Benefit Cosmetics Collectable Holiday Gift Sets

In my opinion it's never too early to get started on Christmas shopping. When I received these these holiday gift sets I immediately began to build excitement for the holidays.. I know it's not even Halloween yet but I can't contain it! This holiday collection includes 6 gift sets, and one 12 day advent calendar. The theme of their sets this year doll-like girl empowerment, I'm definitely into that and the cartoon characters are definitely a unique packaging scheme. I was very surprised by the price on these, for how much product you get they're a great price. It would be hard not to pick one up for myself when buying them as a gift, they're the all in one gift package for a makeup lover. 

Sassy Lassie - around $35 and exclusively sold at Sephora this kit contains THREE full sized products and comes in a collectable tin. This gift set is filled with Benefit's best selling products Roller Lash, The POREfessional, Ka-BROW!, and a mini Hola bronzer with a brush (hardly a mini, it'd take me months to get through that much product). 

Girl-A-Rama - around $45 and sold exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart this little tin is packed full of products. The kit contains all items necessary for a full-face makeup look including a full sized They're Real! Duo ShadowBlender in Brazen Bronze with applicator, and travel sizes of POREfessional, Roller Lash, Benetint, and CORALista & Rockateur blushers with a brush. The only thing that I dislike about this is though I can remove the blushers and eyeshadow they don't come in packaging to come out and throw in a makeup bag.. but this is common for all gift sets. 

Girl O'Clock Rock - around $56 and sold exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart, this is a 12 day advent calendar loaded with minis! For photo purposes I opened three doors and they contained Dandelion blusher, They're Real! mascara, and Ultra Plush Lipgloss in Lollibop. I doubt I will make it to December 12th to start opening doors, I'm not sure how anyone would wait to open them at all! I don't think this necessarily needs to be an advent calendar, if you give it as a gift it'd just be fun to pop open the doors and see what's inside. I will also add when you open the doors the box sings to you, it was a bit scary at first!

Let me know below if any of you will be buying a kit for yourself or as a gift! Also - what do you think of their packaging this season?
