Cute Blusher!

I adore this color! My first ever purchase from Benefit and the only blush I have ever hit pan on. Blush does has fragrance for sensitive users, but it is subtle and nice. Has fine shimmer in it but I still wear it for school/work and it looks just fine. I know Sephora discontinued this one, but the last time I was at Ulta, it was still there. Worth checking out if you're looking for some.

Love that it's: “fabulous!”

I absolutely adore this blush! I was very disappointed when I found out that Sephora and other stores that used to sell this blush was discontinuing it. I am Asian and naturally have tanned skin colour. I felt that this blush complimented my complexion and helped give "life" to my face. I truly wish that benefit brings it back to my local stores where it is more accessible. Please....?

This is such a pretty blush! I love how it looks on my skin, although being really pale, I just apply a little bit. I am loving this, so please don't go discontinuing my favorite products like the creaseless cream shadows, or some that was already discontinued, like the silky finish lipsticks, you rebel, etc. But anyway, this is the perfect blush for me.

Love that it's: “unique, glowy, healthy, sexy, natural”

Dear Benefit people, I just discovered today that one of my favorite blush is not available anymore. I didn'T notice before since I had enough from my last purchase and also because my local Sephora- and other counters- still had the demos displayed (otherwise, I would have noticed way before. This was the perfect blush for me and I wont feel the same without it. It's not even like i can find something similar, like we usually can do- Bella Bamba was UNIQUE. It's winderful shade and glow just made me feel at my best. What happened that you took it of the market?! Please, if anyone can tell me where to find one last box...LET ME KNOW!!!

Bella Bamba

SpoiltBlog
Location: Sydney NSW, Australia
Eyes: Gray
Skin tone: Light

Bella Bamba is a clever little blusher designed to brighten, sculpt and define cheekbones. This beautiful pop of colour brightens cheeks and makes the skin appear more vibrant and awake. Remember however that a little bit goes a long way and that applying too much can make you look like Barbie (in a bad way that is). The best way to describe the shade: a watermelon pink, and you will be surprised to know that the blush also smells like watermelon, in a subtle way. I love the pretty feminine packaging that looks lacy and pretty without looking too girly or overdone, and the brush and mirror are both too convenient when you are on the go. While some people like to use their blush as an eyeshadow, I would avoid doing so with Bella Bamba because the watermelon tones will make skin appear irritated. Benefit Cosmetics recommend dusting Bella Bamba all over your face for an all-over glow but being quite pigmented, I am going to stick to wearing it as a blusher.

After testing this product out, i had to buy it. It lasts for ages and stays on all day. Its pinkish in colour and has gold tones in it, to give a really healthy glow, makes my cheeks look highlighted. Everybody has been commenting on it! comes with a little brush too! Perfect for asian/indian skin tones.

This blush has a unique flattering colour

Tehila26
Location: Undisclosed

I love Benefit products for their fun packaging and quality. Bella Bamba is a great blush. The packaging is very cute, and the colour is really flattering. Bella Bamba has a subtle shimmer that is just perfect for the summer. I apply it after posietint or benetint, and I am ready to go for the day. All in all, I like my Bella Bamba very much.

Lovely and Fresh

Teeler
Location: Undisclosed
Eyes: Brown

I bought this and when I opened it thought, crikey that's pink and glittery but I shut up and gave it a go.. and once I applied it to my cheek bones it wasn't as pink or glittery as the first glace appeared.. and obviously depending on how heavy you apply it. but I don't normally do pink blushers but this was subtle and girly and I really love it.


Jun 13, 2013

the product is ok

CY1987

Overall the product is not too bad. But I have received this order in an small envelope not a package box. So when I receive the delivery this small box of powder has smashed and now I cant bring this with me to go out as the packaging is not a box anymore...

Pretty

fifi66
Location: Belfast, UK
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair

This is such a pretty colour that really perks up your cheeks. It looks very bright in the box but looks very natural as the colour is buildable. My one issue is that sometimes it doesn't go on very evenly.


Mar 19, 2013

Shimmery and buildable!

