Product Review-Benefit Box O' Powder

If you remember from my "Why Blush is Amazing" post, I don't flush easily. My face (unlike the rest of my body) doesn't tan easily, either. Blush makes me look younger, happier, brighter, and more awake. I love it, and you should too! Some of my favorites are Benefit's Box O' Powders. 
I love the sheerness of them, the colors, and the price. Ok, so they are about $28, but before you go ballistic on me, listen up. I don't even remember when I bought this thing. 1...maybe 2 years ago? And, it's still kicking. I literally need to just tap my blush brush in once for each cheek and that's it. 

Dallas is my favorite color. {Dandelion would be fantastic for very fair skin} I love Dallas because it imparts a lit-from-within-glow, like maybe you just got in from a brisk walk or finished with a nice steamy bath. It really gives you a subtle, healthy, and sexy flushed look. I just love it!

The packaging is also so cute. I remember the first time I saw them. A girl I went to school with used Dandelion and every time she took the box out to reapply, I would wonder what it was; the box was just so chic looking. It has a faint and pleasant scent to it, too, that still to this day reminds me of her a little bit. 

I wouldn't recommend the brush it comes with though. I never do with any cosmetic item. I like to use my own. Although this one would be ok with a really light or highlight color, it will just pick up too much product. 

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
