Its a beautiful pale pink blush with slightly more gold shimmer than I'd like. It doesn't show any coral on me - which is a very good thing. Its not very pigmented on its own but it does give a nice depth used over bronzer on your cheeks. Used lightly, it can be an overall highlighter or swept over eyes to give a little polish.
I love the litle box and the brush inside it. I've had my dandelion for years and its still holding up. I wouldn't buy it again because I've got quite a few similar yet better pale blushes and I've hardly even made a dint in this one.
I absolutely love Dandelion.
I have extreme combination skin. This doesn't accentuate my dry areas, and as an all-over face powder, it controls my oily appearance for at least two hours.
I layer it twice on cheeks for nice healthy glow. I'm also incredibly pale, and this is one of those shades that would look natural on any skin tone. It's very light, but layer-able.
It's a very light, pretty pink, and sheer enough in one or two "coats" to use as a finishing powder.
I enjoy the box packaging, it's cute and easy. Because it doesn't close magnetically, you don't have to worry about the box trying to close itself at inconvenient times.
I know it's not just me, but this product smells very nice for makeup! It's not mineral-smelling, like a metal scent. It's not overtly chemical smelling, and it doesn't smell like chalk. It's just a light, fresh, vaguely floral scent. That may bother some people, but I only notice the scent in the box and not on my face.
For $28, you do get quite a good amount of product. I've been wearing it five days a week since December and I can't imagine hitting pan any time soon.
I am very happy with this purchase, and I will re-purchase when I get low the second I can afford it.
This was the first blush I ever had (over 4 years ago!). Since then I've gone threw 2. I like that this product is literally fool proof to put on. Its perfect for days where you want that 'natural' glow to your cheeks. The only draw back for me is the card board packaging, I find it get scratched up easily. I would recommend this product to anyone one who is new to makeup.
I really love this sheer baby pink blush on my pale skin. I wear it every morning because it is impossible to overdo or mess up. Dandelion helps my face look brighter and awake! However I don't this this is women of color friendly. It is waaay too sheer!
Love, love love Dandelion; it's one of my HG blushes. It makes my otherwise very fair, pale complexion (NW5-10; NARS Siberia) look brighter and more lively. If I could give this ten stars, I would! It's the perfect shade of baby pink, and it is very difficult to overdo. I normally do not like scented products on my face, but I love the way this smells!
(As is the case with all Benefit blushes, though, I really dislike the box packaging. If you carry it with you, it looks worn and beat up within days -- and if you get it wet, forget it -- it looks ruined!)
I'm a neutral light/medium (NW/NC 25) and if I worked with this I could get it to show up and work as a sheer pastel pink blush, but it just required too much work for me like it.
This is my go to pink blush. Perfect "spring pink" for fair complexions. I don't like the brush it comes with, I use my bare minerals blush brush. I think the packaging is cute...but it's cardboard and the corners are dented in. I'll cry if Benefit stops making this gem.
I love this. I received this in a swap and immediately started using it every day so thank you to the person who sent me this. It is easy to put on -- I used my own skunk brush, swirl it around inside the box, and put it on. You can keep putting it on as much as you want as it is hard to overdo. I think it is very natural looking. I have this and Sugarbomb and I love them both, but Dandelion will definitely go with everything (for me, considering my coloring of course, which is pale and I'm more on the cool side of things.)
The packaging is cute. I love the package, I love the pink. It should be a luminizer, but i use it totally as a blush. As a luminizer, the brush in it, i think, maybe helpful. But use it as a blush the brush doesn't work, you have to use your own. I have to brush quite a long time to add the color on my cheek. The color goes well on my skin. (As an Asian girl, I'm with quite fair skin.) There is nothing wrong with the product. It is pretty good. It's just....i am not so into it.
i love dandelion. yes it's expensive, but it's the prettiest pink ever, and i just feel like it looks so natural on my skin, a true flush. and it's hard to over-do it, so if i'm rushed, it's perfect. i occasionally do use this as an all over powder, although i'm not sure that it makes me 'glowy'. but as a blush, i'm in l-o-v-e. oh, and i really love the box packaging.
