Make Up Review: Benefit Passport to Posh Kit

My First Benefit Purchase!!!


So the other day I was at Myers and as I browse trough the make up counters I saw the Benefit counter having a clearance sales for their Passport to Posh kit.

Now I never own anything from Benefit but I have heard a lot of rave review on blogs and YouTube on the company so I walk up to girl at the counter and the next thing I know I was given a master class about the products!

What sold me on getting the kit was the concealer (which i never own one) and cream eyeshadow!

Is also comes with "instructions" on how to apply the products

And here is the content!

It comes with a deluxe sample of Bad Gal Lash Mascara, 3 powder eyeshadow, a double ended eyeshadow brush, a concealer brush, a ceaseless eyeshadow, a concealer and an eye bright.

The creaseless eyeshadow in R.S.V.P.
I dont own many cream eyeshadow nor do I have any in this color so it was nice to try this. I heart alot of good reviews about their ceaseless eyeshadow so it was nice to get one of them in the kit.

Its easy to apply and its great as a base or just wear all over the lids as it is.

Its a neutral pinky champagne gold color. Good for everyday ware if you just want to sweep a bit of something on the eyes with a bit of liner and mascara and you are good to go.

It last long too! I wore it the whole day and it does not crease!

Powder eyeshadows

Three powder eyeshadow, a highlight which is a matte white, a pinky champagne gold for all over the lids (the powder version of the ceaseless eyeshadow included in this kit) and a matte dark brown for the crease or to make a smoke brown look.

Very good pigmentation (it better be as Benefit is not Cheap! lolz). Its nice for an everyday neutral look.

Concealer and eye bright

A part from  the cream eyeshadow i wanted the concealer as i have been needing one badly as i have no concealer and luckily this concealer was in my shade! 

The concealer was easy to use and conceal any imperfections like under eyes dark circles, redness and the occasional pimple. The girl at Benefit advise me to use a brush to apply the product on my face (dont worry the kit includes brushes) and use my fingers to blend it out.

The eye bright i saw at the counter was originally in a pencil form! now why they gave us in a pot form i don't know but all i know is this works really nice of applied a in the inner corners to brighten up the eyes which is more natural than the usual white eyeshadow.


For someone who never tried Benefit in general this kit is great to start with on getting familiar with the company's products. It's also great for Beginners as it all neutral shades so its good for everyday use and they should have no problem using since it comes with a tip and tricks style card.

I have yet to try the mascara as I am still working on finishing up some other mascaras so i will probably review it in future blog posts!

I like how it comes with brushes to apply as lets face it not everyone has a bazillion brushes! 

Its great for traveling as I can throw in the whole kit and go since i have everything i need to make a simple look

It also comes with a mirror its handy for touch ups.

The only down side is that Benefit packaging for their kits are usually bulky. 

Other than that its a nice kit and for the price I got it for I could not pass it up!

 Where to get: Benefit counters at Myers (not sure if David Jones have)

 Price : Got if on offer for $36 but it was originally $56

What do you think of the kit??

Have you tried anything from Benefit??
