Benefit cosmetics - Hervana Blusher.

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a good day! Today I am going review one of my all time favourite blushers which is Hervana by Benefit. I really struggle with blushers and can never really find one that works with my skin, but this one is great! 

First of all this blusher comes in a really cutely decorated little box which looks very heavenly and is perfect for a "good karma" face powder. The box is quite small and contains a nice mirror and small brush, so it is perfect for taking away with you. Also another great thing about this box is that the excess powder doesn't full out, so you don't get much waste with this product.

The blush itself contains four different shades: a very light pink, peach, a light musky pink and an orchid colour. When applying I swirl the colours together with my brush and it leaves you with a really nice subtle pink colour on your cheeks. 

I love this blusher as naturally I have quite red cheeks so when I usually apply blusher it just makes my cheeks too bright, but like I said this leaves a really natural and subtle colour which gives a nice glow. Also I find that for the winter months when my cheeks are calmer it is really easy to build this colour up.

I would say this blusher has a mostly matte finish which makes it a perfect everyday blusher but it does also contain a very slight shimmer. I find that this blusher has a good last time and lasts me for a good 7 hours before I need to think about reapplying it. Also I've had this blusher for 6 months and I still have loads left, so even though this product is a bit pricey you don't need to keep repurchasing it.

(Sorry that you can't really see the blusher on my hand, my camera refused to pick it up!)

You can purchase this blusher for £23.50, so like I said it is a bit on the pricey side! But I love it and will definitely be repurchasing it when I run out (which I think will be a while!) You can buy it here:
