Let’s face it people we are a nation of girls palette obsessed! I pinpoint the obsession starting when I got my first Urban Decay Naked palette, and the rest as they say, is history. When anyone says the p word my ears are pricked.
I swung by the Good Ship Benefit (for the 3rd time this month I might add) but nothing was going to keep me away from the launch of the Benefit Cheekathon palette. Ps. if haven’t gone down to check out the Ship it’s well worth a visit! Benefit have decked out 6 amazing rooms over 3 floors, all themed after your fav Benefit hero products (the Pore professional room is my fav). Champagne in hand and a cake pop stuff into each of my cheeks, Lauren, Benefit’s makeup artist took us through the latest and oh-so-covetable box’o’powder’s launch: The Cheekathon palette.
It seems like every beauty house is launching a face palette this year. I review the NARS NARSISSIT Cheek Studio Palette here a few weeks ago. Despite the constant releases the Benefit Cheekathon has gotten me the most excited yet, not only because the 5 powders in the palette are full size BUT the savings you make on this purchase is pretty damn impressive! Benefit have selected their 5 most iconic bronzers and blushers and built them into a palette so you can build up the perfect chiselled, blushed and highlighted face.
Inside the palette:
Coralista – a peachy blush
Hoola – a matte “suits all skintones” bronzer
Dallas – warm bronzer/sculpter
Rockateur – a cool, pale-pink shimmery highlight/blush
Dandelion – the perfect pink flush blush
A brush for application
The packaging itself is coated cardboard and quite sturdy feeling with a big mirror in the lid. Benefit’s iconic pin-up style girls are sketched across the palette lid. It’s all very cute and covetable.
A good palette isn’t cheap so if you’re thinking of investing in 1 then this is worthy investment considering each of these powders costs £23.50 each making this palette worth £117.50 but is for sale for £44.50. It’s also exclusive to House of Fraser and you can buy it here. *SALE FLASH – House of Fraser currently has 10% off this palette. Click the product image below.*