Mollie
Location: Undisclosed
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Olive
Love that it's: “buildable”

Bella bamba is a buildable blusher, it's a highly pigmented, bold glittery pink blush! The packaging is well matched for the blusher, as the blusher is a striking colour in the box. Its a slightly frightening colour to look at, as at first glance as I thought that I would have ended up looking like a tomato. However the colour is depended on how much you pack on, as it can be a subtle colour as well, which I really enjoy. This Blusher really suits my skin tone and looks quite natural on. The blusher on me lasted up to four hours until I had to re-apply it, so the blusher over all lasts quite a long time, I have had it for a year and it's still going strong!


Mar 3, 2013

I looked so healthy.

DanitheBeautyGuru
Location: NY
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Fair

I have extremely pale skin and at first I was very nervous that the color would be to clowny on my almost white face. I recieved a mini in a sexy little stowaway kit and decided to try it out. After I contoured I swirled and tapped and applied to my cheekbones and viola! I looked so healthy and not a bit like a clown. For my fair skin Bella Bamba looked like Mac's Stereo Rose. This is my go to blush and I will definetly be repurchasing.


Feb 21, 2013

I love it!!

Jas25
Location: Scotland, UK

Love that it's: “amazing, vibrent”

This is truly fabulous! I was advised this at the beauty counter as I was looking washed out, brittish winters for you! The colour is so vibrent and bright so I was excited to try it on. It looks brilliant! I no longer look washed out. You can build up the colour so it doesnt have to be shocking pink but it looks fabulous no matter how much you have on! The lady that was advising me also had it on and it looked totally different on her than it did to me, she had a darker complexion so it works for all skin tones. It is also very long lasting. I bought it mid December its now at the end of February and I have months left of use left in it! Brilliant product thank you Benefit!

Love that it's: “vibrant, matches”

This is not the sort of colour blush I would usually go for with my skin being light and my hair being blue but I must say this blusher compliments my skin and my hair! When the representative recommended this I thought no way but I'm so glad she talked me into it!!!

Must wear everyday

Hayleyjane90
Location: Brisbane QLD, Australia
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “shimmery, 3d, long-lasting, bright”

This is hands down my favourite product from any cosmetic store. Full stop. Ever. I will honestly never use anything else, and if it's discontinued I will become a hermit and cover all the mirrors in my house. It provides the most beautiful shimmer that highlights cheekbones. I am extremely pale but find I can apply as much or as little as I like depending on my mood or the occasion.

Beautiful blush that does not disappoint

KaDen
Location: Paris, Texas
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “fun, bright, beautiful, shimmery”

I was a little nervous to try Bella Bamba because I have always used very pale, very subtle blushes out of fear of looking like I just got a bad sunburn. Bella Bamba is my first ever bright-and-bold blush and I am extremely pleased with it! Right out of the gate, I noticed that it smelled so lovely, very soft and feminine. That's always a plus. I also loved the very soft shimmer that it has to it. When it came to the moment of truth (actually putting it on my face), I was amazed that it goes down much lighter if you use a light touch and you can very easily layer it up to the color you want. Don't be intimidated by how dark it looks - it's very easy to put it down as light or dark as you want and it would be great paired with a little bronzer for contouring. If you're looking for a matte blush, though, this is definitely not what you'd want because it does have a good amount of shimmer. It won't make you sparkle like a disco ball, but just imagine having a very soft kiss of fairy dust on your cheeks - that's what it's like! This, Sugarbomb, and Dandelion are my favorite blushes so far. Never touching another brand's blush ever again.

Wow! Very Pretty

CeeCeeRamone

I was amazed at how good this looks! Not that I was expecting any less from it, but after using mediocre cosmetics all my life, then discovering Benefit, my initial reaction to most of their products is "Wow, I never knew I could look this good!" Very pretty, natural color, it really brightens up your face, and smells great too!

