I have used Dandelion as my HG blush for years. I think maybe 7!? it has been around for a long time and i hope it NEVER gets discontinued because i love it that much. I love the smell of it so much that i love to sniff the box..hehe. But, once it is on your cheeks there is absolutly no scent at all. Just a beautiful glowing natural hint of color. It's funny because when i wear this i get compliments about how i am actually "glowing". I let my mom in on my secret and told her that i was using dandelion. One day, i didnt have it on and she said, "where's your glowy stuff!?" =) Also, it is a little pricey but a box will last you forever.
I can't believe how lovely this is. It is not so much a blusher as a finishing powder though you can apply a little more to your cheeks to create a lovely flushed natural glow. It could potentially be a little chalky or draining if applied all over as the makeup artist suggested at the counter. Applied correctly and sparingly it creates a gorgeous glow. Beautiful! (NW 15/20 for reference!)
It's a very natural-looking blush on my NW25 skin tone. I actually quite like the packaging 'cos I think it's cute and I enjoy dipping my brush into that adorable little box. :)
Dandelion is a blessing for fair and fair/medium women who have a horror of clown blush. It's a soft rose that looks extremely natural on my NW20, pinkish complexion. The pigmentation is medium, which is perfect--enough to provide color but not too much to make application hazardous.
I know the packaging is controversial. If I'd had a say in it, the box would have been made out of a more substantial and classier material (God knows we're paying for it), but on a purely functional level I can't complain. It's sturdy, doesn't take up much space, and is easy to open. Even the brush is surprisingly useful--I actually do use it.
My first blush, but I love it. It smells nice and makes me GLOW. I also have acne scars that seem to lighten with this on my cheeks
love this product!!
the packaging can take a beating. Ive had my Dandelion blush forever. the powder is smooth and silky. wonderful for highlighting cheeks, brows, nose and under the eyes. it also looks beautiful all over the face. this powder is a staple in my makeup bag. it makes a dull face look awake. i just love it!
Absolutely love this blush, all time favourite next to Georgia Benefit peach powder. It is is a bit too bulky to carry every day but lasts forever! and at £22 its not too bad a price considering how much product u get! and it smells amazing, has a slight shimmer too it also.
1. Too expensive for what it is.
2. Cute packaging, but not practical to carry in a makeup bag.
3. I actually use the brush with this product, holding it long ways to apply a bit to the top of my cheek bones, but I could do without the brush, I use my fingers more often.
4. Very, very soft powder. Which is annoying because way too much product comes out, so quite a bit of this gets wasted.
5. Pretty color, looks good on my skintone, but is a a bit too shimmery for my taste, so rather than use it as a blush, I use it as a highlighter, except around my eyes since it's pink.
6. I like to put on bronzer or another (matte) blush on my cheek bones, and then put this at my temples.
Cute box. Pleasant scent. Decent little brush. But the shade -- a muted pale rose with fine golden shimmer -- doesn't wow me. It does show up; it's just sort of... meh. It starts off pink, but then it becomes warmer, rosier. I used to have Thrrrob, too; gave it away because it turned reddish on my cheeks and its silvery flakes were too noticeable. I kept Dandelion, but I'm not sure if it's worth getting again once it's gone. I won't have to face that dilemma soon, though; 10 grams of it will last me for ages.
Wow. My absolute favourite blush colour. Works well with my pale skin. It brightens and lifts my whole complexion without the 'look at my bright pink cheeks' effect. It looks really natural for a powder with subtle shimmer. I guess its buildable if you're looking for a stronger effect - I'd say its pretty impossible to over do it with this blush. The formula is great too. Negatives - The price - its a great product but I find it hard to justify the price for a blush, even when it is this good.
