One of my go-to blushes and all time favorites now is the new-ish Bella Bamba by Benefit. This just might be the best peach/pink color for fair folks, with just the right amount of shimmer and color, but nothing that makes you look as if you fell asleep on top of Mariah Carey’s desk. 😉
Typical of the Benefit blushes, Bella Bamba comes in a little square box with mirror inside and application brush. The difference with this one from those of the past is the lid stays on and it just tilts back, whereas the others came off completely. I like this a little better, it seems more handy.
Normally the brush inside comes in a plastic “dish” that it sits atop the blush itself, protecting it, but for some reason mine was missing.
The brush is a bit better than the ones in previous releases. It’s more rounded and feels softer, which is great. It’s actually useful!
Bella Bamba is an extremely flattering combination of peach and pink with a bit of shimmer, but not too much. I cannot tell you HOW flattering this is, you must try for yourself. It really is the color I have been reaching for the most since I bought it.
Bella Bamba on the left, CORALista on the right
Previous to Bella Bamba, I wore CORALista a ton. I thought maybe they were very close in color, but as you can see from the comparison above, CORALista is lighter, warmer and has more of a peach than a rosy color. Also CORALista doesn’t have the shimmer that Bella Bamba does.
Both are in my top 10 favorite blushes ever!
It’s a must-have if these type of colors look good on your skin tone. The great thing is they are so pigmented you don’t need a lot, and they last a very long time.
Availability: Sephora and wherever Benefit is sold
