Benefit Some Kind-A Gorgeous
Before I get started on this review, I think you should know the following.
» I have combination skin. I usually get oily around my t-zone area.
» My skin is not really acne prone for I’ve never really had acne before except for when I get a pimple here and there so I don’t really know how this will be for those who ARE acne prone.
» I’m in shade NC35-NC40 in MAC, Medium Plus-Medium Dark in MAC powders, 4N1 Wheat in Estee Lauder Double Wear & Bisque 6W in Lancome Teint Miracle.
» NOTE that I also like to use foundations that are a shade lighter than me. I don’t know why but it just looks better I think after I do my bronzer and all that :)

This foundation is hands down one of my favorites, something I would definitely repurchase and here’s why…
» Packaging: It’s pretty awesome I think. I love that it’s compact -with a huge mirror and a separate compartment for the sponge.
» Shades: This only comes in 3 shades which in my opinion is alright since it’s a sheer foundation :) It’s something that can be blended easily so I don’t think anyone would have a problem with matching it at all.
» Oil-free & Lasting Power: The longest I’ve used this foundation was around 8 hours and it seriously keeps my T-zone oil-free compare to other foundations out there. I’ve even used this foundation on humid days during the summer and it did an amazing job. The coverage also doesn’t fade overtime which is great considering it’s not even a full coverage foundation. (I find that to be epic!)
» Coverage/Finish & Weight: As mentioned already, it’s a sheer foundation so the coverage is very light, but enough to even out your skin tone -getting rid of any discoloration. Also it has a natural finish which I think looks gorgeous! Oh and I also love the silky & smooth feeling that it gives you. As for weight, it is super light. It really feels like you’re not wearing any foundation at all.
» Others: Blendable & fragrance-free.
1. Since this is a “cream to powder” product, make sure that you apply moisturizer before using.
2. I recommend using the sponge that it comes with or a dense brush ie. Sigma F80, Sigma F82.
