This is my second time purchasing this because I needed something with SPF for when I'm in a real rush with no time for layering products. For me this would get much better reviews if it was marked as a tinted moisturiser. I think people looking to try a new foundation, who are used to things like double wear, mac products or any other high end brands for that matter will be disappointed …Read more

Definitely not wowed.
It doesn't look that great on the skin from the beginning. I did not find that it looked natural on the skin at all.
The wear was not that great. My skin starts to look greasy within an hour of applying and by 3-4 hours the foundation is starting to break up a bit. At the 5 hour mark, it just does not look good.
There are not too many shades to choose …

I went out shopping for makeup with my daughter before just before Christmas. I’ve never purchased Benefit Cosmetics before but she tried on some really nice Benefit powder foundations and I ended up getting a small sample of this liquid foundation in Ivory: Believe in Me from Boots. The colour match was a complete slam dunk. Despite temperate days in England with lots of misty weather, my …Read more

This is one of the first foundations I used up entirely. The shade toasted beige is dark for me but works for me in summer when I'm more tan. I gives me a natural looking dewy finish and lasts quite well after finishing with a powder and spray. Not HG, but quite good nonetheless!

I’m shocked this foundation has such a low score. It’s sitting up there with my other HG foundation, NARS luminous. I bought this to try out when I do makeup for mature age skin (mua) for weddings, for women wanting a very natural look. I’m impressed. Incredibly staying power obv when used with a good primer and setting powder, still leaves a dewy finish and looks flawless but natural. Love it!

I have mixed feelings for this.
The good thing is that the foundation looks undetectable on the skin. It just looks like your real drewy skin.
It is silicon-based, so it glides over your pores and gives you an airbrushed poreless finished.
It never breaks apart and looks cakey. Great.
But it has zero oil-control ability. I have combination to oily skin, and it (on its own)makes …

I have dry skin. Immediately when I applied this foundation I was like daamn, this is wet. It never set on my face and it just seemed to get shinier the longer I wore it sooo, I went in with a setting powder and then a hydrating spray. Definitely helped set the foundation and gave it a matte finish. Could also be because my skin is dry so powder just always looks matte. I hate using a setting …Read more

I love Benefit's Hello Flawless powder, so I assumed I would love this foundation. Definitely do not love. The shade range is quite awful--I'm an NC 20 and went with Plush & Precious Petal, but I do find that it oxidizes and never fully "sets." It is beautifully lightweight and gives a light dewy glow. But if you have oily skin, I have found that no matter what primer is …Read more

I purchased this foundation since I was needing something more lightweight for daily wear, and this foundation ended up being perfect. It feels lightweight on the skin, similar to a BB cream, but still gives great coverage, which I love. I apply it with a damp beauty blender, then add some highlight above my cheekbones, and it seriously makes me glow. It has a more dewy finish, so it would not be …Read more

My skin is oily during the summer and combination during winter/autumn/spring. This foundation is quite greasy which can be annoying and the lightest shades aren't very pale (lightest shade can become quite orangey during the day), but apart from that the foundation is nice, it doesn't settle in dry patches or enhance any lines. Its quite pretty but definitely not perfect.
