it's new month already and i totally forget about monthly favorite .. oh well i think i might skip that again .. *sigh*
since i saw several question asking the difference between Benefit Dallas and Tarte Exposed, there i made some comparison for you :D
My Benefit Dallas stay inside Powderazzi set :)
on pan, they look kinda similar, but not the same
Benefit Dallas is natural, dirty rose shade, a lil bit plummy and has a sheen finish. Truthfully, i don't adore it as much as i adore another benefit blushes (let say, coralista, dandelion and hervana). But Dallas has the same texture with another benefit blushes i have, creamy (but sometimes turn powdery on pan), good pigmentation and buildable but lack of staying power.
Benefit Dallas is available on benefitcosmetics.com for $28 (7.0 Net wt. 0.28 oz.)
Tarte Exposed is nude, dusty red-pink rose with nearly matte finish. I found it turn a little bit pinky-er on me than before.. It's pretty shade of every natural-earthy girl for anytime. Tarte Exposed has a good pigmentation, very buildable, soft, and i found it last 6-7 hours on me.
Tarte Exposed is available on tartecosmetics.com for $26 (0.2 oz)
* My Comparison *
Shade : Tarte Exposed (Benefit Dallas somehow looks so muddy on me)
Lasting Power : Tarte Exposed (definately)
Texture : love them both
Packaging : Tarte Exposed (more practical)
Price : Benefit Dallas (since it contains more product)
Tarte Exposed = 3.5/5 while Benefit Dallas = 1.5/5
So for me, Tarte Exposed is a big winner. Benefit Dallas' single packaging is pretty, i know, but experiencing from another benefit blushes, they're not the best on travelling. The only good thing about them is portable natural blush that Tarte doesn't have, but it's not a big issue for me.
Price wise, even if Dallas contains more product, i never think i'd ever ever ever finish a blush. Tarte has a good affordable price, but contains less than half product compared to Dallas which make it more expensive per ounce.
What do you think about them? Which one is better for you? :)
