Review and Swatches
|Cabana glama makeup kit by benefit|
And also my first benefit product(s). I was actually looking for a good matte bronzer that I can use for contouring. I was gonna go with the NYX taupe blush because I heard lots of good things about it. But it was sold out. So I walked over to the benefit counter because of the hoola bronzer everyone is raving about. But I wasn't exactly sure if it works for me so I went with this kit instead.

On top of the hoola bronzer, I also got the Posietint, the some kind-a gorgeous medium foundation faker and an eyeshadow-trio. Also it came with a brush and double-ended sponge applicator which I don't use though.
I think the packaging looks super cute. It looks like a postcard and on the inside it has a mirror glued in which is perfect for on the go. And I am not worried about anything breaking in it because the box seems pretty protective to me. Also if you used up all the product you can just take the inside out and reuse the box. Isn't that adorable?
The Cabana glama kit includes just 0.14 oz. , which isn't all that much but it's not a big deal since the whole purpose is to try it. And I am pretty sure it is still gonna last me a while because you don't really need to apply much. I like the bronzer a lot cause it is matte, not orange-toned and really pigmented. I understand all the hype about it now. I used it to contour my cheekbones and it looks great. I apply it with my real techniques contour brush and it is really easy to blend. So I am thinking I will buy the actual hoola bronzer when I run out!
|Peach Fizz, Bronze Buzz, Cocoa Pizzazz|
I really like these highly pigmented eyeshadows. They have a really nice shimmer to them (not to much!). I put Bronze Buzz all over my lid and Cocoa Pizzazz in the Crease. Peach Fizz is a great highlighting color. I put a little bit in the center of my lid and some on my browbone. The colors look very gorgeous and they are perfect for an everyday look. But you can also turn them into a nighttime-look easily - just put dark brown or black eyeliner on. Also these eyeshadows last long - On me they last for like 8 hours WITHOUT primer. And NO Creasing !

Some kind-a gorgeous medium - foundation faker
|Some kind-a gorgeous medium|
I did not like this at all! I don't know what it is but I put this on my face and it just didn't look or feel good. It didn't have good coverage and my face started burning and turned red.. I don't know if I am allergic to it or anything but this just doesn't work for me. Also it does not smell good! I heard a few other people say that too. At first I didn't think it would be to bad but after I put it on my face the smell just got worse and was really annoying. Maybe it is my skin that is being weird and it works for other people but I would definitely not buy the full-sized one of these.
Posietint - tinted lip and cheek stain
Again this is small.. Really small actually. But I think it is a good way to try it before spending all your money on a product you end up not liking. I like how this product gives me a really nice natural flush. I just put 3 spots on my cheek and rub it in. It also adds a really nice pinky-shimmer onto my lips. I dont really find it drying but its also not very moisturizing on my lips either - but I also have pretty dry lips. I think it is a great product and I might actually buy the full-sized one.
Even though I didn't like the Some kind-a gorgeous medium foundation faker at all, I am still really happy I bought this kit. You can get it for 19$ and I think that's a pretty good deal. Of course you don't get any full sized products but it is a really great way to try some products before actually purchasing them separately. And I am pretty sure they still gonna last you a while cause you don't really need to apply much product cause it is so pigmented. It is also perfect for on the go or traveling because you pretty much have everything you need in this little box, just take a mascara, maybe some eyeliner (and in my case a different foundation) and you are good to go.
I like how this kit gives you that summary glow and how the products (except the foundation) are so great, natural and pigmented. I would definitely recommend getting it if that is something you are looking for.
