Benefit Feelin' Dandy Kit - Review

Along with the How to Look Great at Everything kits Benefit have recently launched
three new kits which centre around some of their most loved boxed blushes.
In the line up you have Feelin' Dandy (Dandelion), Sugarlicious (Sugarbomb) 
and last but not least Go Tropicoral (Coralista) all of which are beautifully presented within a sweet 
little keep safe box which can be used to keep trinkets in once the products have been completed.

Each kit contains a great selection of products which have been aimed at cheek, lips and general face use.
Inside the Feelin' Dandy kit you have:
  • Posietint poppy-pink tinted lip and cheek stain (4ml)
  • High beam luminescent complexion enhancer (4ml)
  • Dandelion a brightening face powder (3g)
  • Ultra plush dandelion lip gloss (6.5ml)

Benefit Posietint Lip and Cheek Stain
I do adore Benefit's stains and liquid highlighters and although I don't always get on with this
shade as a cheek shade but I do like to wear it as a lip colour every now and then.
I find it to work very well as base shade to layer similar lip colours on top.
If you have light skin this will be a wonderful blush and as it is a stain it wears pretty much all day
on most skin types.

Benefit High Beam 
This was my first ever highlighting product way back when and I have pretty much always had
a bottle in my stash since then, Highbeam is a cool toned pearlscent pink liquid product
which you can use to highlight areas on the face or do as I do and mix a little in within your foundation
for an all over luminous finish.

Benefit Dandelion Blush
I have often swatched Dandelion at a Benefit counter or 10 and always deemed the shade a little too
cool and pale in tone for my skin colouring and refrained from purchasing but now my skin has
lost it's summer warmth it is actually a really flattering pale pink that gives a lovely light flush 
of colour and certainly a shade I recommend for light to medium skin tones.
The kit also includes a small brush for on the go application.

Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Dandelion
For what is what most will deem a sample or mini size the gloss in the kit is actually pretty generous
and great for popping in a bag or pocket for a little touch up throughout the day.
Dandelion is a light yellow pink shimmer based lip gloss that looks equally pretty on it's own
or layered over pretty much any other lip shade.

The Feelin' Dandy kit also comes with a little booklet which is loaded with tips and tricks
to help you get the most out of all the contents which is always helpful.
In my opinion the flurry of kits that Benefit have just launched not only make great gifts
but are a wonderful way to try out some famous Benefit products without forking out on full size products.
