I liked the idea of this product better than the product itself. It seemed like I had to use so much product and I still couldn't get the coverage I needed no matter how much I used. I broke out badly after I started to use this product, but I still haven't figured out if this foundation is to blame because I was using a new moisturizer as well. Others have claimed that they broke out from this so I wouldn't doubt if it clogs your pores. The product seems to be drying as well, around my nose would start to peel every time I wore it. I don't normally have problems dry skin, my skin is oily. The product starts as a cream and dries to a powder. Unfortunately, if I wanted to put my Smashbox Halo powder on over top then the foundation would come right off. The only thing I really liked about this foundation is that it matched my color well, which is difficult to achieve with a foundation that claims to match any skin tone. Its a shame that it matched my shade but didn't have the coverage and the stay power that I prefer. That being said, its pretty much useless to me. I don't think that this product is worth the money at all because you get very little product for the amount you have to use. Needless to say, I would not purchase this product again.
okay, soo, i know this product is supposed to look as though your not wearing foundation... it does what it says... BUT it basically disappeared on my skin!! yes i looked like i wasnt wearing foundation, cause it did not cover anything. the product is very light, very silk, nice texture.. but if you are needing something that covers... i do NOT recommend this product. i wouldnt buy again... not for the price.. or even if it was a drug store product! BeneFit did not impress me here!
It did match my skin color.
It gives a really natural finish, it's lightweight and easy to apply.
Good for everyday use.
already using my second one... creamy and light. good for natural look
I am looking for a good cream foundation, however this is not it. The coverage is horrible and it contributes to the oiliness of my skin. I returned it...
Ugh...what a joke. I got this at sephora around Oct. 1st after wandering around the store trying to resist buying UD BOS3. I decided to buy a powder foundation but could not decide what to get. I tried SkAG and was really amazed as to how the medium colour was able to match my skin. It looks greasy but it looked good on skin. I am not bit*ing about the quality of the product. It is okay although the staying power could be better. I apply with Sonya Kashuk sponge and am able to blend it well.
So here is my problem, liquid foundations last me a loong loong time, to the point where I have to throw them away for fear of expired product messing with my skin. I certainly have not used this product every day, maybe 15times for the 45 days I've owned it and today I hit pan!!!! I have product around the edges but what...that's gonna last me another 15applications. Are you freaking kidding me??? I paid $28 +tax for this. I would have been better off shelling extra $ for a fancier product like Channel or GA, it would have been cheaper compared to this.
Benefit is a seriously disappointing brand of cosmetics. It's cute and funky but so not functional and worth the money. Beware, do not waste money on this product!
This broke me out only after a few uses so I suspect that it clogs pores. It is really unfortunate because I absolutely love the finish of this. It goes on creamy, blends like a dream without feeling cakey, and dries to a powdery finish. It also lasts well throughout the day. The medium shade is a perfect match for my NC35 medium tanned skin. I also liked that I did not need concealer, and found that it was a great all-in-one product.
The downpoints about this foundation is that 1) It is pricey and the product gets used up really fast. You don't get a lot of product for the price. 2) It is a plasticky/latex smell but this goes away quickly. 3) If you have sensitive skin, it may break you out.
If you are unsure about this product, Sephora sells a mini sized sample for $12 CAD which is a great trial product that will last for weeks. It is also great as a portable compact to keep in the purse but I think it is only available for a limited time.
I am surprised at all the negative reviews. I LOVE this product. I like the finish, color match, and light coverage it provides. I'm a combo-skin girl with some enlarged pores and redness issues, and this makes me look presentable.
Here's my tried and true routine:
-Murad oil control mattifier spf 15
-Stila One Step Correct (Primer)
-Benefit Some Kind-A Gorgeous
-Benefit Boi-oing Concealer (great for oily gals)
-Benefit Hello Flawless in (T-zone only)
I've this product for a few years but hardly wore it as it always seemed to cake around my dry areas and accentuate them when I used the sponge. A few days I was reading reviews on here and decided to try applying it with a foundation brush. Wow what a difference it makes!!
Upon application it seems a bit greasy and kinda light for my skin tone. After about 5 minutes, the product sinks in and matches great. I think it gives good coverage and I like how it feels like you have nothing on your face once it settles in.
Once the product dries on my face, I lightly dust over some powder, I tried it with Dandelion and it looked amazing!! So flawless and pretty. I would never had expected to have such a great result especially since I really don't think Dandelion works on my skin, but paired with this 'foundation' it's amazing. So happy I actually found a use for these products, I really thought they would just end up sitting in my make up stash for the next decade (I couldn't bring myself to get rid of these since I spent soo much on them, and I'm really glad I hadn't now that I found how to use them :)).
Okay! I am not impressed with the packaging! But omg I do love this product, I can't believe all the negative reviews, this is so amazing to me , it feels great and covers good without even looking like you have foundation on!!
