Well, count me as one of those who likes it. I got it as a 100 point gift from Sephora and I'm surprised by how much I like it. It turns out to be midway between my two blush staples, Nars Orgasm and Nars Outlaw (now d/c but it's a kind of raspberry-toned blush and I wear in winter). On my fairly pale skin it looks like a reddish-pinkish flush. You do have to use it with a light hand but it's nothing that a fiber optic brush wouldn't take care of and I'm actually doing pretty well with my regular blush brush anyway. I don't particularly notice glitter and I definitely don't see fallout.
I usually am not a fan of bright pink blushes, but I think this has changed my opinion of them! This is the perfect pink blush to brighten up my face. Even though it's shimmery, I don't find that it really transfers on my face. It's definitely a watermelon pink color, but it's extremely flattering on my skin (NC35). Another plus is that it lasts all day for me, and I have quite oily skin. I would definitely repurchase!
Love this. It's in the same family as Nars Orgasm, but is much less orange and far more flattering on my NC15 skin. There is glitter in it, but I can't see it when it's applied to my cheeks. This will make it into heavy rotation in my collection---dare I say HG status.
I know that there are lots of people who love this blush - but I am not one of them. At first I really loved the color and the swatches on my hand looked beautiful. But unfortunately I didn't try it on my cheeks in the store... So when I got home and put the blush on I was very disappointed: too glittery, too shimmery, hard to apply as ist ist VERY pigmented and not finely milled and it emphasizes the pores on my cheek - I never had that issue before with any other blush. Maybe this product just isn't the right choice for women over 30, I don't know. I will definitely go back to my beloved Bobbi Brown an MAC matte blushes. They suit me a lot better than Bella Bamba.
I got a deluxe sample that should last me for a while from Sephora for 100 points and I used it for the first time today and I already really like it. It gives a really pretty pink glow, it looks very natural on my skin (Olive toned NC40). It does kinda have a sufficient amount of shimmer but that doesnt really bother me because 1) I'm young and dont have to worry about shimmer because i don't have 'aging' skin , 2) I don't find it accentuates my larger pores at all like others say and 3) The shimmer fades. I know alot of reviewers here don't like the scent of the blush but I do :o) It smells kinda like watermelon, just how Benefit describes the blush in color. It blends nicely and looks natural, not clowny on my tan skin at least But its still able to be layered. The only thing I don't like about the blush is its kinda expensive..and is the box they come in...for some reason the colors of the box i just think is ugly lol and the box is a little inconvenient for storing/traveling and would be Much better if they were in a compact but I wont take any points off the Product for the packaging. I would have given it a 5 if it weren't so overpriced because I really do Love this color on myself
I got this as a beauty insider promotion at Sephora since it was free, I couldnt lose. I really was not expecting much BUT, this is HG for me. The trick is to pat the brush, not rub it through the entire brush as it will go on pretty heavy. Its very pigmented so alittle goes a long way. It makes me look healthy, younger, glowy, etc. What more could you want from a blush? It has some shimmer in it but not like a disco glitter, rather just glowy. I'm saying goodbye to highlighter and MAC blushes and hello to this.....by the way, Im NC-20 so either blush is too light and makes me look dead or too bright and makes me look like a clown, this is just right.
This is a very bright pink blush with gold shimmer in it. I find it to be pigmented and a little goes a long way. Normally, I'm not one for shimmer in my blush, but lately I've been enjoying it because it means I cut out highlighting my cheek bones since a shimmery blush highlights and adds color. I think this would be a beautiful color on any skin tone (my skin is MAC's NC15). I'm not a fan of Benefit's boxed packaging. Yes, it's cute, but I sill prefer a flat round or square package. Also, the brush isn't half bad. If I needed to, I could definitly apply this blush using the brush it comes with. My overall thought: if you're a fan of bright pink blushes I would definitly recommend going to Ulta or Sephora and swatching this color.
This is my first Benefit powder, and while I'd definitely like to try Coralista or Sugarbomb, Bella Bamba is not for me. I got it in a set with some other products - I probably wouldn't have picked it out myself. I prefer peachy/coral or nude blushes, because my cheeks are naturally pretty red - this sort of dark pink only makes me look ruddier. Not a good look. I will probably end up giving it away or returning it Sephora; either way, not a keeper for me.
This is kinda shimmery pink.It is so pigmented it actually needs to be used with a light hand.
Love this blush. Great color, great application, great staying power, and oddly enough- great scent. My only qualm is that the applicator (which, in and of itself is great quality) sits in the blush and thus covers my fingers in blush every time I use it and I worry about wasting this expensive product! I thought of just putting the applicator aside but it fits so perfectly in there... ! Maybe that's just me but everything else about this blush is wonderful.
