PLEASE bring it back!!!

Location: San Diego, CA

Get Even was hands down the best powder I've ever found... I'm STILL looking for a replacement. PLEASE bring it back!! I'm sorry to say Hello Flawless is NOT the same & is an inferior product.

Location: Wilmington, NC

I am over 50; blue eyes; fair combination skin. Get Even was a daily part of my makeup ritual for the past 10 years or more. Bottom line is that IT WORKED and gave my skin a nice, even finish and kept the oil under control on my nose. Nothing works better than this powder! Please, please reconsider and bring this amazing product back. Thanks for listening (I hope!)

Yes, bring "Get Even" Benefit back!

Location: Spain

I have not found anything which rivalled "Get Even!" It prevents me from buying an of your other products as I live in fear of you discontinuing them! Please, just bring it back - I´d pay double, honestly I would for bulk buy of "Get Even!"

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING THIS BACK!!! I get new products need to come in but this tops any other new product. I've noticed some other products came back, so maybe this will too... or just for a limited time... PLEASE IT WAS AMAZING!!!

I have been using this product since I was 16 years old (I'm now 33) and have not found anything that compares to this superior powder. I'm exremely dissapointed because people always complimented how great my skin looked and now I will just have to look ugly without it! :( Benefit is doing a terrible disservice to it's customers!

So sad!

Location: Montreal, QC, Canada

I'm very disapointed to learn that this product will no longer be available. It was fantastic and nothing you have to offer compares to this, I've tried it all! Too bad, I'll have to look somewhere else... :(

How Can They Treat Customers This Way?!?

Location: Minneapolis, MN

I cannot believe that they would discontinue this product! There is such a huge number of customers that have found this to be the best product on the market for them. Including myself, this is the most perfect match for my skin type, skin color, and the performance of this product is unmatched. Nothing else even comes close to the ideal function of this product. They obviously do NOT care about all of the disappointed customers that will have nothing else to replace it with. I cannot believe they actually tried to suggest some other products to use in place of it, which is sub-standard and do not compare to that one. There is no replacement product that they make to replace this. The best way to replace it would be to reverse the discontinuation of this product and put it back on the market exactly as it was for so many years. Obviously if so many people were buying this product for so many years, and they knew how important it was to us, and they still choose to discontinue it, then it clearly shows they only care about the "bottom line" and not showing appreciation and respect for customers.

Best powder ever

Location: Sydney NSW, Australia

I just received mine today.. Tried it n boom , it's really the best powder ever n unlike other powders it's not Cakey , very light yet effective.. The only downside was it's available only in light shade while I'm medium tone.

Do not discontinue

Location: Hawaii

Out of all the powders in the world get even medium or #2 is the best in the world. I just love to get even. Everything I like from benefit they discontinue, and personally it just makes me just want to get even. I just love getting even but now i can't if they take it off the market.-slowly at makeup counters I noticed them taking it off the shelves and I am saddened and very disappointed. Like how am I supposed to get even now??? In my life I always have felt that the best thing is getting even. You know the saying don't get mad get even? Well now you can't and the world will just be mad. I beg of you benefit bring it back, life will be complicated if we cannot get even.

Sooo heartbroken!!

Location: Germany

I am so, so, soooo upset over the news about this product being discontinued!! Whyyyyy?!! I've been using Get Even for about 10 years. I fell in love with it from the first time I visited the Benefit Cosmetic's counter and had a make over. So upset. So heartbroken!

Jan 22, 2015

Why Discontinue?

Location: UK

Get Even was discontinued in the UK over a year ago and i've been purchasing it from the US ever since. I'm gutted the US are now discontinuing this product. What is the alternative to customers? I've been using the powder for so long, and it was a life saver. Totally gutted - Why have you done this Benefit?!?!

Oct 29, 2014

bye guys

Location: mn

I have spent tons of money on your products. No more. This product is perfect and you don't care about your customers. I'm out

Bring it back!

Only powder that was perfect for my problem skin and matched my skin tone, perfectly! I need more!

