Benefit Majorette Blush* £23.50
Whenever a new Benefit product launches you can feel the excitement in the blogging world and the buzz for this product was pretty huge! Benefit's newest addition to their make up range is Majorette, a 'Booster Blush' with a cream to powder finish. This is Benefit's first cream blush and actually the first of their blushes I've tried. I'm not great with blush and have only this year started to wear it daily since trying out cream textures and finding they work much better for my dry skin and tend to look more natural.
The packaging for Majorette is a super cute marching band theme shaped like a tambourine. It's lightweight, compact and has a good sized mirror inside. I love it's magnetic closure as it makes that satisfying sound when it closes! The blush itself is dome shaped and has a pretty sun pattern printed onto it. Before I even noticed Majorette's shade I was drawn to it's gorgeous citrus scent, it doesn't seem to transfer to skin but I'd probably avoid if you're not a fan of scented products.
Majorette is a bold orange shade in the pan but is a softer peachy coral shade when applied that I think would suit all skin tones. On my super pale skin it adds a subtle warm colour that could be built up to be more intense in shade but I like my blush to be subtle. It applies really smooth with the cream texture but dries to a powder finish meaning it lasts longer. It's a really light formula that's so easy to apply and work with. It melts into the skin when applied with fingers but looks lovely if you use a stippling brush too.
Benefit created Majorette as a 'Booster Blush' that can be worn under another blush to 'boost' the colour and longevity. I prefer to wear Majorette on it's own for a natural blush but if you do prefer a bolder colour this might be great for you! I have tried using this as a Booster Blush and it definitely works to deepen the effect of the second blush and make sure it lasts all day. When I wear Majorette on it's own it lasts around 8 hours.
As a natural peachy shade or used to boost other blushes, I'm a big fan of Majorette. It's pricey but worth it for the cute packaging, quality and cheer it brings!
