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!
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.

This was recommended by the sales associate at Ulta as what to use for a sunburn look, and I love it. Great look on me, and I had so much fun learning how to apply my purchases.

Looks natural! Not too pink
Tania Carrillo from Corona, CA
I love the Sunkist look it gives. It feels light and makes my skin looks like it glows.
Sierra R from Sacramento, CA
This blush does not last AT ALL. I've even tried putting it on in different steps of my routine. I always use setting powder & setting spray and it still only lasts 5 minutes.

I did not realize how little pigmentation my other blushes had until I tried this one. Recommend using a very light hand and building from there. I'm glad I tried this on a day I wasn't going out because I needed this learning experience!
Andrea from Clarksville, TN

Great Pigment, pretty color, staying power, fluffy blush!
Ashley from Lake Worth, FL
Great blush! It's pigmented enough that one layer does the job. It stays in place all day. I tried several drugstore brands and some high end brands and this is far by the best. Will def buy again.

I am a benefit blush girl and have been over two decades since my teenage years. My all time favorite blush from any brand is Coralista and I still try to find people with some left. I was super sad when they discontinued it and will always hope for a Coralista revival but until then Shellie has been good to me. She's a beautiful coraly blush that's perfect for fair skin tones (Mac 22W). You can definitely accidentally over do it with Shellie but these blushes blend so well it's an easy fix. I also have Peachin and Sunny and I also mix them to try and get closer to my Coralista. Otherwise I use Mac blush and I think benefit's blushes are on the same level as my Mac blushes quality wise.

Was actually looking for a previous color option offered a while back but couldn't find it I guess it was discontinued or just a promotional. Found a fair replacement color that is close for summer skin tone, but I do love this line!

Some shades have more fall out than others. Beautiful blush but I think the price is a little too much.
JR from Idaho
Every color is gorgeous with so much pigment. Not super forgiving so start light handed and build up.
Karen from Wichita, KS
This blush applies smoothly and stays on for hours. The color (Rosy Bronze) is absolutely perfect. I can use it as both a blush as well as a bronzer,
MaryBeth from Akron, OH
This was just meh for me. I bought Dandelion which is a beautiful color but it goes on so lightly that you have to use a ton to get any color pay off. I also think the fragrance is overpowering. At this price point, there are better options. I'm returning mine!
Ivy from Syracuse, NY
This blush is fine, but truthfully I don't think it's anything special. Kinda seems like you're paying for the packaging more than the actual product. I bought it on sale, but I wouldn't pay full price for it.
Shelby from Tennessee
I use Willa over a putty blush and it stays all day. It's the best cool pink blush!!
Rachel from Vero Beach, Florida
This is my favorite blush of all. I have the shade PomPom. Perfect rose mauve color. I like how it's matte. I don't like shimmer blushes. Nor do I like pink or peachy blushes. Perfect color.

I used the Dallas box blush for many years which was discontinued by Benefit. Ordered a Pom Pom box blush and it broke. I am still using it. Love the color but the blush is in a million pieces in the new shallow sided box. Very disappointed.

Great summer color. Soft and light
Sarah from Ny
Ok. Ok. Honestly the formula is really good. But this stuff is HEAVLY scented. Im allergic to fregrance and the day i wore it it made me violently sneeze all day. And its not one of the scents that smells sweet or like fruit or like candy. It just smells like straight up perfume. I read reviews before i bought it and i cant believe none of them mentioned that it is scented. I mean seriously, what is the point of having fregrance in a blush in the first place. I ended up giving the blush to a friend. Anyways 3/5
