Here are five top reasons why this Benefit Femme Metale Precious Metals Eye Make-up Kit should be on your wish list!
1. A little colour never hurt anyone.
The gorrrgeous jewel-toned colours of the creaseless shadows and pencil liners are perfect go-to’s for the season’s holidays looks. Although, there’s not a hint of basic black or brown to this set, the colours are actually all quite wearable…and will carry you well into spring trends too! For the neutral lovers, there is a shimmery white (Platinum) and beige-y gold (Taupe-aztic). Either way, you’ll have plenty of options for dolling up your little black dress(es)! TIP: You don’t have to wear ALL the colours at once. In fact, please don’t. Mix and match 2 to 3 of the products (refer to the back of the packaging for suggestions or see my eye above as a quick guide).
2. Long-lasting formulas will take your look from day to night.
With all those holiday parties on your agenda, the Creaseless Cream Shadows are the perfect option for a make-up look that has to work overtime. I like to layer the cream eyeshadows under my powder eyeshadows – the layering helps to increase my eyeshadow’s longevity and also makes it appear more vivid….perfect for a night out!
3. Amazing value.
The kit has three of Benefit’s FULL-size pots of Creaseless Cream Shadows and three travel-sized (not mini, but not exactly full-size) super-pigmented liners. One cream shadow alone retails for $25, so the total value of this kit is approximately that of 2 cream shadows. Talk about a deal!
4. Better than chocolate.
The packaging kinda reminds me of those advent chocolate calendars I would get as a kid, but no empty calories here – this gift will last way longer than the temporary (but-still-so-good!) satisfaction derived from chocolate (and I also won’t have to worry about hitting the gym in the New Year).
5. Cheaper than gems.
Gem coloured eyeliners are cheaper than well, real gems…and putting this item on the wish list is probably more realistic/attainable than wishing for a ring fit for a royal engagement!
Ok, so the last two points are not my usual kind of reasons…but you GET it. Or maybe you’ll give it. Or maybe you’ll get it to give to yourself…lol! You’ll see! :)
Benefit’s Femme Metale Precious Metals Eye Make-up Kit retails for $44 CAD (approximate value of $120 CAD) and is available at Sephora stores or online at sephora.com.