Shocked and Disappointed

Location: Greenville, SC

I have also been using Get Even for over 10 years, and as a result tend to use mostly Benefit products. At a minimum I would have expected Benefit to have some sort of recommendation on what to use now. Hopefully I will find another make-up line that has something similar, but sadly, as another customer indicated, I will likely end up buying most of my other cosmetic needs with that line.

Oct 11, 2014


Location: Charlotte, NC, USA

I can't believe this is being discontinued. It's perfect. I'm with the others who will abandon Benefit because of this treachery. There are tons of great mascaras, blushes, glosses, etc out there...but there was only one truly fab yellow-based pressed powder. I'm placing my last order now, then it's buh-bye!

Please don't discontinue

Location: Undisclosed

I understand that you need to make space for new products but why discontinuing a product that is so loved by your customers?

Aug 24, 2014


Location: NC

Please do not discontinue this powder! It is the only one that covers, gets rid of shine, hides breakouts, and does not cake into creases!! PLEASE! I'm begging. I've tried the other high end brands but they are too sheer, not yellow-based, or just cakey, so I can't be without this powder. It is my #1 Benefit product and if I can't get it anymore, I will no longer be a customer of any of your other products... they are replaceable, this is not. You should listen to your customers. I'm a marketing professor who teaches the value of listening to the customer..... ruining your base in favor of innovation never works. Many former #1 organizations are now out of existence for this very reason.

Great product, what will replace it???

Location: San Francisco, CA, USA

I too have been using Get Even powder for 15+ years. I don't wear much make up and have uneven skin tone due to sun exposure. This is the only powder I have found that works great, feels great and looks great and I am in total disbelief that Benefit would discontinue such a staple in their foundation line. I have to agree with the others, if I have to go somewhere else for my powder I may as well get my other make up from the other company. I love the fun that comes with the Benefit products but unfortunately they are forcing their customers somewhere else. Hope they reconsider after reading all the comments here on their website.

Location: Undisclosed

I found this product when I was 20 and I haven't been without it in a decade. For God's sake, don't get rid of this, are you kidding me? This powder is magical and I have been a loyal customer because of it. Benefit will lose a lot of customers if they decide to stop making this.

Aug 2, 2014

why have you discontinued?

Location: Uk

Great product- have used this for years, The alterative you have come up with 'hello flawless' is pretty awful. I used to buy a lot of Benefit products but will no longer be a customer as you have no regard for customer loyalty.

Best Product

Location: Chicago, IL

I really want to be able to purchase this product again. it is THE BEST powder I have ever used. I am so disappointed the product has been discontinued. From the other reviews I am reading it seems Benefit Cosmetics doesn't really care about the pretty massive positive ratings this product has received. Hopefully the company will stop being stubborn and listen to their customers and bring this product back. After all, customer service is all abut keeping the customer. What a simple way to keep customers.

Buying this product for almost 15 years

Location: Garden Grove, CA

I first purchased this product on a trip to London for the millennium celebration at the end of 1999 and have not been without it since then. Now, I'm finishing up the last bit of my Get Even #2 and I am so deeply disappointed in Benefit Cosmetics for their superficial decision to close out a product that so many people have been committed to purchasing for a very long time. This product is the reason I keep coming back to your company for purchases. I occasionally try other new products you offer but find you discontinue products far too easily and with no thought about the satisfaction of your customers. How can such a practical and important product fall out of style? Because I've seen you discontinue products I use several times over the years, Benefit Cosmetics, but they were never products I depend on so much each day, I am altogether quitting you. It appears your leadership is truly as superficial as the names they like to give some of the products you sell. It would be so nice to know that you're as committed to your customers as they are to you in this case, but it's clear you're not.

My Favorite Powder Ever!

Location: San Diego

This is an excellent product - the best foundation powder I have ever used but unfortunately I will not be buying any Benefit products in the future since they have discontinued this.

