Benefit Gold Rush Blusher

If there's one thing Benefit do well, it's blushers. This time last year I was head over heels in love with my beloved Galifornia blusher, and now there's a new box o' powder on the Bene-block.

Gold Rush is described as a 'rich golden-nectar', scented with sandalwood and vanilla. The packaging has a western theme, and the blusher itself resembles a golden nugget. Like Galifornia, it has a gold overspray, and although this disappears after a couple of uses, it still has a certain luminosity about it, which I love.

The colour itself is very much as described, I would say it's a nude pink, and a hint lighter than their bestselling Rockateur blusher. This would look gorgeous on light skin, and gives a gorgeous, nude glow to my medium skintone. It is a lot more subtle than Galifornia, and some might say much more wearable. It would be great if you don't want a completely matte finish to your skin, but shy away from highlighter. It would even look amazing on collarbones in the summer!

Of course Gold Rush comes armed with it's own curved brush, and while I know a lot of people enjoy using Benefit's blusher brushes, I tend to toss them as I prefer a much fluffier version. I really like this new launch, and I think those of you who aren't big blusher wearers, for fear of looking like you've overdone it, may find this brightens up your face without looking too flushed.

Gold Rush officially launches on Benefit counters on the 31st of March and will retail for £25.50.
