Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box O' Blushes

Benefit Cosmetics Cheeky Sweet Spot Box O' Blushes
For the Holiday 2014 season, for the very first time Benefit has put together multiple best-selling powders in a set. The Benefit Cosmetics Cheeky Sweet Spot Box O' Blushes contains 5 blushes, 1 bronzer, a highlighter (Watt's Up) and a small brush. This is one of the most wow-worthy gifts you could receive this year, I think it's a collection of powders that flatters all ages and skin tones!

The tin packaging is re-usable and absolutely beautiful! Benefit always does an amazing job on their packaging but I think even though this box can be construed as being bulky, you can always depot the blushes and keep little trinkets like jewelry or nail polish inside the keepsake Christmas box!

I have always wanted to try some of their boxed blushes but I could never decide on a color so now I'm so happy to have the opportunity to try 6 of them for just $36! A full sized blush is 7-8g, whereas each of these blushes are as follows:
Dandelion: 4g
Sugarbomb: 6g
CORALista: 5g
Bella Bamba: 5g
Hoola (bronzer): 5g
Rockateur: 5g
Watt's Up! (highlighter): 1.5g

For a closer look at the Watt's Up! Highlighter, I took a swatch, you can see it's just a sheer brightness that can be applied as a blush topper or on the tops of your cheekbones/brow bones to reflect light for a beautiful glow. I don't love the blush provided, but this is a freebie as it's not even included in the Product Details, so no complaints here about it.

I have read on other blogs that the Coralista and Bella Bamba from this set are not identical to their permanent boxed blushes of the same name, again I can't complain because I don't own those and this is my first foray into Benefit's blushes. Supposedly these are much lighter shades in the Box o' Blushes, but again I can't complain because I am fair skinned so I usually have to be very careful with very brightly colored blushes (or else I look like Bozo the Clown).

Dandelion is a blue-based light pink shade. 
Bella Bamba is a shimmery watermelon color.
Sugarbomb consists of 4 complimenting, shimmer shades of peach, soft plum, pink and rose for radiance.
Hoola is a soft matte bronzer.
Coralista is a warm coral-pink shade.
Rockateur is a rose gold color.

The Benefit Cosmetics Cheeky Sweet Spot Box O' Blushes comes with a Tips & Tricks booklet which can teach you where to apply each boxed powder/blush as well as the Watt's Up! highlighter. This is a nice addition to those who are overwhelmed by the variety of choices in this gift set!

I'm really impressed with this set and it's the only blush set I'm picking up this year for the holiday season, if you can snag it on sale before it sells out, you should definitely jump on it (I picked it up during the 20% off VIB Sephora sale)! This set is impressive looking and great value for your money, I'm very satisfied with all of these shades for my complexion! 

I'd love to hear what you all think of this set if you've picked it up or if you're thinking about it in the comments below! :)
