I just bought this shade recently and wore it for the first time today and got so many compliments! I have more than my fair share of e/s in shades of purple but this one is definitely different with the reddish undertones. I agree that it is definitely not an all over the lid color but I used it on the lower lid through the crease paired with some lighter pink shades and it is just gorgeous. I felt it complimented by hair and eyes well (brown/hazel). Will definitely buy again!
Favorite blush I've used to date by far! It is flattering on all skin tones and gives a soft subtle hint of color. My sister and I both use this as our go to blush - she got the tan/olivey skin from our father while I got the fair/pale unless it's summer from our mother - and it looks great on both of us. I usually use my own brush for it but the brush it comes with is also good and I use it on the go rather than having to schlep around my own brush. I would highly recommend this to anyone as a good first buy from BeneFit!
I love the end result you get with Benetint ... but I HATE the process of getting there! I use this product mostly on my lips as the brush makes more sense for lip application. While I love the flush it creates on my cheeks the brush is too small and not quite the right applicator. Also, if you do not blend the product right away you will end up with red dots/stripes on your cheeks. End product is pretty but the application is a little more of a hassle than the product is worth!
The answer to my dark circles!!! While I have several concealors that I use and love Erase Paste is the only one that truly, honestly, 100% covers my undereye darkness. That being said, I don't use this as an everyday product as it can sometimes feel a little heavy or sticky on my skin. And remember - a little goes a LONG way and using too much will guaruntee that heavy/sticky feeling for sure!

While I find the packaging a bit annoying (it's cute but this is not a product I travel with, it stays put on my makeup table at home since the box is bulky and you can't separate the items) I love the items inside! I could take or leave the primer. I feel you need a lot for full coverage and it can sometime feel sticky on your face. The Boiing concealers are FANTASTIC and by far my favorite items in the kit. The two colors let you blend to find the perfect shade. I use this to cover blemishes and haven't found a product that does it better. The Erase Paste is also great. It covers dark circles like nobody's business, however, I do feel that it is a little heavy. Remember that a little goes a long way. I don't use this everyday only for time I need super duper coverage as I feel it's a bit heavy/sticky for everyday wear. The EyeBright and LemonAid are great. Sometimes I will just use those two with mascara and my eyes just pop! The LemonAid gets rid of discoloration on my eyes SO WELL. After using in in this kit I bought a full size! EyeBright does just what it's name suggests but I don't think it is special enough to buy on it's own. It definitely brightens up your eyes (I place it in the inner corners) but it's job could easily be replaced by several things already in my makeup bag. Overall, I would recommend this product. The only reason I wouldn't buy it again is because the packaging just doesn't allow for easy portability. I would honestly buy the items I like best separately when I run out so that I could carry them more easily!
