Review: Benefit Bella Bamba Lipgloss.




Benefit was one of the first premium brands I tried in my youth, and I'm still a big fan of their products (not to mention the beautiful packaging) so I couldn't wait to find out more about the matching lipglosses to the amazing boxed blushers. 

I love the Benefit boxed blushers and own a few, they're all great shades and look lovely on my dressing table. I've blogged before about my love for Benefits Bella Bamba blusher (post here) and it's a gorgeous, gorgeous shade so I couldn't wait to try out some of the accompanying glosses. 

Bella Bamba blush is a bright 3D pink to give cheekbones some definition, as well as a gorgeous flush. The Lipgloss is described as "sheer bright watermelon" which I think sums it up perfectly. Whereas the blush (I'm wearing this and the lipgloss in the above picture) is quite pink, the lipgloss is a pink/red and goes with the blush perfectly. 
The shades are meant to compliment each other, and I think these work so well together.

Bella Bamba lipgloss isn't a shade I'd usually pick out, but I do love the way it looks on my lips and how well it goes with Bella Bamba. I have quite a few blushers similar to Bella Bamba blusher, so I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of this. 

What do you think of the Benefit blushers and lipglosses?

  1. Your eyes really stand out in this photo :) I don't have many Benefit products personally and I love the swatches I've seen of both blushes and bronzers but I am kind of put off by the box I think! xo

  8. I love Benefit. I wish I have all of their product. Their packaging are just collectible. I love the gloss. Tried at my local Benefit counter. They are amazingly not sticky and gloss so well. Bonus for the cute packaging.

  15. That colour suits you so well, it's gorgeous!
    I had a Benefit 'makeover' the other day and tried out the Dallas version of this lipgloss, it was so nice and smelled amazing. I'm not usually a fan of lip gloss but it was quite pigmented and not too sticky, tempted to treat myself to one!

  24. Hi Kate!

    I love these matching products! they definitely simplify the process of choosing what blush/lip combo to wear. Benefit were one of the first premium brands I tried too, still love them!

    I have a non beauty related question for you, where is your gorgeous necklace from?

  29. The lipgloss really suits you! I tried the Coralista lipgloss when I had my make up done at Benefit recently, it was a lot more pigmented than I expected. The only boxed blusher I own is hervana, definitely want to try some more! :) x
