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.
I'm light skinned and have dark red acne scars and this covers them for the most part. Some of them are still visible but I've yet to find anything that will cover them, seriously, and I can't find a good concealer. But this powder is good if you use a moisturizer or primer underneath. The price is a little steep for me but I tried it out of a reccomendation from a friend, I really liked it at first but it ran out quickly (within a month) and when it got extremely humind outside my face turned into a mess. I've found that the brush that it comes with is not great, very prickly. I use my own brush and it works great...the sponge it comes with is good and does just what it says. Just a tip if you use the sponge make sure you're face is clean and free of oil to keep you're sponge lasting longer. Doubt I purchase again as it's just not worth it for me.
I love this pressed powder! it's super buildable; so depending on how much coverage i feel like using for the day- if i feel like going natural, if i feel like i want to hide something on my face- i can totally build it up/down. i just "pan-ned" and I'm a little sad about that. Yes, it is a bit expensive :( but, i believe it's totally worth it.
When the sales lady first applied this to my face, her partner working commented on how she couldn't even tell i had anything on. SO it's definitely natural looking. I haven't been able to make it look cakey, no matter how much i apply so...
WORTH THE PRICE! WILL REPURCHASE :)
This is as close to a HG foundation as I have come across! I bought the Champagne shade and it matches my fair skin perfectly, I don't really wear much coverage in the day so use the cute little brush for light app after Boi-ing concealer, for heavier coverage and nights out I use the sponge and this blends beautifully. I set with Urban Decay Razor Sharp and good to go! I love this foundation so much! Try it, but get a colour match first x
I wanted to really like this foundation (the sales lady of course said it was the best ever!). I got it in "never settle" petal and it ended up being a little too dark and orangey on my skin. It goes on pretty silky and smooth but after a couple hours my skin was really shiny (although my t-zone is fairly oily in general). It also gets used up really fast. I used it for probably 2 months, and it was over half gone. I thought this was too expensive for a foundation. Maybe someone with normal/dry skin would like it better. One good thing was it didn't seem to cake much on me and I have combo skin.
I have been pleasantly surprised with Benefit products. Hello Flawless is my latest find and I am really happy I did! I use it to set the You Rebel Lite with a kabuki and less really is more. It does not have a powder look to it and seems to just set into my skin. I'm using Champange and it is fine on my super fair skin. I am excited to continue experimenting with more ways to use this product!
