I really wanted to love this. I tend to wear a BB or CC cream for work rather than full foundation and am always on the look out for products with a high SPF in them, so I really wanted to love this.
After several attempts I have managed to get it to work on my skin a couple of times but I find you really have to work it in with your fingers as it's quite thick and drags a bit on the skin. It has that silicon-y feel of a heavy primer which gives it a tendency to pill.
It does feel fairly light weight once it's on but I just don't think it's worth the price tag or the effort it takes to try and get in on in the mornings.
It could be great
I bought this one before getting a sample. I usually don't have problems with benefit products, but this one was a disaster.
The coverage is great, but a few minutes after putting it on, my skin starts to scale and peel off. It takes a week for the reaction to clear off.
It's a shame because, as I said, the coverage is really good with a lovely matte finish.
brought this as I said I had dry skin and this was recommended, I used it a few times and never again! it made my face more dry to the point it was peeling the foundation went blotchy and didn't last.
I was eager to try this as I love pore fessional and to be honest a Benifit addict. So after a few goes with it, applying it with fingers then a foundation brush and even sponges I just can't get it to 'fit' right. The colour is good it even goes on well but the powder finish is a problem it clings to minimal hairs and feels heavy on my skin. (I use sheer cover powder so it's not that I'm not used to the powder finish )The only time I find it goes on okay is after pore fessional. I just wish I'd have tried it at a benefit counter first and used my points for something else
It makes me sad that other people's experiences of this hasn't been good as mine. This is my favourite!
I treat it as a normal foundation, so prep, moisturise and prime beforehand. It feels lovely and the coverage is great without feeling heavy. Needs minimal powder to set and continues to stay put and feels lovely all day.
