Hey my Wonderful readers :) I hope you are all well :)
Today I am Reviewing my first ever REAL Benefit Blush :) :) I know I know you are probably shocked that this is my first but to be honest with me been a bargain hunter I found it very hard to part with 30 something euro for 1 blush when i have so many really really good blushes that cost me 3 time less than that. Now i bet you are wondering what i ment by REAL well i have got 5 Benefit blushes to my collection but they are fake (very good fakes might i add) so i feel even more excited that i finally have a real one to my collection. Now i actually got this blush from a blogsale a few weeks ago and all i paid was between 7-10 euro for it and all the girl did was swatch it pretty good eh?
I have been wanting to try this particular blush since it was released in Spring 2011
Would you look at the packaging :) Isn't it a sight for sore eyes. Its so so girly and sparkly. It has a 3D effect all over it I Love it. It also has a new flip over lid to it which is alot handier that the old packaging which you had to take the lid off each time you use it. Plus there is a mirror on the lid which Benefit never had with the older versions. It comes with a little brush that can be handy for travel but to be honest when at home i prefer my own blush brush :)
The mirror has a plastic covering over it thats why it looks cloudy :)
In the Beauty Blogging world this blush has been compared to the Nars Orgasm blush and also a better version of the Benefit Coralista. By the Looks of the swatches of both Bella Bamba looks more intense in colour than Coralista and sure does resemble Nars Orgasm actually Bella Bamba looks like it could be more on the pigmented side.
So Benefit states
Amplify cheekbones and create the illusion of sculpted features with this 3D watermelon blush. Laced with shimmering gold undertones, takes eye-popping pretty to the third dimension...you'll never use traditional blush again!
Oh Ladies I am in total AWWWWW Looking at this picture and so pleased i actually have this blush. Its amazing. You will see that this shade is a BEAUTIFUL Peachy Pink/watermelon Pink . It has a beautiful gold sparkle....when i seen it first i thought oh no its shimmer I am going to look like a disco ball......but dont let the shimmer fool ye ladies :)
This blush will certainly without a doubt suit every skin tone for sure!!!! Its extremely pigmented and a little goes a long long way. Now there maybe a lot of shimmer in it but it works it really does. It leave the most wonderful glow on your cheeks and instantly make you shine. Awww im in love really i am but if you do not like shimmer all you have to do is apply lightly and even at that you are getting a beautiful pinky flush to the cheek :)
I am even more excited about having this as its coming into the winter now and I can imagine myself out in the snow with my foundation lightly done Bella Bamba on my cheeks(for the nice pinky glowy look) and a red nose (well we all get that in the snow lol) and red lips it will look beautiful. Oh and i totally forgot about mentioning the scent oh wow i can not really pinpoint the actual scent but i can easily say it smells lightly fruity i love it :)
Overall I think you can guess I LOVE IT!!! The scent, the shade, the application, the packaging everything I love and i Highly recommend it to everyone even ones who don't like shimmery blushes as this lightly applied looks more glowing than shimmer but of course if you go crazy with it you will look like a disco ball.
