The Gimme Fever Cheek Powder is warm blush pink colour with a little bit of shimmer. I quite enjoy using this blush over Cha Cha Tint or Posie Tint, but this colour on its own gives a nice rosy flush to your cheek, which is perfect for summer. It might look quite light, but it actually shows up really well your skin. I think it could be similar to Hervana where it still show up as a natural flush on deeper skin tone.
As for the Inferno Lip Gloss, it is a berry red with gold shimmer. I love the silky smooth feeling of this gloss, and it's not the sticky type of lip gloss. It has just the right amount of pigmentation that I usually look for in gloss. Kind of transparent and has a tint of colour in it. It can also be built up to a more intense red gloss, but I like to apply lightly for a berry red tint. It has the same cherry candy scent that is present in other benefit lip gloss which lingers for a minute of so.
This kit also comes with They're Real Mascara, which will be a whole separate review. It also comes with a tips & tricks leaflet for those of you who need some help or just some inspiration to get the look.

I feel that this is a great kit for Summer. For me, I would like a matte shade, because I'm a matte eyeshadow kinda girl (if Get Down Brown is matte, it will make me a very happy girl). But that doesn't take away the quality of the palette. While the eyeshadows are not the most pigmented, it can be built up. I especially like the blush and the lip gloss because the blush gives a natural flush, while the gloss gives just bitten lips. They're Real mascara is also a nice bonus, because it's just a great mascara. Not to mention this kit has one of the most beautiful packaging I have ever seen. I wish they make a poster or a wallpaper in that print.
