Today I finally have the review for the Benefit Finding Mr. Bright Kit. I already showed you some sneak-peek pics here *click*, and now I had enough time to try out all of these things and finally review them!
Let's get started, shall we?!
Benefit Girl Meets Pearl
Girl Meets Pearl is a pink fluid with a fine golden shimmer. It can be applied as a slight highlighter or all over the face. It illuminates the areas where you apply it and the slight shimmer kinda seems to make them look more even. The bottle in the kit contains 7.5 ml/0.25 fl oz. Benefit calls it a liquid pearl for the face, and that's true. The finish is a subtle glow, really pretty, and would match pretty much every skintone. It's pretty longlasting, but fades during the day, of course. It gives you a fresh and dewy appearance, too.
I think this might be my favorite product from the kit, and I don't think it gets the attention it deserves. All of the products in this kit are really well-known, but this one is the least popular...maybe a little underestimated?
PosieTint is pretty well-known, it's a Cheek and lip stain. To me, the formula is creamy while being liquid, and it's pretty pigmented. Benefit calls it a poppy pink color, but I'd rather say it's a bubble gum pink, but in a soft way. It's supposed to be tear-, weather- and water-proof, and that's true! When you apply it to your cheeks, you'd rather blend it out before it dries, or otherwise you'll end up with pink, hard-to-remove stripes on your cheeks :) The color's not really my kinda lipcolor, so I didn't wear it there, it was barely visible on my naturally dark lips. The bottle in the kit contains 4 ml/0.13 fl oz. The color lasts on my cheeks pretty long, almost all day.
HighBeam is a very very well-known and popular highlighting product, a liqiud one. It's a cool off-white color with a lot of shimmer in it which works for pretty much all skintones. It contains 2.5 ml/0.08 fl oz in the kit and has a little brush to apply it. It's perfect to highlight the basic spots on your face and it makes them glow nicely. It lasts pretty long, but kinda fades a little after a whilte. It makes you look really fresh and natural, because the shimmer particles aren't too big.

Benefit ErasePaste in Medium
ErasePaste is a very very creamy and opaque concealer. The color in the Kit is medium which is luckily light enough for my skin. The color's a little peachy, not a true skin-tone color, so it's perfect for bluish undereye circles. There it's pretty opaque and covers most of the dark cirkles. You only need a tiny bit because it's so creamy. The only thing I don't really like is that the creaminess makes it sticky. It has a weird feeling when you touch your eye when you have it on, a little gross. It's also not totally matte, which can be good because it doesn't enhance wrinkles. I'd almost say it has some light-reflecting particles in it, but I'm not sure about it. It contains 3.2 g/0.11 oz. and is pretty longlasting.
I hope this review helped you out! I do recommend this stuff, and the kit is a nice chance to try out all of these things in mini sizes. These "sample" sizes will go a long way, so this might be even better to get for some people. If you like the stuff, get the kit :) But if ErasePaste in medium is too dark for you, it's not totally worth getting it.
What do you think?
