Benefit Multitasking Cheek Brush Review

Benefit have made some major changes to their signature BOX O’ line-up, including reducing the amount of waste by using recycled cardboard and removing the plastic brushes that previously lived within each box. Now, the Benefit Multitasking Cheek Brush is here to apply any of the blushes, bronzers or highlighters in the line-up. Read on to hear my thoughts on the vastly-improved Benefit brush and how it’s the perfect solution if you like to carry makeup with you on the go…


The Most Important Thing About The Benefit Multitasking Cheek Brush Is…

Gone are the flat plastic brushes that used to come inside the Benefit BOX O’s, making way for the vegan Multitasking Brush that can be purchased separately to use across every shade of blush, bronzer or highlight. The Multitasking Cheek Brush is travel-friendly and perfectly sweeps powder over your skin, leaving behind a flawless airbrushed finish. The brush can also be used for liquid formulas, thanks to its fluffy but dense bristles.


How Does It Work?

Remove the cap and slide down the tube to fan the bristles into shape. Dip the brush into your Benefit powder, tapping the product into the bristles. Sweep over your cheeks and forehead – or all over your skin, depending on the powder product being used. The brush is the perfect shape to cover the apples of your cheeks, so I like to tap the brush there and then blend up towards my temples for a flush of colour.


What’s Special About The Design?

The Benefit Multitasking Brush comes in a retractable holder with a cap to maintain the bristles’ shape when not in use (and to keep the brush clean too). This is ideal for travel or if you’re like me and keep your makeup loose in your bag. The bristles are extremely soft and secure with little to no shedding. The brush itself has a tapered dome shape, perfect for blending powder.


You Will Love This If…

If you want a multi-use brush that is travel-friendly, you’ll love the Multitasking Cheek Brush. The soft bristles make applying any powder product quick and easy, helping to blend seamlessly with no harsh lines.


What Does It Feel Like?

The design is sleek and easy to hold. The super-soft bristles hug your skin for a luxurious feel.


How Do You Use The Product?

For more full-coverage pigment, swirl the Multitasking Cheek Brush into your powder and sweep over your skin. For more sheer, buildable coverage, tap the brush into your product and lightly buff over your skin. For blush, I recommend tapping the brush to your cheeks and sweeping upwards to blend. With bronzer, use the brush to the areas of the face that would naturally be sun-kissed, and then highlight the highest points.



The Benefit Multitasking Cheek Brush has been created to reduce waste as it’s designed to be used repeatedly in a variety of ways. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free.