Love that it's: “gorgeous, perfect, delicious”

I was sceptical and nervous when the lady at the benefit counter showed me this, i thought it was far too pink and thought i'd leave looking like a flamingo! Couldnt have been more impressed! i LOVE Bella Bamba!! It looks gorgeous on my olive skin tone and makes my cheeks look incredible! lasts so long and smells delicious.. i genuinely sometimes just get the box out of my bag to smell it :) definitely go buy this! it looks amazing, lasts for ages and because you only need a little bit, makes it feel like you're wearing nothing but looking incredible! Can't rate this more highly!

1.5 years and still a hefty amount left!

EWE7
Location: Wales
Eyes: Blue

This product is a perfect every day colour that can be thrown on without a second thought, but better still the smell is just divine and 1.5 years later I've still got so much of it left with no signs of getting bored of it either.

Oh my!

Katiuska
Location: Madrid, España
Eyes: Green

Love that it's: “lovely smell, a little goes a long way, shimmering, very good cheek sculptor”

As usual, whenever you launch something new, it never fails to catch my eye. That watermelon colour was what filled my eyes first. How bright it was also impresssed me. It smells delicious, asset no. 3. Mirror included, asset no. 4. And last, but not least, the fact that you need just a little bit of the product to enhance your cheekbones is another advantage. The ultra plush lip gloss that matches it is super. Both make a lovely duo. Excellent work!

Awesome Cheek Color!

BellaDolce
Location: Michigan, USA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Olive
Love that it's: “light, vibrant, minimalist”

This is another gift purchase from my sister. I love the great color for my olive skin. The light shimmer enhances my youthful skin texture even at 49 years old. I've been wearing this since December 2011 and it carries through all seasons. If she hadn't given this to me, I would have not tried blushes here. I am a diehard fan of the One Hot Minute rosy gold powder I bought here. Bella Bamba has become a new favorite of mine and the handy mirror helps when I travel with it.


Sep 28, 2012

MUST BUY!!!!! LOVE IT!

Love that it's: “builable, 3d, nice scent, shimmery”

Bella Bamba is honestly my first purchase from benfit. The lady at the counter recomended it and i fell in love instantly! I love that it is a buildable colour so you can use it as an every day blush or add another layer to give a more dramatic look for a night out. This blush has a great watermelon smell which was somthing common i read in the other reviews.

This blush is truly "the Bomb"!

FillyF

Love that it's: “pink”

Benefit is wonderful and once again they have created a perfect product. I have had so many compliments on this blush. I use it on my cheeks and everywhere else I would use a bronzer. I am one who has always felt I need foundation, but after using this blush, I simply use a bit of concealer and put this on and I look and feel great without putting on foundation! It makes my comlexion beautiful and it has great staying power, and for me, lasts all day.

Love this amazing product :D

xLeahx131

Love that it's: “brightening, cute packaging, 3-d, everything you expected, long-wearing, must have!”

I was at a bigger mall than I am usually at and I was dying to see the Sephora because I don't really go to that mall too often but everytime I do, there is never time to go in there and take a look. All of Benefits products are sooo cute and I come onto this website all the time dreaming about purchasing something from here lol. I tried Bella Bamba on in the store in the mirror and my friend and my mom thought I looked so much brighter and I was surprised my mom bought it for me. She said she wanted to use it too! Usually my mom wouldn't buy a blush that is this expensive (worth the price though but it is more of a high-end name brand - ya get what ya buy!) but she did and I was soo happy :) I used my fingers to apply it on my cheeks in the store actually and it worked well. I am not super fond of the brush in it even though it does the job nicely I prefer to use some brushes I already own. You don't need that much to brighten and accentuate your face because it delievers what was promised and expected. I will be wearing it the first day of school :).

I'm usually not a huge blush fan but this one is ahmazing! The gold shimmer is so pretty and the color would be gorgeous on any skin tone! It obviously smells good like all of the other boxed powers haha and the packaging is adorable. BUT don't use the brush...it's streaky and doesn't ble.d anything either. But with any other brush its easy to blend :)

A Bumpy Ride...

