Say “hello” to flawless NEW packaging! Now in an improved magnetic-close compact, this famous powder cover-up glides on naturally sheer and layers beautifully for customized coverage. Perfect for any skin type, the silky formula comes with a newly-designed brush and a sponge for any degree of coverage you desire.*Please note product packaging may vary from photos.
My Experience with Benefit Hello Flawless:
This is a fine-textured pressed powder, which gives coverage like a powder foundation but still feels light on the skin. Also, the shade selection is good, with all undertones included. For my fair to medium skin which has yellow undertone, “I am cute as a bunny,” Honey shade matched perfectly. I have combination skin, so I like my powder to keep my T zone matte and not make the other parts of my face looking too dry, and this powder does that job very well.
It feels light, does not accentuate dryness and keeps my nose oil free for 3-4 hours. Since it claims that it provides full coverage – to demonstrate that I have applied it on my birthmark on my hand. As you can see in the picture, when applied with a brush, it gives sheer coverage, still hides the mark to some extent.
When applied with a sponge, it gives full coverage and the mark is not visible. So, it does pass the coverage test with flying colours. In my opinion, it did make my skin flawless (i.e., in terms of full coverage, brightening the skin, keeping the oil away) and stayed on my skin for 5-6 hours. It did fade away on my nose first as that is the oiliest area on my face.
It comes in a cute looking small box with an in-built mirror. It has one brush and one sponge included which can be used for sheer coverage application and full coverage application respectively. The powder is so soft that when I use my brush, some product gets to the edges and gets wasted at times. So, if it’s travel friendly, I still doubt and for this price, I don’t want to take risks either. It also has SPF 15 which is an added bonus. I would recommend this to everyone who is looking for a lightweight powder which can give full coverage and if you are ready to splurge, this is the right choice for you.
