”Fancied trying something other than my standard BB cream, this is a lightweight, soft foundation which covers most of my redness on my face. Very happy with the product, worn it every day so far and lasts the day with only one powder touch up!”

Great product!

Beautiful finish! I usually like medium to full coverage and find I can easily build this up beautifully, I find it best applied with a duo fiber buffing brush. I always set mine with the porefessional primer; translucent powder and it lasts all day while staying very lightweight. Very impressed with this as I didn’t have high hopes.

love and hate this🤣

I tried a sample size of this with the shade #3 and i am obsessed with this.i have a textured skin and acne marks and all the uglies in my face but when I applied it, its like magic! Covered the marks and blurred my pores. Thats why i purchased the big one. It just sucks because its super pricey but it comes in a very small portion. It lasted me for about a month of usage. And there is something with the smell like chemical something i cant explain. Overall, it works and will probably purchase again. The shade really compliments my skintone.

Lightweight Everyday Foundation

I use this on regular days, when I don't really need to have a fully made up face. It's lightweight and gives a natural looking your-skin-but-better finish. Best to use a moisturizer underneath as it tends to clump on dry, flaky skin. I wish Benefit would improve its scent though as it doesn't invoke Happy vibes with its chemical smell.

Flawless pore-coverage

The reason I rated this with only 4 stars is because it emphasised my dry patches. I usually use BB creams because I like that very dewy moisturised look. If I want a really flawless looking base with dewy skin, I use this on my t-zone and a small portion of the area beside my nose just because I want it to be matte there upon application since it would oil up anyway in 4 hours, and to further cover my pores. Although I never use this alone all over the face, because my cheeks tend to have dry patches which BB creams would hide naturally. If you’re picky with specific products to put on specific areas of your face, definitely get this. Also, even after I’ve oiled up quite a bit, it doesn’t settle in my pores even if I don’t powder nor set.

So lightweight that it feels like my skin but drawn back by the smell

I like this so much! It was so lightweight that it didn’t feel that I was wearing something and this made my skin look better. Coverage was light to medium, but it can be built up. This was perfect for me since I tend to go for the no-makeup look these days. The only drawback was the chemical smell which I didn’t like.

hoping they would change the smell

This foundation has a very cute packaging so i decided to give it a try. I really wanted to love this but i just can deal with the smell :( However, this is good to use if you want to achieve that "my skin but better" look. I'd still repurchase tho hahahaha
