Benefit's 6 Set Lip Gloss

Hey everyone, just a quick post.. Last week I was sorting through all my old make up and making room for some new bits when I can across these Benefit Lip Glosses that I'd been given as a birthday present a few years back, completely forgetting I had them and I know what your thinking, how an earth can you forget about these beauts? It's so shameful as I've been wearing them ever since cleaning out all my make up, and suddenly I'm in love all over again! 

Not only do they come in 6 absolutely gorgeous shades they sit so well on your lips, making them feel really plump and so full. 3 out of the 6 glosses have small speckles of shimmer in them which make your lips so beautifully moist and I honestly can't get enough of them. I've done a few swatches below, just imagine what they'd look like layered on your favourite lipsticks. 

After seeing these slightly shimmery, plump glosses your probably thinking where's the link so I can purchase 1 for myself, or even heading over to the Benefit website, don't bother as they've discontinued them! I know, what was they thinking?? I'm so gutted as I know for sure when mine run out I will cry cause I can't repurchase. However, knowing my love for them and that a few ladies from the bloggers community would love to have these in their collection, I decided to dig a little deeper in a bid to try and find either a dupe or the very exact set elsewhere. 

(if you can't see the writing above because it's blocked by a white strip, highlight the white area and the writing will appear, really sorry!) 

So in my hunt I stumbled across Benefit's Glitz Glam & Gloss on Ebay and they are basically the same just different packaging and of course a hell of alot cheaper, brand new too! I was so thrilled not only for myself but so you guys can try them out if they've taken your fancy, click here for your set. 

I'll wish everyone a great weekend now as I'm off camping tomorrow afternoon with family and friends for my 18th so won't be back to blog until after Monday. Have a great weekend and I'll look forward to reading everyone's post when I'm back. 

Which shade is your favourite?? 
Have you tried Benefit's Glitz, Glam & Gloss??

  1. i love these shades.
    espesh the pinks!
    i'm still undecided about how i feel about benefit as a brand :(

    1. I've recently started to purchase more Benefit products as they've been recommended and I must say I do love their Brow Zing kit and obv their lipglosses, However their skin and face product tend to break me out so like yourself I'm still deciding weather I'm a firm believer of Benefit!

  2. Nice post, love the colours :)

  3. I love the look of the 'Life on the A-list' shade - perfect nude!

    I've nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award :) You can check out all the info on my blog!

    huge hugs Gittemary !

  6. These shades look gorgeous, I love the darkest one! :)
    I thought I'd reply here in case you didn't check back on my blog - I can't compare it to MAC unfortunately because I've never tried it! You could get it anyway and if you don't like it just use it for days where foundation / amazing make-up isn't as necessary? I do know of people who use high-end foundations and have liked the Rimmel one though, probably worth googling it :)

  7. How weird just recently I found this exact set in the back of a drawer - I was given it a few Christmases ago and I'd never used it, I love the bubblegum pink shade now though!
