Benefit Cosmetics Mini products

I am one of those people who loves a sample product, whether it is a perfume, sachet of a lotion or potion, a bath product or even make-up.  Why do I like them so much? Well they are incredibly easy to shove in your make up bag, your handbag or for taking away on a long weekend break or even on holiday, most sample sizes are more than generous and give you just enough to decide whether or not you like it.

One brand who does the best mini samples is Benefit and I have quite a collection it would seem. Many of them have been part of a beauty box, Magazine Freebie or have been given to me in store when I've gone to stock up on numerous products I cannot live without.  This is my sample collection

As you can see, I have quite a few and for me, many of these samples have led to the purchasing of the full sized product. In my stash I have:
  • That Gal - A Brightening Face Primer which I use with my moisturiser to give it a bit of a kick.
  • Erase Paste - Brightening Concealer which is one of the best concealers I have used in such a long time.  This little tub has almost come to the end of its life which is sad, but I intend to refill it using my full sized version.
  • PoreFessional - Face Primer which is always in my handbag.  Whilst I do prefer the newer Porefessional Matte Primer, this one is great for on the go touch ups.

  • Coralista - A Coral Blush
  • Dandelion - A brightening face powder 
Both of these came from a Benefit Mini Set I have given but until a few weeks ago, I had forgotten all about them.  Both are brilliant for having in my handbag, especially Dandelion of which I am a huge fan.

  • They're Real and Roller Lash - Now I adore both of these mascaras but I prefer to use the wand of Roller Lash with the formula of They're Real, I just find it works better for me. I love both these little sample sizes which are more than generous at 30g to give you an informed view as to whether or not they are the mascara for you.

  • High Beam - satiny pink liquid highlighter accents cheek & brow bones for a dewy glow
  • License to Blot - Instant Oil Blotting Stick, which is an absolute gem of a product and one that is definitely handbag, desk drawer and make up bag worthy.
  • Lolli tint - Candy Orchid tint for lips and cheeks and it is a really cute shade of pink which works well with most lipsticks I own
  • Puff Off - Instant Eye Gel to help smooth the look of puffy eyes

  • Posietint - poppy-pink tinted stain for cheeks & lips and I find works well as a lip primer.
  • Stay don't Stray - dual-action power primer works 360 degrees around the eyes to make concealers and eyeshadows stay put
  • Benetint - The original rose-tinted stain for cheeks and lips
  • Ooh La Lift - under-eye boost looks like an instant eyelift! Contains raspberry extracts and light-reflecting pigments to instantly perk up tired eyes

As you can see, I have just about everything I need to ensure my make up is primed, set and not going to budge an inch.  Do you have any Benefit Mini's?

  1. I've always been tempted by benefit, but I'm never sure what to get, your selection of products seems great though, maybe I will give one of these a try :)

  2. Roughly how long do your samples last you? I am always tempted by the Benefit kits but always think they're pricey when you look at the size of the product. Having said that, High Bean has always been on my wishlist and I'd be super keen to invest if it last a while. Would you recommend?

  6. I didn't know benefit made so many samples! Perfect for popping in your handbag on a night out and like you say, a great tool for enticing customers to buy a full size product x

  8. I've not purchased any benefit make up in ages I think I need to get some samples to try out before treating myself to some new full sized items.

  9. I rarely wear make up but when I do I love benefit, I like the minis for taking on a night out x

  10. I haven't bought any Benefit samples, I think it's because I have that "Go big or go home!" outlook, so I always just want to standard version. However, I would love to try Benetint and the POREfessional (I've heard good things!)

  15. I totally agree with you, Benefit do miniatures so well. I've got quite a few of these ones here too. So handy. My current fave two Benefit products are Be Real mascara and Puff Off. I couldn't live without either right now. Tx

  21. I was literally having this conversation just a couple of days ago - I have so many Benefit sample products! They're so good for carrying around for touch-ups and I nearly always buy the full size product after trying them!
