Benefit's Away We Glow Set

L-R: Passion Pearl, Peachy Sheen, Terracotta Satin, Steamy Copper and Deep Bronze. With CORALista underneath.

For Christmas I received this Away We Glow Benefit makeup set from my parents, and today's post is going to be an overview of all the products with little reviews. There are 5 individual items and 5 eyeshadows in this set, but my favourite product is probably the CORALista blush!

BAD Gal Lash Mascara
This is quite a volumising and lengthening mascara, and it lasts really well on my lashes. It does have quite a dry formula, but it's very buildable. I really love using it with my Magnifibres, it's such a great combo!

Life On The A List Lip Gloss
I tend to be more of a lipstick kinda girl, but recently I've been getting more and more into using glosses. This is a really pretty pink gloss and it tastes amazing! It lasts really well and isn't at all sticky!

CORALista Blush
I think this subtle shimmery blush, looks great blended all over the cheeks. I love how it looks alongside bronzer, as it really helps warm up my face. It lasts really well on my skin and is really quite pigmented.

In my makeup collection the product I probably have most of is eyeshadows. I've certainly tried quite a few in my time, and these are one of my favourites! The shades are really pigmented and creamy, but they blend very well to create a neutral smokey eye.

High Beam
I've spoken about this product so much, I don't think you need me to waffle on about its gloriousness anymore. So I'm just going to say: Beautiful highlighter. Lasts all day. Perfect. That is all.

Sun Beam
Although I use High Beam all the time, I'd never really had much of an interest in Sun Beam. Specifically because I thought it wouldn't work well with my skintone. But alas, I was wrong. This is a really golden warm highlighter that lasts all day. The pigmentation is lovely and I can't believe I hadn't tried this sooner.

Have you tried any of these products?