Feb 24, 2014


Location: New York, NY

I was so upset this was gone from my local stores! I tried other powder's but they were terrible or I broke out. The flawless powder you now have has terrible packing and makes me feel like a child, so I refused to buy it. PLEASE PLEASE keep making this!

The best powder ever

Location: TX

So for months I haven't seen this in Sephora or Ulta, I figured it was discontinued. Imagine my happy surprise when I saw it on this website (why I didn't come here before, who knows). Anyway, the past 6-8 months has been filled with heartbreak of powders that DO NOT measure up to Get Even at all. I love that I can just put on a little concealer and this powder and my skin looks fabulous. Please, please, please, if anyone at Benefit HQ is reading this, don't discontinue this product. My face and wallet will have the sads forever.

Love that it takes the redness away.

Location: Concord, CA, USA

I have sun damaged skin. I love that this project removes the redness and provides a matte finish. I can keep my skin looking great all day. Heard that this product was going away. Please, please, don,t take my favorite product away !

Great Powder

Location: Wake Forest, NC, USA

I can do without this powder. It gives a perfect finish and does not settle in creases.

Aug 5, 2013

Please, please keep offering this product!

Location: los angeles, ca

I really don't like foundation but need to cover some redness. This is the only product I have found that covers the redness on my cheeks without appearing cakey or overly made-up. I pat it on and in a few minutes, the redness disappears. I wear medium even though my skin is closer in color to light. For me, it covers the redness more thoroughly. And it helps control shine - added bonus!

Jul 30, 2013


Location: Seattle

THIS IS THE PERFECT PRODUCT. PLEASE don't discontinue it. PLEASE!!! This has happened to me with two of your products already, and it's really disappointing. This is the ONLY powder that works to cover up my redness without looking too heavy or cakey. PLEASE! Listen to your faithful customers!!!!!!!!!!

Jul 10, 2013

Please don't go!!

Location: Toronto, ON, Canada

After discovering that this product will be discontinued, I went to Sephora to get a colour match made (they carry everything right??). Based on my skin colour, and that i was looking for a pressed powder, this is the ONLY product that came up as a perfect match for me. I love that it's light, it has the perfect amount of coverage, doesn't cake on and most of all it's exactly my match. To be honest, there isn't even a replacement made in this exact shade Please don't go....

Jul 1, 2013

Love it!!!!

Location: St. Louis, MO

I love this product and have been using it for years. It's been difficult to find lately and now I see from the comments here that it is being discontinued? PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE!!!! I have rosacea and this is the best powder I have found for helping cover the redness. Please reconsider and do not take this away unless you have something wonderful to replace it with!

Jun 6, 2013

Perfect powder

Location: Texas

This powder gives great coverage and a perfect matte finish. I use the light, and it's fabulous--translucent enough to go with most skin tones but just opaque enough to help even out your skin. Granted, I find it most effectively used for setting makeup after foundation and concealer when necessary. Also, I love the compact. It's cute and sleek, and I carry it with me everywhere. I really hope Benefit keeps this one around for a while longer....

My secrets revealed

I love the medium pressed powder and the La La Lift. I have dark circles under my eyes and I use the La La Lift first then the Lemonaide and the final touch is the pressed powder. Hides everything I need to be hidden and I do not look caked on!

loved the fantastic coverage

Location: uk

hi was very disappointed to hear you are discontining this product I have uneven skin tone and this product was a god send. I felt more confident assured all my blemishes were hidden.asian skin comes in various shades but this product just covered all skin tones. please reconsider as it may take me another few years to discover anything as good

Jan 24, 2013

This product lasts very long

Location: San Diego, CA, USA

I love this powder! My skin is a bit oily, has redness, and some acne scars. With this product it makes my skin look smooth and clear. I usually use this product during the summer since my skin gets more tanned. Though, I still wear it with my Hello Flawless during the spring and winter.

Best. Powder. Ever.

Location: Amarillo, TX, USA

After seeing all these great reviews, I can't believe Benefit is discontinuing this amazing product. It mattifies without looking powdery. It evens out skin tone and blends so well. Nothing beats this powder. I purchased one more Get Even powder as a last "hoorah". So sad to see this one go :(

Jan 16, 2013

Most Amazing Powder Ever!

Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA

Benefit, PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE THIS PRODUCT!! This has been my powder for several years and other powders just do not compare. I am so confused why this product will be discontinued. Is there some kind of petition I can sign to advocate for this product? I am deeply saddened and will not be a Benefit customer any longer when this product is no longer available.

Jan 15, 2013

Love this face powder! Great for oily skin.

Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA

I found this product about a year ago at an Ulta store by my house then it seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth. I was so happy to have found it online as the dept. stores and beauty store chains don't seem to carry it anymore. I have combination to oily skin, depending on the weather (I live in SoCal) and this powder really keeps my skin matte ALL DAY. I absolutely love it! I use it as a setting powder and also as a touch up powder throughout the day. It's not as heavy as another famous brand I used to buy BUT the coverage is buildable if you'd like more to suit your needs. I highly recommend this product. I originally purchased shade number 2 which is supposed to be medium but it seemed to be too light for my skin. I made it work anyway since Ulta wouldn't let me exchange without a receipt (they coincidentally changed their return policy at that time) I'm almost done with that shade so I'm going for 3 this time. Try this once and you'll never go back to other heavy, matte powders.

Don't discontinue this wonderful powder

Location: Tacoma, Wa

I have been commited to benefit cosmetics for the past 8+ years and am sadly disappointed that they will be discontinuing this product. Like everyone else, I was wondering why it was so hard to find at Sephora or Macy's and now I know. This powder works beautifully for my fair/medium complexion and covers the redness my skintone sometimes gets. Because of this powder, I switched all my other beauty products to this brand. I've been happy with most of my benefit purchases. I am sad to say that if this powder goes away, I will have to seek other options and switch to another brand of beauty products. What a bummer.

rostro sin brillos

Location: Spain

Lo que yo hago es echarme una bb cream y luego como es inevitable algún brillo pues cojo la brocha y echó estos polvos sobre todo el rostro. Los compré en el tono 1, el más claro, y estoy contento. Mi piel es media clara y me dejan muy muy bien el tono.

Dec 12, 2012

Love this product!!!

Location: Chicago, IL, USA

I just tried and absolutely LOVE this product. I have a large discoloration on my cheek, which can show up dark in certain light. This product helped mattify everything and eliminate the dark shadows! I am sad to hear it is being discontinued, however, I am still able to find it at Benefit Cosmetics in Macy's. Those reps said this product was not being discontinued so it may be a while before it is off shelves. Sephora and Ulta no longer carry, but they offer a smaller selection than actual Benefit

Dec 7, 2012

I love this product!

Location: San Francisco, CA, USA

I was wondering why I couldn't find this product on the Ulta, Sephora or Bloomingdale sites, and now I know why! Please please do not discontinue Get Even! This is my go-to powder...light and provides the perfect amount of coverage. I keep it in my purse every goes where I go!

Best powder in the market

Location: Miami, FL, USA

This powder is my absolute "must" have when it comes to makeup. I use this throughout the day to keep myself looking put together and control the oil on my face. I went to purchase the product yesterday only to find our they are discontinuing it. I'm very dissapointed because again, I rely heavily on this product. I spent an hour at the beauty store yesterday to try and find an appropriate replacement, and out of the 3 or 4 products I've tried so far, I'm just not happy.

Best powder in the world.

