Not great for dry skin

MNBenebabe
Location: Minnesota

I really love the feel of this product. It goes on smoothly and the cream to powder formula transitions nicely. It also matches my fair skin well. The only problem is that it emphasizes dry patches on my face. It's also hard to get the last bits out of the crevices of the packaging.

Melts away even with powder,

kaylashaye
Location: Alberta

I thought this was possibly the worst foundation alternative I've tried to date. I always keep my reviews positive, who has the time to review a product you hate? But I think this one is so awful that I had to say something. I have yet to speak to anyone who would repurchase. The product is oily, and even with a good primer and powder it melts away. So much product is required to blend and make it look natural that after about a month it's gone. Not hit pan, but gone. I love tinted moisturizers, but be careful when buying this. It's not a good product to start and then add to that the price and how long it last. Dud.

Perfect Product

Daniella646
Location: Ontario, Canada

Love that it's: “long wearing”

If you are looking for the perfect foundation that looks like you are not wearing foundation.... this is is! I got this product in a sample size from a kit i bought, it is my favourite! I have very dry, oily skin and did not have much hope for this foundation as I was worried that it would make me look oily. But, I can wear it all day and when I used a makeup wipe at the end of the day, I was pleased to see my foundation come off on it because it meant it had not moved. This is by far one of my favourite Benefit products!

absolutely beautiful, but too little product.

mamasuz
Location: seattle, wa
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

I love this product and use it over Pore-fessional. I apply it with a flat foundation brush and it always looks perfect. I apply a very light dusting of Hello Flawless and it is the best combination I have ever tried. I teach high school and my kids even tell me how great I look, which is something special coming from teenagers! My only problem with this product is how little you get for the money spent! The package really should be bigger. Comparable products come with two times as much product for the same money.

The best ever foundation

MariJo
Location: Marysville, MI, USA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Olive

This foundation is the best I have ever used. I use it everyday in place of regular makeup unless I need to go fancier.it covered any blemishes I might have but was light enough that you could not tell I even had makeup on. It is light, goes on easily, stays on all day, etc. I just love it. We live in a small town and do not have a lot of places to shop and our closest decent shopping areas are an hour away. Which is much too far to drive to on a regular basis. That's why I am so upset it is no longer being sold in our Ulta store. I have no idea where I am suppose to get it from now and I hate mail orders because you never know how long it is going to take to get it and it is such a hassle.

I used and loved the above foundation. The round one, the old one. It looks great and did a great job. I hate the new one that you replaced it with., and now have to find a new makeup. why couldn't it be my choice which I wanted. thanks a lot. chtis wenersten

My perfect makeup :)

Morganpie
Location: Everett, WA
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Olive

Being an olive toned, combo skinned, dark haired girl I have the hardest time finding foundation that matches my skin tone. Everything is either too pink or too orange. Not only that but I get extremely dark during the summer. Benefit Some Kind-A Gorgeous to the rescue! I wear Medium during the winter, Med/Deep mixed for spring & fall and Deep during the summer. It's extremely breathable, adjusts slightly to my skin tone, doesn't melt off my face or dry it out and it doesn't run when I swim (or even waterski!) which just makes it even better! I look natural, moisturized and can build coverage or add powder as well without it looking overdone. Please don't ever discontinue-I will cry!

Nice foundation for a clear skin

Flamencodebbie
Location: Norwich, Norwich, Norfolk, UK
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

I like that it doesn't completely cover the skin, especially when your skin is fairly clear. Nice soft finish. I use it when performing flamenco dance and it doesn't run or look fake.

great powder look

Beth374832493
Location: England, UK
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “matte”

this is great if you don't like wearing a lot of make up. However it doesn't have brilliant coverage, I suffer from a few spots here and there and it's not great at covering them or just general imperfections. It does give a great finished look though, and has a powder effect on your face so it doesn't look greasy. I am happy with the product but considering how much I have to apply it is running out pretty quickly..so I wouldn't purchase again for that reason. not benefit's greatest product for me.

Absolutely Fabulous!

Starting using this a few months ago, cannot believe how nice the product is, doesnt feel heavy on your skin, your skin can still breath! Great cover lasts all day, would recommend to others.

Light, but creamy with tons of moisture & coverage

Lili50
Location: New Brunswick, Canada
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “so reliable”

I just have to review this product! This was my second Benefit purchase and I just love it. I keep it in my office desk as an effective spur-of-the-moment meeting emergency! I just turned 50 (no wrinkles yet), but have had acne-prone skin ALL my life or almost. This product is light but creamy with tons of moisture. It gives me a healthy cover-up - I have very fair skin and it seems to cover all of my imperfections (including any former acne blueish stains). I've read some other comments about it being dry and cakey - something must have happened there - simply not the case. A must try!

Foundation Faker- superb

Nicky
Location: London UK
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “easy”

I was first bought this product by a sister-in-law for Christmas, previously having used tinted moisturiser. I had seen it on her and was absolutely amazed. Since then I have used nothing else, and it is so easy to apply with the sponge. Having never used foundation proper, this is a much better option even than tinted moisturiser. It lasts a long time and creates a great cover each day.


Jul 19, 2014

Use with Beauty blender or similar

Katiecalliopegrace
Location: New Zealand
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair

This was my first ever benefit product many years ago. I use this on a good skin day when I don't want to bother with a full face of makeup. I prime my skin with porefessional and then use a beauty blender or real techniques sponge to blend this onto my skin. then use a few dabs on concealer, dust of powder and thats it. You don't get a huge amount of product which is whyI save this for good skin days. I do like it, but I prefer HFOW.


Feb 24, 2014

Obviously a fake

EMi5
Location: Ontario, Canada
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

Provides no coverage, is difficult to apply (brushes and even the sponge it comes with doesn't work very well) and looks absolutely horrible on dry skin!! It crumbles and flakes. Perhaps this would work better on oily skin but I have a feeling it would only make it more oily so I'm not exactly sure who this product is intended for. I also think it might have been a cause for the huge breakout I'm experiencing. This product is just very upsetting.


Feb 15, 2014

Didn't do anything

egre00
Location: Undisclosed
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Olive

I have oily skin on my nose and forehead and when i applied this, It made my oil on my nose stand out and look terrible! There is barely any coverage in this product. I feel like they don't even give enough product on this container. I think that this product is very cakey. I've tried numerous primers and powders to make this product look better on my face, but nothing made it better.


Feb 15, 2014

Great foundation!

Megan95
Location: High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, UK
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Medium

Very good foundation, blended well with my skin tone (medium) evenly covered my face leaving no blotchy areas. I live that it has a built in mirror and a sponge for application making it quick and very easy to apply! I also love the texture it's so soft and creamy. The only downer I found was that I found it ran out quite quickly and I only use what need when I need it, apart from that a very good product with amazing packaging to I might add.


Feb 11, 2014

Not for dry skin

Troublenight
Location: Lima, Peru
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light

I've tried this foundation faker twice and simply does not work for me. I have dry skin and when I put it on my face it "cracks" and is very very difficult to blend with the sponge and with my brush.


Feb 1, 2014

quick & easy to use. blends nicely to my coloring

MSim33
Location: Albury NSW, Australia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “must have”

Have been using some kind-a-gorgeous for years. Blends easily to my skin colour and to hide acne blemishes. Easy to use - looks effortless and natural. Lasts the whole day. I can't step out of the house without putting some on my face. Makes my morning routine quick and easy.


Jan 30, 2014

Very smooth, light coverage

Jackie161
Location: Plano, TX, USA
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “portable”

I think that the sponge it comes with is really the only way to actually get enough product on to your face but it's not good for blending (i prefer to use my real techniques stippling brush)! The product is very very light coverage and i like the cream to powder. Great to travel with and put in your purse because its very compact and already has a sponge. I like this product overall and would recommend it to a friend that's looking for a light coverage foundation, or something to have in their purse for touch-ups throughout the day!


Jan 23, 2014

I love this product!

Vally
Location: Undisclosed

Firstly the packaging is so adorable and plus it's three in one as it comes with its own mirror and sponge which is great for on the go! This foundation is so amazing!! It gives a nice dewey look and feel to my skin, I would say this foundation is medium coverage however the product is buildable. The foundation blends on the skin so smoothly, covers up some of those imperfections however still looks pretty natural, doesn't look like you are wearing foundation and it is super lightweight! I personally would recomend this product to oily and dry skin as for oily skin, this product is oily free and as for dry skin because it leaves an amazing feel to the skin!

