I love Benefit Blushes and collect them all, but this one might just be my new favorite, edging out Rockateur by a narrow margin. The weather in New England just warmed up this week and I'm finally in a Spring frame of mind, so this blush was a welcome sight with its beautiful golden sun pattern stamped into the top and funky boho chic packaging. It also has a summery grapefruit vanilla scent that you can smell as soon as you open the box (it disappears once it's on your cheeks).
Where to buy: Sephora, Ulta
The golden shimmer on the top is actually an overspray that disappears after the first swipe or two, but the blush still has a slightly golden sheen on the skin. It doesn't appear glittery or shimmery though, it's more of a satin finish.
GALifornia is more pigmented than Benefit's other blushes and shows up easily on my fair skin tone... I actually have to use a light hand and be careful not to overdo it! It's also very silky and buildable so if you have a medium to deep skin tone, you'll be able to wear this as well.
Compared to Benefit's Coralista blush, GALifornia is much brighter and more pink, while Coralista is a light peachy shade.
Overall, I'm in love with GALifornia and I can see it easily becoming one of Benefit's best-selling blushes. It's a gorgeous shade that can be worn by pretty much anyone!
Have you tried GALifornia yet? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Available now at Sephora and Ulta. It's also available in the Cheek Parade Blush/Bronzer palette, which contains five full sized cheek powders for $58 (a $145 value) at Sephora and Ulta.
