According to the Chinese zodiac, 2019 is the year of the pig and those born under that symbol are said to be energetic, enthusiastic and motivated. Definitely something to celebrate there (the downside is that pigs can be materialistic and unromantic). Several beauty brands have launched products for Chinese New Year including these money banks from Benefit containing three favourite Benefit products each.
They’ve even got little tails. I know that lots of people collect pig related items so these seem relevant whether Chinese New Year is meaningful for you or not. I’m really hoping that it’s not culturally insensitive – I can’t tell because when you look at merchandise pointed towards CNY, there are all kinds of things available.
Inside, the products are housed neatly and nicely and the selections are lovely.
For the red tin, You’re A Lucky Star, the contents are Goof Proof Brow Pencil Mini 3 (medium), Benefit Benetint Mini and Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara Mini. The gold tin, Fortune, Fun & Favourites contains The POREfessional Pro Balm Face Primer Mini, Gimme Brow Volumising Eyebrow Gel Mini 3 (medium) and GALifornia Face Powder Mini. The pink tin, Happily Ever Laughter, houses POREfessional Pearl Primer Mini, Dandelion Brightening Face Powder Mini and Benefit Ka-BROW Cream-Gel Brow Colour Mini 4 (medium).
My daughter, Lucy, keeps a money box (pound coins), as does my mum (five pence coins) so I have a special fondness for them and I might requisition one of these for myself. They’re £26.50 each which I think is a bit pricy but I’ve found them with 20% off at Escentual which brings them down to £21.30 (postage is about £1.50 but free over £30). Use code ESCENTUAL20 HERE.
