Benefit’s latest limited edition sets, which have just reached stores, are causing more than just a stir amongst the beauty crowds.  The beauty boxes, “Glitz, Glam and Gloss”, “Powderazzi” and “Celebutante,” are each enclosed in quilted designed cases alluding to Chanel clutches and filled with the best bits of Benefit. 

The “Celebutante,”  is an eight piece kit and contains everything you’d ever want in one bag.  Including high beam – a pink shimmer used to highlight areas of the face and body, benetint – a liquid red which is perfect for giving the illusion of a coquettish blush, lip gloss, lipsticks, eye shadow and two shades of blusher, not to mention brushes for applying too.

The “Glitz, Glam and Gloss,” holds three dual-headed shimmery lip glosses, ranging from gold and bronze through to violet and pink.  Less expensive than the “Celebutante,” they are the perfect size for putting in even the smallest handbag.

The last of the three is the “Powderazzi,” which is a selection of Benefit’s popular bronzers and blushers all in one case: Coralista, a pink/coral blusher, Dallas, a peach blusher and Hoola a bronzing blusher.

Every one of them makes the ideal gift, although these are definitely something that might not ever make your friend’s stocking in the end! And who said bad things came in threes…
