Review: Benefit 'Bella Bamba' Blush

Hello my lovelies, I hope you're all well!

I've always been a big fan of Benefit & I wanted this product for ages so you can imagine how happy I was when I unwrapped it on Christmas day! 
Benefit Bella Bamba Blush.

Benefit say:

'Amplify cheekbones and create the illusion of sculpted features with this 3D watermelon blush. Laced with shimmering gold undertones, bella bamba is taking eye popping pretty to the third dimension...you'll never use traditional blush again!'
As you can see Benefit have greatly improved the packaging for this blush compared to the other boxed blushers & bronzers. I really like the fact it's a flip lid, no more hunting for the lid every time I use it! I was also very pleased to see that a mirror has been included as part of the lid, this is great for touch ups on the go. I also think that the brush has been improved, I wouldn't use this often but it has come in useful when I've taken it out on a night out & haven't wanted to take a proper brush.
The blush itself is a shimmery pink. I was a little bit wary about the fact it was a shimmer finish but I really don't think it's overly shimmery & I don't think it makes you look like a disco ball after applying it, always a winner! I'm not sure about the '3D' claims but it certainly brightens my face up without the use of a highlighter.
This is me wearing the blush, please excuse the awful picture, this was taken after a long day at work & I was exhausted!

Benefit 'Bella Bamba' is available here & it is priced at £23.50

I'm really interested in collecting a few more of the boxed Benefit products, what are your favourites?
