Benefit 'Hello Flawless' Liquid Foundation


So I bought the much awaited 'Hello Flawless' foundation from the Benefit counter in 'Ivory - I'm Pure 4 Sure'.

It is a very runny foundation, when I first pressed the pump down I got it absolutely everywhere! But that could also be down to me being generally messy :) It's a light to medium coverage foundation, which I quite like for daytime wear, but it is very buildable so can be layered up to create a higher coverage.

I used my Real Techniques stippling brush to apply it. I dot the foundation over my face, then blend it in using small circles with the brush.

Overall, I really like this foundation. I think the shade is a good match for my skin, the coverage is variable depending on what you feel like, and it has lasted all day.

If anyone has any questions about it, just leave a comment and I'll respond :)
(Sorry about my chavvy hair and hoodie, very glamorous I know!)

My lovely boyfriend surprised me today and bought me the domain name, he said he was going to tell me about it when I got to 100 followers, but I had a rubbish day today so he told me about it to cheer me up :D

Ps. has anyone got any tips to get rid of puffy eye bags? Makeup obviously covers up dark circles but I need a cure for puffy eyes! Help please :)


  1. Cold tea spoons from the fridge- used it on my sisters wedding day.

  2. I really want to try this!

  3. Two wet tea bags, one on each eye and just lie there for ten minutes. You end up looking like a prat but it's always helped for me!

    1. I agree with her!

      btw, congrats on the domain name.I plan to buy one when I can manage to not buy shoes for one month:P

  8. Thanks for all the lovely comments and puffy eye suggestions! :)
    Sleep would be the ideal option but unfortunately it's not always possible :( haha so today I'm going to get the cold spoons and teabags out! x

  9. I have only one brush xd your makeup is perfect!

  10. I keep seeing the real techniques brushes everywhere, tempting me to buy them so much!! But they're not stocked in my local boots :( As for tips, apparently putting ice cubes, covered in a cloth/teatowel on them is meant to help, never tried it myself though so I can't say for certain x

  11. benefit foundation tube is so cute, would have thoguht it was topshop! my tip is to refrigerate your eye cream and apply it every morning to help reduce puffyness. PS. what kind of fashion promotion do you do as im currently studying fashion marketing x

  12. Your foundation does look flawless, so i'm guessing it does what is says on the tin!

  13. I really want to try this but don't think they do one pale enough for me :( boooo
