Benefit Cheekathon

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been a bit MIA recently on my blog I've been so busy trying to finish my dissertation, I'm hopefully handing it in on Tuesday though so that will be a massive relief if I can manage it! I'm just going to have a weekend dedicated to finishing it, as depressing as that thought is because I just need it to be over. I've been trying to save money recently because I've got so many expensive things coming up, but when I got an email last week from Benefit's newsletter promoting their new blush and bronzer kit I actually could not resist buying it, purely because it was such good value! Usually around Christmas Benefit releases blush kits but half the time they aren't full size so it's not really that good value, but in the kit they just released they have 4 full size blushes and a full size Hoola for £44.50 which is insanely good! Considering one of their Box'O'Powders is £23.50 and you get five full size ones in this kit you're saving so much money. I've always loved Benefit's blushes anyway and I needed another Hoola so it kind of turned it into a bit of a need rather than a want for me!


It comes in a really cute little palette with a nice big mirror, it's thankfully not too bulky because I think Benefit can sometimes have a bit too much packaging but this is a decent size.


Benefit was actually one of the first brands that really got me into makeup because I was always so obsessed with their packaging and this kit definitely doesn't disappoint, really pretty illustrations and girly packaging so standard Benefit really. You also get a little how to guide with some looks you can create with the palette.

You get a full size Hoola in this and the blushes are Dandelion , Rockateur, Dallas and Coralista along with a little brush. I don't think I will be using the brush though but it's good if you're travelling. I actually really like these palettes for travelling because you get a mixture of products all in one rather than bringing lots of loose products.






Left to right: Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas, Coralista

I'm so obsessed with this palette I'm so happy that I bought it! I feel like I'm so set blush wise now for ages and definitely won't have to be buying more anytime soon. The quality of all of them is so nice, I've always loved Rockateur but I've never tried Dallas and that is probably my favourite from the kit. I actually love all the new products that Benefit has released recently, I want the liquid version of Dandelion so much but it's out of stock at the minute, plus it's expensive and I definitely can't justify it after having a full set of blushes to work through now. All their new Hoola products look so nice as well, they have made me feel so summery! I really think this palette is worth buying while it's still in stock, I'm actually surprised it's still available as it's such good value, let me know in the comments if you've tried any of these shades and what you think!

  13. The value for money on this palette is amazing, you definitely get your moneys worth. I'd say the only downside would be you can't just chuck it in your pocket to top up but you've got everything in one place which is why it's also great! Dallas is gorgeous!

    1. I know it's good and it's bad because it's all in one place but if you just want to take one somewhere you have to bring all of them!x

  14. I wish you could take the pans out of the packet and slot them in a smaller, thinner palette, these are always so bulky.

  19. I have to say I was a little surprised at the price as they brought out something similar the Christmas before last for £30 but it's really great as a place to start with their products. I love Rockateur and would really like to try Dallas xx

  20. Rockateur is just the prettiest blush ever! This palette was such an amazing product to get your hands on, I remember getting the Box o' Blushes like two years ago and I still haven't hit pan on any of the blushes (although I'm dying to so I can buy them separately!).
