Boots Exclusive – Benefit Sha-La-Lovely Christmas Set

Finally an exclusive that’s available on this side of the water!

The kit contains

  • Boi-ing concealer in 02
  • Creaseless cream shadow
  • Three powder eye shadows
  • Badgal Lash Mini Mascara
  • Eye Bright
  • Concealer Brush
  • Double Ended eyeshadow brush
  • Full lesson.

I like the idea of having so many products in one box. I could pop this in my handbag with a lipgloss and save myself lugging around a half tonne of products.

I bought the Benefit Realness of Concealness kit a few years ago. Although I loved it, I found that I used up the boing concealer within a few weeks. I would love if the concealer pan in Benefit palettes were slightly bigger since most people would use a concealer up much faster than eyebright.

The set costs €36 / £25 – definitely not a drugstore price but if you like Benefit products or wanted a little introduction to the brand then this could be a good option for you. I have to say that I’m not a big fan of Badgal mascara. I’m also not sure I like the idea of eyebright  in pan form. The pencil is so easy to use and is one of my favourite products but in a pan? Surely that will be too much work.

It’s also a Boots exclusive. Nothing like the word ‘exclusive’ to start the queues forming although it’s worth thinking about whether you need everything in the box before you commit. I always consider the price against the value of the products and how much use I could get out of them. Then I ask myself if there is any other product(s) I would prefer to spend that money on. If I still want it at this stage then it’s a good buy. For now, I think I will pass on this one. The other Benefit sets I was talking about before appeal to me more.

Have you ever bought a Benefit set?
