Benefit Greetings from Cabana Glama Review & Swatches
Greetings from Cabana Glama!
I bet you think Cabana Glama is some luxurious little island, with pink sandy beaches, and hot waiters serving exotic fruity drinks with umbrellas in them.
But technically, Cabana Glama is a box of makeup and a small spot in my bathroom mirror where I get all tropical and gorgeous for Summer. Believe me, it’s just as good as a tropical island if not better, no sea weed, no sand…score! Sorry I’m a pool girl, not a beach one. There are some places sand should never be, like my feet and other parts of my body. Yak!
Meet Benefit Greetings from Cabana Glama Your Destination Makeup Kit for all good things gorgeous for Summer. This lovely little set is one of Benefit’s newest gems for creating a Summer-y glow in minutes.
You got yourself a little Benefit Hoola, a bit of Benefit Posietint, Some Kind of Gorgeous Foundation, a trio of eyeshadows all in one kit for toting around with you on holiday, to a real tropical island, not just an imaginary one in your bathroom (or where ever you apply your makeup).
This kit makes the bronzer look easy by combining the joys of Posietint together with Hoola. I always find bronze, alone, very difficult to apply and challenging to wear without looking dull. However, bronzer combined with bright cheek stain, it’s a go. A little Posietint on cheeks with a sweep of Hoola gives a healthy glow to cheeks.
My favorite part of the set would be the trio of shadows which includes a lovely glistening shade of peach that wears beautifully on its own called Peach Fizz. Other shades include Bronze Buzz (dusky brown bronze) and Cocoa Pizazz (chocolate brown). Sweep Bronze Buzz all over your lid, highlight with Peach Fizz, and add definition with Cocoa Pizaaz for a quick, easy natural eye look that flatters your newly tanned look courtesy Hoola.
If you’re a Some Kind of Gorgeous fan there’s a little pot of the medium shade included with this kit for lightweight, creamy coverage prior to your makeup application.

Add in a how to guide and sponge applicators and you’re ready for travel!
Once you finish up the makeup, toss the inner tray, and store mementos such as photos or post cards in the reusable box.
Greetings from Cabana Glama is a cute little kit particularly for those who embrace a bronzed look for Summer.
