NEW! Benefit Bella Bamba

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 22 - 2010

Described as a 3D Brightening Pink Face Powder, I’m wondering if this is the Benefit blush we’ve all been waiting for?

Bella Bamba is described as the triple dimension of pink!

[stextbox id=”alert” bcolor=”b0c4de” bgcolor=”e6e6fa”]Laced with shimmering gold undertones, this 3D watermelon blush is multi-dimensional to the naked eye… wear it on your cheeks or dust it lightly all over your face to look brighter, perkier, prettier![/stextbox]

I’m always excited to see a new Benefit face powder and this is no exception.  It’s set to retail at £23.50 and is due out in February 2011.

Will you be heading to your local counter to give this one a spin?

    probably will give this a miss, i find the benefit box blushes to be a horrendous rip off! the colour sounds fairly dupeable as well.

  2. Sounds interesting, however I’m sure the price seems to creap up eveytime (Or mayb I’m getting old!.. I remember back in the day….!!) x

  3. It looks like my coralista? Strange!

  4. Thank you for sharing this. Sadly I won’t be purchasing this from Benefit or any other Benefit products until they are cruelty free.

    I used to bumlick Benefit stuff so hard back when I was at uni. Then I realised how unfriendly it is for people with darker skin. The only thing I loved was the Dr Feelgood and that stopped working.

    I wanted Lemon-Aid but it was too bright for my skin so I didn’t get it, their blushers seem to vanish when I put them on so I will be leaving well alone.

    It’s a shame because there are so many women of colour who would love to use Benefit stuff, if only the feeling was mutual.

    It looks interesting, i just wish Benefit blushes’ packaging wasn’t so bulky, especially as i never use the brush provided.

  7. Sarah says:

    i think this looks crap, partly because benefit are pretty good at marketing a product stuff that claims to do something amazing, when infact it doesnt. i dont think i would ever dust my face in pink powder, if its a miracle product i’ll wait for me me me to do one!

    sorry for the angry comment, they kind of annoy me. xxx

      I feel the same way Sarah. I went to buy LemonAid all happy it would sort me out and the SA said it was only for lighter skintones, I asked if they had one for darker tones and she replied back very snootily and said something like “we only cater to certain shades of skin, everyone else has to buy elsewhere”. Way to put someone off the brand. I had the same issues with That Gal primer, it did nothing apart from make me look like a sweet potato.

    • NOOoooooOOOOOooooo you MUST dust your face in pink powder. Go to Illamasqua immediately and get the MUA to try their pink loose powder on your fizzog. Love it! xx

      • Rhamnousia says:

        I’ve heard nothing but good things about that powder, the last time I went to their store I got excited by other things and totally forgot about it, I’m going this weekend and I’ll make sure I remember to have a look!

  8. Joice says:

    I agree with Sarah. Benefit always markets their products like they’re completely new and innovative. To me this looks just like any other peachy pink shimmery blush.
    And if everything is going to have 3D slapped on it from now on, I refuse to buy, just on principle. Like every friggin’ thing is *HD* now, HD cigarettes? HD mascara? Really?!

  9. Robyn says:

    I gotta agree… as much as I love some Benefit prdoducts, I hate their ‘innovative’ bullshit. I’ve only met one face powder of theirs I didn’t like, though, so I will probably check this out.

  10. tass says:

    Looks like a lighter version of Coralista and perhaps similar to Orgasm? Anyway I won’t be touching this with a bargepole. I think Benefit blushes are overpriced and plop!

  11. See, now I *love* Coralista… and I’m hoping that this is basically Coralista but with a little something extra. I dunno what I’m expecting that will set this apart… but I’m hoping against all hopes that it won’t be great big chunks of gold glitter.

    As for the skintone issue… I’m with you, Benefit are definitely not a brand that should be championed for their broad shade range.

  12. I like you lot when you get all feisty on me xx

  13. Emily says:

    Does it make me a bit thick to not quite understand how a blush can be 3D? I’m not quite sure what I think of this … it just looks a little meh to me x

  14. hippy says:

    does anyone else find the packaging extremely cheap looking? just wondering…..

  15. polarbelle says:

    I like the Benefit face boxes. Have three or four…but what the heck is 3D blush? I mean really? I’ll just have to see the color in person to decide if it’s worth it, I guess.
