Benefit Dandelion Shy Beam

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and have had a wonderful weekend. I've been a little absent from the blogging scene for a few weeks now but I am back in full force ready to share some amazing products, collaborations and rambles with you all. If you ever wonder what I'm up to behind the blog then don't forget I am always active on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. So, if you do follow my various social channels then you would have seen that I had the pleasure of attending the London Benefit launch for their new Brow Collection on the Good Ship Benefit. I will be reviewing the collection and talking you through the entire event really soon but honestly, you are all going to be blown away by this magical collection!

Now, I find myself declining so many events these days due to work commitments outside of my blog and also because attending an event can be quite daunting in general, especially if you are going alone! I'm not the most confident person and I do get anxious but I am so glad that I decided to push myself and attend this incredible launch. I saw some familiar faces and I made some new benebabe buddies too. I walked away super motivated after attending the event that I thought I would jump back in with a Benefit review! Benefit have been going full speed with some incredible releases during 2016 and we are not even half way through the year yet. Benefit have always been a brand that has stood out to me and I have loved their overall ethos and product range for as long as I can naturally it is always extremely exciting when they launch something new. If you are a huge Dandelion fan like I am then you are going to love this product.

So, Dandelion Shy Beam* is the newest edition to the Benefit Dandelion collection and I have fallen head over heels for it...and not just because it's rose gold haha. Just like High Beam, Sun Beam, Benetint, Posietint, Chachatint and Lollitint the brand new Dandelion Shy Beam comes in the exact same nail polish-esque packaging with a rose gold twist. You all know how much I love rose gold so that get's a 10/10 from me! It also includes the classic slim brush applicator that helps you apply the perfect amount of product that can then be blended out with your finger or a brush of choice. Essentially this is a nude pink matte-radiant highlighter that creates a delicate radiance to the skin. The formula has been carefully chosen to allow you to highlight and sculpt without the shine, enhancing the look of cheekbones and giving you that lifted look to the eye.

Overall, I am completely hooked on this product and I have been reaching for it a lot recently. I have been using it within my highlighting routine in replace of my light concealer shades to brighten under my eyes, down my nose, in the center of my forehead and on my chin. I also set my cheekbones with my beloved Dandelion box blush to enhance that natural rosy glow. I also love the combination of the matte pink hues alongside Benefit Hoola - the perfect summer duo that I will be adding to my vacation makeup bag and summer beauty routine for sure.

Dandelion Shy Beam is available to purchase in stores and online now and retails for £19.50*.

I hope you all enjoyed hearing about this fabulous new Benefit product, I would love to hear your thoughts about it! Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want to chat you can contact me on my social media or you can leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to read every single comment...they honestly make my day!
