Benefit Hervana Swatches

I know you guys are excited as I am about Benefit’s Hervana release or at least I’d like to think you get as stupid as I do about new makeup launches…

If you happen to fall into that crazy, I’m drooling so hard right now category here’s a swatch of Hervana to hold you over until my review goes live.

I’m still playing but she feels like dusty pinky purple shade…quite interesting and I think it’ll work rather well on fairer skin.

We’ll see!

What do you think?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Ooh looks very pretty 🙂 I may have to hit up that one day sale (if i remember!) 😛

    • the Muse

      if it’s cheaper from me to you let me know and I’ll grab it and ship over for ya!

      • the Muse

        ps made need to bother you for something anyway shortly from m’asia! hehe!

  • Mandy

    Why is it only .28 oz? Did benefit reduce their blush size? I have Georgia and Thrrob and both of those are .42

    • april

      yes they did, they repackaged all boxed powders and now come with a mirror, i think it began last year ? because bella bamba has always been .28

        • Donna

          Yeah, I’m pretty pissy about the reduction too. Plus, I don’t really like the new boxes. You can’t take the lid all the way off. So the mirror is pointless anyway.

  • amysummer

    This will be mine. I don’t think that one can have too much blush or Benefit blushes for that matter.

    Random question: how does it smell? I adore Coralista in part because of the wonderful smell. Bella Bamba smells fabulous too.

    Thanks for being so awesome Muse 🙂

  • Lucy

    Muse- I just wanted to let you know that I do get stupid excited about makeup launches, especially a new Benefit boxed powder! Thanks for that swatch. I already like it!

  • Jenn

    Puuurty…I saw Christine’s swatches on temptalia also. You’re helps me a bit more though as your skin tone is a bit more on the fair side, like mine! 🙂 Might get this since I saw the naked 2 swatches and don’t feel like I *need* it right away, bit similar to the first one.

  • Windflowermelody

    Thank you so much for the swatch- it’s gorgeous! And the packaging looks just beautiful. I’ll definitely have to try to snag my own little box of gloriousness during the upcoming one day sale- hopefully I’ll be able to get one before they sell out! :o)

  • Maria

    *sighs* Definitely too light and blue-tinged for my tan skin. Oh well, that just means one more reason to go get Bella Bamba! I’m pretty sure that one would look nice on me. ^_^ Don’t you just love my justifications for buying more make up? Hehehehe!

  • kiwikiwidragon

    Looking forward to this and all it’s glory!! I think I am going to haul that Nars palette too…..bad, so very, very bad……

  • Anna

    They keep moving up the release date huh? haha perfect holiday timing I suppose

  • Boone

    For anyone who can’t wait for the flash sale on Monday, HSN has about 1000 in stock RIGHT NOW. Price $28 (on two flex-plays).

  • sophia

    It’s sooo pretty!! I want it right now..! 🙂 Is this why they discontinued Thrrrob then?
