Pink Pinwheel

Benefit's boxed powders are infamous in the beauty world. I was sent this in a swap but I don't know why it didn't occur to me to pick one up earlier, as I have mentioned before I like one thing in a blush - easy application. Whilst I've dabbled in more pigmented blushes, being fair skinned often thwarts my dreams of pulling off bright red or orange blushes. So I fall back on the pale pinks. Me and Hervana were meant to be.





This blush contains four shades that when swirled together form a light pink colour. You would think that it would be possible to use each shade individually but you would literally have to use an eye shadow brush to concentrate on each individual shade. The blush has floral scent to it, which is actually very pleasant when you are applying it, but I'm not sure how I feel about companies who put fragrance in makeup, as it is very bad for the skin :(


Swatched Together, Swatched Individually (forgot the beige sorry)

When you apply this blush it forms a very "naturally pretty" look. It doesn't look over the top, in fact I can't imagine anyone looking at you whilst wearing this and saying, look that girl is wearing blush! You can't really over apply it easily either, which I really like. The texture of the powder is very soft and it applies beautifully to the skin, and lasts all day.


Naturally flushed

The final verdict? Hell yeah I would recommend this blush, It's perfect for a naturally glowing look. It has been on high rotation since I got it and I haven't even made a dent in it either! My first experience with a Benefit boxed powder is yes they are totally worth the hype. I now have my eye on Sugarbomb... Must resist!

Also if you are ordering from Benefit Aussie girls, you can order directly from their US website and save a lot of money. And you can even get free shipping over $100!

Have you tried the Benefit boxed powders before?
