Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot - £29.50

Welcome to a beauty review of what has to be one of the prettiest Christmas gift sets of 2014. Cue Benefit and their brand new Sweet Shoppe range which has lots of gifts to choose from, all for great value. The gift set that stood out for me the most this year was 'Cheeky Sweet Spot'. This gift set (which I treated myself too, oops!) includes a whopping six blushes/bronzers as well as a highlighter and a brush. I am delighted with this gift set as it gives me six different varieties to choose from with only having to pay the price for one full sized blush. Seeing as it's a gift set, it's not practical enough to carry around and top up on the go but it's perfect for keeping at home and deciding which one you fancy using today.
You can see from the images just how beautifully Cheeky Sweet Spot comes packaged, a metal tin in its sweet shop home. The set retails at £29.50, which I think is such good value considering the different products I got to try out and also have the novelty of the gorgeous packaging and buying myself a Christmas gift. The set includes Dandelion, Bella Bamba, Sugar Bomb, Hoola, Coralista, Rockateur and Watt's Up. All the powders are really easy to blend and apply, so here are my individual thoughts on each one.
Dandelion: One of my new favourite blushes! It's a cute ballerina pink powder which can be used as a blush or for an all over radiant look. It's a really subtle shade, giving me definition but without that dreaded too much blush look. I was also really impressed with the staying power of Dandelion.
Bella Bamba: A 3D watermelon blush which is laced with gold undertones. It's still a subtle shade which is pretty much essential for me when it comes to a blush. It gives me a lovely glow and a little shimmer.

Sugar Bomb: A face powder which has four different shades that can be used individually or swirled  together. The shades are of peach, plum pink and rose powders. It's perfect for a super quick rush of colour.

Hoola: One of my all time favourite bronzers. Hoola is a brilliant matte bronzer, perfect for contouring and creating bronzed cheekbones. I always pull this out when I need a hint of sunkiss.

Coralista: A really cute coral blush, perfect for adding definition to cheekbones and brighten up the skin tone. There's no shimmer in this one!

Rockateur: A rose gold cheek powder perfect for cheeks and cheekbones. It gives a healthy flush, a natural look and brightens up my skin.

Watt's Up!: I'm really getting into my highlighters lately. This is a cream highlighter which gives a powder finish and gives a delicate glow. It's really easy to apply, I usually just pop it on my cheekbones quickly but it can also be used on the bridge of your nose and under the arch of eyebrows.

Have you bought yourself a Christmas treat yet? x
