Benefit Cosmetics: Beauty To Go Bestsellers

I ordered this product, or rather this benefit product sampler from the sephora website a little over a month ago.  It cost just 10 $ plus shipping. The shipping time was the worst I have ever experienced!  It took just under three weeks to get my products (I also ordered a sephora palette.)


At first I thought the samplers were super tiny until I realized all benefit products are pretty small to begin with.  To give you an Idea both the normal size posie tint and the sampler are both less then half an ounce, and the normal That gal primer is only about .11 ounces more then the sampler.


I had never tried benefit cosmetics before but I am SUPER impressed!


That Gal primer: I was most excited for and least impressed with this, I have pretty good skin and frankly this made no difference over or under foundation. It also made my face feel a little sticky and I dont usually even wear foundation or anything so it was just too much.


However I have been told that for people who have blotchier or more red in
their skin this will do wonders as it just evens and smooths it all right out.


Posietint: I really adore this for my cheeks it gives me such a natural glow I cant believe it. I’ve never tried the original version benetint but I don’t think I will like it as much because its darker. However if you have darker skin it might show up alot better. Either way I  don’t like it for my lips its just a bit too pink and makes my lips look more dry.


Highbeam: This product is great, I use it every day in my makeup routine now, the highlight just completes every makeup look I will def be buying again. The applicator in the sample is a spongey brush, but its usually like a nail polish brush.  It’s made to dot around the outside of your eyes in a half moon starting from above your cheekbone. You then blend it in and it just wakes up your whole face and makes you look flawless. 


Some Kinda Gorgeous: The best for last. I can’t believe I existed without this product until now! Its pretty sheer coverage but it just makes my skin dewy and even and gorgeous. It’s sort of a cross between a tinted moisturizer and a cream foundation, If you have bad skin you might want to look to something with a bit more coverage, or even wear this over top your foundation so you get the coverage and the dewy skin.
Frankly I love this, I get compliments constantly. I want to buy this in bulk for fear that they will one day discontinue it. 


Buying this was worth it just to try the foundation faker and the highbeam highlighter!  If you haven’t tried benefit before and are interested in doing so, head on over to, they also have a benefit stay put set I’m aching to try.
