Benefit Cosmetics Cheek Parade Palette [Swatches + Review] by Victoria Huynh on May 4, 2017

If you loved Benefit Cosmetics' iconic bronzers and blushes individually, then you're going to fall in love with their limited edition palette, Cheek Parade. You get five products in one palette! Now that's what I call a steal. Read on for my full review:

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!

In Action

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!
