I can only sigh in absolute happiness with Benefit’s Dandelion Blush. Being not much of a fan of reds, I love pink and peach blush shades the most. Pink shades look refreshing on the cheeks, berry shades give some romance and slight blush on the face, while peach shades give warmth, plus, these three shades that I like are all so feminine!
I was able to get my hands on Benefit’s Dandelion Blush ( thanks, Therese! ) , and boy, oh boy, I instantly fell in love with this blush. It’s satin in texture ( matte but not flat ), the pink shade of this blush is very light, which would work great with very fair skin tones ( just one sweep, and it would give her that very faint healthy rosy flush ), but as for me having medium skin, it quite worked well, too, bringing my cheeks to looking a little bit healthy again. Haha! If I could describe Benefit’s Dandelion, it would be – the most refreshing, natural shade of petal pink that brings a very healthy and beautiful color on the cheeks. For an overall complexion booster, this can also be applied all over the face as a perk-me-up. Pink does wonders for the complexion as well! Staying power’s pretty okay, too. It doesn’t fade of easily!
What I did not like about it…is that, the packaging’s not too sturdy. The blush is packaged just in a box ( made from paper ) , and no compact, whatsoever. Open the box, and voila, the blush is there already. I wish they came up with a sturdier and maybe plastic ( or whatever ) compact packaging. I would cry if this gets wet!
I’d totally recommend this for girls who just want a hint of color on their cheeks, not too much. A perfect blush for wedding makeup, I think!
