Benefit some kind-a gorgeous ~ Foundation Faker


What it is:
This lightweight, translucent, foundation-like product smoothes out imperfections and evens skin tone with a silky, smooth finish that's super natural and super gorgeous.

Shades ~ Lite, Medium & Deep. I got Medium.

How to apply ~ Apply evenly all over face with accompanying sponge or fingertips. I prefer to apply it with fingers, coz I feel the sponge eats up the product too much.


Packaging is like a record. Very cool! :)




some kind-a gorgeous Medium


It really is a foundation faker. It is like a tinted moisturizer in cream form. It is oh-so-smooth and silky! It blends so easily & disappears into the skin like magic! So less effort is needed to blend it that even a child can do it!

Coverage ~ Light, but it does cover redness and evens out my skin tone. It is buildable to medium, but you'll need A LOT of it. Let's just say if you want heavy coverage, you'll need at least 2 teaspoons of this, but I bet that it still won't look cakey.
*I use it under another foundation-like a primer-sometimes.

Finish ~ It goes from cream to powder, but not dry/matte powder. My oily/combination skin needs powder after this. If I'm going for dewy, then I'd skip the powder.

Sponge

Bread & peanut butter =D

I do like this a lot, and I might repurchase (if my wallet allows me).  I have to say, this is a very well-made formula.

Price ~ RM 130 (Rs.1950). But it's $29 in the US- that's approx. Rs.1332. Grr.
Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥4/5

  10. I don't like how they only have three shades. That always stops me from buying any complexion product from benefit.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
