Hey hey!!! How’s everyone doing?! Surviving the freezing cold?! I don’t know about you but I am totally over winter… O.V.E.R.!!!
Soooo a couple of weeks ago I placed an order on the Sephora website to buy my trustee Clinique Moisture Surge (haul here) and at check-out I ended up with Benefit’s Hello Flawless foundation in my basket as well….. yah, don’t ask!
I’ve to be honest here, the main reason why I bought it is the packaging. I absolutely love the see-through opaque bottle, I love that is has a pump, I love….the font!!!! It’s cute, and I like having it on my vanity :D
‘Hello Flawless’ is a light to medium coverage foundation, very light weight and liquidy – it reminds me of Chanel’s Vita Lumiere Aqua foundation. Application wise, I tried using my Sephora #55 Airbrush brush first, then the Beauty Blender, and lastly Sigma’s F80 Flat Top Kabuki brush - among all three I prefer the second and third tool. With the Sephora brush I get a very light and sheer coverage (not my favorite!), whereas the Beauty Blender and Sigma’s F80 pack on more product on my skin and the coverage is definitely more towards the medium side, which I prefer.
I like to damped my Beauty Blender with MAC’s Fix Plus first, just one/two sprays, not more than that because otherwise ‘Hello Flawless’ turns to ‘Hello Messy’!!!
Performance wise, this foundation stays on all day- after 10 hours I still look pretty decent so that’s great! As I said in my haul video, ‘Hello Flawless’ is the perfect everyday foundation: quick and easy to apply, with a light/medium coverage ideal for a no-makeup makeup kind of look!
