Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Holiday Box O' Blushes Review Swatches and Giveaway

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Question. Do you think all of these are blushes? They are NOT! It says box o' blushes on the front, but not all of them are blushes! Is that a tongue twister? LOL The Cheeky Sweet Spot Box O' Blushes Holiday Set by Benefit ($36 OUT OF STOCK at Benefit, Macys, Boots, Sephora) contains a bronzer, highlighter, all over face brightener, brush AND blushes! It comes with a cute little booklet, that explains them all AND DO NOT DO LIKE ME and toss the booklet to the side! LOL READ IT MY PRETTIES! LOL I knew something was wrong when I kept applying layer after layer of Dandelion and it didn't produce much color. I was like WTF am I doing wrong?...I DO know how to apply BLUSH! I picked up the book and found out it's an all over face brightener :) Another thing! You are suppose to start off either BRIGHTENING (Dandelion) or BRONZING (Hoola), THEN use the others! Or you could just Watts Up (HIGHLIGHTER) and be done with it. LOL This set has one little brush for application. So you most likely will need your other makeup brushes. Super cute dimensional tin packaging with magnetic lid closing. It's charming and comes covered with lemon & gum drops, lollipops, tarts, gum, candy canes, ice cream cones, ALL in a cute Sweet Shop inspired setting. There's countless reviews on this, so I'll stop here. I love them all! The only one I need to work with is Hoola. I'm really fair, so it comes off dark on me. Maybe I should use a lighter hand. This is an excellent way to sample Benefit's "blushes" or "box of powders". I have an extra one of these beauties waiting on a lucky reader. See, I'm not CHEEKY ;) This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE (well anywhere USPS ships) and again, I'm not responsible for any adverse skin, health or mental reactions upon using this product. Use the Rafflecopter widget below! Good Luck!

Oooh! Do you see the label in the picture above? There must've been a manufacturing printing snafu!
I bet Benefit was mad! They did a great job covering it up though :)

Very nice packaging and the shades are really pretty! I see the snafu you were talking about! I wonder if Benefit was upset lol! I agree they did a good job covering it up!

This has to be my favourite Benefit kit in years!

Lilli said...

This box seems made for me Kim! I have an addiction for bronzer, highlighter, blush and brightener, and in this set they come in one, I want it to bad! I always wanted to try face powder from Benefit, plus the packaging is utterly cute! Yummy also for that cake :P Hugs! xo

Haha, guess sometimes you gotta read the descriptions, huh? I would've done the same thing xD

I would have thought it was all blushes too! I tried Watts up and it seemed pretty cool. I need to try it again. The swatches look great on you!

The packaging is sooo cute! And no, I have never tried Benefit blushes and powder. I have tried the concealer, highlighters and mascaras but somehow never pick up the blushes. Fingers crossed though, the swatches looks amazing, Kim!

I need to find this palette somewhere. I had a whole plan to buy it when I will be in New York next week but it seems to be sold out everywhere. :( Any ideas?

FASHION TALES said...

I think all of these colours are so pretty, I'm not certain if they would work for me, but I love them!The one I have tried similar is Hoola for summertime. The packaging is very sweet and lovely! Happy Holidays Kim! :)

I've tried Benetint and love it. If I had the money I'd be buying everything of Benefits I love their cosmetics. Also, I think the pictures you took for this post are really awesome.

Lorena said...

Dear Kim, since I started reading your blog I've fallen in love with Benefit. However I haven't purchased their powders yet (unless Porefessional can be considered such). Count me in! Fingers crossed for this awesome giveaway!Baci,

I haven't tried the blushes yet, but I've been searching for the perfect color for my super pale skin. This palette would be a good opportunity to try a bunch!

radmilamila said...

o la la awesome set! i have nevre tried benefit .... yet?

Ramona said...

I never have bought something form benefit. I like cute product packaging, but I find that benefit is too much for me. It's just not my cup of tea. I hope I don't sound like terrible, but that's just true, I don't like their packaging.

I love Benefit products but I have to say, I'm really not a fan of the packaging - the cardboard is cute but it's not at all durable. I've broken so many of their blushes that I've given up now. Which is a shame, because this set looks really fun.
xox,
Cee

Joie Fatale said...

Such a cute tin! I wish I knew more about blushing/bronzing (or is it blushing vs. bronzing?).

oomph. said...

i had the hoola bronzer on my to-try list forever...then i went to sephora and the color didn't even show up on my skin. but i've seen so many youtubers use it for contouring and i'm just convinced it's the perfect color. i may need to purchase anyways!
