Benefit Cheek Me Out Set High Beam and Posie Tint - Swatch and Review

One thing I love about Benefit products is that they offer many trial size versions and sets so you get to try more product for the money.


  • Small and cute but contains enough products for several uses. Both has a brush applicator similar to nail polish brush applicators.
  • .13 oz each or 4 ml each


  • High Beam is a pearlescent white shimmer highlighter. The shimmers are very fine and subtle and adds just the perfect amount of glow without looking harsh or overdone. With the brush applicator, apply just a few dots on the area you want to highlight and quickly blend with your finger or a brush before the product sets. A little goes a long way.
  • Posie Tint is a medium cool toned pink liquid/gel blush tint. This one is a trick pony and I don't recommend that you apply directly to your skin because it will stain almost immediately and may look patchy on your cheeks. What I do is I use a small stippling brush and dab a bit of Posie Tint around the stippling brush and then quickly blend it on my cheek area. This is help create a more even application.
  • I really like how natural both of these product look on me. They last up to 6 hours before I notice some fading.

Final Thought

I love Posie Tint. As long as you work with a brush and blend it quickly, you'll get a lovely and natural flush that will last fairly long. High Beam is also a nice highlighter although personally I don't feel that there is anything special about it. This is a nice set though. The price is just right and you will get several uses in spite of the little packaging. If you're a makeup hoarder like myself, you will find these trial size pretty convenient and satisfying without having to invest on a full size product and they make excellent travel buddies.

Tried it? Tell me what you think or which is your favorite Benefit product.


  1. Posie tint is really pretty! I have the trial size too =)

  2. It looks lovely on you and it looks soo natural like a glow from within. I've never given these products a chance though, I'm afraid it won't blend on top of my powdered face and that I'll mess up the application before it sets! I should get a kit with these minis next time to try!

    1. I wear a little powder and don't have an issue with these on top.
