Finally, an overall face color for me!!! I was using dandelion but it really didn't show up on me.I have brown hair, blue eyes and medium toned skin. I am not that dark complected but I am not a PPP either. For ladies in the mid range as far as coloration goes, this one is for you. I use it all over and apply with the little brush it comes with and then I put on a blush on the cheeks. Love, love, love it!!!!

LOVING this! It IS really a good "bronzer" b/c think of it: most people don't flush brown, they get more ruddy/ plum-ish w/ color. TONS of product, great packaging, (the brush I gave to my 4 yr. old to play with so I apply w/ the MAC skunk brush). I think this color would work as a bronzer OR blush on most skin tones.

Love this stuff! I've been getting compliments lately since I started wearing this blush! Must try this since it will suit all skintones. I'm a NC30.

Well, I know that I'm in the minority here on this one...but this shade just did not work out for me. I'm a PPP/cool toned gal and thought that this turned muddy as the day went on. I tried this at first with the brush that comes with it and that was a mistake, it definitely applies too much product! I did use a blush brush after that...
The box is very cute with the cowgirl and the slogan "an outdoor glow for an indoor gal" face powder. It has a nice scent similar to the Dandelion face powder... I thought that the price was a bit high but I have a feeling that this would last a long time.
I don't plan to repurchase this item...

I am NC15 and on me this blush is the most gorgeous, natural, sunkissed glow. I always like to look natural and this blush does that great! I would describe the color as being plum/rose colored but also a bronzy look to it. The packaging I hate because I have to open it up and then the goofy brush in it is in the way. I can't seem to use this brush without looking like a clown, so I just use a regular blush brush. I also use this overtop of my high beam and I think it looks great. It is expensive, but I think it would last a long time. Would repurchase though.

I bought this without trying it on which was a bad idea. I had envisioned it to be more rosy bronze but to me it looks a lot like Nars Sin. I like it but I already have the Sin/Casino duo which I do like better than this. I think the quality is good and the packaging is so/so; I'm not crazy about the cardboard box package. But hey, it works so whatever. If you're looking for a color that is on the plummy side, I think this would be pretty. It's nice but I would not repurchase as I already have others that are quite similar.

AHHH Dallas...The Outdoor Glow for the Indoor Gal, that's me. A sheer dusting of Dallas gives me the perfect sunkissed glow, without being to brown or orange. Smells fresh and flowery and has a very subtle shimmer. I'll definitely be wearing Dallas while I am riding off into the sunset with my cowboy.

As other reviewers have said, do not be put off by the dark, muddy looking color of Dallas when it is in the box. You MUST try it on... THEN decide, because it looks completely different on your face, than in the package. It is a warm, rosey brown, that I honestly did not think was going to work on my cool (C3) complextion. It is hard to warm up my face, especially with a color described as "warm", but I decided to give it a shot. I was pleased. I did not use the enclosed brush. I do not like it and find it picks up too much pigment and awkward to use. I used my MAC skunk brush, which ended up working much better. Dallas came out looking like a much lighter, sheerer version of the rosey brown that it looks like in the box, with less muddiness to it. It actually did warm up my cool complextion in a natural looking way. It made me look healthy and polished. Almost like the start of a natural suntan, just before your skin turns brown. It looked great with my winter white eye palette, my brown/copper eye, plums and nudes. My guess is it will look great in the summer with a tan and minimal m/u. One complaint is the packaging. I know these boxes are cute, but it is very deep and hard to get a real brush in there for a good swipe. I wish they would change to a wider, more shallow box. My other complaint is that Dallas is SOOO pigmented, that is sometimes ends up looking blotchy, when I used it as a blush (as opposed to an all-over face color).

OMG I love this!!!! This is a beautiful plummy mauve shade. I was so excited when I opened the box because I knew that this shade would work well for me. It goes on silky smooth and stays looking fresh all day. It gives natural looking color that does not go on streaky or heavy. I also love the cute box it comes in with the girl on the horse picture. I love this blush and if I ever run out of it I will buy it again for sure!! I've been usingthis every day lately.
Huge rave from me! Everyone should check this out!

