I didn’t need more highlighters, I surely know that but I wanted this one for years so I decided to get it for my birthday, this is the Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Highlighter.
Back when the Fenty came out I compared one of their highlighter (the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo in Lightning Dust/Fire Crystal) to this one and decided to get that one instead and I love it but since I love it, I thought I could get this one as well.
If you love a bold highlighter look away, this is not bold at all. It’s more of a soft delicate sheen that I prefer for every day.
You can get it here for 29$.
The packaging is standard for Benefit blushes: is a bulky cardboard box, I’m not a fan of that, it takes so much space in my make up bag and it’s a bit tacky: I usually prefer more of sleek packaging but that’s totally personal preference.
I like the way it’s decorated though, the rosegold shiny box is so pretty and of course, I love the pink.
On the inside, you have that handy little mirror and It also comes with a brush which it’s very soft and I love to use it for contouring. Not necessary but it’s nice.
It smells so GOOD. It’s more of a perfume but it’s so good. I don’t know what it is but it reminds me of my childhood. I love it.
It’s is a light, nude pink with a pearly sheen. It’s quite luminous very delicate and not blinding at all. So if you like an intense glow this is not the product for you.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
The formula is quite stiff in the pan, but that doesn’t make the highlighter less smooth.
It has a sheer coverage but it’s really easy to layer, I love it for everyday looks since it doesn’t look tacky.
It never looks cakey or powdery, it doesn’t enhance texture and pores despite the gold shimmer.
It’s really easy to apply, it looks so beautiful on the skin.
I compared the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo in Lightning Dust with Benefit Dandelion Twinkle, they are identical, that being said, I think the Fenty one it’s a better value for money and I like the packaging better.
On me it lasts around 5 hours before starting to fade.

GRADE: B +
I really like this highlighter. I love the colour. I think it suits my complexion a lot better than the more champagne ones. I love the scent, which is so not important but I love it. It applies and looks beautiful on the skin. I’m not the biggest fan of the packaging and I think the lasting power could be better but I’m still happy to have it in my collection. Definitely a nice product if you want something more delicate for everyday.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
