This is another great product from benefit! The shade is a lovely coral-pink that can be flattering on many complexions. Whats really great is that you can build up the intensity of the coral-go from a slight flush to a full on coral lip. Pretty on the cheeks as well, only you have to blend it in thoroughly! Plus, the bottle is going to last a while. Great for gals that like their makeup done in under 15 minutes!
Loved that it's coral, flush, pretty, summer

This is the best lipstick I have ever used. Although its silky finish, it has long lasting power and its very pigmented. I bought rocket pop, and before receiving it I was worried it would be more of a light, dusty pink and wouldn't flatter me (i don't like lipstick that is lighter than my skin). I was pleasantly surprised! The shade is soft enough for every day wear, yet it can also be built up into something more dramatic for going out. I like how it gives me that just-kissed look. Also, its moisturizing! A definite plus. I actually like this lipstick more than Benefit's full finish lipstick.

I already own Dandelion, Bella Bamba and SugarBomb, so I bought Hervana only because I'm developing an obsession with Benefit box-o-powders. I have to say I like it quite a lot, but would only wear it out at night. I'm very pale, and I LOVE Dandelion -its pretty much the blush I wear every day. Hervana is a much deeper, rose flush, that looks as if you are actually blushing or you just ran around the block. Its very dramatic, but pretty none the less. I will definitely wear it on a night out. Plus, it smells fantastic.
Loved that it's flushed, vibrant, wonderfully scented, pretty

I am a Badgal mascara fan, so I bought this on a whim hoping it would be better than the Badgal. Sadly, They're real didn't impress me enough to have me pay that extra 4 dollars every time. Although I can see how this mascara works wonders for people with really short lashes (my friend bought one too and she loves it), my lashes are long enough that they only get kinda spidery and clumpy looking. Though I must say that even though its a little clumpy, it does not flake and get under the eyes like so many other mascaras do. And it lasts all day looking exactly as when you first put it on. Still, Badgal makes my lashes look more natural and soft, so I will be sticking to Badgal for sure.
Loved that it's dramatic, lengthening, Long Lasting

brightening foundation thats great for dry skin

Benefit products are usually my favourite, yet I find that hello flawless and some kind of gorgeous are little rough on dry skin. So, I was a little hesitant in purchasing Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow...but I'm glad I did.
Here are the pros and cons (but mostly pros):
Pros: This foundation is SUPER light weight. It blends in and evens out skin tone while brightening the complexion. A little goes a long way. It also stays very well, and feels as if its blended in with your skin and you're not wearing anything at all. It doesn't cover up freckles, and seriously looks like your skin only better. Also, unlike Benefits other foundation products, it does NOT dry out my face. Usually, I have dry patches on my nose and chin at the end of the day, but this foundation appears to actually hold in the skins moisture.
Cons: I can see how the next shade up (I got IVORY) could be too yellow. My shade is even a little yellow, though after blending it in a bit the yellowness actually helps bright my complexion. However, this could be a problem for you ladies with pink undertones. Also, its you have oily skin I can see how this foundation could gradually fade or mix in with the oil, because it seems to almost moisturize super dry skin. Last, it is light to medium coverage, so those with serious acne will not benefit for this foundation.
Alright, time to end my super long review!
Overall, great product from Benefit! For those ladies who need lighter coverage and a little moisture in their foundation. Best foundation I've used so far!
Loved that it's light, glow, Moisturizing, Long Lasting

beautiful shades

I bought this lipstick in espionage, hoping that the colour wouldn't be too pigmented and dark for my fair complexion, yet it would still give me a vampy look. That is exactly what it did.
The shade is incredibly beautiful, and you can build up the colour to whatever level of drama you wish. It can work on a variety of skin tones, which is the best part.
One thing though: You MUST exfoliate and add some lip balm before applying this lipstick, because you lips must be moisturized. The lipstick isn't very moisturizing, so if you don't take the time to prep your lips it could end up looking chalky and dry.
Apart from that, GREAT product. I'm planning to try every shade.
Loved that it's gorgeous, pigmented, lively

This is by far my favourite blush. Nothing compares. Its light and brightens up my face. I also swipe it on my eyelids in the morning before applying BADGAL in plum, and it acts as a beautiful barely-there eyeshadow. Must have. Plus, it smells amazing.
Loved that it's amazing, glow

