    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sexy Six Starter Kit:

    I thought this kit would be a great way to try out a couple of products I had my eyes on from the Benefit Cosmetics line. It honestly wasn't worth the price of admission. If your goal is to just try one or two products out, I recommend going into the store and sampling them in person rather than getting this kit. The samples in this kit are tiny, and I do mean TINY!!! Only a couple of the products are truly cult favorites from the Benefit Cosmetics line. The Hoola bronzer is the best product out of everything, but keep in mind that the size is so small that you won't get but a few uses out of it at most, and that's only if you're lucky enough to find a brush small enough to dip into the little pan. I recommend purchasing the full size Hoola bronzer and utilizing the return policy if you're not satisfied....which I doubt will happen. Hoola is a really great product, but I already owned the full size product before purchasing this kit. The only other product in this kit that I wanted to try was the High Beam. It's definitely over-rated in my opinion. There are so many other amazing highlighters on the market that give a beautiful natural glow as opposed to the High Beam. Again, the size you get in this kit is so tiny; imagine a bottle the size of half your pinky. The other products are really too small to effectively sample them. The tint was just a mess and not a good product at all. The "That Girl" face primer felt very watery and ineffective. It's certainly not their most popular face primer. I wish they had included the POREfessional primer, which seems to be their most popular primer. Overall, is this kit worth the $24 price tag? In my opinion, absolutely not! If I had it to do over again, I would sample the products in the store or purchase the full sized products I was interested in and return them if they didn't work out. The products in this kit remind me of the free samples you normally get with purchase from many other stores.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sexy Six Starter Kit:

        I have never tried Benefit before so I decided to purchase this starter kit to find out what I like before maybe buying the full sizes.

        The Bad Gal Lash mascara is awesome! I have long, straight lashes, so it is hard to find a mascara that curls and lengthens. This one does the trick! I was using the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara before, and I think I like this one better!

        The Hoola bronzer is also terrific; no glitter which in my opinion is a must. It is easy to apply and looks great!

        Stay Don't Stray is definately my favorite eye primer now! It keeps my eye shadow looking great and staying all day long. I was using the Elf one before, and that one smelled weird and just wasn't right.

        The Poise tint is a little sheer, but that is perfect for me! I am not a big blush person, almost never wear it, so a really light pink is perfect! Gives life to my face without looking like too much. And of course you can build up the color depending on what you want.

        I also fell in love with the That Gal face primer! It fills in my pores and makes my foundation look better and last longer!

        I love High Beam! I apply it above my blush, on my brow bones, and on the bridge of my nose. I love the simmer and the way it brights my face.

        Overall, I am in love with this kit and will definitely think about purchasing the larger sizes!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Sexy Six Starter Kit:

          Ok so this is awesome! this is so nice so that you can try 6 items without buying the large $20-$30 version. I found that I love the mascara a lot it's great and doesn't clump at all! The hula bronzer blends beautifully. I like that gal but I don't see much of a difference between when I use then put my foundation on to just putting foundation on, other then the fact its moistureizing. I like high beam a lot I use above my cheek bones then I highlight the top of my lip so then it brings out my natural shape without having to use a lip liner, it just really looks natural and very glowing on my skin. Posie tint is good, now I love it as a lip stain but as a cheek stain its really wet, when i say wet I mean runny. I always put my blush on after I put foundation and powder on but with this I can't because it actually drags the foundation and powder with it so then it looks really messy. But on the days where I just want to put very little makeup on then I use it and then put powder on it works nicely and looks very natural. Stay don't stray I really loved but then it started to go darker after awhile maybe it was always like that but it started to get really cakey so I don't really use it anymore. Overall this is a great set and I've had it for a very long time and none of the products have been completly used up.

            The box explains what each product does and how to apply. I like the concealer primer the best. Very useful for a test drive of their products and great quality.
