Can't Live Without: Benefit Dandelion Blush

I thought I'd continue the 'Can't Live Without' trend by doing a post of my own!

One of the essentials in my make up bag is Dandelion by Benefit. It's a pale pink powder which comes in a beautiful box (which Includes a great mini blusher brush).

As you can see, I have 2. One of them has nearly run out though so I keep that in my car for make-up emergencies! Isn't the packaging so pretty?

Benefit say: 'Dandelion. Finely spun with delicate mauves and pinks, this exquisite brightening face powder leaves a petal like finish'

It's a very delicate pink colour which looks great on people with pale skin like mine. The brush is the perfect size and holds just the right amount of powder.

The result? A very light pink blush that lasts all day.

(edit: Sorry for the horribly posy picture, I'm literally the most unphotogenic person ever! and sorry for the overgrown fringe. It's normally straight across but my hairdresses couldn't fit me in till the 21st of August so It's going to keep getting longer and more annoying for a while!)

I've been using this powder for over 2 years now and I haven't found anything I've liked more! I tend to find cremes to thick on my skin and stains tend to be a bit too pink/red! I like that it looks like quite a natural blush, and the brush that comes with it makes it almost impossible to overload on it!

At £23.50 it's got quite a hefty price tag, however you do get an awful lot of it. It took me nearly 18 months of daily usage to run out of one box (That's like 0.053p a day!)

Which blushes would you recommend? What products can you 'not live without'?
