The Benefit Pretty Parfait is the perfect gift for all you last minute shoppers out there. Not only does it include some of Benefit’s top-selling products, it comes in the sweetest, cutest, most adorable reusable tin that requires no wrapping. Just stick a bow on it and you’re done. Each kit features a full-size tube of They’re Real Mascara, a full-size Stay Don’t Stray Eyeshadow Primer in Light/Medium, a full-size Gimme Brow in Light/Medium and a deluxe sample-size of POREfessional face primer. It retails for $46, but comes with a $98 value.
Benefit Pretty Parfait is totally universal no matter your skin colour, age or style, and is the perfect set for any girl on your holiday list. It contains 4 beauty essentials that every girl needs in the morning starting with a good mascara. Benefit They’re Real Mascara is probably one of my fave mascaras of all time. I have a full review on it here, so I won’t go into too much detail. If you’re looking for massive volume, extreme length and a mascara that will actually hold your curl, this will be your holy grail. It’s waterproof and extremely dark, highly pigmented formula, will give you dramatic lashes in a single coat.
Although the Benefit Stay Don’t Stray Eyeshadow Primer is not quite as good as the Urban Decay Primer Potion, to me, it’s a close second. This tinted primer holds onto everything from powdery shadows to creamy under eye concealers. It helps to prime the lid for a crease-free look that lasts all day to prep the under-eye area for concealer. The tint actually does a wonderful job at concealing dark under eye circles or redness/ unevenness on the lid even before the makeup. It holds in place the entire day.
Benefit Gimme Brow is something that I’ve only had the chance to experiment with for a few days, but the innovated, mascara style wand gives my brows a subtle boost they so desperately need. No more eyebrow pencils for this girl. The brush on fibers gel adheres to each individual hair creating thick, lustrous brows that’s extremely buildable and blendable. My lashes truly do look fuller and thicker, yet still natural.
Benefit POREfessional Face Primer is another favourite of mine. It evens out skin tone, minimized the appearance of enlarged pores and acts as the perfect base before applying foundation. Its silky smooth, slightly tinted formula allows for your makeup to effortlessly glide across the skin and makes your makeup last all day without budging.
