Add sunshine to your skin with Benefit's new blusher
Want a blusher that's the perfect blend of pink and gold tones and can also double up as a highlighter? Benefit's Galifornia ticks all the boxes

Benefit has launched a new blusher dubbed Galifornia and with its sunkissed effect, artwork on the packaging and gorgeous, sun-embossed design, it was pretty obvious this was inspired by the original Surfer Girl from the sunshine state. The blush is a blend of bright pink and shimmering gold and is even scented with the brand's signature Galifirnia Dreamin' scent which has notes of pink grapefruit and vanilla. Like all its box blushers, this comes with a custom, rounded blush brush for soft, diffused application. Or use your own pro blush brush for even more seamless blending.

As to how to get the best result from this blusher? Apply the pink tone on the apples of your cheeks for a healthy flush. If you want subtle illumination, use the brush to pick up more of the golden tone and apply it on your temples and nose bridge for that just-hit-the sun glow. Want more obvious blusher? Layer on more pink for a deeper intensity. For the ultimate no-fuss look, Benefit recommends pairing this blusher with a swipe of Posiebalm on the lips and a flower crown on your hair.
