Be bold with Bella Bamba!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Benefit Cosmetics can do no wrong!


This time I’m praising another one of their mini boxed wonders; Bella Bamba.

Bella Bamba is a highly pigmented, watermelon blush, laced with shimmering gold undertones. Bella Bamba has multiple dimensions of pink pigment with subtle gold throughout which shimmers in the light.


I usually find traditional, block-colour blushes quite boring and always end up having to apply a second powder to compliment them, but Benefit got there before me with this one! The built in golden shimmer and 3D watermelon powder means there is no need for anything else on the cheeks for a perfect, warm, pink glow! The eye-popping, pretty, watermelon shade and shimmering gold effect mean this powder is not for the faint hearted!


Bella Bamba is packaged in a flip-top box, with a mirror and brush. The new, improved packaging is set to hit all of their face powders in time. It really is much handier than the lift-off lids on their other powders and safer for your makeup bag too!


Amplify cheekbones and create the illusion of sculpted features with this 3D watermelon blush. Sweep on the apples of your cheeks and dot at the hairline for a total thrill of dimensional color. See the following picture for a top beauty tip from Benefit.


Accentuate the curves of your face with our 3D technique: Sweep on a ‘3’-shape starting at your temples, curving in toward the apples of your cheeks and curving out and down to your jawline!

If you’re a fan of more subtle coral tones I would stick with Sugarbomb – but if like me you also like to try something a little bit more shimmery, pink and daring from time to time, then Bella Bamba is the one for you!

Available in Brown Thomas and BT2 Stores nationwide; €33.50.
