I am aware that this palette is quite an old one from benefit, but it certainly is one to still impress. For an overview, the palette comes with four makeup products and two brushes, one for eyes and one for cheeks. On the lid, there is a large mirror which is big enough to do your makeup in if you are on the go.
Some Kind-a Gorgeous Foundation Faker
I still cannot believe that this is a foundation, on my skin it literally feels like I'm wearing nothing, which is good since I can't stand the feeling of product on my face. Yet, in the little box it comes in, the product was ever so oily, so I was thankful to find out that this is a cream to powder foundation and it mattifies extremely quickly. The shade which comes with the palette is medium, arguably a tad too dark for my relatively pale skin, but once I have touched up with a lighter concealer everything matches. However, I doubt I will ever purchase the full pot of this considering there are many alternatives/ dupes from the drugstore which are half the price of this.
Posietint Cheek and Lip Stain
This acting blush/lippy really is quite spectacular, I prefer it a lot more than my benetint and I feel like the lighter pink colour is a better match for my skin tone. The sample size is disappointingly quite small, but the colour pay off for this product makes up for this fact.
One of my favourite things in here is this bronzer, pretty much a beauty must have for any makeup-savvy. Everything from the colour to how easily it is applied, makes this bronzer my all time favourite. It is completely matte with no shimmer, and the colour intensity is not too hard which is very relevant when applying to your cheeks if you don't want harsh lines. I happen to have another Hoola bronzer sample, but when both run out I will be looking to splurge and purchase the full size.
The three colours within this palette are:
• Cocoa Pizzazz- a dark, chocolate brown colour with a hint of shimmer, which I tend to blend into my outer corner and crease• Bronze Buzz- a lighter, shimmery brown which I apply all over my lid
• Peach Fizz- a highlighting pink toned shadow which I also apply all over my lid
All three of these shadows have an amazing colour pay off and are very easily blended. These tones definitely create more of a natural, summery look compared to a harsh, smoky eye.
Overall, I am impressed with this palette and is one I will ensure is with me when on the move or on holiday etc. On a daily basis, I use the eye-shadows and bronzer, not so much the foundation or cheek and lip tint but they are nice add-ons to the palette. I think this set can be purchased at around the £20 mark, which isn't bad for four benefit products plus two brushes.
