Festive Fun-Size Flirts – Benefit Xmas at Boots

Can you believe its the end of September already? Although summer is barely over, the preparations for Christmas are well underway and today a post is a sneak preview of an amazing Benefit Christmas gift set at Boots.

Christmas at Boots has taken on a luxury feel this year. Forget about your Jamies Wok set and novelty oven gloves, this year I’m seeing some fabulous sets from my favourite brands – think Liz Earle, Ciate, Ted Baker and of course – Benefit Cosmetics.

For those of you too impatient to wait for Christmas, never fear! I have a little sneak preview of one of the gift sets, Fun-Size Flirts!

I absolutely love these travel size Benefit Cosmetics – they’re perfect for slipping into your handbag for touchups on the go.

The Fun-Size Flirts has TEN beauty bestsellers for your collection. A great mix of primers and perfectors, it’s also a great opportunity for those who want to try before they buy full size Benefit Cosmetics!

What’s In The Box?

Skin Primers

Instant Comeback Facial Serum

That Gal Primer

Stay Dont Stray

The Porefessional

Skin Perk-uppers


Ooh La Lift

Badgal Lash

Dandelion Blush


They’re Real! Mascara

What a selection! I have been dying to try Sunbeam highlighter for ages, I have lots of pearl highlighters but I need to branch out into warmer shades.

I also love the teeny tiny Posie Tint and Stay Dont Stray bottles. I had one of these free from Glamour magazine once and you know what? They last AGES. I still have that freebie from Glamour!

I also haven’t tried the Instant Comeback Serum yet but everytime I try Benefit skincare at the counter, I’m always impressed with the results! I also really like the They’re Real mascara, so a handbag version is much needed! (see They’re Real vs Chanel Le Volume Mascara here)

Face Value Tip: This Christmas at Boots, you can fill a Benefit stocking with deluxe mini’s for £5 each, or 4 for £15….

Definitely worth getting this gift on your Xmas list – these little beauties tend to sell for £5 a piece, so you’ve got £50 worth of makeup must-haves here. I love it!

Have you tried any of these? Any recommendations for my “GO FULLSIZE” list?

    This is such a great value set. Hope this will be available in Canada too. I am a big fan of Benefit's and would recommend Porefessional to go full sized. Favorite primer!
