Benefit Bella Bamba Ultra Plush Lip Gloss

At Beauty Bible Towers (OK, it’s a Georgian house by the sea), we occasionally have what we call ‘Bella Bamba moments’.  We’ll say to one another ‘Bella Bamba’ – and that person knows that they’re looking a little peaky.  And just what to do… The original Benefit Bella Bamba is a truly miraculous blusher:  you can be as drab/grey/hungover/flu-stricken/short of sleep as anything.  Swirl a big, fat, fluffy brush in this lightly shimmering pink powder, fluff onto cheeks and hey, presto!  Alive again.  There are other shades but it’s Bella Bamba that’s our beauty equivalent of the loaves and the fishes.

So now, Benefit has launched a collection of lip glosses – Ultra Plush – to complement their face-waking blushers.  Not surprisingly, Bella Bamba is our instant fave, doing for lips what its blushing sister does for cheeks:  a slick of this luscious, non-gummy gloss (more like a rich, tinted balm) is all it takes for instant pretty.

Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Bella Bamba is a sheer, watermelon/raspberry pink – like lips.  Rather, like you want your lips to look.

When you’re feeling drab/grey/hungover/flu-stricken/short of sleep.

(And yes, it happens to us, too.)
