If you read my post earlier about my Benefit Haul (you can see it HERE), you will know I mentioned I purchased their Hello Flawless foundation, but at the time I had absolutely no idea what shade I would be, so I popped into Reading to the Benefit counter in House of Fraser. The assistant was super helpful and matched me to ‘Honey (I’m So Money)’ but whilst I was there, Benefit’s Christmas offerings caught my eye and I knew I couldn’t leave without picking one up.
After a lot of debating with myself I decided to get their Sweet Tintations gift set which includes;
> BENEBALM (Full Sized)
> LOLLIBALM (Full Sized)
> BENETINT (Medium – 4ml)
> LOLLITINT (Medium – 4ml)
I had really wanted to try both the tints and the balms from Benefit so this seemed like the perfect idea – especially since it was only £19.50! I think that’s excellent value for this set, especially as one of their balms retails for £14.50 alone!
Although both of the tints in this set aren’t full sized, they aren’t teeny sample sizes either. The full size of Benetint and Lollitint RRP at £24.50 for 12.5ml, and in this kit I received them both in 4ml bottles, which Benefit class as their ‘Medium’ size. Although I haven’t tried any of Benefit’s tint’s myself, I have been using MeMeMe’s offering for quite some time now and I have barely used any of the formula up, therefore I think these little sizes will be perfect for me and they won’t run out any time soon!
I have to admit, when purchasing this little set I really didn’t see myself loving the balms as much as I do. I have been using either Benebalm or Lollibalm pretty much every day since my purchase and I couldn’t be happier. Benebalm is my favourite, giving me a subtle red sheen to my lips, without being over the top. Both of the balms are super moisturising and feel amazing on my lips, and of course they have the most gorgeous packaging, as every Benefit item does.
I’m really happy with my purchase, and would definitely recommend this set to anyone who wants to try out these balms or tints as it’s such great value.