Location: United Kingdom

Absolutely love it, texture, packaging, cover, staying power the lot! I'm 32 and have battled for years to find good quality foundations and powders which are light enough for my pale skin and will cover the occasional redness which comes through. Shade 01 is perfect for me. I use it on top of my foundation if i'm going out at night or just on it's own during the day. I like to stipple it on with a brush rather than use the sponge as I find I get the same great coverage just without the "velvet" look if that makes sense. I never ever have to top it up in the day or when out at night, it's staying power is incredible. I'm really surprised this is not a top seller, maybe if more shades where made? Also PLEASE do not discontinue this! I don't know what i'll do without it...I may even stop buying Benefit products out of protest :P and if you do make a replacement product PLEASE have a shade that's equal to 01...I can't use any of your foundations because they are all too dark and I really wish this was not the case as I've heard people rave about them :(

Very sorry this is being discontinued

Location: Madrid, España

Even though I absolutely love Hello Flawless Powder, Get Even is also very much to my liking. Now, I find out it is going to be discontinued and I'm quite sorry. I don't know if there's going to be a replacemente for this. If such is the case, I hope it will be so good that hardly anyone misses this one. Meanwhile, I suppose I'll stock up on this. There's still a lot of this in Spain, so I'll be in luck.

Good product but pricey.

Location: Undisclosed

I always like to find cheaper items (drugstore) then the one I want before I buy the more expensive ones so I dont waste money. Well, I heard a lott of talk about the 'maybellines dream matte powder' and how great it was. I heard it was great for oily skin and I have minimal oily skin in my t-zone area. So I tried it out and its AMAZING!! It definitley hides the shine! So I reccomend maybelline before you splurge on this!

My BFF Get Even 02

Location: Las Vegas, NV

This powder is the best product I own! I use it every morning to set my foundation and it lasts all day. I have oily skin, and this is the only powder that mattes the shine without turning me into an oompa looma cake face. I use it again in the late afternoon to blot away my shine and it always leaves my face looking fresh and flawless like I just did my makeup. I can't go a day without this powder! Take my iPhone but not the powder!!

Oct 9, 2012


Location: Nevada, USA

This is by far the absolute best powder on the market. When i first heard Sephora wasn't carrying the product anymore I almost had a meltdown right there in the store. I began using Get Even when i used to work for Benefit Cosmetics back in college. Thats when the love affair began and i haven't used anything else since. I have oily skin that tends to flush easy and this is the only powder that evens out my skin tone without that heavy cakey make-up look and feel. This is my number 1 go to face product! I've shared it with so many friends and family members and we are all hooked; Don't let us down Benefit- PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE THIS PRODUCT!!!

And I was super sad tht they told me this line was going away.. if you can't keep it what should we use.. or replace it with..? Please keep the get even!!!

Oct 7, 2012

so so good!

Location: Bristol, UK

I have really sensitive skin that creates red blotches and rashes whenever it pleases. I have been through a number of different brands and types of concealer and foundation, sometimes making the situation even worse for myself or having to use so much make-up it makes me feel like I am wearing a mask. I used a bit of my friends Benefit Get Even one night when we were at a gig and I was surprised that it instantly covered my red patches and didn't create any rash, itching or further problems. AMAZING! So I decided to give it a go myself. I went to an outlet counter and was happily greeted by an assistant who offered me some other products. I explained that I had extremely sensitive skin and that I was just going to buy the one product to see how it went. She was really helpful, gave me two samples of other products, was friendly and not pushy at all. This was a real breath of fresh air considering other experiences that I had had at department store makeup counters. Thank you for having such a lovely member of staff (blonde long haired girl in the Debenhams store in Bristol Cabot Circus.) and thank you for making an absolutely faultless product!

The BEST powder on the market!!!

Location: Toledo, OH, USA

i was devasted when sephora said they no longer carry it! i know that the majority of women out there dont have great complexions and therefore need heavy liquid foundations but HELLO thats not my fault! Like many women that use this prduct i have dry skin and cannot wear foundation it makes me cakey. This product however is the best powder great lasting coverage that leaves a beautiful velvety feeling without flaking on your face! I have been using it for years and it always lasts me 6 to 7 months...PLEASE dont dicontinue it!!!

Sep 24, 2012


Location: Birmingham, AL, USA

This is the absolute BEST powder. It gets rid of redness, discolorations and shine without being heavy or cakey. The hint of yellow in the color also prevents the dreaded orange-faced look. I've been a faithful user of this product for 5 years and just discovered that Sephora is no longer stocking it. It was suggested that I try the Hello Flawless powder as a replacement, but it is NOT the same. None of the Hello Flawless powder shades matched my skin tone as well as Get Even, it leaves a visible cakey film on my face, and it does not get rid of shine. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T DISCONTINUE THIS PRODUCT!!!

