Summer Dreamin’ with Benefit Galifornia / new blush review & swatches

I’m so exited to share with you Benefit’s gorgeous new blush GALifornia* that has just launched beginning of this month. The packaging is super cute, it immediately caught my attention the moment I saw it on social media and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

It’s very colourful and pretty, the artwork has been inspired by vintage California surfer girls, with a real 70’s hippy vibe to it, I love it! 🙂

The actual blush has a beautiful shimmery golden sun design on it. The golden over spray disappears after the first use to reveal a lovely peachy/pink shade, there is also hints of coral in it, it’s so pretty and very flattering on the skin.

It looks so nice with a tan but also on a more fair complexion. It gives a lovely healthy glow and I’m sure it would suit many different skin tones. GALifornia has a lovely sweet scent with notes of pink grapefruit & vanilla, it smells tropical and absolutely delicious!

I also found that this blush looks lovely applied as an eyeshadow, it’s such a flattering shade of peachy coral and you can create a beautiful sunset inspired eye look.

Benefit GALifornia retails for £24.50 and is available here


Thanks so much for reading,

Victoria xo

    Oh my gosh Vicki it looks stunning! Thank you for doing a nice swatch of it too, sometimes I think people forget to do it for blushers so it can be hard for me to judge if it’ll suit me. But this looks gorgeous! xx
