Good way to try the brandI only had a couple of items from Ilia beauty (a highlighter stick and a lip scrub) and this was a great way to discover more.
The bag doesn't look too good in person and I would probably not use it, having so many other bags from various places. The powder is in really small quantity and I haven't tried the Cucumber stick yet. The lip balm is absolutely amazing with a watermelon-y colour - lips look juicy and are well moisturised.
The kit is a good way to try the brand, but I doubt I would repurchase.

Good quality and usefulI started using this in winter, so can't speak to performance in hot weather yet.
The lip balm is really great, much more pigmented than my usual lip balms, I use it in place of a lip colour. Even though you don't get to pick the colour, it just comes with the set, the shade looks great with my skin tone.
The cucumber stick is very cooling when you apply it and gets absorbed really fast. Not sure how moisturizing it actually is, I wouldn't skip moisturizer in favor of this. For a quick touch up though, it makes sense.
The transluscent powder is nice. I definitely haven't noticed a white cast. I see it as most useful when you'e decided to use a super hydrating moisturizer before makeup, that doesn't dry down immediately. In this case, it does mattify a little, without taking away the glow.

Great DealI love natural brands, and Ilia is one off my favourite! I use the powder to set my makeup and I love that it has SPF20 for additional sun protection. The lipstick is lightly tinted and with SPF15, perfect for no makeup days. Then the cucumber stick is great when the weather gets too hot, it really helps me cool off!

Superb setThis is excellent value apart from the fact it contains lovely and useful products. The powder is in a handy container for travelling and the cucumber stick is also excellent for holidays because it doesn’t take up precious liquid allowance. The bag is attractive and a good size. This would make a lovely gift for anyone who travels a lot.

Great setThis is a great set! The powder is light and natural, is great for both summer and winter as it isn’t drying on the skin, it’s easy to have in the bag to touch up during the day. The stick is fresh and mild, gives fast hydration. The lipbalm has a nice color, like a natural burnt lip shade and it has spf. The makeup bag is a nice extra.
