The Charm’s in the Cheeks – Benefit

Blush – I had avoided it for years, I always thought that it made me look like such a tart or overdone. Now, I don’t go a day without using it and will even layer on more for day to night look *gasp* Blush can be very sophisticated or flirty, it is the perfect finishing touch for any look. I have been using a lot of cream and liquid blushes lately as I have found that I don’t much like the look of my powder blushes. I recently purchased a couple of products from the Dandelion line by Benefit Cosmetics and received a teenie box of the Dandelion brightening face powder with my order. It was too stinking adorable but it has been sitting in a drawer since I just haven’t been into powders recently. On whim, I cracked it open a few weeks ago and it was love at first swipe 😛 This teenie box of powder sparked an instant desire to own all of these lovely little boxes – at 29$ a pop though, I knew that was not going to happen. Colour me delighted when I found the Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer palette at ULTA.

And you get quite the variety, it includes a bronzer (hoola), 2 blushers (dandelion & coralista), 1 blusher/bronzer (dallas) and an illuminating blusher (rockateur) plus a brush.Dandelion is subtle enough to be used just as it says for all over face brightening – by all over I mean forehead cheeks, etc. Dallas is perfect, it is a very unique tone that is deep enough for fall looks but also imparts a summery glow. Coralista is a lovely coral and Hoola is a cool-toned bronze. I have yet to use the shimmery powder Rockateur mostly because it just looks so pretty in the pan 😀

This formula is super easy to use and blend out, it doesn’t flake and stays pretty much just where you want it. Of course, the box is gorgeous and contains a full mirror but I wouldn’t anticipate traveling with the whole palette.Great quality, an incredible bargain and the perfect addition to any blush lovers arsenal.
