Benefit Finding Mr. Bright - Review and Swatches

I am not a huge fan of makeup kits and palettes in general as I always find there are products that I don't or won't use in them. However, I think it is something that Benefit does really well. Benefit create fab little kits that make excellent gifts or tasters into their range of products.

Finding Mr. Bright is one such kit, this packaging is so bright you cannot fail to notice it on the shelves and will have no problem finding it amongst your makeup. That said the outer packaging is my least favourite thing about the product!

Finding Mr. Bright is billed as a brightening makeup manual and it contains 4 mini size Benefit products and a manual on how to use each of the products.

The four products inside are

Girl Meets Pearl - 7.5ml
Posietint - 4ml
High Beam - 2.5ml
Erase Paste 3.2g  (no2 Medium)

Inside the box
I love this kit as it contains everything I need to brighten my skin up, I would use and am using everything that is in it. As the products are minis I also find them handy to take away with me when I have the odd weekend away..

Girl Meets Pearl - This is a lovely golden pink liquid that can be blended with your foundation or used on top of make up to make you glow.

Posietint - I have tried all three tints from the Benefit range and this has to be my favourite. The bottle comes with a little brush and you just brush on three strokes and blend for a long lasting soft pink cheek tint. It can be used on the lips as well. I am wearing it here.

High Beam - This is one of Benefit's iconic highlighting products. It is excellent, a little goes a long way. This provides an instant pick me up to brighten the face. I love to use it on my cheek bones and brow bones. Once again this comes with a little brush. I used it daily on my recent weekend away to the Cotswolds and fell in love with it.

Erase Paste - This product was a slow grower on me as there is a trick to using it. You only need a tiny amount and it needs to be warmed between your fingers so that it softens to become blendable. The medium shade works really well for me and I use it to cover any dark circles I have and the odd imperfection.

I can highly recommend this brightening kit from Benefit. If you have never tried any of these products this is a great introduction to them.

What is your favourite Benefit kit?

  1. I got this set for a bday prezzie but have highbeam and posietint already, and the erase paste is too dark for me, so I swapped it for a their Something about Sofia perfume. Not convinced of the value of this set to be honest as they gave those minis away with Glamour a few months ago...


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
