Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation



Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation


I bought this at a Benefit blogging event last year and I’m gutted to say it’s really not the foundation for me. I love the consistency of this, very liquidy and not sticky at all which means it blends in perfectly with my Real Techniques buffing brush. It provides a light to medium coverage which is matte and looks really nice on my skin, very natural looking and long lasting. Another great thing about this foundation is that you only need the tiniest bit, for me that’s one pump so it won’t run out anytime soon. So what’s my issue? This foundation breaks me out like a bitch which is so annoying because I love everything about it so unfortunately I won’t be going near this again.


Repurchase? No.

    That's such a shame! I tried this on briefly in Debenhams and absolutely loved it on my skin, but I've never purchased it so I wouldn't know if it would break me out or not! I guess it's a gamble with any foundation really.

    That's such a shame! I'm always so worried about how new foundations will react with my skin

    that's so annoying, i took a chance and tested this one and it works fine, i agree with how it blends so seamlessly, but feel it's not an "everyday" kind of foundation as it's too heavy xx

    that's so annoying but at least you got a little knocked off the price when you bought it haha i've read with so many other people that it breaks them out too so benefit have clearly got something a tiny bit wrong…

    So many people seem to love it, it's a shame you didn't get on with it, especially with it being an expensive product! X
