Today I thought I would show you guys this 'cheeky sweet spot' palette by benefit (box of blushers). Although this was given to me as a christmas present I thought it was still relevant to show you guys, as each blush/bronzer is available to by all year round. oh and a heads up there are a lot of posed pictures..
Dandelion is a lovely light pink blush with a hint of shimmer. Benefit say that it's mean't to be used as a brightening face powder, but for I definitely prefer it as a blush. It gives a very nice pale flushed look on my skin tone, which would be perfect for a hardly any makeup look/natural look. Another thing about this is that it smells good, slightly floral hint to it. This scent doesn't last long though once the powder is on your skin. (ps the shade is lighter than the swatch picture on the left).
Now i'm not to sure where you can find this blush. I have read that it is has been discounted and it definitely isn't stocked on the UK website. Bella Bamba is a bright/watermelon pink shade with gold shimmer. Now i'm not to sure if I like this shade. It does have great pigmentation and a nice scent again. Maybe if I toned it down a bit this might grow on me. Definitely one for summer I would say.
Sugar Bomb has 4 different triangles all of which have their own shade, one is a peach shade, two are pinks and a muted lilac. I like them all blended together creating a subtle peachy pink shade with a nice fine shimmer. It's not as pigmented as it looks from the swatch (I built the swatch up to show the colour). It is very sheer so great for lighter toned skin.
Hoola is a lovely matte brown bronzer. Now on me it is fairly dark and very scary before it is blended out. It's still a bit too dark for me to wear as an everyday bronzer. I would definitely stick to my body shop one. However this is great for contouring and sculpting the face. I love using this on a night out to make my cheekbone pop more.
Coralista is a lovely coral. It's the definite in-between of a pink and orange blush. It has a gorgeous gold shimmer running through it and I definitely think i'll be wearing this one when I've got more of a tan. The scent of this one differs as it smells a bit more fruity I would say.. Definitely happy with this one.
Onto my favourite of them all rockateur it's a muted dusty rose shade. In this palette it hasn't got the shimmer effect as it does in the box version which I don't mind as it's still a very pretty shade.
Also in this set came a small sample size of watt's up which is a lovely cream highlighter and one of their box brushes that you get in the box. I hope they bring this out again at christmas as I think it's definitely worth getting and a cheaper alternative to all of their boxes.
What's your favourite shade or blush in general?
see you soon, han xo
