Review: Benefit for Sephora, How To Look The Best At Everything kit
How To Look The Best At Everything - Medium, Flawless Complexion Makeup Kit $30.00We wrote the book on complexion perfection! Our custom perfectors give you a luminous complexion by blending away imperfections and minimizing the appearance of pores. You’ll be the first to finish flawless.
the POREfessional PRO balm to minimize the appearance of pores (7.5 mL, 0.25 US fl. oz)I adore this face primer, it provides a matte finish base to help your face makeup apply evenly and last for hours. It is marketed as translucent, but if you are very fair you may get a tiny tint to from it. The primer smooths the skin, camouflaging larger pores and fine lines. It has a light, fresh scent (which I LOVE!) but doesn't irritate my skin or my senses.
hello flawless oxygen wow “cute as a bunny” honey brightening makeup (7.0 mL, 0.23 US fl. oz)I was iffy about trying this foundation, my skin is so picky - but this foundation is amazing! It is light weight, almost runny, it applies smoothly and can be worked with easily. It is blendable, buildable, unpowdered it lasts for up to 6hrs on my combo skin, powdered is lasts up to 8hrs before turning pretty oily and beginning to fade (both tests were done with the POREfesional PRO balm underneath). The scent is mild, the texture is thin and the finish is powder soft. I'm approx. a MAC NC20/25, and this shade fits my skin tone beautifully and seamlessly!
boi-ing 02 & 03 industrial-strength concealer (2 x 1.5g net wt. 2 x 0.05 oz.)02 is pink toned, 03 is yellow toned. I personally prefer 03 on my skin. The concealer is a light weight, creamy texture. It melts into your skin with ease, you can build it up without experiencing piling or creasing and over 4-6 hours there is no creasing to the under eye area. It covers discoloration and mild blemishes really well, but stays put and works best when you set it with a powder. I really do enjoy it more than my MAC studio finish and select moisturecover concealers.
“hello flawless!” “I'm so money” honey custom powder cover-up (4.0 g net wt. 0.14 oz.)This powder is really nice! Usually I'm not picky about powders, they all seem to act the same on my skin. But this one actually lasts a long time and reduces the oils that my skin loves to produce. It doesn't have much of a coverage, I'd call it sheer to light coverage because you can definitely build it up and add more for a heavier coverage. It's a nice powder and I'm glad they included this in the kit.
Overall, I love this kit to pieces! I have been using it every day since I received it and I will continue to use it until it runs out. Using all the products in conjunction leaves my skin looking "normal" and feeling soft for hours. My favorite items are the primer and foundation. I love that they provide two concealer shades - this will please so many customers! Oh, and the brush is really soft, I've been exclusively using that brush every day with this kit. If you are looking for a travel friendly face makeup kit, or want samplings of Benefit Cosmetics, this is the perfect kit for you! The tips and tricks cards are really helpful for those who are brand new to applying makeup.
