The Rankings

Benefit Cosmetics Box o' Powder in Dandelion
Rank & Style Approved


Benefit Cosmetics Box o' Powder in Dandelion

BEST FOR: A shimmery, satiny pink blush that is perfect for brightening up anyone's complexion, especially those with pale or fair skin.

USERS SAID: "I cannot live without this powder! It is the perfect pink tone on my fair skin, and even in the summer months when I have a little bit of color, it compliments my shade. I love the light, porcelain effect, and it is instantly brightening. BUY IT!"

Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush in Rose Petal

LOVED FOR: This lightweight blush feels like a powder but melts into the skin like a cream.

USERS SAID: "I have fair skin, but there is already a lot of pink/red in my coloring so pinks and reds do nothing for me. This is more of a light warm coral color, and because of it's texture you can apply it heavily or lightly. It is very flattering for my skin color. Sometimes I add a little to my lips and the very tip of my nose, too."

BareMinerals Gen Nude Powder Blush in Pretty in Pink

BEST FOR: If you're careful about the ingredients you put on your body, you'll love this good-for-your-skin formula.

LOVED FOR: The cushiony-texture creates a natural color that is easy to blend and build up if desired. 

Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink

BEST FOR: The perfect mix of matte and shimmer 

USERS SAID: "I have very fair skin (fair enough that I can use baby powder as face powder), and the peachy pink shade of this blush looks very natural. It adds a nice, fresh glow. I would order this again."

Fenty Beauty Match Stix Skinstick in Yacht Lyfe

BEST FOR: This long-wearing stick blush is ideal for creating a look on the fly.

USERS SAID: "Fenty, where have you been all my lyfe? The color, is fabulous. You don't even need a highlighter with this, it's a blush and highlighter in one. So shimmery, when it catches in the sun, it's just so pretty I'm obsessed. The application has a powder finish, compared to most blush sticks this is not sticky at all. I do suggest blending with a highlighter brush instead of your fingers."

Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink

WHY YOU NEED IT: The color helps to mimic your cheeks to give you the perfect flushed look.

USERS SAID: "This color is the most flattering and beautiful blush I have ever worn. I have light skin, and it can be pale in the winter. This color makes me look youthful and pretty."

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Dollface

BEST FOR: A blush the last all day and night—no reapplies here!

FUN FACT: This formulated is with Micronized Amazonian clay which helps control oil and infuse moisture for balanced skin and seamless blending.

Nars Dual Intensity Blush in Adoration

HELPFUL TIP: You can use this formula both wet or dry.

USERS SAID: "Is silky and smooth. I mix both shades together to get the perfect dewy highlight. It is beautiful!! I own so many highlights and some are just too much, too much glitter and shimmer. This one is the perfect glow. I get so many compliments and it doesn't over power the rest of my makeup."

Nars Blush in Orgasm

BEST FOR: A universally flattering pink

USERS SAID: "The colour is stunning and the tiny bit of shimmer makes the cheekbones stand out in a wonderful way. Not only is this blush easy to blend, it lasts for hours and hours! I have had so many compliments on my "glowing" skin ever since I started using this. Definitely worth buying." 

Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff

USERS SAID: "I am absolutely in love with this! I use this pretty much every day now regardless of what type of makeup look I'm going for – or when I'm wearing very little. It has a subtle smell to it which I like, and it glides onto the skin so effortlessly– blending it is a dream!" 

FUN FACT: This cult-favorite product is hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, and cruelty-free.
