Hello Flawless

Wednesday, 11 July 2012

I am a real suffer of an oily T zone. I have tried may different foundations that claim to combat this, but have unfortunalty not been able to find one that lasts well without a powder.

I am not a great fan of powder, as I do not like the look it gives your skin, I have always felt that it clings to every tiny hair that you have on my face and makes me look awful! During my Benefit Haul (see previous post), I was introduced to 'Hello Flawless' which is a powder cover up. If I am honest, I only bought it as I felt that I should, the beauty assistant swore by it.

I popped it in my bag and never gave it a second look until recently, I was at an important meeting at work on a stuffy and hot day. I had looked in the mirror and could see my foundation melting off, I needed to act quick so grabed out my powder and gave it a go.

I was so surprised how much I loved it, and so quickly, usually it takes me a couple of applications. In the box you get two different applicators, a sponge to pat onto red spots and blemishes, and a brush to use over the rest of your face, it instantly gave me a 'just done my makeup' look and made my makeup last until the end of the day. I was also so pleased that it did not give me a hairy face! I also love the packaging, I do think that you pay for the quirkiness of benefit at times... but I still love it :-)

What do you think of powder? do you use it all the time? what is your favorite powder?

  1. This is a translucent powder, right? I have one of those from too faced and i love it in summer. My skin is so oily and it is perfect for touch ups during the day without making your foundation look cakey!

  4. Can't live without it and I always have a spare one just in case! This powder gets more amazing when it breaks! I didn't love the product at first but mine fell down and broke the powder. It became a loose powder and I fell in love with it :D
