Picture Perfect Skin? Benefit’s How To Look The Best At Everything Kit

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 30 - 2012

God. Have I told you how much I love foundation? Oh, I have?! Well, the thing is… I really love foundation. I love the idea of being able to smooth over the blemishes, teeny veins and discolouration with what is, effectively, a new skin.

If I were a character in a horror-filled b-movie, I’d like to be the skin harvester and I’d go around, stealing people’s faces… no, please don’t leave. I’m only joking. Sort of.

So that I don’t have to go around harvesting other people’s faces, Benefit have launched a new beauty kit that will appeal to all foundation-lovers out there.  How To Look The Best At Everything claims to contain everything we need to achieve that sought-after flawless complexion.

Let’s take a closer look….

The kit is available in three skin shades: Light, Medium and Deep and is packaged in squee cute Benefit stylee, taking obvious inspiration from the series of similarly titled books.  Despite the housing being cardboard, it stands up pretty well to mild misuse… it’s not gonna crumble anytime soon, unless you put it in the washing machine or something phenomenally stupid like that.  In which case, you deserve whatever soggy mess awaits you.

Beneath the ‘front cover’ sits an assortment of Benefit’s face products… providing you ‘get on’ with the products inside, this is a brilliant thing to take away on holidays/dirty weekends and the like.  Do people even still have dirty weekends?  I feel like I’ve just stepped out of the 80s with that expression!

So, from left to right, we have:

The POREfessional primer (7.5ml) |  Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow in “Cheers to Me” Champagne foundation (7ml) | Boi-ing 01 & 02 concealer (1.5g each) | “Hello Flawless!” “Me, Vain?” Champagne powder (4g).

I’ve been doing my sums and based on the quantities of product you receive inside the kit, compared to the full-size prices…. the kit is worth approximately £44.22 on product value alone.

Which is pretty awesome considering that Benefit (who are not well-known for their bargainous prices) are asking only £24.50 for the entire set.

It’s a great starting point for anyone unfamilliar with the Benefit base makeup line and would be a lovely present for most teens *cough* and older makeup-loving ladies to open on Christmas morning.

Benefit’s How To Look The Best At Everything kit* is available to buy now online and on counter nationwide, priced at £24.50

  1. Nice to see Benefit finally decided to put a plastic lid on top of the concealer! Everything on the Confessions of a Concealaholic kit dried up in no time! I think I may add this one on my Christmas wish list :)

    This is a very useful little kit.
    I love these for finding out which of their products I really like and which I really don’t. Great little price tag too!

  3. sophie says:

    Hm, this is a really nice idea but I have a funny feeling that, as usual, three shade ranges means that the ‘light’ will actually look oompa-loompa orange on me :/

  4. vanessa says:

    I love benefits sets especially the smokey eyes one. This looks really good and the packaging is cute too :)

  5. I love the packaging, and if I didn’t already have my favorite foundation and powder, I’d totally snatch up one of these. As you said, they’d be a great present.

  6. Oh, what a cute little kit! I love that it’s packaged like a book ;o)

    (P.S. I didn’t see your new flat post until much too late, but I just wanted to say: it looks great, Charlotte! Very bright and homey :))

  7. I’m usually not a big fan of these “cutesy” kits, but I have to say, this really is adorable

  8. Leah says:

    I’m quite tempted by this!

    Is it just me who doesn’t get the point of these little kits benefit do, they’re just expensive kits of samples :/
