Benefit Powder Swatches

As I have quite a few of Benefits blushers and bronzers I thought it might be helpful to do a little comparison for anyone thinking of making a purchase.

As you can see I’ve used some more than others but I have to say I love them all. I find them really easy to blend and really buildable.

‘Dandelion’ is a really pretty, girly pink. I like to use it dabbed on the apple of my cheeks over a bronzer.

‘Coralista’ is my go-to everyday blusher. It gives a really flattering peachy glow to the skin that looks just as good on a tan as on winter skin.

’10’ is shimmery bronzer and highlighter duo that I use as a bronzer in the winter and a highlighter when I’m more tanned. It gives a really nice finish on the skin without being sparkly – too shimmery to be used for contouring though.

‘Dallas’ is plum toned blush that Benefit claim makes you glow. I have to say I love this colour, it’s surprisingly flattering even on my pale skin. It’s quite dark in colour but much more wearable than bronzer.

‘Hoola’ is Benefit’s quintessential broonzer and as you can see I’ve had it quite a while! I really wear it unless I already have a tan as I find it a bit too dark otherwise. I’ve heard lots of people say they love it for their pale skin (Caggie Dunlop, I’m looking at you) but you would need to be very careful with it. A perfect matte colour for contouring though.

Hoola, Dallas, 10, Coralista, Dandelion

Benefit have recently changed the style of their packaging which means you get slightly less product for your money but as it’s hard to get through a blusher I don’t think it’s too much of a problem. There are three more cheek powders that I haven’t got but they look gorgeous too.

Benefit powders are available for Boots at £23.50.
