My Views on Benefit One Hot Minute Sexy in Seconds Face Powder:
After reading all the reviews from different British bloggers, I decided to try this for myself. I went to the Benefit counter in Boots and got a sample to test it out at home, after which I decided to purchase a brand new one from the counter. I really like the product. In simple words, I can say that its “all about getting that natural glowy skin in no time.”
About the packaging of the product, I have always been a fan of Benefit products, I really adore their vintage and modern mixed packaging style. Its unique to this brand I believe. The copper tin is so adorable as you can see from the pictures. The applicator is of no use to me, I use my powder brush from “Real Techniques” to apply this powder.
About the texture of the product, its a silky powder that gives a luminous finish which can be called a “natural glow instantly.” Its not shimmery or glittery as some people say. It immediately highlights your skin tone giving a sleeky shine. It can be used by fair as well as medium skin toned people. It can be worn alone or over make up, I prefer to use it alone.
Benefit describes this powder to be a loose rose-gold finishing powder, I totally agree. When I take the powder, it blends really well onto my skin and disappears thereby leaving an angel-struck glow on the area 😛
If you find that it is more of a glittery one, that means you have used too much product. You just need a very little amount for the entire face, if you use the right amount, it won’t look glittery.
It works as a highlighter too. See the swatches for more information, I am also including a picture of mine after dabbing the powder onto my face.
Pros of Benefit One Hot Minute Sexy in Seconds Face Powder:
- Excellent packaging.
- Comes with an applicator.
- Gives instant glow.
- Does not irritate skin.
- Suitable to all skin tones.
- Full ingredient list mentioned.
Cons of Benefit One Hot Minute Sexy in Seconds Face Powder:
- Availability in India might be an issue.

Overall, I liked the product so much and highly recommend this to everyone.
