Most of my makeup bag is full of Benefit Cosmetics makeup. Although they don't sell loads compared to companies like MAC and Estee Lauder, their products seem really specialized to create a perfect look. Gone are the days where one concealer does a rubbish job, every product from benefit has really been thought out for its purpose and fits trends so perfectly too.

This year I asked for the NO.1 Selection Box from my parents. Although I own four of the products full size already, I just love knowing I wont ever run out. When I was about thirteen I longed for the day I could own one of their products so I feel very special owning all this makeup! The mini sizes are just so cute and perfect for travel sized items too! For someone who over fills her makeup bag when travelling this means I can take more with me!

Although the set is no longer for sale, you can now buy a lot of their mini products which I think its perfect for anyone on a smaller budget or if you want to try the products before you buy! In this set you get a They're Real Mascara (my favourite mascara ever), They're Real gel liner, Porefessional face primer, Its Potent Eye Cream, Boi-ing Concealer in Shade 1 and 2, High Beam highlighter and Hoola Bronzer and Rockateur Blush. I've reviewed a few of these products before but the idea behind this gift set is that it's all of their best sellers.

I have a huge 44ml Porefessional already in my collection as its one of the best primers I've ever tried. The mascara just wows every time for full black lashes. I've only tried a mini liner before and heard interesting reviews on it so I'll look forward to trying it out properly myself. For concealer, this is the one I use every day, it works and is 'industrial' strength so you've got no worries for a bad skin day with this beauty.

The blushers and bronzers also impress everyday. I've used Hoola for maybe a year now and I can't think of a single day where I've not worn it. Rockateur is also a shimmery pink blush perfect for a new year glow! As I said this isn't available to buy anymore, it sold out quick too but if you see any of Benefit's sets on sale or over the next year definitely invest. Benefit just know how to create great products! I can't think of one I don't like!
