When I was growing up in the 80s and listening to hip hop in the ‘burbs, I totally wanted a pony. In terms of transportation, I figured a pony would be soooo much cooler (and much more interactive) than my yellow bike with the banana seat. My bike was a’ight, but a pony would have been able to jump fences when I needed to escape the playground bully (let’s call her Tammy… B*tch, you know who you are!).
I never got the pony, but I think that wanting one partly explains why I like Benefit’s Dallas blush ($28).
Look at the cute box it comes in! I could have been that girl riding the pony, le sigh!
Dallas comes with a small, flat brush with a wooden handle. The wearable color would have made it great to take on vacay if the box had been better constructed for travel. It’s just cardboard and doesn’t snap shut. I could see it withstanding a brief Tabs attack (he’s been into swiping at stuff lately), but it might not do well stored in a checked bag or casually dropped into a big purse.
I really like how pretty the color looks and how it goes with almost everything. For the past few days, I’ve been doing minimal makeup for work, and to give my cheeks a quick, peachy flush, I’ve dusted them with two layers of Dallas.

Despite wanting a sturdier box, I really like Dallas blush a lot. I’m giving her prime retail space on top of my dresser so she’s available when I need quick color on my cheeks before running out the door.
Agghhhhh! This week is dragging. I have so much crap to get done tonight, but all I really want to do is wrap myself up in a blanket on the couch, eat a Cup O’ Noodles for dinner and watch Sex and the City DVDs.
How are things with you? What was the highlight of your day?
