Benefit Fine One One Review




This is one of the products I've been stalking and waiting for (this post was in my drafts and i totally forgot) I must say I was beyond jealous of all you Londeners who went to the launch event and got one for free. But as soon as they were realeased I got my hands on one too. These retail at £23.50 and you get a fair bit of product.

What is this .. it is a highlighter and double blusher in one with a cream texture.



You basically twist the little rotator and swipe straight on to your cheeks and then blend, below are swatches although I couldn't pick them up well on the cam



What I thought:
Personally the packaging sounds like a great idea but the problem is our cheeks aren't flat so its a kind of like having to try use one/two colours then tilt toward the other colour/highlighter. Also I think the pigmentation could have slighlyyy been a bit stronger. Now it sounds like I'm hating on this product and I am maybe on the fence about it due to the flat surface and applying to the cheeks. This can also be used on lips now I think if you are using the edge colours it will be ok to swipe it on but will be fiddly with the middle colour maybe using a lip brush or blusher brush might be my next option I really do love the product and was eagerly excited for it to launch that I do not want to fall out with it so soon. So I'm not too sure maybe I need to work with it more. Overall the colours and highlighter are nice.

  2. I felt the same way about the flat nature of this. I have notice that mine is now curved from it being used in my cheeks. I have to swipe it about 3 times to get good pigmentation. Thanks for the review!

  4. I like it theory but as you said faces are not flat so it'll wear down different (maybe more one colour than the other?). x

  5. Wow that's so pretty! Try placing it flat on your face press down and blend with a buffing brush?? X

  6. I didn't even know this existed. Where have I been?! I love a good highlighting product, but I can see what you mean about it being flat. How strange.

    I love reviews that cover the positive and negatives :) Very helpful.

  7. It looks nice but I don't think the pink one would suit me, depends on how it looks blended together too, xoxo.
