Benefit Cheekathon

Benefit Cheekathon

As requested by all you lovely lot, I’m talking about Benefit‘s newest addition to their collection: Cheekathon. A box filled with cheeky powders to keep you looking glam!

Benefit CheekathonBenefit have seriously been uping their game lately (not like they need to) and their newest releases have had us all talking and wishlistin’. So when this beautifully packaged came on sale, I just had to pick one up.

Benefit Cheekathon is THE bronze and blush palette featuring all their iconic shades in full size versions. Benefit does some pretty cute gift sets which give us the chance to try their deluxe samples without paying for the full version. The good thing about Cheekathon is we are actually saving a fortune buying this instead of all them separately. Priced at £44.50, the box is worth over £100 so it really is an investment.

So if your like me and you’ve never tried all 5 powders before, then this really is something you need in your makeup collection. With the huge mirror and powder brush, it’s definitely going to be coming away with me this year. The perfect travel essential instead of taking separate products.

This showstopper palette compliments all skintones and whether you want to wear a powder on its own or partner a blush and bronze duo, Benefit even includes a Tips and Tricks guide to ‘Brighten & Bronze’ or ‘Pop on Pretty’.

I’ve only ever tried CORALista (full size), Dandelion (deluxe mini) and Hoola (deluxe mini) so I’m so happy to finally have all these in my collection for years to come. I’m not really sure why Hervana isn’t in this set though as that’s one of my fave blushers from Benefit – it’s the prettiest powder to look at too. Oh and Sugarbomb but maybe it’s because their more face powders.. Still would have been nice to have the FULL set of powders.

Just when you thought I couldn’t of got a better deal, I bought this when House of Fraser were doing £10 off beauty. If you spent over £50 you got £10 off so really this box set only cost me £34.50. Just one full size powder would cost you £23.50, amazing right?!

Dandelion – A bright ballerina pink that’s the perfect pop to the cheeks

Hoola – Most girls favourite bronzer with a beautiful matte finish for a natural looking ‘tan’

Dallas – A sheer sunkissed powder that’s a blush and bronze in one

CORALista – A warm coral blush that’s also has a gleam that makes a subtle highlighter

Rockateur – A rose gold blush with speckles of shimmer, a perfect pinky highlight

So there you have it, Benefits cheeky powders all in one delicately boxed package. It’s such a good feeling knowing you’ve saved a lot of money on products you know you’ll love for a long time.

I’ve also just recently purchased their Hoola Zero Tanlines Body Bronzer – so make sure you keep a look out for a review of that soon.

What do you think of Cheekathon? Have you purchased this?

    Omg it’s so pretty…I really love the packaging, your photos are stunning too, it all looks so colourful! You got such a good deal for this..I really want it, I’m pretty envious. I’ve recently bought some sample sized products from Benefit as I could try them out before buying the full sized products, so the only one I’ve tried out is Hoola, and I have to say I LOVE it, all these other powders look so pretty, I’m so tempted to buy this!!!
