I have been so excited waiting for the Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation launch! There was a lot of hype around it for the launch and I couldn’t wait to see if it was really everything it claimed to be! I just got it last week and started using immediately! For me, the best way to really test a product is use it as they recommend for a minimum of two weeks, but when it comes to makeup, you kind of know almost right away if you like it or not!

At first glance, this foundation appears to be just as any other foundation, simple packaging, decent color selection and easy-to-use pump. Now the thing that REALLY caught my attention was the PA+++ protection (which means it has the highest quality of protection against UV rays). I also liked the fact that it has SPF 15, and vitamins E & C to help keep your skin hydrated and protected.

When I applied the foundation, I noticed my skin looked super dewy, I actually loved it (although I do recommend using a powder on your T-Zone or all over if you have oily skin)! It goes on super smooth and leaves you with a fair amount of coverage! It really looks and feels more like a tinted moisturizer! The color I chose was a bit lighter, which I recommend since this makeup seems to oxidize and could turn darker when you wear it! Try a shade slightly lighter than your skin and see how it works through the day! All in all, it feels really great and is a really nice alternative to tinted moisturizer! If you’re looking for extra coverage, this might not be the foundation for you, but if you’re looking for light to medium coverage and a healthy alternative, this is DEFINITELY a great option!
