This DUPE FOR BENEFIT SHE-LAQ product will *seriously* transform/convert/seal and make waterproof/sweatproof/tearproof/smudgeproof/budgeproof, you-name-it-proof ANY eye-make-up product you mix it with OR apply it on top of, regardless of quality. IT'S PURE ALCHEMY!!!
The clear, liquid, thin, water-like formula is designed to either a) be mixed with your preferred substrate--& then applied to face OR body OR b) simply be applied over substrate once substrate has ALREADY been applied to face OR body.
SUBSTRATE=Base Product~eyeshadow powder, brow powder, liner powder, shadow liner, liquid liner, gel liner, cream liner, etc.
Once dry, it remains completely transparent, flexible & non-sticky.
I've used She-Laq (the original) in NUMEROUS ways before BENEFIT--for whatever *COMPLETELY IRRATIONAL* reason--decided to stop making/selling it, among them:
Eyebrow Color Enhancer & Sealant (mix with powder eyeshadow or brow powder)
(atop gel- or cream-based brow product)
Mole Maker (mix w/dark brown or brown/black powder eyeshadow); For non-multiple, stand-alone 3-D zits--which YOU CANNOT CONCEAL WITH FLESHTONE CONCEALER--apply w/tiny 'concealer' or 'pencil' brush; instant realistic camouflage--and VERY sexy.
Eyeliner Sealant (mix w/powder shadow OR atop shadow OR atop liquid OR gel OR atop pencil)
Body Art Sealant: suitable for use anywhere on the body--it is canvas --indiscriminatory (although I WOULD NOT recommend too close to the 'more sensitive' areas of the nether-regions). Works well in conjunction with any cosmetic substrate to create 'temporary tattoos' or other semi-permanent forms of illustrated, stenciled or stamped body art.
I'm not gonna say it, I'm not gonna say it, I'm not gonna say it--OH, dear LORD, forgive me, MUA'ers forgive me for what I'm about to say (because I posted a semi-rant about how irritatingly trite the phrase has become here on MUA), and I've NEVER said it before myself, but right now it's just a-sittin' there on the very tip of my tongue 'bout to roll off of it and well goodness gracious great balls of fire I sure do "HOPE THAT HELPS!!!" ;-)
THIS PRODUCT IS A DUPE FOR THE FORMER HOLY GRAIL/CULT CLASSIC FAVORITE/NOW-DEFUNCT BENEFIT "SHE-LAQ."
FYI: HYPOCRISY ALERT
[Cringeswithselfloathing.] Here I go again. With the other oft-repeated MUA phrase that *really* grates on my nerves. The rare opportunity to use it correctly serendipitously happens to be presenting itself as such right here, right now. It's use here is rational and well-chosen within the context of the sentence, paragraph and review, particularly since I had to *SUBSTANTIALLY* edit my review *MULTIPLE* times (it wouldn't post properly or post at all otherwise, so [essential] info re. She-Laq being a wholly separate product was inadvertently omitted; then copy edited and included but with punctuation errors; then copy edited again "IF THAT MAKES SENSE.") LOL!!!

I have a love hate relationship with this product. I have oily skin with some acne scarring and wanted something to help cover it up. So I initially used this product as a foundation (which I've seen makeup artists do) rather than just a concealer which is what it was intended for. I used a very dense, flat top foundation brush which I swirled into the tub and blended into my skin. Obviously the more product you use the better the coverage, but although less product doesn't cover as well, the finish is more flawless and natural where too much can be cakey. So here are the things I love about this foundation:- amazing, full coverage- natural finish- huge shade selection- long lastingAnd here are the things that I don't love about it:- extremely transferable (forget about taking an afternoon nap or putting a sweater on - this stuff gets everywhere!)- not breathable at all (summer is the worst, it feels like you're wearing a mask)- creases in places - the product in the tub oxidizedAlthough this looked great at times, I could not handle my skin not being able to breathe and my makeup rubbing off on literally everything that brushed against it. If you don't have too many marks and if applied correctly, this will look great for a special event. Other than that just stick to using it as a concealer. The only reason I will purchase this again is to use as a concealer - it works great for my under eye circles when used with a setting powder.

My everyday foundation. It took me years to find the right shade and consistency of foundation. This is perfect for someone like me who has active acne and acne scares/stains. The full coverage helps me out and as long as you blend it in well it won't look thick and textured. I recommend this foundation to all my friends ❤

Was glad i made a big step to try this cream foundation, super natural finish (with proper blending, single layer) Please read all the other reviews, very helpful and useful but you need to try it yourself. I hv combination to oily skin so my face does get a bit shiny but you know wt to do (powder/blot tissue etc) however honestly i like a bit of natural shine on my face (not greasy) price factor, bought it for S$70+ from cosmoprof singapore quite exp I think but the product is good i wear make up everyday so will use it sparingly or alt with other brand...
