Benefit Fine One One

Hello! If you follow me on Twitter, you may have read that a couple of weeks ago I attended a meet up in Bristol and we all received a lovely goody bag! In each goody bag was a full size Benefit Fine One One which I was so excited to try. I was actually planning on buying this about a week before the event but didn't get chance, and I'm very glad! 


The packaging is perfect! I absolutely adore rose gold and this is just beautiful! It's almost slightly mirrored as well which is really pretty. Even if the product was rubbish, I would still love it because of the packaging! Haha but lucky I love the product too. There is a little twist at the bottom to twist the product up and down so it's really easy to use.


The products itself looks just as gorgeous as the packaging! There is a small pale pink shade on the left which is a highlight, a pink shade in the middle and an orange/coral shade on the right. This can be used on the cheeks and lips which is handy! Personally though, I haven't used this as a lip colour because the colours aren't ones I would normally wear on my lips so it doesn't appeal to me for that.

For cheeks though, I just sweep it up from the apples of my cheeks towards my temples with the highlight shade on my cheekbone and coral/contour shade in the hollows of my cheeks.


The colours are pigmented enough that I only have to sweep this over my cheeks once or twice, however they still manage to be slightly sheer so I don't end up looking like a clown! They are all incredibly easy to blend as well which is makes this very easy and enjoyable to use.


When I blend the colours, I don't mix them all together completely. Hopefully you can see on the photos above, the highlight is still mainly at the top and the coral contour shade is still on the bottom, there are just no harsh lines between each shade! I lightly dab at them so they flow from one shade to the next.

This lasts all day on my cheeks as well! At the end of the day it is all still in place and the colour is still just as pigmented. I do spray a setting spray all over my face but I don't powder my cheeks.

I absolutely love this product and the colours are gorgeous! I especially think this will be perfect for the Summer time. If you have seen my Stila Convertible Colour review, you will know that I have started using cream blushes recently and this is an amazing one now added to my collection!

Have you tried this yet?

This is available here for £23.50! I think that is a pretty good price when you consider it's a highlight, blush and contour in one!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day :)

  4. I love this and I use it all the time on my cheeks! One problem I have with this though is when I put it on my lips they just started peeling like crazy! It was really painful and I'd never use it on my lips again! :) Great review!

    1. Oh my gosh! That's weird! I definitely won't be using this on my lips then because they get very dry anyway. Thank you and I'm glad you love it as a blush :) xx

  6. I've been so intrigued by this product but I've used something similar before & found that as I swiped it across my cheeks it took my foundation with it :/ did you find that was a problem at all?

    Lovely review :)

    1. Nope, not at all :) I understand what you mean because I've had a cream blush that has done that before but this one doesn't at all! :) xx

  8. Lovely review! I bought this recently after testing it at the Fake Up event in Newcastle. Been testing it out before I do my review :) I love how easy it is to contour with it, something i've never been able to do before!

  11. I love Fine One One! The packaging's gorgeous, isn't it? It actually goes on lips a lot more subtle than on your cheeks so you should try it one day and see what you think :) I've had it mixed with Benefit's Coralista lipgloss a few times too and it looked really good on.

    1. Ahh the packaging is amazing! I may give it a go but it doesn't appeal to me that much! I may mix it with a lip balm or a gloss like you did :) Thank you x

  13. I'm not a massive fan of this, I think it'll look way to pink for my pale skin and I don't actually like the fact it's a 3 in one :( as usual though a great review!

    1. I know what you mean! Haha you can't really get much paler than my skin so I would definitely recommend giving it a go and asking them to apply some for you at the counter! The coral really tones down the pink :) Thank you lovely xx

  20. Arghhh this was such a great review! -_-
    The displeased face is because now I'm tempted to get one. I like how they blend together and it'd be perfect for on the go. And 10 blogger points for you for photographing it before using it ;) That's a serious test of self control!
