Stays and stays!

This is one of my favourite Benefit products - I can't believe that my concealer and eyeshadow stay all day! I recieved a sample in a Benefit order and loved it so much that I bought the full sized primer the following day! It smells wonderful (like carmel) and goes on smoothly. In addition to using it as an eye primer, it covers blemishes if applied under liquid foundation and I use it instead of concealer. The only thing to watch out for is the pump - when I puchased mine it took a while for the pump to work (100 or so squirts before anything came out) and it doles out more primer than I use. However, this is an amazing product and I will definitely re-purchase!
Loved that it's better than concealer, stays all day

Gorgeous foundation with limitations

I recently recieved a 'deluxe sample' in the 'All Decked Out' beauty kit and was excited to try it! The texture is simply gorgeous - very silky and smooth. Unfortunately, this product only comes in 3 shades and my tone is between lite and medium. To use one shade alone, I have to really blend the foundation in, which gives poor coverage. My foundation also had an unpleasant chemical, plastic smell - ick. I love the texture, but I would not buy this product again because of the smell and limited shades.
Loved that it's silky smooth, lovely texture

This is my favourite cheek tint! I absolutely LOVE the pink colour - it looks very natural and fresh. I wish there was a better application method; I have to blend Posietint very quickly end up with pink fingers. However, I much prefer the gel formula of Posietint to the watery formula of Benetint. I use Posietint on my cheeks under sugarbomb and on my lips under lip gloss and the colour really stays all day! I bought it in the "sweet-n-wow" beauty kit and will definitely be purchasing this cheek tint again and again and again!
Loved that it's pink, natural, amazing, lasts all day, gel formula, not watery

I was very excited to try this Benefit classic! I love that you can choose the colour intensity by reapplying for your perfect colour. The stain gives you a very natural flush that lasts for hours. The rose fragrance is gorgeous. However, I wish there was a better application method - my fingertips end up the same colour as my cheeks and lips. I really like this product and will certainly use mine up!
Loved that it's rose scented and coloured, lasts for hours, gives you a natural flush

I recieved this as a sample in an order and was disappointed. Although the texture of the foundation was lovely, I found the formula chalky. I used a sponge to apply the formula and was not satisfied with the coverage - I could still see acne scars. My skin is not dry, but the foundation was visibly powdery on my skin and looked caked on. I think this product is suited to people with very oily skin, but it is not the foundation for me.

Silky smooth primer!

I love this primer! It has an incredibly silky, smooth texture and a great scent - lemony/fresh. It mattifies my skin and reduces the appearance of pores. After applying Porefessional, my skin feels amazing and soft. This is a great primer with a fabulous texture. Yay for Porefessional!!
Loved that it's silky, Smooth, smells great, matte

Best blush ever!

This is my favourite Benefit product yet! I love that the blush has four different colours so you can customize your look - either peach, plum, pink, rose, or a combination. I also use the peach and plum shades as a highlighter/combo duo, and the rose and pink shades to set my lip colour. The brush that comes in the box is great - it dusts just the right amount of blush onto your cheeks.The texture of the blush is lovely and the fragrance is divine. There is just a hint of shimmer in the blush which gives a natural glow. I will definitely be buying this again and again!!
Loved that it's shimmery, gives a natural glow, smells great, silky

When I saw this online, I couldn't believe the price - $32 for a full sized Porefessional and Benetint, plus a sample sized SKG!! I bought it because it was a great deal and wanted those products, but was pleasantly suprised by the lovely packaging design. My only complaint is that SKG only comes in Medium..... However, I plan on buying several more of these sets for my friends (and myself) when the Christmas season rolls around!
Loved that it's great value, has full size products

Love it!!! I was initally looking to purchase sugarbomb, but found this kit instead - for an extra dollar you get posietint as well as sugarbomb! The packaging is really cute and the products are awesome! Posietint looks great as a pink lip tint or cheek tint. Sugarbomb is definitely my favourite blush - I love the subtle shimmer and how you can customize the colour to suit your skin tone. I will be purchasing this again!
Loved that it's a sweet deal

Beauty kit?

Any ideas why this is in the "beauty kits" section? Does it come with another product, or is there something up with Benefit's website?

Does the mini fundation include sponge?

Does the mini fundation include a sponge? Is it the same one with the $9 travel size?
Hi Leslie! Unfortunately, the mini foundation does not come with a sponge (unless mine was defective...). Fortunately, SKG can easily be applied using your fingers and blends well! Also, if you select "Hello Flawless" as one of your samples at checkout, you can use the sponge from that, which worked just fine.

Is this available now? I can get then in shopping bag now.
Yes, "All Decked Out" is available now! I was worried that it was only available at Christmas, but last week I put it in my shopping bag and it is now sitting on my desk! This is my favourite Benefit beauty kit (awesome value) and I hope you like it too!

Remove with normal cleanser?

If i'm not putting on foundation or any powder but only the benetint on top of moisturizer, is it okay to wash off with normal cleanser or facial soap?
Hi JoyJoy! Although benetint lasts all day (yay!) you can easily remove it with a normal cleanser or facial soap, which is what I use. I've never had to use make-up remover or hard scrubbing to get benetint off - normal cleanser works like a charm!

Why is there no mirror?

I bought this product at Sephora and when I brought it home I realized there was no mirror in it like it is advertised. A bit confused... Is mine defective or what?
Hi KateLyn! Sugarbomb should definitely come with a mirror, unless it was a smaller sized sugarbomb in a Benefit beauty kit. Sephora has great customer service - if you show them your defective blush I'm sure they'll replace it!

Am I too old for sugarbomb?

So I notice the age ranges of those posting reviews are significantly younger than I am which is 52. Thoughts on whether this will work well for me?

Much thanks!
No, you are not too old for sugarbomb! My mom is around your age and it looks fabulous on her! The colour gives her a natural glow and really perks up her skin! This blush has four colours, so you can customize it to suit your skin tone and occasion. It has a subtle shimmer, which works for all skin types! This is Benefit's best blush and you should give it a try - if you're worried about how it will look on you, pop into a Benefit Boutique, Sephora, or an ULTA store and ask to try it before you buy it!