Sep 20, 2012


Location: San Antonio, TX, USA

This has been my go to powder for years!! I love it & will be devastated if it is discontinued. I went to sephora & they are no longer carrying it. :(

This is simply the BEST powder out there.

Location: New York, NY, USA

I have been using this power since since I was 18 and I am now 31~it is truly the best. It gives your face a nice even tone without the gross make-up look or feel. Your skin will feel clean, fresh and flawless without making you look like you cake on makeup. It's the truth.

Can't live without it!

Location: Toronto, ON, Canada

This is my go-to product - great coverage for a flawless complexion and it doesn't ever feel heavy. Number 3 is the perfect shade for me and I use it every day. I've found out it's being discontinued and don't know why...Please keep this product going!!!

Can't do without!!!

Location: Mt Pleasant, SC, USA

This is my one and only "must have" beauty product from any line! Earlier today I went to Ulta to buy another and almost cried when the salesperson told me that Benefit was discontinuing the product and would they not be getting any more...NO!!!!! I was so relieved to still find it on the website. PLEASE, Benefit, PLEASE keep this product!!!!

Aug 15, 2012

Absolutely love this product!

Location: San Diego, CA, USA

I have loved this product for years. The get even powder is so light and it is my #1 go to face product. I have always hated foundation but this is by far my favorite because it doesn't feel caked on. I seriously would go crazy if benefit ever discontinued it.

Aug 5, 2012

really good

Location: Northern Ireland, UK

this is a lovely powder its not to heavy and doesn't clump around the fine lines it is a very good quality powder and i would defiantly recommend, i would give it 5 stars if only the lady at my local benefit counter didn't suggest the totally wrong shade she told me 02 would be a perfect match but its a to dark because im between light and medium so 01 i think would have been better! but other than that its amazing!

Jun 11, 2012

Awesome Product!

Location: UK

I just got this product last week, I have been looking for a powder compact to even skin tone for ages and am so glad to have come across Get Even. I wear it over foundation as that's how the Benefit consultant demonstrated it and it makes my complexion so clear and eliminates any oiliness, for me it does need to be re-applied one or two times throughout the day but it's really easy to do so. The only thing I'm slightly concerned about is how 'crumbly' the product is, when I open the compact the powder had already became loose and flies about and I get paranoid that one day I will open it to find it's all crumbled up completely. But I guess time will tell. But I love it!

Apr 11, 2012

My skin tends to be oily and I can get flushed throughout...

Location: San Diego, CA

My skin tends to be oily and I can get flushed throughout the day. I have always been one to stay away from foundation and powders but I caved and tried this. I love it! It doesnt feel like you're wearing a heavy layer of makeup on your face - I feel confident that I am not all red but also I dont look fake and made up!

Go-To Setting Powder

Location: California

I am usually a fan of mineral foundation powder rather than just blotting powder, but Get Even is the bomb! It is not a foundation, though, so don't buy it for heavy coverage. I wear it over liquid foundation or as a mid-day pick-me-up. It feels like it mattifies and evens out my skin, leaving it smooth and silky. There's not much more to say but I really love this product!!

Feb 12, 2012

My skin gets really red so I bought this. When I tried it out at the store I really liked it but I noticed it made my skin really dry and flakey. But I got it anyway because as long as you put on moisturizer it looks perfect. But when I got home and used my regular moisturizer it made the foundation come of, but my good moisturizer from the dermatologist did not make it rub off. I got the ligtest shade and it is a perfect match. I would recommend this just make sure you have a good moisturizer!

Pretty much one of the best pressed powders i've ever tried, very smooth and silky finish and it makes my pores less visible :) loves it!

Great stuff. Worked for me.

