauty counters near you. Benefit holiday sets are a perfect way to have everything you need in one place. I also think it is a great way to try sample different products. One tip: keep a kit in your desk drawer at work to instantly touch yourself up before going out at night or for quick touch ups. I love the packaging for this holiday season where the products are displayed inside a decorative metal tin that can easily be reused once you are done.
Nudes are in and for just $25 you can pick up the luv it up! makeup kit (colors above and at top) featuring three deluxe eye shadows (call my buff, nude swings, thanks a latte), a creaseless cream shadow and a dandelion ultra plush nude lip gloss (which has been living now in my handbag). At this price, pick up this little gem as a stocking stuffer and don't forget to get one for yourself too! View the PDF featuring instructions on how to apply.
If you're looking for a little more in a kit, the groovy kind-a love kit ($36) features everything for eyes, cheeks, and face. The kit includes the POREfessional (I use this on and around my nose), they're real mascara, benetint, dandelion and gimme fever cheek powder duo, 4 shade deluxe eyeshadow palette with double ended sponge applicator. The eyeshadows are wonderfully pigmented and buildable. I use these nude colors the most and I can never get enough! View the PDF featuring instructions on how to apply.
