Benefit Bella Bamba Review + Swatch

Are you dissapointed with past Benefit blushes that haven't shown up well on your medium to dark skin tone or even to your liking? You NEED Bella Bamba in your life!
Recently Benefit came out with a new blush called Bella Bamba ($28)icon. It's best described as a "watermelon" pink blush with shimmers. The packaging also has the words "3D" which is due to the shimmer that gives highlighting and dimension to cheekbones.

Bella Bamba Swatch

The packaging has also noticably been revamped with a flip top lid + mirror as well as a sturdier, rounded blush brush. And then there's the sparkly, holographic outer box wrapping.

Now if you're a Benefit Cosmetics fan you may think this is alot like Coralista, iconbut on the contrary... After comparing Bella Bamba vs Coralista I'd pick Bella Bambaicon.

Coralista is very pretty with peach undertones, but also bit too light for nights out. I always find myself needing to layer it over another blush so it shows up when I'm taking pictures. (I have medium/olive skin and light blushes can look washed out on me.) 

Another difference is the smell. Coralista had a tropical fruity smell, while Bella Bamba has more of a sweet, candy fragrance to it.
As always Benefits blushes have always great quality and pigmentation - then again, they better be for the price!

You'll love and NEED Bella Bamba if:
  • You loved Coralista.
  • Are looking for something slightly darker then NARS Orgasm and/or where dissapointed by it.
  • People with dark or olive skin tones. Due to the shimmers and sheen it will show up well too.
  • If you want a pink, buildable blush that can be used lightly with smokey eyes, and more heavily with natural eye make-up.

I have been thinking about buying this blush, but I recently bought Nars Super Orgasm and the colors look similar. I will probably end up getting this sometime, but I think I'll wait a bit because I just bought a pricey mascara and 2 pricey blushes. It looks beautiful though. :)
