Benefit Feelin' Dandy Box Review

Hi guys,
So finally I have got round to writing my review on my Feelin' Dandy Box set from Benefit. Actually I had a Benefit free makeover appointment earlier today which was FUN!! Anyway, I will post a haul shortly.
Contents in the box:
Posie Tint 'Poppy-Pink Tinted Lip and Cheek Stain'

High Beam 'Luminescent Complexion Enhancer'


Dandelion 'Ultra Plush Dandelion Lip Gloss'

Dandelion 'A Brightening Face Powder'


Now onto the review:

First of all Posie Tint:


First impressions: 
It's very runny. Benefit calls it 'liquid gel' but it's definitely more liquid-y! 


Cost: N/A 
Packaging: Like the full size version and good although you can't see the product inside. 8/10
Longevity: As a cheek stain very good, all day over foundation and powder.
10/10
Application: Easy with the brush both for lips and cheeks.
9/10
Pigmentation: Just good enough to create the 'poppy pink' that Benefit boasts about; delicate enough for cheeks but pigmented enough for lips.
8/10
Texture: I don't like it for lips that much because its soo runny at first and then it's quite drying when it does dry into your lips. However for cheeks, it's great!
6/10
Individual Purchase: 41/50 A great product



High Beam next!

Packaging: You can actually see the product through the packaging! Simple yet effective.
9/10
Longevity: Lasts very well and adds a glimmer to your look all day.
10/10
Application: Has the same brush as Posie Tint and works well. Apply in dots to bone under eye for the best results.
10/10
Pigmentation: I wouldn't necessarily say it wants pigmentation for this product but it does have some shimmer and looks gorgeous!
8/10
Texture: Feels ever so slightly sticky but glides on gorgeously and feels so luxurious.
8/10
Individual Purchase? 45/50!! AMAZING!!!!

Dandelion Lipgloss next:

Packaging: It's ok, meh, says what it does and does it. It is in fact similar to most brand's packaging for lipgloss.
6/10
Longevity: The colour is definitely not a stain but is quite glittery and nice. Just don't eat or drink without reapplying later.
7/10
Application: Doesn't have a brush but the hole in the tube for it to come out is a good size so that it doesn't spurt out.
8/10
Pigmentation: It isn't trying to be bright and I do really love this. It's a nude shimmery glossy lipgloss.
8/10
Texture: A great texture which isn't sticky or gross after a while but stays glossy and you can't feel the glitter!
10/10
Individual Purchase? 39/50 Not as much as the others but I truly love this product. Even if I do keep having to apply it!!

And finally.... Dandelion brightening face powder

Packaging: Weeelllll, it's built into the box so I will rate the general box and say that I lurve it!!! And there are tips on how to apply each product and a mirror!
10/10
Longevity: It lasts great! Seriously, sweep over foundation or as a blusher.
10/10
Application: It comes with a great brush and makes your skin silky smooth!
10/10

Pigmentation: Not that great actually, it is more subtle than highly pigmented.
7/10
Texture: It is quite a fine gorgeous pressed powder that makes skin feel really silky.
9/10
Individual Purchase? 46/50. YAAAYYYY!!! The best one is last.

So the products in order go:
