Benefit Dandelion Blush and Luminizer Powder - Benefit Dandelion Swatches and Review

Benefit Dandelion Review - Benefit Dandelion Blush

Benefit Dandelion Blush (Brightening Powder)

Two weeks ago, I took an important exam which gets me closer to my attorney license.  The actual test was over in two hours, but the whole experience of traveling, getting a hotel room, driving to the test center, and signing in took approximately a whole weekend.  When my fiance and I got back it felt as if we’ve done a cross country excursion - it was “that” kind of a test.  Because I studied for days previously, we decided to go for a relaxing shopping trip and (surprise, surprise) I ended up purchasing the Benefit Dandelion blush from Sephora (my fiance especially loved the Dandelion flushed look).

Benefit includes a brush that is quite helpful (although a bit rough) - this brush is handy when traveling or need a quick re-application

Miranda’s Notes: 

Pros: With summer approaching in DC, the weather will be getting very swamp-like - and that’s clearly not the ideal situation for wearing makeup.  Every time I walk around the city in ridiculously hot weather with the sun burning down, I think of the Indiana Jones scene with the melting face - ahhh, DC summers.  Because the melty-face is not the look I’m going for, I picked up the demure and delicate Benefit Dandelion blush.  Benefit powders are finely milled and apply lightly - while there may be some fallout in the pan and on the brush, Benefit Dandelion blends smooth and easy. Because of the texture, this powder lasts for the day but the color does tend to fade. The Dandelion color is not matte and it’s not glittery either - there is just the perfect amount of rose gold shimmer that gives off a lovely glow. The color is a combination of complex mauves and pinks - if you’re looking for a natural, glowing complexion, this Benefit Dandelion powder is the perfect fit.

Cons: I have fair skin and the color is visible in just two applications, but because of the fine texture, the Benefit Dandelion blush may not as bright on everyone.  In fact, Benefit advertises this as a brightening face powder, but for me, Dandelion is too pigmented to apply as powder.  This particular product includes parabens so I recommend checking the ingredients if you have sensitive skin.

Grade: 5/5

    OMG you make it look so beautiful! I used to have this-it was actually one of my first blushes but it didn’t look nearly as good on me because of my darker skin tone. It looks like it was MADE for you!! 😀

    This is such a pretty shade! As a fair skinned girl myself, this looks like the perfect everyday color. About how long does it last on you? I’ve never owned benefit blushes so I don’t know anything about their wear time.

    Thanks for sharing!

    This looks so pretty on you :) I had this blush a good few years back and never re-purchased. Not sure why as I loved it… Probably got my head turned by all the other benefit blushers!!
    Going to reignite my relationship with this one now though :)
