Benefit’s latest Blush Box is Hervana, a rosy, berry, violet, peach toned box. It’s about time Benefit brought out something with these lovely purple type tones…
My favourite blush boxes from Benefit are Hoola (perfect matte bronzer) then I quite like Coralista. But I haven’t found one that I’ve found an essential blush shade.
Do you like the design of the box:
Benefit Hervana has four shades which can be swirled into one. It has a really lovely scent! It also comes with a chunky brush on top and like the newer boxes, the lid is attached. The colours….
Here are the 4 shades, a cream highlighter, peach, berry, rose. To me it has only a little shimmer, which is very flattering to wear on the cheek.
I guess you could wear the shades individually if you wanted to although I don’t have the energy to pick out the shades individually to apply on my cheek. On my olive skintone the colours seem to disappear but I can say that swirled together it leaves me with a really beautiful natural glow:
I really have been using this every day since I got it, because it’s just so easy to use! It’s really flattering and warm without looking like a rash (I get red easily and sometimes berry shades just make me look like I have been sweating. This one looks pretty).
The only thing I find slightly cumbersome is the lid. Some people didn’t like the previous removable lid, I actually prefer it to this one – just for aesthetic reasons. It’s also cardboard and quite a big box which mean I wouldn’t carry it around with me in my make up bag unless I happened to depot it eventually.
This costs £23.50 which isn’t cheap but I have yet to finish a box blush, they last forever so it kind of makes it good value! You can
