The Benefit of beauty gift sets this Christmas

Anyone else suddenly feeling the Christmas shopping fear? Glad I am not alone.
If I can pass on one festive tip to you all it is don’t get drunk at your office party on the free wine, fall asleep in the toilet and cause a mass hunt around the building for you. Happened to a friend…
Another tip, from experience, is to head to the Benefit counter for goodies galore for your make-up loving pals.
Last year, I bought 6 of my friends different sets from Benefit’s festive range and they were all delighted. I wasn’t gifted them, I splashed my cash and I was so glad I did as they were amazing value and looked beautiful.
Thankfully, the range has expanded this year and there are so many gorgeous gift sets featuring Benefit favourites; you are spoiled for choice.
Here are a few of my favourites: For someone special- The Holiday Tins:£39.50

The packaging looks like a tiered cake and the goodies inside are just as sweet as the icing style box they come in.
The pink Gimme Some Sugar package features classic full-sized favourites such as Roller Lash, Porefessional, Hoola bronzer and High Beam highlighter – basically all the essentials that live in my makeup bag. I get palpitations when my Hoola starts to run low.
There’s also the beautiful blue Bright Delights which features a full size moisturiser, BROWVO conditioning primer, It’s Potent! Eye Cream and Instant Comeback facial serum.
The perfect post-party pampering pack.
If you head along to Debenhams, you could snap up the Sweeten Up brows, lashes and face kit for £39.50, which features a full-sized Bad Gal Bang (no other mascara compares), Gimme Brow and Porefessional Primer and a mini Hoola.
For £29.50, you could snap up the adorable Homemade Hotness box which features loads of Benefit favourites in mini.
For your gal pals: Tint Faves and Craves and Cake Pops – £25.50
A good price for treating your friends, or yourself, to mini versions of the likes of the legendary Benetint and Posietint – to be honest – small versions of these will last an AGE. My Benetint has lasted me all year and I live in the stuff.
The Cake Pops set combines four of the most popular Punch Pop glosses. Thou shall get a snog this Hogmanay…
For your Secret Santa/stocking fillers:
In super cute packaging, dainty enough to hang on any Christmas tree; benefit have also released mini versions of many of their most popular products, including Gogo Tint, Roller Lash and the Dandelion Brightening powder.
Ranging from 10.50 to £12.50, these make for the perfect stocking fillers or for the lucky lady you get in your Secret Santa.
With a veritable selection box of festive goodies at Benefit, I know what will be going on my Christmas list. Dear Santa, I’ve been a very good girl…
