Benefit Most Glamorous Nudes
Benefit gift sets are always gorgeous, beautiful packaging, amazing products; I mean what more could you want? This particular set, Benefit Most Glamorous Nudes, was given to me for my birthday by my dad and step mum and I am loving it so much.
Benefit Most Glamorous Nudes
The packaging itself makes it look like a small book, (a small book containing the best content,) inside is housed four powder shadows and two cream. I, up until this point, had never tried any Benefit shadows I have no idea why! I had my eye on this set so I could try out their shadows and most have impressed. The cream shadows are in useful little screw top pots and the powder shadows are in a slightly less useful cardboard casing. The good thing is that once you've used the shadows you can take out the container and have a little keepsake box!
Benefit Eyeshadows
The powder shadows are Call My Buff, Kiss Me, I'm Tipsy, It's Complicated and Gilt-y Pleasure. Call My Buff is the only shadow that did not meet my expectation. I like quite a bold inner corner highlight but this is just too soft to achieve that. It is soft and easy to apply, just not a shade I'll use too much. Kiss Me, I'm Tipsy is a brown shade with orange and silver glitter. I know you're not meant to use shimmery shades in the crease but this works really well and can be used to define the lower lash line. It's Complicated is a gorgeous pink shimmer shade. It's almost iridescent in a way, such a silky shadow which makes application dreamy. Finally Gilt-y Pleasure, a pigmented, stunning gold. It is my favourite in the whole set, (high praise indeed,) I would buy this as a single if I hit pan.Benefit Cream Eyeshadows
The two cream shadows are Birthday Suit and My Two Cents. They have a gorgeous texture that applies so smoothly, these work great as stand alone shadows or as a base. My favourite out of the two is Birthday Suit as it is the perfect neutral shadow, and it's long lasting! This will be being worn on those days where I don't have enough time to do a complete eye look but still want something with a bit of wow factor. My Two Cents is a bronzy gold shadow which is also such a dreamy shadow to apply.


Overall this set is stunning, if you're new to makeup, experienced, anyone would love this! The range of neutrals are perfect for everyday wear and even nighttime wear so this set is a great all rounder. Have you tried this kit or any Benefit shadows? What are your thoughts on them?
