BENEFIT 'BEAUTY BON BONS' BARGAIN


In the airport on my way back to Madrid I couldn't resist a little stop off in duty free. Who can't not have a look in there, come on, seriously? Because my student loan hadn't dropped yet, I was reluctant to go in there with the purpose to buy anything. Instead I sort of went in with the sole purpose to have a browse at all the pretty make up I will never allow myself to buy and all the too tempting chocolate (which I'm sure is so much more expensive than outside the airport).


Anyway, I had a browse at the small Benefit counter and saw this adorable set that was £30, reduced to £16! I was trying to convince myself that I didn't need this- that it wasn't worth the small hole it would leave in my pocket, that I didn't need any new makeup, and that it was probably full of small products, but that tactic never works really, does it?

However, when I came to the realisation that this actually includes two full sized products and three miniatures I couldn't resist. With High Beam and Hoola being their 'proper' size and knowing they both cost £20 on their own, give or take a couple of pounds, my initial thought of it being a waste were gone!


So here's what's in it! I have tried High Beam and They're Real before, but both freebies from magazines a year or so ago. I loved them both and I'm really excited to try the rest of the products! I'll possibly be posting some reviews up of them soon. (Once I have actually used them. Bloggers code of not using products until they're photographs and all that!)

There's not really much more to this post, I just wanted to show you all the bargain I grabbed! 

Thanks for reading!

  1. I used to live in Madrid and I'd grab so many bargains at the airport! This looks amazing, feeling quite jealous that I don't live there anymore so I can't get one for myself!

    1. It's probably a good way to be! Lots of higher priced make up for not a lot of money! And if you don't like a minature then it's no big deal xx
