Product information from Sephora:
"What it is:
A limited-edition palette featuring five bestselling, full-size bronzers and blushes.
What it does:
Benefit’s iconic bronzers and blushes come together in this limited-edition cheek palette. It features full sizes of the GALifornia golden pink blush, hoola lite bronzer, the original hoola matte bronzer, rockateur, a rose gold blush, and dandelion, a brightening baby pink blush. It also includes a mini powder brush for a soft, natural-bristle powder brush and a signature Tips & Tricks for seamless application. "
The Benefit Cosmetics Cheek Parade palette comes packaged in a sleek cardboard material. Because Galifornia is more elevated than the other colors, there is a powder print on the mirror upon opening the magnetic lid.
The palette also comes with a Tips and Tricks pamphlet and a natural bristle brush. The tips booklet was extremely helpful for a beginner like me. I wasn't too big of a fan of the brush because it didn't feel as soft as I was hoping it to be, but it still picks up color pretty well.
When I flipped the palette upside down to see if it was sturdy, I found that the palette actually detaches from the box and is removable. Looking underneath the palette, it looks and feels a bit cheap, in my opinion. However, the blushes and bronzers themselves are pretty high quality; it's just that the packaging overall could be improved.
A Closer Look:
"This set contains:
- 0.17 oz/ 5 g GALifornia (sunny golden pink blush)
- 0.28 oz/ 8 g Hoola matte bronzer (matte natural bronzer)
- 0.28 oz/ 8 g Hoola lite matte bronzer (matte natural light bronzer)
- 0.17 oz/ 5 g Rockateur (rose gold blush)
- 0.25 oz/ 7 g Dandelion (brightening baby pink blush) "
Each blush and bronzer has a buttery smooth texture and feels so natural on your skin. All of the colors are gorgeous for a nice, rosy summer glow. I'm in love with all of the colors, but I especially adore Galifornia! It's such a bright, cheery pink and I think Hoola matte gives you the perfect sun-kissed look. You can't go wrong with these colors!
The powders have a light, subtle sweet scent that reminds me of candy. I think it smells lovely.
For five full-sized bronzers and blushes all in one palette, this palette is such an amazing value! The colors are extremely pigmented, lightweight, and natural looking. I love how versatile this palette is; you can create a wide variety of looks. The colors blend like a dream. This palette is overall flattering, long-wearing, and easy to apply. All in all, I'm so fond of this palette!
