Benefit Show Stoppin Steal, steal at Ulta

Was at Ulta benefit brow bar when I eyed this 3 piece kit by Benefit. It includes one lipstick in Lady's choice, lipgloss in Wild Child, and eyeshadow in Dandy Brandy. All three are full-size (?) and only... $18! A steal or what, right? Usually each individual product costs $18. So, this is like buy one get two!? The colors are all usable and pretty.

The lipstick - Lady's Choice is a nice nude pink color that won't make you look sick! I've never owned a Benefit's lipstick before, but this is a creamy formula that won't make your lips feel dry or heavy.

The lipgloss - Wild Child is a shiny pink-violet gloss - goes on like lavender, but it's a bit sticky but quite long lasting, that is of course if you don't eat or drink. No hair stuck to my lips yet, but obviously it's never that windy in LA.

The eyeshadow - Dandy Brandy - a typical bronzy medium brown color. Very much like Snakebite in UDNP2, #9 in Clarin's The Essential Palette, and the medium brown in Chanel's Romantic Destination Palette. This is a velvety shadow that glides on smoothly. Color payoff much better than Chanel's (sheer) but not as intense as Snakebite. It's a lighter day time, less sparkly, in your face, brown shadow.

I purchased this last Wednesday, so it's almost been a week. Still available online at Ulta and probably in stores.
