Verdict

This is the perfect kit to take on holiday with you as it contains all the products you need to create a bronzed look in small travel sizes. 

This is my first experience with one of Benefit's cream eyeshadows and I was skeptical about their creaseless claim, but after wearing Bikini-tini for a good 12 hours, and on a really hot day too, it still looked perfect and crease free! The Thanks A Latte eyeshadow is the perfect crease colour and the powder is good quality with no fallout.

Hoola is now my favourite bronzer! I had been put off using bronzers for a while after try a few very unattractive orange/brown disasters, if only I had tried this bronzer years ago. The brush picks up the perfect amount of powder to create a gorgeous, subtle tanned look in just a couple of sweeps. I use this for subtle contouring by sucking in my cheeks and sweeping the powder from the hollows upwards towards my ears.

Watt's Up is a creamy highlighter that is just so easy to use and really effective. Until now I had been spending much longer blending in liquid highlighters, but this can be applied easily and blended quickly. It is a champagne colour with beige tones which look especially flattering on slightly tanned skin, making this ideal for summer.

If you've read my blog before, you've very likely already seen a post where I'm raving about They're Real mascara; I love it so much! This is my perfect mascara as it separates, thickens and lengthens my eyelashes in a way no mascara has ever matched! 

Finally to finish off your bronze look; Hoola Ultra Plush lipgloss. This shimmering, sheer, golden tinted nude is the perfect complement for many summery makeup looks as it gives a pretty, super glossy finish without being too heavy.
