At First Swatch: Benefit Gettin’ Cheeky and Benefit Watt’s Up!


Benefit is pretty cute, let’s just get that out of the way.

These minis don’t actually come to together, the three tints come together in a Sephora exclusive set (Gettin’ Cheeky), while the Watt’s Up mini came as a Sephora birthday gift. I actually received the Gettin’ Cheeky set as a Christmas gift from my cousin.

*when in doubt, makeup is always appreciated.

I haven’t played around too much with Benefit products; my last Benefit purchase being the Hello Flawless Liquid Foundation (loved it but got too oily too quickly). These minis give a little taste of the brand, and I likes. I do have to admit, the Posietint and the Cha Cha tint do make me feel intimidated (do I swirl with my fingers?! Swirl with a brushes?! The choices!). I’m more quickly to choose the Watt’s Up or Sun Beam, as I like to have a glowy (not oily) face.

There’s no scent to these. And for those who are new or unfamiliar with Posietint and/or Cha Cha tint – these stain! I can still see the swatches on my hand, even after showering.

Unfortunately, I can’t find this set on Sephora’s website, so I don’t know it’s actually retail value. But these products are worth trying out. So, whether it’s full sized or a sample, I’d highly recommend giving these a try. 😉