Stephie14
Location: Belfast, UK
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “allergic, bright”

I recently splashed out and purchased this and a new cleanser. I started using both simultaneously and I came out in painful lumps all over my cheeks. Some of these lumps turned into sports where as others were just enlarged bumps which would not go away no matter how hard I tried. First i stopped using the cleanser and it still didn't clear up so then i stopped using this blush and started reusing the cleanser and they cleared up within about two weeks. I think I must be allergic. Its a shame though as it is a gorgeous colour and was very expensive for a product I now cannot use.

Love that it's: “shimmery, pink, long-lasting”

I absolutely love this - I bought it after trying it on in a shop last year and I've still got a few month's worth in the box, so it's good value too! It suits my skin tone perfectly and makes my cheeks look really doll-like, plus it's lovely and shimmery but toned-down enough for every-day wear. I'll definitely be re-purchasing.

I worried that Bella Bamba would not be appropriate for me. I'm 45 and I like to be in style, but not look too trendy or juvenile. I really like the way it just gives me pretty cheeks!

Being pale I wondered if this might look a bit clownish but I feel it looks really pretty. The brush it comes with works wonderfully and I like the mirror in the box. I have had this for a few months and there is hardly a dent in the powder.

this blush has a really nice watermelon pink tone to it, which suits most skin tones.... trust me, i tested that! it is also very shimmery, so it doubles as a highlighter (not on paper) which gives your face an amazing illuminating glow. i would really recommend it... or at least test your friends! :) xxxxx

I have a number of Benefit blushes, but Bella Bamba is by far my favourite. It's a lovely shade of pink, but also has a glittery element to it so you can either put it on very lightly in order to create a subtle colour or put it on thickly for a fuller colour!

This was my first Benefit boxed blush. The moment I saw it, I know I'm gonna love it, and true enough. I love how it makes my cheeks look sculpted because of the shimmers. I also love the color, very pigmented, and the smell as well. An application lasts a day for me, which is nice since I always look fresh :)

I received this today and I already love it! I have fair skin and the colour looks great on. It is very pigmented and the brush that it comes with actually works very well. There are little gold sparkles in it; however, it is not too shimmery for daytime use. I put it on this morning and it's still looking fab at 9pm at night. Very happy!

Love that it's: “shimmery, gorgeous pink, sweet scented”

First impression, I absolutely love the smell! I feel a little giddy and always smiled every time I use this. The color description is true, a gorgeous watermelon pink. And I love the shimmer too! In terms of the 3D effect, it does make my cheeks a little more sculpted (what's not too love?). I almost always find myself layering Bella Bamba over my other pink blushes (for that 3D effect). Crazy I know, but I can't help it!

Love that it's: “ideal blush, nice texture”

This is an amazing blush. When having moisturizer on, it doesn't stick to your skin in weird places, and is the perfect day or night look. I would highly recommend it, and it is super quick and easy and has a cute packaging that is exciting to look at. Basically, it is all around awesome.

i did not think i could find a better blush than dandelion blush....and i was right.dont get me wrong i love the color it looks great but the one thing i cant seem to find is the 3D effect.its! worth buying as a backup blush but dandilion will always be the best blush!

Horrible.

Becca13
Location: Undisclosed
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

I bought this product because I was in need of a good blush, and the sales people at Sephora said I just "had to have it". This blush is the most horrible out of everything I have ever tried. The color is terrible on everyone that has tried it on, and it sticks in some places and turns out looking blotchy. Bottom line, DO NOT buy this product.

CiCi

I really do think that the color of this blush is gorgeous, and I do love the way that it looks on my skin! But, I didn't notice a difference in my cheeks when using it. I didn't really expect much of a difference because my cheek bones are already very high and very sculpted! So it might not be the products fault.

Love that it's: “amazing”

I tried this product when it first came out and immediately fell in love with it! It gives a shimmery pinkish coral blush without being glittery. Its "3D" effect accentuates the cheeks without a need for contouring which makes it really amazing.

Love that it's: “wow!”

So I was browsing through the benefit site the other day and saw this product. I read the description and the reviews and knew instantly that I had to get it (also coincidentally I was looking for a new blush anyways). After purchasing it and trying it on I have to say it was definitely worth the money! Your cheeks look shimmery but not in a bad way. It definitely makes your cheekbones look more 3D! Also it is just the right amount of pink so it still looks natural but gives your face more life than the Dandelion blush.

