Spot the bargain!

Happy Sundays ladies!

I hope you're ok and looking forward to next week.

Have you spotted the bargin on the photo below already?

During the pre-xmas period I really wanted to get the Benefit trio called POWda WOWza.

This set is not actually new or it's not a release of any new product but Benefit always does this thing of pairing popular products in one little set for the Holiday season.


Firstly I liked the packaging. Just a light and flat square box ideal for travelling and then it was the fact that all these three are the most popular products by Benefit. They paired CORALista, hoola and bella bamba! Each of these are around £23 each but this little box was only £20.

I first spotted it in a Boots near work around early December and for some "strange" reason I never picked it up. I said to my self, do I really need 2 more blushes and 1 bronzer? NO, of course I don't. Also, I was in the mind set of buying stuff for other people rather than for myself so I forgot about it.



Then last week I had to pick up some essentials for the gym (shampoo, shower gel, etc) and I saw that the Benefit counter had all the Holiday items on sale! Bingo!

Yes, I picked it up and for only £13! BARGAIN! :)

The two blushes are quite scented. In a nice way I say it but it's quite strong. I never noticed the perfume from swatching the testers.

Yes, I like them- we all do and I think they are perfect for just throwing it in your bag and you get 3 products in one little square.

CORALista is what the name says- a pretty and flattering coral with a nice shimmer that will make you look gorgeous and glowy.

bella bamba is more on the pink side and it has that same natural shimmer that will make you look rosy.

As for hoola, yes I like it- it's just a mat bronzer but I wouldn't say it's my favourite bronzer however I understand why people rave about it.  

All in all I'm super happy with my purchase. It was a total bargain hard to ignore!

I'm pretty sure there are more of these hanging around so it you spot it get it.

Have a lovely week everyone!
