Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot



I got this set for my birthday. It was probably one of my favourite presents actually. I heard about Benefit's Cheeky Sweet Spot being one of the new releases for Christmas and when I saw the products inside I knew I needed to have it. Do you ever see a product and think 'that was made just for me?!' -well this was it!

I love Benefit blushers, it's only in the last couple of years I've become a blush person. I never used to bother and now I can't live without it -ok a tad dramatic but you know what I mean, my make up doesn't look finished without a bit of blush!

The kit contains 5 blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter. I lost my Rockateur after owning it for a week - I was so upset!  I also ran out of my favourite Sugarbomb not long afterwards. It was a tough decision trying to work out which to replace first. I'd also had my eye on Dandelion and I have a sample of Coralista which I think is great but a little fiddly to get my blush brush into... See what I mean?! this was made for me!

Used Hoola for years and is one product I repurchase over and over again so the fact that that is included in the set is brilliant. Benefit have even included a little removable sample of their 'Watts Up' highlighter.

To try out all of these would cost me a (Sugar)bomb. But this amazing little set is 
£29.50 for 6 generous sizes of the blushes. A full sized box of blush retails at £23.50 so this is an absolute bargain! They are not full size but some are not far off. There's 4g of Dandelion, 5g of Bellabamba, 6g of Sugarbomb, and 5g of Hoola, Coralista and Rockateur. I think that is plenty to get a fair trial of them all before shelling out on a full sized one. I also love that they are the normal large square shape and not the tiny sample size that you find in some of the sets. These are much easier to swirl a brush around.

Top to Bottom - Dandelion, Bellabamba, Sugarbomb, 
Hoola, Coralista, Rockateur.

It's all cased inside a really cute tin which is a great compact size, about the size of an A5 notebook and it includes a small brush and booklet on tips how to use each of the products.

I'm so pleased with this and think it's a great way to try out some of the products without paying for full sized versions. If you like Benefit Blushes, this is a great gift for you! Treat yourself!

  2. I was never a huge fan of Benefit, and I don't think I ever will be but my oh my this is incredible. I won it in a Giveaway and I haven't been able to put it down since!
    My only problem with it is that I don't like the Watt's Up packaging and I would love for it to have a mirror!

    1. It's so great isn't it?! I'm almost spoilt for choice with it. I completely agree with you about the Watt's Up, it's a little fiddly.

  3. I really want to try this, the sizes are so good for the price! I used to hate wearing blusher too but now I do think it finishes a look off. I've never tried any of Benefit's blushers but I might get this when I run out of my Sleek one :)
