Benefit Majorette Blusher

I’ve been waiting for the right time to write my post about the new blusher from Benefit. As with all new Benefit releases there is a huge hype that surrounds the product. What gets me the most is after the initial release and the positive comments, there comes a barrage of negativity and I try and distance myself so I can form my own opinions. On this occasion, the hype is right and the new Benefit Majorette Blusher* has become a daily essential in my life as well as my mums. Lets see why this cream blush is ticking all the boxes.

Benefit Majorette Blusher

First of all, I must mention how much I usually shy away from cream blushers. I can’t work them, I can’t seem to get them right and I always end up looking like a clown. When I met up with Lisa Potter-Dixon at the Bling Brow event and had a mini make up touch up, she added just the right amount of Majorette to have me sold. Benefit Majorette Blusher is a gorgeous pinky peach cream to powder blush that adds just the right amount of pop to your cheeks. The colour is so natural and I think it would suit all skin tones as it can be applied sheerly over fair skins and built up over darker skin tones.

I love the marketing idea behind Majorette. It can be worn alone, however it is also a shade that gives extra oomph to your Benefit Box O’Powder. I have a few of the powders and my favourite has to be Rockateur. As Rockateur is such a sheer rose gold powder, it works beautifully with Majorette. I must also mention the scent as it is definitely a winner. It smells like Fruit Salad sweets, and is totally good enough to eat.

Packaging wise, it is one of the better packaging ideas for a blush. As much as I love my Box O’Powders, they can get tatty in my make up bag so the plastic packaging is great for my travels. With a handy mirror inside as well as a plastic domed protector, my Majorette is safe and sound. Although the gorgeous pattern imprinted in the blush has now disappeared, I am still totally enamoured with Majorette.

Now that I have been getting used to working with a cream blush, it has enabled me to use my other cream blushes with ease and I haven’t had any clown cheeks. Have you tried Benefit Majorette Blusher? What do you think?

Benefit Majorette Blusher is £23.50 and is available now.

    • It is one of the cutest packages I’ve seen!xx

  • The packaging is so cute! I love the colour, although it is very summery. I’ve never used a cream to powder product, it looks lovely in the swatch though.

    I love, love, love that packaging!!! I now use a great brush for cream blushes, so I no longer fear them! Just read your comment on my last post. I think we have similar coloring, but I haven’t gotten nearly as tan as I usually do this past summer, so am envious of your bronzed goddess self! haha! xo

    • My bronzed goddess look has all but disappeared and now I am pale and boring. Bring on the Fake Tan!!xx

    I saw it at Sephora and this is really not a shade I am drawn to, be it cheeks or lips.
    But now that you explained how it also works layered with other blushes, I would be happy to have someone at the Benefit counter to show me.

    That personalized Benefit mug though, I’ll have that to start off hahahaha!!! *_* 😀

    • Every girl needs a personalised mug, especially if you have a name like mine haha!!xx

  • This is one of benefits blushes that’s been on my list for a while but haven’t got round to get it, it seemed everyone was raving about it, and it got on my nerves at that time, too much hype, but glad you brought it back to my attention because I really do want it

    Thanks Anoushka xx
