The Bronze of Champions by Benefit: REVIEW | CharlotteBehappy

You may not have heard of these but from big high-end brands, you can buy sample boxes or starter kits. These contain samples of different products from high end brands, and they're usually set at good prices. This one is by Benefit and has the theme of 'bronze'. It was £26.50 from Boots.

It comes in a box or 'book' like this. Some parts can be takeout whereas some like the eyeshadow and bronzer stay in the box. All the parts are minis (even the brush) except the eyeshadow which is full size.

Here's some close ups of the products. They all fit the theme of bronze and shimmery products.

 Watts Up Highlighter: It's a gold stick highlighter. It blends well to leave a shimmery highlight with a little gold residue. It sits well on foundation. It's not too creamy so it doesn't melt or get everywhere.

Bikini tint cream eyeshadow: It's a nice colour but isn't amazingly pigmented. It lasts well and is a generally good base but it takes a while to dry.

They're Real Mascara: It lengthens lashes but it's amazingly thickening. It's nice, not groundbreaking.

Hoola Lipgloss: This feels incredibly oily on the lips and isn't pigmented at all. Doesn't make lips feel plumpy, it's like a clear thin lipgloss.

Eyeshadow: There's doesn't seem to be a name for this. It's pretty and blend wells. It's an all round nice eyeshadow but it's no better than my amazing MUA ones.

Hoola Bronzer: A matte bronzer. Great for contour or for a natural looking bronze for those with darker skin.