Does not do anything for me

ameelou
Location: Sydney NSW, Australia
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair

I really wished i had tried this before i brought the full size! I thought it would be great for those days where i dont want to put on a full face of makeup but still wish to look flawless. Nope, it just is horrible on me. I have tried a total of 3 times to wear this and all 3 times was a disaster.. The first time i applied with a foundation brush and it was so streaky and would not blend into my skin at all so i had to take it off. The second time was the same. The third time i was popping down to the shops and just wanted a bit of coverage and thought i would give it one last shot but decided to use the sponge it came with. It looked awful! It just sat in my pores and was still patchy and streaky. I used the sponge to see if i could blend it in a little more but just ended up looking like i had nothing on my face and when i looked closely foundation in my pores and eyebrows. I really wished it worked for me but it really does not. Another thing i found disappointing was the lack of product, as i said i used it 3 times and i have hit the pan! But i think the sponge played a big part in that so if you do happen to like it dont use the sponge. I still adore benefit but not this.

Perfect for a little coverage!

BeneFriend
Location: Seattle, WA, USA
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “light, brightening, Smooth, blends well”

I love this product for helping even my complexion on days where I'm a little more red or dull. I have pretty clear skin, so I lightly pat it on to just help even things out. It's so light and applies quite nicely. Applying powder blushes or tints is easier, too! If you don't need a heavy duty foundation, go with this one. It brightens your whole look!


Jan 2, 2014

perfect coverage

HelenKA
Location: Sydney NSW, Australia

Love that it's: “easy”

I love the amount of coverage, not too thick, the only thing I dislike is the smell of it but love the product enough to ignore it. I love the compact too and how the sponge sits underneath the foundation.

A good product

makeupforever
Location: England, UK
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “gives a healthy glow, fab packaging”

I purchased this when visiting New York and i enjoyed using it as it gave me a "healthy glow" i do think you have to layer the product in order to achieve full coverage and this can look quite greasy, however it is very quick and easy to use if you are in a hurry as you can just swipe it on with the sponge to give your face some colour. I do like this product and i would buy it again!


Oct 28, 2013

Love this foundation but the return policy is not

KZDYCE
Location: San Jose,
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Medium

I ordered 2 of these online and either selected the wrong shade or was sent the wrong shade. I was so excited when my order showed up right as I used the last of my product. Of course, the shade was wrong and that was a bummer. Luckily, we have a Benefit store in Los Gatos. Not super close to home but not too bad. I raced to get there before a dinner date (the store closes at 6:00) and to my disbelief I was told that the store would not exchange my 2 unopened containers of foundation because they are completely separate from the online store. Ridiculous!! So, I bought my 2 containers of foundation, went home, filled out the return slip, had to go to the post office (really excited about that) and will be making an appointment at the Bobbi Brown counter at Nordstrom. Great products, bad experience! :(

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

AnnaAmalie
Location: Undisclosed

Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “looks like skin, natural, weightless, great finish, cute compact, perfect for on the go”

I adore this foundation sooooo much! It was actually the first foundation I ever tried - liker ever. Since then i've tried quite a few. Both drugstore and high end. Liquid, powders and creams. And here, one year later, I still absolutely adore it! It is the perfect foundation if you are looking for something natural, as It doesn't feel like you are wearing anything. If you touch your face i doesn't rob of and it doens't feel greasy. Since I have dry skin, I don't need to set it with powder. It has kind of a powder finish, meaning it doesn't look dewy or shiny - but it doesn't look caky (it looks like skin)! When you are wearing it, it seriously looks like you aren't wearing anything at all! - But I'm not going to lie... I have acne, and a lot of redness. This takes out all of my redness, but it does NOT cover my acne. But Seriously, I personally thinks it's way better to use something like this all over your skin, to even it out, and then just use a little bit of concealer where you need it. - Also, I must warn you: DO NOT USE THE SPONGE YOU GET WITH IT!!! This product works VERY well with your fingers OR a brush. But with the sponge... I swear you'll go trough it twice as fast! It just absorbs all of the product. Overall I LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation, and probably always will.

Amazing with one problem...

makeupcal
Location: Undisclosed
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “light coverage, runs out fast, beautiful finish”

I love this foundation so much. It is literally the best foundation if you want a light coverage, but also cover-up uneven skin tones, or small blemishes. BUT mine runs out so fast. I use foundation almost every day and it makes me sad. I use the sponge that comes with it but it still hits pan, in a few weeks. Other foundations last me so much longer. It is a fairly expensive foundation, and I hate to keep buying it in such short intervals.

I didn't like it as a foundation it was to cakey. so instead of wasting it i use it as a concelar and it my favorite concelar.

This is the best foundation I have used.

babs54
Location: Wisconsin
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light

Because of life circumstances, I could not afford this product for a few years and had to resort to less expensive alternatives. Although other cosmetic companies claim to have a similar product, there is no comparison to Benefit's some kind-a gorgeous'. I'm 59 years old and have never found a foundation product as wonderful as 'some kind-a gorgeous.'

LOVE!

Kaaatiee

I don't have much to cover up as far as blemishes go but need help more with an even complexion and this does the job PERFECTLY. It is super light and easily blended. I would recommend this to anyone in need of lighter coverage!

Ok, I do love this product. I am on my 3rd one. The last one I dropped and shards of glass were in my compact, luckily I had very little left. My brand new one knocked off the shelf and the mirror inside shattered into my foundation. 5 hearts for product, 1 heart for unsafe, make-up destroying compact :(

Favorite "foundation

BenefitLover4Ever
Location: Chicago, IL
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

I have a medium-deep skin tone and had been using Revlon's photoready BB cream in medium, which was the darkest shade they carried. While that blended well with my skin, it made me looked "washed out" since it was a tad lighter than my skin tone. I swatched Benefit's medium and deep shade and decided to go with the deep shade and I do not regret buying this product. The deep shade blended well with my skin (I used a duo fiber brush) and gave me a nice/tan glow--really natural glow. Though it looked intimidating in the pan, it was very forgiving if you blend it out. The only thing that bothered me about this product was the SMELL. I didn't notice it when I was swatching it at the store, but when I was applying it on my face it had a very weird smell... Nothing too pungent, but let's just say it's a smell you wouldn't want to smell everyday.


Mar 5, 2013

Did I get a bad batch?

StephanieinOhio
Location: Ohio, USA
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light

I have to say I like the product but will never ever wear it again! I don't know if I got a bad batch but my product smells so horrible! I applied this with a clean brush and thought maybe it was the brush cleaner that I had used. I went back and smelled my other clean brushes but that wasn't it. I wanted so much to believe that Benefit wouldn't make a product that smelled that horribly so at first I didn't bother to smell the product but once I did I realized it was the product that smelled. I had to take it off immediately. I haven't had this product that long but I do know that makeup expires. This was the first time I have actually used it because I typically use oxygen wow. I had the small sample one and I had to immediately remove it as it was making me sick!! Has anyone else had this experience??


Feb 17, 2013

DO NOT BUY THIS!

Micha
Location: Brighton, The City of Brighton and...
Eyes: Green

Please do not waste your money on this product. The coverage is less than you rebel. It only stays on for about 2 hours (I don't have oily skin), Hands down the worst foundation I have ever used.


Feb 7, 2013

Great product!

Pinky22
Location: Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “Smooth, lasting, buildable”

I went for the first time to Sephora (my city doesn't have a Sephora so I had to travel to go to one) and I was looking for something that helped my makeup to stay longer becuase at the end of the school day, my makeup looked flaky and patchy. I never thought on buying a foundation because most of the GOOD foundations are liquid and since I have a ton of acne, it's recommended to wear a powder foundation. The lady at the Benefit counter showed me this foundation and told me that it wasn't going to damage my skin because of its cream to powder formula, but it would also make my makeup to last longer and look smoother. I'm in love with it, it doesn't give me enough coverage because it is very sheer, but it leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth, kind of the feeling that the porefessional gives. I just hit pan on this foundation and I haven't used it since I saw the pan on it, because I'm afraid to run out of it and don't have a Sephora in my city to repurchase it. Seriously, if you want a good foundation, you should try this, specially if you have acne like me, you can use some concealer to cover the rest of the imperfections that the foundation didn't cover up. Love it!

amazing product, not enough though!

Ali96
Location: Ballston Spa, NY
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “natural looking, light coverage, nice shade, good for sensitive skin”

I've started using higher-end makeup this year and when i went to Sephora the woman recommended this foundation for me. At first i was hesitant to shell out the thirty something dollars for foundation but it was well worth it! I thought since there are only three shades and i'm extremely pale that i'd end up looking orange but it was the perfect shade! This is a lighter foundation which i also loved, because it looked like i wasn't wearing any makeup but my skin looked flawless. I also break out from many foundations but this foundation actually felt like it improved my skin! The only complaint I have is that it runs out quickly if you use it on a daily basis like I do.

AMAZING!!!!