Can't Believe What a Difference This Makes!

Megolas
Location: Lincoln, NE
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “shimmery, beautiful color, accents cheekbones, brightens face, lovely glow, buildable”

I'm very fair-skinned, so I was apprehensive about trying this blush because I thought it would be too dark for me. But when I read all the rave reviews, I was just too curious and I couldn't resist buying it. I'm SO glad I did--I can't believe what a difference Bella Bamba makes! It may look like a very dark watermelon pink in the box, but this blush is very buildable: you can just sweep on a little for a natural look, or layer on more for a bolder, more dramatic look. It wasn't too dark for my fair skin at all, and the slight shimmery finish looks so lovely on my cheeks. What's most amazing its that it really does give you a gorgeous, glamorous 3D effect that draws attention to your cheekbones and makes them look more contoured. This is the only blush I've ever worn that actually does make an amazing difference in how my entire face looks. The results are so incredible that I would recommend this blush to just about anybody. The only thing I don't like about it is the brush it comes with. In my opinion, the brush it comes with is too wide for the precision application I like, so I use a blush brush with a longer handle and a smaller head instead.

This is the perfect pink blush, its absolute perfection in a box. 1 sweep gives you a light pink shimmer and 2 gives to a beautiful golden rosy glow. Hands down the best blush I have ever used. A little product goes a long way.

Beautiful colour

Babodpower
Location: Ireland
Eyes: Gray
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “popping colour”

I was a bit apprehensive about buying this as its such a strong pink colour,i have sugar bomb and coralista both of which i love,but i am very pale and i thought this would make me look like a clown but the lovely girl at my local Benefit counter applied it with a fan brush(as i am very heavy handed this was a revelation) and i loved it immediately,the new flip box is handy,even if there is less product. the only thing i find about it that i don't find with the other is that it tends to crumble more... theres always loose blush left in the box when i use it and i tend to blow it away,which is a waste of product,but thats my only complaint.Other than that i love it.

This is probably my new favorite blush shade. I normaly use 2-3 different blushes: cream, powder and one with shimmer to get the perfect look. The first time I used bella bamba, one sweep and I immediately fell in love with it. It works so well against my olive skin tone and finishes my look with the perfect amount of shimmer and pop.

Love that it's: “perfect pretty glow”

Bella Bamba is the perfect pink blush. Love the gold shimmer. I was afraid it would be to dark or bright. Looks more natural on my light skin. Compared to other blushes I have. I have other box o powders but they were either to light or to dark for my skin. By far this is my favorite one. Love the little brush. Easier to put on cheeks.

Prefer Other Box o'Powder

Tried this on the counter, but I'm sorry to say that I wasn't convinced because personally I think this blush is way too pink for my tan-olive Asian skin. But hey for those who are tan, daring and love cheeky strong pink flush on your cheeks go for it! For those who aren't risk taker like me - I would recommend natural blush like Coralista,Sugar Bomb,Dallas or Posietint for us!

I was looking for a pretty pink blush for winter and I found it. I am a huge benefit fan...and Bella Bamba is my favorite box o'powder. It leaves me with a really pretty glow that looks natural and fresh instead of others which left me looking as if I had put pink paint on my cheeks. Bottom line...LOVE IT!

I wasn't going to buy this, but one of the ladies who did my makeup convinced me, I'm so glad i did now! i was a bit scared by how bright it was. But on it looks a bit like Coralista, just with more of a lovely healthy sheen to it! and it smells lovely!!!

I recently saw reviews of this little box 'o powder on youtube. Since it won't be available in my home country till mid March, of coooooooooourse I had to order it! It arrived about an hour ago, all prettily wrapped up together with the latest magazine. What a shiny, deliciously smelling little something ... and the natural, glowy sheen it gives to ones cheeks, just like the natural blush a frosty winter walk can give you! Perrrrrfect! Am deliriously happy!

