I thought that Georgia was my fave...until I tried this! Bella Bamba is the prettiest pink blush I have ever used! It also comes in a really cute, sparkly box that I just had to show my friends. This (along with Georgie, Dandilion, Dallas and Coralista) will be a permanant fixture in my makeup case. Thank you, Benefit!
Loved that it's shimmery, flattering

First of all, I want to say that this peach powder is my favorite of all the boxed powders. I am so glad that it was made available again.
My only complaint is with the print on the box itself. It used to be a softer peach color and more bohemian. Now, the peach color on the box has been changed to neon orange with a highly contrasting & gaudy/ugly black band around the edge. It's discusting.
It hurt my eyes to have to look at it. I am tempted to depot it.
Loved that it's not pink

my skin color is fairly light so im pale but not white white. is this bronzer good for like winter time and mainly is it over all face or contour

i need to no if its overall face and does it make me look orange !!!
I have light skin, and this doesn't look orange or "dirt" brown...it's very natural. It's also sheer, so don't be intimidated when you see the actual palette...it looks super dark!! But, it's not. It's just very compressed in the compact. It is matte, but it does not look chalky at all. This is because it is very finely milled- the particles are extremely minute. It gives the appearance of putting a sheer, matte, bronze gel on the skin. It really melds with your complection. You can apply this where the sun naturally hits, and it will not look like you are wearing makeup.

I've tried dozens...this is the most natural and convincing bronzer I've ever used.

what is the difference between Coralista and Bella Bamba?

Just want to know the difference.
Coralista is a pinky peach blush with a light shimmer. It's more on the peach side, with a touch of pink. I have found that it's great if you have readness on your face...it's quite balancing. It's lighter and more sheer than Bella Bamba. Coralista is more of a neutral shade that could coordinate with cool or warm tones.

Bella Bamba is a true pink with a light shimmer. There are no peach tones. And, it's quite vivid, and slightly sheer. This is a cool shade, without warm/golden tones.

does this blush look good on dark skins?

i've been using dallas as a blush for years now and it looks great. wanted a bit of a change and was wondering if bella mamba would have the 3d effect as much on darker skins.
I have light skin, but I also use Dallas. From what I can tell, Bella Bamba has as much depth as dallas, it's just a different shade. This is a strongly tinted, pink blush with an ultra fine shimmer. If you have dark skin, you should get a beautiful, baby pink blush with a opalescent finish. Good luck!
