For years I have searched for the perfect powder coverup to disguise blemishes and shine. This summer I decided to try Benefit’s Hello Flawless out on the recommendation of a neighbour and I haven’t looked back since.
Benefit was one of the first makeup brands I trusted way back when and very rarely have I been disapointed with anything that I have picked up from one of their counters. At the moment the shade ‘all the world’s my stage’ beige is perfect for my skin colour as I’m a little pale and blends really well with my favourite BB Creams and Foundations.
For day-to-day use I use a big, fluffy, domed powder brush from the Makeup by HD Brows collection and lightly dust the powder all over the face for a light, sheer coverage. This powder is really versitile though as well and you can build it up for full coverage for evening wear and apply with a sponge for a concealer effect which I find works wonders on the under eye area.
I’ve never felt that this looked to flaky or wished it stayed around longer which are the main reasons none of it’s predecessors have stayed around for very long.
There are two other products that compliment the Hello Flawless powder; the Stay Flawless Primer & Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup which I am yet to try and I can’t wait to get my hands on as I am interested to see how they work together and if they enhance the pwder at all.
The Hello Flawless Powder Cover-up is £25.50 but I got 4 months everyday wear out of my last purchase so I definitely feel I can justify this.
What’s your favourite powder? Do you use alone or over another product?
