Benefit Thrrrob Review

I was so excited when I got my latest Sephora catalog with Beauty As Art as the theme. Flipping though I saw so many products I couldn't wait to try! Traci Anne and I exchanged no less than 20 emails discussing my order!

Benefit's Dandelion is a product that's been around for a few years, and is one of my HG blushes. It's actually marketed as a highlighter, but if you are PDP (pretty damn pale) like me, it works fab as a blush.

Slightly shimmery, but not too much so, this gives me that radiant "flush" that looks so natural. It also had the slightest rose fragrance which sounds yucky but is actually quite nice. It's a little pricey at $28, but it lasts absolutely forever. In fact, I threw out my last container because I'd had it way longer than cosmetically safe.

So when I saw Benefit had a new product called Thrrrob, I knew I had to have it. I think it's actually a little more lilac than the above pic represents, but still in the pink family. I've been alternating between the two for the past two days and like them equally well.

Thrrrob is a little darker and has a bit more shimmer. It's pricing is the same as Dandelion, $28.

If you are PDP, go for it. Any darker than that and these may not work as blushes for you. I read several reviews on Makup Alley stating the products didn't show up, and I suspect these ladies were darker complected than I am.

In the next few days, I'll be posting some reviews of some new lips stains from my order, some of the new mood lip glosses (including O Gloss) and even some reviews of past lip stains I've tried! Stay tuned!
