It does what it says: covers redness and evens skin tone!! the two things i need:) i understand that to cancel out the red you need a yellow color, but it looks heavy and soemtimes unnatural. I often have to use blotting tissues and i dont know if its just because my skin is just oily or the powder is making memore oily? I have pinkish fair skin with bad acne scars and very oily skin- its generally hard to cover my redness but with the combination of the vichy foundation and the get even powder, my skin looks amazing:) imnot sure if ill repurchase because i always love trying new brands.

While it's a good blotting powder, it is way to chalky for me, which is weird given that I have oily spots on my face. There are better powders out there for the same price or even less. Plus the colour selection is way too limited.

I used to love this product but it seems like they have changed the color a bit. It looks a lot more yellow and unnatural. I returned the product because it make my face breakout and it went on really cakey and looked like I was wearing a layer of powder. If you do buy, I recommend investing in a good blush brush, because the sponge they give you with it is completely useless.

I'm usually apprehensive about hyped products as they don't usually work for me. I have lightish asian yellow toned skin (NC25) and find products don't often go the colour they're supposed to because of this, especially things like powders, foundations and concealers.
However, i couldn't stress how perfect this powder is with my skin! It matches it exactly and when i put some over red patches i usually get, they dissapear straightaway! It might be because the powder is fairly yellow toned and i have yellow toned skin, but i am so amazed that something matches so well and it isn't too chalky and dry!
I'd like to add, i'm no make up buff, i don't own a lot of things like foundation as they're far too high maintenance for a scruff like me. So this product is perfect as i don't use it allover my face, i just put on my usual moisteriser then use my fingers and dab some over the red bits or undereye circles and stuff. It's so quick and easy. Admittedly, it does need reapplying every three hours or so, but thats not bad going considering i don't use a base, just some cheap face cream.
The one bad thing about this product is the price. I'm hoping to swap for some of these on here, or find them cheap on Ebay. I absolutely love it though!

I found this product:
- really inconsistent when applied
- suuuper light coverage
+ great packaging
+ no orange tint whatsoever
overall I think it would be best used with a brush as a blotting powder

best powder out there. great coverage without looking "cakey" and hides redness perfectly.

On my 3rd day using it and this stuff is great! Stays put over my foundation, good coverage and no break outs! The sponge it comes with isnt useful what so ever. Well..I mean its good for touch ups I guess. Use a powder brush! Will buy again as long as it works with my face!

I am re-writing this review. This product is okay. But it can look very fake whilst wearing. It needs light application. Secondly, there isn't a very good colour choice at all. You get three shades - Light, Medium and Dark if I remember correctly. I bought medium although I am pale (NC15, an NC20 tops). It's also expensive. And I think there are better powders out there for the price. I personally perfer MAC mineralize skin finnish natural in light - medium for me.
The packaging of this is nice, a little black compact with a mirror and 'sponge'... it's not really a sponge though, doesn't act like a sponge lol. I will say it's cute though and well thought out.
I like the idea of this powder, just watch how much you apply or you'll end up looking like a fake face.

Pricing: Expensive ($30) But well worth it
Packaging: Great, comes with a useless sponge though
Color evens out red skin perfectly
Let's freckles and natural color shine through slightly
3 color to choose from really work for a bunch of skin tones

At first, I found this product to be excellent. It gives very good coverage and does even out skin tone. The down side for me is that, I find I have to top up - it doesn't last all day. The sponge that comes with it is absolute useless, so I have to use a soft brush to apply this instead and it's way too expensive for what you get. I use a loose powder over my foundation daily and use this for occasions or nights out due to the price. P.S. You should just put this on one side of your face first and compare it to the other, your "get even" side will look flawless! I will buy again when I run out and use sporadically!

Get Even #2 is one powder that I keep coming back to.... I really like the fact that it does even out my skin tone. I'm on my 4th compact, and probably won't be the last. The only reason I gave it 4 lippy is that I feel it's on the pricey side for a powder. Other than that, the only time I don't use it is probably during the winter time where my skin is tooooo dry ... since the powder makes my face look chalky, but it's great for me in the summer time!

This has been one of my staples for the past 3 years. My skin is NC20 and this stuff is the perfect shade for me. My skin has a slight touch of rosacea and I use Get Even with Some Kind of Gorgeous and it corrects any redness. The puff that comes in the sturdy, black mirrored compact usually gets thrown out and I use a nice powder brush. It is kinda pricey but it is worth it.

I bought this product about a year ago and am starting to LOVe this make up Line. I am usually a MAC person but Benefit turned me onto thier products. I didn't realize mac is for studio wear vs. just a natural wear. Get Even#2 has replaced my mac studiofix. I love this product escpecially when I wear it over some kind of gorgoeus. It doesn't feel caky on my skin and just feels very natural.

