Benefit Away We Glow Step By Step

I recently got this little kit for Christmas, which I have to say on the whole I absolutely love. It has some little gems in here which I definitely will be repurchasing full size.

Inside the kit you get 5 eye shadows, Highbeam and Sunbeam, Bad Gal Lash mascara, Life on the A List lipgloss. You also get a step by step booklet for eye, cheek and lip looks with this kit. Cool huh!

Benefit Eyeshadows
There are 5 eyeshadows:
Passion Pearl
Peachy Sheen
Terracotta Satin
Steamy Copper
Deep Bronze.

The eyeshadows are good, the only one I’m not keen on is terracotta satin, which I think personally is too warm for my skin tone and my blue eyes so makes them look quite red. However I like the rest of them. I doubt I would repurchase them again, the colour payoff is ok but not as good as say- in comparison to urban decay- which would probably be in the same price range as this.

Sunbeam is a golden bronze liquid highlighter. I already owned this before receiving the kit. I do like it as a highlighter but it’s not as good as highbeam in my opinion. However I think it would come into its own on already tanned, sunkissed skin (of which I don’t have). I won’t be repurchasing for the moment, because I have a glut of this stuff.

Highbeam is a satin pink liquid highlighterI’ve been wanting to try this for so long but I’ve not wanted to purchase it for fear of it not living up to expectations. However I love this little product, in fact it’s one of the ones I’ve nearly used up! I am definitely repurchasing this in the full size, it works so well with my skintone.

Bad Gal Lash Mascara
I’ve tried this mascara before and to be honest I can’t quite make up my mind on it. On the one hand I think it’s great and does make your lashes look great, however I’m not keen on the brush (especially for bottom lashes, it just smudges so much) and it doesn’t feel a very wet formula so I always think it’s dried up when it’s not. Verdict is still out on this guys, I don’t think I’d repurchase for the moment.

CORALista Blush
I’ve often heard good things about Benefit blushes, but always been put off by the price. However I have to say CORALista has definitely become my favourite blush. I wear it almost everyday and it compliments my skintone so well. I will definitely be repurchasing this.

Life on the A List Lipgloss
I do love the colour of this, as I am a fan of pale and nude glosses so it looks great as an everyday gloss. it goes on well and is nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to stickiness. It does have a lovely smell/taste though, quite tropical peachy smell which I love!

Overall I think it’s a great little kit. Yes it’s a little pricey but you do get to try out a fair few of their products without committing to purchasing full size. I’m not sure if it’s available anymore, but if you do see it about again I definitely recommend you purchase this.
