Benefit Fine One One is a sheer brightening color for cheeks & lips that I gave you a sneak peek of a few weeks ago. It recently launched for sale on Benefit’s website so I thought I’d review it for you now that it is available for purchase.
Take a look!
This looks like a little trial size deodorant stick as it has a swivel up design. The tri-color design features three shades of color which are pink champagne, sheer watermelon, and soft coral.
My lips aren’t crazy about this as the cream finish feels rather dry so I’d suggest for cheeks only unless you really like mod creams and don’t mind the dryness.
On my cheeks…it’s gorgeous. Although it seems like it might prove a chore to apply it actually blends out to a perfect orange-coral that’s very natural looking on my medium fair skin. It might prove a little sheer on darker skin tones but anyone with fair or medium skin will notice it creates a very nice glow of coral. The formula is creamy and easy to swipe on and blend out. I was worried I’d have stripes of pink and coral patchiness going on but the shades just meld together as you blend. I like how easily I can sheer it down to a natural peach or amp it up for more of a corally pop! You can build it easily without every over doing it.
Wear time is iffy but that’s the case for all cream blushes for me. Thank goodness it’s portable enough to take with me for touch ups. I get about two to three hours of wear before it disappears completely.
Overall, Benefit Fine One One is a little pricey at $30 but if you like cream blushes you might overlook that. The color is a nice healthy coral which should be suitable for many skin tones but darker ones might need to spend a little quality time with it and build it up for the best color pay off.
Will you be picking it up?
