Finally, we can follow Rihanna’s lead and “shine bright like a diamond” with this skin-brightening liquid foundation. A beauty editor favorite, it delivers oil-free moisture and a smooth, flawless finish that’s true to its name. Formulated with SPF 25, it protects skin while creating the gorgeous glow of a precious gem (or a multiplatinum pop star).
This foundation applied very nicely on my skin and felt very light. But the coverage wasn't enough for me liking and made my face appear orange. This sample didn't have me convinced to buy a full size...especially for the price.3
I color ivory matched me pretty well and it blended will and stay all most of the day.4
I got a small tube of this in the Sephora set called "How to look the best at everyhing" from Benefit. I like this foundation, but it's really not my favorite. It is a little runny so I found applying with fingertips is the best. I have normal to oily skin and this gives a nice glow, but after a hour or so that glow turns into an oily shine (even with the Porefessional primer underneath). It stays pretty well through blotting throughout the day but if it wasn't for some serious powder on top I wonder how well it would really do. I liked being able to get a smaller size in the set to try it out since I probably won't be buying the full size.4
I've never received a liquid foundation sample that I liked. Ever. Until now.
I'm 48, with fantastic fair skin (I've hardly ever gone in the sun), no breakouts, and only small lines around my eyes (so far!). This foundation stays where I put it (using a mineral powder to set it), actually does make my skin look younger (is it that plumping thing they talk about?), and does not look cakey or thick by 3pm like some other products I've used. I have a little rosacea on my cheeks, and darkness around my eyes and nose, and this covers and evens everything out very nicely.
Very happy to have received this sample - now I need to increase my beauty budget so I can pay for a 3x more expensive foundation! But I think it's time I've accepted that what I've been using for the past 20 years, is not going to continue to work as my skin ages. I'm ok with that - just glad I found a product that seems to do the job!
Thanks Birchbox! And in my first box too!!!
I don't love the product for everyday because I don't think it has great coverage. I do think its perfect for a day you are lounging around and want light coverage, it takes redness away from your skin but doesn't cover sun freckles.3
I really liked this product. I have only worn it for a few days but I like that it's very light, perfect for summer. Some foundation can be very heavy but with this, I can barely tell I'm wearing any...it blends very nicely and really does lighten.5
I love Benefit products, but this one left me a little disappointed. It was thicker than I wanted it to be, and the pump on the bottle made it hard to regulate how much came out. The shade was lighter than my skin tone as well.2
I have extremely oily skin, therefore liquid foundation isn't something I regularly wear. However, I love benefit so I plan on using the entire sample to see if I like it better than others that I have tried.4
Love it. Very lightweight but good coverage. Will be purchasing!5
It really is oil free and smooth as they claim and I did think it brightened. However it was not enough color to conceal or use as foundation so I'm still working out where in my beauty regimen this product goes...4
