the best purchase I made last year was the Benefit Blush Palette so I was so excited to see that they have another one in this years Christmas Collection. The theme of this years collection from Benefit is Parties and all of the packaging of the gift sets is incredible - Benefit always have some of the best packaging! This years blush palette is slightly different to last years but I do really like the changes they have made and the products that they have included.
How gorgeous is that packaging! The palette itself is a metal tin which is very durable and if you do have it in your makeup bag it isn't going to get damaged easily. The palette itself is slightly smaller than last years having compared the two. You can actually remove the foam insert from inside the palette so once you have used up all of the products you can re-use the tin, it would make gorgeous makeup storage for your lipsticks or individual eyeshadows.
Inside the palette is five powder blushes, a cream highlighter and a travel size eyeliner and mascara. Last years palette has six powder blushes, a cream highlighter and a travel size brush. I actually prefer this years contents! The five powders included are, CORALista, Hoola, Rockateur, Sugarbomb and Dandelion. You also have the Watt's Up Highlighter and the They're Real Push-Up Liner and the They're Real Beyond Mascara. The only blush I haven't really used from last years palette is Sugarbomb so I would have preferred if that was swapped out for Dallas as that is one of my all time favourites.
I like that they replaced the brush for a couple of products instead this year as I didn't really use it anyway so I like that you actually get to try out of Benefit's other best selling products. I think this palette is the best one from Benefit's Christmas collection and it is incredible value for money. Considering one of the Benefit Boxed Powders are around £23.50 (full size) and this palette is only £29.50 it is pretty much a no brainer! I have only just hit pan on one of my powders from last years palette and I use it every single day so it is definitely worth the price tag. I have actually got my little Sister one of these for Christmas as she always steals mine. I actually managed to get this palette for just over £25 as there was a discount code for Feel Unique so definitely keep an eye out for discount codes if you do want to purchase.
The Benefit REAL Cheeky Party Kit retails for £29.50 - link.
