A huge welcome to the new kid on the block!
Yesterday I was blessed enough to get my hands on the new Benefit Box O Powder 6 weeks before the official launch. I have had quite a few of the Benefit face powder boxes and I have adored every single one and Rockateur did not disappoint!
Firstly, the colour is perfect, it looks quite dark in the box but when you apply it, it is much lighter. It is a rose gold with a satin finish. I’d describe the shade as somewhere between a blusher and bronzer. I’m quite pale and so I can’t usually get away with bronzer as I just look ridiculous, however this shade is perfect for me as it is still fairly pink but gives me a gorgeous sun-kissed look.
I know a lot of people dislike the brushes provided in Benefit blushers but I always love them, in fact I keep them once them once the powder is finished. They’re always gorgeously soft and I manage to get an accurate application to my cheek bone. This one has also had a redesign, it’s a new brush that is more accurate. The overall result of this one is quite natural and very pretty.
It lasts really well, I put it on yesterday about 11:30am and it was still there at 6:30pm looking lovely. I also like to ad a bit of high beam to define my cheeks and it works well with this one too.
Have you ever noticed how good all the Benefit blushes smell too? This one is just as good as all the others. It smells wonderfully fragrant, which makes it feel even more luxurious.
There is clearly less powder in this one than most of the others, Benefit do print the weights on the front of all the boxes so they have made that clear, they also assure us that it will last just as long as you need less each time. The price is still the same as all the others even though it has less product but the formula used to make this costs more. It uses the latest ‘prisma technology’ which combines all the best bits of a cream, powder and baked blusher. This product really does work so I forgive them for the lower amount of product and it wouldn’t deter me from repurchasing it.
It’s out on sale from 7th September 2013 and retails at £23.50 so get that in your diaries now. It’s also out in time to make it onto the Christmas list… if you can wait that long!
