DH asked me what I want for xmas and I really need some more benetint, I had a little bottle in a set over a year ago and I use it every day. I cannot decide if it is worth getting a full size bottle or if I should get a set with another little bottle in, but then I can't decide what set. I evn looked at getitng the make up bag thing for £66 but I wouldn't normally spend £20 on mascara so it makes it very expensive. What sets do other people have and do you use all the bits in them?
I got a Christmas themed one in a tin. Think it was £25. It has eyeshadows and a lipgloss and I use it all, I think it had high beam too which I love. only trouble is is not very portable as the eyeshadows don't come out. Benefit does last a long time, my little bottles lasted a good six months I think.
thats the think isn't it, my tiny bottle has lasted me a year and still has a bit left so a big bottle would last years. I don't mind about the portability I don't tend to reapply makeup. I also have a tiny bottle of high beam which I love but is still nrealy full.
I had a couple of mini ones and then bought a full size one. Have had it for absolutely ages and it still looks virtually unused. Lasts forver and worth every penny. I'd only get it in a set if I knew I used the other stuff in the set - some of their stuff is brilliant and other things are a triumph of style over substance, ime.
