I loved that you could try out a few different things from the hard candy line in this kit. I ended up purchasing it for two products mostly, the lip plumper in a light pink color and the 24 karat glow all the way. The lip plumper was out at my local walmart in every light pink shade. They only had dark shades left, and I had wanted to try the glow all the way, anyway so this package was great. It was a bonus that it came with the blush and the primer, although I still bought the illuminating primer separately because I wanted to achieve a "dewy" look.
The good: This is a great value! Where else can you get a tester kit with all this stuff for $8 bucks? I love the 24 karat and the lip plumper. It does tingle a bit when you put it on and might give slightly larger lips, but you're not going to end up looking like angelina jolie or anything, so don't get your hops up. I mostly bought it for the pretty pink color. I have olive skin, so I prefer the bronze glow all the way to this one, however when I'm doing a pretty pink daytime look, this is very nice as my "pre-blush". I usually put this on my cheeks and then top with the brighter blush. It's got a pretty subtle shimmer to it. It would look great on fair-skinned girls.
The Bad: I haven't used this primer, but I used the illuminating one. It isn't quite as nice as the super-expensive ones out there. It's a little more thick, however I use coconut oil on my dry skin before putting primer on, so this glides easily on my skin. If you have oily skin, this may not be good for you. I love the color of the blush, however it seemed super-dry and cakey in the package. I could not get it onto my blush brush. I had to dab my finger into the pot and then dab it onto my cheeks that way in order to get any color from it. That was a little annoying, but the color is pretty.
Overall good value and nice variety of items to try out.
