Note: I have really dry and sensitive skin. Most foundations seperate and peel of my skin within a few hours (e.g. Chanel VA). This foundation, however, makes my skin look flawless and whilst actually being a matte foundation, my dry skin always looks hydrated when I wear this. I does not feel heavy on my skin and makes me look flawless. I only wish it came with a pump.
This is probably one of the best make up purchases I ever made! I use this daily for contouring and warming up my face. I'm roughly NC15 and while NYx Taupe e.g. just looks dirty on me, Benefit Hoola is my absolute HG!! It lasts all day,too. Loves this!!!
Would I buy it again? Hell ya! For reference I am roughly an NC10 and the lightest shade (bright beige) fmatches me perfectly! Very dewy but not oily finish, very natural, it does cover my redness really nicely! I looove this stuff!!

OMG I love this!! I don't usually go for "out-there"-colors like this one and sticking to pinky-nudes. BUT this color is the bomb. I'm really fair and this shade just looks so sexy but be warned you'll definitely be noticed wherever you go lol. I reckon it would look stunning on most complexions.
One word: Horrible!! Just plain horrble. This foundation does not work for my skin at all. It looks beyond cakey and patchy. Also within a few minutes the color oxidizes like crazy. Waste of money for me :-(((
This is pretty much the best foundation I have tried. I love the finish it gives, it never looks cakey but always flawless. It definitely has a dewy glow to it which is nice in real live but I find because of the tiny glitter particles, it does look greasy in pictures. The shade range isn't great as others have stated before. I am about an NC10-15 and the lightest shade is too dark for me so I have to mix it with a few drops of a white foundation. Great prize plus it comes with a pump.
Although I own a lot of palettes and single eyeshadows from Dior, MAC, Chanel etc. this is the palette I reach for the most. The colours are absolutely amazing, so is the pigmentation. I would give 4,5 lippies as the eyeshadows are pretty powdery and the inside of my palette is covered in powder of every eyeshadow. But overall an awesome deal! *Little Update*: I use this palette more than my MAC eyeshadows, I love these colours <3
Amazing stuff. It gives the nicest 'glow' to your skin without being obvious. Not sure if it works on medium/ darker skintones though as it is quite cool-toned EDIT: I have realised that this looks horrible on me. Whenever I put it on, it just leaves this frosty, lilacy color on my cheekbones which almost looks muddy. I guess it's because although I'm really fair, I have more yellow than pink undertones to my skin.
One of the best mascaras I have tried recently. Whenever I apply this my lashes look literally 'fake' but in a good way, without having to much product on. Gives me amazing length. I can't really say much about the curves its suppose to hold as I have very curled lashes anyway.
I have a love/ hate relationship with this product. The shade is slightly to pink for me but fairly decent. It does give an amazing coverage and it does stay on all day. However, I find it tends too look cakey and the finish it gives is somehow unnatural. I mix it with my Bourjois Healthy Mix in the lightest shade though (1/1) and the result is close to perfection. I might repurchase just because I like mixing this with foundations that give a really dewy finish and not so much of a coverage.
