Benefit Dandelion Powder
Member Name: starfish2009
Advantages: Pretty and Sheer colour and lasts for ages
Disadvantages: Awkward packaging
Since being cornered by a Benefit sales women on a recent shopping trip, I have become a full Benefit convert. It had previously been the vintage style packaging with bright colours and pretty patterns that had attracted me but that was as far as I got.
It was the Dandelion face powder that was the biggest hit. Although descibed as an all over product I have found it is an ideal blusher. When used lightly it gives a flawless glow to your skin and can be built up to give a more intense colour, perfect for a night out.
It is described as 'ballerina pink' and gives a sheer colour with a hint of sparkle. I find that because of the shade it may be too much if brushed all over the face, but then again I prefer a more bronzed look. Dandelion works well without any additional makeup which is perfect for summer but works equally as well over foundation or bronzer.
It comes in a 10g, sage green box with a retro style, pink dandelion picture. Inside is an easy to use, rectangular brush that applies the powder perfectly. The box is quite bulky and I find when in my bag the lid falls off and I end up with blusher everywhere. Although at first I was shocked at the £22 price tag I managed to find ones on ebay selling for around £7.50. Its been about a month and i've barely made a dent in it.
Summary: A perfect blush for all occasions
