When this new release from Benefit landed on my doorstep, I was completely taken by surprise and extremely giddy – to say the least.
Benefit was probably one of my first higher-end brands when I started getting into make up. I was a bit of a late bloomer in that department – honestly, you should see my school photos – and the fun, tongue in cheek packaging of Benefit instantly drew me in.
So, when a new product launches, it’s pretty darn exciting! Enter, Majorette*, the booster blush to amplify your flush – a beautiful peachy-coral cream blush that hasn’t left one’s cheeks for the past week!
I adore the cute, themed packaging a lot. Benefit always brings it when it comes to packaging and advertising that’s for sure.
What I love about this blush is that it’s extremely long-wearing which is an absolute must when it comes to cream based products. I have quite oily skin and this stays just as well as my Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes which are 12 hr wear.
I apply this with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush which is my go-to brush for cream blushes and it applies the product evenly across my cheeks. The pigment is instantly vibrant so if you like to build your colour, it might be worth using your fingers and applying a little bit at a time. I personally love the bright pop of colour as it instantly boosts my complexion and adds the right amount of colour in my skin post-foundation.
The texture is great, it’s not too slippy or too runny in the slightest. I’d say it’s the perfect creamy consistency that doesn’t feel tacky.
Not only does Majorette* boost your complexion, it also boosts your favourite Benefit Box O’ Powders– I also kindly recieved Hoola* in my package. Hoola is one of my favourite bronzers and I’ve always loved using it on days when I put my beloved NARS Laguna to one side. I’ve found applying Hoola after Majorette* is a good way to lock the colours together for a longer lasting cheek.
Overall, I’m super impressed with this blush despite only using it for the past week. It’s a definite thumbs up from me!
Thanks again to Benefit for kindly gifting me this beautiful blush that I will continue to enjoy using. They also put together the #Cheek2Cheek tag which I have filmed for my YouTube channel too.
What’s your favourite cheek product from Benefit?
