It has been a while since we welcomed a new Benefit box ‘o powder onto the makeup scene but I can tell you now, this latest release was definitely worth the wait. Galifornia Blush is a box full of sunshine. Californian sun. The soft, warm pink mingles with shimmery gold to give you a splash of Summer for your cheeks.
This sunny golden-pink has a hint of peachy coral to it too and finishes with a very slight shimmer that really lifts and highlights your complexion. The golden shimmer is simply an overspray so as pretty as it looks, it will fade after a few uses. The aztec, solar embossment is a nice touch and I think this box ‘o powder could be one of the prettiest so far from Benefit. The outer packaging is inspired by the free-spirited Cali vibe and 1970’s vintage surfer girls. Its so fun and I can practically hear California Dreamin’ playing in the background.
The colour is a great choice as the weather starts hotting up and of course comes with the handy rounded brush and inside mirror. Oh and I almost forgot, the powder is scented so as you swirl the blush, you are met with notes of sunny pink grapefruit and vanilla. Close your eyes and you could almost be on the West Coast. Almost.
