Benefit Thrrrob Review

I got my Benefit Thrrob Powder ages ago and I’m finally reviewing it for you! YAY! Click here to read my original post about Benefit Thrrob Powder.

I have to give this powder a big Muse approval for purchase as I’m in love with it at the moment!

At first glance I was pretty disappointed for a few reasons. First of all it looks all too similar to the other love of my life, Dandelion, however I soon find out they are quite a deal different from one another. The second reason I was feeling disappointed was the powder was quite sheer when I first opened the box. Huge sighs of grief left my lips when I seen that the powder wasn’t as vibrantly pink as I had hoped!

When I seen this on the site I thought for sure this was the answer to my prayers for beautifully flushed cheeks but upon seeing the powder I thought for sure it was another big disappointment from Benefit! However, I take back all my negative thoughts after using it!

The powder is a beautiful silky texture with a touch of shimmer but as I said it’s a bit on the sheer side when you’re just glancing at it! However, after applying it to my cheeks I was delighted that the shade is deeper on, very beautiful, and natural! I actually tried it sans foundation and I found it gave me a lovely little glow of pink that was truly perfect!

If you’re in love with natural looking powders and blushes this would be something you’ll want! A little foundation, a little gloss, and some of this will give you a truly fresh, glowing look!

If you’re scared of shimmers, glitters, or sparkle you can rest easy as the shimmer in this is very subtle and barely noticeable!

First thing I did when I got this was take out my Dandelion and do the comparisons. I have to say that I do get almost the same look from Dandelion however with Thrrob I noticed that the color is slightly deeper and a bit more pink where as Dandelion is pink yet not as deep. I normally apply Dandelion over my blush and let it work it’s magic however I rarely wear it alone where as Thrrob can be used both under or without blush! Although Dandelion can certainly be used on it’s own I found that Thrrob gives a much more brighter look rather! I’m not particularly certain that Thrrob is anymore pigmented then Dandelion however it is a bit more vibrant but not overly so!

Where as Dandelion is a soft pale peachy pink, Thrrob is more of a true pink. Thrrob goes on as a reddish pink to me so you’re getting that “just out of the cold” look where as Dandelion you get more of a soft, highlighted glow.

Thrrob is $28 USD and available now directly from Sephora or Benefit Cosmetics.

Overall, I can definately give this a go ahead for purchase! I’m really loving it at the moment!

Benefit finally got it right this time and I’m happy to see a product I’m loving by them as it’s been ages since I purchased an item that I wasn’t a tad disappointed with!

Good job Benefit!

Benefit Thrrob is most definately Muse Approved for purchase!

Another Box of Goodies for the Muse from Taryn!

My reader and friend Taryn got a beautiful haul of goodies from JPMon a few weeks ago! I actually blogged about it, you can click here to refresh your memory and read about her haul!

One of the items she was very excited about was the Fairy Drops Mascara. I got hyped over this as well after seeing the unique brush it came with and was eager to do my own order!

Before I could do an order Taryn was offering up her extra mascara to me! *blush* She sent it over with a TON of extra goodies that totally made me sniff! She was amazingly generous and sweet to put such a lovely package together for me and I wanted to show off some of what she sent me!

All my awesome goodies!

Treats from Row

After getting back from the airport this morning, prior to heading to work, I hopped in the shower, got dressed, and sat down to sort mail!

Much to my surprise and delight a little parcel from England was in with the lot of boring bills, catalogs, and other garbage mail!

Hmmm what could this be!?

Tearing it open out poured a ton of great things! Lush soaps, Soap and Glory Lipgloss, Molton Brown Lotion, sweets, and much more!

Oh my it felt like Christmas!

I was particularly fixated on the rather large chunk of Lily Savon soap I was holding in my hand as I’ve been dying to try it and haven’t yet! It smelled so good that I held it to my nose during the duration of reading the card and letter tucked into the parcel!

Turns out my beautiful goodies was thanks to my most lovely mate Rowene.

So this is a HUGE thank you to a very gorgeous friend for making my day brighter when jet lag was setting in!

Your thoughtfulness totally made me happy!

I’m utterly chuffed to have great pieces of Lush Miranda and Lily Savon gracing my shower! I was so eager to use Lily Savon that I ended up washing my hands with it just so I could try it! I’m a big fan of Miranda and haven’t had any around in a good long while as mailorder UK has a knack for being out of stock everytime I order!

One item that happens to not be in the pic is the Boots Eye Gel she sent which is now totally rocking my world for depuffing my tired eyes today! I’ll be reviewing the lipgloss (been wanting to try Soap and Glory for AGESSSSSSSSSS), the soaps, and the eye gel very soon!

The card from Rows that’s gracing my fridge door! How cute!

The Curly Wurly soon disappeared after this pic! Both actually…and a little bit after that the Black Jack made an exit as well! My tummie is in heaven as I haven’t had a Curly Wurly in a good long while!

Sadly the sweets that the Muse sent to Row have been gobbled down by Row’s evil boyfriend! icon wink

Thanks Rows! I’m lucky to have such a great mate like you! You sincerely made my day with your sweetness!

*mwah*
