Best Buy – ‘Cheekathon’ Benefit Cosmetics – Limited Edition


I got this limited ‘Cheekathon’ palette for my birthday last month and just had to share for any Benefit Cosmetics fan out there as I think this has to be one of their best sets yet. Benefit usually only release special offers around Christmas so this is one of their first summer offers and think it is one not to be missed! Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a big fan of this brand, I love their packaging and have some of their products as firm favourites in my ‘every day’ make up bag… I mean who couldn’t live without Hoola in their life!

So as soon as I saw this little beauty kit come up it had to go straight onto my birthday wishlist. For only £44.50 you get 5 FULL SIZE, yes FULL SIZE of their most loved powders in this beautifully packaged kit.

In the palette you get:

*Hoola (Full Size)

*Dandelion (Full Size)

*Dallas (Full Size)

*Rockateur (Full Size)

* CORALista (Full Size)

+ mini power brush and mirror in the kit


Cheekathon Palette

Benefit’s website say that the 5 shades suit all skin tones and is a mixture of pinky shades, more shimmery tones and then the famous and best selling bronzer Hoola. Hoola is one of a few of my must repeat purchases, every time I hit pan I am straight away looking to repurchase, it gives a very natural ‘just been in the sun look’ and is very build-able and works for me all year round.

Considering that just one of these powders can sometimes retail for around RRP £23.50 then this gives this palette a massive £75+ saving!

The ‘Cheekathon’ palette by Benefit cosmetics is one of my best buys (was actually a gift, thanks Mum!) of the year. With a lot of people turning to Z palettes as a way to store all of their make up into easier to travel with packaging this gives you everything you need without having to destroy any of the packaging… if you hate seeing people destroy packaging then look away now…

Here is a video of Benefit’s Head Make Up Artist Lisa Potter Dixon showing you how to take apart Hoola for a Z palette. With this ‘Cheekathon’ palette you do not need to worry about a thing and it is ideal for travelling or for make up artists who have to carry a big kit around.


Here are some links to a few places where you can purchase the palette:,default,pd.html

Also a ‘Poppy Recommends’ tip for any other Benefit loving girls and guys out there, always check out QVC as I always find they regularly do big bundles with a lot of discount and they usually also do something called ‘Easy Pay’ which basically means that you can pay for the bundles over 3 monthly instalments, no sign up or anything is needed.

Also if you are student, UNIdays usually have 10% off at , House of Fraser and Boots.

I would definitely recommend this palette as it is a great way to try all the shades for a fraction of the price!

    Oh No! Don’t like the idea of destroying all the packaging. I’ m sure the blushers will get broken in process ( especially if l did it). Don’t even get me started on what Lisa Potter Dixon did to the lipsticks! Hell, l just bought an EL lipstick for the beautiful gold case!
