As you may have seen in my July favourites post, I paid a sneaky visit to the Duty Free shop on my way home from holiday a few weeks ago, and I just couldn't say no to this pretty gift set from the Benefit counter!
Really, I did this the wrong way around and should have purchased this on my outgoing trip because it contains some ideal basics for when you're on your travels. The set contains a deluxe Cha Cha Tint mini (4ml), a deluxe High Beam mini (4ml), Coralista blush (3g) together with a mini blush brush that fans will recognise from their standard powder boxes, and a Coralista lip gloss (6.5ml). On the lid there is a tips and tricks guide for the products which conceals a decent sized mirror.
I first used High Beam a few years ago and wasn't a fan but I'm now a firm advocate of liquid highlighters and High Beam is amazing for giving a beautiful glow to the skin. I've not used a liquid blush before so I was really keen to try Cha Cha Tint. I won't lie, I am still trying to get the hang of it but the colour is super pretty when applied right. Less is most definitely more thanks to the amazing pigmentation. I've used Coralista before, and ended up selling it. Over the past few weeks I've been having a full on love affair with it again and I've used it every single day. It gives a lovely natural peachy flush to my cheeks which I absolutely adore. The one product I wasn't too keen on is the Coralista lip gloss. I had high hopes but its just not for me. It leans too much towards orange andd the colour payoff isn't as great as I'd hoped. Its definitely glossy but just not what I'd hoped it would be. I just need to find the perfect lippie to pair it with. Any suggestions ladies?
Overall, I think this is a great set and I'm really glad I bought it. Go Tropicoral retails at £25.50 in the UK although I managed to snap it up for just under £22.00.
