Product Review: Benefit's Fine-One-One

If you saw my Spring must haves post, you already know that I was dying to have Benefit's new lip/cheek product, Fine-One-One. Not being in the States, I wasn't sure if I could find it. But low and behold, I found this pup at Sephora. I had no idea that Benefit was sold worldwide! You can only image my excitement!

The packaging on this product gets an A++ from me. It's seriously gorgeous! I love how it kind of has a 1920's feel to it. Benefit did an outstanding job with the rose gold color. It's so "in" right now!

 Fine-One-One has two blush (or lip color) shades and one highlighting shade. Benefit describes it as  "sheer brightening color for cheeks & lips." I think they nailed the description spot on! The bottom shade is quite orange, the middle is a very coraly-pink, and the highlighter is a shimmery white/pink shade. The color combo goes so incredibly well together. 
To use, hold the product upright with the orange shade at the bottom cheek bone, the highlighter at the top. Glide across your cheek, then blend together with your fingers.

After gliding the product on, it looks like the image on the left. You'll have three stripes of color, but once blended, it becomes a super natural looking flush of color. Fine-One-One is very soft and almost velvety, so blending is no problem. If you want a more pigmented outcome, I suggest going over your cheeks twice. Also, I am wearing no foundation, so what you see on the right is nothing but Fine-One-One. In person, it's about a shade darker than it is in the photo, but still very natural looking.
I am in such love with Fine-One-One! It is definitely something that I will be using quite often. It is a tad bit pricey, but that is to be expected from the brand. All in all, yes, I do suggest buying this product! Personally, I will be using it a lot, so I will definitely be getting my money's worth. If you're interested, you can get your own here or here. I definitely suggest doing so!
