Review: Benefit's Feelin' Dandy

I received this for Christmas and wasn't going to review it, but once I'd tried it I had to as it creates such a lovely look. Benefit includes a handy 'Tips & Tricks' booklet inside which tells you how you can use all the products at the same time. The packaging, as is usual with Benefit products, is so pretty and bright. The set includes miniatures of High Beam, Posie Tint, Dandelion blush and Dandelion lip gloss.

High Beam - I've used High Beam for a long time and had just run out of my full sized version when I got this kit. I love how subtle it is, while still giving a lovely highlight and slight shimmer to the face. I love wearing this on no make up days to give me a glow.

Posie Tint - this is probably the least useful product in the kit. I much prefer it on lips to cheeks, but to use all the products at once it suggests using it on cheeks. The only problem I find with it on the cheeks is that it doesn't blend all that well so can look a bit streaky! It is a nice tint for lips though.

Dandelion Blush - I have quite pale skin so this is such a lovely pale pink shade for me. I use my own brush for it though, as the one that comes in the kit is too small and doesn't cover a big enough area for it to look natural. I would definitely buy the bigger version of this blush.

Dandelion Lip Gloss - I'm not usually a lip gloss person, but I love this at the moment and wear it pretty much every day! It's so smooth and tastes really good too (although that's not the best reason to wear it!). It's got a very subtle colour, which is really nice for everyday wear. I love this kit and would definitely recommend it, particularly if you have pale skin like me.

When wearing this kit all together I apply a bit of Benefit's POREfessional along with a bit of Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer and Rimmel Stay Matte Powder before applying the kit. I keep eyes natural with just a dash of Rimmel Volume Flash Mascara and just brush brows into shape. It creates a lovely girly but natural look which I love. I would definitely recommend this kit as a great way to try out some Benefit products.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?

  1. This is such a cute kit! I've recently started using the dandelion blush, for a paler pink tone. It all looks lovely on you :)

    1. Aw thank you! Yeah I love it and will definitely be buying the bigger blush when this has run out!

  2. Thanks for the review Amy! I am also quite fair skinned and always looking for things to suit my complexion, its quite easy to look cakey when you have fair skin, isn't it?!
    Look forward to reading more from you

    1. Glad it's useful! And yes I totally agree, I always feel like make up looks more obvious on me than on other people because I'm pale!
