In January this year, Benefit Cosmetics launched their new boxed blush "Hervana". I managed to pick this up in Debenhams not long after it came out, with my beauty points I managed to get it for £13 so I was pretty happy with that. The word Hervana is a cross between Her & Nirvana. The four shades that make up Hervana are lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose and berry delight. Benefit describes this as "orchid blossom finish to cheeks with a low amount of pearl" The first thing I noticed about this blush was the smell, it has a very sweet kind of berry-like smell to it which I love! Although the smell doesn't really bare any purpose to the product itself it's little things like this which sets the Benefit Brand apart from others. When applied I noticed that this blush was quite a light subtle soft pink colour that is easily buildable. Included is an angled brush too which I don't use but is nice to have if you are out. I prefer to use my travel size MAC 129 brush as I find this is small enough to get into the corners but also big enough to not pick up any concentrated colour. These shades can be used individually if you have a brush small enough and find a way to apply them although I haven't tried this. I'd also recently found out that this blush is a multipurpose blush which can be used on both lips and eyes. Although I wouldn't use this product on my lips it is nice to know that you can use it anywhere on the face. What do you think of Benefit's new boxed blush?
