Christmas Gift Guide: Benefit Shimmer Shimmer Shake

Hey all!

With only 10 days to go until Christmas, it's time to put your skates on and whizz around the shops to finish up on all your shopping and gift buying. If, like me, you're still lagging behind then it's time you turn to the trusty internet to get all those pressies delivered to your front door (if the snow doesn't delay it!)

The Shimmer Shimmer Shake set by Benefit is just one of many things that you can get delivered to your door in record time and is a fab little gift for a friend or sister or girlfriend.

The packaging is pretty simple yet colourful...


The blah-di-blah on the back...


What comes inside is three diddy little pigments...


(L-R) Ruby Doo (A gorgeous taupe-ish brown), Miss Moon (A shimmery ice white) and Mint Julep (A blue-ish turquoise with teeny tiny gold shimmers)
I love the little jars of sparkle and spangles.


The photo doesn't even show you half of the shimmer in there but they're so beautiful. They look very similar to MAC pigments/Barry M dazzle dusts but I found that these Benefit ones are much easier to work with and the colours are great for an all over lid shade or to add a bit of sparkle here and there :)

You will get fall out with them when you apply it but then what loose shadow/pigment don't you get fall out with?! Such is life! Lol.

The Benefit Shimmer Shimmer Shake set is reduced down to £18.00 from £27.00 on the Benefit website and is also available at all boutiques and counters.

I can't wait to have a play around with Mint Julep...!!!

Until next time...
