I’m Friends with Benefit Hervana — My Partner in This Face of the Day

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD)

What’s shakin’, turkey bacon? What have you been up to today? I did some housework, went for a quick run, took care of a few other little errands, and watched a couple movies on TV (but no Muppets yet). And, of course, I played around with makeup, per usual.


I call this here look my “I plan to sit on the couch and watch Clueless on TV” Face of the Day, and that’s exactly what I used it for. πŸ™‚

It’s a big time Benefit look. Just about everything I used is from the line, including the new Benefit Hervana blush, which I really like.

It’s just an easy look with pink cheeks, lips and eyes and a touch of taupe along the lash lines. Purrrfect for watching movies on the couch with your cat.

Oh, Tabs also helped me with this. He suggested the taupe. πŸ™‚

Hope you’re having a nice weekend so far.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Hervana does look lovely on you; however, I’m not a big fan of Benefit’s square box cardboard packaging. =/

    I love the design of it! and it looks nice on you~

    I’ve never bought a full size Benefit blush, they’ve been on my list to try for ages. maybe they’ll come out with a min set like they did with their stains and High Beam, so people like me can afford try them too ;3

    I set a reminder for Benefit’s sneak preview sale of Hervana! I can’t wait to buy it!! Did you apply it to the apples of your cheeks or did you also extend higher?

  6. Nicole says:

    Never mind – just saw the parenthesis πŸ™‚

  10. Hmm. Colour me intrigued! I was wondering how well Hervana would translate on medium/dark skintones, but it delivers such a lovely flush to your complexion – unexpected, in the best way possible πŸ˜‰

    I may just finally pull the trigger on a Benefit blush with this one. I’m pale & cool-toned, and this looks like it would complement me. It seems like many of their other shades are too warm.

    I’ll be in Paris next week and in my beauty-shopping-spree plans there’s a stop at Sephora so I’ll get the chance to look at Hervana closely. It looks like something I could wear.

  15. Michele DiCola says:

    Not that interested in Nervana ; looks like a repeat of something else!

  16. Paris B says:

    Ah definitely have Hervana on my list just because I have most of the others already LOL! πŸ™‚ Looking lovely as usual Karen!

    Just beautiful! One of my favorite looks on you!

  18. Nina says:

    Tabs and Taupe — best combo ever!

    the blush/powder seems a bit cool for me …. but with a nice warm cream base, it will def work!

  19. Sophie says:

    Def agree w/ Nina; Tabs has great taste. My cats tend to lean towards more pink colors, which I do not care for. Got to get them lessons with Tabs!