My HOLY GRAIL product!!

salech6
Location: Miami, FL, USA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

I absolutely love benefit! All my makeup collection is from this brand. When I tried Some Kind-a Gorgeous I was blown away! This foundation is very light but it evens out my complexion and looks so natural! I have post acne marks on my face so I do apply erase paste after Some Kind-a Gorgeous on the areas that need a little more coverage. I then set with Benefit's Get Even powder. Only downside is that if you use this product on a daily basis it will go pretty fast. I already purchased a back-up of this product! I will never leave my house without at least Some Kind-a Gorgeous on my face!! Thanks Benefit for such a wonderful product!!

I have to go to my dermatologist

macmustache
Location: Undisclosed

I recently purchased this product with high hopes it would be fantastic. I thought the concept was cool and the product worked great. So I played around with it last night and washed it off before I went to bed. This morning I woke up and my face had broke. Out into a rash! And I must be allergic to it because why else would it do that? My rash isn't itchy or hurting, it's just there. I'm disappointed. But I still love benefit.

Love that it's: “natural, silky, creamy”

I received this product as part of the Cabana Glama kit (which is possibly my favorite Benefit kit yet) and when I first opened it, I thought, "Oh gosh, this will be WAY too dark for me!" because the kit included the medium tone. However, I was pleasantly surprised and I REALLY like this stuff! It's labeled as the "foundation faker" because it doesn't go down with the level of heaviness and coverage that any full coverage foundation would have and that is what makes it perfect if you're going for a totally natural and effortless look. My first impression was that, unfortunately, the product does not have a nice smell at all. It smells not at all unlike costume makeup and I do wish Benefit would change that and give this product a more appealing scent - I think coconut would be fantastic for this! The smell isn't terribly overpowering though and I could compare its intensity to that of sunscreen, so if you can handle the smell of sunscreen, you can probably handle this. The texture is incredible, it just melts onto your fingers when you touch it! It reminds me a lot of the filling in a chocolate cream truffle and it goes onto your skin with an incredibly smooth feel that is a joy to apply. I personally recommend using a high quality foundation brush for it rather than a sponge so that you have more control over the amount you put down, plus a brush is easier to clean, more sanitary, and is so much easier to blend with. This product does go down a little shiny, so if you're desiring a matte look, you will definitely need some powder. Even though this is marketed as "cream to powder", don't be surprised if you get some shine. A little shine doesn't bother me though, it makes it look more natural. Even though this is a cream to powder product, it isn't too bad about exaggerating my dry patches (I have pretty darn dry skin) and I was pleased at the overall look. I think this is a wonderful product and it's become a staple in my makeup repertoire.

Just the right amount of coverage

GissieB
Location: Melbourne VIC, Australia
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Fair

This product gives light coverage and works well over sunscreen or a primer if you feel you need one. I don't like heavy foundations and it's hard to find a good non-oily compact foundation, so I was so happy when I ordered this on line without trying it and loved it. The design with the sponge in a separate compartment is clever. The only reason I have not given it 5/5 is that as with many Benefit products, there just isn't enough of it. It's at a great price but it's annoying to have to order it so often so now I buy 2 at a time.

Jenni

Other than the smell that other reviewers mention before, this product is pretty much perfect for me. I find that it has good coverage (hides my pores!), and I love that it dries to a powder without being cakey. I have fairly even, blemish-free skin, but this does cover up any redness in my cheeks. I find it easier to apply this with clean fingers, just to let the product melt a little bit.

Absolutely amazing!

This was the first piece if Benefit make up I have ever bought. Really easy to apply, great coverage. I am quite fair skinned but chose the medium shade for a warmer tone. I use it with 'That Gal' brightener/primer and also the 'Erase Paste' in medium. Great combination of prouducts and they last all day!

I love this product! I have been looking for a creamy foundation that goes on smoothly and lasts all day, and this is it! It smooths evenly over my face, looks beautiful and lasts all day! Don't ever take this out of your line - it's better than Chanel, Lancome, and all the other high-priced foundations I've tried. Thank you, Benefit!

Not bad, but it could be better

Katiuska
Location: Madrid, España
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “good for pretending you're not made up at all”

The first shade of this foundation that I tried and bought just a little later was Lite, since I have a very fair complexion. I liked it, and still like it, but I recommend applying it with a brush instead of the sponge, even though it pales beside HFOW. The original shade, I like, especially when I mix it with some That Gal. Sometimes I use this with Get Even, but other times, with Hello Flawless powder. However, I think I'd like this better if it was more powdery. And it could look better on girls with flawless complexions, which, sometimes, may not be the case.


Oct 5, 2012

Do not buy!

Ady14
Location: Brisbane QLD, Australia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

Benefit, why won't you discontinue this and create a product that's worth every dollar and not this stinky, useless, sheer, garbage of a foundation. It shouldn't be called a foundation to begin with as it doesn't offer decent coverage. To be honest, a tinted moisturizer would do its job better than this. It's greasy both for dry and oily skin and accentuates dry patches and huge pores. I believe you guys create products for certain 'problems' but I can't fathom what this "foundation" is for. But I guess you have created this for those who already have perfect skin, but the thing is, they don't need this anymore and certainly not those who have skin problems. Please discontinue and stop disappointing!

this stuff is great! it is so lightweight and looks so natural, it blends in perfectly with my skin tone! I was really surprised when I tried it out of my Cabana Glama Kit. Sadly, this product smells horrible--PLEASE, benefit, change it into something nice like the smell of Hervana, for example. I would definitely re-buy it.

great product - must have quick fix!

aqualily
Location: Cheshire, UK
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “essential, perfecting”

I am crazily pale and both light and medium are fine for me depending on the amount applied - I think, because of how light it is. This definitely isn't the foundation to use if you want coverage, and probably not if you want a matte finish (doesn't make you shiny though, don't take that the wrong way!). A tiny brush of this on the cheekbones really boosts my complexion and detracts attention from acne scars and other imperfections - it's really good for me if i'm in a hurry. I recommend to all the pale girlies out there! Even department store make up brands don't have shades light enough for my skin - this is fine!

Gorgeous foundation with limitations

KatieKay
Location: Canada
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “silky smooth, lovely texture”

I recently recieved a 'deluxe sample' in the 'All Decked Out' beauty kit and was excited to try it! The texture is simply gorgeous - very silky and smooth. Unfortunately, this product only comes in 3 shades and my tone is between lite and medium. To use one shade alone, I have to really blend the foundation in, which gives poor coverage. My foundation also had an unpleasant chemical, plastic smell - ick. I love the texture, but I would not buy this product again because of the smell and limited shades.


Aug 24, 2012

dry and smells bad

Caicai
Location: Sydney, Australia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

It is kinda dry so not good for dry-skin people. Because of its dry texture, it is difficult to apply evenly on the face, especially the the sponge with the foundation. I used my one foundation brush. The smell is really terrible, which is not the style of Benefit Cosmetics. It smells like some oil so I smell like sweat and sun-burnt even though I put on the make-up fresh!


Aug 7, 2012

I really love this foundation!

JaimeNatasha
Location: Undisclosed
Love that it's: “super easy to apply, the perfect colour”

I really love this foundation! It's light and easy to apply which is great as I don't have loads of time to do my makeup every morning. The colour matches my light skin tone perfectly and now I don't worry about looking like an orange every time I leave the house. Unfortunately it does emphasise dry skin on the face so you need to make sure that your skin is moisturised before application, otherwise you end up wasting the product. However, I am incredibly happy with this foundation and I will definitely look to buy it again as soon as I run out.


Aug 2, 2012

Not amazing, but gets the job done.

Stinekey
Location: USA

Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “fast, Full Coverage, runs out fast”

Although I'm only giving it a 3 star rating, this is my favorite foundation that I've found so far. It's very light, and provides full coverage. Really, it's the only product that you'll need, so it's especially good if you're in a hurry. However, I found that I needed to use much more of the product on a regular basis than other Benefit products, so one tin doesn't last you very long if you're using it every day. It's creamy texture makes it especially easy to use a lot of product at once, and really that's not necessary. It's cream to powder, so in the winter when my skin is dry it doesn't look as flattering as it does in the summer.

OffroadDiva

Creamy and the medium color suited my skin-tone; however, the faker fades quickly. Also, it smells like my grandmother's old theatrical pancake make-up, not very pleasant. Disappointing considering how nice Benefit's other products smell.

I love everything about this product. Although I didn't get on with it so well at first (I have dry skin and the product emphasized that flaw when applied), I changed my skincare routine and now it sits beautifully on my skin. It's not too heavy so I can achieve the natural look I like, in fact it feels like I'm not wearing anything. The only thing I'm a little disappointed with is that the 'pan' is already visible, I haven't had it long or used it excessively but it won't be long until I'll be needing more.

I really didn't want to love this.....

