Benefit Feelin' Cheeky! Minis (Review & Swatches)

Hey guys!
So on my August favorites post one of my readers requested for swatches of Benefit High Beam. I decided to do swatches and review this benefit set.

Available only at Sephora for $15 USD. Has 3 mini bottles of the Benefit Posietint, High Beam, and Benetint. I bought it because I have always been curious about Benetint and Highbeam, but since they are expensive ($29 e/a full size bottle) I just never tried them.

Swatches Posietint, High Beam, Benetint

Swatches blended.
So this is how my face looks without Highbeam. Very dull and not glowy at all.
I only apply 3-4 dots on the highest points of my cheekbones and 2 on my nose... and blend with my fingers.
Now my skin is glowing!!

So my individual review
Posietint: Is a poppy pink. It has a gel-like texture. This shows up really nice on my skin, it gives me a natural flush. On my lips it is very drying, even if I apply lip balm beforehand. So I like this one. Long wearing. The downside is that it has to be blended very quickly otherwise it will just leave stains on your cheeks.

High Beam: Holly grail material here!!, it's an iridescent white with pink shimmers, very lovely. it gives a beautiful healthy glow. Like Posietint it's a gel-like consistency. Last all day long!

Benetint: So when I first saw it I thought "liquid blood", it's a rose almost red color. Unlike the previous two this is the only that has a liquid consistency, and also the only one that has smell. It smells like roses. I have to say this is my least favorite one of the set. It doesn't show up on my NC25 skin. It's also very drying on the lips, and it just looks like it drank kool-aid and stained my lips with it. Same with Posietint, it has to be blended once you apply it.

Hope you guys enjoyed!

Itty Bitty Sephora Haul

Hi Guys.

About a month ago I went to Sephora to buy the Benefit Feeling Cheeky Set, and the cashier gave me a coupon of 10% off my next purchase!!! The reason is that when I became a VIB they never gave me the discount coupon so it was still available to me.

So I only bought 3 items because I had to buy textbooks, and my car needs new tires. So here they are!

Shiseido Pureness Balancing Softener- $24

Purchased this as a backup. If any of you have watched me on Youtube for a while you'd know that I love this product, and it's holly grail material. This is alcohol free, which is rare in toners. Alcohol based toners usually dry up the skin, and this one doesn't. I could just put this on and no moisturizer and my skin will stay very soft. The reason I keep buying it despite the price tag is that I do notice that it controls the oil in my face, usually when I stop using it I will have little breakouts, but once I start using them they go away!

Korres Buttered-Up set in Pomegranate- $15I have heard amazing things about the Korres Lip butters so when I saw this set basically buy one get one free i decided to try it, and i love the color of this. I't a coral color that will suit most skintones. It is very moisturizing and long lasting.

NARS Orgasm/Laguna Duo- $40 Only have two words for this. Overhyped and Overpriced! I returned this, was just too glittery!
