Where to buy:

Overall Opinion:

  • Dandelion –  This was too light to me. O_O I don’t quite get how pale you must be if you want to show this at all.
  • Bella Bamba –  Superpretty blush, one of my new favourites!
  • Erase Paste – This was too dark (well, pink/orange) for me, so I haven’t really used it. It seems to be quite opaque, but
  • Benetint – I don’t quite get these. They seem to stain instantly, how do you apply them to you cheeks? I can use these on lips, but not really on cheeks.
  • Posietint – See above.
  • Ooh La Lift – This claims to give you an instant eye lift, but I haven’t seen any effect.
  • High Beam – Beautiful highlighter, maybe a bit too cold shade for me, I hope Moonbeam would work better.
  • That Gal – Nice primer, makes skin smoother, but doesn’t work or “slide” as well as Porefessional.
  • The Porefessional – This I love. If makes my skin so smooth. I NEED fullsized version of this!
Overall I think this set is great if you want to try several products from Benefit, but don’t want to buy the full-sized products.
