Benefit Hervana Face Powder - Review & Swatch

Hi Everyone!
I am such a sucker for cute packaging and new beauty products so I was really drawn into Benefit's new beauty powder, Hervana! This product is supposedly 'heavenly' hence the packaging design! The powder comes in Benefit's usual box design that snaps shut, there is a mirror on the inside of the lid which is really handy.

The blush itself is made up of 4 different shades that Benefit describe as 'lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose and berry delight' which are designed to be swirled together to create an 'orchard blossom blush'. The 4 colours are really pretty and complement each other well. They are too small to use alone so have to be used together. The result is a really flattering, classic pink shade which would be great on most skin tones. The colour pay-off is pretty good but not too overly pigmented which makes application easier.

I have never really liked the brushes that come with Benefit's powder but I have to say that they are definitely getting better, as you can see from the picture below the brush is angled which makes application much easier. It's also a lot softer than I remember their previous brushes being!

Overall I really like this product, the packaging and design in general is really nice and the product is great quality, in my opinion this is a great 'every day' blush! It reminds me a little of MAC's Well Dressed Blush which is one of my favourites but it's slightly rosier than that. The blush is expensive but great as a gift or treat for yourself!

You can purchase Hervana from Benefit for £23.50
