Have you ever had a day where you wake up feeling blah? Then you look in the mirror and think this is not your day! Whether it be blemishes, spots, scars or uneven skin tone, something needs to be done. Not only for yourself but for others too.. No-one wants to be scared on a Monday morning. Trust me, I put my own hand up when it comes the whole vicious cycle. You know the one I’m talking about; using concealer to make your skin even and in the long run making it worse. Well fear no more my fellow ladies (and men if you’re into that kind of thing), because help is at hand!
I’ve been using this product for over a year now and I recommend it for the girls that sometimes just wants effortless makeup done ever so effortlessly. Drum roll please….. It’s none other than Benefit’s ‘Hello flawless’ powder and concealer all in one. The name says it all really. Perfectly flawless. Now this product has got me through some rough times. Such a quick easy method, as most powders you’re thinking, but this one goes a long way. The powder itself is silky soft and a little makes a lot of difference. It goes on so smoothly and the coverage lasts all day, okay maybe one or two touch up’s if you have oily skin but on the whole; long lasting. Some people recommend it as a powder foundation, therefore less is used on your skin, making the cycle come to an end. I’ve gone for the ‘toasted beige’ colour as it’s perfect for my skin tone and unlike most powders it has no pink or orange undertones. But there’s a perfect range for all skin tones.
Depending of your preference, there’s the option to use a brush or sponge and believe it or not it can have two ‘lasting’ effects. The brush applicator is useful for a sheer finish and shine control, whereas the sponge is perfect for concealing those unwanted imperfections. So double the magic. The applicators surely must add to the finish, the brushes bristles are soft and light and the sponge is soft but dense. Although it is a little bit on the expensive side of powders at £24.50, I personally think it is really worth it! It lasts for absolutely ages; a year on and I still have a lot left considering how often I use it! this way you don’t spend on useless, promise-breaking ones that let you down all the time.
All these benefits, but there’s more. This summer, hoping we have one, you want to look good as well as be protected, SPF 15 baby! Yes, it really has all the benefits. This is a good reason as any to march into a store and pick it up! This is definitely an item I wish to carry on using in the future, it may serve you well too.
