Summer is right around the corner. Which means for us Texans, it’s been here since January! So it’s time to take out all your Summer Makeup products! All those light weight foundations, water proof mascaras, and your summer glow highlighters! All your favorite brands are going to start coming out with summer themed makeup as well. So now’s the time to start stocking up on those new products because they WILL sell out! Which leads me to this post! Benefit Cosmetics has come out with two new beautiful summer products. They are called Galifornia Blush & Dandelion Twinkle.
I first saw the Galifornia blush on Makeup by Mario’s Instagram inside the cheek-a-thon palette. The Cheek-a-thon palette includes some bronzers, blushes, and one highlighter. It was quit tempting to pick up, but I already had the Hoola bronzer in a single and I really just wanted the blush! So when Ulta started carrying the blush in a single size it became fate. This Galifornia blush is by far my favorite blush of the year!! The packaging is so cute and speaks to Benefits uniqueness. You almost don’t want to even use the blush because the imprint on the inside is even prettier than the packaging. The blush itself almost reminds me of a duo chrome shade. It has hints of pink and orange with a little shimmer when you shine some light on it. So, as I am picking it up the ulta pro told me to smell it. If you can imagine summer in one scent this blush has it. Smells almost of coconut sunscreen which sounds awful but trust me, it’s not. Definitely recommending trying this the next time you go shopping.
On to the Dandelion Twinkle. To be honest I hadn’t heard much about this product so when I was picking up my Galifornia blush the Ulta pro told me to also smell the Dandelion. It has a nice smell, the galifornia blush is more my taste. Then I swatched it! It’s this beautiful, iridescent sheen highlight. Not very glittery but just a perfect added glow. So perfect for someone who isn’t as into highlighters or who doesn’t like their highlight to over power there face makeup. Very very beautiful! This would look great even on more mature skin because you wouldn’t be emphasizing or highlighting your wrinkles. You would just be enhancing.
So if you are going to a pool party, or even going to a festival, all you need are these two products. They compliment each other so well and just make you look naturally beautiful! The brush that comes with them are not my cup of tea, so I would use an angled blush brush to apply both products. This way they sort of melt in to your skin but also melt into each other. I’ve been wearing them every day and will continue to wear them this summer.
