You guys have to see the packaging of this kit. It is adorableeee!!! It comes in a hardback book format. And as you can see the kit also comes in 3 skin shades.
The set has its famous Porefessional ( totally love the witty name!!), the Hello Flawless foundation, the Boi-ing Concealer in two colours and the Hello Flawless custom powder cover-up in Champagne (Me, Vain?) and a useless flat brush that one could probably use for contouring or practically nothing.
The packaging comes with a few tips and tricks on how to use the particular items.
I just loved the feel of the Porefessional. Its a primer to prep up the skin before applying the foundation for a smooth cover. Although it doesn’t minimise all your pores but it smoothens out most of them. I would definitely purchase this primer again.
Secondly, you have the Hello Flawless Foundation. Mine came in a light colour ( ivory) although i thought medium would have been perfect for me. I was so hesitant when I wore it first but after a few minutes I felt it oxidised and became closer to my skin colour. So I would suggest if you do purchase it get a lighter shade than your skin colour and let it oxidise to your tone. But go for the closest lighter shade. The texture was so smooth. I applied it directly with my fingers. They say its called ‘Oxygen Wow’ because your skin breathes after you apply it. Well it does because you honestly do not even feel the weight of the foundation but I felt my foundation after a while became slightly shiny and dewy. I prefer matte. Because of this I might be hesitant about repurchasing the foundation but those who do not mind packing on the face powder or the shiny, “brightening”, look it would work well for them.
The best part is that it comes in a variety of shades so buying a shade similar to yours should not be an issue.
Loved the texture of this Boi-ing concealer. The kit gives you two shades but it comes in a minimum of 5 shades in their series. The concealer is so smooth but yes it doesn’t conceal perfectly in one coat. You have to apply 2-3 coats for really dark marks. But since it comes in two colours with the set you can easily mix around. This is also perfect for people with varying skin tones. Mix and match and play around with your concealer. I would love to purchase it again.
Lastly, we have the Hello Flawless custom powder cover-up in Champagne (Me, Vain?). It also comes in a variety of colours which is a great thing. But I would have taken the shade Beige instead for myself. I just thought Champagne made my skin fairer than it was. Personally, I am not big on face powders but since it came with the set I did use it. The texture was very smooth and if you are wearing their ‘Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow’ foundation you would definitely need this to settle down the dewiness and the brightening effect a bit if you aren’t a big fan of it. As for the cover-up powder I would like to purchase it if I want to wear powder in my life. Its a good buy.
My suggestion, get the kit. It is so much more fun to use these items in a set and you do get a variety of products together. The quantity is just perfect. The best part about the products I felt was that a little goes a long way. Trust me it will last you quite a few uses for you to be able to decide what you love the best. And their marketing strategy with the absolutely adorable and witty product line adds excitement to a girls make-up selection.
At the end I should mention about my crazy, sensitive skin type. It is so difficult for me to find products for myself that do not make me break out. I have always been very picky. But I was so shocked that Alhamdulilah my skin did not break out at all on using any of these products and I will definitely purchase Benefit products again.
Hope you all loved the review. 🙂
P.s: Just wanted to thank Google for the
pictures. The kit that I selected for myself was the light one since they were out of medium then. Hence the colours visible in the kit were the ones i got and the single pictures of the foundation, concealer and the cover-up powder are not the shades from the box. They are just there to give you a closer look of the packaging.
