Did you ever notice that Benefit are one of the few brands not to go all out on highlight and strobe? Their original liquid High Beam was one of the first of its kind – a light blast in liquid. But, looking at Too Faced, Becca and all the other brands that are melting unicorns left, right and centre, Benefit is the one that isn’t. I say that, but the forthcoming Benefit Dandelion Twinkle which is a peachy gold shimmer powder blend exactly right for light onto cheekbones without being overly metallic.
Benefit Dandelion Twinkle is also perfect for paler tones – in fact, I’d recommend it more for light skin than dark I think. The shade is super-light and shows as a mildly peachy-pink nuance with a gold shift.
So wait, two products for paler tones? When it’s hard enough to find one? Well, yes… Hula Lite is launching and it’s your decaff latte to everyone else’s espresso. On my skin, it barely shows (I have Mediterranean tones) but it’s designed to put warmth on super light skin, not warmth on warm skin.
It’s also completely matte, so if you’re feeling flush you can bronze or warm your tone with Hula Lite and then highlight with Dandelion Twinkle. They should have made a duo really – will you tell them, or shall I?
I really don’t have the right light for Twinkle here, that’s looking distinctly un-twinkly but it is there I promise! Although both these have launched in the US (along with a new Contour Stick), I don’t have an exact landing date for the UK, or prices. I’ll update when I do.
