Benefit 'Hello Flawless' Review

full foundation

 

I have been a lover of Benefit makeup since my teens, I love their blushes especially Dandelion, the only liquid foundation I used to use was Benefits Non-Fiction so when it discontinued a while back I have been searching for the perfect base.

So you can imagine how happy I was to hear that a new foundation had been released.

I bought the lightest shade which is 'I'm pure 4 sure' Ivory. I still found this shade too dark for my skin tone I prefer a foundation with more cool tones and almost white to avoid the dreaded jaw line mark.

The foundation is a nice texture, with buildable coverage however I personally find it too shiny, I prefer a matt base but if you do like a bit of illumination then this is nice as its not glittery, however it wasn't my cup of tea.

I tried putting powder on however it ended up making me look cakey. I would recommend using a primer with this foundation and they actually give a small sample of there 'Stay don't Stray' primer which I liked however I still prefer there Pore-fessional primer instead.

Overall I don't like this foundation for my skin tone but if you have more normal/combination-dry skin type I think this would be worth a try but I recommend asking for a sample before you fully commit.

My skin type is oily/combination.

Id really like some recommendations for foundations for pale skin with a decent amount of coverage if you have any?

  1. Great review! As a fellow pale girl, I'd recommend Revlon's ColorStay foundation, it's got excellent coverage. My favorite! http://www.walmart.com/ip/Revlon-With-SoftflexColorstay-Makeup-1-Fl-Oz/11980556

  2. Thank you! I might have a look for that one, I love a pale foundation, you can always make it darker if needs be but its hard to make a dark one lighter. Thank you for taking the time to read my post :D X
