Benefit - How To Look The Best At Everything

Hello Friends,

Hope the week is going great for all of you, for me its pretty hectic, balancing work home and what not. 

Recently I had posted about my Sephora Haul from China,  in which there was this beautiful kit of " How to Look The Best At Everything by Benefit". This kit comes in three shades  Light, Medium and Deep. 

As per my skin-tone, I chose to go with Medium shade which I feel would be apt for me. I love the idea of receiving more than one product in a package but at the same time the products being in a miniature size makes it too cute to use them .

What it is:
A four-piece flawless complexion makeup kit exclusive to Sephora.

What it does:
Benefit’s custom skin perfectors come together in this convenient kit to give you an even, luminous complexion. Blend away imperfections and minimize the appearance of pores with the must-haves in this collection.

This set contains:
- 0.25 oz The POREfessional
- 0.23 oz Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow SPF 25 PA+++ in "I'm so Money!" Honey Foundation
- 2 x 0.05 oz Boi-ing in 03 and 04 - Concealer
- 0.14 oz "Hello Flawless!"I’m Cute as a Bunny" Honey - Setting Powder 
- Black color small cute brush 

Price : $ 32

My Take on Benefit - How To Look Good At Everything

The packaging is super cute, compact and adorable, more like a book and apt to carry around while traveling without worrying much about spilling the content. It has everything that you need to create a right base. Since this is more like a travel kit so everything inside is in a miniature size (travel size) products. If you haven't tried Benefit products earlier than this kit is very good to start with.

It has got a generous size mirror to do your make up effortlessly without any hiccups. There is also a small booklet attached which shows you the tips and tricks of using this kit.

Porefessional Primer :  I have reviewed Porefessional Primer earlier on my blog hence I will straight away jump to foundation. 

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation in "I'm so Money!" Honey : It comes in a small plastic bottle with a pump dispenser which makes it easier to use.  Light in weight and gives medium coverage, blends well without looking patchy or cakey. I am quiet loving this foundation, absorbs well and gives a matte finish which lasts for 6-7 hrs without your T-zone getting oily.

Boi-ing  Concealer : Comes in two shades Boi-ing 03 and 04, that's what they have named it.  Comes in a creamy texture and would be advisable to apply it over a moisturized skin for better results. Another great thought of including two different shades of concealer in a kit, you can create your own custom made concealer by mixing both.  For me, Boi-ing 03 is way to bright for my dark circles and the other one (Boi-ing 4) I mix it with Orange Brightener to get the desired results.

"Hello Flawless!"I’m Cute as a Bunny" Honey - Setting Powder : This is such a lovely setting powder and the show stopper in this whole box, I am totally hooked on to it. The texture is soft, smooth and the powder is milled so fine that it really sets the foundation well and gives you a very satisfying outcome.

All this along with a cute little Black brush and a built in mirror, like I said pretty much everything you need to get your base ready.  What I like about this kit is, more or less you can move all the products from the kit except the foundation setting powder which is super cool. If it suits your skin tone then this kit is an awesome buy.

SP Rating :4/5

Final Verdict 

Benefit has some pretty awesome product, quality wise also,  they are great. They keep coming with such creative ideas which is quiet appealing and tempting.  Just with three shades in this range and catering to such huge broad spectrum of people, it might not meet everyone's requirement. If the shades are apt as per your skin tone then this kit is something you should try and if you like it, you can always go for a full size product.

I would certainly recommend this to everyone.
