Benefit Feelin Cheeky set: Review and Swatches High beam, Posietint & Benetint


The Benefit Feelin Cheeky gift set contains small sizes (4ml/0.13fl.oz) of High beam luminescent complexion enhancer, Posietint poppy-pink tinted lip & cheek stain and Benetint rose-tinted lip & cheek stain.

As I said when I did the review of Benefits Tan about Town set I believe these sets are the best way to try out new products rather than shelling out for full-sized products.

The set is a Sephora exclusive and therefore is availble instore and online at Sephore. Being from the UK I bought this set from an American seller on ebay (watch out for fakes though)

High beam is a lovely highlighter! I was put off by highlighters when I bought Nars' Albatross and it made me look like shimmery rather than glowing however this highlighter is perfect! It gives you a natural glow to your cheeks which looks like natural light rather than glittery. I will be purchasing full-size of this product when this sample is finished.

Posietint is such a cute colour! It's a bright milkshake pink (that's what it reminded me of) it's thicker than Benetint and therefore easier to work with both on the cheeks and on the lips. I prefer using it on the cheeks though, when I applied this to the lips one coat wouldn't cover my lips pigmentation and rather than looking poppy-pink my lips looked dark pink, two coats worked perfectly though also a base such as MAC flesh pot could easily work underneath this product to blank out the pigmentation of your lips.

Benetint is a fake-blood red (again this was the colour which first springs to mind) this product really dissappointed me! the consistency is very watery and therefore it's really hard to work with on the lips! it settles into any creases and lines in the lips thus making them appear darker, it's a shame though because I've always shyed away from wearing reds however this tint is a red I'd be happy to wear bar it's poor quality. I tried to use the product on my cheeks however the colour really asn't flattering and it took me a long time to make the product work without being patchy.

So, overall I would re-purchase highbeam and would maybe repurchase posietint as a cheek stain. Benetint really isn't worth the hassle of having to make it work.
Did any of you get any of the Benefit gift sets this holiday period?
Any advise on what Benefit products are worth checking out?
