Bella Bamba!

Bella Bamba is the latest offering by Benefit in their 'face powder' section which they do not like to call as blushers for some reason. 

This particular one is supposed to have a 3D element to it and unlike other face powders out there, this can be used to contour and highlight the face as well.

First of all, isn't the packaging uber funky? Not everybody's cup of tea of course but I pretty much like it. This time the box comes with an inbuilt mirror as well which is quite handy. 



The colour has been compared to NARS Orgasm frequently, however in my opinion this is no where as weak in pigmentation as Orgasm. In fact this is how NARS Orgasm should have been like to be honest.




It's a light yet bright watermelon pink with the tiniest amount of peach shot through it. It has very finely milled golden shimmer particles to reflect light and give that dewy glow.

I like the fact that it's more pinky-peach than golden as I despise golden cheeks! Who like them anyway?

Bella Bamba lives up true to its expectations and works amazingly well as defining and highlighting the face. No wonders they call it a face powder then eh? It really does not look as if you're wearing a pink powder all over your face to be honest. It just creates some extra dimension.


Here's me wearing it all over the cheeks. It's the prettiest, perkiest colour if you're ever feeling blue. Plus I received so many compliments regarding my skin when I wore this, which always helps doesn't it?


Overall, I am addicted and all my other '2D' powder blushes seem so flat on the face after using this!

Available from Feelunique.com for £23.50 including delivery which is a modest price, as this is something that I am likely to hit pan on and I know will last for ages.
