Benefit Glossytown Lipgloss Set

  Benefit's Holiday Gift Selection has proved popular again this year with my most wanted set being the Glossytown lipgloss collection. 6 Glosses in a great selection of colours this little set works out at £3 for each 3ml Gloss. Although 3ml seems a small ammount they will last you a long time as you only need a quick swipe to get a maximum ammount of shine and colour.
 The colours in the set are
  • so frisk me 
  • nudie-tude
  • spiked punch
  • life on the A list
  • foxy lady
  • kiss you
So you really do get a range of nudes, shimmers, glitters, purples and pinks.

Foxy Lady- Blue Toned Fushia
 This gloss is lovely blue,purple toned gloss with lots of sparkle. It appears more sheer on the lips but with lots of shine.
Kiss You- Berry Coloured Gloss
 This has to be one of the most unique colours in the set, some may hate but personally I like it. I will have to experiment on what I can wear with it but it shows a beautiful berry gloss on the lips. This is one of the most pigmented in the set too. Definately gorgeous for the winter and spring!
Life on The A List- Baby pink nude
 This has to be my favourite colour from the set, as I've mentioned before I've owned this gloss full sized previously however it died. I'm so happy to have it back in my collection and it suits so many nude lipsticks. I love wearing this with Elf Runway Pink. Its very true to the swatch on the lips aswell.
Nudie-Tude A glittery brown nude
 Probably not my favourite shade due to the glitter but it does look nice with darker nude lipsticks which are more brown toned. It does contain glitter which make it a little more drier on the lips but I cannot fault the colour as it is true to swatch and would suit anyone who doesnt wear braces because glitter and braces just doesnt go well because its toooo much shine.
So Frisk Me- Very high shine brown red
 This gloss is the definition of high shine lipgloss. It is a beautiful colour and does go on the lips fairly brown toned. Luckily the glitter in this gloss doesnt show as much and I think its more of a shimmer than glitter particles like Nudie-Tude. It is a nice colour but I think the eyes would have to be pretty basic and the blusher very matte with this gloss. Its a very statement colour to wear.
Spiked Punch- Highlighly pigmented coral shine
This is a gorgeous coral orange with a hint of pink. No shimmer or glitter but pure shine and matte colour. Its a gorgeous colour on the lips and will be perfect for summer, it looks gorgeous alongside a pale pink lipstick as it looks more pink with the nude and with a red toned lipstick it shows the orange. A really fabulous colour and very pigmented that I was really surprised about!

The brush applicators are really good, soft bristles with square tops and helpful to blend the gloss and reach the corners without going all over the place. The top of the lid of the gloss may get a bit gloopy because you sometimes dont need as much as the brush pulls out so if you wipe it on the top it gets stuck on the rim but not the end of the world.

For £19.00 it is a utter bargain as I said you get 6 glosses at 3ml each meaning your paying £3.14 for each gloss, bargain..yes?! They are a perfect size for clutch bags, handbags and makeup bags meaning you can fit other products in your bags now.

You can currently get the set for £13 on http://www.boots.com/benefitglossytown. Meaning you'll still be paying £2.16 for each gloss!
