A nice little treat for the face

Advantages: Excellent quality
Disadvantages: A little on the expensive side...
I decided to part with £23.50 for this powder after a Benefit store assistant applied it to my face. I instantly fell in love with it and it's adorable packaging!
The powder contains four different colours that are designed to be swirled together and applied to the face with the brush that comes inside the box. The brush is a nice little addition and it's perfectly shaped to fit into the box, so you can keep it in there - no more lost brushes! The different shades in the compact are peach, soft plum, pink and rose. The shades compliment each other well and they're all stunning. Also, the powder has a pleasant fruity scent to it that was unexpected but a nice surprise.
Once the powders have been swirled together they create a stunning look that's soft and feminine and completely gorgeous. The powder can be applied over foundation to highlight the cheekbones. I usually apply it over mineral foundation (powder foundation) and the powder manages to not only highlight my cheekbones but it adds a lovely shimmer to my cheekbones too. The powder can be applied on it's own but I think it looks better when it's teamed up with something else. Plus it lasts a lot longer then.
This product is a little on the expensive side but it's excellent quality and it really does last forever. You can also apply the powder individually with a small brush, as opposed to swirling the four colours around together. Just select the colour you desire and apply the one colour on it's own.
A lovely face powder.
Summary: Worth paying extra for
