Benefit Beauty & The Bay Gets You a Golden Glow for the Holidays

Benefit Beauty & The Bay is a new Holiday Value Set that recently launched with the brand’s Holiday 2017 Collection and contains three full-size products as well as one mini. This sets focus point is a full-size Benefit Hoola. All of a sudden I feel like Clark Griswald! Shall I sing Mele Kalikimaka for you? Hoola does that to a girl. Did I ever tell you that the very first Benefit Box o’ Powder I ever tried was Hoola?

If you’ve been a Benefit collector and fan for a long time I bet it was yours too. It’s an rite of passage to buy a box of Hoola and a bottle of Benetint because they are probably two of the brand’s most talked about products.

Well, this new set gets you one of those and a few others of my favs like a full-size High Brow Highlighter & Lift Pencil! With the many, many beauty products I use it is hard to hit pan on anything but High Brow is one of those products I’ve used to the nub on several occasions. I like using this right above my eye socket to brighten the area up. It also provides a nice brightening highlight for the brow one area.

What else is inside this kit?

A full-size They’re Real Mascara and a mini High Beam Liquid Highlighter. High Beam and Hoola play really nicely together to create a pretty glow. Typically I don’t like wearing Hoola alone though so I brush it on my face, smile really big, and I pop a little blush on the apples of my cheeks and put High Beam on top. It gives me a nice warm glow without looking muddy!

I dunno how Benefit is doing it this year but the set is $39 bucks. Hoola alone is $29 and They’re Real is $24 not to mention High Brow at $22. It’s almost as if you’r paying for Hoola and $10 bucks more for the other goodies. Pretty sweet price if you ask me.

If you love Hoola, haven’t tried Hoola, or just can’t give up Summer for the cold harsh winter ahead here’s an easy and affordable way to get a gorgeous glow for the Holidays.

Benefit Beauty & The Bay is available now at Ulta.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

      they have several this year that are pretty darn good values. It’s kind of rare to get several full-size items in Holiday sets outside of hsn and qvc! ;-D
