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).
I have tried this product before and I still find to have strong positive qualities but I have certain needs in a foundation that this does not fulfill.
I'm not crazy about the Benefit line in general, but this foundation is one of their better products. Its texture is smooth and blends well. I found it looks quite natural. I don't feel it to be excessively heavy-feeling on my skin, although I wouldn't say it's terribly light, either.
Personally, I have exceptionally oily skin so I really need something that focuses on mattifying and/or long wear (even when using a mattifying primer and powder), and this doesn't. At least, not to the degree that I need. Also, the shade Birchbox sent me was a bit to dark for my light to medium skin.
I used You Rebel by benefit which is a tinted moisterizer. I actually like this just as much and prefer the packaging over the tube style. It's light--not greasy/thick, but still adds color.4
This product was extremely light weight. It gave me flawless skin and perfectly matched my skin tone. It last for a solid 12 hours without any touchups needed. A little also went a long way!5
I really did enjoy this product. I think that it provided nice coverage and felt light on my skin. The sample texture was runnier than I had expected, but I didn't mind it. I would consider purchasing it in the future.4
This product is very light and it goes on well but I do not think that it leaves a very natural looking finish. You could tell that I had put makeup on after applying it. It last a long time tho and it did not move or smudge until I washed it off at the end of the day. It is a good product just not for me and the finish is not what i prefer.3
I received a sample of this in my birch box this month. The color they sent me was nutmeg which is the darkest color they make. I have medium/light skin tone so I couldn't really test the item. I swatched it on my wrist and the texture seamed nice but overall I couldn't really try the item because it was SO dark and not even close to my skin tone.3
This is by far my favorite sample from the July box. It is a beautiful product with seamless coverage, true complexion matching, and amazing staying power! I will defintiely be getting a full sized product ASAP. Would highly recommend.5
I bought this foundation earlier this year from Sephora and after trying it, returned it. I don't know what I was expecting, but I wasn't wow-ed. It was no different than the drugstore brand I use at 1/3 of the cost. There are several Benefits products I love that I use daily, but this didn't impress me. I will definitely use it until the sample is gone because I do like it, but not enough to buy it.3
longtime benefit lover and this is another great product. also LOVEd how big of sample I received of this in my birchbox. i dont use foundation like this usually but really like it- going to wait until my sample runs out before purchasing5
I was really happy with this foundation. I normally wear bb cream or more recently cc cream as my daily make up. Foundations are often to heavy for my personal taste but this on was great! It went on smooth and light but with good coverage and lasted all day. If I ever switch from my cc cream I will keep this in mind for sure!5
