Rated 1 out of 5 by Blondy1984 Disappointing benefit! Really drying
All in all, the worse purchase I have brought from benefit. The foundation was so cakey and heavy, the bo-ing was very drying indeed and could see all the lines under eyes despite moisturising beforehand. The mascara is ok for day time look as got clumpy after 2nd application. The powder was ok but unlike my usual brand looked very drying on the skin. The only positive was the pore cream, this felt nice on the skin and gave a nice base.
All in all and loyal customer is rather disappointed. Not the quality you would expect. I am just glad I tried this before purchasing any full size items. If you have dry or even combined skin do avoid!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Terrysallgold2 VERY DISSAPOINTED
I bought this for my grand-daughter as her first lot of makeup, especially as Benefit is supposed to be a fun brand, I though this would be perfect for her.
When it arrived it was tiny, I mean really small, and the colour was dark when I was sure I ordered fair. She was so disappointed the look on her face said it all.
I was going to exchange it, but she was so disappointed that I took her into the city that weekend with her friends, and she found something she liked better, therefore I have returned this.
From their reaction I can't see her friends wanting this either.

I have used Benefit for years and very rarely return items. However, I just didn't like most of the products, made my skin dryer than normal. There was also no mascara with the box. I did however get a mascara in another product I purchased. On its way back to QVC.

I bought the Light version of this kit, and the foundation and powder (labelled Ivory) are a good match for my skin tone. I have quite dry skin, and feel this kit is perhaps more suitable for someone with an oilier complexion. The primer works as regards helping the foundation sit more smoothly but doesn't make a noticeable difference to my pores, and the tube is tiny so there's only three or four applications in it. The foundation is okay - I didn't find it any more runny than my usual one, but it doesn't give much coverage and is very flat in appearance with no illumination or glow. The powder is also very flat and matt. I used the concealer under my eyes, which is the only place I really need it, and it was very drying so I can see why it was recommended to mix it with an eye cream. I couldn't find the mascara in the package so can't comment on that. I'm pleased I got the chance to try these products as a little kit but I wouldn't buy any of the full sizes or continue with the auto delivery. They stay on for several hours but don't really make me look any better, which is the whole point of make up. I'll be sticking with the high street brand I'm currently using.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AromaJunkie2 1 star per product
Everything in this kit I gave a 10 out of 10...apart from the foundation. It simply isn't the one for my skin and doesn't give me enough coverage. However, the other products are fab and I would go ahead and buy the full sizes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kittiec75 Good for trial
Not overly impressed with the products in this set, the Porefessional however is wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone. I use it under my usual foundation and not only does it hide pores, it helps to keep my make up on all night. I work in a busy bar and due to the heat my make up has usually disappeared by the end of the night but since using porefessional it stays on. I bought this set to trial the foundation and powder and to be honest they are not as good as my cheaper foundation and powder I use just now. The foundation doesn't have very good coverage and the powder doesn't stay on and looks patchy when applied. The Boing concealer is nothing to write home about either, I actually recommend Erase Paste by Benefit as the Boing doesn't seem to blend very well and it clogged a bit under my eye. I am glad I got this wee set before forking out money on the full size products though so for that it is worth the money.
