Benefit's Hello Flawless! is one of the best powder foundations I've tried. It is fairly expensive for my budget and I suggest looking for sales or coupons on it. I really like how much coverage it provides so I didn't have to apply a concealer underneath. I can just use the sponge and dab it onto any acne scars or marks that I have and do the rest of my face with a large powder brush. I didn't even bother with the small brush that comes with it.
It can be a little drying but nothing a little moisturizer beforehand can't fix. When I first tried it, I wasn't using a primer and with my oily skin tone, it would melt right off my face after about 2 hours. But I plan on using a primer beforehand now so hopefully it will hold. Otherwise, I love the flawless finish it leaves after applying and will purchase again!
I have this in 'cute as a bunny honey' (btw how adorable is that? :)
gosh ive already hit pan on two of these powders, i love this. i think this is a med-to full coverage but you can def. use just a bit and it'll look light and natural as well. works great as an undereye/redness concealer as well. i like this because it smoothes out my face for that matte yet pretty complexion, and isnt TOO matte for you to look too made up or chalky. the staying power isnt too great on my tzone, but i always touch up once a day with any other foundation so thats not a big issue for me. i use a fluffy brush to achieve that flawless look, easily!
For me this product did not work well:
-made me very shiny after and hour or two of wearing
- made my skin break out
- not too many shades to choose from, I think only about
- Transfers a bit
-great coverage, you can build it up and it looks very natural or have it be light
- feels like there isn't anything on
But even though it did not work for my skin type, I do like other BeneFit products. And I think this would work well for someone with normal and non problematic skin. I just have terrible combination skin, blah.
I absolutely love this powder foundation! It covers more than studio fix but doesn't accentuate fine lines like Studio Fix. I have rosacea and have to use powder foundations because liquids won't "stick" to my cheeks and this powder covers as well as my actual concealer. The compact is a little tricky to open sometimes, no big deal....and I would love a lighter more yellow based shade but I am making the champagne color work for me. Almost perfect, will definitely buy again.
Normally, I wait at least a week before leaving reviews on complexion products, but for this, I'll make an exception! I got this on Friday, and used it for the first time on Saturday, when I had a big party to go to and had to look glowing and gorgeous. This stuff covered up any remainder of pores that were left (after a Soap and Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth mask, Benefit's POREfessional, Erase Paste, and That Gal primer), stayed on all night, even when things got hot, and matches my skin tone to a T (Never Settle Petal). The formula is a velvety smooth powder that goes on so light, I don't even feel it on my skin, which is great, because I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who doesn't like the feeling of makeup on sitting heavy on my face. It takes down the shine and keeps the oily feeling at bay. And then removes easily at night. I use the sponge for all-over coverage, with a light hand, and then use the brush to touch up a little during the day. And if you don't think it's good after that, ask me about my mom's story with her Hello Flawless!. It's even more convincing. It's what convinced me! Another hit from Benefit.
I love this stuff. I use it every day over my bare escentuals skin rev-er upper and my moisturizer. It stays put pretty well all through the work day. I don't use the little brush it comes with just because I prefer my MAC brush. The price tag is heavy ($50 CDN!) but well worth it and lasts me a fairly long time. Would repurchase for sure!
I have been using this for two days and I'm in love! I put two layers on my face with the sponge and it gives me the same coverage as a liquid foundation. It doesn't look cakey at all. It just looks (and feels) like I have powder on my face.
For me this comes up really well against many of the other powder foundations i have tried over the years (NARS, MAC, Bellapiere, BE, Dior, Lancome). It lasts really well and provides a lovely matte finish. Good oil control too. One negative is that there isn't such a great choice of shades and the brush in the compact is a waste of time. On the whole i really like this foundation and would recommend.
This powder foundation is awesome! This gives you a beautiful matte finish, full coverage, and is long wearing and has good oil control. I would say this is definitely one of the BEST powder foundations out there, better than Laura Mercier, MAC, NARS, and tons more. The only bad thing about this is the shades are so limited, so not everyone can enjoy this product :( But if you find your shade match, you will love it!
I never thought I would like this as much as I do, but I wonít repurchase due to the fact that I canít find a perfect color match. I can make it work when used in conjunction with another product to balance the shade but for the price, there are better alternatives out there. This is a soft powder foundation that is workable and lasts all day, which truly does look flawless. It does however oxidize a lot so go for a shade lighter. This is the best powder foundation I have ever tried but the color range is so bad, there needs to be more yellow based shades at the lighter end. I fall between the first and second one, of which neither are yellow based, so if you are fussy about perfect match, then you must try this before buying. The casing is also hard to open, donít know why that is, but itís a pain which unnecessarily prevents it being as good as it is. Formula is great but product people have quite a bit of work to do on this, esp given the price.
