Benefit Box O' Powder

It’s a well-documented fact that nothing brightens up your complexion like a bit of blush. While exercise or an embarrassing joke is a sure-fire way to give your cheeks rosy flush, we’d rather rely on Benefit’s versatile powders. Each of these gorgeous shades can be used for sculpting and contouring your features or adding a subtle tint to cheeks. The square compacts come with a built-in mirror, plus a soft mini-brush made from natural bristles. All four silky shades blend easily and work on all skin tones.

love box o' powders!
Purchased

I own four of these, and I love them all. I have Bella Bamba, Coralista, Sugarbomb, & Dandelion, and I purchased them in that order. Bella Bamba is definitely my favorite. It's a super bright girly pink (not overwhelming, but it easy to over do it with this one!) It's very flattering with my blue eyes and fair skin. Coralista is nice, it's a warmer apricot shade with, in my opinion, the most shimmer. It goes well with a tan. Sugarbomb has four different shades which you swirl together. For some reason, I find this one to be more powdery than the others and although I like it, I don't wear it too often, as it tends to cling to dryness on my face.
And lastly, Dandelion, my reason for writing this review. I bought this one last because after all the pink from Bella Bamba on my cheeks everyday, I felt like I needed something more sheer. I didn't want to go without blush, but didn't want anything to stand out on my cheeks. It's perfect for that! I see alot of complaints about it not showing up, and that's just not true. It does a nice job of making my cheeks pop, without obvious color on them besides a hint of pink. I wear this as my everyday blush and will certainly be the one I use up first, and will buy it again and again. It's a must have ( just after you own another stand out shade!)

An old standby for me
Purchased

This was one of the first Benefit products I bought almost twenty years ago. I've been using it ever since. It creates just the right touch of glimmer without my skin looking too shiny.

Love it!

The powder is light and complimentary for my skin tone, it's my new go-to.

The only issue I have is that I bought this to earn the extra points with purchase, but of course no extra points has been added (in all promotions I have used). It's pretty frustrating.

beautiful golden shimmer

i have this in 'dandelion'. the color is so subtle it is practically non existent. so this can't be worn as a blush (unless you're in grade school or a nun). it is much better for it's intended purpose, to fake a healthy glow. it has a beautiful warm golden shimmer (versus cool silver). it's gorgeous in the sun. i love it.

Big Let Down
Purchased

I love Benefit products, and thought I would try this blush since it came highly reviewed. I was so disappointed because I could barely even see this blush no matter how many swipes across my cheeks. Instead it gave me this washed out, almost shiney look with hardly any color at all. I ended up using my regular blush over it, only to achieve a clown look. The packaging is nice, the brush is fantastic, and the bonus of a mirror was also a plus; however, if you want to see any color at all, this is not the product for you.

Very sheer

I found this product to be too sheer to be usable. It's lightly pigmented and the color does not show on my fair skin.

This is my second box of dandelion blush. It gives a very natural look. Not too girly, just a natural glow.

Perfect for the fair skinned

I love Benefit Cosmetics and this is one of my favorite shades. I have very fair skin, and this color is just light enough to give my cheeks a natural glow. It's subtle enough that I can go a bit dramatic with my eye and lip colors and not have to worry about my blush taking the look over the top.

Also, I'm a big fan of the style of the Benefit blush brush. The rectangular shape cups my cheek bones quite nicely for precision application.

All in all, this is my favorite go-to everyday blush. Smells nice, last a decent amount of the day and isn't too shimmery for day time.

Pretty Pink

The color of blush is amazing, a little goes a long way on my face. It's great for fair-ish skin. he brush is not my favorite, I just use a regular angled brush to apply. It is definitely a long lasting product, love it!

Dandelion

This is a great blush, when you want a more natural look. A pretty subtle pink. Not splotchy, goes on easily. It works great with the Hoola bronzer. And the product doesnt get all messy in the container. Love it!
