Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Ultra Plush Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Benefit's Dandelion Ultra Plush Lip Gloss was one of the items I won in the Klout Benefit #Curlfriends Contest. The only other lip gloss I've ever tried from Benefit was Coralista (2012). It was a really pretty, soft coral color on the lips. When I swatched Dandelion on the back of my hand, it looked peachy. When I applied it to my lips, it was a soft pink. That's why I appreciate when beauty bloggers show lip swatches, because swatches on the back of your hand can truly be deceptive. In bright sunlight, this lip gloss comes across clear. So there's definitely a play on color when it comes to this lip gloss. How does it feel? Pretty good. It's a little heavy for my taste, but I find it to be creamy & moisturizing. It has a delightfully sweet candy scent to it. It moisturized my lips for hours, before having to reapply. However, it's easily transferable on utensils, drinkware, food etc. The tube is small, but it's packed with product (you don't need much). So this will last for a VERY LONG TIME! I also love the angled applicator. Overall it's nice, but there's nothing about this lip gloss that has me swinging from the chandeliers or wanting another one. Maybe paired with the Dandelion blush, it would have a better affect. I was also given Sugarbomb and I think I'll like that one much better because of the color (we'll see). So those are my thoughts! Hope you're enjoying my Great Beauty Outdoors (but Indoors) Theme This Week :) Wish I had some dandelions nearby, to make a WISH! HaHaHa

Connie Bea said...

That shade is absolutely beautiful! It's a shame that it transfers so easily, though.

Nice review Kim! I agree that Glosses can be deceiving. I bet this would look pretty over top of a lipstick though, one with a lighter/sheer formula!

Shiny M said...

Maybe it would look great with the blush, though it looks great on you. It's a nice neutral pink on the lips, but a bit brighter on the back of the hand. I don't like heavy glosses either, so I'm with you there.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

This lip gloss you a really pretty lips but better look Kim! Good to hear it's so moisturizing but boo on on the product transfer.

Good review Kim, I am not such a gloss girl but i like the packaging of this one.


I am with you on the swatches, I always like to see different swatches too, especially on different skin tones, so that I can decide whether or not I will like it for me. Thanks for the lovely review Kim. /Madison

I agree that it does look different on your lips than on your hand. I think the color on your lips is much better. I've not tried this product. It sounds like a good lip gloss but I'm not much for lip gloss. I just feel like they make your lips slick and then get on everything your lips touch.

Thanks for testing out all the makeup and I loved this review from you! It looks pretty on you. This would be nice to bring to the beach!

Tina Bradley said...

It looks lovely on you, Kim! I've recently begun wearing lip gloss, again; myself--after receiving one in a Birchbox. It's a fun alternative to lipstick. T.

K / House of KTS said...

I couldn't wait for your reviews on Benefit and I absolutely loved this review. I was actually checking out this lipgloss, now I'm happy I never purchased it. Amazing review as always Kim :).

Emmylou said...

Kim, I think this actually really looks great on you. You're probably right thought that it might look better paired with the Dandelion blush, but on its own, it still looks fab:)

Nerline Germain said...

I don't like the issue with the transfer but it looks so good on you.

Ailany Zabidin | Urban Hippie KL said...

It looks so pretty though and the packaging is so cute!

Margo @ PrettyPanda said...

Thank you for the honest review! Pretty color but I kind of dislike thicker formulas so I will pass

Mica T said...

It is a cute little tube and a lovely colour on you, just a shame that it transfers so easily, you'd be re-applying it all day!

Looks gorgeous on you! I hate most lip-gloss because they begin to taste weird with an uncomfortable consistancy.

Angela Landskron said...

I don't own any blushes at the moment. I guess that's kind of weird, but they scare me because my cheeks are already a bit red from old acne scarring. Anyway, I've always wanted to try the Benefit Dandelion blush because it looks like a very light and lovely shade of pink. The Dandelion gloss looks very pretty and I agree that both hand and lip swatches are super helpful when deciding if a shade is really something you'd be interested in.