This powder is not suitable for dry skin. It will make your skin dryer. I bought 'champagne' as it was far to yellow toned. I wish there was more shade variety.

being fairly fair skinned, I bought this product not really knowing what to expect (most of the reviews are from medium skinned women). So, here's a small list of pros and cons about buying this is you are a fairer skinned woman.
Pros: its a pretty, shimmery gold highlighter with a velvety texture. You don't need much, so it looks like it will last a while. The gold colour can be used as eyeshadow, which is really nice.
Cons: it is not suitable for dry skin, because it will not blend well and it will make skin drier. It is not suitable for very fair skin (you will have gold streaks on your face). It is a little to pricey. It can be very noticeable and unnatural if you are heavy handed.
Overall, I like this product. I need to be careful with the amount I apply, and, having dry skin, I need to mix it with some moisturizer. I especially like that it can double as creamy eyeshadow. However, fair skinned people beware, this is probably not your highlighter.
Loved that it's pretty shimmery gold

This is a sheer, light coverage that makes your skin feel super fresh! Its not shimmery, which is great, but it does give the skin a nice natural looking glow. Great product for ladies who aren't into heavy makeup. A benefit girl must have!
Loved that it's pretty glow, naturally pretty, light

"hello flawless!" powder or hello flawless oxygen wow liquid foundation?

Which of these appears more naturally and long lasting, if I wanna have a very light-weighting and fresh feel for an every day schooling make up? Can they last for a big school day? say 8am to 8pm maybe...
I'd go with Oxygen Wow, especially if you want a natural glowing look. If you can afford it, buy the powder for quick touch-ups during the day. If you want to pick only one, Oxygen Wow is def. the better of the two. Hope this helps!

Best shade for fair complexion?

I'm fair-skinned with hazel eyes and blonde hair. What would be the best shade for a natural look?
Rocket Pop would look really nice. It's like a natural shade of pink that just makes your natural lip colour look darker. If you want something pretty and more pink, but still fairly natural, Nice Knickers is really great.

Is this for Acne Prone skin?

I have a tendency to break out if using something too heavy or oily on my face. Would you recommend this product? I currently use Hello Flawless alone but is really lightweight and it starts to fall off after a while. I want a primer that will smooth out my face and give a little bit more coverege when combined with Hello Flawless but do not want the cacky, heavy feel, nor do I want to break out. Thanks!
If you are looking for a bit more coverage without the heavy feel, I would go with a spot concealer like bo-oing or erase paste. That gal doesn't give more coverage; it brightens your face so that Hello Flawless can cover imperfections more effectively. I don't think this product will make you break out, because it is very light weight. However, if you have really sensitive skin it might react to the fragrance. From what you've told me, I'd recommend getting this product only if you paired it up with Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow, than set it with a fluff brush swipe of Hello Flawless. If you don't like liquid foundation, I recommend you look into getting the spot concealer and pair it with your Hello Flawless.

Hope this helped!!

How dark is Espionage?

I'm looking for a blackberry colour that isn't too black. This looks good and I love Benefit- how is espionage? Also, how is it on the lips, how is the scent/flavor, and how long does it last?
Espionage is amazing if you want a sultry, vampy look. Def. recommend it!

Would this be suitable for olive complexions?

I am of Middle Eastern origin, so I have an olive complexion. Most people who used this seemed to have fair skin. Is this suitable for me as well?
Yes. This product will adjust to your skin tone and if you a nice, natural flush. My best friend is Jamaican, and it even works on her.

Over makeup?

I was just wondering, can you use this as a highlighter on cheeks and brow like you would with girl meets pearl? It just seems a little pointless to have a lovely pink colour spread across your face, only to be covered with foundation afterwards?
This product is a primer for your makeup. It will help your makeup last longer, and it will make your face glow. It is not meant to be used as a highlighter, like girl meets pearl. :)

Super Fair!!?

I have seen tons of pictures of girls wearing this but most of them seemed to have tans what if you have super pale skin would it be to strong of a color?
Nope, that gal is colourless primer that evens out your skin tone. It will just make your skin appear brighter, thats all. :)

Is this product oil-free?

I tends to have breakouts on and off so I'm wondering if this product is non-comedogenic and oil-free? Thanks!
No, its not. Although I also tend to break out, and this product did not make me break out at all. Hope this helps!
