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.
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?
