Benefit Cosmetics - The Bronze of Champions

I absolutely love the kits Benefit Cosmetics put together as they contain a great selection of their products in miniature form for a great price. Before Christmas I saw 3 new kits Benefit Cosmetics were bringing out in America and I've been desperate for them to be released in the UK. These kits finally landed in the UK last week so I was a very happy girly! The kit that caught my eye is The Bronze of Champions as it contains several products I've wanted to try for a while but didn't want to splash out on the full sizes.

I love the packaging of this kit as it looks like a book, so cute! Also it's pretty sturdy so it would be great for carrying in your bag and travelling with. You don't need to worry about the lid coming open and the products spilling out everywhere either as it has a nifty magnetic catch. 

This kit costs £26.50 and contains 6 products which works out at £4.41 each. When you see what these are, I think you'll agree this is a very fair price indeed!

  • Creaseless Cream Shadow in Bikini-tini (3.2g)
  • Longwear Powder Shadow in Thanks a Latte (1.2g)
  • Hoola Bronzer (3g)
  • Watt's Up! Highlighter (2.5g)
  • They're Real Mascara (3g)
  • Hoola Lipgloss (6.5ml)

I'm not massively into bronzing due to my super pale skin but I think these shades will work so well on all skin tones. The eyeshadow colours are very neutral, the cream is like a champagne colour and the powder is a cool toned, light metallic brown colour. The highlighter is a peachy gold shade, the bronzer isn't orange at all and has a lovely matte finish. The lipgloss is a beautiful nude colour with a fine shimmer running through it. It smells so nice too!

I recently bought a copy of Elle magazine with a free They're Real mascara in so it's great to have another one of those as it's a fab mascara! 

I've photographed some swatches of the products on my hand so you can get an idea of the colours. I haven't actually tried these on my face yet but I know I'm going to love them. Hopefully I'll get round to posting a photo of the full look at some point!

L-R: Powder Shadow in Thanks a Latte, Cream Shadow in Bikini-tini, Watts Up!, Hoola bronzer, Hoola lipgloss

There's a handy booklet inside the kit to let you know the best way to apply the products which I think is a nice touch.

If you want to read more about this kit or the other two new ones (Primping with the Stars and Do the Bright Thing) check out the Benefit Cosmetics website here. I actually bought mine from Debenhams as they had 10% off and I had £5.00 of beauty points to spend so I got a real bargain! The 10% off deal ends tonight so you'll need to be quick if you want to purchase at that price :)

What do you think of this kit? Are you going to purchase this or one of the other kits?
