I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a party debuting Benefit’s FIRST liquid foundation last week. I was familiar with their powder foundations, as well as concealers, but was excited to try their newest creation. At the event, I walked pass a sign that caught my attention: One small step for complexion, one giant leap for perfection! Okay, I’m hooked.
I sat down with one of the many talented Benefit makeup artists and proceeded to be “swatched”. They have nine shades, I was Champagne. She first prepped my skin with their The POREfessional primer balm ($29.00). This product is the bomb if you have large pores like myself. It smoothed the way for the foundation to go on flawlessly. Then she used the eye cream It’s Potent! ($32.00) Boy, was this potent. When she was done with my foundation, I asked her, What concealer did you use? She told me NONE. Just the eye cream. Give me one! I need this stuff!! So that was just two products right there and I was NOT leaving without them.
Okay, back to the main product, Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW Brightening Makeup. Just a few pumps and it seamlessly spread over my face to create a gorgeous canvas. I had a few trouble spots so she was able to layer in order to give me the coverage I needed without looking cakey. I looked in the mirror, and boy did I look brighter! It’s also oil-free, so you combo/oily gals need not to worry. Then, with a dusting of Dallas face powder/bronzer ($28.00), I was ready to go out for a night on the town!
Some other great facts about this foundation:
Oil-Free, SPF 25
Helps to boost cellular respiration for a “plumping effect”
Contains Vitamin C and E derivatives known to prevent signs of aging
For $34.00, you can’t let this product get away…
