This is why I was skeptical about Benefit’s Dallas boxed powder/bronzer (or whatever you want to call it). Everyone loves it. And Everyone has a very different skin tone than mine. Still, my curiosity got the better of me and I found myself at Bloomie’s Benefit counter trying it on.
In my first try I had too much powder on the Benefit tester brush. It’s a thin brush with short, stiff bristles and no handle. It takes a moment to get used to, but as soon as I figured just how much Dallas to use and how to sweep it across my face there was magic. My nose and the area around have a bit of color at this point in the season (I should really be more diligent about sunscreen. I tan from standing by the window), so I just use it on my forehead and cheeks to complement my tan.
The color of Benefit Dallas is, indeed, a sun-kissed rose. It makes my skin glow in a healthy looking tan. Since getting Dallas I've been neglecting my other bronzers and blushes. I just sweep this and my face is done. I prefer to use better brushes with this product, but must admit that even the stiff brush that comes in the Benefit box delivers satisfactory results.
I have no idea how Dallas works for paler women with different undertones to their skin. All I know is that this Non-Blonde is hooked.
