a sheer pink highlighter for a warm, shimmery glow! very subtle, lovely and actually pretty versatile, I use it sometimes for a nice glow on the collarbones or shoulders, etc. the scent is nice, not distracting and doesn't last too long.
I wear this blush everyday (when I wear makeup) it's absolutely perfect! I love simple blush! This was is that but gives me a beautiful radiant look on my cheeks. I've had this since Christmas 2012 and barely made a dent in it it's gonna last forever! It's real worth the money. Love it!
Benefit's Dandelion Box-o-Powder is a "sheer ballerina pink face powder to take your complexion from dull to radiant with buildable color and just a hint of shimmer. Sweep it on the cheeks as a soft blush or dust it all over face as brightening finishing powder." I love Benefit's Box-o-Powders, I think most bloggers and beauty lovers do. I received a 3 g (.1 oz) sample of the Dandelion Box-o-Powder in Benefit's Dandelion Wishes set, which I received as a free gift from Ulta. The full size of this Box-o-Powder contains 7g (.28 oz) and retails for $28. Benefit offers a selection of 9 Box-o-Powders. Benefit does not test on animals. This blusher was made in America. Benefit products can be purchased through the brand's website, Benefit counters and boutiques, Sephora, and Ulta.
Benefit's Dandelion Box-o-Powder comes in a green cardboard box with a flip top lid. The Benefit logo, product name, and a pinky, puffy dandelion. A natural hair bruh is included with each Box-o-Powder. My little sample comes in a small plastic clamshell container with the same general design on the front. A short description and full ingredient list can be found on the back. Benefit's Box-o-Powders are known for their excellent textures. My past experience with these blushes lead me to believe that the texture is highly variable. The Dandelion Box-o-Powder is a very soft, silky powdery that's solidly pressed and kicks up very little residual powder. It's very easy to pick Dandelion up on a brush. This powder blush applies with ease and is very to blend. Honestly, I have a very hard time figuring out how to use Benefit's Dandelion. Is it a blush? Is it a powder? Is it a highlighter? All of the above? I don't really understand the concept of this powder, I guess it's up to the user and their skin tone. For review purposes, I chose to use Dandelion as a blush and a highlighter. Really, I don't like it as either. This powder is too subtle to be used as a blush, yet too pink toned to be a highlighter. On my very fair skin, Dandelion provides very little color but a subtle sheen. The subtly of this product makes it very difficult for me to judge it's longevity.
Benefit's Dandelion is very pretty in the pan, it's a very light pink with subtle gold microshimmer. Don't be too concerned about the shimmer, it shows up on the skin as a sheen, not as a glittery finish. In a heavy swatch, Dandelion shows up as a light peachy pink, a very pretty color that would appear as a soft, natural flush on fair skins. However, once Dandelion is blended out, the pink hue is barely visible. I don't know who Dandelion would would show up on. I'm very hair and like many pale people, I have rosy cheeks, and their natural pinkness trumps any color Dandelion deposits. Skin tones more than a few shades darker than mine likely won't be suited by such a light sheer powder. For me, Benefit's Dandelion isn't a blush, face powder, or a highlighter. The shade just doesn't suit any of those purposes. I do, however, like to use Dandelion on the eyes, its great for blending
I'm still so mixed up about Benefit's Dandelion powder. The packaging is precious and in the pan it looks promising. The texture of this powder is lovely and very high quality. Pigmentation is light, but I'm pretty sure that's intentional. The lgiht pink shade doesn't suit my skin as a blush or highlighter and I really can't imagine using it as an all over face powder. I do like it on the eyes though. I'll continue to use and and experiment with Benefit's Dandelion Box-o-Powder, but I don't recommend this puzzling product.
Pro Tip: A similar but more potent color can be created by mixing the Bella Bamba and Sugarbomb Box-o-Powders.
Might just be me...
Doesn't stay on throughout my day, even with primer. The color is alright; a light peachy pink with a super subtle glow, and like most reviewers I am very light skinned. I don't like using the brush it came with, it does go on a bit better with a normal blush brush. Probably won't repurchase this one.
Lovely shade, beautiful application
My favourite Benefit blusher. The blush is very feminine candy pink that gives me a really healthy glow. I find that the colour really suits my pale complexion. The Blusher comes with a convenient brush which works fine but I prefer to use my own blush brush.
Being so pale, this is wonderful as a blush for me. I have used it as a highlighter by using a TINY amount but I LOVE this as a blush. Most blushes are WAY too dark for me. this adds a subtle flushed look that I LOOOOOVE
I adore Benefit and I adore Dandelion. I'm very pale so a lot of blush looks harsh on my fair skin but dandelion is just the right pinkish shade that gives me a little bit of glow as well. Smells great too!
I didnt think this colour would show up good on my skin but I this it was just the testers being a bit dried up. I took a chance and finally added this one to my benefit box collection and Im super duper happy i did. Its my go to natural flushed looking blush:)
The most natural, beautiful blush I've ever used. It's a sweet, warm pink with the slightest hint of peach. It smells lovely and soft, and has a very subtle shimmer that doesn't transfer onto the skin. Instead, it has a natural, skin-like appearance.
I use a standard blush brush and it shows up perfectly on my NC20/25 complexion.
Even though it's pricey at £23.50, a pan lasts years and is worth the money.
When I'm tanned, I transfer over to Coralista.
A really flattering color
There are days when I am just NOT IN THE MOOD to put on my whole face - and on those days I have a small makeup bag that contains my FAST FACE. The blush/face powder I use is Dandelion.
The pink shade is just lovely and it adds this wonderful flush of color that I think would be flattering on anyone. I've used it with just mascara and lip gloss in a pinch.
