Being married, I’m gonna wager a guess that I wasn’t in Benefit’s target market for the Overnighter Set ($38).
Designed for life’s “unexpected sleepovers,” (I think the technical term is booty call, haaay) it comes with four pieces of mini-makeup and a cute pair o’ drawers.
Even the happily betrothed/attached can still appreciate a cute pair o’ drawers.
Speaking of drawers, these are frilly black and magenta and made by Hanky Panky. If you’ve never heard of Hanky Panky before … you need to remedy that ASAP, girl. I think they make the most comfortable bum floss EVER! They’re one of those gifts that keeps on giving.
This set is all about flirty wordplay. Take the Justine Case (“just in case,” get it?), for example, designed to keep all your booty call booty safe and sound, LOL! — perfect for the single and ready to mingle.
But what about the makeup?
From left to right: California Kissin’, Eyecon, Benetint, Some Kind-a Gorgeous
- California Kissin': This minty, shimmery, sheer blue gloss is supposed to vanquish dragon breath and whiten teeth in one fell swoop! I didn’t really notice a difference in the color of my teeth, but I do like the minty taste and moisturizing formula. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
- Eyecon: Benefit says this lightweight eye cream fades dark circles, instantly brightening eyes and softening the appearance of fine lines. I like the texture, but I’ve been using it for a week and haven’t really noticed a difference (granted, a week may not be long enough to see the intended results). Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
- Benetint: This liquid, rose-colored cheek and lip tint is an old school favorite of mine. Blending three dots on my cheek bones with my fingertip creates a pretty flushed pink cheek that lasts all day. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
- Some Kind-a Gorgeous: I like the sheerness and the smooth texture of this sheer, cream-to-powder foundation. It evens skin color and eliminates redness, but the color’s just a touch too light for me to use all over my face. I do like it, though, around my eyes, to hide dark circles and to brighten up the eye area. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
A Fun Stocking Stuffer for Your Single BFF
My friend Cindy asked me to get her a hot surfer dude for Christmas. I’m gonna try my best, but if I come up short she’s getting the Benefit the Overnighter set instead. It’s a fun, cheeky holiday stocking stuffer — another great gift idea from Benefit.
