Hey guys,As most of you already know, I'm a big fan of Benefit cosmetics, ant it hurts me to say that I was very, very disappointed with this product. I bought Hello Flawless powder in the shade ivory "I love me" back in January and I was very excited to try this product.
The staff who helped me with my order was very lovely, they even offered for me to apply this products before the purchase to see if I like it. Overall experience with visiting the Benefit counter at Boots was amazing, as always. However, this post is about the product, not the shopping experience.
As you can all see, the packaging is really unique, and rather modern. It's cute and girly, and the metallic effect makes it look like a mirror. It isn't too big so you can just chuck it in your handbag and carry it around to reapply during the day. I would say that the packaging is a very solid 9/10. Who doesn't love Benefits packaging? All products deserve a round of applause for looking extra high end and girly.
I know I should have taken pictures before I started using this product, but I din't know I was going to use it up so fast! This is what the powder looks like on the inside. It has a compact mirror already built in, which makes it even better as you don't have to carry a spare mirror with you whenever you go out.
This is the second section in this product, which holds a sponge applicator and a face brush. This is truly the ultimate powder which every girl dreams of having! A 3 in 1 to be exact!
This is the back of the product, showing information about the shade and mass.
And last but not least, a photograph of the product swatched on my hand. I didn't rub it in properly so you could see the texture of the powder. It is velvet-smooth and very light in touch.
Now, here we get to the important part of the review. As you can see in the pictures above, I have used nearly all of the product up and there isn't much I can do with the rest of it as it's placed around the edges. The shocking part is that I only had this product for around a month or two. Usually a powder lasts me for at least 3 months, but I used this one up much faster than any other. The most disappointing thing about this product was that it wore out far too quickly and I had to reapply it at least 3 times a day to keep my face shine-free. I will definitely never buy this product again, unless Benefit improved it's use. The product itself does not deserve higher than 4/10 :(
I hope this post helps anyone who's unsure about buying this product! If you have any questions then don't be shy and drop a comment below :) See you soon lovelies!!
Lots of love,
