Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all well and have had a fabulous week so far. I have an excited day tomorrow full of meetings and shopping so i am really looking forward to a day out! My new chanel will be making another appearance tomorrow haha.
As i am posting more frequently now i want to make sure i post a variety of different goodies to show you. So today i thought it would be fun to do a kind of collection post. The possibilities are endless when it comes to collection posts but i decided to show you all of my 'Benefit Box Blushers' which i have accumulated over the years. I absolutely love them and i cannot wait to add to my collection!
Also, i was Benefits Blogger of the Month throughout June so i was super excited to get a new post up showing you some of my Benefit goodies in my makeup collection :D
So as you can see my collection consists of four of the Benefit Box Blushers. Sugarbomb, Hoola, Coralista and Bella Bamba. Even though i have four types i actually have six in my collection as i have back ups in my collection for when i run out...thats how much i love these!
My collection consists of a mixture between the old school and new packaging...however, even thought the outer packaging has changed the product and the mini brushes which come included are still the same.
Benefit Hoola is one of the famous Box Blushers from Benefit as it is a favoured bronzer throughout the bbloggersphere and beauty community. I actually have two of these in my collection as it is my go to bronzer on a daily basis pared with my NARS Laguna. The packaging has changed slightly now, as you can see the box on the left has a lid which is attached and the one on the right is the old school packaging where the lid comes completely off. The one on the right is almost completely gone...i seriously didnt want to show you it as literally there are only crumbs left which i am still trying to use up every last drop off (and the packaging is pretty battered...wahhh!)
Hoola is a very versatile blusher which can be layered up for a more define bronzed contour look or brushed over the skin lightly for a light sunkissed look. I love contouring and warming my face up with this bronzer, just makes you look like you have walked off an aeroplane from a vacation in the sun. After bronzing through the Benefit Website...i discovered that Hoola is actually the UK's Best Selling Bronzer...pretty amazing!
This has completely hit pan and is one of my all time favourite blushers. At first you think that the four shades included in this blush look quite shocking...however, when swirled together they create the most beautiful light pink / coral shade which i packed full of shimmer...the perfect 2-in-1 blushers and highlighter. Whenever i wear this on a night out i always get compliments on how it looks! Not only do i love the shades i also love the name...Sugarbomb just sound so fun and it actually smells pretty yummy too! After seeing how much i have hit pan on this little gem i am seriously contemplating to purchase a back up tomorrow!
This is a shade i haven't used as much as you can tell as it looks virtually brand new. Believe it or not i picked this up on my travels a few years ago from Sephora in Barcelona. It had just been released at the time and i instantly fell in love with it so naturally i had to add it to my collection. On the packaging it states that it is a '3D Pink' and it really is as it is another Boxed Blusher which is packed full of beautiful shimmer like Sugarbomb. When this blusher first released it instantly made my thing of my little Yorkie Bella...so every time i use it i instantly think about 'Bella Bamba' & 'Bella' haha...just a little fun fact for you all!
I initially went in to purchase this Boxed Blusher when i actually purchased Sugarbomb so i actually got this the Christmas after in a fun Christmas Set by Benefit. This is another cult product by Benefit which is widely know throughout the beauty community. True to it's name this is a stunning Coral blush which has slight shimmer in much like Sugarbomb and Bella Bamba. I think this would be an amazing shade to pair with a tan on vacation or even throughout the winter for that ice cold bitten cheek look...it is extremely versatile. I love how it can cheer up your skin tone almost instantly!
Overall, i absolutely love these Benefit Boxed Blushers! I love how they look packaging wise and how they look perfect on display. The colours are so fun and always catch my eye! Also, they are extremely long-wearing so you will get your moneys worth as mine have lasted me a good 18 months to 2 years using them regularly in many day and evening makeup looks. I only have Dandelion, Dallas and Hervana to try now...if you have tried them i would love to know your thoughts on them :D Also, Benefit are soon to be releasing their new Boxed Blsuhed 'Rockateur' which i am extremely excited about!!
