Benefit Go Tropicoral Lip & Cheek Kit Gift Set


I was lucky to win this little set in a the DailyMix Birthday Giveaway and it was my first of the bigger Benefit kits. I had three of the smaller ones in the past (Just In Case, Smokin Eyes and another one I can't remember the name of). All of them were fab and I actually used most of the products up, back when I didn't own enough makeup to last me a lifetime :) haha. The new addition to my Benefit stash features some of my favourite shades and one of my most used highlighters, so I will get a lot of use out of the kit in Spring/Summer.

The set contains travel size 4 products: 

a 4ml Deluxe chachatint mini
a 4ml Deluxe high beam mini 
a 3g CORALista blush  
and a 6.5ml Ultra plush CORALista lip gloss
mini blush brush

I think you get a lot for your money, considering the price and quality of Benefit products and if you shop in Debenhams, you will be able to collect some points on your beauty card too. That's where I like to shop to save a bit of money on my beauty purchases. 


I love the colour of the Coralista blush, it is a nice subtle coral with a bit of shimmer and it doesn't look too orange. The liquid highlighter is a stunning pearl shade, with a hint of pink and it adds a lovely glow to the cheeks. The chachatint can be used as a lip or cheek stain and it provides a long lasting, vibrant colour. The last thing is the Coralista lip gloss, perfect if you like glossy lips with a wash of colour. You also get a little brush for applying the powder blush. You can see all the swatches below.

Left to Right: Coralista Blush, Chacha tint, High Beam highlighter, Coralista lipgloss


I really like this little set and I will probably buy it (or another colour option) in the future as birthday or Christmas presents. The packaging is cute and the products are lovely.

Do you own any of the Benefit sets? Do you think they are good value for money?

*I won this set in a giveaway

  1. I bought this back in summer and it was my first ever Benefit purchase too :). I absolutely adore it. I depoted the Coralista blush and placed it in my Unii palette but I think I will pick up a full size this spring.

  6. I've never bought one of their travel sets, but bought their It's A Love Fest tin set after Christmas! i love the Coralista blush and lipgloss, but have never tried Cha Cha Tint. I think the tint appeals to me most out of the whole set as it's something I've always wanted to try!

  11. The Benefit glosses are really nice IMO! Not too sticky or gloopy. The blush looks lovely!
