This little handy dandy Benefit set is sold at Sephora for only $12.00. Pretty awesome for beauty junkies like myself because you don't have to dish out a lot of money on the full size product but still get to try it. You'll definitely get a decent amount of use out of them before you decided if you actually need the full size. I love it when companies sell a mini version of it. The only full size products I'm able to finish are skincare. The rest take a lot longer, especially with a large collection.
On this set, Coralista comes in a cheap black plastic packaging. The packaging is not the sturdiest but it's practical. It contains 3 g or 0.1 oz of product. The full size contains .28 oz for $28.00, which is just a little over 50% more. I actually don't like the bulky packaging of the full size but it does include a brush, which most of us probably don't need.
Coralista is a bit loose and powdery but doesn't feel dry. It is quite gorgeous when blended. It has a subtle gold sheen to it. It's very easy to apply and blend, almost fool-proof since it would be hard to overdo. The wear time is about 5 hours on me before it starts fading. So I would say it's pretty average. Because I find it rather light, it might not show well on people with darker skintone.
I like it overall. It gives me a nice dewy flushed cheeks.
I would give it a 8/10 rating.
Sun beam is a highlighter. It contains 4.0 mL or .13 oz. The packaging is similar to the full size version, which contains .45 oz (3 times more) for $26.00.
Comes with a small brush applicator similar to nail polish brushes.
Sunbeam is a rather cool toned golden sheen. Looks very subtle on me. It blends fairly easily but I prefer to use a stipple blush to blend it. To me it's a nice to have but don't need it kind of product. Others might feel differently about it. It does however last quite well and will make it through most of your day. I guess highlighters aren't really something I feel does much enhancement on me. Overall, it is still a good product though.
I would give it a 9/10 rating.
