A couple of months ago I made a makeup purchase... (nothing new there) I saw beauty bloggers going mental on twitter about the launch of the new Benefit product ‘Fine One One’ and I knew I needed a slice of this pie... I don’t know about you but I tend to fall superficially in love with a new product. I think it’s the impromptu excitement buzz of being a beauty mad shopaholic. So I buy something, rave about it for a few days then realise it might not have been that great after all... Not this time! This is the cheek version of the touché éclat!!!!! For me anyway...

I went straight to Jess at my local Benefit counter on my lunch break and demanded she tell me all about it... It’s basically a few things in one... a blush stick, with built in highlighter which can be used on cheeks and lips. The packaging is chic (as you would expect from Benefit) and it travels brilliantly in the handbag. It has 3 sections... you point the highlighter side nearest the eye and glide from the apple of your cheek to temple for a very subtle look or you can flip it the other way with the coral at the top for a slightly more dramatic look. You can blend with your finger or a sponge. I have found this product so easy to use that I’ve touched up a few times without even using a mirror! It adds a subtle coral flush to the cheek, perfect for me as I don’t like to wear a heavy blush... It also eliminates the endless drama of carrying your expensive blusher around only to find it smashed to smithereens literally in the first week of buying it. I am totally sold. I look forward to doing my makeup so I can use this product!
