Benefit Advent Calendar Days 13 to 16 : Mini Reviews

On the 13th day of Christmas Benefit gave to me... a charm bracelet. I don't mind the non make-up gifts as it makes a nice change. This bracelet is quite pretty but seems very cheap, it is pretty much a pink bobble with a charm on it, a pretty charm though.

On the 14th day of Christmas Benefit gave to me... 4g of Bad Gal Lash Mascara. 

Bad Gal is a lovely mascara and gives my lashes a nice, full look. I was surprised to see that they chose to include Bad Gal over They're Real.

The full size 8.5g Bad Gal Lash Mascara costs £17.50 making this 4g sample worth approximately £8.24.

On the 15th day of Christmas Benefit gave to me... 2.5ml of Posietint.

This is my first time trying Posietint and I'm quite impressed. The colour is gorgeous both on cheeks and lips (I'm wearing it on both above). It leaves you with a gorgeous pink flush and doesn't dry out the lips. The formula is thicker than Benetint and I like it a lot more. I can see me becoming quite the fan of Posietint. It looks great worn alone or as a base.

The full size 12.5ml Posietint costs £24.50 making this 2.5ml sample worth approximately £4.90.

On the 16th day of Christmas Benefit gave to me... 3g of Hoola Bronzing Powder. 

I don't wear bronzer very often, being so pale it tends to scare me, especially in the Winter. I decided to give it a go over Posietint and really liked the effect. This is definitely a make-up look that I would wear again and again, both for daytime and evening looks. 

The full size 8g Hoola Bronzing Powder costs £23.50 making this 3g sample worth approximately £8.81.

Approximate total so far = £97.28 + two bonus items (hair clip and bracelet).


  1. The Benefit calendar looks exciting, the Hoola bronzer is so pretty

    1. It is very exciting,I'm already wondering what I'll get tomorrow! x

  2. The mascara looks great on your lashes, definitely agree with you, I'd have thought They're Real would have appeared instead of BG.
