It is the time of the year again when we are going to see more holiday kits/gift sets online and in malls. Oh my, I cannot believe I’m writing this down. It is Christmas soon and that means 2017 will be over before we know it. Time flies! But anyway, enough of my forward thinking and let me share a secret instead. Do you know that I always look forward for holiday gift sets of different brands? Aside from the gorgeous packaging, they usually package their best sellers allowing you to save a few hundreds or even thousands. One of my favorite brands that ALWAYS come up with great deals and really cute gift sets is Benefit Cosmetics. They never ever disappoint, I tell you! Recently, I got a sneak peek of Benefit Cosmetics Holiday 2017 gift sets and their upcoming products. Hold on because they’re quite a lot and I’m not sure if it is a good thing but I want them all!


Benefit Foolproof Eyebrow Powder

PHP 1,500

Brow Zings has been my favorite ever since it was launched. It’s my go-to product when I only have 20 seconds to do my brows. This is why I got surprised when they released the Benefit Foolproof Eyebrow Powder. They made brow application even easier! Woot! Each compact comes in 2 shades – light and dark shade to mimic the gradual look of natural brows. Apply the lighter shade from the start of your brow to the arch and the darker shade on the outer half – exactly how the palette is shaped! It’s perfect for those who want soft, natural brows. What makes it even more unique is the blending sponge and spoolie brush that comes with it. Benefit Foolproof Eyebrow Powder comes in 3 shades.


Benefit Colorfull Brows

PHP 2,100

Want an upgrade from powder but can’t commit to full sized products? Benefit Colorfull Brows has a wand and 3 deluxe sized products – 3D Brow Tones (one of my fave Benefit brow products since it is like “highlights” on your brow, making it look more natural), Precisely My Brow Pencil, and BrowVo! Conditioning Primer.


Benefit PunchPop Liquid Lip Color

PHP 1,100

Lip gloss is back! But wait, don’t skip this part if you hate glosses. You might just change your mind when you see Benefit PunchPop Liquid Lip Color. Why? Well, it is really pigmented like a pop of juicy color!


Benefit They’re Real! Red On!

I’m not a red lippie kind of girl. If I wear one, I’m very choosy with the shade since not all suit me. So just imagine when I saw Benefit They’re Real! Red On! – in one bright-looking shade of red. In my mind, I don’t think I can pull that off. It’s housed in a mini compact so you can easily slip it in your back pocket and retouch anytime, anywhere.


But then out of peer pressure, we all tried it on. Surprise! It really is a universal shade! We have different skin tones yet the red shade looks gorgeous. By the way, I applied it like a lip stain — concentrating on the center of the lips and it looks equally pretty.


Benefit Hoola Boddess Cream

Benefit Hoola Boddess Cream is a body moisturizing cream. I initially thought it would not look good on my skin tone. I judged by its packaging once again, my dear friends! LOL! It is not a bronzer. It just gives the skin a healthy glow.


Benefit Boing Erase Case

PHP 1,600

Because we can’t get enough of concealers, here’s a kit for all our concealing needs. Benefit Boing Erase Case comes in Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer, Boi-ing Brightening Concealer, Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer, and Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer. To know the use of each, you can read my previous post here –


And now, are you ready for the holiday sets?

First is the cute tin cans – Lombard Street and Head Over Hills.


Lombard Street


Head Over Hills


They also have several sets in a pouch! My particular favorite is this with GALifornia.


Make your lashes holiday-ready with these… Well, these are just some. There are more choices in stores.


Last but not least…

Benefit The Great BrowNanza!

This is indeed the blockbuster brow set. All of Benefit brow products are in here – in full size! The total cost of all the products in this set is around PHP 7,000 +, but guess how much is this?! Only PHP 3,000+! Yup, that’s not a typo! It’s half the price of its total cost. Woot!



So, which one is your favorite? Honestly, I can’t choose just one. As I said earlier, I want them all! LOL!
