I guess this is OKish... First of all: if you thing you are light skinned do not believe the sales person who says you have "warm" tones... It may look good under those intense lights and applied by a professional, but for us common mortals it is best to go to the lightest shade you believe is kind of your colour and latter darken it with bronzer, than wearing a dark mask (I stole this concept from the very wise make up artist Wayne, aka gossmakeupartist on Youtube). Apart from being the wrong colour, for the reasons aforementioned, it just feels cheap on your face. I can still use it (being very careful), but... I feel like I'm wearing something I bought at the chinese store down town... The packaging is cute, as always... but a cute box isn't worth 30 Euros... Sorry... I don't hate it, I just don't think it belongs on the "high end" description.
not the best product at controling oil but the coverage is great. i used this over a tinted light weight makeup and it looked really nice for the first few hours but then it went shinny (thats probably because of my oily skin type but i was still pretty let down by the poor oil control. i had high hopes for such a expensive product but never mind........i think i'll go for less expensive makeup next time and stop wasting my money
I bought this product when I was nice and tanned in the summer, however it wasn't all it cracked up to be.
I thought that it looked patchy on my combination skin, it caught the oil and sat on the dry skin.
On the other hand, the coverage was pretty even and the colour matched well, but it didn't last as long as I'd hoped (bearing in mind I don't tend to cake on my make up either!).
I would like to say i'd buy this product again, but for the price I just can't justify it.
Wow!! Hello Flawless is amazing. Very good "flawless" coverage. I've been using this with That Gal primer, and a Benefit stick foundation and it's just beautiful. I have oily skin and i'm having to blot by midday but this is great. Will definatley buy again.
Love this powder,it has good coverage,did not break me out. Just wish it lasted a bit longer!
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.
