New!! Benefit Cosmetics GALifornia Blush Review

Screen Shot 2017-05-20 at 4.58.16 PM.png

What It Is:
A sunny, golden pink blush.

What It Does:
Benefit’s GALifornia golden pink blush blends bright pink with shimmering gold, for a sunkissed glow that complements all skin tones. The embellished gold overspray lifts away with each use, and the formula is infused with a subtle shimmer throughout that gives your cheeks a soft sheen. The signature Galifornia Dreamin’ scent features notes of pink grapefruit and vanilla. It comes complete with a custom, rounded blush brush and a mirror for soft, diffused application.

Beauty Tip:
For a deeper pop of pink, layer GALifornia on top of posietint poppy-pink tinted cheek and lip stain.

My Review:

First off, is this not the cutest packaging you have ever seen? I am so in love with this cuteness!! I love all of benefit cosmetics boxed powders, they are just the cutest! I am going to say something negative first though about the cute, and adorable packaging…… well, it isn’t durable at all, mine that I bought came with a partial tear in the lid, and that was really disappointing, the paper on this for the packaging doesn’t seem as thick, or as durable as the others in the past unfortunately. This blush retails for $29, which I think is a bit pricy for what it is, yes the pan size is large, but not for the actual amount you are paying in my opinion, the packaging is literally paper covered cardboard, and seems to be thrown together, not the usual quality that these typically are. Maybe I just got a poorly made one, but it was something I wanted to mention. The design of the gal on the front is super cute though, I love her glasses! Anyways, let’s talk about the actual product, the blush itself, it’s the cutest color, and shade of pink peach, the gold tones it down, while adding a gentle, and subtle glow, and shimmer. I always tend to be attracted to these types of blush shades, I like my blush to have a little bit of shimmer, without being over glittery, or to much of a shine, because let’s be real, this is a blush, not a highlighter. It really provides a beautiful coral, peach color to the cheeks. It truly is beautiful, and lasts all day without budging! I think this is a great addition to the benefit cosmetics boxed powder lineup, and a must have for a makeup collection! P.S. the brush it comes with is a cute wood handle small brush, that is good quality, but very difficult to hold, and use because of it’s size, but it is useable, and cute!

Hello, hello lovies. Good day to all of you, okay, it’s night time when I am writing this post, but yes, it will be morning when this is posted 🙂 I hope your day is going wonderful so far, hopefully my day will be awesome as well. I mentioned in my last post yesterday that I just got back from a trip to Las Vegas, and had a great time, sunshine, pooltime, great food, and amazing shopping deals, are always so fun, right? My gosh, this was a great time this time, I really needed some sunshine, and pooltime to relax, but I got so damn sunburnt that I had to take a little break from the pools, and go shopping, my second favorite thing to do in Las Vegas besides the pool! Shopping is always so different in Las Vegas, because you just never know! I decided to try the North (in downtown Las Vegas) outlet mall this time, next time when I go in June, I want to go again to the North, but also want to see what is at the South, I also didn’t have time to do any other shopping this time, so gotta make more time for that next time as well! I am all about finding good deals!! I found some amazing deals on makeup this time, yeah!!! I couldn’t believe it, I was literally SO freaking excited when I saw there was a bare minerals store in the outlet, and a cosmetics company store as well, yeah!! I walked in to both of these stores, and almost cried lol, oh joys of a makeup lover lol! So anyways check out everything I got!! I will post the prices I paid as well just so you all know, what kind of amazing shopping deals you can get at these types of outlet stores in Las Vegas, so totally worth the trip, p.s. I took the bus from Bellagio, where I stayed to get there, it was definitely the way to save money, and travel while in Las Vegas, highly recommend it! Please let me know your favorite thing from my haul, I am curious to know, my favorite thing was both of the Tom Ford items, that bronzer/highlighter duo is LIFE, I saw it, and freaked out, so so beautiful my gosh yes!! These are my first 2 Tom Ford items in my collection, fyi, they are full of luxury, and elegance that’s for sure, simply stunning, and so is the price tag, lol, even at outlet prices!! I splurged, it’s always good to treat yourself every once in a while, why is makeup so beautiful, and pretty? LOL! Enjoy my haul! You can live through me, and my bad shopping habits! 🙂 Oh, and I do want to mention that Bare Minerals offers a free birthday gift (the full size eyeshadow) for your birthday, mine was April 14th, and I am a member because I am a Bare Minerals junkie, lol, so I got that for free! Also, the store was having an additional percent off because it was the weekend, so I really got great deals, I don’t know if they do this on non weekend’s though, so you may just get lucky like I did! The cosmetics company store was doing an additional 1/2 off everything in the store except Tom Ford, but that’s okay, they were still great prices!
