I now have all of the Benefit Boxed powders! Woot! Reviews are still to come on Dandelion and 10. Yes I know collecting them all is a bit daft at £23.50 for 9g of product in cardboard packaging but bear in mind I bought almost all of them either with gift cards or Boots advantage points. Anyway, on to Dallas!
The packaging is completely adorable. And the ‘’outdoor glow for an indoor gal” on the box couldn’t be any more appropriate for me in summer. I spend 99% of my time in door and the 1% I venture outside I am smothered with SPF so I can always use a little help faking a glow! Dallas is a pinkish bronze shade with a fine sheen to it. It’s definitely too pink and shimmery to be a bronzer, it is more of a bronzy blush.
It’s the sort of colour and finish that work really well on its own so I don’t feel the need to add bronzer and highlighter in order to give my face dimension. This is enough by its self. A word of caution though, this looks amazing when I am fake tanned to the hilt. I look healthy and like the sun has just caught my cheeks. But when I’m my natural pale self? It looks muddy and almost a little bruised. Pale skins beware and make sure you try it in store before shelling out the pennies.
Because I can really only use this when I’m tanned this does kind of restricts its use but I like it nonetheless. Do you need it? Well only if the colour suits you! I think it’s a fab shade for lazy summer days when I want quick and easy makeup without a million steps. The quality is good, it is pigmented and finely milled and blends easily (for some reason it looks a little wahed out in the above swatch :S Sorry abuot that) x
