Advantages: Looks great, feels nice, even smells nice, great brush
Disadvantages: Impractical packaging, expensive
I don't normally buy Benefit make-up as I'm on a budget and it's rather expensive, but my sisters both use this and have got me into using it as well! It costs £23.50 and you can find it online or at Benefit counters in department stores.
The packaging is really cute but not entirely practical. It's a square little box with a pull off lid and no way to fasten it so that it doesn't come open, so it's no good for carrying around with you for touch-ups. In the box as well as the powder is a little brush whcih is a very neat little size to fit perfectly in the box.
The powder is a pale pink with a slight shimmer to it, and it has a lovely soft floral scent to it, so much nicer than most make-up smells. The brush is not the usual sort of brush you get supplied inside the packagin of blushers, it's kind of square, with half the square being the handle and half being the brush. The handle is a good size to hold and work with, and the brush is also a good size for applying blusher with.
The powder picks up easily onto the brush so you don't have to spend ages just trying to get enough colour on the brush, and the brush feels lovely and soft on my skin when I apply it. The colour transfers onto the skin nicely and doesn't feel heavy. Only a small amount is needed to give a healthy glow to the cheeks, or it can be built up for a more obvious blusher look. As well as using it as a blusher it can be used as an all over face powder to brighten the face, but i don't personally use it like this.
It stays on my skin really well so I don't find I keep needing to top it up throughout the day, though if I was going for drinks after work it would ned topping up by that time.
All in all I think this is a great blush, especially for to give a bit of colour to pale skin. It's just a shame it's so expensive, but it does last ages!
Summary: A lovely blush but very expensive!
