Benefit Hello Flawless!

While Beyoncé would have us believe otherwise, it’s not our habit to “wake up flawless” every morning. It requires a little artistry to help us see past the occasional blemish or less-than-perfect undereye. Thankfully, there’s a quick fix that doesn’t look like one: Benefit Cosmetics’ Hello Flawless. The easy-to-blend powder builds from sheer to full coverage—for a finish so natural and convincing, no one will know that your flawlessness comes from a compact.

Wasn't impressed
Purchased

I have loved every benefit product I've ever sampled or bought but I was not impressed with this powder. It may work well for different skin types but I didn't feel like it did a good job of covering my blemishes or evening my skin tone. The product itself did not last long and the powder broke very easily. Not what I expected of the brand or price.

Good for a setting powder
Purchased

I ordered Hello Flawless! to use as a top/setting powder over my liquid foundation. The first thing I noticed is that the powder itself is not densely packed and as soon as you touch it with the brush it dispenses product, which makes for a messy hand and sometimes makeup area! Other than that I agree that it is easy to blend from sheer to full coverage. On my skin it looks somewhat cakey after about an hour and dries out my face, even with lotion and primer before.

Flawless

I don't recommend this product to anyone with dry skin. It did make me look a little orange side. I wish the powder was a little easier to apply. The consistancy is very sheer unless you really rub that brush into the compact.

Natural

I really love this natural-looking product. It is not so powdery and easy to blend. I can use it over foundation or by itself.

Good Product
Purchased

The blending powder is great, but the product does not last nearly as long as the Lancome dual impact powder I usually purchase.

Super light, but covers well
Purchased

I love all things Benefit, so I am biased towards this powder. It does everything it says it will do, depending on how you apply. I do wish a smaller version was available, because I'd love to carry it with me in my smaller clutches.

Great Product!

I love this for light coverage to smooth out my skin tone. It gets rid of slight redness and any shine and is very easy to apply which makes my mornings run much better! I do not use it on any areas of my face that are dry though because it will emphasize the dryness. Also, adding more that a lighter coverage may look slightly cakey. So, while not perfect for everything I love to use this when I want a quick, even skin tone during the daytime or night.

Nice Full Coverage
Purchased

I bought this product to replace my old finishing powder (drugstore brand). This product is definitely heavier than I thought it would be. It covers so well and nicely smooths my complexion when I use a lighter BB cream. However, you have to be careful to blend it or it looks cakey. Overall a good product.

Nice, not the best
Purchased

I was looking for a new powder concealer after L'Oreal's true match naturale mineral concealer was no longer available in local stores. This was the only powder concealer I had found. I give it 4 stars because that's about how good it is to me comparatively--4 out of 5. It doesn't have quite as much coverage/concealing ability as my old product. It does have a decent matching ability; didn't look too yellow on my pale/pink skin (I got the Ivory color, so I was hoping for that).
The applicators they give you are ineffective for actual concealment--the sponge just soaks it up and gives hard edges to blend away, which blends away the concealment, and the brush is useless for anything besides doing a powder finish (but why waste expensive concealer when you can do a set finish with cheaper powder?). I end up using a finger or an eyeshadow brush for blemishes in particular.
Overall, it's fairly effective, but I will go back to buying my old product online once I run out of this.

Love!
Purchased

It is very natural and blends well. It matches my skin perfectly. Only con is that it is powdery and a little messy after putting product on brush. However, I will buy this product again.
