Benefit 3 Scoops O' Sexy Set Review~!

Hey Guys~!

In my Holiday haul, {click here} to check it out, I showed this Benefit kit that my friend got me. It's got three of the tinted balms and three sample sizes of the tints. In another Benefit kit review, I talked about how much I don't like the tints. But I decided to give them a try and now here's my review. So let's start~~!

First off, the packaging for this kit is adorable. I really like how it says on the bottom, 'one for you' and 'two for me.' Also the color scheme of gold, white and pink, is really pretty. Each of the three colors inside are individually packaged, which is great if you wanted to give one out to three of your friends.

Now I'll be reviewing each of the individual colors, starting with PosieBalm and PosieTint. I really like the rose gold colored packaging for the two of them. The color of both of them is a bright pink, which I wasn't really expecting and initially had thought they would be more natural looking.

Here are swatches of the balm and the tint. . .

The balm is on the left and the tint is on the right. Looking at the swatches in person, the tint and the balm look like two different colors. The balm has a warm undertone and almost looks coral, while the tint has a cool undertone and looks like a baby pink. Also random side note, the balm smells like roses, which I really like.

On the lips, the balm is really hydrating, even without a balm underneath. However on my lips, it doesn't show up too much and offers a light tint. With the tint under the balm, there is more color pay off, but still not a lot.

Next is LolliBalm and LolliTint. Again I like the packaging of these, and the little candies on them are super cute looking. The color they are is an orchid purple, which may look intimidating to some people. I was really excited to try this color and see how it looked on me.

Here's a swatch, balm on the left and tint on the right. . .

The color is identical for these, and the pigmentation is nicer than I expected. And when I was cleaning off the swatches, the tint stayed on really well. I had the hardest time removing it, so it really does last.

On the lips, both products are more pigmented that the Posie ones. The tint itself is very pigmented and will create a beautiful orchid lip on it's own. The balm adds a nice shine and it does last a long time. If you've never tried this type of lip color, I'd try this because it is really build-able, and can be really sheer at the same time.

Lastly is the BeneBalm and the BeneTint. Both of these are the red colors, and they are neutral toned reds. The packaging is quite simple, but I am a sucker for polka dots, so I really like this one too. I don't wear red lip colors too often, since I think they look really bad with my skin tone and everything, but like LolliBalm and LolliTint, I was excited to try something new.

Here are the swatches, balm on the left and tint on the right. . .

If you're not a red lip person, like me, this is perfect for you. It's not bold like a red lipstick, but it gives a sheer red color that looks really nice. Recently I've been wearing it for my gradient lip that I wear to school. It lasts all day and it doesn't flake off or anything.

My friend bought this for me, and on the box it says it cost $42, but my friend said she got it for less. However the only place you can purchase this specific kit is on Amazon for around $60. So if you want to try out any of these products, just get a sample size or full size at either Sephora or Ulta. The balms individually cost $18 and a full size of one of the tints is $30. But the tints are often in little kits or sample sets for much less.

I love this kit~! The colors are really nice and I've been wearing all of them. I recommend them if you're looking for a good quality lip tint and tinted lip balm. Also Benefit does some of the nicest packaging and I just love all of it. I do wish this was still available to purchase, but they'll probably have something similar next holiday season.

I hope you guys enjoyed this review~! If you have any questions or would like to see an everyday makeup routine, since I haven't done one in forever, let me know in the comments below. Thank you guys so much for reading and I'll see you at my next post.

  4. Aw the packaging is so cute! I'm bias, because I love the colour pink, so of course my favourite from the three is the Lollibalm and Lollitint.
