New in Benefit: Bella Bamba Swatches & Thoughts

by xin on December 30, 2010

Let’s put our hands together for the new blush in the Benefit family: Bella Bamba!

Bella Bamba Benefit

On the first look, the box is really pretty with some 3D disco effects. Unlike the other blushes in the family, this Bella Bamba is outstanding!

bella opened

It comes with a brush, and also a built in mirror.

bella with sunlight

Under the sunlight, it appears to be pinkish and not so shimmery. This is quite the accurate color.

bella indoor

But when it is indoor, it seems orangey/peachy and has shimmers!

Bella Bamba Benefit on Brush

You can use the free brush to pick up the color, although it picks up quite a lot on the brush, but it takes even more to show up on the skin.

Bella Bamba Benefit Swatch on Hand

With finger, it is more pigmented and pinkish. But when you use brush, you can see that the color is lighter.

You can keep building this until you get the desired effects. I think it will give a really nice contour to the face.

bella with water

Even when I run water on my hand, the color stays! Not bad at all 😀 And the shimmer did not go away.

Bella Bamba has some tropical-melonish scent when you sniff the blush from the box.

Haven’t had a chance to try it on my cheeks, but will snap a photo when I do 😀

Right now, Bella Bamba is available on Benefit site retailing at USD$28.

Now, are you tempted?
