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.
