Blushed : Review of Dandelion blush by Benefit

November 30, 2012

Dandelion is the main reason why I bought this Benefit kit. I’ve heard so many good things about it and seen it everywhere. Every time I would step into Sephora, it would scream my name… Seriously.

I’m not going to waste my time and yours trying to describe how this product blends wonderfully on the cheeks as there are tons of reviews about it on the net. Everyone included it in their favorites and described it as the best blush in the market.

At first, I thought it would appear chalky on my medium skin, but it didn’t. It appeared rather sheer leaving a sheen to my cheeks. It’s very subtle, hardly any color showed up because the pink in it easily blended into my skin giving it a healthy flush.

Did it last all day you ask? Hell no! The little amount of noticeable color became unnoticeable after 7 hours, maybe. What was left on my cheeks? Shimmer!

How does it work best? With a pigmented blush under it. Before applying it, I like to apply Pinch O’ Peach first. These two make a lovely combo!

With flash: Blended; swatch

Would I repurchase this? Maybe… I love the effect that it gives. But what bugs me the most is its lasting power. I wouldn’t say that it’s a must have, but there will always be room for a subtle blush in a makeup collection 😉 

If you like overpowering blushes, then you’re going in the wrong direction… We can all agree that Dandelion is definitely not made for you. However, if you prefer just a sheen, then this blush is perfect for everyday.

Have you tried this blush? How do you enjoy applying it? Leave a comment below!

      I’m sure you can find a cheaper version of it in drugstores.. You just have to compare swatches 😉
