Benefit‘s latest boxed blush ($29), GALifornia, is a beauty! The outside packaging alone is cute but then you open it up and reveal a sunny, bright design, perfect for summer.
GALifornia blush is a medium pink color, almost coral, with a hint of gold. The gold on top of the sun design is an overspray so it does dust off with your first use.
This is not a matte blush, nor is it shimmery. It has a nice satin finish that just makes your cheeks look fresh and healthy.
There is zero sparkles in it, after you dust off the gold on top. It has a smooth, silky texture so it’s a breeze to blend out.
GALifornia packs a pretty good punch of pigmentation so go easy with it at first. One light tap into the blush is all I need for each cheek.
