Benefit Peek-a-Bright Eyes Illuminating Kit Review

Benefit are really pushing the boat out recently with their little 'how to' kits and i have to say i love them all. I have a few to share with you over the coming weeks but when the Peek-a-Bright Eyes Illuminating Kit* landed on my desk my eyes lit up and i knew i had to share this little beaut with you first. 

Lets just start with the most amazing packaging!!! We all know Benefit are renowned for their fun, quirky and girly packaging and that's why a lot of us out there love Benefit but this packaging is really something special. The fun sparkly holographic-ness is just everything i want to be able to show off a beauty product or even display on my dressing table and this for sure takes pride place up top instead of hidden away in my draws. I just love it..have you ever seen packaging like it?? Well done Benefit its truly stunning.

Right so now my love for packaging is well and truly out there lets get onto the products themselves.

The Peek-a-Bright Eyes Kit includes everything you need to illuminate tired eyes, this is something i am always desperately trying to battle with..working shift work and crazy hours like 4:30am means my already incredibly dark circles are not helped with the lack of sleep and waking up at crazy o clock so this little kit literally has everything i need to quickly perk up my eyes when i am getting ready at 3 am. I just love that everything is also in one place, everything i need to battle my dark circles is in one amazing kit because lets face it who wants to be searching around for a million different products that early in the morning?!

There are three gorgeous eye-shadow colours in the kit, a light shimmer base colour, a contouring dark brown shade and the perfect nude again for brightening. Not only does it have 3 amazing brightening eye-shadows it comes with an Eye Bright which is a pink cream formula which again is fantastic for brightening under the eyes..i have loved the pencil version of this product for years. Now that's not all, it also includes two brushes a concealer brush and a double ended eye-shadow brush for all over colour and lining the eyes too.

Isn't it just ever girls dream? A palette with gorgeous neutral shades which also brighten the eyes!

The eye-shadows are so creamy, pigmented and easy to work with and blend. I can't really comment on how well they last as i have super oily eyelids so i have to use a primer, so with that the majority of eye-shadows i wear will stay put all day.

This really is such a great everyday kit and also the most perfect kit for travelling, its the perfect size so wont take up too much space and has literally everything you need inside.

Peek-a-Bright Kit for sure gets a huge thumbs up from me!! Thank-you Benefit for giving me the perfect product to help banish those damn bags at 3 in the morning, you really are a life saver.

You can buy this kit online now and in stores for £24.50
