Haul of the Year! #MyBeneSecret prize pack from Benefit Canada
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… except this giant haul has NOTHING to do with Christmas and EVERYTHING to do with entering contests on Twitter! If you’re asking “What is this giant box full of products and how did Danielle get it?” Let me tell you my tale!
Being the Twitter addict that I am, last August I entered #MyBeneSecret â€” a Twitter contest run by Benefit Canada. In exchange for revealing one beauty secret to the world, I was automatically entered to win $1000 worth of products from Benefit’s makeup line! So I submitted my entry, and like all other contests on Twitter, instantly forgot all about it.
That is, until to weeks ago when I saw this.

Commence the freakout!
A week later I was the happy recipient of this giant box of goodies as seen above. They didn’t ask me any questions other than where I lived, so I wasn’t able to tell them what my skin tone was, but I’m pretty bloody impressed with this box of treats and have already given/earmarked a bunch to give away to friends and to trade.
Swatches/photos of the makeup to come, but here’s a list of what I’ve kept or gifted and what is up for grabs (buy/trade). Want to trade? Let me know in the comments!