TwirlyGirly
Location: Warwick, RI
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light

...because of the cost. However, "Some Kind of Gorgeous" had me smitten the very first time we met. I received a mini of this in "medium" in the "Tan About Town" value set. As my skin is fairly light, I thought for sure the "medium" shade would be far too dark for me. I'm older, so it's time for me to switch to lighter formulations for my skin, so as not to emphasive those pesky fine lines that seem to be cropping up here and there on my face (who invited THEM to the party is what I'd like to know!) Because my forehead still becomes quite oily throughout the day, the BB creams I've tried as a foundation alternative haven't been satisfactory, leaving my skin looking too greasy. I recently began using "Dr. Feelgood" as a primer/mattifier on my forehead and nose, and love it. So, I tested applying "Some Kind of Gorgeous" over "Dr. Feelgood" with my synthetic flat-top buffer brush, and oh my! It applied so easily, and left my skin looking natural, smooth, and radiant. I discovered the product is buildable, as I was able to apply a second coat over my cheeks, where I have some visible broken capillaries. The "medium" shade was NOT too dark as I had thought it would be. It actually blended in perfectly with my skin tone. The product didn't cake or settle into fine lines, either. I took care of the dark circles under my eyes with a bit of "Erase Paste" in medium (from the "Finding Mr. Bright" value kit), and topped that off with just a tiny bit of "Girl Meets Pearl" (which I've discovered makes a fabulous eye brightener!). Added a swipe of blush and a dusting of "Hoola" bronzing powder, and Voila! My skin hadn't lokked THAT good in years. Needless to say, even though "Some Kind of Gorgeous" does cost more than I wanted to spend, in the long run it will save me money, because I won't be wasting $$ trying out products that may not work for me. In addition, I know I'll use up every last bit of it. "Some Kind of Gorgeous?" I think I'm in love!

Absolutely love this product, so worth the price! I was really worried about purchasing this because it was quite a sum of money considering it might not be worth it, as my skin is dry and I also suffer from eczema so I was anxious to see how this would react. I was pleased to find that it gave light coverage that didn't make my skin feel heavy, and had no reaction, as well as lasting all day. Will definitely be telling my friends!

Not my favourite product

Mydeliriumx

This product is very light and did not give me the coverage I expected. If you have dry skin it makes it look worse and does not last a full day. It does give you a nice complexion when it is initially applied and may suit other skin types, just not for me.

Desperate need of a medium deep shade!!

jenniff25
Location: Ramstein, Germany
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

This product is excellent! I love the feel and look of it on my skin, however, the medium shade is much too beige (pinkish undertones) and a bit pale on my medium golden skin. I'm mostly Hispanic with about a 1/4 Asian. I cannot wear foundations with beige or pink undertones because they tend to make me look dull, washed out and ill. Please guys...can you add a shade between the medium and the deep and with yellow/golden undertones rather than pink???

Love that it's: “easy to apply, a multitasker, great for touchups, perfectly paired with highlighters, lovable!”

I'm in love with Some Kind-a Gorgeous. It has super cute packaging in the way it looks like a record, but I got the mini verison and it runs out fast and it's hard to get my foundation brush in the product. Other than that, this is the star of my makeup bag. I have fair skin, but I went with medium thinking light was too light (probably better for asian skin). I was right, it's just half a shade darker, so it gives me a tad of a tan :D. I reccomend medium for pale girls, because it looks dark in the packaging but appears lighter on skin. It goes on smooth and you can use fingers OR brush! You can also mix w/ highlighter like Girl Meets Pearl. I like how it's a cross between powder and liquid, and doesn't give too much coverage for mid-day touch-ups. Love it!

the lighter shade was too dark for my skin tone and I couldn't get it to blend to my satisfaction. The texture and effectiveness of the product was great. I was able to utilize it over the summer when I was getting a spray tan regularly. But not sure I would by again. I'd recommend samples if they have them to make sure it works for you.

Having struggled to find a foundation that didn't flare up my eczema and dry skin for years I had almost given up until a friend recommended I try Benefit. I had a consultation and bought this and the Total Moisture Facial Cream and the Refined Finish Facial Polish and it has been brilliant! It goes on well with a brush and lasts all day. It doesn't dry my skin and my eczema has stayed away. I was reassured by the money-back guarantee but am glad to report it really works for me!

A waste of money

ScuzzBuzz
Location: Undisclosed

This is probably one of the only Benefit products that I don't like. I felt like I spent money on nothing. Not only does it not last for very long, but when applied it looks like you haven't applied anything at all, which made me use more of it to try and get a bit of a result. Although the natural look is one that I go for, this is maybe too "natural". I didn't see much of a difference in my skin other than it was a little oilier than usual, which made me feel less confident about the way my skin looked.

So many tricks with this!

Ivy32100
Location: Asheville, NC

Love that it's: “weightless, Smooth, easy to apply, just the right color, a great price”

This is the ultimate essential. I bought it yesterday in the "Benefit Besties" pack--great price! I love the tip shown on the internet on the Some Kind-A Gorgeous page (this product over "That Gal") and also Stephanie Harrison's tip with Girl Meets Pearl--brilliant! (you can see the video of it on the How To: Finding Mr. Bright video) I'm really pale and was deciding whether to buy light or medium shade. I decided to go with Benefit Besties (its such a bargain) and hope for the best. It was the exact right shade! I think it much look darker in the packaging because its denser... if you're pale and buying online i suggest you go with Medium because it's darker on the internet that in real life. It goes on so smooth and beautifully I love it! I thought it would feel too heavy but its practically weightless. Strongly reccomend it.

I got the sample size as part of Sephora's tan about town kit, and it's the first Benefit product (I have a lot!) that I can definitively say I dislike. The coverage is minimal, the feel is slippery if not oily, and- horror of horrors- it smells gross! Not, like, horribly nasty, but definitely unpleasant compared to all of Benefit's other products. I will use up this sample size and see if I can't find something I like about something: I'm rather opposed to the idea of not liking anything by Benefit.

I've purchased this product only about an week ago and is in love with it, 'Some Kinda Gorgeous' give you a flawless refined look, it works better with 'Hello Flawless' for setting the foundation. In the beginning I hesitated because the product looks pretty only, but I've been using it every single day but there was no break out on my skin, and I do have a very sensitive skin. Also this product is known to be used by most of Korean actress and idols. I love the product so much!

Silky finish, but a bit drying

PabloHoney9
Location: Jakarta, Indonesia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light

First thing and foremost, I like the finish of this foundation on my face, silky and smooth. I bought this knowing that it wouldn't give me much coverage, but that's the concealer's job anyway. Now, first time wearing it, for some reason my skin got really dry and started to show dry patches and flakes, especially on my cheeks, nose and forehead. However, I overcome that issue by extra moisturize my face beforehand. Then I applied less product on the areas where the dry patches showed up and use powder foundation for those areas instead. The thing that I like the most is that my face looked better throughout the day, as if the foundation just simply melted together with my skin, creating this beautiful glow. Granted, again, not a lot of coverage, but it still looks better than barefaced. I like to use this on my off days, when I just want something light on my face. Even though this foundation is not exactly what I had expected, I've found different solutions so that I can keep using it, at least until it's finished.

MelliMoon
Location: Paris, France

I received this as part of a gift set at Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it would be another cakey old foundation, but I was definitely wrong. It feels super smooth and beautiful on the skin. Doesn't dry it out, doesn't make it greasy either. It's perfect for someone like me who likes to have a flawless looking face without the obvious look of makeup. It's miracle stuff, and I don't think I'll ever buy another foundation again. It's affordable, but such a shame that it gets used up so quickly. Benefit, please give us more product in that cute packaging. We'll love you even more!

I am defiantly going to buy this again when I run out!

This was my first time trying this product. I bought it after reading the reviews. I had been using a competitor's stick type foundation that was discontinued. I am so glad it was discontinued and I got to try this wonderful foundation. It gives me coverage, no greasiness, no flakiness, no makeup settling in my wrinkles. Best thing is it doesn't feel greasy. WIth other products, I couldn't wait to wash off my makeup, with 'some kind of gorgeous', I wouldn't know I have it on except I'm stunning!!! Worth the price...so happy I found it

Love the feel

Katiecakes
Location: Springfield, MO, USA
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair

First of all, I want to say that I do love this product.I bought it in the lite shade. And from the packaging to the overall performance, it was good. Here are a couple things that I experienced when using it: Pros: It evened out my skin tone. I suffer from blemishes and redness, and it did even everything out. It didn't feel heavy. I don't like foundations that my skin can't breathe in, this was a very light, airy foundation that felt good on my skin. Plus, it's oil free so it never caused me to break out. It is convenient for traveling. I would take it with me to touch up at work, and I like that. Most women know how dire that mid-day touch up is. Cons: It is NOT for someone who wants and is expecting a full coverage foundation. Like I said previously, I break out on occasion and have some acne scarring on my cheeks. It didn't cover those up very well. This is for someone who has almost perfect skin and just wants something to even out their skin tone. I use it as a touch up foundation in the afternoon, over the foundation I used in the morning. As you can see, there are more pros than cons, so I definitely think this product is worth trying. If you're a lady who has relatively blemish free skin, this product was made for you. If you're someone like me who needs full coverage, purchase something like play sticks, or hello flawless. Hope this helped!

