Benefit: Hervana blush

So last week I ordered the new Benefit Hervana blusher. I’d seen loads of people talking about it and I was definitely interested in trying it. Then I saw Benefit tweet a code for free shipping and 2 free samples and I fell for it. This is exactly why I love Marketing, because I myself am a sucker for it. Despite the fact I live 2 minutes from a Benefit counter where I can try the blusher and but it free from shipping, I still thought ‘wow i’ve got to order it now!’. 
I picked the ‘Hoola’ bronzer and the ‘Stay Don’t Stray’ eye primer as my two free samples and was genuinely excited to try them. I was really impressed with the gorgeous packaging that the products came in but was VERY disappointed with the samples. When I went to try the bronzer there was literally no product there. It looked brown, but no matter how hard I rubbed my finger on it, or a brush, nothing would come off. Really pissed me off. 
Anyway.. onto the blusher! 

The blusher is a mix of 4 colours; a champagne, a beige, a pink and a purple. Swished all together and it gives a cool flushed look. It is supposed to make you look angelic (the name meaning Her Nervana). At first I was worried it looked too cool for me and slightly too purple, but I actually quite like it and it makes a nice change from my usual pinks. It costs £23.50 and I know from my other benefit blushers that they last for ages… I’ve had one of mine for years (gross).

For this blusher, like the Bella Bamba, they have used to the new packaging with the lid magnetically attached. Its opens up and has a mirror inside which is really nice. Sorry to be controversial, but I MUCH prefer the old packaging. If you look at the photo below you will see the old packaging on my Coralista blusher. As you can see I always use the lid to swirl my brush around in before applying the blusher. This is not only a habit, but it really helps achieve a natural look without having to brush it all over the back of your hand. Bring back the old packaging I say!

What do you think of Hervana? Have you tried it yet?
