Benefit Bella Bamba blush - a first look

Hello there!
After seeing swatches and reading reviews I couldn't resist it anymore!
I caved in and decided to buy Benefit's latest boxed blush- Bella Bamba.



My thoughts-

On the product:
I think this is a great addition to my growing blush collection.
It's very pretty, quite pigmented and super easy to work with. It's a watermelon pink (meaning, it's a bright and deep pink- a rosy pink) with a pretty gold sheen to it.

On the packaging:
I'm not a fan of these boxed powder blushes because I find them inconvenient and bulky. This one in particular is different from Benefit's usual boxed blushes as this one flips open and close. At first I had a hard time opening the lid because I had to wiggle it to open since I didn't want to rip the box. I'm getting the hang of it, but I still don't particularly like the flip top packaging.

On the price:
Benefit's blushes are $28 for a full sized box and this is no exception. Although I do think it's quite expensive, I have high hopes that this blush will last me years to come! So with that thought in mind, I don't feel so guilty about forking over almost $30 for one blush. =)

Overall:
Yes, I do recommend this blush.
If you wanted to only get one blush from Benefit's blush collection- this would be it!

Now for your viewing pleasure, the swatches!




Thanks for reading ladies!