Lizzy Fresh said...

Ah I need to try more Benefit products! I'm not huge on lipgloss but I've been really wanting to try the matching blushes, Dandelion looks so soft and natural :D

Candice Petersen said...

Lovely review!!


Kizzy Von Doll said...

It looks great on you!! But, I'm the same if it feels even slightly heavy on my lips, I grab a tissue and take it off as I feel gross, haha. Super review :) x

Alice said...

i love the packaging and the color is so fresh!

It looks super cute on you Kim, is perfect with your colors! Im not into glosses as you know but one as this would be nice at the beach!:) xo

Diva Desle said...

It does look pretty on you Kim. Maybe it would last a little longer with a lip liner. Does it have a smell?

little luxury list said...

You're right - it's definitely a softer pink on the lips! It looks great though and so versatile!

Shireen L. Platt said...

Thank you for a honest review, Kim. I'm not a fan of gloss at all so tho product will definitely be giving this product a miss. I am giggling at the thought of you swinging from the chandelier though. Haha!

crafty-zone said...

This lip gloss looks great and even I'm more a fan of lipsticks than lip glosses in general, I really like that it lasts for a very long time :) It had to be great award, congrats Kim :)

Cee said...

There's lots of Benefit products I really love, but their lip glosses have never really gotten me excited - sounds like I'm not the only one :) Thanks for another great review, Kim!

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

I have not seen this brand in my city, I like to try, but honestly not use lip gloss.

Robin Hardeman said...

Good review, the color is really pretty but it does appear almost clear. I love an angled applicator too!

Miss Val's Creations said...

It looks beautiful on! I have learned to accept color transfer over he years. Those that don't transfer color seem to dry out for me fast!

Gabrielle said...

''Swining from the chandeliers'' - you do make me laugh, Kim! haha :) Personally, I think this lipgloss looks fabulous on you. You're quite right too, lip colours need to be shown on bloggers' lips or else they can appear incredibly different.. I'll start showing my reviews on my lips always from now on I think! :)

Pilar said...

Nice review Kim! I like this color of lip gloss, it can easily be worn over a lipstick as well!

Lorena said...

Too bad.. for some reason I am not attracted to this gloss tube packaging, sorry to hear it was bittersweet.

miss b said...

Another one of your helpful reviews, Kim! I agree that colour on the hand can be deceptive. This is a lovely summery shade and so glossy but disappointing that it transfers so easily. I'm gradually catching up on my blog reading after taking an unexpected break. I really must find time to start posting again too!!

Darcy said...

It looks like a pretty color! Im always amazed by how different a color looks on the back of a hand vs. the packaging vs. on the face!

Lauren Carter said...

This seems like one of those glosses that's not very special on its own but looks good over another lip product. It does look very nice on your lips.

jo said...

I remember receiving this in one of my beauty boxes. They're adorable!

xo Jo


That soft pink color looks really natural - totally my thing since I'm a fan of natural make up and lip gloss in general! Love to collect them! Haha! :-D
Dear Kim, what about testing blotting paper or did I missed a post... if so shame on me! ;-D


Coco said...

I understand why you gave it a bittersweet rating. Though it looks lovely on you, I know you prefer more pigmented shades, don't you? Much much love

Andro beast can't be used under a lot of scenarios. The best element regarding Andro beast is this. I will give you a checklist of items you need for Andro beast. There is an endless supply of Andro beast info. You can prioritized them if you wish, however that isn't really needed. Andro beast wasn't endangered by it. Realize that you are facing Andro beast that can come from many angles. Honestly, for a rookie like them, Andro beast still kind of hidden.Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.
I got that right on the nose. You might be thinking that about that topic. If only one person said that then maybe beast isn't this great.

My mind is flipping. There is nothing worse than a Andro beast this just sits there and does nothing. It would work if we had unlimited bandwidth. They can do it with Andro beast whenever they want. I was born with a silver fork in my mouth. I've been disappointed with Andro beast.It is how to stop yourself from worrying about your Andro beast.
