Benefit 'Hello Flawless' Foundation



Benefit 'Hello Flawless' Foundation £25.50

*For reference my skin type is oily/ combination, it has a tendency to get super dry through winter. This foundation had been used through summer when my skins an oil slick and through winter when skin's dry*

Available in 9 shades (go benefit) with 3 shades being targeted at more darker complexions (lovely to see a brand offering more then one darker shade in there line) - I wear the shade Hazlenut, this foundation has SPF25, is oil free, claims to be hydrating, with light diffusing properties 


Firstly lets talk coverage, this has a super light texture with a thin watery consistency. It's very buildable and allows you to create the desired amount of coverage. For good skin days one layer of this almost has a tinted moisturiser feel to it. For bad skin days this foundation can be built up to a higher coverage foundation (the picture above is several layers buffed in) this manages to cover my ever so sexy pigmentation, and spots too all without ever appearing cakey on the skin. If your skin is very dry you may find that this foundation has the tendency to cling to dry areas, so perhaps this is a no go for people with very dry skin types. 

Long wearing? For combination/dry this baby has you covered, on days where skin is more oily a dusting of translucent powder is needed, I usually do this for the majority of foundations I use. On days where my skin is very oily I do find this to slide of the face, but for the cooler months this lasts all day. If your skin is oily, blot, and a re powder will definitely be needed with this foundation.

So there we have it, I've owned this product since its release and can say I'm rather impressed. I love the packaging and concept. With this foundation, we have longevity, buildability and blend ability. This foundation is definitely one for the combination gals, super oily/super dry may wish to stay clear. 

Have you tried the Benefit 'Hello flawless' foundation? What are your favourite Benefit products I'm wanting to try more from the brand but have no idea where to start...

Thank you for the comment, this was a bit of a discovery for me I love it though! Yes I know it's not meant to be about the packaging but it does make a different, I like that this has a pump too! Oooh I've always wanted to try that so many people rave about it I think it got voted number one mascara in the UK too! :D x

I wanted to like this product-but it made my skin look very 'orangey' :( I'm glad it works for a lot of people though-it's tough to find a good foundation!

Thanks for comment, and so sorry to hear this didn't work for you! The shade range in this is a little off and I think these defo work better on warmer skin tones-so with you there one of the toughest items to buy for me when it comes to make up x
