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!
