Review: Benefit Hervana

Hey everyone! 

Another review for you guys! I always love Benefit blushes and bronzer. If you guys read my previous tutorials, I always used Benefit Hoola Bronzer and Sugarbomb Blush. These two are like my favorite! So, recently Benefit just came with a new blush called Hervana. I am pretty sure this name was derived from words 'Her,' and 'Nirvana.' Benefit describes it as "a good karma face powder." Pretty creative, isn't it? 

WHAT: Hervana comes with four shades in a box, and they are: lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose and berry delight. It also comes with a mirror and a brush, but I am never a fan of the brush. 

WHERE TO BUY: It is available at Sephora and Ulta for $28. Click here to buy it online. 

HOW TO USE: It may be impossible to get each color on your cheeks because each color has a small part, so what you do is swirl these shades together with a blush brush (I like to use MAC 109), and sweep it on your cheekbones. When these four shades blend together, it gives you a really rosy pink color. Pretty! The website also says that you can apply high beam (a Benefit highlighter) from the cheekbones to temples to give you that dewy and glowy look. 

This is the rosy pink color after the four shades are blended together

WHY I LOVE IT: I love how the rosy pink color is achieved after you blend the shades together with the blush brush. Also, you can use your eyeshadow blending brush and take the lucky shell color, and the apply it on top of your cheekbones to temples, the center of your nose, and under your brow bone. It will highlight your face! :) 

WHAT I WISH FOR: Definitely the price. Benefit blushes and bronzers have always been $28, and that is pretty expensive for a blush! So, I wish they can lower the price, please? And this blush gives you a soft satin finish, almost matte in my opinion. So, if you are into a matte blush, this definitely for you. I personally like it with a little bit hint of shimmer, so it makes your cheeks glowy! 

WILL I PURCHASE IT AGAIN?: I am pretty sure this product will last a long time :)

RATINGS: 4.8 out of 5. 

So, what do you guys think of this product? Have you tried it out? If now, will you purchase it in the future? I am positive that this blush isn't a limited edition, so you can grab it from the counter anytime you want! :) 

Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own money, all opinions are my own. Benefit does not know me, nor gives me the product.
