Benefit Cosmetics-Powderazzi Review, Photos, Swatches

The popular Powderazzi by Benefit Cosmetics is, 3 of their best selling powders in one little box. Lucky I got a chance to try it out.

Ok so let's start with the packaging. The powders are packed in a gold base box with a funky pink printed top. Look's more an accessory is one doesn't know. The top comes off easily, so one has to be careful when keeping this in a makeup bag, as a little bulge can damage the product. The powder pans are fixed in nicely alongside Benefit's own square brush. The box seems mighty big in pictures but it is small and contains sample sized pans. This is more of a try before you buy thing. But I'm quite happy about it, as it'll last a few good months even if I use it regularly, and it's better than having to purchase individual boxes of each powder.

 The first one is Dallas, which is my favorite of the bunch. It is a sheer shimmery mauve blush, perfect for evenings. It's a warm shade, so it can very well support a formal evening look. Not extremely shimmery, but has enough sparkle to add a little shine to your face.

The second in the trio is Hoola, which is a medium cocoa bronzer. I even used it for contouring and it works wonderfully. If you're looking for a shimmery sun kissed glow, you will be disappointed with this one, as it is matte.

And finally we have Coral Ista. I've already reviewed it here. The box contains 3.0 grams of each powder, plus an application brush, which sheds (I don't like it!).

Rating:  4.5/5

Conclusion: I love the idea of trio's as one gets to try more products. Benefit is one of my favorite brands in terms of quality and packaging. Powderazzi is another addition to my routine makeup. Recommended? Yes!
