Benefit’s NEW ‘Majorette’ Cream Blusher: The Prettiest I Ever Did See

The long anticipated launch of Majorette has finally arrived, with Benefit launching their first forray into cream blush. Described as a ‘booster blush’ that’s designed to amplify your natural flush, Majorette can be used alone or under your normal blusher to add a subtle warmth to skin. It’s incredibly lightweight, the cream-to-powder finish adding just a touch of colour upon first application, ensuring it can be built up to the desired result or buffed into skin for a really natural finish. I’m a big fan of cream blushers, especially during those transitional months where you’re not quite ready for a full-on pink cheek but have already hung-up your bronzer; this little tub provides just the right texture and colour for practically any complexion.

I’m not too convinced about wearing this under regular powder blush
(who has the time or patience?) but it is a great little product and a
great first step into a new world of blushers from Benefit, the brand
that has made their mark using the category – blush boxes and cheek
tints are no doubt what they’re known for. Majorette is packaged in the most delightful box I’ve ever seen, designed to look like a drum and opening to reveal a little mirror and domed blush. I’m so pleased they’ve replaced their card boxes with something a little more sturdy, Majorette being held in a solid plastic compact that’s much more handbag appropriate than their previous launches… How many times have you smashed a blush in your bag or thrown away a tatty old box that still had half a pan of makeup? Although this is an eye-watering £23.50 (*fans self*) it is beautiful and the texture is so easy to use, making it one of my new faves and the perfect shade to add to my repertoire. What do you think of Benefit’s latest blush launch? Are you a fan of their blush boxes? 

Benefit’s Majorette cream blush is available online priced £23.50.

      Totally depends on what colour you're after! This is only available in one shade, but Chubbies come in lots of different colours.

    This does look amazing – I saw it on counter a couple of weekends ago! It's so much bigger than I expected it to be! I imagined Bourjois blush pot sort of size, but was pleasantly surprised! The price is a bit much though I think. I do love Benefit, but sometimes I think it's mightily

    I usually hate cream blusher and will bash benefit too easily at times, but I actually love this blush!

    I like that colour. It remind me of Mac Peaches. It's a real 60's girl blush. Bloomin' Rouge

    I wasn't sure when I first saw these on blogs as I thought it would be quite orange but it looks lovely from your swatch. I think it's one for pale girls!Danniella

    Do you think Benefit is trying to be the next NARS orgasm with this blush? It IS a bold move to release one universal shade of blush after all. Claudlyy
