Benefit: Majorette Review and #Cheek2Cheek Tag!

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

I've recently really been loving cream blushes and so when Benefit announced the release of Majorette, I couldn't have possibly been more excited! The best thing is, as always with Benefit I definitely wasn't disappointed. Once I had purchased the product, I noticed Benefit have actually created a tag to go alongside this product and so I thought why not combine this with my thoughts on the product itself; Majorette. 

For starters, this product is actually scented! I know some people can be put off by scents on a product but Benefit have definitely done well with this one. To me, the scent smells like a memory. I instantly feel as though I have smelt it before, it's quite like the smell of a warm bubble bath with a hint of orange seeping through. This is definitely a lovely smell to help transition into the fall months from the summer months. 

Then, I cant help but be drawn to the packaging. It's super girly, with mixtures of orange, coral and white which perfectly match its' subtle orange scent. I absolutely adore how the rim of this product is ruffled, giving the effect of flower petals as though this product is one big flower. This may seem small but I feel it adds so much to the look of the product; it's just beautifully subtle. Then inside the actual product itself is a small face mirror, therefore you can take this on the go and touch up throughout the day which well, I don't know about you but this comes in really handy! Finishing with the image of the product, the actual blush itself is engraved with what appears to be either a flower or a sunshine depending on which way you look at it I guess.. But once again a lovely subtle detail which really makes this product. Benefit are renowned for their beautiful packaging and the details on this product really do make me smile.

The actual product itself is a beautiful coral color and blends really well into the cheeks. Once blended the product gives a natural, pink flush of color to the cheeks, this was perfect for me as I am just in awe of a natural blush look. The product has an elegantly, smooth texture and from the first touch feels instantly soft. You can either wear this alone which is a look I have been loving especially for back to school when you want your face to appear a little more 'natural'. Or you can wear this below a powder blush to really define your cheeks and bring out your inner pink flush. I love this underneath the Benefit 'Hervana' as this is another beautifully natural product. Therefore when used above Majorette your cheeks aren't too over powered in pink. Finally as this product is a cream to powder blush, I can say it does actually give a powder looking finish to it, so if you're looking for something dewy then this isn't the product for you. But as I have combination skin, this was perfect for giving my face a flush of color whilst staying matte. 


I thought it would be a really lovely idea to include the actual tag for the Majorette product alongside this review, I tag all of you to complete this tag too! And recommend you to buy Majorette too of course! But without further adieu, let's get straight into the tag..

1. How do you apply Majorette?
I personally prefer to apply this on its' own as an every day cream blush, the natural look this gives is stunning! 

2. What box o' powder do you wear Majorette with? 
As I said before, I like to use Benefit's Hervana. It's various pink and purple tones create a beautiful color which compliments Majorette perfectly leaving you with a look that isn't too overpowering. 

3. What's your top tip for beautiful cheeks?
Blend, blend, blend! A natural looking flush, is a beautiful one.

4. What's your cheekiest nail color?
I would definitely have to say 'Passion Fruit' by Orly. It's a bright pink color, which to me just represents all things flirtatious and cheeky!

5. What's the cheekiest thing you've done? 
I've honestly not done much. I'm so shy!! I'd probably have to go with entering those boxes that ride attendants sit in. Yeah... It was basically a sunny day so I was wearing sunglasses as you do, as I was on the ride they disappeared and one of the guys in the box had them in his hands. I had gotten to know him at the time and he was genuinely waving them round in my face and then he actually put them on! So basically, as I got off the ride I stormed into the box to find them, turns out they weren't there and they were on the floor at the side of the ride and I was then told off by the other man working there as he demanded me to leave the box. I was honestly so embarrassed! 

6. Who's the cheekiest person you know? 
Ajay.. He's one of my closest friends but he doesn't half know how to wind me up!

7. Who's cheeks would you sneak a peak at if you could? 
One Direction.. need I say more? Fashion wise however, I would have to say Diane Von Furstenberg definitely! She's an industry legend!!

8. What cheeky movie character do you most like?
I wouldn't say he was cheeky really.. but Peeta from the Hunger Games or literally any film character Josh Hutcherson has played, he's pretty hot.

9. Have you ever rubbed cheeks with a celebrity?
Yes, I have actually! I've met Union J several times as well as several other X Factor contestants from the 2012 series. I've also met several soap stars from Emmerdale, Coronation Street, Eastenders and Hollyoaks as well as Outnumbered star Tyger Drew-Honey. And my personal favourite, Louis Tomlinson from One Direction. I guess you could say I'm a little bit of a celebrity stalker.. Hahaha! 

10. Your favourite cheeky song? (Basically a guilty pleasure!)  
One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful

11. Who do you 'pass the baton to?' (Tag!) 
As I said before I began answering the questions, I tag all of you reading this to do this tag! If you do, let me know in the comments below as I would love to read your responses to these questions.
