Benefit Cabana Glama Set

Hey Everyone,
Today's post is a review of the Benefit Cabana Glama Makeup set I got for Christmas this year! I love Benefit I think they are a great brand, their packaging is always super cool, and their products are amazing!
 This set contains 4 Miniatures: 
Hoola bronzer (I have already reviewed HERE!)
Some Kind- A Gorgeous in Medium
and Eyeshaddow palette in Peach Fizz, Bronze Buzz, Cocoa Pizzazz
This is the perfect gift for any woman (or a treat to yourself) as it is everything you could want to complete a whole look, in a cute box.
First off the packaging as usual with Benefit is above and beyond funky! Its a bright card box, designed to look like an air mail package from a tropical destination! Great if like us in Ireland your in need of a bit of cheering up from the constant rain outside! 
Inside there is a large mirror on the flap lid and then compartments inside which hold the products, a small sponge applicator, and a brush for the bronzer (a miniature version of the brushes that come with their famous box blushes!)
I would say... I think I will get more use out of this set in the summer as it holds the kind of delicate natural shimmer shades I like to use at that time of year. Also the 'Some Kinda-A Gorgeous' product is in medium which is a little too dark for me, and so would suit be better in the summer when I'm less pale! 
Nevertheless this is still a fantastic set! The eye shadow's are slightly sheer but amazing colours, I would definitely suggest using a base/primer before applying them to get the best impact from them! As for Possietint I had wanted to try this product for a very long time, for me its not something I'd use on my cheeks anytime apart from spring,summer as it is pink flush type of colour. However an amazing pink tint  for the lips any time of year, it sets pretty quickly though so I would apply quickly to stop streaky marks! 

All in all a great set that I will be getting serious use out of in the coming spring/summer months! Benefit never disappoints and this is another example of how great their sets are as you get to try out their products before purchasing full size!

Have you tried any Benefit sets?


  1. Hoola bronzer looks like a great one for countouring. I've had a lot of people recommend it to me :) great little set! Definitely agree us brits/irish need a bit of sunshine in our makeup bags to combat the weather! haha x

    1. It really is good for contouring! We so do!! :) x

  2. The eyeshadows look really pretty and this seems like the perfect set to take away with you. I had Posietint in full size when it first came out and it's such a pretty colour.
