Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Blush Set


I bought this set from Sephora during the VIB sale and I love it so much, I definitely had to share! Blush is my thing, I own more than I care to disclose and I'm not 100% sure that I have enough. Ok I am quite sure that I do have enough, but I just love blush. You feel me?

When I first saw this set being advertised, I knew I had to have it. I actually didn't own any of the Benefit blushes but had always wanted to try several of them. It's hard to spend $28 on ONE blush though. This set being only $36 for 5 of their very popular ones, a Hoola Bronzer and a mini Watt's Up highlighter is a phenomenal deal. 


Take a little peek inside.... 






Overall thoughts? I've used it every single day since I got it last week and I'm loving it! The blushes are beautiful and have the perfect amount of pigment. Bella Bamba with a little bit of Dandelion on top has been my favorite combo so far. 

Cons? Why oh why Benefit did you have to put it in the bulky packaging? It's cute but just too big. I have plenty of counter space so that isn't an issue for me but this would be so great for traveling if it wasn't so bulky. You can definitely depot them and put them in a Z Palette or something else, but it'd be nice if it was slimmer packaging. 

Also, it's sold out everywhere now! I don't know if places will be restocking, I sure hope so though. The only place I could find it online for sale is Macy's. If you're a blush fun and have wanted to try some of their blushes, I highly recommend going for it. It's really an awesome deal! This would make a perfect and affordable Christmas gift for any beauty lover too. 

Do you own any Benefit blushes?

Hope you all have the best weekend! It's going to be freezing cold here in Oklahoma. I'm not being overly dramatic, like 20's & 30's all weekend. You'll find me in my flannel pj's, tucked inside my flannel sheets or by the fire, with fuzzy socks on and a hot drink in my hand…

  1. I own one Benefit blush that I've been hoarding for awhile, so I'm really impressed with what a great deal this kit is! And I hear you on that cold weather (ugh) - I kid you not, we had a light dusting of SNOW in NY yesterday!

  4. I'm so jealous that you got your hands on this set - I was this close to getting it myself! I only have the Rockateur blush, but it's one of my favorites. Dandelion and Bella Bamba look right up my alley, too. That set really is an incredible value for what you get. Stay warm this weekend - I'll be hibernating just like you! xo

  6. I really love blushes! Lately I've been wearing only foundation, blush and mascara. Trying to go for a wintery eskimo look I guess...

  7. I'm a little mad at myself for not getting this when I was in the store during the sale!! I seriously love all things benefit and their blushes are amazing!! I agree they are a little bulky...but there was a rep at the store and see said all their pods can be taken out and put into different packaging...that's what she said but who knows!

  8. These blushes sound amazing! The packaging is adorable but I agree, a little bulky. I'm sad it's sold out now! I'm going to have to keep an eye out for it! Happy Friday!

  12. I do not own benefit blushes and I think you know how I feel about benefit! I'm loving the Bella Bamba one! Happy weekend friend! xoxo

  13. That is a great deal! I'm loyal to my Tarte blushes though. I don't know if I could give them up. How does the Benefit compare with staying power?

  14. Oh I love Watts up and Hoola and could have probably used the minis in there! Thank you for all of the swatches, I'm in need of a new blush but am not sure what I want to try next- rockateur looks gorgeous!

  15. I own just one benefit blush. This palette looks awesome (except the packaging, totally agree that was a fail). I'll have to see if I can somehow snap it up somewhere.

  16. I had this in my online cart, then decided against it because the packaging is so big! I'm also a hoarder of blushes, so part of me wishes I had caved and got it. It's such a good deal! I already own a full size Rockateur, and it's SO pretty! I always forget to reach for it though!

  17. Blush SO completes any look, I love it. I honestly only have 1 blush and I use it up until it's gone.it's bright pink from Tarte but I don't think they make it anymore!

  18. I really liked the look of it but I just don't have the space to keep another bulky palette, no matter how pretty it is! What are your throughts on Rockateur? I'm always drawn to the colour but the sheen seems a little much for someone with more oily skin. I thought I was set for blush until a makeup artist used Dior Rosey Glow on me last night and I fell in love!

  19. ooooh this looks amazing! such a good gift idea as well :)

  20. I'm addicted to blush too. There is no such thing as too much!

  21. Such pretty colors! I've never tried Benefit makeup but I'd like to!

  22. I love all Benefit makeup and I post about their products often (I could be a They're Real spokesperson at this point) but I dont have any of their blushes. I will have to look into this!

  23. Thanks for sharing your review! I like that Dandelion color. I've started using Laura Mercier blush though and I love it. It is subtle but noticeable and it stays on well. Its freezing here too and I'll be like you on the couch with my hot beverage!! Other than working of course. :-) Have a wonderful weekend! :-)

  24. This looks amazing!! Where was I during the VIB sale?!! I would've picked up a few things for sure!! Blush is aomething that I don't really have much of, i don't know how to pick them! Any tips?

    ReplyDelete
  25. yes! i have them separately but love this kit. it is perfect!

  26. I don't have any Benefit blushes but I love Watt's Up! I almost, almost bought this set during the VIB sale and I should have done it. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled or get it from Macy's I mean who doesn't love having a variety of shades to play with?

  28. I really don't like the packaging either! But the colors are beautiful and I'm thinking I will most likely buy this. Thanks for reviewing it!

  29. I also purchased this set and I LOVE it! I only owned Hoola and really wanted a few from the set...so the timing of this release was perfect!
