Benefit GALifornia mini blush, review

Hello my lovely readers, today I’m back with a review on a blush I really love to use in the summer time. It is Benefit GALifornia, the travel size version (2.5 gr/0.08 oz). I bought it from the travel section of Sephora, I really love it, you can try new products before buying the full size (they have a set of mini powder and cream highlighters from Becca) and the minis are very useful in saving space in the luggage when travelling.

Benefit GALifornia (5 gr/0.17 oz full size) is described as a golden pink blush, capturing the warm glow of California in a blush. It is a blend of a bright and fun pink with a shimmering gold shade, perfect for the colorful and carefree summer days. The artwork from the packaging is inspired by the vintage California surfer girls and it is a must for every make-up lover! The blush includes a blush brush and a mirror for an easy application. Its formula includes notes of pink grapefruit and vanilla for a dreamy and fun experience.



I usually prefer pinks, peach with golden highlights in the summer time so this blush is right up my alley. Although small it is pretty pigmented so use it with a light hand. I prefer to start light and build the intensity to my liking. It is easy to apply and blends very well onto the skin.

For the travel size version you have to use a smaller brush in order to pick up the product from the box. I also like to use it on my lids and it works very well onto a good base. It lasts all day both on the lids and on the cheeks.




You can find Benefit products in Sephora in stores and online (the travel size around 70 ron/15 dollars; full size 170 ron/29 dollars).

All in all, the Benefit GALifornia  is definitely my favourite blush from Benefit. It is perfect in the summer time, it’s pigmented, fun and it complements all skin tones. It is easy to carry into the bag and due to its pigmentation it will last you for a long time. I am glad I bought the travel size, it is large enough to use for quite a while therefore you will know for sure if you want to buy the full size. I do! From me it gets a -A (due to the not so very affordable price) but I think it is worth it! Its shade is too beautiful to be missed! Tell me Have you tried the Benefit GALifornia ? What are your impressions ? Until next time,    Love, M
