Benefit Finding Mr. Bright Kit Review
By Contributor: Mily
There are some things in life which you just NEED to have for it to be a perfect life! First is of course a Mr. right..and second is a similar sounding which will help you get the first one! Yes I am talking about the Finding Mr. bright kit which I will review and swatch today..it will make your journey of finding your Mr. right a quite gorgeous one!! Though in my case..my Mr.Right got me this kit when he went to London. So it was the other way round! Anyways, benefit releases these kits so people like us who are afraid to buy full sizes can try their bestsellers through these travel size samples. This one is a highlighting kit and contains all you need for a gorgeous stunning glowing skin. Let’s see if it’s really worth all the hype.
Benefit Claims: Why we love it! Ladies, this brightening kit is quite a catch! Finding Mr. bright is filled with all of the essentials for a luminous complexion. Complete with a step-by-step brightening lesson…this kit’s the total package!
- Erase paste in 02 (medium) brightening camouflage 3.2 g Net Wt. 0.11 oz.
- Girl meets pearl golden-pink liquid pearl 7.5 mL/0.25 US fl. oz.
- Posietint poppy-pink tinted lip & cheek stain 4.0 mL/0.13 US fl. oz.
- High beam luminescent complexion enhancer 2.5 mL/0.08 US fl. oz.
I have to start with the packaging. It’s housed in an adorable pink and orange box which instantly makes you feel better about your life in general! The packaging is so chic and classy with a big mirror that I can safely say that if I was stranded on an island with nothing but this pink and orange box (along with a few essentials of course) ) I will still be able to get that gorgeous glowing skin. This kit contains two highlighters, one blush and one concealer. So you just need a kajal if you are like me who dies a little when she sees herself without kajal, and you are sorted!
The blush is of course Posietint about which I raved in my last review so I am not going there. It contains a small travel size but still good enough to last for a year atleast! It’s the exact replica of the bigger bottle. Full size Price: $30
Now come the heroes of this kit. The 2 highlighters which are out there to give the heroine (you of course) the glow she deserves. Sounding too movie-ish?? These highlighters make me do that! One is the benefit girl meets pearl highlighter and other one is benefit high beam. Girl meets pearl is a subtle highlighter which will give you a soft ethereal glow. I mix it with my bb cream or foundation and it gives the most stunning skin ever! No kidding. It is a pink pearly liquid and is a breeze to apply. Staying power is again brilliant with 7-8 hours. Awards it has won are:
2011 TotalBeauty.com Awards, editors’ pick for best highlighter
2011 InStyle Best Beauty Buys, best beauty buy
Full size Price: $30
The other highlighter – High Beam is a highlighter in your face kind of product. The Benefit high beam is a very heavy duty highlighter and it will make sure you look like disco balls of you don’t handle it with care. BUT! Apply it really sparsely and you will fall in love with the way your skin looks. It’s a pink liquid highlighter. Just apply it on the highest points of your face like cheekbones and bridge of the nose and you will look gorgeous! Awards:
2012 TotalBeauty.com Awards, readers’ choice for best highlighter
Full size Price: $26
The concealer is the legen- wait for it– dary erase paste from benefit which is a cult favorite of many bloggers and one of the bestsellers from Benefit. Its more of a brightening concealer and benefit describes it as “Signs of stress & fatigue are a thing of the past with this concentrated cream formula! Available in three shades with brightening melon undertones to suit every skin tone.” A minor correction. This concealer has a pink undertone and will not suit yellow skin tones. As a concealer, it does an awesome job but is a bit thick for my liking. I mix it with a bit of lotion and boom! It works brilliantly. Staying power is 7-8 hours. Provides light to medium coverage. Some of the awards which this concealer has won are:
2012 Teen Vogue Beauty Awards, readers’ choice for best concealer
2012 Women’s Heath Beauty Awards, best concealer
2011 Allure Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards, best concealer
Full size Price: $26

You yourself do the math and decide! I have listed the full size cost of the products and it is about 100 dollars when combined. So you can try all these for some Rs.1800 and then buy full size products of only those products which you really like. Though I like them all!
Pros of Benefit Finding Mr. Bright Kit:
- One kit with a lot of products to try. Kind of like a beauty box.
- Best for those who love highlighters and minimal makeup looks.
- You get smaller sizes which anyway still take an year to use fully so no wastage and reduced cost.
- You can buy full size later on after finding your perfect match.
Cons of Benefit Finding Mr. Bright Kit:
Price: $36 but right now available on benefit website at $28. Again, benefit is offering free shipping on $125 so do let me know in the comments below if you want to share the order. I am so sorry for the last benefit article since I was out of town and did not have a net connection. (Also available in Sephora Delhi)
VNA Rating: 50/5
Overall: This kit is a stunning product that you all should definitely once try. It is totally worth the money and you will never regret buying it!
Do I recommend? I am in LOVE with this kit. Highly recommended!
