Two, four, six, eight, what do we appreciate!?
Easy blush! Easy blush! Yaaaaay, Benefit! [INSERT HIGH KICKS HERE]
OK…I was never a cheerleader (more of a band geek), but I’m cheering for Benefit’s new Majorette Booster Blush. It’s fun and easy to use, has a cream-to-powder formula, feels super silky, and the packaging is shaped like a cute little drum.
The silky formula almost feels kind of slippery on my fingertips, and it’s easy to zhuzh out the edges when I pat it on bare cheeks or on top of foundation, which I appreciate when I’m movin’ and shakin’.
I like that it doesn’t settle into my pores and that it lasts 5-6 hours on my combo oily/dry skin before I feel like I need a touchup.
Oh, and it does have a faint fragrance.
Really faint, though. I have to get my nose up in the pan to detect it, but I think it smells like peach gummy candies.
Yes, boom. Those are awesome. 🙂
The look is matte and natural, which should be a great option for gals and guys heading back to the classroom.
Which reminds me, I wish I’d had a better appreciation for minimal makeup when I was in my tweens, teens and early 20s. When you’re that age, it’s easy to get away with very little makeup (that flush of youth and all). This is a great blush to accentuate a youthful glow without going full-on makeup crazy.
But at any age, I’d give three cheers to Majorette. It’s a cheerful, easy-to-use, undaunting blush (all ya need are fingers!), and I love that it reminds me that makeup doesn’t have to be so serious.
AVAILABILITY: Permanent collection, and coming this September to Benefit counters, stores and also online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+/A- (I wish it lasted a tad longer so I could go even more time between touchups… Mucho lazy, yo!)
