Benefit Samplers Review

Safe to say I think I'm a bad influence on my mum (or a good one depending on how you looks at things) as I have been encouraging her to buy more and more make up lately. One of the things I coaxed her into buying was a lovely little sampler set from Benefit. 

 (Silly me forgot to photo the box it came in)

This includes a very generous sample of Posie Tint, a sample of Bad Gal Lash mascara and a sample of the Porefessional primer. I have tried the Porefessional primer previous to this so I don't feel the need to go on about it but you can read my review here

So first up is the Posie Tint. This is a great multi-tasker as it's a lip and cheek stain. The pigment isn't overly strong which is great if you want something subtle, don't worry though because it is also quite buildable if you want a bit more of a pop of colour. 

I am a little hesitant to use on on my cheeks as you need to work super fast with it otherwise you will end up with a massively concentrated splotch of colour and not much everywhere else. Give me time and I'll get back to you all with a proper demo :)

Ahhh this has to be my favourite thing about this sampler box. I was left under-whelmed by Benefit's They're Real! mascara (I just didn't agree with the formula or applicator) but this totally surprised me. The wand is very reminiscent of the Smashbox Full Exposure mascara that I love so much and the formula is a total winner too! It wasn't flaky or crumbly and it really help to volumise and lengthen my piddly little lashes. 

I definitely will consider buying the full sizes to these products because it was such an awesome little kit to buy. Unfortunately I don't know the name of the kit but it was in Boots cost around £9.50 (bargain!)

Have you tried any of these? What Benefit products would you recommend?

  1. I've never tried any of these, but I'm always looking for a fabulous mascara. I'm also hesitant to use cheek stain because I usually look like a rosy-cheeked doll. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼

  2. Love the Benefit products! I love their foundation and it match well with my skintone :)
