Galifornia is a bright coral pink with a luminous finish.

Hoola is a pale brown with a matte finish.

Rockateur is a peachy pinky nude with a luminous finish.

Swatches on medium skin, similar to NC30

Hoola has been one of my favorite bronzing powders for so long, it's not orange and I love the matte finish. It looks good on light to tan skin tones!

Dandelion is quite sheer in comparison to the other shades, but I love it on me when my skin is at its palest (NC15). I think it would look chalky on tan or darker skin, but it's very pretty on lighter complexions!

I fell in love with Rockateur too, it has a beautiful luminous finish! It looks good on me whether my skin is pale or tan, but I'm not sure if it would show up on someone darker than NC30.

Galifornia has a shimmery overspray, which goes away after a few uses. I personally prefer it without the overspray, as I don't like very sparkly blushes. It's a beautiful summery color, especially on tan skin!

Gold Rush has an overspray too, but it doesn't go away. The golden sparkles are in the blush too, and I wish it wasn't the case because it's a beautiful color. It's a matter of taste, I guess. Oh and by the way, I find the scent to be quite intense (I don't hate it, though).

Benefit Blush Bar Bronzer Palette Review Gold Rush

Ahhhhh I don't know how I feel about this palette. I don't care much for the new Gold Rush shade and I never use the brushes that come with Benefit's blushes, but I love the other colors!

It's such a good deal for the price too : For only $78 CAD, you get 5 full-size blushes and a bronzer! (and each powder is valued at $38 CAD)

Benefit Blush Bar Palette Review

The Benefit Blush Bar palette retails for $78 CAD for 30g and is available at Sephora.

  1. Nice Baby, thank you for this post, I bought mine last week, still trying the colours, but I like hoola very much. Never had any of these.
