Seriously, how many ‘Hervana’ jokes have been made now? All of them. Moving swiftly on this is the latest (by which I mean it came out months ago and I’m just slow) boxed powder from Benefit. The packaging is adorable and follows the heavenly theme conjured up by the name. Yes I still worry that the cardboard packaging will get beaten up but in the mean time it does look good!
Like most of the boxed powders this smells delicious. I’m not sure what of, just sweet and lovely. In the pan you get sections of four colours, a pale shell pink, peachy orange, rosy pink and pink berry shade. All have fine shimmer evident on the pan but I don’t notice the shimmer translating to my face at all.
The sections are too small really to be used individually so you just have to swirl your brush through all of them. You end up with a peachy pink shade which is very flattering. It’s not too cool toned, not too warm. Just right on my neutral skin. I do find that this is more pigmented than most of the boxed powders I’ve tried so far and it has better staying power too. It looks pretty much as good at the end of the work day as it does at the start which is impressive, I seem to be noticing a lot of blushes fading on me at the moment. Random.
I’ve been reaching for this a lot of late and really enjoying it. As usual this costs £23.50 except (again as usual) I paid for it with my Boots points :-D
