Happy Tuesday, y’all.
If you’re actually on my website, you’ll notice that my blog looks a little different. I did some renovations today. If you’re not on my actual website, go check it out, here. You can see what I’ve changed.
A couple weeks ago I ordered some stuff from the Benefit Cosmetics webpage. I was looking around because I had wanted to get the Hoola bronzer anyways, and I noticed they had a limited edition pallet of (most) of all of their blushes/bronzers. Called the Cheek Parade, this pallet includes five blushes and bronzers – Hoola Matte Bronzer, Hoola Lite Matte Bronzer, GALifornia Golden Pink Blush, Dandelion Brightening Finishing Powder, and Rockateur Rose Gold Cheek Powder.
I was pretty excited when I saw this because I wanted to get the new GALifornia blush anyways along with some other things, but it was going to be a pretty pricey purchase. This pallet runs for $58.00 without shipping and tax, and I know that sounds a little expensive, especially if you’re used to buying drugstore makeup, but the deal is pretty good. All of the blushes/bronzers are full size, and I didn’t have to pay shipping, I think it was because I exceeded a certain amount or something.
All the shades are insanely gorgeous. The Hoola is perfect for my skin tone, since I’m not too dark or too light. The Hoola lite is definitely too light for me, but I can see how it could fit on other skin tones. Dandelion and Rockateur are both beautiful pinks; Dandelion is more matte, and Rockateur is more shimmery. GALifornia is by far my favorite out of the pallet; the shimmery gold and pink make such a perfect summer blush. I’m in love.
This pallet is limited edition, so I would suggest purchasing it soon if it looks like something you’d like. The shades are all super pretty, and it’s basically five for the price of two. Also, I got a deluxe eyebrow pencil sample for free. I don’t really use pencil for my eyebrows, but it’s a pretty big sample. I’m impressed.
