Benefit Cosmetics’ Dandelion family just keeps getting better with the addition of the new powder highlighter which goes by the name of Dandelion Twinkle! Coming out today for us Aussie Beauty lovers, I am so so happy as it’s launched right on my birthday!
The packaging of this beauty is a beautiful metallic ballet pink, with a single dandelion on the outside of the trademark Benefit Boxed powder.
Described as a ‘nude-pink powder for highlighting and illuminating’ this is the exact function it fulfils.
When you open the box, inside you get an applicator brush for the highlighter which is specially shaped to be slightly rounded on the edges to apply your blush with a smooth blended application. Personally, speaking I find that for my love of intense and beaming highlighter on the face, this brush doesn’t give that effect. Instead, you will love the brush which comes with this product if you like a natural yet, lit-from-within glow.
The colour of the powder when you open the product is a light ballet pink, almost mixed with a pearly finish and there are no large chunks of glitter in the highlight shade.
When swatching this highlight, it definitely gives a natural lit finish to the skin, with a hint of a light powder finish. It is extremely fine and smooth to the touch, which I would think is because of it’s baked technology.
So here’s where you’re probably thinking, what is she going on about; but the scent of this highlighter is actually a delight to me! It smells a little bit like roses, or a slight floral scent! And anyone who knows me knows, that I love roses or floral fragrances and scents, so this highlighter is actually really impressing me!
Another awesome thing I love about all the box-o-powders that Benefit Cosmetics offers, is that no only do they provide a brush, but they all have an awesome mirror encased in the box, so it’s perfect for travelling and that sneaky makeup application on the go!
Final words on this highlight is that it’s definitely an awesome highlight for most skin-tones and those who are very fair will LOVE it! The packaging is on-point, and I am definitely gonna be rocking a slightly more subtle highlight over the next few weeks, thanks to this baby!
