Benefit The Bronze of Champions kit [Review]

The Bronze of Champions has the deluxe minis of six of the Benefit's best seller products! As the name suggests this kit is especially designed to achieve the tanned and bronzed look. The kit comes in a typical-to-Benefit cardboard box with a mirror and a guide for the products. It's an ideal palette to own especially if you want to try out all the products before going for the full sized ones!

My Thoughts:
The cardboard box packaging is extremely attractive and handy since it has magnetic closure which is so easy to use. The size is not too big and not too small, and it keeps all the small bits safely secured in their places so you can easily travel with it.
It has six products, I'll go through them one by one:

-Bikini Tini Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow:
 Incredibly soft and buttery, Bikini tini is a pale champagne/nude eyeshadow which can be used as a base for other eyeshadows or even as a highlighter for the inner corners of the eyes or the browbone, stays put and doesn't budge at all. Looks quite similar to Watts Up.
-Thanks a Latte Powder Eyeshadow:
It's a metallic taupe color, the texture is very soft and creamy, longlasting and very pigmented!
-Hoola Bronzer:
The much raved about Hoola is a completely matte, non-shimmery brown color powder with a buttery soft formula which blends like a dream and doesn't turn orange at all.
-Hoola Ultra Plush Gloss:
Hoola gloss is a clear [on me!], non sticky lipgloss with a slight sweet scent and taste, it makes your lips look x5 plumper!
-Watts Up Highlighter:
Super satin-y texture which blends like a dream, even with fingers! It's a pale gold-y champagne color which suits all skintones, illuminates the skin and doesn't highlight any imperfections.
-they're Real Mascara:
they're Real nicely lengthens the lashes and adds an average bit of volume nothing too extraordinary, the formula takes a little time to dry, hence you have to be careful of smudges when it's wet. It doesn't make my lashes humongous but to be honest when I use it in combination with the Maybelline Falsies, the effect is spectacular!
-A small brush has been included with the Hoola bronzer but honestly I've never even touched it!
Overall I LOVE this kit and I'm so glad to have tried out many of the Benefit products I wanted so bad!

The only thing I dislike about this kit is that the bronzer and powder eyeshadow are built-in and hence I cannot take them with me on their own while travelling unless I depot them into something suitable which is hard to find.

Price and Availbility:
I got this from Sephora for $32 plus tax. You can get it online via Makeup and Accessories and BeautyInBudget4u

  4. Thats another great palette by benefit, all the products in harmony , contains everything a bronzed look needs.
    ah hoola is perfect, i love it!
    hey i got a suggestion if you want to store hoola or the eyeshadow some place else you can easily get it out of its tray, since it made of thin cardboard, which is not attached to the box itself (past experience from a similar benefit kit :) )

  5. I agree with you!! The packaging looks so pretty!! I would love to try this out!! Thanks for the review! :D
