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.
Dandelion Dew gives me a natural, radiant, glowing from within look. It gives just the right amount of colour needed to brighten my face. I foresee myself reaching for this whenever my face is looking dull and tired. In addition, I love how it stays on for hours, much longer wear-time compared to a powder blush. Usually my powder blushes start fading after 6 hour but Dandelion Dew was still looking good after the 11 hours. Also, you know how some powder blushes contain shimmer which emphasize pores? Thankfully, Dandelion Dew is completely matte, so you don’t have to worry about the pores being emphasized.
Here is a photo of myself wearing Dandelion Dew! I applied a light layer so it’s not very noticeable on camera. If you ask me, this is perfect blush to achieve the natural Korean look!
All in all, Dandelion Dew works nicely as a liquid blush and will give you a fresh, dewy look. I love the bright green packaging; it makes my bottle instantly stand out among all my makeup. For $49 SGD, I’ll say it is well worth the price!
