Benefit Eye Wanna & Eye Gotta Shadow Palettes for September 2011

By | August 5 2011 | 20 Comments

If you missed out on those gorgeous super-limited and uber hard to get Sunday Funday and Scene Queen Palettes which were a Brown Thomas exclusive here and which whizzed out of the shop before you could say “oh my jaysis,” then read on.

Landing in September, exclusively at Debenhams stores if you don’t mind, are two boxfresh kits from the new Benefit siblings on the block, Annie and Maggie. Eye Gotta! and Eye Wanna! are €39.50 each and you can see ‘em above. The price differential seems to be a bit better with this pair than it has been – the Sterling price is £28.50 or about €33, so while the Euro charge could be a little lower, it’s not so bad. Could it be … can we really hope … that Benefit have been listening to our Sean Nos style Irish Mother of the Sorrows Roisin Dubh-style we-have-no-money wailing?

Back to the makeup. Those pictures above are no good! We need to go BIGGER.



Eye Gotta! is Annie’s kit and it has three new shadow shades in Canopy, Purple Haze and Spiced as well as two new Creaseless Cream shadow/liners in Foiled and Flash. Not having seen these in the flesh yet, I don’t know what exact sizes the products are – but I’m guessing you’re looking at a scale-down from full for the Creaseless Creams, as is Benefit’s wont when it comes to the kits. Pretty colours, eh?

And this is Eye Wanna!, Maggie’s shade selection. Again, all colours are new and we’ve got shadows in Skyline, Inked and Deco plus two Creaseless Cream shadow/liners in static and airbrush.

I’m eager to get a look at these when they hit counters. And I know we have a ravening horde of Benefit fans as readers – so girls, which one’s your fave? Eye Wanna!? Eye Gotta? Or do you kinda sorta wanna and gotta have ‘em both?
