benefit’s new blush is a nonstop trip to cloud 9.

by liza darwin

We might not be able to get good karma through our makeup (we far as we know, there's not a shortcut for being nice), but thanks to Benefit, it's never been easier to at least look the part of an angel.

The cosmetics company's new "Hervana" powder is a 4-in-1 blush with complementary berry shades that magically manage to flatter almost anyone. Packaged in a mini box complete with a mirror and slanted brush, it's subtle, pretty, and an instant pick-me-up, just like our other brand favorites Dandelion and Bella Bamba. This version, though, has an orchard blossom scent and rosy hue that makes it perfect for winter- a reincarnation of that perfect brisk pink your cheeks turn when you step outside.

It might be a while until we can actually achieve enlightenment or even fulfill our New Years Resolutions...but until then, why not fake it til you make it? We're definitely going to.
