Packaging Gripe/extended break from studying

I've formed a not so nice opinion about Benefit over the years because I don't like how they approach their customers/their sales schtick.

I had a rather annoying experience dealing with Benefit years ago when I was grabbed by the arm, dragged to the counter and had some sort of glowy bronzing thing slathered on me. I'm sure if you've ever been around a Benefit counter you'll know what I'm talking about.

Still I wanted to give Benefit a chance so I'm rather glad I won a couple of their products *Thank you again Mara!*

I had heard a lot about this specific Benefit set and how sometimes there would be a problem with the creaseless cream eyeshadow/liner drying out in the pot. I was a bit worried about this so when I got the wee set I checked to see if the lid was on tight and it was, yet this is what greeted me when I opened it.

I'm not sure if it's that apparent in the photo but the eyeshadow is basically separated from the sides. I can still use it of course but it is bothersome.

I mean I really like it and it isn't too dried out but since I don't own a full size version I can't tell what the texture is like normally. I love the color and I love the entire concept of the set it came in but damn Benefit get your stuff together!


  1. That sucks! At least it was something you got in a giveaway. I don't have any experience with Benefit products, any maybe thats a good thing!

  2. @The Peach I actually really like the Erase Paste that came along with the kit. I wasn't sure that I would because it's so peachy colored but it's perfect!
