Benefit: Groovy Kind-a Love Make Up Kit


I’m sure you’ve all seen the fantastic Christmas sets from Benefit this year, if not here’s a link for you to browse at your leisure!

I have already purchased one of the tins (Love me B.right) which I will be reviewing very soon, but I couldn’t resist but snap up this palette as well…


Groovy Kind-a Love is a beautiful palette containing an assortment of products. The back of the box shows the products, colours and names as below:


What excited me most was the dual blusher and the 4 eyeshadow colours, I don’t own any eyeshadows from Benefit so I was really looking forward to trying them out.

It also contains the ever amazing Porefessional, Benetint and They’re Real which I am a huge fan of.


The tin itself is small and beautifully formed, the pattern and outside images are really pretty and this would be great as a gift.
The inside is also displayed very well and would be a handy weekend kit or gift for someone who has never tried Benefit products before; or even for yourself as a payday treat like mine was. I’m such a bad saver!



Here’s a closer look of the palette.

I love the arrangement and that the eyeshadows are in colour order, it would annoy me intensely if they weren’t!
I also love that it comes with brushes making it a great kit for on the go or taking away with you.
Plus multi purpose products such as Benetint for lips and cheeks are great value too.


After applying my base as usual I then used the Dandelion and Gimme Fever blushers to give my face some colour and definition:


It’s a beautiful colour and the shimmer is just enough to look like my skin has a glow but isn’t glittery.
It’s a gorgeous colour and I wish you could buy Gimme Fever separately!


I applied the eyeshadows in colour order, with Tickle My Ivory on the inner corner and Gilt-y Pleasure over the rest of the lid:


Shimmer Down was then applied to the crease and Kiss Me I’m Tipsy along the upper lashline:



These are such beautiful colours that can be worn day or night. They’re perfect neutral colours for any outfit and occasion and I can see them getting a lot of use from me!

With They’re Real applied the look is complete:


I do love how my lashes look with They’re Real. They’re lengthened, volumised and curled so I really cannot complain! I’d purchase this all the time if I could afford it but for the mean time the miniature versions are keeping me going as I’ve had a few different sets.


With Benetint applied as well this is a look I can see myself wearing regularly as it’s pretty but chic.
I love the eyshadow colours a lot!


Do you like the palette from Benefit? It costs £29.50 and you can get it from Boots and Debenhams.

It’s a great present for someone if you’re stuck for something to buy and I would have loved to have received it if I hadn’t have snapped it up myself already…

I’ve got my eye on Gimme Some Lovin’ with Hoola and They’re Real in, and also It’s a Love Fest with Porefessional and Sun Beam (both £39.50)

Fingers crossed my mum will listen to my hints! Which would you put on your Christmas list??
