Benefit Hervana | Review

Benefit Hervana has been out for quite a while now, and I'm quite surprised I'd never done a review of this beauty before! Benefit, being one of my favourite high-end makeup brands, has never disappointed me when it comes to their blushers/bronzers.
When this was first released I knew I just had to have it, it contains four different shades (from Lightest to Darkest) Lucky Shell, Divine Peach, Heavenly Rose and Berry Delight. You can't actually use the shades separately (well, I guess you could, with difficulty), but when mixed together with a big fluffy brush, they create a perfect natural pink/peach shade with a slight shimmer too.

                                                          a 'good karma' face powder!

Benefit describe this as an 'orchid blossom' blush, which I do agree with. It's perfect for people with paler skin as it's not too bright. Whereas on darker skin it would probably work more like a highlighter. Hervana is pretty matte but does have subtle shimmer running through it, which is perfect if your skin needs brightening up a bit! Like all other Benefit blushes, it's housed in a small cardboard box with a good sized mirror (perfect for on the go) and an angled brush. Personally I don't use the brush that comes with it, I use one of my other fluffy brushes but it's incredibly easy to apply and lasts a good 5 hours before fading. So if I'm going for a natural makeup look I reach for this. It's quite pricey at £23.50 a pop but I don't regret picking this up as it applies effortlessly and is easily built up if you want more colour.

Have you tried any of the Benefit box blushers?
