Benefit Fine One One


Benefit Cosmetics Fine One One*, £23.50
available online and on counters now

When I first heard about the launch of this innovative, new cheek product from Benefit Cosmetics, I was very excited indeed. As a huge fan of their boxed powders and a recent covert to twist-up-swipe-on cream blushers, this seemed like my kind of thing! Fine One One is a sheer, skin-brightening cream to powder cheek tint which can be used on your lips as well. The three layers of colours, as sweet looking as a Neapolitan ice cream, are designed to lift, brighten and add a pop of colour to your cheeks. The shades, pink champagne, sheer watermelon and soft coral, work beautifully together and produce a gorgeous, cheery colour which would suit almost all skin tones.


The consistency is smooth and glossy and glides onto your skin like a breeze. The trio of shades leave a very definite strip of colour when applied but once you have gently blended the product in with your fingertips, you are left with a very subtle coral-pink sheen. The beauty of this product is that it is light, easy to blend and completely buildable so you can keep it sheer and subtle or go back for a second sweep and amp up the intensity. Fine One One has been three long years in the making but without a doubt it is going to be another fine success for the brand and I am already hoping for another colour combination in the near future…

    It looks pretty but I think I'll stick to their boxed blushes as I love Hervana so much! x

    Honestly until your review, I haven't been too impressed with this product; it seemed like it was just another highlighter. But your application looks amazing and has changed my mind. Gorgeous! And on a side note, keep up the blogging because you do such a great job, definitely one of my favorites ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love blush! This colour looks really pretty on you! I am always to scared to try Benefit because it's so expensive

    Please come and check out my latest post if you have a few minutes spare ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think I wouldn't even look twice at this product if I hadn't seen how lovely it looks on your skin as the stripes scare me off a little, you look gorgeous with it on though ๐Ÿ™‚

    How funny would it be if you forgot to blend it?

    It looks great X

  27. 27th January 2013 / 9:25 pm

    I think I'm going to have to treat myself to some of this!

  28. 27th January 2013 / 11:21 pm

    When I saw the product itself I was like "WTF is it, is Benefit serious?" lol But then I saw it on your face, blended into the skin and awww it is sooo pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚ I cant believe there is only one shade of it ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Though I love this one, but still ๐Ÿ™‚

    I've used this myself and it is fantastic! Great post:) x

    This looks like such a good product. I can imagine that you can use the colours individually, even as a eye shadow (then set it).
    The blush really looks good on you. Am tempted to try it out myself.
