Questions & Answers for Benefit Cosmetics Bella Bamba

Question
OK for fair, pale skin?
I'm a 59-yr. old with very fair, pale skin, blue eyes and light brown/ashy blonde hair. My skin has some yellowish undertones, but my cheeks also have some pink undertones. I prefer a very natural look (I'm also considering Benefit's Dandelion luminizer as a subtle blush) and tend to shy away from peachy tones, which can seem orangey on me. How would this product work for me or is there another you'd recommend? Thanks for your advice!

Hi, I am also very pale with blonde hair and blue eyes. If applied correctly, this blush is great. However, there can be room for error because if applied too much, this blush can get overpowering. If you are new to makeup or want something that requires less effort, you may want to consider a different blush. I love it though, I don't want to scare you away!

I think it would work for you. It's not as super intense as it looks. I find that if you sweep the brush or even just dab it into the product, then tap the brush against the lid you get a super subtle look with a great sheen on your cheeks. Then of course you can build it up as you go. Also if you end up putting too much on then just take a clean fluffy brush and sweep it over your cheeks (with no product on it) it helps tone it down.

I am also very fair, light eyes with ashy hair. If you are going for a natural look, this is a good option but you'll have to be very light on the application. It is a very bright blush, but when applied with a light hand gives a naturally flushed look. Another blush that I like from this line is the Coralista. It's much lighter than Bella Bamba, but much more on the Coral side.

Hi. A suggestion: Just to let you know, I haven't tried Bella Bamba due to it's bright-shimmery finish and soft-subtle is more to my taste. I'm 59 also with the same coloring with green eyes and have searched high and low for a great product like Dandelion with less shimmer and a tiny bit more pigment. Dior makes a compact blush that is two products in one case-one blush is matte and other is a complimentary soft shimmer. The blush is finely milled and very sheer. Good color-range (look at A Touch of Blush) though many of the choices work because they are so sheer and blend with no powdery-effect or chalkiness. The compact is sturdy and beautiful. Dior is luxury-priced, and I've winced at checkout only to be totally happy later.

i think you should go for a soft pink color. if you want a bold look then go for the benefit bella bamba blush it looks good on anyt skin color. Or if you want to go for a more natural look then try for the tarte amazonian clay 12 hour blush.

I'm very pale too, and I was also concerned that "Bella Bamba" would be too bright of a pink for me. Even though it looks like a deep, dark watermelon pink when it's in the box, the important thing to remember is that this blush is very buildable. You can just sweep on a little if you're very fair-skinned and it will still give your cheeks a glow that looks natural, or you can layer on more for a bolder, more dramatic look. Also, don't apply "Bella Bamba" with the brush that comes with it, because it's too wide for the precise application you'll need to put on just a little of it. It's better to use a good quality blush brush with a handle instead--my Bare Escentuals blush brush works great.

I thought you'd also like to know, I use Benefit's "Dandelion" blush too, and I love that for a more natural, everyday look. Still, if you want something that's slightly shimmery and will make your cheekbones look more contoured, there's no reason you can't make "Bella Bamba" work for you just as well as "Dandelion." I hope this helps! :)

Question
Level of shimmer/glitter
I loved the way Nars Orgasm looked on me color wise, only it took quite a lot of it to create the hue my olive skin needed. Once I acheived the shade I needed there was just so much of that shimmer! I've got larger pores and oily skin and unfortunately shimmer just made Orgasm (no matter how gorgeous and close to my natural manner of blushing) unwearable for me.

Does Bella Bamba have more or less shimmer? I've used Dallas for years, its a staple for me, but I really want more of a flushed look. I have black hair, dark brown eyes, and olive skin. Will this work better and will I be able to apply much less of it then I had to with Orgasm, minus all of that shimmer?

Like you, I also have very large pores. Bella Bamba does have some shimmer so, like Nars' Orgasm, you want to use it sparsely so your pores don't seem enlarged. However, the product is highly pigmented. So, unlike the Orgasm blush, you might not need to apply a lot to achieve the bright pink color on your cheeks. But, if you do find that the sparkle in Bella Bamba does augment the size of your pores, I suggest using Benifit's Cha Cha Tint, a mango colored cheek stain that will not make your pores seem larger, before applying Bella Bamba to your cheeks.