Looks great on my skin

Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “silky, lasts longer that other foundations”

I bought this product yesterday in lite. Before some kind-a gorgeous, I have been using Hello Flawless... The reason I gave this product 3 stars, despite all it's good reviews and all, is because it just doesn't seem right on my skin. This is probably the only foundation I've ever used that actually lasts on my skin. No matter what I use, within a few hours my skin gets super oily and shiny, and it's very noticeable. (+ I have acne) The problem with this foundation is that when I first apply it, it looks weird on my skin and doesn't conceal my redness away at first, I have to use Hello Flawless with a powder brush or Bluff Dust to finish the job. Otherwise, the texture is great, and it feels super silky just like most of the reviews said, but next time I'll definitely be buying Hello Flawless again instead of this one.

Found my new make up for life

equestrian975
Location: Fort Smith, AR, USA
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Dark

Pros: -Really does finish like a powder -Survived 98% humidity and 110 degree weather (never once streaked!) -Affordable -Completely evens out my skin and does not irritate it at all -Great for those of us with oily or combination skin types (I normally have to either add moisturizer or dab away excess oil depending on the day-with this product nothing is needed) Con: (only one) -Wish this make up came in a darker shade, I have the darkest one currently offered and it blends very well with my overall tone but it is just a hair lighter than the rest of my skin tone.

Good Foundation

Love that it's: “packaging”

I usually stick to Tinted Moisturizers but when the girl at the counter put it on me right away I felt I difference compared to other foundations I have tried in the past right away. It was light in terms of the feel on my face but to touch I was surprised my skin felt soft, velvety in a way. I was surprised that she did not use a lot and it seemed to even out my face.

Took a little getting used to for me with this one, Med was a little too dark and light was too light. I found that I coudnt apply with with a make up brush as it would be too heavy, but the sponge works fine. I have found that it was a little too oily on hot days, and not so good when I had belmishes. In saying that, Spring time, and clear skin I do find my self using this more and more. I just bought my 2nd round of this :D

this product is awesome

Love that it's: “Smooth”

I love this. I went to Debenhams for a benefit makeup makeover. This product was part of the makeover. And the best product, this gave me even coverage and my skin was silky smooth. It lasted frorm aroun 11am to 6pm, the longest a foundation has stayed on my skin. And ive tried a range of foundations. On the whole this product is really good.

Great light coverage sans oil!

kkdemilt
Location: Rockville, MD, USA
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “light, no oil”

I have oily skin and am constantly looking for a light foundation that won't clog pores. This stuff is perfect! It goes on smooth and covers what I want it to. I would highly recommend for those who are looking for something light that doesn't feel super heavy on the skin. I love that it's portable and easy to apply (which is a major concern for me). My only complaint is that my nose is dry and it shows through (but my benefit b.right skin care is working to correct that!).


Oct 18, 2011

Natural and wonderful:)

Kinsey
Location: Ohio
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “natural, easy”

I have a great tan/olive glow in the summer, and no real "acne", just occasional wind-chapped discoloration- so I don't like to put on a foundation that makes my skin look like something its not, so in the winter this is the BEST transition from no foundation in the summer to full coverage without making my face look like I painted something on. Better than any tinted moisturized I have ever tried:) I use this with a pinch of gel bronzer, talk to the tan( i'm not sure the still make it!) and a sweep of Dallas blush and I look very natural and great!


Oct 15, 2011

some kind of incredible!

ErinVM
Location: Undisclosed

Love that it's: “flawless”

Love this product! I shy away from foundations in general. I like the perfect, dew look so I use tinted moisturizer and under eye concealer and then blend it all to a perfect final face with this. It turns super smooth and silky like a powder but with out the dry look or feel. This is a must have!

Mischa14
Location: Australia
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “natural looking”

This foundation is great for me. Usually I hate the look of a full face of make up but this works, as the coverage is light and not too heavy... just enought to cover a few flaws and even out the tone. My skin still looks natural when I wear it. Its also nice for my oily skin. I still use some powder on top, but not nearly as much when I would use a "liqud " foundation. I use my fingers to apply, as it tends to get eaten up by the sponge. Nice foundation for good skin, if you want lots of coverage probably go for something else.

My everyday beauty essential

Isabel
Location: CA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “light, gives a natural smooth look, easily matches skin tone”

I love this foundation faker so much simply because it is light, gives my skin a silky smooth look and feel and it easily matches my skin tone. It makes my skin look naturally smooth that I use it everyday! I also use That Gal before applying this product for a nice pinkish glow. I have a very oily skin and it looks a bit too dewy if used alone so I make sure I dust a bit of loose oil-control powder with a powder brush to finish and it would last all day long. I've been using this product for a year now and it never failed me. One of Benefit's best products and definitely worth the price!


Jul 25, 2011

Absolutely love this

mandy222
Location: Undisclosed

My skin gets oily very easily. I have tried so many foundations and this is the only one which I absolutely love and which seems to work amazing. It balances out my skin and it does not make it oily. It is the best foundation I have ever used and I do not put much on.

Good coverage, but not good for oily skin.

ninjakriss
Location: USA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Fair

Since I have a very fair complexion, I was surprised when I found out that the shade fit my skin tone. The product went on really nicely, and the coverage was nice... but it was in no way matte on my oily skin. Love it, but I wouldn't purchase it again.


Jul 7, 2011

great product, but..

littleallie
Location: California
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

I find it to be quite chalky and heavy. It doesn't blend well (for me) and my rather dry skin. Much easier to blend with "that gal" primer underneath, in fact that is the only way I can get it to blend nicely. The only Benefit product I can complain even remotely about. I have very fair skin and it doesn't look nice on me. Also, I don't like the feeling of not setting a wet product on my face with some type of powder. some kinda-a gorgeous, in all of Benefit's majestic formula skills, is amazing and doesn't require this powder. It's an all in one deal--however, like I said, it still feels wet though doesn't appear wet, and I am not a fan. I can't deny that it is a beautiful product and leaves skin with a lovely satin finish!


Jul 7, 2011

Great although a little thick

kimbescz

I like this product, but living in Texas in the summer, this product is not my friend. It seems to almost melt off some days. However, I will say - it covers amazingly.

I have mixed feeling about the value

mhanington
Location: Edmonton Alberta Canada
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light

I recently purchased "some kind of gorgeous" thinking it would be a great fix for the days that I dont have much time to spend on my make up. I fould the colour and texture were great however for the priced I paid $36 cdn you get VERY little product. Almost felt like it was a sample give away not a staple product to keep in your make bag.


Jul 5, 2011

It's alright... But not the BeneFit best.

FuelTheFire
Location: Galway, Ireland
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Deep

I think that in terms of texture, feel and consistency, Some Kinda Gorgeous is up there with the best of cream foundations. It gives even-toned coverage and yet it's light and matte. That said I would choose Get Even or Hello Flawless over it any day. This foundation may not be as stereo-typically conspicuous as other cream foundations however it doesn't look any bit as natural as its BeneFit counterparts! [I would also like to point out that though this is a "cream to powder" foundation, I found it to be much more cream than powder] Lastly, [and this may only apply to the shade "Deep #03", I'm speaking for the shade that I used] but I found that the only time the colour looked completely natural was in the evenings, under artificial lights. Outdoors in daylight it doesn't look too light a shade or too dark, it does however appear slightly too dull a shade for real skin; it looks lifeless!

The name says it all: GORGEOUS!

summergirl
Location: Hoofddorp, The Netherlands
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “light, sheer, coverage, blendable”

I've only used this product once and I already love it. It covers what needs to be covered, yet is really light and sheer so you still see my skin, it just looks better. Also it feels like my skin can still breathe, which is really important in the summer. I used a foundation brush to blend the shade and this worked perfectly. I'm not a big fan of any sponge in makeup, and this one is brown to begin with which feels dirty somehow. Bottom line: great product, must have.


Jun 28, 2011

The perfect base

slowdownbaby
Location: Portugal, Lisbon
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “light, sheer, matte finish”

I don't have perfect skin, specially in this time of the year where I have college finals, I break out like crazy! Even though this foundation faker has sheer coverage you can always add up a little bit of concealer and set it with powder and you will look flawless! I have oily skin and some redness on my nose and cheek area, but this foundation covers it really well while giving that perfect skin finish (I use a flat top brush to apply it). I like to put concealer after and then a little bit of powder and I'm good to go! Must have product for me.

