Benefit Cheekathon Blush and Bronzer Palette

The CUTEST packaging!

Benefit, Benefit, Benefit…oh, how I love you! You really nailed it with the Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer Palette.

What do you think of first when you think of Benefit? Do you think of their boxed powders? They’re so iconic to the brand, and for good reason. Every single one of them is uh-may-zing! And now, rather than having to go out and buy them all individually, you can get five of Benefit’s best blushes and bronzers at once with the $58 Cheekathon palette.

Normally in kits like this the actual pans are usually smaller than usual, but listen to this: all of these powders are FULL SIZED!


That is so impressive to me. You don’t see palettes like that every day, and normally a single full-sized blush or bronzer would run you $29, so for the price of two of them you’re getting five!

The blushes you get with Cheekathon are Rockateur (a shimmery rose gold), Dallas (a dirty rose), Coralista (a shimmery bright coral), and Dandelion (a bright baby pink). And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Benefit release without Hoola bronzer (a perfect matte). You get such a variety of colors and finishes with this palette that you could probably get away with never using another blush in your life.

You also get a little brush with the palette, which is actually pretty nice for contouring using Hoola.

What an amazing variety!


As far as how well Cheekathon travels, the packaging is a little bulky, so I wouldn’t bring it with me on trips unless I had a weird need for all of these different blushes… It’s perfect for your makeup drawer, though. Everything you need would be right there!

I’m wearing three of the five powders on my cheeks today. I did a really light contour with Hoola and used Dallas on my cheekbones and Dandelion on the apples. The powders are all so smooth and blend-able… You won’t have any patchy cheeks with this palette!

I give this palette such an A+ that if there were a higher grade than that, I would give it! 🙂

Have you tried Benefit’s boxed powders before? What’s your favorite one?

Hi, beautiful! I’m Jen from Jen Leigh Beauty. Now, rather than just talking to myself about makeup, I write it down in a blog. Besides being madly in love with anything I can smear on my face (and sharing pics on Instagram), I’m more in love with my hunky husband, my sweet 2-year-old, and my fluffy fur baby. Thank goodness they put up with the madness, because I love chatting about my favorite things with people who understand the addiction.

    I’ve heard lots of great things about Benefit’s blushes and bronzers, but I never bought any because of the packaging. (I prefer plastic packaging.) The palette seems like a really good deal because $58 is like the cost of 2 of their blushes. This would be great as a gift!

    I’ve seen so many good reviews of this palette! I have had a little box of Dallas for YEARS which is coming to an end. I reckon that’s a valid excuse to pick this up…?

  8. I haven’t tried any Benefit boxed powders, and I usually don’t like palettes, but that one looks like it is well worth the money. All the great products in one go, with major savings. What is not to like?

    I never find myself really wanting a palette but this one “speaks to me” and I am seriously considering it.I love the blushes and have been wanting to try The Hoola for a while now and am starting to think I’m the only one that hasn’t.

  11. Michaela says:

    Hi Jen, I really how you blended the colors together. I’m usually a one color blush kind of gal, so imagine the possibilities of looks. I am shopping for a blush palette, and I’ve been eyeing the tarte one reviewed by Anna Oh. This is going to be hard for me to decide! Although I can see how maybe getting this Benefit one is a better deal because it includes bronzers as well, but not travel-friendly like the Tarte one.