Bella Bamba definately has less shimmer than Nars Orgasm (Especially if you are using the Super Orgasm shade). I made the switch about a year ago from Nars blush to Benefit for the same reasons you mentioned. Bella Bamba is now a permanent staple in my make up bag and typically my go to blush.

One thing to keep in mind, is that Bella Bamba has slightly less coral shades in it- it's definately more on the pink side, but it will definately give you the flushed look you're going for, without having to apply a lot.

I guess I have pretty much your complexion but have not used Nars blush. But what I can tell you is that it does have bit of light gold-ish shimmer in it. I find it subtle and the champagne like shimmer is complementary to my skin tone. Also adds a nice depth to the over all effect. It's a pretty neat effect and fun playing with the intensity. Hope that helps.

Nope, this is an addition to Benefit's best selling Box of Powder line so it'll stick around. With a blush so great, it can't just go away! PS Sephora's website makes it easy to tell if something is limited edition, new, or exclusive-this info is right above the product name on the product page (see on the Bella Bamba page it says new above the name-it would say limited edition in that space if it was).

If you want a more subtle look I would stick to the NARS, the bella bamba is just slightly more noticable. Nars is a bit more on the coral side and bella is a tad more pink so depending on which color you prefer that may also help. Both are absolutely gorgeous so I don't think you will be disappointed in either. I notice that my Super Orgasm blush looks great at first but later in the day it isn't so much there anymore where as my bella bamba can be seen even when I am washing my face at night.

NARS might be your best bet since Bella Bamba has been discontinued. It depends on you skin tone, though- I think this blush is more complementary to medium and olive tones- I am light skinned and it just looks way too bright pink on me. It's like a watermelon pink and it made me look too red- like I had been out jogging or something.

I have used (and loved) both, but lately I've been obsessed with Bella Bamba. I like it because it has less shimmer, you need to apply less to get a flushed look, and it is very versatile. Use a little for a naturally flushed appearance, use a heavier hand and get a brighter fun look. .

BB is going to be a lot more pigmented therefore darker appearing on your cheek whereas dandelion is very pale and coralista is also lighter.

I love Benefit's boxed powders (bought Dandelion last summer) and I knew that I wanted something different come Spring. I was planning on buying Coralista but just noticed that Benefit made Bella Bamba, which also looks amazing. For someone who's tried both, which one would you suggest to purchase first? And what is the main difference between the two? My skin tone is fair, with blonde hair and blue/green eyes.

I have both shades and l love both shades! If you can't buy both then I would say go Bella Bamba. If you are conservative about blushes then go for Coralista. There is really no loser here, they are both great! For fair skins apply these blushes with a stippling blush to get the perfect amount of color.

Are you a bronzer girl? If you like a warmer look, do coralista, if not do bella bamba! You can use bronzer with bella bamba, but coralista is much warmer on its own.

I would totally choose Bella Bamba over Coralista!!!
It has a nice color on all of the skin tones I have seen it on too. Coralista is a little more harsh I think.
Plus Bella Bamba has a mirror inside and Coralista does not :)

Bella Bamba is a really dark pink, and so if you are light-skinned, I would'nt purchase. Coralista is a bit dark too, but goes on nice and blends in well after applying a finishing powder.

I have tried both the Coralista and the Bella Bamba. I would personally purchase the Bella Bamba over the Coralista, hands down. This product's color is much better and is just an overall wonderful product!!!

I've used both and Bella Bamba is my choice. Coralista is straight up coral. Great color, too. I didn't have much luck with it as it didn't really show up on my skin. Bella Bamba is a fantastic watermelon pink color & it's richly pigmented, so it will be noticeable on your skin. Both are shimmery. The only real difference is, do you prefer coral or pink?

i was actually deciding between those two also, but i chose to go with Bella Bamba and i do Not regret that decision, its a beautiful color. If you want to see how it looks on your skin, i recomend just going into Sephora and testing it out for yourself.