Location: Desborough, Northants

I am 69 years old, fair skinned (was a natural blonde) and had eyelid surgery 10 months ago. Any injuries like an operation leaves my skin reddened and my nose and chin are highly coloured too for a blonde, plus I have dark circles under my eyes due to very thin skin. But this powder did exactly what I wanted. It's even better than a famous French concealer pen at £18 so for a few pounds more I got the effect I wanted. Thank you Benefit.

Not So Good

Location: Belfast, UK

This is by far the most disappointing product that I have bought from Benefit. I found that it did not keep shine at bay for long and didn't cover discolouration. It also gets used up so quickly that I simply could not afford to keep rebuying it. I am very diappointed as I always love Benefit products and they have never let me down before this.

Location: California

I only gave it four stars because I don't yet own it and I didn't want to give it full starrage when I've only used it once. However: I got a Benefit makeover at Macy's and the lady that worked with me used this in medium over my shade of playstick (paper dolls). It really was wonderful. My skin (which is a little bit blotchy red in the cheeks at times) evened right out and it felt super smooth. It isn't a powder foundation, so it is pretty light-to-moderate coverage, but other than that it's a wonderful mattifyer. Thank you Benefit for making a matte powder in- what a concept- different shades! it's perfect and I can't wait to buy it :)

Best pressed powder ever

I've tried a few pressed powders, and this is the first that lasts all day. Plus, it looks very natural. Love it!

Location: Bringelly NSW 2556, Australia

Bought this for the 1st time the other day in Med from online with out using it before or a tester. I was very surprised with what I got. It is perfect for sealing foundation. Light and great coverage. If I need more colour and cover I use Im flawless, however if I want some thing lighter this is what I go for. Really was amazed at how much I love this, I didnt think it would be that great. New staple to my collection I thinks :D

Great coverage, gets rid of redness

Location: Bluffton, SC

I love this product! I have an odd skin tone and freckles, but it matches perfectly even in the winter when I'm at my palest. It gets rid of all redness and evens everything out. I refuse to use anything else and haven't for the past six months. It's perfect!

Great product

Location: Warsaw, Poland

I use it for 4 months and it's amazing! I've tried so many other powders and it's the best for my acne-prone skin. It covers everything what should be covered, mattes for a long time, do not clump... My face looks naturally, the color perfectly adapts to my skin. I love all the Benefit products, but it's one of the best. I would definitely buy it again and recommend to everyone :)

Location: Undisclosed

I've read a lot of negative reviews about this product, which made me hesitant to buy it at first, but after using it everyday for a week I am so glad I did! I usually have minimal blemishes and really, really bad discoloration that I have always been so embarrassed about. Don't believe what everyone says about it getting cakey. I use a powder brush (have never touched the pad it came with. it doesn't seem like I would get even coverage that way) and very lightly dab some powder on all over my face. I think the problem most people have with this product is that they are using way too much. A little goes a long way! I use it over the Some Kind of Gorgeous foundation and it evens out my skin tone perfectly. At the end of the day my face looks like it was perfectly airbrushed to a matte finish. I am also very prone to oily skin too, and even while I know my face gets a bit sweaty from work, I take a minute to look at myself in the mirror and notice that I have absolutely no shine! This product does what it says it does and delivers. I'm so happy walking out of the door every day knowing that my skin looks amazing. Thanks Benefit!

Crumbly and heavy

Location: Undisclosed

I'm not really used to powder foundation, and so this was my first one. The colour is okay, but it crumbles when you try and apply some. It also felt really heavy on my face. Instead of getting compliments, I got people telling me that my powder had gone funny. I won't be wearing this again. I wish I could find a foundation/concealer that stayed the way I had first applied it for at least 2 hours.

