Hi Guys if you are like me you are always on the hunt for the next best product. I love trying new makeup and I especially love trying blushes. I am actually pretty fussy when it comes to blush and normally reach between the same few from my collection. I am definitely a blush lover; my makeup is never complete without blush.
I have to admit that I have never really been drawn to the Benefit blushes but when I seen the press release for GALifonia I knew I had to have it. Between the packaging and the colour it was love at first sight!
I ordered mine from Brown Thomas and it cost €34. The blush is a beautiful peach pink colour with a gold coating. The gold coating comes off after your first use and leaves behind a beautiful colour. The blush itself is pretty pigmented but blends really nicely. For me personally this blush works better with a big fluffy blush rather than a smaller brush. The finish of the blush is more of a sheen finish it isn’t matte but it isn’t shiny either, it leaves your skin looking really nice and healthy looking. This colour will work on so many skin tones, I’ve worn it with and without tan, I have loved it with every makeup look I’ve worn it.
The packaging is just adorable; I am such a magpie I can’t help but buy products in pretty packaging. I am a dream customer! The packaging seems really sturdy it should withhold your holiday makeup bag. It also has a small mirror in the lid which isn’t really necessary. The blush also comes with a cute little brush which I haven’t tried but would be handy for when you are out and about.
Am I selling it to you yet? Well I do have one pretty big negative about the product and that is the scent, it is so strong and I have to admit I hate it. It is such an overpowering scent for a product. The scent is pink grapefruit and vanilla. I personally love the scent of vanilla but I can’t smell any vanilla. But I love the colour and the finish so much I can get over the smell, I just have to hold the box away from me when dipping my brush in!
So my conclusion is this is absolutely the perfect summer blush. Do you have a perfect summer blush you pull out when the weather starts to heat up? Let me know yours I am always on the hunt for the perfect blush!