Lightweight

Paiers
Location: Singapore

Love that it's: “lightweight”

This product is lightweight but covers red patches on my skin just fine. The downside of this product is it emphasizes dry patches on my skin but it can easily be remedied by b.right moisture emulsion SPF15. I would not recommend this for people that prefer a heavier coverage or have dry patches on the skin. Tip: key is to blend well.

the essence of 'fake it don't cake it'

tootsie
Location: San Diego, CA
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light

I've always hated the idea of using liquid foundation and powders, and etc. etc...until I found 'Some Kind-a Gorgeous'. Is just the perfect combo of light, and sheer, and gives my freckled face a nice glow. The best advice I can give on this product is to invest in the foundation brush that Benefit does- the foam that comes with it applies too much product, and you end up wasting it. Combining the right brush with this is the perfect combo for a daily foundation of loveliness.

Waste of Money

Ambi

Love that it's: “chalky, dry, heavy”

I love Bennefit Cosemetics, but I do not love this product. I found this foundation to be chalky, dry and heavy to wear. Also I have very fair skin, but the light made me look ill and the medium was too dark. I would like to mention this is the only Bennefit product I have ever been disapointed with.

Love that it's: “best foundation”

I hadly ever use foundation, I have pretty decent skin to begin with and most foundations get my skin dry. However this one didn't at all, it made my skin look flawless on the bits I had dry and red-ish. I loved it! I use it every time I have photoshots or when I find my skin not good enough.

cadencelake
Location: Australia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Olive

My absolute favourite product, I can't live without it. I have a skin tone that is really difficult to match (a professional makeup artist with 20 types of foundation at her disposal STILL had to mix 3 shades) but this is so light that it goes on perfectly without making me look too pale or orange. It's not heavy coverage, but I prefer a lighter feel anyway - you don't feel like you're wearing anything! And it doesn't dry or irritate my horrendously sensitive skin.


May 3, 2011

Love it!

LadySong
Location: Seoul, South Korea
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “Smooth, blends easily, light coverage”

I have recommended this to my friends as the perfect foundation. It's not thick and heavy feeling like most foundation. It gives the perfect coverage when you don't want to leave the house with a naked face. It's quick and easy to use.


May 2, 2011

Great, but not for me

BenefitGeek
Location: Chicago, IL
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

I liked it, but I need more coverage. I think if you have better skin to begin with, this is your stuff. If you have some redness, acne, or need more coverage, maybe the Playsticks or Hello Flawless would be better. However, I would still recommend it. Super light.

I am not a fan of foundation b/c it always feels so heavy on. This is a great alternative. The coverage is very light... but just enough. The compact (so cute) is perfect to drop in your purse so you can have it for any touch ups you may need throughout the day.

JoanneT
Location: Sheffield, Engliand
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light

I really didn't like this product it was too greasy and no amount of blending stopped this from streaking. it highlighted any small patch of dry skin and was uneven. the compact attracted alot of dust and lint like nothing i've ever seen before with a compact and it was kept with other products and they are ok, so i'm not sure what went wrong. Also the sponge that is included i had only used it twice and when i returned to it a third time (only a few days after) the sponge had become mouldy with black and green fur! maybe it was a bad batch or whatever but this product is just not right for me :(

Every now and again I will begin to breakout throughout my T-zone and I know that I don't have to freak out because I have some kind-a gorgeous. With this product I use a foundation brush to swirl it onto my face just covering up the problem areas and then blending it into the rest of my skin. Some kind-a gorgeous gives me the insurance I need to strut my gorgeous all day long!

Some kind-a gorgeous is perfect for those who want to wear make-up, but don't want it to show. It goes on flawless and does not let up throughout the day. A must have for the bene-babes that want to keep it natural looking!

Great for 'normal' skin

Barh
Location: Undisclosed
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light

This is a great product, its great for a light coverage to even out your skin tone and have a soft silky feel the texture is great, i love the way it is liquid to powder, it is very easy to apply and goes on smoothly with no streaks. I would not recommend this product to someone who either has dry skin or very oily skin. If you have dry skin it tends to stick and shows up your dry patches and if you have oily skin it makes it look more shiny and comes off quick.


Feb 9, 2011

one of a kind

MyJazzmo
Location: Belgium
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair

At first I didn't know what to expect but I'm really glad I got this product. I have fair to light skin and both the medium and the light version seem to work for me. It is quite hard to explain what this product looks like on your skin. I would say like foundation and powder in one. I have an oily T-zone but I don't need any setting powder with this. Really worth a try and one of Benefit's best inventions yet.

I have been looking for a good foundation for a while now and this one is perfect. I have very fair skin and usually about NW 15 or very light depending on the store. The lite blends right into my skin and doesn't look leave any signs of cake or streaks on my face. This foundation is perfect for anyone who wants mediumish coverage and wants to apply it very easily. I just use my fingers to apply it right onto my face and blend.

feels great

rainbow1927
Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light

I got this as a gift and absolutely love it. Before discovering this product I had always used powder foundation which made me look a little chalky/dry. I used to wonder how some girls had that sparkly, dewy look. Well this is definitely part of it. It goes on easily with either the sponge provided or a brush. It makes your skin look healthy and fresh and it also makes your skin feel so soft! I am pretty fair and use the original colour. My guess is I could probably use the light shade as well, but I actually like that the medium shade gives me some added colour.

The perfect foundation!

Linda92126
Location: San Diego

Love that it's: “won't live without!”

I first tried this on at Sephora, and truly it was like no other foundation I have used in my life! I was skeptical that since there was only one color option for me (medium) that it wouldn't match my skintone. I was wrong because when I put it on it blended seamlessly! The formula is creamy, but once it hits your skin it turns in to a blendable powder. It makes my face flawless and most importantly it doesn't make me break out. Simply put, I love the stuff and am never going back to liquid foundation ever again. Some kind of gorgeous goes everywhere with me, I don't leave the house without it!

Definitely a Keeper!

Love that it's: “gorgeous, Versatile”

I first tried this foundation on a visit to benefit outlet in a local department store, and I was very pleasantly surprised. The creamy, smooth texture was perfect and felt wonderful on my skin. I usually shy away from the heavy duty foundations, but this one is oil free, and does not cake onto skin. I found to accompanying sponge helpful, but often resorted to using my fingertips. Not only did it look amazing after application, but it stayed put through a long, merciless day of Christmas shopping!

Love that it's: “the best i've ever used”

I have spent years trying to find the perfect foundation. Liquids, minerals, cream to powder. They worked great for the first few days, then the oily skin, acne, and dryness would set in. I would be crushed because I was paying alot of money for prestigious cosmetics that turned out to be no better than drugstore make up. I had a gift card to Sephora and just said why not, it can't be any worse than everything else I've tried. I used it the next morning before work and it looked wonderful. The cream instantly turns to powder the second it hits your skin. It's blendable and I love how easy it is to apply, didn't irritate my skin, no breakouts...this is THE product that turned me in to a Benejunkie :-)

Love that it's: “cakey, orange looking”

When I tested this product at the store, it was fine. But after I purchased it and looked at my face inside of my car it looked absolutely horrible. The spots I applied it was orange and cakey on my skin. Never buy again and definitely not worth your money.

Great oil-free formula but lack of shades

Sand
Location: Asia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “light-weight, oil-free, mattifying”

First of all, I have to state that I have oily and acne-prone skin. For me, a good foundation has to be long-lasting and to stay matte. This foundation has a creme-to-powder formula which is also oil free. This is amazing because I can skip any setting powder and my face still looks matte. I can even use it to touch up my makeup. It's not as dry as a powder but it does the job of mattifying my skin. The coverage of this foundation is light to medium and it feels very light-weight on skin which I like!!! However, the down side of this foundation is the lack of shades available. Although the foundation is light, it doesn't blend in perfectly to my skin tone. My skin tone is medium beige but the original shade is a bit orange. It is not literally orange but when I comparing the skin tones of my neck and my face, obviously my face looks so tan. So I hope Benefit can provides more shades like Hello Flawless.


Dec 19, 2010

perfect for anyone who needs minimal coverage.

lifeinyouryears
Location: Sugar Land, TX
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

first of all: this is NOT for those who need heavy duty coverage! it is a light coverage product, for those who just want to a natural look and want to avoid all the products that make you look shiny (especially if you have oily skin). this product is perfect for that. it's not too heavy - although it appears that way looking in the box - but it's really not. if you're worried about that use a different applicator then the one supplied. but i really love this product SO much. so light, natural, and just what i need.

The first time I put Some kind-a gorgeous on I was in awe. I didn't even have to apply any concealer under my eyes, for it was perfect in disguising my not-so-tired look in a regular morning. I only think it should come in different shades in order to please all skin tones.

This product is ok, it is very creamy and it is sheer and since I use this under my eyes to cover my dark circles. This product does not cover much for me. I like heavy duty coverage, maybe for someone who wants a lighter coverage.

