On the 21st day of Christmas Benefit gave to me… 6.5ml Ultra Plush Coralista.

I will admit that I was a little disappointed to find yet another lip gloss, this is the fourth that I’ve had and I don’t tend to wear them. I guess that is one of the risks when buying a beauty advent calendar, you are more than likely going to get products that you won’t use. Coralista swatches lovely but doesn’t provide much colour pay off on the lips. As with the other lip glosses it smells gorgeous.
The full size 15ml Coralista Ultra Plush costs £14.50 making this 6.5ml sample worth approximately £6.28.
On the 22nd day of Christmas Benefit gave to me… a star charm necklace.
I’ve mentioned previously that a lot of people are annoyed with the inclusion of jewellery, I’m not and actually think it is a nice change to find these items. This is a pretty necklace, but as with the other bonus items probably quite cheap, just a simple star charm on gold thread, very pretty though.
On the 23rd day of Christmas Benefit gave to me… 2.5ml of Cha Cha Tint.

Cha Cha Tint is a Mango coloured lip and cheek stain. These long lasting multi-purpose tints are very popular Benefit products and look great providing a natural flush of colour.
The full size 12.5ml Cha Cha Tint costs £24.50 making this 2.5ml sample worth approximately £4.90.
On the 24th day of Christmas Benefit gave to me… 3g of Dandelion brightening face powder/blusher.

The blushers are one of the main reasons for me getting this calendar, believe it or not I hadn’t tried any before and had heard such rave reviews about them that I thought this was a great way to try them all out. Dandelion can be used all over the face for a brightening effect or just on the cheeks or both. In the above photo I am wearing it just on the cheeks and really like how it looks.
The full size 7g Dandelion costs £23.50 making this 3g sample worth approximately £10.07.
Approximate total advent calendar contents = £150.12 + three bonus items (hair clip, bracelet and necklace).
Keep your eyes peeled for my next post with my final thoughts on the Benefit advent calendar.
