Advantages: Gorgeous peachy scent that creates a gorgeous peachy look!
Disadvantages: Not currently sold in retail shops, only online.
I have another confession to make... (as the Foo Fighters once sang) that I am becoming rather addicted to the Benefit Box blushes, bronzers and highlights - basically anything they put in a pretty packaged box with a handy brush I'm having! I tried and tested the ones that were available to me in Boots and was on the look for a new one. That's when I noticed a friend of mine had one called 'Georgia' I hadn't seen it around and she told me that it was an older one that wasn't currently stocked in Boots or Superdrug. Determined to try and find one I took a leaf out of Sherlock Holmes book and did some research! Luckily a lot of people were still on the look out for this blush and I managed to find it online on a multitude of sites. Win!
The packaging is one of the best I would have to say, a gorgeous pinky orange box with a cute little motif of a pale pink peach with a bright green stalk at the top. Across the bottom is the word 'Georgia' and the weight which is 11g or 0.4oz - quite a lot of product, so you know you are getting your moneys worth! On the back are the ingredients and a little bit about the product and how to apply such as; 'Dust this peaches and cream powder lightly all over your complexion then brush on the apples of your cheeks for a warm, happy glow.'
When you lift off the lid, you are presented with the blusher and the handy brush that all the Benefit Blushers come with. This particular one is the same pinky shade as the box with white bristles which are very helpful as you can see how much product you have picked up. I love the whole look of this blusher as it fresh, fruity and fun! I was so excited to try it!
The shade is described as peachy (hence the picture on the front) I would go further to say that overall it is a very pink shade that has a lot of coral and peach tones throughout. It could fall into both the pink and the coral category as it possesses both the colours to satisfy both. I personally think this is brilliant as sometimes pink shades leave me looking like a china doll and coral shades leave me looking orange, so a combination of the two is perfect for me!
I like to apply this with the brush that comes with it rather than my own blusher brush purely because of the shape of the bristles - a usual brush's bristles are arranged in a circular fashion which is great for blending in and creating apples on your cheeks, but with this brush they are arranged in a straight line which is absolutely great for creating or sculpting cheekbones! So I simply sweep the brush over the blush and then in straight lines apply to my cheeks - don't swirl it as it will cover too much of the surface and won't appear polished. Once on this blush creates the perfect 'peaches and cream' complexion giving a healthy and natural glow without being too over the top. The shade is amazing and would suit every skin tone as it is so varied. Its very sheer so there is no danger of putting on too much, however you can build it up for a slightly more bolder look.
Benefit also claim on their website that this looks great 'dusted on the eye lids' I thought this was quite a silly idea at first - who puts blusher on their eyelids? But then I tried it and realised exactly what they meant! If you take a fluffy brush or even your finger and just apply a teeny, tiny bit over your eyelids it makes your eyes look so much more awake and lifted - a little like the Benefit Lemonaid but Peachaid instead!
Another thing I absolutely love is the scent - it smells just like peaches and is extremely divine! I love the peach water that you can get and this smells just like that so when im applying it its even more refreshing! However it isn't over powering and doesn't linger but it is noticeable as my boyfriend commented on it and boys never notice much!
I love this blusher and even though it is quite expensive at £23.50, if you shop around on the online sights you can find it for cheaper. But it does last for a long time and its one of those make up products that you actually look forward to putting on and wearing!
Summary: A brilliant blush that will make it feel like summer all year round!
