MY OPINION
I already own a mini Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Coralista. It is amongst my most reached out lip glosses and despite the price I might repurchase it.

So now I have another shade to add to that collection – Dandelion. Dandelion is a pearly peachy-pink sheer lip gloss with silver shimmer.  The shimmer is visible, as you can see in my swatch but not over-the-top, not gritty and not unflattering as some glitter/shimmer lip glosses are on me. The formula is non-sticky, very weightless and also hydrating.  It lasts an hour or so on my lips.

The lip gloss comes in a squeeze tube, something which I am not really fond of but since the colours are very sheer there is a lesser chance of you not being able to achieve precision with the slanted tip. The packaging is super adorable, very fun. And they have a very fresh fruity scent which I really, really love.

For around 18 bucks, Dandelion is very sheer for my taste. Personally I would never spend so much on a nude lip gloss. If you really want to give these glosses a try, Coralista or Bella Bamba or any darker Ultra Plush Lip Gloss would be worth the pennies spent.

MY RATING


I really love the Ultra Plush Lip Glosses, but the shade Dandelion is not my cup of tea, way too nude to spend 18 euros on.  Although I would definitely recommend the shade Coralista, reviewed here.

  7. So true for me, not into nudes plus this looks too shimmery and glittery for my liking.

  13. I feel the same way, I'm always so tempted to try high end glosses but the price always stops me!
