Purchased this when I was pregnant as I was having some skin issues early on in the pregnancy. I needed a foundation that would give me a good coverage but not sink into my skin. I was advised this by the lady at the benefit counter in my local John lewis.... well I was not disappointed!
It's a perfect foundation to wear on it's own or with a full face on. It gives a lovely dewy glow without being shiney, it sits comfortably on the skin without sinking into pores or creases. I have applied it with my hands, sponges and brush all with a good result. It is expensive but lasts for a long time so definitely worth the money in the long run.

I’m very picky when it comes to foundation I need it to be just the right coverage and colour and I find most don’t matxh my skin perfectly but this foundation holy cow it matches my skin basically perfect and I love the texture it leaves my skin looking flawless and healthy whilst also not looking cakey or like I’m wearing a tonne of makeup, I’ve only recently got this foundation and I’m already loving it would definitely recommend

✨I used to swear by this in my late teens and I knew very little about different types of foundation. I decided to try it again 10 years on and unfortunately the results were not great. Throughout the day. It oxidised terribly and left me looking very patchy and cakey, but also very shiny in my oilier areas too. For a price tag of £30, I expected way better results than this provides. Much like the compact foundation that Benefit do, I am not very impressed with their foundations. I do like that it has SPF in it, but going out in the sun wearing this is not an option!

I don’t understand why benefit felt the need to put spf in there foundation. I found that my skin looked super shiny after applying it, the coverage it supposed to be buildable but seriously I’m not applying spf on top of spf = shiny. Plus what can I say about taking pictures, it looked worse with the flash on, my face looked greasy & dull. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone with acne skin as it just makes it look worse with zero coverage. I absolutely love some of the other benefit products this has to be the worst I’ve tried.

You need to prep your skin im order to help this amazing foundation to fully cover all blemishes , the porefessional really helps . An amazing product to use after this is a light powder like hello flawless compact powder to cover spots or oily areas , this also last soo long , line hasn’t finished and I défo use this at least 5-6 times a week

I don't like full coverage foundations that feel really heavy on my skin so I thought it would be a good option for me. I quite liked the light coverage formation of this foundation. It was definitely build able whilst still leaving my skin feeling quite breathable. However, my issue is with their colour range. I am indian and the closest shade to my skin tone was a pretty awful match, even though it was recommended to me after a test at one of their counters. I do still use it sometimes if I want a quick highlight but I really think they need to expand the range.

This foundation is very good and does make your skin look amazing but it isn't good with coverage , if your like me and have acne prone skin I wouldn't recommend it because it doesn't cover spots and only overs light acne scars . It also comes away through out the day no matter how much setting I do with powders and sprays by the end of the day it's gone in my 'T' zone . If you have dry good skin (not acne prone) then it would be perfect for you just like it is for my friends that use it with dry skin . Hope this was helpful 🙏🏼😘

So I purchased this foundation looking for light coverage. Although the product did offer light coverage the formula was quite oily and did not last all day, I found after a few hours it had completely vanished even after setting powder and spray, I love a lot of benefits products, this one just wasn't for me.

For its price I don't find it a very good product. The product has a very light coverage, great if you're looking for something light however if you're going for a more dramatised look, or just need something to cover blemishes/red marks properly, I suggest other products

A light coverage foundation which is buildable if needed. Very watery however blends to create a glowing complexion. The biggest problem I have is that the shades are too warm-yellow undertoned and even the palest shade is way to orange for my cool very fair skin tone. Abit pricey and there are better foundations for the money, would not reccomend unless you have warm undertones.

I do like this foundation and I have purchased it at least twice in different shades. It provides a light to medium coverage and is build-able, creating a non matte finish. However I have found each shade I have tried has the wrong undertones for my skin, i.e the foundation has yellow rather than pink undertones but still a good foundation.

I found this foundation to be smooth but it got patchy in certain places of my face it looked prettier in the morning but towards the end of the day it'd be dry and really patchy. As a woman of darkskin their darkest colour didn't really suit me as well as I hoped it would. So I feel they need to expand their colour selection

I only just recently started wearing it again, i have acne and combination skin and this just looked patchy for me after 4 hours of school. it looks absolutely beautiful in the morning but it isn't a very long lasting foundation, I would say it's a light-medium coverage foundation but you can build it up to however full coverage you would like.
