quick, call fine one one!

Nothing makes me rofl harder than a good Benefit Cosmetics pun. Okay, well apart from this from Tard The Grumpy Cat (I actually died earlier.) But I am still a huge fan of their cutesy little hilarious named products that they keep releasing year after year. I have to admit, when I got the invitation for this it had a big picture of the stick on it and my immediate thoughts were - okay, what the beejesus is that all about!? Like, it just looks so bizarre I think. Yet again pushing the boundaries and creating innovative products as Benefit seem to do so well that company after company then rush to follow, Fine One One is a cream blusher, in a stick form.

I know on immediate first glances it looks a little like a roll on deodorant (just me who thought that?) but it's actually so cute and dainty to hold. I actually like the rose gold shiny packaging, and it's got a little police style logo that encases the Fine One One type face on it. It clicks open, and then rolls up using the little roller slide thing at the bottom of the pack.

Now, what it is, is a double cream blusher and highlighter in one. So you swoop it on your cheeks, and then blend using either a blush or your fingers. It does come out a little stripey at first, but it's so easy to blend together. The highlighter adds this really subtle sheen touch to the skin and makes the corals and pinks glow on the cheeks for a fresh, dewy look. I don't have particularly oily cheeks so I find its fine on it's own, but if you have slightly more combi skin you might want to set yours with a similar shade of coral blush. And yes, I can report, it is perfect for paleys!

I'm gonna be honest, I was not expecting to love this as much as I do. I've worn it every day this week, and personally in my eyes its a winner. I think because it's so easy to dab onto cheeks, I find this much more of a go-to cheek product rather than my cream blushers in a pan. I never thought a product like this would make its way into my favourites but I think Fine One One has rushed to the scene of my blusher emergencies, and solved all my woes. Pow. I know it's somewhat of a glowing review, but I feel like i've fallen head over heels for Fine One One!

Fine One One retails at £23.50. What do you think of Fine One One? Too gimmicky for you or up your street? What do you think of the shades, and the way you apply it? Let me know!
Love, Zozo

  8. I cried with laughter at Tard (which he would of hated). This really jsut reminds me of a stick deodrant, I did image it bigger for some reason. Do I want to try this? No.

  9. I stopped into a Benefit store in West Hollywood to try this out, as I'm usually a massive die hard Benefit fan, and while I really liked it at the time, it did not last long, so watch out wearing it in Summer!

  11. I love your hair in this post so much - bit off topic but it had to be said! It looks so glossy! xxx

  12. Part of me is still undecided on this, it looks great on but I fear I'd fudge up the application and look all stripy!

    In other news, Grumpy Cat is awesome!

  16. This is the first review I've read where I've actually understood the punny name (a bit late on the uptake, as usual). This is definitely something I'd swatch in store if I saw it, because I really like the idea of the cream blusher in a stick. My Stila convertible color has seen more love in the past, but I honestly find it very tricky to apply. Love it when products take all of the stress out of the application process! x

  19. This looks really pretty, will have to swatch it when I am next in store! Is it easy to blend? It doesn't come out stripey (hope that makes sense haha)

  20. Oh I need to get this! It looks really good!

  21. i really dont like it from a makeup artist perspective a contour shade should never have any warm tones in it all all and that colour they use is practical red!
