Benefit Box O'Powder Hervana : Review and Swatch

Benefit Hervana, yes.

Ummm .. Where do i have to start? I believe most of you has been heard about Benefit Box O'Powder in Hervana. It's kinda popular in Blogosphere, so many beauty blogger has wrote about it. I'm just another one :D

Nonetheless, i'd re-writing what you might already knew .. Hervana was named as abbreviation of Her and Nirvana. Meanwhile, wearing this blush supposed to make you looks like you're in Nirvana.. Good idea, but i don't think it would work for everyone. Let see why.

Ah, my little dog featured in this pic X))

Benefit Box O'Powder in Hervana came in the same cardboard box, like the other box o'powders do.
But Hervana's top part is stay attached with the bottom part, and it also has mirror inside.
Pic of the insider is below.

Among the benefit box o'powders that i have, Benefit Hervana's brush is my favorite. It's angled and fluffy, unlike the old type which stratchy and very thin. It's also able to pick up pigments very well.

Hervana retailed for $28 and contains of 0.28 ounces of product. It's might be the most expensive one compared to Cargo, Tarte or Nars' blushes.

Hervana has 4 different shades : lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose and berry delight. Each shade has 2/8 part of pinwhile design. Each of them are kinda small so it's hard to use each shade alone. However, it makes them easier to combine.

From left to right : lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose, berry delight, all shades together.

Okay, i'm not providing the best swatch among the blogosphere. They're very hard to swatched alone, i hope you can get what i mean. Swatch has been done over Illamasqua light liquid foundation in LF 210 because it has the stronger pink undertone among my foundation.

Below, i provided better pic of all the shades blended together :

Benefit Hervana is a warm pink with peachy undertone. The finish will be satin with very subtle shimmer.

As we all know (i assumed everyone has seen my swatch above), Hervana is very soft in pigmentation, means if you're darker than me (i'm using revlon colorstay in sand beige, for reference) it would really hard to shown. And even you're in the same shade with me, you'll need a natural blush brush to apply this. Luckily, Hervana's brush is suit that criteria.. The first blush brush that really works!

Because it's smooth and low in pigmentation, it's only stay about 5-6 hours on my skin. I wouldn't say that's very bad, because i adoring color they create together on me.. it gives me a natural but lovely flushed i haven't get from another blush.

.. And Hervana is scented. The first time, i feel it's strongly scented. But now, it's lower. And the scent doesn't transfer to your skin. At least it's not disturbing me.

I think it would last kinda long. Even if i need 2-3 swipes to make it shown better, it contains of 8g of product, means i wouldn't hit its pan in short time :p

Thanks for reading my review! ^^

  1. I never knew where the name came from! The blush is very pretty and I kind of like the box packaging (even though it's not durable) because it's a bit like Benefit's trademark packaging lol.
