Last week while scrolling through Instagram, I spotted a photo on the Benefit Cosmetics Ireland page, a photo of a cute little mint green bag, and the caption underneath explained you could win of ten little kits. Anyway, I entered the competition and was lucky enough to win the ‘Best Night Ever Kit’ which arrived in the post today.
This is the box that the postman delivered, how cute is it?! I love Benefit’s cute and quirky designs. This is a little suitcase shaped party themed cardboard package, which contained my prize inside!
Inside was the Best Night Ever Kit, in which Benefit have teamed up with Pinch Provisions to bring you the perfect party essentials kit, filled with mini products to help you survive any fashion or beauty emergency that you may face on a night out! The little green and gold bag is teeny but surprisingly roomy, it fits 11 essential products inside, yet is compact enough to pop inside even the smallest of clutch bags!
The contents include a mini size of The Porefessional Pro-Balm (you can read my recent rave review here) a compact mirror, a hairbrush/comb, some bobby pins, a hair tie (one of those fantastic soft ribbon versions that won’t snag or leave a dent in your hair, good work Benefit!), hairspray, breath freshening drops, a deodorant towelette, double sided tape and a pair of foldaway flat shoes; which I’ve tried on already, they’re surprisingly comfy and will come in handy on those 3am walks home!
I think it’s such a great little kit to carry in your handbag to help you through any mini-crisis! I’m going to pop in some plasters, lip balm and paracetamol, and leave it in my handbag to cover any possible emergencies that may arise. It arrived at a great time, as I’m going away for the weekend, so I’m sure this will definitely come in handy!
Unfortunately this is not currently available for purchase, but I thought I’d share it with you as some inspiration for what to include in your own mini ‘essentials kits’ to create and store in your own handbags. You should keep an eye on Benefit Cosmetic’s different social media channels, as they are always doing great giveaways, so this kit may make another appearance in some competitions!
