I’m really loving the latest addition to the Benefit blusher line. Hardly surprising, I’m already a big fan of the various other shades (coralista is almost certainly my no1 blush and I love Benefit/Hoola for bronzing…).
Bella Bamba is a ‘watermelon pink’ with a golden shimmer that is described as a 3D powder, I don’t really get the 3D thing but I adore the colour of this blusher. It’s a healthy pink and the shimmery gold makes it look very pretty – if you like a bit of shimmer, a-al Nars Orgasm, then check this out.
Having been introduced to it at an event held a couple of weeks ago, I got to see it applied to a range of skin tones and can honestly say it suited every single one – and looked different on each one too! Of course, on paler skin you do need a slightly lighter hand but I think it looks gorgeously glowy and lasts all day long with no need to touch up.
I have been using this colour almost daily for the past couple of weeks and already know it will become a staple in my collection – really recommend trying it out, whatever your skin tone.

Also worth a mention is the new packaging design, I kinda like it and kinda don’t – I didn’t have a problem with the box design. Yes, it was bulky but for some reason, I quite liked it. Post-redesign the box is still pretty bulky but a tiny bit smaller (with a smaller amount of product too apparently). The inclusion of a mirror is ok – but still not a mirror size I’d use. But I do like that the Benefit bods are thinking about these things a bit!
