Benefit It's A Love Fest

Benefit Cosmetics It's A Love FestHey Lovelies,
Last year I was incredibly disorganised and bought all my Christmas presents in December, which left me completely skint and not really able to go out and enjoy the festive season. So this year, I've decided to space my Christmas present buying out over a few months in a bid to have some spare cash to spend on myself in December. One of the first Christmas presents I bought was for my mum. As I work for Benefit, I decided to treat her to our 2 most iconic and best selling products: Porefessional and They're Real. Rather than buy her the 2 products seperatly though, I got her the It's A Love Fest gift set. This set not only works out better value for money but it's also so cute! Don't you just love the tin the products come in? Like most mothers, my mum does have a weird obsession with collecting tins to put random things in, so I thought this one would make a nice addition to her collection.
Well, enough rambling, now onto It's a Love Fest. This retails for £39.50, but the actual value of it is £56.00. This works out at a 25% saving which really is a great deal! As I'm giving this to my mum for Christmas, I'm afraid I can't swatch any of the products for you, but working  on a Benefit counter means I have tried them all so I can tell you a little bit more about them.
Benefit Cosmetics It's A Love Fest
Benefit They're Real Mascara (Full Size)
This is the UK's best selling mascara which already speaks for itself. It comes in the colour black and adds amazing length and volume to your lashes. As the formula is oil free and has no fibres in it, They're Real will stay on throughout the day and not flake off or clump the way some mascaras can. It's water resistant (but not waterproof) and has a plastic wand with different length bristles that helps you get your long and short lashes. The end of the mascara wand has a little ball on it, so you can also use it vertically to seperate, lift and curl your lashes. The little ball is also perfect for doing your bottom lashes! 
Benefit Porefessional (Full size 22ml)
This is the number one selling primer in the UK and I can easily see why. Not only does is minimise the appearance of fine lines and pores, but it also contains Vitamin E which acts as an antioxidant and protects the skin against environmental damage. I use this on our customers at the Benefit counter and it really does help the rest of the make up go on a lot smoother. Benefit Porefessional is oil free and has a mattifying effect on the skin. It contains silicone which absorbs excess oils and makes your skin feel incredibly silky and smooth. You can either wear it underneath your make up to make it last longer and look more flawless, or you can wear it on its own for a more natural yet polished look.
Benefit Coralista Lip Gloss (Sample Size 6.5ml)
Before I worked at Benefit is never tried their lipglosses, but as soon as I did I instantly fell in love with them! All of Benefits lip glosses are non drying and non sticky. They are lychee fragranced and leave your lips feeling incredibly soft! Benefit lipglosses come in 12 different shades, so you are bound to find one that you like. The Coralista lip gloss is a warm coral pink colour that's perfect for summer but I am sure you can wear it in winter and still look fabulous!
Benefit Sun Beam (Sample Size 4ml)
This is a golden bronze liquid highlighter which you can wear on your browbone and cheekbone. You could also mix this in with your favourite foundation to make it more dewy and bronze, and who doesn't love a multipurpose product!
So those are all the goodies in Benefit's It's A Love Fest gift set. I hope my mum will like it, and if not I will be more than happy to take any of the products off her haha! 
Have you had a look at Benefits Christmas gift sets yet? Which one is your favourite?