RedGK

Love that it's: “must have for all skin-tones, bene-licious”

I was initially afraid of this box o' powder, because I am fair, freckled and red haired. Watermelon pink is not usually my friend. I was concerned about the "shimmering" too, because too many times in my experience that's been a code word for GLITTER. Well, my fair, freckled friends, fear no longer! I am so happy I put aside my misgivings and gave this a try. The color reminded me of the rosy glow I'd get after being in the cold, and the shimmer is just magnificent. Not glittery at all, but more like a radiant sun-kissed glow. So pretty, and instantly addicting. The mirror in the box top is a nice addition, but what I love is the little brush it comes with. I usually throw away the brushes that come in the makeup package, but man, this thing is nicer than some of the regular brushes I have! This little package is definitely the real deal.

I wore it out to a club and even after dancing the night away and getting kinda hot and sweaty I came out of the club with my makeup still looking gorgeous. I already have Dallas which I love, and my boyfriend recently got this for me as a birthday gift. It is a definitely a must-have product.

I LOVE LOVE Bella Bamba ! It's my favorite box ! I love the color. It looks fabulous on all shaes. It also smells good ! :) I also love that it has a mirror inside the box. Its a great buy.

I'm an absolute fanatic when it comes to the box-o-powders and Bella Bamba does not cease to disappoint. It's the purrfect hint of rosy cheeks for the winter months. I recommend using as a blush over your foundation and dandelion for a dewy, clean affect. Viola!

HOLY BAMBINO

mjkennedy
Location: Los Angeles , CA
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light

Benefit knows exactly how to make girls happy. We love when things smell, look, and work well. And this blush does it all. I'm absolutely obsessed. First off i love the new round brush, I never use the square brushes in my other boxed blushes but the new one is great. It is the perfect size and shape to sweep quickly across the cheeks then BAM I'm set. Next, the smell is to die for, it reminds me of being a little kid cause it smells like candy :) . The color itself is breath taking on all skin colors. I have fair skin and it pops beautifully. I have gotten so many compliments already and was told that it was the perfect color as if i was blushing naturally. I have used it on my clients who have dark and tan skin and it warms up with their skin wonderfully and the color pops just as much on them as on my light skin. I would say Bella Bamba, Dallas, and Hoola are really the best blushes from Benefit for people who have any kind of tan at all. Everyone needs to add this blush to their make-up regimen.

szhelianne

Love that it's: “luminous”

I keep saying this, but there are not enough high quality true pink blushes out there. Bella Bamba came through shining just when I almost gave up hope. The shade is a beautiful neutral pink with a delicate shimmer that is most definitely not sparkly or glittery, but rather highlights and gives you a gorgeous luminous flush and sheen. The light refreshing scent is delicious as well. I've gotten compliments just about every single day that I've worn this so far. Well done, Benefit! Looking forward to 2011 and new blushes from you.

Bella Bamba is AMAZING! I love all of their box o'powders, but this one is definitely my new favorite. It's a beautiful pink/watermelon color and I think it would look good on any skin tone. It gives you a perfect color and a really healthy glow. You could easily dress this up or down and look beautiful! :)

I was a NARS blush girl, and kept resisting buying blushes like Coralista from Benefit until I used up my other blush. Then when I got the email earlier this week about the new BELLA BAMBA I was intrigued. I happened to be going into my local Benefit boutique for a brow sesh later that day, and sure enough I tacked this on to my order...and I LOVE IT. I'm a convert. Love the flip lid with mirror, and the color is perfect. I'm half Italian so my skin has olive undertones, and the pinky coral with shimmer really highlights my high cheekbones and gives me a lovely glow! Get bella girls!!!

I won the daily sweepstakes and i got my early christmas gift from benefit... it was a happy day... because this may be the best box o powder, yet.. for my skin tone anyways,... i like the coralista (which i think has more peach and shimmer than this one) but this one is just right for me. i am asian, with medium/slightly tan skin w/ golden undertone.. and i wear this everyday now. it gives me a glow and perfect for dressing up or down when i want to go natural. overall, i am in love!
