REVIEW: Benefit Hello Flawless! Powder Foundation

10:45:00 PM

First off, you all have to know that I wear really light makeup because I can't stand the feeling of thick layers of makeup on my face. As a matter of fact, I don't even wear makeup everyday. For certain events like a special evening with my boyfriend, or even work experience in a pharmacy, then yeah I'll throw on some light makeup but apart from that, I just can't be bothered.

My go-to base just to make my face look more presentable and to lighten any acne marks or darkness under my eyes is this product right here.

Benefit Hello Flawless! Powder Foundation Life With Audrey
Benefit's Hello Flawless! Powder Foundation

This product claims to:
Glide on naturally sheer and layer beautifully for customized coverage.
Perfect for any skin type.
Satin finish

It does what it says!
Now, I can't remember when I bought it but I think I got it for $59 at Myers.
Don't get this expecting full coverage because if that's the case, this isn't what you're looking for.
If you're like me, and you prefer a very light sheer coverage then this is for you.
You could use a brush or a sponge to apply it onto your face. 
I usually use a sponge for slightly more coverage than with the brush.

I find the packaging really cute and it comes with a brush and sponge as well. There are 9 shades to choose from, which is quite a lot if you asked me so it won't be hard to find one that matches your skin tone. My shade is called "I'm cute as a bunny" Honey

It goes on matte, and stays on for quite long. I don't usually wear makeup when I know I'm going to be out for a long period so I'd say it lasts about 4-5 hours at least. I'm not sure if it lasts from day to night though, but if you do please let me know!
I would test it out, but I just can't stand having makeup on my face for too long.

As you can see, I've used up almost all of it.
It's also got SPF in it, even though quite low, but better than none at all especially when you're heading out for a quick run to get some groceries. 

THE FINAL VERDICT
Pros:
Compact and cute packaging
Lightweight and sheer (Con for someone who's looking for more coverage)
Many shades to choose from
Has SPF 15
Buildable

Cons:
On the expensive side
May not last from day to night

Packaging: 9/10
Ease of use: 9/10
Effectiveness: 8/10
Affordability: 6/10
Repurchase: Maybe, but I'd probably try other alternatives in attempt to find one that suits me better

  6. SPF is really important! I find myself lazy to put on so many layers of stuff so I have to have spf in my foundation. But not many foundation last from day to night, especially in Malaysian weather.

  27. I think Benefit is probably that one brand I shop at the most haha! T_T How I wish my products can hit pan also haih. I can never finish my makeup products until its been left there way too long to be used again. :( On the side note, I've used their Hello flawless liquid foundation but I think the powder one gives a better coverage!

    1. I love this product a lot so that's why I'm able to finish it. I love their liquid foundation as well and I'm using that now too!

    2. Which one do you think gives better coverage though? Cause I've never owned the powder one :( Only managed to swatch it in stores :c

      Delete
    3. I'm really loving the foundation right now and since it's liquid I think it blends into our skin better than the powder in terms of coverage and how flawless/smooth the skin will look :)
