Benefit's Dandelion boxed powder is a product that left me confused. I have always thought of it as a blush and this is largely how it was portrayed in the beauty community, so when I bought it for myself I used it in this way. However, on the box it says it's a "brightening face powder" which is what got me thinking.
As a blush Dandelion is by no means a pop of colour. It's a subtle, rosy pink that leaves natural colour to the cheeks with an added sparkle. It's beautiful and the product that eased me into wearing blush. It was a lot like bright lipsticks, I wasn't sure how much was too much and I didn't want to look too "done up" on a daily basis - but I know now that isn't the case at all! This really is great for beginners or just anyone who enjoys the colour it gives off. Applied very lightly to the tops of the cheeks it just adds something to face.
This is a product I love and I cannot image my makeup bag without it, but I'm also not sure how readily I would repurchase it. In terms of value for money, it doesn't do a lot. It's by no means a perfect formulation full of strong pigmentation with amazing results. However, it is a product that is almost sentimental to me as it was my first high-end purchase - a bit of a weird one, hey?
If you own this I'd love to know how you use it!
