Benefit GALifornia Boxed Blush

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.

    I really like the colour but I really wish they would finally get on board with using more sturdy packaging. They’re always super cute but the high sides get so stained with product and I am a wrecking ball of a human, everything always ends up dented lol! Think I might get the new lighter hoola bronzer though, looks pretty good, have you tried it? x

      Hi lovely. Oh yes totally agree with the packaging! Would look so nice in a sturdy box and be more practical. No I havent had a swatch of that yet but its a great addition as the regular Hoola can be quite dark on fair skin 🙂 x

    I really like the Benefit Dandelion Blush, I got it in a small boxset for Christmas and it’s a really subtle shade. I love the look of this shade – it looks perfect for Spring! x

    I recently bought their Blushin’ Babe set, but feel like I might have to add to the collection! The packaging of this blush is beyond gorgeous, and need we talk about how perfect the shade looks for Spring/Summer?!
