You know, I’ll be honest, when I first saw Benefit Hervana Face Powder ($36 Cdn), I thought to myself that it would just not work with my skin-tone. I thought it was more or less a dupe of Sugarbomb, which I love but have to admit, is very sheer on me. Who wants another sheer blush, you know? Boy, was I wrong! Benefit Hervana is different and quite workable on my skin-tone, too. For reference, I have medium skin-tone with a mix of red and olive undertones. I also had another prejudice, that it would be kind of blah. Well, I am more than pleased to announce that I was wrong on all accounts.

The face powder consists of four shades; lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose and berry delight. On me it ends up as a perfect light, matte peachy-pink. It is an incredibly natural blush, a perfect no brainer kind of product. You don’t have to work hard to make it work for you, it just does! The blush is sheer, but extremely buildable in terms of colour, so it should work for most skin-tones except deeper tans and so forth. But on my skin-tone, it works just fine, actually more than fine, I should say – in fact, quite pretty. Here is how it looks on me…

It is quite different from other Benefit blushes, I can say that because I own all of them except “10”. It still shares the wearable quality and sheer, buildable texture with its other sisters. It is rather misleading in the pan or swatch, but translates beautifully on the face. Here is how it looks on me in a different lighting, a more yellow one!

Overall thoughts: Benefit Hervana is a great, effortless blush. It may come across as uninteresting and rather unfriendly (to some skintones) in the pan and on the swatch, but it is very lovely on the face. Do give this a try in store, I am sure you will be convinced.

      Benefitโ€™s blushes always look like they would not show up on certain skin tones, even when you swatch them. But somehow magically they show up on the cheeksโ€ฆ.hmmm! This one is no different. I had a hard time swatching it, but it showed up well on the cheeks.