Not what it said it was

Location: UK

I was so dissapointed with this product! I usually love Benefit and have been using Porefessional and That Gal religously since my sister bought me them for Christmas. However, this product was a total let down. It does not give even coverage and clumps in some places. It has a heavy feel to it that made me feel as though myface was caked in makeup. I'm really upset about this as I am a student and don't usually splash out on makeup. I thought I would treat myself but now regret it. My usual pressed powder is a quarter of the price and 100 times more effective. I wish I'd have just bought that now instead! =(

Location: CA

This product is nice and transparent. Provides a nice finish to set my makeup. Not too powdery.

Very good product

Location: Bay Area

This has great coverage for redness and oilyness, but unless a good moisturizer is put on first (and even sometimes then) it will cause flakiness on my forehead and cheeks. Besides that, I love this product, and how it covers imperfections, is fairly lightweight, and lasts.

Great coverage without dryness

Location: Dallas, TX

Terrific product! I use "Hello Flawless" and needed something for minor touchups during the day. "Get Even" does the job! It blots the shiny parts without adding dryness. I finally got up the nerve to use it alone one weekend, and it really covers the redness and blotchy skin.

Stay Shine-Free!

Location: california

Get Even is most definitely the best compact powder I've ever used. Light and gentle on the skin, and rids you of any redness or shine you may have. I have very pale skin so I use Number One, and it works like a charm. This is the powder for me and I won't be going to any other brand other than Benefit!

When I first bought Get Even I was kind of hesitant, but after I used it the first time I fell in love!! The powder goes on smooth with a powder brush or the sponge! It gives light to medium coverage and is a matte color! It evened out my skin color and gave it all a natural look! I love this product and would recommend it to everyone!

Covers up shiney bits doens't make me look like an oompa loompa (what is it with orange-faced slap-tastic girls?) and covered up redness on a morning. Lasted me ages too!

Excellent coverage

Location: Bakersfield, CA

Being a redhead and very fair skin it's hard to get a make up that actually matches and gives great coverage. Along with the face that I have VERY rosy red cheeks, it amazed me how well this product worked. I have complete coverage and gets rid of all the redness! I used Get Even 1 and it makes my skin look as if I were born with a perfect complexion.

Cannot live without this powder!

Location: Orlando, FL

I've been using this powder for years and it's an absolute must. It's a powder but does a foundation's job - it's lighweight but covers all of my flaws and evens out my skin tone. I'm addicted to this powder - it's a staple in my makeup bag.

Nov 16, 2010

The best!

Location: New York, NY

I've been trying to find the perfect matte powder/foundation for awhile now, and have tried at least half a dozen brands - this is the best! It takes away all the shine and redness on my skin, and it is even perfect in the summer when I'm sweating!

Location: Houston, TX USA

This is a good alternative to keeping with me in my bag for shine control. With re-applying my hello flawless to get rid of shine I was using too much and it would cover up my blush. I like having this in my bag because I can get rid of shine without looking like i have too much makeup on or toning down my blush. Doesn't keep me matte all day but it's certainly helped. Maybe if I didn't live in a hot and humid climate it would last all day but it's hard to find something that beats SE tx weather...

Location: Ft. Lauderdale, FL

AMAZING! I have struggled through the years to find a powder/foundation that is light enough for my fair skin....THIS IS IT! it blends in invisibly, covers up redness and NEVER shines! And I live in South Florida, and have learned to accept that eventually I will be a little shiny....NOT with this stuff!! THIS IS A MUST-HAVE!! I also have dry, sensitive skin, and this is one of the only products of this type (believe me, I've tried everything) that does not dry out my skin!

I use this as a blotting powder with the Fantail brush. I don't like a thick application so I stay away from the sponge applicator. This def evens out the skin tone and is great for any time of the year. I also like how it is matte without being chalky. Love this one Benefit!!

Location: Canada

I had high hopes for this product. I'm prone to redness and thought, "HEY this sounds great!". Unfortunately the product seems too heavy (weight not pigmentation) for my combination skin, and it seemed to give me acne, which is unusual for my skin. I didn't even love the boring black packaging. I usually swoon over Benefit products, but this did ABSOLUTELY nothing for me, and it was retired to my "keep but don't use" pile shortly after purchase. Would I buy it again? Absolutely not.
