Primping With The Stars | Benefit

Hi there! Today I'm reviewing yet another palette! I've been loving so many palettes lately so I just have to blog about them :)
Using this "Primping with the Starts" kit by Benefit, you will make your face look naturally glowy and flawless and you will achieve a perfect base for your makeup with these key products: 

* They're Real! - Mascara 3.0g
This mascara with a flexible, plastic wand works good, but I'm not super impressed with it. I like when mascara gives my lashes volume and texture and I just feel like this one just doesn't really do it and it doesn't separates my lashes too well. But after all it's a good, long-lasting mascara.
  • * Stay Don’t Stray - Primer for concealers & eyeshadows 2.5ml
  • First when I got this kit I thought was a concealer but it's actually not. It's a really great product, which you use a primers for eyeshadows and concelears and I think that it works really well! Since I've started using it, I can tell that my makeup stay on perfectly for longer than usual, and I don't have to re-do my concealer t I did before, I just do apply it in the morning, and it makes my concealer (and eyeshadow) still look great when I come back from work and stay perfect till late! Fantastic product. 
  • * Benetint - Rose-tinted lip & cheek stain 4.0ml
  • Benetint is a rose tinted stain for lips and chicks. It looks adorable, the packaging reminds me of a nail polish, as you apply this product with a brush like the ones in nail polishes. It's a nice berry colour, which I think would look amazing on someone with a nice tan. However, I like to just pop a bit of it on my chicks, and maybe slightly on my lips, but if I put too much then I might end up looking too pale!
  • * Some Kind-a Gorgeous - The foundation fake 2.5ml.
  • This matte foundation fake comes in the kit in a medium shade. It's a very light, creamy mousse texture. The coverage is alright but if you want more coverage then you could just use some concealer. I think this foundation will leave your skin looking very natural and matte.
  • * Girl Meets Pearl - Liquid pearl for face 7.5ml
  • This liquid pearl for face has a nice fruity scent and looks amazing. I personally like to use it as a highlighter on my cheek bones and my brow bones. It's a light pearly colour and it's such a light product that will give your skin a natural glow. It's also non sticky and super easy to apply. I think I might get addicted to it :) 
  • * The POREfessional PRO balm to minimize the appearance of pores 7.5ml
  • I don't have many pores but it works amazing on some that I have on my skin. It works like an airbrush. It blends in amazing with my skin and once I apply it on my face, it makes my pores almost none existent and I don't even see this product on my skin which is amazing. I've never actually tried a product like that before as like I said before, I don't have many pores. 

This palette is a bit bigger then the other Benefit one that I reviewed in one of my latest posts, but the products are tiny! I think that the ones that might last me long are Benetint, The POREfessional and Girl Meets Pearl, as these aren't the products that I would use daily and they're the biggest ones. I personally would want the foundation packaging to be a bit bigger, as I might go through it fast! 
Even though these products are small, the quality of them is amazing and I think that Benefit makes amazing makeup, just maybe a bit too expensive sometimes.
