How cute is the packaging on the Benefit Holiday 2018 Gift Sets? Granted, it feels more like someone’s wedding collection but for some reason I’m totally in love with these. I typically feel like Benefit’s Holiday packaging can be a little bulky as they tend to house their gift sets in tins that are difficult to store. And of course, you feel bad about tossing them our after you remove the contents so, here you are with a bunch of huge, bulky packaging items that you have no where to store.


But these three tier cake are too cute. I just want one for the packaging alone. Don’t worry my logical side is telling, “Stop already! You don’t have the room to store these!” but my really illogical side is saying, “OMG CAKE!” Not to mention some of the sets are really great values with full-size items (nearly 50% off retail pricing). For example, they have a full-size trio of different mascaras for $36! That’s 50% off as typically it would set you back $72 for all three! I’m impressed with the pricing on their Holiday 2018 sets! There is definitely a good deal of bang for your buck here if you don’t already own these items!

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.

    Yeah I’m gonna have to have one of those tins! Cant resist. I’ve recently developed a liking for they’re real mascara so probably that one.

    Sadly as a Canadian I can’t buy them online and on top of it have no makeup stores in my town. A shame cause I’m really loving the cute packaging. I actually have some cash for a change but that is what I get for moving to the middle of nowhere lol I’m thinking of getting ulta’s holiday collection as it’s one of the only holiday collections to come with a bag I can reuse and isn’t pink. Of course it’s not really themed or cute, plus the products won’t be as high quality. I mean those little cake tins would have been so cute!! I’m telling myself they would have been too small to really use but that’s basically just me fibbing to myself. I’m going to dream of their cute faces (especially the purple <3 ).

        I don’t really know anyone from the USA, I’m just glad it’s not one of those things where it ships everywhere but here. It’s nice to know there’s an equal amount of holiday blues out there lol I like to think it’s the universe trying to save me a buck. I’m staying glued to your blog (and ulta and sephora of course) for all the holiday kits so I’m sure I’ll see something I like. Not smart to be buying kits just for the packaging anyways but I’m a sucker for good packaging.
