I am not going to lie- when I first read about Benefits Fine One One I was not totally sold, I was worried it might be just a little gimmicky and not be something I would actually want to use on a day to day basis. Skip forward to when I had this shiny rose gold cream blush in my hands and it is a totally different situation. I really love it! I love the colour pay off, how easy it is to use and how long it lasts.
Fine one one is a twist up sheer cream tint that applies in three colours- pink champagne sheer watermelon and soft coral which when blended leave a beautiful 'perky' flush on the cheeks that is absolutely stunning. You place the stick ( with the champagne shade on the stop!) and give a little swipe along the cheekbones and then use your fingers of brush to blend the shades together and BAM- a beautiful glow.
The product is a cream to powder finish that is completely build-able, after the initial 'streak' I like to put it near the apple of my cheek and turn it a full 360 degrees for an extra pop of colour before blending, or if I am heading out for the day I will add a touch of blusher on top.
With some cream blushes I find that the staying power is not that great but I was thrilled that lasts my full work day really well. I was also worried that when applying the product from the stick that it would drag or move my base but it is a lot softer to apply then I had anticipated and there was no movement at all- phew.
What I really love about this little invention is its compact size and multi use function it is honestly the handiest product for keeping in your bag, taking on holiday or even after the gym, I am just back from a trip to London and Brussels and this was the perfect product to keep with me in my bag. You can use any of the colours separately so you have a separate highlight, or two gorgeous colours for popping on the lips.
I ADORE the rose gold packaging and am impressed with the product inside, I am so pleased the Fine One One has proven me wrong! For any other doubters you must get along to a Benefit counter and give it a try in real life, promise you will be impressed.
You can pick up a Fine One One for £23.50 online or in store now.