Love this Product

LeeV
Location: Vaughan Ontario

Love that it's: “fantastic”

I have very sensitive skin and break out easily even though I'm over 35 years old. I have tried a lot of very expensive foundations and everyone of them has either made my skin very itchy or extremely dry. The cosmetician at SDM advised me to try this foundation and it's fantastic - NO BREAKOUTS and I love the coverage, its very silky to the skin not cakey at all. If you have tried everything and your still not happy - try this one you will love it.

Great product for oily to normal skin

berezka
Location: Moscow, Russia
Eyes: Gray
Skin tone: Olive
Love that it's: “flawless, oil-free, convenient”

It is REALLY oil free — actually, it feels like water on skin, but has quite a good coverage. I use it as a foundation in the morning and as a correcting and matifying powder during the day. I like the sponge very much. I was afraid not to find the proper color among only three, but the Original one fitted my skin surprisingly well. The package is very cute and convenient. The only problem is that it doesn't go well together with dry and irritated skin.

Fake foundation feels like NO foundation!

Love that it's: “Light Weight, amazing”

Lately I started breaking out and I my face was getting so oily. I was suggested this product at the Benefit counter and was told that it was a very light weight foundation and they were right! I apply with a foundation brush and then I cover it with the "Hello Flawless" powder which gives me a matte look! I LOVE THIS PRODUCT AND NOW ADDICTED!

Good coverage, but not recommended for OILY skin.

Love that it's: “oily, greasy”

I bought this product (in 'light') after one of the Benefit beauticians at my local store put it on for me. I loved it at first, but after a while it mixed with the oils on my skin and turned it a bit orange. I have extremely oily skin, unfortunately and though this product claims to be "oil-free," it feels like it adds to it. It does seem to give a good, smooth coverage, so I would probably recommend this product to those with normal skin types.

This is MY foundation. THE foundation. I never want to go without this wonderful miracle compact of amazing foundation. The colour always matches, it always glides on smooth and the finish is perfectly matte. LOVE IT.

Light and Bright

Love that it's: “brilliant”

I absolutely love this foundation! When I started using it I had just stopped using another brands foundation that had made me feel like I was wearing a mask. This foundation however I have no complaints with, it's light, and it perfects my skin.


Nov 22, 2010

Awesome and simple!

Libby

Some kinda gorgeous is an awesome product. Its lightweight, but still has great coverage and lasts all day long. (My tip- I like to use this and then use Hello Flawless as my finishing powder!)


Nov 22, 2010

Light-weight coverage.

bluebird
Location: Ireland
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “light, beautiful, easy to use”

I loved this product, it is super light-weight and blends very easily. The three shades will match absolutely anyone, even if the colour doesn't look like it will; it adapts to your skin tone. It is great for people who don't want heavy coverage or that ''caked-on'' feeling, although if you require alot of coverage this product isn't for you.


Nov 22, 2010

Light!

Jessa
Location: Undisclosed
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Deep
Love that it's: “light, little coverage”

This product is not my favorite, but it is definitely my favorite 'light' foundation. I have deep skin tone, so I bought the 'deep' color. To be honest, the color is too pink. It is soooo light and has a little coverage. It covers up my tiny pimples and stuff. It is very good for quick makeup and no-makeup look, NO ONE NOTICED IT when I did my no-makeup look with Some Kind-a Gorgeous! Right after applying it gives that powdery finish, which I lovee :) I also LOOOVEE the packaging! Of course, everybody knows that Benefit's packaging is ALWAYS so ADORABLE but this one is so cute!! (especially the box!) One dislike is the smell. Even after 1-2 mins, the chemical-like weird scent is still there....Very weird. I definitely recommend this foundation if you're looking for a light foundation!

This is the first foundation (and I'm not a spring chicken) that does not cause any type of reaction! It is so light yet thoroughly covers all my flaws. Can't live without it:)

Perfect

Elisabeth

This is the perfect powder foundation mix. I use this all the time, and I adore how it evens out my skin and isn't to heavy on my skin. I love this, and this is one of the first products I used that got me hooked on Benefit

flawless skin!

summertimecrime
Location: omaha, nebraska
Eyes: Brown

Love that it's: “flawless skin”

I have been searching for the perfect foundation to give me that "flawless" look-I suffer from super oily skin (which I am told is mother nature's way of preserving youth) and large pores on my nose/apples of my cheeks. I picked up one of these little lovey compacts because I am a Benefits FANATIC and I had heard good things about this particular one. What I heard is absolutely true! Combined with a good primer, this gives me flawless skin! Covers up my pores completely and really gives an airbrushed look...I adore it!


Nov 19, 2010

Super balanced foundation

BeneFitAholic
Location: Portugal
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “lightweight, balanced”

I really recommend this foudation. I have oily skin and this doesnt let my skin get oily and it lasts all day. The color is the best. I love that the undertone is pinky and not orange. I also recommend to use the sponge or a buffer brush because this is a cream-to-powder and it turns to powder when it touches skin so i dont think that applying this foundation it with our fingers will give the best finish. I found that the coverage is very good although it is very light and i dont even feel it on my skin. I like to use it with Benetint and over it One Hot Minute which also has a pink undertone, looks great. I will definitely buy it again.

Love that it's: “perfect, silky”

I hate foundation. And having oily (in the summer) and combo skin any other time I love this foundation (faker!)! I was afraid of the cream aspect, but it never breaks me out! I can wear it super sheer or build it up for tons of coverage. I wear the medium and it matches very nicely. Also, stays on for awhile, too! My BFF wore it to a dance and it stayed on all night. :) I also love the cream to powder finish! Leaves my skin sooo silky!


Nov 18, 2010

Love love love

Stego
Location: SF, CA

Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “silky, matte”

I LOVE this product... It's the perfect foundation, cream-to-powder that doesn't go on greasy or dry out my skin. The color is magical - (I use Med) how it blends with my skin tone and doesn't look too dark or light. It's like it KNOWS how to match my skin.... It's super easy to apply with a foundation brush or fingers or the included sponge. Please don't stop making this! It will be part of my five minute face routine forever! (The only acceptable reason for you to stop making this is if you were to re-issue it with SPF!)


Nov 18, 2010

meh.

HeatherS
Location: New York, NY
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

Let me first say, I love Benefit. Next let me say, I was deeply disappointed in this product. Like all of their products it feels wonderful and weightless and it has that "looks like you're wearing no makeup at all" look. That being said, it looks like I have nothing on! I get the fact that it's not a concealer or heavy foundation but I literally don't get anything from this product. I thought perhaps it would be good to even out my complexion a little bit (freckled and I love it!) but it failed. I added a little more and it just started looking streaky. Perhaps the application is wrong or it's just not a good product for me. Either way- let me suggest You Rebel for a more comprehensive, lightweight, barely there complexion evener.


Nov 18, 2010

Great for skin

lilmisssunshine

This foundation is light-weight and doesn't feel heavy after application, which is always a huge plus! Who wants to look cakey! Since the texture is light, you will not over apply :) It evens up my complexion in a minute.

Awesomeness

glamourkiller

Love that it's: “wonderful, perfect, easy, light”

I LOVE this product. It goes on super light but actually provides a decent amount of protection. I don't have super crazy skin but it is pretty unevenly colored and this really does the trick of evening it out.

I am soooo glad that benefit has Light color of this product! the original color of some kinda gorgeous was a little bit dark for my skin tone. i use it everyday, everywhere. But,, if you are looking for a product that can perfectly cover up the blemish, it can't do it. Yes, it will cover up a little bit of the blemish and I like it that way, my make up looks more natual :)

My skin has many dry patches so I don't typically use powder and thought I couldn't use a cream-to-powder option. But knowing how I love my other Benefit products and after reading the rave reviews I gave this a try. You guessed it... some kind-a gorgeous is different! Better! It moves with your skin, becomes your skin really. It's wonderful and I've found a new foundation. :)


Nov 17, 2010

Great foundation "faker"

freybaby
Location: Corvallis, OR
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “wonderful”

I've tried all the liquids, powders, you name it, but they all look like foundation. I'm not looking for heavy coverage, just something to even out my skin tone, and this does the job well! It feels oily at first, but 3 seconds later, it feels like a light powder. It's really easy to put on, and my only complaint is that it runs out quickly.


Nov 17, 2010

Maggie

I love love love this product! I was skeptical but soon found out how foolish I was for worrying! The skin tone match is spot on! And it conceals like a thick heavy concealer but is as light on your face as if you weren't wearing makeup at all! Its by far one of my most sought after products! Its also stays all day long and works well with all my other Benefit products!


Nov 17, 2010

The best thing I could find

Mystickitten
Location: Austin, TX
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

I have pretty nice skin to start out with so I didn't need a full coverage foundation. My skin can also get oily when I used a tinted moisturizer so I was at a loss until I found this. This product will be great for you if you have similar problems with finding a good skin evener. Its so light and blendable too that even though I was a tad worried that the original might be too dark for my medium skin tone, it was just perfect. Well done Benefit


Nov 17, 2010

It's a great texture, but not enough shades...

