Blush Series: Benefit's Dallas Boxed Powder

Wednesday, 6 June 2012

Aren't we just whizzing through these blushes?

When I was just getting into makeup...I was always instantly drawn to the Benefit counter. There was just something about their quirky packaging and unique product names that appealed to the magpie in me! Dallas was one of the first make-up items I ever bought and it has stayed faithful to me ever since!




Definitely one of my favourite blushes ever and it doesn't even look like I've made a tiny dent in it! I used this throughout the entire Winter time because it just gave off that perfect 'oh look, I've just been galloping in the country air with my horse' kind of look. It is a slightly dark muted plum shade that leaves an oh so fresh glow across your cheeks. When I was swatching this powder for this post, I suddenly noticed how soft it was and made me fall in love with it even more!

It is a little pricey at £23.50 (as with all the Benefit's boxed powders) but I feel that it is really worth it. It lasts such a long time and it is such a quality powder. Next on my hit list is Benefit's Hervana and I was so close to buying it when Debenhams had 10% off all beauty items. So I shall settle for a lustful sigh whenever I walk past the Benefit counter.

What do you think of Benefit's boxed powders in general?

    1. It does suit a darker complexion I find. Dandelion always looks so pretty in the box!

  6. I love Benefit. I have Benetint, Posietint and Porefessional.All came free with Glamour magazine Uk. I bought multiple copies to obtain a full size version expect Posietint.I only have a small 4ml version of it. But I have to say from my expereince with those products I love, love Benefit but hate hate hate their expensive pricetag. :( haha but like you I like the look of their box powders. I had my eyes on Dallas for a long time now. About 3/4 years now but still haven't made a purchase. You made it sound so good I may finally pick it up this September along with Bella Bamba or Coralista. I can't choose but I have to. Do you have any of those blushes if so what would you recommend for a fellow Asian? I would love to hear your recommendation.

    Found your blog today and I'm glad I did. I followed immediately. I have my own beauty blog and would love it if you can stop by and follow aswell. Would love to be blogger friends with you. :) Have a nice day.

    1. Thanks for much for your comment, it put a smile on my face! I don't have Bella Bamba or Coralista but if I had to choose, probably Coralista...I'm always scrutinising the amount of shimmer in blush!

      Your blog is lovely! So lovely that it honoured a follow :) Thanks for reading!

    1. I think if you have a pale complexion you could get away with a light application of this blush :) Thanks for following!!
