My sister-in-law got me a holiday gift set for Christmas and this came in the set in medium. I don't use foundation, just a tinted moisturizer. So I tried this over my regular Oil of Olay moisturizer and it was alright. The coverage is sheer, which is how I want it. Its easy to apply, I used a stippling brush and it blends very well. It disappears into your skin almost instantly. It doesn't feel heavy at all and when you touch your skin after application it feels very nice and smooth. However, it doesn't really do anything. It didn't change my life or anything. The packaging is insanely cute though. But for the price? I feel like it should at least do something!! So I will not be re-purchasing.
I'm a bit iffy with this product. I'm kind of in denial, it was really expensive so I don't want to say it's not good because that would be a total waste of money. It's just okay. The first problem I have with it is that I don't know how to apply it, the sponge it comes with doesn't really put it on properly, it's the same for my fingers and the foundation brush I have. It's not as good as it should be for the price. On the plus side it doesn't break me out, and it's one of the smoothest foundations I've ever seen! The packaging is gorgeous. I wont be buying it again but all the same I'm going to try and get the best out of it. :-)
A truly terrible product! oil free yet greasy feel on skin. coverage = 0. Product ran out for me in 3 weeks. So an expensive product in that respect. I love the retro packaging but if your looking for a quality product, don't part with your pennies on this one.
I will not be repurchasing x
I brought this product today, i love the finishing off this foundation and it feels very light for my skin. I usually wear no make up or minimal, so this is perfect just to make my skin look a little more smooth and to even out skin tone. I would buy this product again nice work Benefit ^^
I bought this product about a year ago when I had bad acne thinking that the creamy consistancy would cover up all of my blemishes. I used to applicator it came with and I was very disappointed.Since then, my skin has cleared up, so I tried using this foundation the other day and haven't stopped using it since. Instead, I used a stippling brush and stippled it all over my face, concentrating the product on any scarring and I loved the finish.
I was really suprised to see reviews saying it wasn't at all for dry skin. When I use it, my face does wind up feeling like a greaseball when normally it doesn't, so I have to make sure that I set it with powder. For me, it leaves a really natural, dewy finish. The only problem is that it doesn't adjust to my skin color as the claimed. It stayed about a shade darker than my skin and as it oxidizes it seems to darken a bit more, so I have to follow the foundation down my neck as well.
Overall, I probably would get it again if my skin stays clear and doesn't need much coverage.
I just brought this in travel size for 9 dollars at Sephora. I think it would be a good product if you have oily skin type. For my dry/combination skin, it really helps hiding my big pores on my T-zone, but it also caused my skin to flake in my cheeks and it stuck to the lines under my eyes. So, I would not buy it again.
I tried experimenting with this a few times but I wouldn't recommend it for people with dry/combination skin. I think if you have perfect skin it will work really well evening out the color of your skin. But if you have redness, acne, or blemishes, this foundation will have little coverage and you'll end up using a lot of concealer to attempt a perfect face. It goes on smooth, but ends up caking and drying quickly. I guess it's good on the go or if you're planning to stay the night somewhere and aren't taking a makeup bag with you. Good for touch-ups, not as a foundation.
I really enjoy using this product. Granted, it's very light coverage and my skin needs a little more so I do use a powder over it (Merle Norman Luxiva Powder Foundation). But, it's a great base and smoother. That's really what I love about Benefit products, in general. They can help you fake it even if you're having some skin issues (dryness, splotchiness, redness, etc). This is a great smoother, but not a standalone for me. I still really like it.
Incredible! I know it's a foundation faker, but this works great as a concealer too! I keep this in my purse at all times because it's great as an all in one, concealer/foundation/powder :)
I was really hoping that this product would be great as the Benefit makeup adviser was raving about it as she applied it to my face. I told her my concerns about wanting a foundation that was long lasting as I have very oily skin as most foundations slide off my skin by lunch time. She assured me that this product was for me and oh how dissapointed I was! Not even an hour after she applied it my face was looking horrible. It looked like the foundation had oxidised as my face had a very nasty tinge of orange to it. My face was incredibly oily and all my pores exposed. I had to wash this off my face staight away! Like with most of the Benefit products I find, this is definitely nothing special. Such a shame as the packaging is so cute!
