Hello pretties here is my Benefit Bella Bamba Review!
I am truly ecstatic to receive this shiny little box, which I have been eyeing for a while, as a Christmas present together with my Benefit pore-fessional that I reviewed here.
Oh well, here’s my take on Benefit Bella Bamba.
It’s a rosy blush with a nice sheen. It looks very bright and glittery on the container but believe me it goes on sheer on my NC20 skin tone and super easy to layer to the appropriate flush and brightness.
It is now my favorite go to blush this year =)
I have coralista, but Bella Bamba shows up better on me… Simply Beautiful.
“Benefit Bella Bamba is s a watermelon pink with gold sparkles”
Benefit categorized this Blush as “3D” as it gives that glowy luminous dimensional effect with enough sheen that will definitely not make your face matte flat, so that’s how I understood, and I absolutely agree “3D” !
Moreover, Benefit changed all the packaging design: it’s still a pressed board box, but the top is hinged with a magnetic closure with a mirror on the lid unlike the old one which has a detachable lid.
They also reduced the size, though still a ton of blush for the price.
It’s nicely pigmented with a flattering pink that’s not too cool or warm which means it will definitely work well with any skin tone!
The Blush blends well and applies easily while it gives that healthy flush instantly!
It can easily be used as an intense blusher- build, a heavy hand for a super flushed cheeks or just a dust for a sheer color on cheeks and blend out for a soft sweet flushed.
I also wanted to compare Bella Bamba to Coralista Nars Orgasm. So here are the swatches:
Coralista is definitely lighter, and peachy coral compared to the deeper and pinker Bella Bamba that shows up well on my NC20 skintone.
At first glance, I thought Bella Bamba is just like another Nars Orgasm variant, but Bella Bamba is distinctly pink that brightens up the face and much less golden.
- It is housed in a cute sparkly packaging with a mirror and a brush applicator
- Well Pigmented- a little goes a long way. Box of blush will definitely last really longer.
- It can go on sheer or as an intense blusher.
- It is soft, finely milled and blends well into the skin well without blotchy and patchi-ness
- Works well on any skin color.
- Long wear-ability! Though super oily skin may need to re-apply for longer wear.
- Price =(
- Super Oily and Sparkle-shy gals might not want it because it can be too shimmery when layered heavily.
I am very pleased with this Gorgeous Blush! It is one of my mistake-proof blush as it goes on sheer brightens up my face with a healthy glow instantly.
If you’re a fan of Nars Orgasm, you’ll definitely love this one too..
Honestly, I love Bella Bamba more =)
