Most Helpful Positive Review An Indispensable Part of My Daily Routine
I was skeptical about paying this much for a blush, but the color and smell were so pretty, and I was trying to upgrade my cosmetic purchases from the cheap stuff that was wrecking my skin, so I took the plunge. I am beyond glad that I did! Dandelion is the most gorgeous color; it looks good on every skin tone I've tested it on, from my own very pale complexion to my best friend's lovely deep chocolate brown skin. It's beautifully subtle with one swipe and gives you a sweet apple-cheeked glow with two or three.
Also, the gorgeous thing about Benefit is that, while their products will cost more than what you'll find at the local big box, a little of anything Benefit makes goes a long way. I've had this box of Dandelion for well over a year, and I use it every single day. It still looks just as beautiful, it still smells gorgeous and fresh, and I can't even begin to imagine when it will start to run out.
Also, a note about the brush it comes with: I always tossed the brushes that came with my cheap blushes. They made the color look streaky and were just awful. And I very nearly tossed the brush that came with Dandelion, but I decided to test it first. Boy, am I glad I did! It's exactly the right width for swiping over cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. Also, the bristles are super-soft. So give it a go!
Dandelion was my first Benefit purchase, but it wasn't my last. This was the product that got me to ditch my old makeup for good in favor of Benefit's absolutely wonderful line. A must-have for any makeup bag!
Most Helpful Critical Review Love the product, but lost it's value
I have been buying Benefit's boxed powders for years. I especially love the dandelion because it's light, blends well and I can wear it in the Winter when I'm pale as well as the Summer when I get tan. One reason I can justify spending the money on it is because in the past it has lasted me a long time, BUT... I was very disappointed when I ordered a new box only to see how much product is now being shorted, while charging the same price (or more). My old box Net wt was .42oz, now down to .25oz... really? I'm not sure I feel so good about spending that much money and getting almost half the product.

cleaver from California
I used to buy this all the time, but recently ran out and bought a new box, but it is heavily perfumed, like the Galifornia one. This is a bummer as I can't tolerate strong scents in things. I am sad that u seem to be scenting all the blush now.
Avery from Brighton
This is very pretty. It's not too pigmented and not too sheer. The reason why I took off one star was because it was definitely a little smaller than expected. I'll use this up then purchase the jumbo size.
Mia from Chicago
I have medium skin tone and get dark in the summer, but this blush looks good all the time! It's very subtle and natural. Just enough color for my cheeks. If you are looking for a darker, brighter blush that stands out, this is not for you.
Emma from Pottstown Pennsylvania
I just hit pan on this, which I rarely do when it comes to blushes. I love the light scent of this as well. I have fair/light skin but even when I tan this looks great. I use it as eye shadow too. It is super blendable. Highly recommend!
Second purchase of Dandelion brightening baby pink blush
Maggiemae from Arkansas
As a 74 year old "Winter", this is the perfect product to brighten my face without looking "made-up" light and airy finish.
tiff from california, usa
great natural blush that's great for "no makeup" makeup days. however, the scent is really strong.
not pigmented-even on fair skin
corn from va
I really have to build this up for it to show-and i'm relatively fair (not the lightest shade in most foundations, but usually within the first 5 or so). i find that kind of crazy-it's also very powdery and i'm not a huge fan of the shimmer especially since there's no color pay off.
Favorite Blush Ever
Lulu from NC
This blush is perfect. I will always use this blush. It's so brightening, yet so natural. I think it would be perfect for ALL skin tones.
My go to blush
Liz from Kentucky
This is a must have beauty product for me. I actually hadn't purchased this in quite a few years, I completely forgot about it. I recently bought it again and I'm so sad I've been missing out all these years. I'm very pale and this gives me a perfectly flushed look without looking unnatural.
Great everyday blush
Kelsey from San Diego
This is my go to everyday blush, I just love it. The color is a perfect flush of pink. I have very fair skin so the light color is just perfect. I have been wearing it for years, ever since it came out. I hate the packaging, too bulky for travel so I have tried some other brands in the same color and I just don't like them as much. It's not splotchy, has great color payoff and has a nice smell to it!
Pretty but toxic
Beautyjunkie from Los Angeles, CA
I absolutely loved this shade as it complimented my skin wonderfully. The powder was finely milled and applied nicely. I'm so glad I read another review that mentioned the toxic ingredients and use of parabens. I didn't think a company as large as Benefit would use such ugly ingredients. Not worth the health of my skin and endocrine system. In the trash it went!
Melissa from Los Angeles, CA
Prettiest shade of pink for my light skin tone. Didn't bother using the brush that comes with it. The formula applies well and it's buildable which is great if I want an everyday look or if I want more color for date night with Husband. The formula is very powdery and it accentuates any imperfections. Another reviewer pointed out how it has parabens and I thought those hormone- disrupting preservatives were a thing of the past. Back to the store it goes in the return bin.
I went with Shiseido instead- same price point and healthier ingredients with a different formula that won't remind me of the small scar on my face I got in cheer practice 10 years ago that goes unnoticed until I used Benrfit's dandelion blush.
It's a great product but became way too pricey
Just me from Arizona
I've loved using your products for quite a while. But they're so darn expensive now but I have they have been forced to find something else.
Unfortunately you've lost a good customer
I would buy this product again and again!
Xuan from MO
Great color!! Love it so much!!!!
Gorgeous pale pink
TanyaS from Northeastern US
Bought this one during the recent sale, for half price. It's a gorgeous pale pink and gives my fair olive complexion a subtle flush without looking too "red cheeked".
While I'm not a fan of the box packaging, it seems like these are easy to depot...
Not sure if I'll ever use the brush....
Loveeee this color
Jay from Los Angeles Ca
Loveeee this color! I've been looking for a light pink blush for a while now and never was able to find the perfect one. Now, I have 🙌🏼
Nicole from USA
I had seen good reviews of this product but the quality just isn't there in my opinion. To me this product reminded me of something you would get in a kids makeup set. Not worth the price for what you get.
WOW!! Absolutely Stunning! Pleasantly Surprised!
Laurieieie from USA
Just the perfect color I have been searching for if you have very fair skin like me. It is pigmented enough to add just the right amount of color, not too sparkly, and looks very natural at the same time. It also has an amazing scent. The only thing I do not like is the bulky box pack again, that you really have to dig your brush into however, I can get over this due to the gorgeous product. Thank you, benefit!!
Blush from Mid west
Cute and smells nice but honestly doesn't show up. I'm a pretty fair complexion so it should work for me
Yani from Miami, FL
I use this almost everyday. It's so pretty and delicate
Day of the Daed from AZ
I have used this blush for over 10 years. It loos very natural and it lasts.
Love it! Wish there's a matte version
R from California
I absolutely love the color! It's so natural and cute! But I wish Benefit can come out with a matte version.
Chloe from Washington
This blush blends very well and is pretty pigmented. It is also a nice light pink shade.
Ride or die blush
Lilcurleyqz from Texas
Daily use, simple, classic elegant blush.
My favorite blush
Carly S from Acton,CA
This is the most natural blush I have and it is my favorite. I also own the dandelion highlighter and that is my favorite highlighter. Both are very natural so I don't look too made up when I use them. My favorite lipstick to use is Urban Decay in the color native. It's a perfect pink and looks good with the blush.
