This little kit of mine...

A little while ago now, Benefit Cosmetics launched Cabana Glama, the brand's latest beauty kit containing lots of miniature essentials. Although I do not own this myself, it definitely looks like a great set to keep in your handbag for those quick 'sunkissed' fix-me-ups.

If there's one thing that Benefit knows how to do, it is creating make-up kits. I bought this bad boy - Realness of Concealness - back in 2010 when I went to New York. We were having a lovely meal in Times Square and decided to make a night of it, so naturally, myself and a couple of the girls headed to Sephora - my first time! - and shopped! After being in awe of all the lovely make-up and the products not available over here, I came out with Realness of Concealness and I still use it for nighttime make-up looks today. 

Well used as you can see! It contains Boi-ing: an industrial strength concealer, Lemon Aid: colour correcting eyelid primer, High Beam: luminescent complexion enhancer, Ooh La Lift: under-eye de-puffer and Lip Plump: a primer. The set also comes with a little 'How to Apply' leaflet so you can get the best of the products.

I will apologise now for the quality of the below images, I have had to use Photobooth on my Mac and for some reason the quality isn't too great? But anyway, I start by using Lemon Aid; put a small amount on your fingertip and pat gently onto your eyelid. Next, put three small dots of Ooh La Lift under your eye and blend.

Top: applying Lemon Aid Bottom: Applying Ooh La Lift

Result should be A: a lighter eyelid (right) B: bags less noticeable (right)
C: Overall, brighter looking eyes!

So then it's time for my favourite product in the kit, High Beam! Just like Ooh La Lift, apply small dots of the highlighter along your cheek bone and blend.

Hopefully you can see a bit of shine?

Now, I won't go into detail about the concealer and lip plump as, obviously, they are pretty self explanatory, but by the end, you should look that little bit more refreshed. Make sure you add a coating of gloss or lipstick though as lip plump on its own can get a little bit clumpy...

Cabana Glama is described as "the ultimate brightening and bronzing collection" and contains Hoola: bronzer, Some Kind of Gorgeous: foundation faker, Posie Tint: cheek and lip stain and an eye shadow palette - sounds ideal for enhancing your tan (or lack of as the case would be for me!)

With either of the kits, or even Confessions of a Concealaholic (another Benefit top seller), you can have a bit of each essential in a handy case. Even if you're new to Benefit and not sure where to start, you can get a pretty good feel for the brand.

Have any of you lovely readers purchased Cabana Glama yet? And does it compare to Benefit's previous sets?
