Her Nirvana





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?

    1. Me too, I don't find it to be over the top or too fake looking

  4. I really like it, but personally don't use pink blushers as my cheeks are very pink/red nationally. So i go for browns one.

    1. My skin is on the paler side so having a blush that isn't as harsh and more subtle is a nice change :) x
