Since I have some free time in the mornings while I’m staying in Vancouver, I thought I would review some of the older products I’ve bought. I’ve actually had these for a while and I didn’t feel like reviewing them because they’re Western brands. There are usually a lot of reviews on them already, but then I thought.. meh why not LOL. It’ll help me keep track of the items I’ve bought.
Fake awake with Dandelion - Benefit's ballerina-pink pressed highlighting powder. Just one stroke of Dandelion takes your complexion from dull to radiant in an instant. It's shimmery, satiny, radiant, perk-me-up finish is guaranteed to make them wonder ..."How do you look so pretty at eight in the morning?"
You can tell mine is old because they redesigned the box that holds the blush haha ><. It says that it's a highlighting powder, but I just simply used it as a blush. I was roaming around Shoppers Drug Mart and was floating around the Benefit section. The old SDM near me only had a tiny little set up for it and every time I walked past I would check out the items. So it was a totally random buy LOL. I thought the packaging was cool because it came housed in a box instead of a case. I didn't even test it out @_@. Dandelion is actually quite light so it probably won't show on darker skin tones. I'm not pale, but I think I'm light coloured too and I still have to do a couple swipes in order for the colour to show up. Despite that, I still quite enjoy using it. It's light so when I'm going for a really natural look, it fits right in. People that were hoping for a little more pigment though would probably not like it much. It's also a bit shimmery since it's a highlighting powder. I don't really like their brush much because I feel like it's a bit stiff. On their site it says that people in Asia like to use their brush to brush on face mask after they're done with the mask! I want to try that after haha! ★★★★☆ -- 4/5 ~
