I bought this blush a few days ago having decided I'd quite like a pink blush to go with my vast collection of corals! I adore Coralista and Sugarbomb and I also use Bella Bamba but only in summer. As a lover of all the BeneFit blushes, I decided to go for Dandelion as I wanted a soft pink, not a bright pink (Bella Bamba does that job!) and the reviews are pretty good too. However, whilst I will use it and I do like it, it doesn't live up to the others, especially Coralista. I guess it depends what you want in a blush. I like a shimmer, or a sheen, but not glitter. Coralista and Sugarbomb have a gorgeous sheen, with the Sugarbomb sheen being more on the golden side. Dandelion, however, has a very subtle shimmer, almost to the point of being unnoticeable. It doesn't make my face glow like the others do and when I did wear it, I ended up putting Coralista on top just for the sheen as I knew I wasn't happy with it. However, it did give a lovely pink glow during the day. I will therefore be keeping it, however I will not use it alone. I will use something on top to bring more life to my cheeks, maybe my Mac Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle or my Bobbi Brown Beige Shimmer Brick. I think both are neutral enough not to hide the pink tones of this blush but they will add some much-needed shimmer. I've never been a lover of matte blushes, so I think I expected too much from Dandelion. As with all BeneFit blushes, however, I cannot fault the quality and it is very easily applied and does not streak at all. Anyone who wants a healthy glow without much shimmer will love this. Those who prefer the more noticeable blushes from BeneFit will probably find they need to use something else with it.
UPDATE: I have upgraded this to a 4 as I've discovered I can create the most beautiful glow using this and my Mac Soft & Gentle Skinfinish on the cheekbones. This has therefore become my favourite pink blush and I will definitely be repurchasing!
This was the first high-end blush that I bought and I LOVED it since the first time I used it. It gives your cheeks a nice pink glow to them and makes them look like you're not actually wearing any. The packaging isn't bad, the only thing is the brush that it comes with isn't practical but I've always had my own blush brush so it wasn't a big deal to me. It's definitely worth the money and once I run out (which will be in a long time since it really does last forever) I will be buying it again.
For years I contemplated buying this blush/highlighter whatever you prefer to call it and I just kept skipping over it and finally I decided to pull the trigger on a 500 point perk that included a full sized one of these. Who wouldn't choose free? Ok so anyhow, the color is a soft muted kind of dusty pink with no shimmer. I have heard people say this did not show up on their skin whatsoever so I was a tad worried but in the winter I'm an NC20 and I have never had a blush not show up yet. As of right now I'm somewhere between NC20 & NC30 and it looks great. It is a complete foolproof blush in my opinion. It's also very subtle and I like that on some days. I use my Nars Yachiyo brush and it applies just the right amount of product. I got the new style box with the magnetic attached lid and I like it but no more or less than the old style boxes. The brush got chucked immediately, I just have no use for those things. I got this for free but I would buy this again!
I have to emphasize this is probably best for light skin tones as I'm NC35 and it took me a while to build up the pigmentation so it would actually show up. It's a nice neutral baby pink that's mostly matte IMO. I can see myself using this everyday.
This is a face brightener and I use it all over my face but only lightly.. It's my finishing powder.. Do prefer Georgia but am going to finish the box before going back to Georgia. Definately good as a powder but as a blush it's not pigmented enough.
I am asian with NC30 for reference. By itself, the color doesn't showup very well so i recommend using it over a cream blush. This will really make it pop and the color is beautiful. I like to use it in combination with Sonia Kashuk Cream Blush which I apply with a stippling brush and then top with dandelion. Also, I have tried this with the NYC Blushable Creme Sticks and this works well too.
I use this stuff daily as part of my no-make-up-look. :P
It looks really natural and gives my face a healthy glow like i just did a brisk walk or light jog.
This blush is very cute. It's so pretty and pink. It comes in a great package, and I really like the applicator it comes with. It gets just the right amount of product on it and all I have to do is drag it from my apples, to my cheekbons and to my temples. It really sculpts my face. It's very pink. It kind of looks like cotton candy. It looks great on my super pale skin. I bet it would look cute on darker skin tones too.
Best of all for me- I really love it- but the packaging is exasperating. It's difficult to get the product out from the deep corners of the paper box. I will continue to use it, however.
I LOVE this blush. It is a gorgeous subtle flesh pink colour that goes on so beautifully, you don't even need to blend it. It not only makes you glow, it contours your face. I can see why people are saying it works best as a highlighter but I love it as a blush on my skin tone (medium-fair, yellow undertones). It would look even better on someone who was very pale. I can't rave enough about this, it is a beautiful blush.
