A few weeks ago I asked the very beautiful Shea to review Benefit’s Hervana Face Powder for The Daydreamer and she kindly agreed. She also took the photographs – a girl of many talents!
“Firstly, the product was packaged nicely in a cute little box. It came with a small brush and a mirror hidden under the lid, which is handy for those emergency make-up moments. The brush is quite good as it gives you an even application of blusher. The bristles are angled slightly to achieve better coverage on the check bones. As well as a clever brush and compacted mirror the powder inside the box is presented in a very simple yet nice design.
The powder has four different colours arranged in a swirl pattern (pink, purple, peach and cream) to add a mix of colour and depth. However, I found that the colour was too faint to notice which left me applying about four coats to make it stand out. I decided to wear it on Sunday to see if it would last all day and despite the lack of colour when applying, Hervana did last all day. If you wanted a more dramatic colour then I doubt this is for you, however this is great if you wanted to achieve a natural look.
I would say this product is probably best for everyday wear as it gives a natural and subtle look. I also think that it would be good for bridal make up as it adds a natural soft glow to your checks. I did like this product and would definitely buy it in the future.”
As usual, Benefit come up trumps in the beauty department!
Thank you, Shea!
