I often lust over Benefit products, but I don't actually own much at all. In fact, other than the samples of the mascara I've acquired through various beauty boxes etc, the only thing I've purchased is the Girl Meets Pearl highlighter. I would love to try more but the prices really put me off. So when I saw the 'Do The Bright Thing!' kit on Strawberry Net for $22 I had to snap it up. This deal is over now but I wanted to share with you a stand out product in this kit...
It's about the size of a small paperback book. So cute and portable!
That Gal Brightening Face Primer
High Beam Illuminator
Bad Gal Waterproof Eyeliner
They're Real Mascara
To be honest, 95% of the reason I bought this was for High Beam. While it's only the mini size, I don't think it's possible to ever finish up an illuminator so it doesn't really matter to me. The mascara is also a plus because I use it a lot, in most of my FOTD/FOTN posts actually!
I haven't actually used the primer yet and I'm not totally sure how to use it. I'm wondering if it might leave me looking a bit pale. As for the blush, it shows up on me as a faint natural glow which can be built up. I feel it may not show up on darker skin tones. It swatches beautifully and feels silky so it can be built up without going chalky. And High Beam...OMG so pretty!! The applicator is a little unusual (nail polish brush) so I dab some onto my finger before applying. It is absolutely stunning.

How pretty does High Beam look in the light? I'm so in love!!
Overall I am quite glad I bought this kit. It's a great way for me to try out some Benefit products. While I may not use all of them, I'm very pleased with some of the items (can you guess which one is my fave?) so I will enjoy this! Next on my list to try is a Benefit boxed blush...maybe Rockateur...I'll have to keep an eye out for any sales!
Thanks for reading xx
