The Hervana Boxed Powder from Benefit is one of the best ones i have tried. The packaging suits the blush perfectly, and the included brush is incredibly high quality. It can be used as a highlighter, giving a natural, sheer glow from the lighter colours, or as a full, opaque, blush giving a beautiful colour to the cheeks.

Gorgeous glow to the complexion!
If you love Benefit Box’O’Powders then you will absolutely love Benefit Hervana, which is a beautiful and blissful highlighter that could be used to compliment shades such as Dandelion blusher and Hoola bronzer to emphasise the cheekbones and give a gorgeous glow.
Benefit Hervana is a ‘Good Karma’ Face Powder, which delivers a lovely sheer silky soft glow without appearing too frosty due to the four heavenly shades: lucky shell (pale beige), divine peach (soft peach), heavenly rose (baby pink) and berry delight (stonewashed plum), which form a swirl within the box‘o’powder. The intensity of the shades apply on the complexion relatively sheer as the powder is extremely finely milled, so bear in mind that Benefit Hervana is a highlighting product and not a colour product.
The application of the gorgeous pearlescent shimmery effect is quite versatile as you could apply it by gently sweeping down the nose bridge, across the forehead, on your chin and even below your brow bone. Benefit Hervana is the ultimate highlighter powder, which has a beautiful lasting effect to ensure the complexion looks lovely from day to night.
Benefit Hervana is also useful and convenient to store in your travel bag or handbag as it contains an in-built mirror and soft blush brush. If you are looking for a highlighting powder rather than liquid highlighters, than I highly recommend Benefit Hervana as it is a versatile powder and adds just enough glow to make you feel gorgeous naturally!

Box O' Love
I never realised how much of a sucker I am for packaging until I came across Benefit. And their blushes are no exception. Each blush comes in its own study cardboard box with an attached pull up lid and perfectly fitting brush.
The powder itself is a swirl of 4 colours (lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose and berry delight) which combined is designed to give you a flush look. The powder like all Benefit blushes has a very lovely sweet smell, which is not at all overbearing. The orchid-blossom colour combo is ideal for lighter skin tones as it is quite subtle. After my first application I found this to be a little too subtle, but after a couple of days use I now feel this is the perfect everyday tone for a little cheek flush. It is also quite buildable for anyone wanting a little more colour.
Like most Benefit products the formula is spot on. The powder is smooth and easy to apply, with no chalky feeling. I have also found the staying power to be quite good, although as it looks quite natural it can be a little hard to tell. The included brush will be either loved or loathed, and now that I have learnt how to use the angled bristles I feel this is the perfect tool for the job.
Is it worth the price? In my opinion, without a doubt. The quality is what you expect from Benefit and there is more than enough to last many applications. The brush is also a winner. The colour will most likely be a little to fair for darker skin tone, but with a number of boxes in the range there is a perfect blush for everyone.

I love this blush! The packaging instantly drew me and also the smell of the blush is so good! It's a really great blush for my pale skin and can be a really pretty light pink/peach glow or I can build it up and it can become a peachy pigmented blush. The price is a little off putting but I feel like the product is worth it!

I have to admit - it was the adorable packaging on this blush that initially drew me in and 'made' me buy it. The colours are just so pretty and give you an amazing flush when you swirl your blush in them. I really like the packaging because it is surprisingly practical, even though it does take up quite a bit of space if you are travelling.

I love this blush because it smells amazing. The colour is not really out there and it's great for natural looks. It just gives a nice pink glow that's not overpowering.

It has a godly affect!
Gives the absolutely best subtle glow of a mixture of pinks, it's amazing. The silky texture and colour lasts all day and the packaging looks so beautiful. The colour can be built up so you can have more of a pigmented look. It also smells incredibly nice.

Perfect for lighter skin tones
I really enjoy using this blush. It smells like lollies :) The new boxes are perfect for travel, too, as the lid bends back as opposed to coming off completely.
I think this blush is a great mix of tones and on my ivory skin comes out like a bubblegum pink, and blended out looks really pretty. The quality of the brush is what I expect from Benefit, soft and easy to use - it's slanted to good application.
Wear is great too, and such a lovely formula. Well worth the money.

benefit always has the cutest packaging and this one doesn't disappoint! aside from that, the powder itself gives a nice pink cheeky glow but was probably a bit too pink for my pale skin (or maybe it was the way it was applied...). nevertheless, a little goes a long way and if applied properly, really makes the cheek bones stand out!

Not gonna lie, when I first purchased Hervana I was really disappointed at how sheer it was. It felt like I was sitting there for 10 minutes, trying to build the colour up on my face. In spite of the opacity of this product (or lackthereof), it's a really stunning colour. It's hard to explain, it's not quite pink, it's not quite nude, and it's not quite coral. It's just this fantastic inbetween shade that seems to go with everything! It also seems to glow without having real noticeable shimmer.
I find Hervana works fantastically not only for a natural look, but also as a nude cheek with a heavy smokey eye, and a no-brainer cheek colour with a crazy neon lip. For those who struggle to find a blush to go with red lipstick, I'd recommend Hervana!
