Be A Snow Bunny With Benefit Feelin’ Dandy Lip & Cheek Kit.

Because I live in a country when the winter season is seemingly never ending, I had to find a way to love winter. Several years ago, I took up snowboarding and loved it. While the cold winter wind on the mountain slopes isn’t exactly comfortable, there’s no denying that the fresh pink cheeks I get from it is, well, pretty damn cute.

That’s me (one of the many times I was on my butt that day in Mt. Tremblant). :P

For those of you who are afraid of the cold or allergic to nature (I’m not judging) but still want that snow bunny glow, Benefit Feelin’ Dandy Lip & Cheek Kit ($32 at Sephora) might be for you. It includes:

  • PosieTint (4 ml) — pink lip & cheek stain
  • High Beam (4 ml) — liquid face luminizer
  • Dandelion (3 g) — blush
  • Ultra Plush Dandelion (6.5 ml) — lipgloss

The kit also comes with a mirror and a tear-off tips-and-tricks sheet if you’re not familiar with the products.

I already love PosieTint for years before this set came into my life. If you get over the fact that it looks like Pepto Bismol, this pink is perfect for perking up a dull complexion. High Beam is fantastic for highlighting the tops of the cheekbones with its micro-shimmer. I’m surprised that High Beam works well even on my darker skin tone. Dandelion is a very light pink that tones down the effect of PosieTint when layered. It applies sheerly and because it’s so light, it’s not my first choice for a blush on myself. It’s a great blush for a pale person, though! :P The Ultra Plush Dandelion lipgloss is also sheer with some shimmer, and the formula is wonderful: glides on almost like an oil that hugs the lips, and isn’t at all sticky. The only thing I hate about it is the smell; it smells like candy. I think it’s caramel candy? I just can’t stand it.

Despite the sweet lipgloss smell, I highly recommend this set. It provides such great value for $32. Perfect for gifting!

    Aww aren’t you the cutest snow bunny ever??? I regret not knowing anything about any snow sports (which is normal considering I’m from a subtropical country). Kinda wish I could still learn, but then again the chances of me breaking my legs are high so I’d better not!

      Thanks Sunny. :) Are there any mountain ranges that you can travel to? Snowboarding is just loads of fun!

  • JessicaGettingCheeky

    Absolutely adorable! It wouldn’t be hard to love winter if you got the “snow kissed” glow like that :) Despite my pale skin Dandelion never used to suit me … it just seemed SO pale, but coupled with Posie Tint it’s such a natural and lovely flush.

    You may just have changed my mind!

      Thanks Jessica. :) Also, thanks for chiming in about Dandelion. It is very pale. It’s nice to tone down the pink of PosieTint. Love love love the combo.

    YOU ARE SO ADORBS, ZOMG!!!

    *inhale*

    Posie Tint and Dandelion looks so good layered on top of each other. I really like the idea of the Benefit tints, I just can’t seem to find a good way to apply them. They never look as good or as even as I would like. =/

      I did two swipes of PosieTint here over well moisturized skin and a comfortable foundation (GA Maestro). PosieTint is more of a gel rather than liquid so it’s easier to blend than BeneTint. Hope you try it Dani. :)
