Benefit Boxed Powders

I love the Benefit Boxed Powders, so I thought I'd show you which ones are my favorites!

What it is:
A warm coral-pink powder that warms up your complexion.

What it does:
Take a tropical pleasure trip with CORALista. Sweep this warm coral pink powder onto cheeks anytime, anywhere. Move your brush to the beat & turn up the heat... bikini optional!

What it is:
A "sugar rush flush" facial powder.

What it does:
Gimme some sugar—with sugarbomb! These four unique shades of rose, shimmering pink, soft plum, and peach blend together perfectly for a delicious "sugar rush flush."

Bella Bamba
What it is:
A watermelon-pink blush laced with shimmering gold undertones.

What it does:
This boxed blush, with a mirror tucked inside a magnetic closure flip-top lid, amplifies cheekbones and creates the illusion of sculpted features for a gorgeous 3D effect. Your face will look instantly brighter with just a quick swipe of this ultra-flattering color on the cheeks.

Bella Bamba is my newest addition. As you can see, they've changed up the packaging (lid is flips up inside of coming off completely and there's a mirror) and I'm loving that. I will say, the brushes are more for look, you can definitely find something better to apply with, but they're cute and in a pinch they would work, Benefit products have the cutest packaging, in my opinion. Always fun to look at in my vanity! 
Do you use any of the Benefit Boxed Powders? What's your favorite?

When you see when girls complain to have everything around their bag..
At least if you have one of those.. it will be inside the box

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

ya the brushes really stink! lol i have the dandelian, bronzer one (forget name), a diff coral one that isnt here... i dont use them as often anymore. The bronzer was too dark for my pale skin so i gave to my roomie lol

Closet Fashionista said...

Oooh how fun! I love that packaging :D :D
I think its a good thing that I don't really wear makeup...then I'd have something else to spend all my money on ;)

ryan said...

I'm a sugarbomb fan all the way : ) and I like a perfect 10 too

Runway Rundown said...

I have been looking for a new color! I've still been using my bronzer from summer. Unfortunately my skin has greatly paled since then. Thanks for the ideas!

Check out Runway Rundown!!

How I adore Benefit-you're right, their packaging is always so darling! Bella Bamba looks right up my alley!

Valerie said...

I love Benefit, but I'm so behind on these boxes. I used to LOVE Hula, but I haven't bought any others. I'll have to check these out.


Ashleigh said...

Funny timing, I just posted about Benefit this morning and am wearing Sugarbomb today :) I got it for Christmas and can't wait to see what it looks like on a tan! I agree about the brushes, I use a different one daily basis. They do have the cuuuutest packaging!

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

i love the dandelion powder, but i am loving the description of that last one...

Ashleigh said...

P.S. Hoola has been great for helping me fake a tan in the meantime!

Tiffany - I am Style-ish said...

totally agree, Benefit has the cutest packaging. I often buy their stuff just because it's so cute! I love the Dandelion. I hadn't seen the Bella Bamba yet, I'm going to have to try it out.

I seriously need to get over to your place for a makeup lesson. I'm pale as ever and am hoping these little babies can give me a little color!!

i would have to say Coralista is my absolute favorite. especially because the scent is divine :-) i also like the Hoola bronzer, but too much can look a little muddy.
