Benefit- Dandelion Dew and Shy Beam!

 Hi Lovelies
It's quite surreal when one of my favourite makeup brands Benefit Cosmestics sends me their new release! As I was planning on purchasing some of the new Dandelion collection myself, this was the best surprise parcel i've had in a while!
These exciting goodies with be available from May 2nd!

Firstly how gorgeous is the packaging! I got sent the new Dandelion Dew Blush, Dandelion Shy Beam Highlighter and Dandelion Wishes Beauty Kit!

Dandelion Dew
A Soft Baby Pink Radiance for Cheeks

I haven't tried too many liquid blushes and I should really get into cream products because I have quite dry skin. So its the perfect time to start with Benefits new Dew!
Dandelion Dew gives a gorgeous sheer baby pink flush to the cheeks with a dewy finish which gave my cheeks the appearance of having a healthy looking glow.
A little goes a long way, you don't really need a whole pump as I first discovered, I would say half a pump is enough for both cheeks, I dotted the dew on the apples of my cheeks and slightly on my cheek bones, to blend I just patted with my ring finger in circular motions and then continued to blend it out even more with a stippling brush.
For a more intense colour the Dandelion power blush is perfect for adding a bit more colour to your cheeks I really like this liquid blush its subtle and buildable if you want rosier flushed looking cheeks. 

Dandelion- Shy Beam
A Nude Pink Matte-Radiance Highlighter
Shy Beam is describe as a highlighter with a low profile. It is a soft baby pink, shimmer-less highlighter.
Now I love my highlighters so I was the most excited to try this product, yet when reading the description I was confused at first as to how a matte highlighter would look. Shy Beam gave my cheek bones a gorgeous radiant glow, that looked really really natural! 
I place about 3-4 dots on each cheek bone and blended it out with my ring finger in little circular patting motions.
Even add a few dots to your cupid's bow, bridge of the nose and brow bone for extra radiance.
Can be worn alone or over makeup. 

Dandelion Wishes
Pretty Pink Love
