Benefit Advent Calendar Week 4

I've mentioned on twitter that I would be sharing weekly mini write-ups on the Benefit Countdown to Love advent calendar from this year. Every Friday, I have shared what was behind the doors that I have opened that week. Here is December 21st-24th! Can't believe it is over already! You can find the past posts here, here, and here.

I know many of you could not get your hands on this advent calendar, but all of these sample-sized products (aside from the necklace) can be bought from their permanent line in full sizes! I'll set aside the duplicate items of what I already own. Some of them are great to have in travel-size to take on trips, but I think I'll do a giveaway in the new year with a few of the others. Any of the duplicates are staying unopened and I'm swatching the ones I already own. So stay tuned!

Coralista Gloss
So much more pigmented than the others in the calendar! This shade isn't one that I normally would reach for. I'm not so much into coral colors, but it is pretty. I like the formula of these and don't find them to be that sticky.

Cha Cha Tint
A little too bright for my liking on the cheeks, but lovely on the lips if you enjoy a pop of color. I couldn't even get this off of my hand after swatching. It took a good amount of makeup remover and I still had a spot of orange. This stuff doesn't go anywhere once applied!

I really like this powder. It suits pale cool-toned skin and has a nice brightening effect. It's very light. You can pack it on as a blush or layer it over another blush, but I prefer to use it with a light hand as a finishing powder.

Gold Star Necklace
This is ok. I would not wear it as a necklack, but I would double it up and wear it as a bracelet paired with the other one from this calendar. I'm in the minority when I say that I loved the bobby pin and thought the bracelet was cute. I like that Benefit added a little extra glitz to the calendar and didn't stick to just makeup. I like variety!
