Benefit has a new blush box on the scene…and when Benefit launches a new blush box you can pretty much guarantee it’s going to be something special. This one is a shimmer and rose gold sort of shade to it – with the rose element really dialled up. It delivers a really gorgeous glow…
On the skin it looks a slightly more of a warm terracotta type of shade with a blusher-ish warm tone to it. Very hard to describe, but it does look different on the skin to how it looks in the pan.
In the pan it has both a shimmer element and a matte area – so the overall ‘glow factor’ on the skin is a real combination of matte and shimmer to deliver the perfect balance of the two so skin looks really healthy and natural.
Also, slightly odd thing to mention – but it smells really good too!? I know…odd to smell your blusher, but hey, I noticed it smells good…so thought I’d mention it.
Also, packaging wise – this has the flip lid rather than removing totally as some of the older styles did. It has a good size mirror too. Also, the brush seems to have had a bit of a make-over on the previous models. Usually they’re quite square and not very easy to use. But this one has curved edges and is actually quite soft – and I’ve actually been using this to apply. Something pretty rare with brushes that come with product.
A gorgeous shade – good work Benebabes!
