Benefit Feelin’ Dandy Lip & Cheek Kit Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

How am I? I’m feeling quite dandy today!

Not only am I wearing the Benefit Feelin’ Dandy Lip & Cheek Kit ($28) but I also had a rather great day overall. Work was rather fab as we underwrote over 40 vehicles today for a few new corporations, dinner was fab as I had my favorite dish, grilled chicken Caesar salad, my evening is fab as I’m catching up on Teen Wolf at the moment (didya know Dylan O’Brien is on Twitter? I heart!), and yes my makeup is just dandy courtesy this cute new lip and cheek kit from Benefit.

Life is good, as always.

Take a look at the Feelin’ Dandy Lip & Cheek Kit, I think you’ll likey!

Take all your favs along with you for the ride with this new Benefit Feelin’ Dandy Lip & Cheek Kit. This contains an assortment of Benefit cult favs in a range of natural pink shades suitable for a fresh, no makeup look!

You get pocket size favorites of Benefit Posietint for creating a flush of natural pink on cheeks. Benefit High Beam for creating a natural glow on your face and cheeks. And of course, your look wouldn’t be complete without a little swipe of Benefit Dandelion Powder and new Ultra Plush Gloss in Dandelion.

The flip top, sturdy cardboard box makes it easy to tote around your essentials and a full size mirror and how to get the look guide helps you easily achieve a natural, fresh faced beauty look in a few seconds.

I like the kit because it boasts all the great things we love about a naturally almost makeup free look. Pink cheeks, nude lips, a pretty flush of color that isn’t overly done.

This kit does gear towards the fairer, medium skin types but no worries Benefit also has a Go TropiCORAL Lip & Cheek Kit for the darker skin ladies!

Gotta say I love this one. It’s perfect for travel…gym bags, desk drawer, or just for the days you really can’t be bothered to do a full makeup look.

Simple, easy, effortless beauty (just cut me a break as I didn’t have time for BB Cream or concealer in my photo above but I am wearing everything in this kit).

Who doesn’t love simplicity?

Available now at Sephora and or get it at

Anyone pick it up?

Love what’s included?

Dandelion fans?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

  • Cindy

    Benefit always gets me with their cute packaging… this is just adorable!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Very cute packaging indeed. And I like what’s in it. I like the shades alot. Enough color but still subtle.

  • Kim

    I’m fair but Dandelion and Posie Tint just disappear on me. I like High Beam tho.

    • the Muse

      if you layer dandelion over posietint it’ll intensify the shade ;D


    Love your positive attitude Muse!! 🙂 You look great with the feelin dandy on!

  • caroline

    I love these and would totally get them all but I have all their blushes. I mainly want the tints and gloss. Blushes are awesome though.

  • Kelly-Ann Thompson

  • Lauren

    I just saw there’s one called “Sugarlicious” too! God, I love a kit. 🙂 What did/would you for the eyes?

  • Peachy

    What an adorable kit! I can’t wait to get my hands on the coral version!!

  • Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    These kits are so adorable! I think they’re really awesome and the price isn’t bad either! Those 2 mini jars of the tint and highlighter will STILL last anyone a LONG long time, and a full size gloss? So awesome. Plus who doesn’t love Dandelion powder? I love these kits from Benefit–I think they do such a great job with them. I really want to try the Coralista version of this

  • Samantha

    Great review! I think I’ve found my next buy and just so you know you also don’t need the BB cream or concealer. You look lovely as ever! 🙂

  • Maria

    I love dandelion 🙂
    I’d love to try high beam. I saw someone wear MAC Whisper of Gilt over it and it looked amazing… JLO glow.

  • sofia

  • PediSpin

    It’s awsome that these products are so easy to take on-the-go, thanks for sharing some new make up inspiration.

  • Laci

    haha girl you always say that you’re not wearing conecealer or foundation, but your skin is flawless, so don’t even worry 🙂

    your reviews are so helpful, i love all your tips and swatches!

    • the Muse

  • Mairi

    Trying to pick out one of these Benefit kits as a birthday treat for myself… ORZ so indecisive, they all look great!

  • Catalina

    Hello! I have this palette and I love it! Especially the dandelion blush, which I find simply perfect for my pale skin. I would have bought it separately, but they don’t sell it anymore where I live (only this shade, I don’t understand why) and I also switched to bio skincare and make up, and I wish to change it to something with no silicones, perfume, preservatives. I wanted to kindly ask you, as you know so much about make up, if you know a dupe (something like everyday minerals, or bare minerals, lavera, benecos, clinique) that could help me replace it. All the best!
