Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Dew Review

Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Dew Review

Recently I have been looking to try more cream/liquid blushes and so, on a recent Sephora trip, I discovered Dandelion Dew ($49 SGD) by Benefit! It’s the liquid version of Benefit’s ever so popular Dandelion powder blush. 🙂 I’m happy to report that it smells exactly like the powder version! The fragrance is light and will dissipate after a while. 🙂

Dandelion Dew is a beautiful pink shade that complements my fair skin. On the website, it’s described as a “soft baby-pink shade“. On my fair skin, it looks like a bright Barbie pink. As it has a sheer finish, medium to deep complexions will most likely need to apply a few layers for it to show up well or layer it with the original powder blush. If you’ve fair skin, you can get away with one light layer. The texture is creamy, yet not thick, and easy to blend.

My favourite methods of applying it would be using a Beauty Blender or the 13rushes Angled Flat Foundation Brush. I pump Dandelion Dew directly onto the Beauty Blender, gently dabbing it on the skin. The Beauty Blender blends it in seamlessly, leaving behind a streak-free finish.

About the perfume

Designer Jeremy Scott became the creative director of Moschino in 2013. Fun fashion collections that he has done for this house were inspired by fast food, pop culture, Sponge Bob cartoons and the Barbie doll.

Moschino Toy comes in an unusual bottle that looks like a teddy bear who is wearing a T-shirt saying “THIS IS NOT A MOSCHINO TOY.” The bottle is inside the teddy bear and diffuser is revealed when you take off the bear’s head.

The scent is unisex, light citrusy-floral-woody. It opens with bergamot, mandarin, juniper berries and cardamom; with violet, aromatic tones of lavender and hawthorn petals in the heart, and cedar, sandalwood, vanilla and musk in the base.

Piñita Colada Shower Gel

The Shower Gel ($12.90 SGD) is a delight to use in the shower. It smells fresh, juicy and sweet – a mouthwatering blend of pineapple and coconut. One whiff of it is enough to transport me to tropical paradise, if I closed my eyes I can picture myself sitting on the beach overlooking the gorgeous Caribbean sunset, drink on one hand, book in another. Being soap-free, this shower gel gentle enough that it will not leave your skin feeling tight or dry. The scent doesn’t linger long after you shower so I’d suggest pairing it with the Body Sorbet or the Body Butter.

    Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer Review

    Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer Review

    I have been a fan of the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer so when Tarte released a new concealer with the Rainforest of the Sea collection, I immediately ordered it off the Tarte website without swatching it in person. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer ($26 USD) is said to be a “lightweight, 12-hour concealing serum with skin-soothing benefits that provides targeted, medium, buildable coverage.” I picked up the shade in “fair” which is the lightest shade in the range.
