Benefit Complimenting Blushes and Glosses: Bella Bamba
Benefit Blushes have been a staple of mine for quite some time. They’re super soft, have great payoff and just look pretty :) They recently came out with some complimentary glosses, so here is my look at Bella Bamba blush and gloss!
Bella Bamba blush is described as a “watermelon pink” and has a good amount of shimmer and sheen. Lighter skinned people will probably need to use a light hand with this one, as it can come off quite pigmented due to its creamy texture. Gorgeous, gorgeous shade!
Bella Bamba Gloss is that same watermelon shade, but with less shimmer than the blush. it has a very jelly-like look, and is more pink when applied than it looks in the tube.

Bella Bamba Lipgloss is very slick and non-sticky, as well as being super sheer. If you like MAC Lip Gelees, these are right up your alley. You get a sheer hint of color and a nice “wet” look without dealing with the stickiness and goopy quality other lip glosses can have. I feel like these are a great summer gloss, as I really like to keep everything light in the summer, and I hate the feeling of thick lipgloss.. makes me feel like my face is melting off or something haha :)
Gloss available in July for $16 each from Benefit
Blush available now for $28 each from Benefit
