Benefit Cosmetics Cheek Parade

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.

Are y’all Benefit users? What are your favorite products?

    I almost bought this! I wish I would have. Your post is making me want to get it now. So convenient having all the colors in one palette. I love benefit products. My favorite is their primer.

      You definitely should get it! I’ve been wanting to try their primer for ages now but I can’t bring myself to buy it. That one and the Smashbox one! Thanks for reading!

      It’s an amazing shade!

        It is – and I find it still looks natural, even though it is bright pink!

    Ooo this looks so pretty! I’ve only ever tried one Benefit cheek product but I loved it so this will have to go on the wish list! x

    So expensive but oh so beautiful!!! I’m hesitating. But maybe it won’t be there anymore when I’m off the No Buy period! xoxo Sarah

      A No Buy Period…that’s what I need! My bank account is draining fast, haha! You can always check back later!

        Haha yes, I have to do a very big purchase this time around, so it was about time I had a No Buy period. I luckily still have enough stuff to review for the time being haha. xoxo

      I haven’t! This is the first Benefit purchase I’ve ever made, if I’m being honest! I hope to make more soon, though!

      • April 11, 2017 / 4:28 pm

    This palette looks amazing!!!
    I already own Rockateur on its own or else I might be tempted. I really love the shade Galifornia.
    The palette is really good value if you get those all separately, it’d be so much more expensive.

      Do you like Rockateur? And yeah, it’s such a good deal!

      • April 11, 2017 / 4:53 pm

        Yes, I really enjoy Rockateur – it’s a very versatile shade.

  9. April 11, 2017 / 3:48 pm

    $58 is a really good price for the palette considering the Hoola bronzer goes for around $22 individually!
