'Get your "goddess" on with this total bronze kit for eyes, lips and cheeks. Filled with sexy bestsellers, this TAN-talising box of beauty has all you need to get out there and glow for glory.'
Much like my jewellery collection, my makeup collection is refined and not overly sizeable. I see no reason in buying cheap drugstore products in the knowledge that they will never be used. So instead, I stick to my favourite high-end items and do not venture into the disastrous rainbow realm of dodgy lipsticks and glittery blushes.
However, recently, I have been searching for a new bronzer to add to my collection. In my search for a 'not-too orange' bronzer, I discovered this beautiful box on Asos. (I receive £100 worth of vouchers a month for some work that I am currently doing, meaning that I am able to experiment with new things, knowing that I have lost nothing if I don't get along with the products particularly brilliantly.) This is one of three kits brought out by Benefit last year, with travel sized miniatures to create a variation of different looks. These include the 'Primping with the stars' kit, the 'Do the bright thing' kit and the 'Bronze of Champions' kit. Other than the highly reputable 'Hoola' bronzer, I wanted to test out the 'Watts Up' highlighter and the 'Bikini-tini' cream eyeshadow that came in my set. In all, the set includes:
The box arrived three days after purchase. I recommend buying it off Asos if you're interested in it, as Asos are always fantastic in delivering in good time and keeping your order in excellent condition. The makeup has been presented beautifully, with the bronzer and the powder eyeshadow loose and the rest in the American-Retro, ultra stylised packaging one would expect from the fun and flirty Benefit. Below is a black and white photograph of the kit which I posted on my Instagram (SOPHIAALEXANDRASTANCER) upon its arrival.
At £26.50 for everything, each item would technically cost £4.41 each, which - when considering the amount of product attainable from each tube or pot - is actually a great bargain! I have used this set three times now to create a glowing look paired with my Studio Fix fluid by MAC and my Chanel eyebrow pencil. Having carefully followed the instruction manual provided, it is also worth noting that the box has an integrated, sizeable mirror which is really helpful if you're on the go.
I'm really pleased with my 'Bronze of Champions' set and I recommend it to anyone looking inject a touch of Summer into their makeup routine.
