Here we go girls, I’m feeding my blush addiction again! This time I have the Benefit GALifornia blush, the latest and greatest blush release from the brand. First off, you don’t know how badly I wanted to keep typing California every time I wrote the name. It was hard, lol. I ended up buying this blush because I don’t have any full size ones from Benefit, and I just couldn’t pass up on the gorgeous color and design of this one. I am already positive that it’s going to be my go-to summer blush!
Seriously, how gorgeous is that golden sun design?? Unfortunately, the gold is just an overspray that was almost completely gone after swatching it 1 time. I tend to like a bit of shimmer in my blushes, and I wish this one lasted a little bit longer. Nonetheless, it’s still a beautifully warm coral/pink shade with a subtle fruity/floral scent. I can only really smell it when I swirl my brush and apply it, after that I don’t notice the scent at all.
I think it has the perfect formula and pigment. It’s not powdery and it goes on evenly. I don’t have to be light handed or work too hard to get this to show up. Every day that I’ve worn this it has lasted me all day, 8+ hours (even outside on the hot & sunny days!)
Overall, I love my Benefit GALifornia blush, faded overspray or not. The color is perfection, the formula is easy to work with, and it smells great too! Above, I am also wearing the Benefit They’re Real Double the Lip lipstick in Pink Thrills (reviewed HERE.) In my opinion, it is a bit expensive for a single blush. However, I got it for $10 off at HSN when they sent me a coupon. Plus, shipping was free so I think it is definitely worth it for the price I paid!
So, what do you think of the newest blush release from Benefit? Do you have any other favorites from the brand??
