Benefit Majorette | The Nicest, Peachiest Cream Blush

Benefit Majorette | The Nicest, Peachiest Cream Blush

Benefit launched their new cream blusher, Majorette*, only a couple of weeks ago, but I'm already certain that Benefit's new cream-to-powder blusher is going to a staple beauty item of mine. 

Majorette is loooovely from the packaging design (of course! I wouldn't expect anything less, Benefit knows how to do cute!) to the actual blush itself, it's love at first sight! Just look at it! *swoon*

Even though I am obsessed with blushers, cream blushes have always been a bit of a weird one for me - I find them either way too dewy or too greasy for my skin. I also have troubles blending, I haven't got the skill up to scratch yet. 

So, when I heard that Benefit's Majorette is a light cream-to-powder formula with a matte finish, I knew this could possible be a winner for me! The texture of this cream blusher is velvety and it's super easy to blend on to skin without looking streaky or patchy. It evens out nicely with a few lights taps using your finger tips.

Described as a peachy pink, Majorette comes out more of a warm orange tone on my skin. It's a soft enough shade that would suits every type of skin tone and complexion, it's really that subtle and natural-looking. 

In fact, Benefit Cosmetics calls this product a "booster blush", a blush that amplifies. You can wear Majorette on it's own for a natural flush of colour or you can use it as a boost by adding your favourite powder blush over it to perk up your cheeks!

Another thing that is really nice about Majorette is the scent. Scented make-up can be extremely off-putting sometimes but the new Benefit blusher smells of peach and pomegranate! I usually like make-up to be odourless or lightly scented, but when they do smell of something I like, I can't get enough of it! Most brands keep their "fragrances" a secret, so it's nice that Benefit added a fruity smell and are proudly telling people what it is. It's a nice touch.

Majorette is priced at £23.50 and is available from all Benefit counters at Debenhams, Boots, John Lewis, and House of Frasers.

  3. Majorette looks so beautiful, it's a shade that I don't have in my collection so I can toooootally justify buying. I have a Debenhams voucher to spend from a press day so it's very tempting! x

  9. I heard about that launch too but I haven't had the chance to go visit the store yet. The swatch looks really pretty on your skin, but then again I love anything peachy. :)

  12. Oh wow now this shade is beautiful. I have to admit I'm not always that convinced by the packaging of Benefit blushers however this is really very nice.

  13. I love the look of this, I have been dying to try it since seeing it on twitter but worried about the formula- so glad it has a matte finish xxx

  14. I cannot get over how cute this packaging is! The formula also sounds amazing, I've always been interested in cream to powder formulas xxx

  19. Hm...I need to swatch this! Although, I'm more curious and excited about a blush palette I saw someone posting as a Holiday set! <3
    Take care*

  20. This looks so lovely. I'm not normally a fan of blushes, actually. I have naturally pink skin and I find that blushers just enhance that fact (I think I apply them wrongly though, so it's my bad). This blush has me tempted to try using blushers again… pretty hard to resist that adorable packaging!

    I feel you on the cream blush front. I just never seem to get those right. Glad you found a good'un, I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for it.

  21. Is this like the other liquid tents created by Benefit?

    1. Hello Faye.

      No, Majorette is not like any other liquid tints created by Benefit Cosmetics or otherwise. Majorette is a cream blusher, which when it's applied onto skin, turns in to a matte powder finish. This blusher is not in a liquid form, unlike the cheek and lip tints. Hope this helps.

      Many thanks x
