NEW Cheekleaders from Benefit

Benefit has just launched two new Cheekleaders palettes that have a sneak preview of products that will launch later this year.

The Cheekleaders Pink Squad is a 5-in-1 Blush, Bronze and Highlight Palette, and the Bronze Squad is a 5-in-1 Highlight, Contour and Bronze Palette.

As ever, the packaging is super-cute, and there are handy tutorials in the boxes, which also have decent-sized mirrors inside. And both palettes include new products that will be launched later this year.

The Cheekleaders Bronze Squad is a Highlight, Contour and Bronze Palette, and includes five full-size products, including new Cookie highlighter, which will launch in September, and Hoola Caramel matte bronzer which will launch in April.

Cookie is a golden-pearl highlighter with a high-payoff luminosity, and Hoola Caramel is a lovely matte bronzer. The other products in the palette are Gold Rush, Hoola and Coralista. The palette also includes a brush.

The Cheekleaders Pink Squad is a Blush, Bronze and Highlight Palette, and, again, includes five full size products. The new kid on the block here is Tickle, a golden-pink highlighter that will give you super luminosity. Tickle will be available in September this year – buying this palette is the only way to get it now.

The other products in this pink palette are GALifornia, Hoola, Dandelion and Dallas.

Both of the new Cheekleaders are such good value – the products included are worth £130, and the palettes are just £52 each.

There are also two smaller Cheekleaders Mini Squads available, prices at £26. The Pink Squad includes GALifornia, Dandelion, and Tickle, and the Bronze Squad includes Hoola, Gold Rush, and Cookie.

If you are a fan of the Benefit blushes and powders, then these are brilliant buys. I do think the products are a bit overpriced individually, but the palette is great value, and a bit of fun.

All the palettes are available now at Benefit locations, and benefitcosmetics.co.uk
