Benefit Fine One One

I may not be the best judge on this as this is the first cream blusher I have ever tried so I don't know how it compares with others on the market but having used my trusty Estee Lauder powder blush for years I am now a complete convert!

You may have read about my recent haul when I recently visited Southampton (if not, you can read it here) where I popped over to the Benefit counter in Debenhams just to pick up another tube of the POREfessional and came out with that, High Beam, Brow Zings and Fine One One after having the MUA test them all on me (well it would be rude not to wouldn't it!)

As I was feeling particularly frivolous at the time I didn't really worry about the £23.50 price tag, but I can honestly say that this product is completely worth it.

The colour is fantastic and lasts all day. It consists of three different shades in one, pink champagne, sheer watermelon and soft coral which gives you an instant lift, shape and pop.

As you would expect with Benefit, the packaging is completely gorgeous too (so much so that I haven't been able to throw it away yet!) I love the play on words - Beauty emergency? Call Fine one one (sounds like Nine one one) and the front is shaped like a police badge.

The blush glides on using the stick applicator from the apple of your cheek to your temple, then you blend the colour with your fingertips in an upward circular motion. You can also use it on your lips but I haven't tried this yet as I am still in love with my Rimmel Apocalips.

This has made its way firmly into my Feb/Mar favourites and will probably end up staying there throughout the spring/summer too!

Have you tried Fine One One? What are your thoughts?


  1. I want this soo much! It’s so gorgeous, especially the coral shade and will look so great on a bare face during summer!xx

  2. hahaha I agree that you feel bad not buying when the staff are really lovely !!!!
    I think this looks great but I am so new to blushers so sticking to powders :)

  3. I've been dying to see a swatch of this, I think this is the first post I've seen where there's been a swatch rather than a finished look or just the product, as well as useful info on how to use the bloody thing!

    Thanks x


  4. Oooh this looks really lovely! Really want to try it! :)
