Really, Benefit? Really?
I don't get this product. I understand it's supposed to provide a light coverage and look natural, and their catalog even plugs it for use when you don't feel up to putting on your regular makeup.
By the time I apply this and blend and blend and blend to get any type of coverage whatsoever, it's as time-consuming as just sucking it up and using my regular foundation, so what's the point?
I usually love Benefit products but this one...ummm, not so much. Glad I only got it as 1 in a 4-piece set, because I'd have been extremely disappointed to have purchased a full-sized product.
Maybe if one has perfect skin this would be a great "non-foundation foundation," but for me I'll stick with my regular foundation.
This stuff seemed nice and light when I first started using it. After a couple uses it broke me out like crazy.....can't use it anymore. I don't like the sponge it came with either....it started to smell after a couple uses....gross. Does anyone else just WANT to like all of Benefit's products but keep getting disappointed over and over again??? :(
I am not one to wear foundation on a daily basis because I am scared to look cakey. I told the saleswoman this and she pointed this foundation out, so i decided to give it a try. It goes on light, and looks so natural. I have sensitive skin but even when I wear this foundation all day, my skin is fine. I totally recommend this to anyone who is looking for light, natural looking products. No need to be scared of breakouts either! Will definitely be buying again.
Tacky packaging, looks like toy makeup. The one color suits all is rubbish, it was way too yellow and dark for my complexion. It caked up quite alot and my skin felt like melted rubber the whole day through
I truly liked the consistency of this product but it just didn't work for me. The color was never right even though I tried this one and the "light" version. It didn't give good coverage either even after attempting to build it up. If the color suits you and you dont need much coverage this may be for you it just didnt work for me.
I love that creamy luminous smooth look for my skin as opposed to matte (most people prefer matte for some reason and in my opinions it makes skin look older and cakey and bigger)... anyway, so when I put this on my skin the first time (my skin was well moisturized) it was so smooth and creamy with a slight glow and it was great...and I bought it (shoulda tried it first and then went back to buy it like I usually do) and then as days went on I would get lots of breakouts around my mouth and chin area. I thought maybe the DIFFERIN GEL (retina-a product) was makin me purge but that would usually happen overnight after I apply it...
This foundation was basically making my blemishes worse.. I have very sensitive, hormonal acne-prone skin with redness..... this looked great on but one I took it off my skin was worse..... not good for sensitive skin as it contains silicone that blocks the pores in my opinion and thats why it looks smooth when you put it on..... so this is a noohoo no no no for me....
I hate this. I bought this on my 13th birthday at Macy's. The makeup artist tried this on my cheek and it looked okay, but I really needed a foundation at the time, so I bought it. The day after, I tried it and it was cakey as ***! It's also so greasy that my face looked better without any foundation on! Even worse, the color doesn't show up on my face, since it's probably not my shade -- there are only three. If you have overly dry skin, and actually match the color shades, that's one thing, but you also need a foundation brush to apply this. I literally couldn't get enough out with my fingers. Even if you did have a foundation brush, it would still be really really sheer, and would take FOREVER to apply. On another note, the packaging totally sucks! Cheap plastic case that doesn't even open without multiple tries half the time, and the other half being that you actidentally open the bottom with the sponge instead of the foundation. I am very dissapointed with this product, for I usually get really good resuts from benefit! I strongly recommend not getting this, because you could get so much more out of $28!
This product is sold for WAY more than it should be, quality wise. I find that this makes my skin look very unnatural and greasy. The color isn't very flattering, yet they claim it will match most skin tones, not to mention it gives horrible coverage.
Don't waste your money like I did. Take it from me; this is NOT a good product.
Uncomfortably greasy feel. Slides off, so nada for coverage. I used to like Benefit, but lately the products are much more miss than hit and way overpriced for what you get.
Packaging was cute tho.
