Benefit Dandelion Blusher Review

Benefit Dandelion Blusher Review
Benefit Dandelion Blusher Review
For those familiar to Orange is the new black you's might find the name of this Benefit product 'dandelion' a little bit amusing like I did. Anyways, I noticed recently after last months Birchbox here that I had enough Birchbox points to purchase a product over £20. So I decided to try another Benefit product out this being the powder/blusher.

I only payed £3 for this little gem and the other £20 was used with my points, but was the £3 worth it? I am not entirely convinced. I am still unsure what this product actually is, is it a face powder or a blusher? I am really unsure. I can only give you my review on what I have been using it for and that is a blush.

The packaging is incredibly pretty, probably the nicest Benefit one I own so far. I like how compact everything is and how it came with a little brush which I find really beneficial! which is odd because I never really use brushes that come with products it is very rare. I also like how it comes with a little mirror so its handy to carry around to touch up with.

Now onto the most important part how I got on with the product itself. I am really unsure what this is I have heard its a face powder but to be honest if I swept this across my face I'd look like the pink panther so I guess it depends on your skintype. I am quite fair so I settled with this being a perfect blusher. I tend to mix this blusher with my NARS orgasm one because its just too light on my skin. It does look lovely swept over NARS blush it almost highlights the area which is great!

I am totally blown away by this product though, its actually been sat at the back of my drawer 'forgotten' about recently. It isn't my to go to product unfortunately. I may need to research how people wear this product because it seems a shame to keep such an amazing packaged product locked at the back of my drawer!


Pros:

Appealing packaging
Pretty colour
Very compact
Versatile

Cons:
Confusing on what it actually is
Expensive
Not sure its worth the money

I think I will have to research into how people wear this product and maybe give it another try! I don't want to see this locked in a drawer unwanted.


Have you tried this product out?

  1. I got this in a Benefit tin for Christmas & I agree I'm not sure what it is. It came mixed with another blusher so I'm assuming it's kind of a "wear with another blusher" kind of thing, which is quite strange.

  2. I haven't tried Dandelion, but I always thought this was an 'illuminating blush' so it was like a blusher, with a sheen to it for cheekbones : / I guess you should wear it whatever ways works best for you!

  4. They have actually discontinued dandelion as I went to a benefit counter to buy it! It doesn't really seem like I'm missing out on much unfornatuely it seems like it's too light for a blush and too pink for a powder!:)xx

  5. I hate when it's hard to tell what a product is haha! It's pretty packaging definitely. Maybe it's like, where you can use a light blush across your forehead and cheeks to give you a glow, you use this instead?

    1. It is such a stress but I just use it for whatever haha. Yeah something along those lines its definitely a very light blush but does give a tiny highlight too!

  6. The Benefit brushes are really good for contouring (if your into that stuff, I always struggle to find good brushes when I want to do contouring!). I think it would be a bit too pink for a face powder and a bit too skin toned for a blush if you get me!? But the packing is nice :-)

  8. I always thought this was a blusher, I can't imagine it as a face powder because it's so pink!

  9. I always saw this as a highlighter but I am confused as to what it is as well which is why I never picked it up! I do though because of how pretty it is, and how nice the packaging is but I am still not convinced I need this in my life! Thank you for sharing your link on Twitter! Following you on Bloglovin!
