Early Christmas Surprise - Icy Cups & Best of Benefit!

It seems my team at work know me so well, as this week I received a lovely surprise early Christmas gift from them in the shape of a tub of Icy Cups (utterly amazing childhood sweets) and this Best of Benefit kit.... 
The kit is in a gorge pink box with a ribbon to pull out the tray containing the goodies: 6 Benefit minis including 2 shades of Boi-ing concealer and the best selling They're Real Mascara which I already have in full size, so this'll be perfect for my handbag. There's also a voucher in there for a makeover at my nearest Boots Benefit counter...although I think I've mentioned my phobia of having my makeup done in shops previously (given that I used to do it myself) so I'm not sure I'll use that yet.
I do love the branding of Benefit but I find some of the products a bit 'blah'. I don't find the cheekstain anything to write home about and I only used the That Gal primer for one day as it made my face look like I'd smeared it in butter. On the other hand, I've become increasingly addicted to The Porefessional, and the Big, Beautiful Eyes kit has been in staple in my cosmetic case since I got it.
I * think* this kit was exclusive to Boots, and it doesn't look like it's available anymore, boo :(  However I have noticed quite a few other fabulous Benefit gift sets which I'm hoping might go on sale after Christmas so I can try out a few more products.
What are your fave Benefit bits? Anything you'd recommend?
