If you follow the news of Benefit Cosmetics you probably know that they now have new Full Finish Lipsticks. They are already available in the US and each is $18 and here is how they are described:
“Every gals go-to lipstick for full, rich color. From subtle pops of pink to dramatically dark burgundy, our full-finish lipstick will give you the luscious lips you’ve been longing for. With 20 glamorous shades to choose from, you’ll want them all!”
The shades are:
- fame game, dusty pink
- pillow talk, hot pink
- shy, ballet slipper
- wanna?, royal raspberry
- rumor, rose quartz
- finders keepers, warm cinnabar
- mod squad, shell pink
- slow zone, tropical coral
- saucy, sparkling tangerine
- sassy-frass, boysenberry
Today I am wearing a beautiful lip gloss by Benefit which is called “I’m with the Band” and is described as golden pink shimmer. It’s a very beautiful warm shade as you can see from the photo.
The gloss is quite moisturizing and stays on for several hours, it doesn’t come off completely when you drink or eat (or at least this is how it works for me). It has an amazing fruit scent, smells like peach, mmm.
And what are you wearing on your lips today?
Last year my amazing friends from the US helped me with my Sephora order and I hope to get some help this year.
This will be a beauty present from myself for myself for Christmas. Last year I was carried away a bit so this year I’ve limited the sum I can spend to $300 (ok, $350 top)!
So this is what I want to get. Five of these are LE value sets so I really hope that I will be able to get them.
So after browsing Sephora for hours(!!!) I’ve chosen 4 sets by Laura Mercier, 1 by Benefit and 1 by Urban Decay.
Here they are:
Laura’s Secrets Volume 1 – Flawless Lips ($140 Value), $59
- 4 x 0.05 oz Lip Stains in Mocha, Shy Pink, Sugar Violet, and Mulberry
- 0.159 oz Lip Glacй in Pink Diamond
- 0.12 oz Lip Balm SPF 15
- 0.039 oz Lip Pencil in Chestnut
- Double-Ended Lip Colour Brush
Bonne Mine – Healthy Glow For Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette ($110 Value), $48
This ultra-sheer, blendable palette wakes up the skin and gives it an immediate, healthy glow. Customize your look with bronzer, cheek color, and glow for a natural “no makeup” radiance. Inside, there are tabs that fan out to display Laura’s secrets on how to best use the formulas to create standout results.
- 0.36 oz Bronzer Veil
- 2 x 0.14 oz Cheek Veil
- 2 x 0.14 oz Glow Veil
Eye Book ($174 Value), $45

Yesterday when I was browsing Boots.com I’ve noticed that they have an exclusive Benefit’s set which is called Sha La Lovely Christmas Set.
This is what they say:
“Finally a portable eye primping kit that has it all. Benefit Sha La Lovely Christmas Set is only available at Boots and Boots.com so get it while you can!
Packed with everything you need for getting glam on the go! Conceal, contour, line, brighten and create smoky eyes & sexy lashes. Lose 5 pounds from your makeup bag now, even a total primpcess can travel light! Complete with a step by step primping lesson.”
Benefit- Sha La Lovely Christmas Set contains:
Boi-ing 02 – creaseless cream shadow – 3 powder shadows – contour accent and liner – Badgal Lash Mini Mascara – Eye Bright – Concealer Brush – Double Ended eyeshadow brush – complete primping lesson.
The price is £25 and I think it’s a great deal!
Do you remember the fantastic Legally Bronze set by Benefit which was available at American Sephora for $35 (the value is $105)! So you save $70, amazing, right?! So guess what?! It’s back!!!
Last time when it was available a lovely friend from America was kind enough to get it for me. I’ve already reviewed Hoola Bronzer. I also plan to write a post about my fave liquid highlighters and High Beam is one of them. As for mascara, I’ve lost it somehow so there will be no review about it. But today I will tell you about the Gilded eye pencil from the set.
It’s a bronzy gold eye pencil which I personally use all over the lid. I’d even describe this colour as a bronzy melon which is beautiful especially if you have tan!
This is how is looks like
