I was getting my eyebrows done at the Benefit Brow Bar almost two weeks ago when I stumbled across the Benefit limited edition make up sets released for Christmas. I promise you that I had no intention of picking anything up, I really didn't, but the Pretty Parfait Makeup Set caught my eye I knew I had to take it home with me. To be honest, I could've easily bought a few of the sets so I did show some self control.
Anyway, the Pretty Parfait Makeup Set contains three full sized products (Gimme Brow in light/medium, They're Real Mascara and Stay Don't Stray) and one deluxe sized sample (a tube of The POREfessional which is about one third of their full size). This kit retails for $75.00 in Australia and, according to my calculations, buying everything individually would set you back just over $133.00. Bargain, don't you think?
Benefit's They're Real! mascara is a product I've always liked. I've never bought it for myself as I've managed to accumulate a fair few deluxe sample sizes of it but it's nice to own a full size. I have wanted to try Stay, Don't Stray for quite some time and, I must say, so far I am really liking it as both an eyeshadow and under eye concealer primer. I use Gimme Brow quite a lot but I have always used the darker shade. The girl who did my brows in store tried this on me and it didn't look horrible so I was going to give it a go but my Mum expressed an interest in it so I've passed it on. Finally, The POREfessional is a long time love of mine so I am so glad to have a deluxe sample, even though I am half way through a pro sized tube and I have a back up. I can pack it for all the trips I don't go on, can't I?
