Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Gift Set


I'm always looking for good value for money when it comes to the Christmas gift sets, and boy this one is good! I was having a little look through Benefit's festive sets on a recent trip to Debenhams but was disappointed to see most sets had the They're Real mascara in, which was a real let down of a product for me, so I didn't fancy picking any up. That was until I saw the Cheeky Sweet Spot set....




I picked up my first Benefit box o'powder well over a year ago now, when the Rockateur blush was first launched. I loved the colour and the formulation, and had been desperate to try more ever since, especially the Hoola bronzer as everyone keeps raving about it. However, the high price point and the bulkiness of the packaging was putting me off a little. So, imagine my delight when I realised I could get my hands on five more powers to try, along with Rockateur, and a little pot of the Watts Up hightlighter (which is amazing by the way!) for just £29.50. Just to put that into perspective for you, the Rockateur blush on it's own set me back £23.50 and has the same amount of product as the one in this tin does!


I contemplated putting it on my Christmas list, but through fear of it being a sellout, I quickly grabbed one and ran to the tills - I wasn't prepared to miss out on this one! The packaging is so cute and festive. It comes in a sturdy tin shaped like a cottage, with lots of cute candy designs on the inside - this would be a great one to keep for storage once the powders have run out. The colours all look stunning, I'm very excited to try out Bella Bamba, and Sugarbomb looks really interesting.

If your a huge Benefit fan, or know someone who is, I'd really recommend picking this set up (or dropping some very subtle hints to your loved ones!). If you do happen to like the They're Real mascara, there's a lot of other Benefit sets out this year which I think you will enjoy, but in my opinion, this one tops them all!

Have you tried any of the Benefit box o'powders? Which one is your favourite?

  1. I didn't even know they did a set that was just all powders, and it's so affordable! I'm definitely going to be circling this and leaving hints around the house for various loved ones to find. I'm completely with you on They're Real, by the way, give me Bad Gal Lash any day.

  8. I can't believe it's time for Christmas cosmetics! First Lush, now this! I love the Coralista one. So natural and fresh, plus I find it a good dupe for NARS Orgasm :)
