This boxed powder is a soft peach with a slight hint of a pink and golden shimmer. I originally thought this powder was supposed to be used as a blush, but it's more suited to be a highlighter. I have also seen people use it as an all over brightening powder.
The boxed powder comes with a flat brush and plastic covering. I don't use the brush, but I keep it with the case. The boxed powder also has a slight scent. I don't think it's too over powering, kinda sweet like flowers.
Bella Bamba is a bright medium pink with pale gold shimmers. I think this blush is nicely pigmented and the color can easily built to be more intense. If you blend it out, it makes a nice subtle glow.
A lot of people have said that it's a dupe for NARS Orgasm, but I think Bella Bamba is distinctively more pink than Orgasm. But this is a must have for your collection. The color lights up any complexion from dark to light.
Bella Bamba also has a slight fruity smell to it. A lot of people can smell it distinctively, but I think it's a very faint smell.
This powder is a highlighter/bronzer combo. The powder is split in half. The highlighter is a light, milky pink with a soft sheen but no real glitter particles. The bronzer is a similar texture with a peachy-bronze color.
This combo took me a while to get used to. It was a whole lot of trial and error. The highlighter is pretty simple, but the bronzer depending on how you use it can make your face look muddy.

This is prob one of the most hyped up boxed blushes next to Bella Bamba. I have to agree. I LOVE this blush. It's a soft coral-pink powder that gives you a natural shimmery flush.
This shade is fantastic for giving you a natural flush. It's a nice soft, natural glow with a touch of coral. The color is buildable, but you only need a couple of swipes. There is a slight shimmer, but it's nothing over the top like big chunks of glitter.
Like the other boxed powders, Coralista has a slight scent. It reminds me of peaches.
I have a love-hate relationship with Hoopla. Depending on what shade I am (winter or summer), it can look really good or it can make my face look really dirty.
Hoopla is a matte brown with hints of cool and warm undertones. It's highly pigmented and swatches true to the color. Hoopla is also finely milled and blends easily into the skin. The color can be used as an all over bronzer or also used to contour.
It has a pretty good lasting power. Downside is the box looks really gross and dusty with lots of use.
This boxed powder is made of four different shades in a circle design. The little swirls are so small that you can't really use them individually. I recommend swirling the colors together and sweeping it across the cheeks.
For this powder, Benefit decided to name each individual swirl. Divine peach is a warm peach with golden shimmers, Berry Delight is a pinky plum with a satiny finish, Heavenly Rose is a soft, dusky rose with a slight sheen, and Lucky Shell is a pale almost light pink beige with shimmer. When swirled together, its a warm pink with subtle peach undertones and a satiny shimmer-sheen.
The color is beautiful on all skin tones and the powder is super smooth. You can build the color up, but a little sweep gives you a slight flush. This boxed powder comes with a brush as well, but this one is a little different bc it's slanted.
Also, this powder has a pretty distinct smell. I feel more so than the other powders.
Overall Benefit boxed powders are a win! Each is unique in their own way. The only downside is the boxed feature. I don't like that the newer ones connect. It's hard to work with and also since they are cardboard, they get dirty easier.