I agree with most reviewers that I was disappointed when I first opened the Dallas box. From the Benefit website, I was expecting a rosey-gold shade. Dallas is plum! I was also disappointed b/c in the box it looks so similar to NARS Sin, which I love, but dont need two of! But I decided to try Dallas anyway and I LOVE IT!! It is a really natural looking soft plum on my PPP skin! I do not use the brush that came with it...I use a regular powder brush and it works best IMO. Has a nice smell and cute packaging! Love it and will probably buy again, if I ever run out! I just dont know why these Benefit blushes are so expensive..thats a little but of a turn off :( OH well, its still great!

I bought this sight unseen. Don't be fooled by the picture on the benefit website...it doesn't look the same at all. I even emailed Benefit for a description before I bought it and they said it was just darker and warmer than dandelion....I don't really agree. When I opened it, I thought uh-oh, too dark. (I'm nc25, auburn hair). The back of the box describes it as sunset plum.
I love dandelion, and use the brush that comes w/ dandelion, so I did that w/ this...be careful! This is way darker and more pigmented than dandelion, plus the brush can pick up more than you want if you aren't careful. Well, once I blended it came out to be a really pretty blush. It's not an all over highlighter on my skin tone like dandelion is though.
Typical cardboard packaging- I don't like the packaging as much as other benefit products. I basically bought this because of my love of dandelion and it's a nice blush, but not amazing IMHO, especially considering the price. Overall, I like it enough to keep it- works well and looks nice when blended, but it's not especially unique and I'm not the biggest fan of the packaging.

To start things off I am currently a NC15 (winter is here) with chestnut brown hair and green eyes. I kept hearing that this blush was like NARS Sin and L'Oreal color of hope (after I already ordered it mind you), so I considered refusing the package and not even bothering to open it as the pictures loaded on MUA seemed to verify that it was very close to those other two blushes. Someone here on MUA talked me into opening it and giving it a try anyway. Upon comparing it to the Hope blush I find that it is not as plummy and has more brown tones to it and is warm rather than cool (JMO). I can't wear either the Nars or the L'Oreal because they are just too cool and look like i've got mud smeared across my face. So I pressed on, hopeful it would wow me somehow. This morning I tried it out and was completely caught off guard. This blush looks so nice. On me it looks a little like a beautiful rosey glow. I am SO glad I opened the package and tried it out - it's a keeper!
The packaging sucks but that's benefit for you and the cowgirl motif is tacky especially for $26. But the blush is worth every penny. It is unlike any blush I have - and I have a ton of blushers. =o)

If Dandelion and Hoola had a love child, its name would be Dallas. I love this stuff! For starters, the packaging is so cheesy-adorable (however I wish they would ditch the cardboard and use plastic so it would stay cute looking longer, and the included brush is pretty useless). When I first opened it, I was afraid it would be too dark and muddy on me (it's plummier than I had expected) but after applying it lightly all over my LLL face with a skunk brush, it created a lovely glow. I also used a blush brush to apply a heavier application to my cheeks, and that looked great too. I bet this would even work well as an eyeshadow. There is just enough shimmer to keep it interesting, but not too blingy. The only downside to Dallas is that I think $26 is a bit steep, but the price won't keep me from buying it again.

As soon as I opened the (very cute) little box, I thought ohhhh no this looks just like NARS sin. On my FFF/olive skin, sin made me look bruised and dirty. I decided to try it on anyway, and I'm glad I did! I used a powder brush to apply it to my cheeks, and it is a rosy-with-a-touch-of-bronze. Very pretty and surprisingly natural looking. I'm not sure about how it will look all over, but I assume it will make a good bronzer. On lighter ladies, it may just make them look burnt (as an all over powder). Dandelion didn't show up on my skin at all, and the pigmentation of Dallas is definately stronger. Light, undescript scent, very slight shimmer. I think BeneFit has a lot of nerve to charge 26 bucks for a powder blush, but we will see if I still feel this way after trying to use it as an all over, uhhh bronzer/highlighter (Im not sure exactly what it would be called).

When I first opened the box I thought "oh no, it's too dark" (me: blonde, LLL, NC20ish), but I used my skunk brush to apply to my cheeks, and it morphed into this gorgeous sunburned pink! It's actually much more pigmented than Dandelion and Georgia. Mixed with a touch of High Beam, my cheeks looked glowingly healthy.
