Review & Swatch : Benefit Dandelion

Truthfully, i never think that my first Benefit box-o-powder is Dandelion.
I think it would be bella bamba, or hervana, or coralista since they have more pigment in shade and more cute ~ 

But since i found out i always looks tired & dull in morning, i decided to get Dandelion. I bought preloved Dandelion from another female daily member, and she sent me the old dandelion .. it was good since old dandelion has more product than the new one. Old product has 10.0g (0.35 oz) while the new one only has 7.0g (0.25g).

what 's ulta says about it?
Start your day the perk-me-up way, and keep them guessing how you look so pretty this early in the morning. Dust on our soft, pink, perk-me-up powder for instant radiance and a youthful appearance. Its the perfect shade of pink that brightens everyone's complexion

and what's benefit says about it?

a brightening face powder

Why we love it

This sheer ballerina pink finishing powder with a subtle shimmer takes your complexion from dull to radiant in an instant! To perk up throughout the day, dust on cheeks or all over face. Soft, natural-bristle blush brush included.
and in back side of box, benefit says :
finely spun with delicates mauves and pinks, this exquisite brightening face powder leaves a petal like finish

my 10.0g dandelion

the box, the brush, the separator & the product

i dont like this brush (︶︹︺) 
it's better than my sigma F30 to pick up dandelion, but sadly, very sadly, it's hurt my face!
i'm only using it if i want to use dandelion as blush, which i rarely do. I am mostly use my F30 to use it as illuminating powder.

this is how benefit dandelion looks on my neutral to warm skin, around nc/nw 25
it's hard to shown once it blended, works very good as illuminating (or brightening powder, according to Benefit) but not very good as a blush.

Dandelion is a shimmer-sheen light pink, it works well as finishing powder since it doesn't give too much shimmer nor adding too much color.
it's simply gives me a "wake up face" in the morning, which will be turn a little bit oily in 2-3 hours.
I never put too much attention to Dandelion's scent, it's very soft like baby powder, but not disturbing. You can't smell it once it applied on your face.

Dandelion is part of my morning routine, it helps me looks fresh and brighter (ノ´∀`*)ノ
