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.

I don't use benetint but my advice would be to only but a set of you love all of the products in the set.

I'd buy the benetint by itself and then get yourself something you love with whatever money you have leftover.

Benetint was part of the 4 miniatures for £15 in Boots, if it's still on.

Do you use benetint on your cheeks? I've got some but when I've put it on I find it doesn't always blend in too well

I do, ,do 3 small stripes and then blend it really quickly, i use it on my lips as well. you do have to be quick though if it dries it stains.

That's a great offer. Thanks LaCerbiatta four minis is better value than one big one. I think I may need to treat myself!
