I mean, who would think of a baton-twirling marching band dancer as a concept for their new cream blush formula? I’ve had Majorette for a while now but only got to pen down my thoughts recently.
First things first
I’m the realest, I haven’t tried any of Benefit’s famed boxed powder blushes. *GASP* The box packaging just didn’t appeal to my “I easily ruin non-plastic/metal compacts” ways. My Naked 1 and Lorac Pro palettes are non-living testaments to that. But when I heard rumors from the beauty world (even before this was launched) that the brand was releasing a blush totally different from their boxed powder ones – packaging and formula-wise – ecstatic would be an understatement.
So on to the product — Majorette * is a cream-to-powder blush encased in a beautiful round compact with a small mirror and magnetic closure. It has a slight peach and pomegranate scent, nothing too overpowering, though. The texture is a soft moussey cream that blends into a velvety, incredibly smooth powder-like finish. Reminds me a lot of my favorite cream-to-powder formula which is Chanel’s.
Benefit Majorette is a beautiful peach shade. It’s one of those peaches that doesn’t turn pinky-peach on me (unless I’m flushing pink cheeks prior), which I appreciate – because who needs another pinky-peach blush, right? My only qualm is that when this is blended, it sheers out to almost nothing so you have to pile on a lot more to get it to really show. Probably not as much as my swatch below (left) because that’s my clumsiness in action (accidentally dipped my pinky finger deep into the blush).
Benefit actually recommends wearing this as sort of a blush base and topping it up with a powder blush. That way, the powder blush is enhanced and becomes more vibrant – kinda like upping the saturation level in VSCOCAM or any photo-editing app. Great for when you have powder blushes that are weak and sheer because this can bring them to life – but for when you like to wear blush alone, this may disappoint you in pigment aspects.
If you have a ton of cream blushes in your arsenal, I’m sure you don’t need another one. I do recommend Benefit Majorette, though, for those who are new to the cream blush game and would like to try one of the best cream-to-powder finishes in the least intimidating way possible (I mean, look at that cute-but-not-too-cute-it’s-annoying packaging). The sheer level of pigment comes to the rescue sometimes when I feel like I just want a natural-looking flush without having to do the whole makeup shebang. Having said that, I feel like this is made for the makeup minimalists – the slap-and-go, don’t need a lot of makeup on ladies.
