Benefit & LORAC Holiday 2014 Makeup Collections!

Continuing with our overview of the 2014 holiday makeup collections, today I’m showcasing offerings from Benefit & Lorac. I discovered the Benefit Holiday Sweet Shoppe Collection via their Instagram about a week or two ago, and instantly feel in love with their packaging, As usual, Benefit never fails to deliver on whimsy. I must confess, the first thing that drew me to Benefit so many years ago was their packaging, but I kept coming back for their products.

 LORAC, on the other hand, is sticking to their simple yet elegant packaging for their The Royal Collection. Of course like all smart beauty companies, they know that you won’t be just buying these gift sets for others, as they are must haves for the “Royal We,” or me.

Below is a list of both the LORAC and Benefit 2014 holiday collections, which are available now at Ulta, Sephora, department stores, online and at Benefit Boutiques.

Benefit Sweet Shoppe – packaged in cute candy themed boxes, each limited edition set feels like a street scene from your favorite holiday cartoons, such as Frosty Snowman. The collection features nine different sets, all at varying price points.
