Benefit Bella Bamba Blusher. £23.50

Ahhh the Benefit boxed blushers. How I long to get my greedy little mitts on them all! However, for now, I only have the lonely one. The first to kick start my love of those adorable little boxes of beauty came in the form of Bella Bamba. I got this for Christmas in the 'Hot 2 Trot' Gift Set along with Cha Cha Tint, and it was love at first swatch (paha, how cheesy).
The Hot 2 Trot Gift Set is currently on sale in Debenhams for only £18.80 (link). Absolute bargain considering the blush on it's own is £23.50.

Benefit's Bella Bamba is described as a '3D Watermelon Blush', the first of it's kind. The scent, as you might have guessed, is watermelon (which I adore) and I think the 3D aspect is supposed to give the cheekbones that extra dimension and sculpted effect. I'm not sure it does anything different to other blushers in that respect, but that's OK. The blush is a lovely bright coral, packed with golden shimmer that does look like it could be too much, but once applied it just gives a lovely natural rosy glow to the skin. Obviously, I don't use the brush that comes with it (who actually uses those?), but I find it works perfectly with my MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush. My love for the Benefit boxed blushers is official, it's full blown and there's no going back. Next on my list... Rockateur!

Which Benefit Boxed Beauties do you own?