Wow. i love this. Total HG. My skin is NC20/25ish and I wanted something to help even out my skintone, minimize pores, and just give me a polished, fresh, matte look without drying my skin out. Also, my problem is that i can never find a powder (or foundation) that is yellow enough. But this does the trick. It evens out my skin beautifully, has great coverage, and blends well with my kabuki brush.
Colorwise, the #2 shade is perfect for me. PERFECT! It's the perfect amount of yellow, great for light olive complexions. I think #2 compares to the yellow in Stila's IPF 40 watts, perhaps a dab lighter. But unlike Stila's illuminating powder foundation, this powder really gives you a fresh matte finish, with no shimmer at all. I love that!
For reference: I like this sooo much better than MUFE's duo-mat powder foundation (which didn't cover a thing! and was so chalky!) I also like this better than Mac's studiofix (which irritated my skin terribly). I also like this better than BE minerals (which made my skin itch! and was too "metallic-looking"). It's also way better than L'oreal's Bare Naturale (which was nice, but colors were never yellow enough) It's also better than Jane Iredale's powders because this lasts sooo much longer. It really lasts all day on me. I love that is so pigmented.
I actually think the compact is super cute. I don't carry it around with me though, i leave it at home. I just apply in the morning, and maybe blot once in the afternoon with 1 oil-blot sheet if it's been a busy day. But if i'm going out at night, i'll sweep my kabuki brush lightly over the powder for a quick touch-up.
I wear a special concealer for my undereye circles-- (i adore Time Balm by TheBalm!) and sometimes i'll wear a light TM underneath this Get Even powder (usually Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Enhancer in #30), but that's only when i want to be super polished. Otherwise it looks great on bare skin.
I will definitely buy this again. It is so worth it.
UPDATE: still like this, but it might just be for special occassions and not everyday, since i think my skin is too sensitive for everyday use. but i kept 5 stars b/c i still think it's nice and does what it says.
UPDATE #2: Well, i just tried it again and i absolutely LOVE it!!! It does not irritate my skin like i had previously thought--- i have since changed my skincare routine and learned that my skin really handles make-up better if i use Glycolic Acid toner every night (thank you, Dr. Denese!). So no more problems. Now i can go back to enjoying this lovely powder.
my favorite thing about this powder is the natural yellow color. it's not that phoney yellow that Bluff Dust has, but it's yellow enough to really brighten your skin, especially if u have olive undertones like me. Thank goodness for Get Even #2! :) definitely HG for me

I'm very impressed with how well this shade blends in with my skin color even though there were only 3 colors to choose from. My friend also uses the same shade although our skin color is slightly different, and it matches her skintone very well.
This product provides light coverage and delivers a natural finish. It seems to even out my skin tone and cancel redness.
I love how this product gets rid of the oiliness and shininess of my face when I first apply it in the morning, and continues to soak up oil throughout the day without any touch up. As a result, my skin stays matte for a long period of time.
This is great for really oily skin - I would not recommend it for anyone with normal or dry skin. I have combination skin and find that it dries out some areas of my face. However, it is fine when I use a heavier moisturizer around those areas before putting on the product.

I went to my local benefit counter to pick my shade - with other brands Id go for a lighter shade so was tempted to just go with number 1 however number 2 really suits my skin tone. Number 1 was that little bit too light. Anyway I use this every day, usually just moisturise, then some of this, mascara and blush. If Im wearing foundation I'll use a little powder to set on top, take away any shine. Today Im wearing some kinda gorgeous and thought I may need a little powder on top but it wasnt necessary. Ive just bought another as Ive started to see the metal base coming through in the compact... Feels good to wear and evens my skin tone out nicely.

I really like this product. I wear it after I apply my primer and it really evens out the redness on my cheeks. After I apply the powder I apply my BE in medium than I top it off with Benefit's Dandelion. My skin looks flawless. I once forgot to apply the powder and only applied the BE and Dandelion and I noticied my skin didn't look as evened out. It took a while for me to figure out the best regimine for application, but once I did my face looks great.

I wear this everyday--just brushed on with my MAC 180 brush. It cancels out redness and tones down shine. I wear this like a powder foundation. I don't like liquids, and the traditional powder foundations that I've tried (MUFE Duo Mat, Smashbox, and EL DoubleWear) didn't work for me for various reasons. Benefit's powder is great--it is definitely pigmented enough to be considered a powder foundation. It's oil free and has never broken me out (which is easy for most makeup to do--as in the case of the MUFE Duo Mat). You get a very natural finish. Luckily for me, #2 matches my yellow undertoned skin well. For reference, I'm a NC20. Benefit's powder in #1 is a wee bit too light for me.
Only gets 4 of 5 because it does't last all day.

I'm a little on the fence with this product despite using it for several months. I've recently starting putting it only on my nose which tends to get a bit red as the day goes on. I'm fair (Stila 30 watts) and this shade is pretty good on me (#1 would be far too light), but does look a little yellow to my eye when it's on some areas of my skin.
UPDATE: Giving this an extra lippie as it's now summer here, and the colour looks much more natural on me now I've got a bit of a tan (can wear all over my face). I have also found that I get a more natural application when I apply this with a brush rather than the supplied puff which tends to put the product on too densely.