Kara
Location: Chapel Hill, NC
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “Smooth”

It goes on extremely smooth, and you end up with a matte finish. This is good for evening out your complexion, but don't go with this product if you want to hide blemishes or like opaque coverage. All in all, it suits my needs well and I'd buy it again! It's just too bad there's not a shade a little darker than original, but lighter than deep.


Nov 17, 2010

It makes me look natural.

Anny

Actually it is not strong to cover some pimples or blemish on face but makes skin look really naturally, so i like it use for daily make-up. (I think i have skin color of asian typically, so I think I fit well when i wear the lite one.) Becuse of using everyday, my gorgeous already almost done...oh...it is desaster live without it. I'll get again ASAP. i am sure if you guys have not really dry skin (I am not recommend it for those who have dry skin.) maybe almost people will be satisfied. :)

natural look and silky feel

lucky
Location: Foster City, CA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light

It feels silky and even some kind luxury, and the finish look is very natural, so people won't recognize you are wearing a makeup. It will work out even better with the dandelion powder (makes your cheek glow) and dr. feel good(help the complexion stay longer). And I usually just use my finger instead of the sponge, which will make me look more natural.


Nov 17, 2010

The best daily foundation I have ever had!

SarahC

Love that it's: “foundation”

I absolutely love this product. It is useful to lightly cover up the complexion or some spots. It feels natural and looks natural! I can use this product everyday because it just gives a natural and brightened look without any 'fake' feeling. I can use my fingers, sponge in it, or a brush to apply this, and all works well!!!!! Just must-have item!!!!!!!!!


Nov 17, 2010

Everyday foundation + Perfect for touch ups!

eullee
Location: New York
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Fair

As its description reads, Some kinda Gorgeous is the foundation "faker" that goes on light but still evens out your tone perfectly. It becomes really handy when you're in a hurry in the morning and also later during the day when you need a quick touch up. If you want more coverage, you can also use Some Kinda Gorgeous first (as like a "base") and use your other liquid foundation on top. When you use it this way, you really don't need any highlighter- Some kinda gorgeous under your foundation tones out your skin and also gives you the shine! I would recommend this to everyone.

Love that it's: “wonderful all day coverage without an oily feel.”

I love, love, love this product! I have never found something so flawless on my face. I have larger pores on my nose and foundations sink into them making me look pitted and oily. When I first tried this foundation faker I was amazed that it didn't sink into my pores, make my face feel, or look oily. It lasts a long time and gives the over all look of blemish free healthy skin. Thank you Benefit for making me feel as beautiful on the outside as I feel inside!


Nov 16, 2010

easy to apply, natural finish, great packaging

madamJ
Location: Sydney, Australia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light

Like a tinted moisteriser in a cream compact, this product is great for on the go application & blends in very well. loooove the packaging so much! That being said it doesn't offer much coverage so if you have skin issues you'll need concealer - i use the erase paste under my eyes after i put this on. also it dries semi matte, not fully matte & if you wear sunscreen underneath like me you'd need to blot throughout the day [i use the porefessional on top & underneath my problem areas so it's all good =) The worse thing about this is the smell - awful awful oily smell, please please please Benefit can you either mask it with something more pleasant or take away all smells completely? it's only an issue when i apply around my nose so i try not t breath in too much when i do this.

sheer and subtle, yet makes a huge difference

justbesimple
Location: Houston, TX

Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “easy, natural-looking”

When I first applied it, I thought it was so sheer you wouldn't even be able to tell it was on. Then one day my sister asked me to put it on one half of my face so she could see what the big deal was, and we were astonished at what a HUGE difference it made to my skin. It's hard to believe something so sheer and subtle can make such an impact on evening out your skin tone and making you look great! This is my go-to item when I'm in a hurry; just a few swipes with the included sponge on the areas where I'm most red, a light dusting of setting powder and I'm out the door. I highly recommend this product.


Nov 16, 2010

So so

Ktee212

Love that it's: “fantastic”

Purchased SKOG Lite when it first came out, put it in my make-up drawer and forgot about it for almost a month! When I finally tried it, I used the sponge it came with and had uneven coverage. I used a foundation brush the second time and a matte setting powder and it made all the difference. Perfect for light coverage, and thank goodness for the lite color!!! My combination skin loves the formula, and have yet to report breakouts.


Nov 16, 2010

Fantastic coverage for on the go

GogirlGo
Location: Portland, OR
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “efficient, balmy”

Pros: quick application, blends in easily, just enough coverage, compact cute packaging, balmy smooth texture Cons: sometimes leaves eraser-like clumps if not applied correctly. I use this when I'm running late or when I know I will be out all day and may need a touch up. This product instantly provides coverage that is light enough to not look caked on, but also reduces the appearance of dark spots and pores. A good product for emergency situations!

I use this product every~~~day! My skin is sensitive, so some foundations make rash or pimple on my face. I threw away many foundations before meeting this product!! Now, I am using third one!! It is really smooth and makes my skin looks young. After having baby, my skin change to dry skin. But this product moisturize my skin! I use Dr. feelgood then use this one and hello flawless. I gain confidence from these three steps! Also, I like the case too. I always put this one in my bag.

Love that it's: “fantastic, practical, amazing”

Great product. I love that it goes on smoothly and isn't heavy like other foundations. It gives better coverage than other powder products too. I also love that there are three general colors--one color can be used for various skin tones and shades. So whether it's winter or summer, I can continue using the same color because it just blends right in (where as if I were to use a different type of foundation, I would have to buy a new color in order to match the season). Great compact case that's practical for throwing my purse or backpack.


Nov 16, 2010

Perfect light coverage!

Louie
Location: Undisclosed

Easy to use and nongreasy, this foundation-faker gives my skin a dewy glow. It smooths blotchy areas without feeling heavy. I do need a little you're bluffing! occasionally when my sensitive skin is irritated. This is my everyday foundation. For special occasions, I do use playsticks for full coverage, but they take longer to apply and are heavier-feeling - compared to this, at least.


Nov 16, 2010

i got this as a present and have loved it ever since! so easy to apply and makes my complexion look flawless. i just use That Gal primer underneath and it gives me the same amount of coverage a normal foundation would give me but feels much lighter! THis is a must have!


Nov 16, 2010

Great foundation for on-the-go

melloe
Location: Chicago
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

I have the miniature version of the medium shade, and I love it a lot. It gives my skin a smooth tone even makes my face feel softer! As with any foundation, I would advise not to apply too much, otherwise it will look caked on. I love the packaging, and the size is convenient to carry around.


Nov 16, 2010

I really, really love this product. It's like foundation...

Peachblossom
Location: Germany
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Fair

I really, really love this product. It's like foundation and concealer all in one. First, it's a creamy texture and then it turns into a powdery finish making your skin really dewy. I like that a lot. The coverage is medium, so you need to apply concealer on your spots or dark circles. The compact is really practical, because you can just throw it in your purse for touch-ups. That's how easy make-up works.


Nov 16, 2010

good sheer foundation

Shannon
Location: Raleigh, NC
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

Works really well with my light skin tone. Goes on really sheer, but still covers up my red cheeks. My skin tends to be really dry during winter months and this didn't dry my skin like other cream-to-powder foundations. I usually pair it with georgia powder for fuller coverage, but works well without.


Nov 16, 2010

10 out of 10

Alli
Location: Boston, MA
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “flawless, creamy, excellent coverage”

I LOVE this foundation. It is the best I have ever used. It is creamy, soft, feather-light, incredibly blendable and long lasting. It produces a perfect photo-ready finish that doesn't even require use of a concealer. It perfectly evens out skin tone to look absolutely flawless. The applicator sponge works great, but does absorb a lot of the product, so maybe there is a better tool for applying? Sometimes I just use clean hands to apply. If used every day, it will disappear fast- maybe lasting several weeks. but it is absolutely worth the price. This is an incredible product, especially during winter-time when skin can get dry and powders look too.. powdery, and liquid foundation doesn't blend as well. This is the best of both worlds with a cherry on top.

I am the BIGGEST fan of Benefit Cosmetic products but have found a bit of disapointment with this particular product. I have found that is does not cover very well and it makes my face greasy. I thought the idea of a foundation that could fit pratically everyone was a good idea, but unfortuantly, it's too good to be true. Tried a sample product once, and will not be doing it again.

Best foundation for those who don't like foundation. Oil free, blends easily, this creamy foundation hides imperfections in an easy one-step. Travel friendly, too! This cute little package is perfect for on the go or staying at home. Does its job, without the mess or over-made up look of other foundations. Compliments my medium skin tone all year long!

Best Foundation for Hyper Sensitive Skin

isachi
Location: New York, NY
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “flawless”

My skin does not like having product on it, so I always struggle with foundations because they usually set off a reaction. Not Some Kind of Gorgeous! It's light enough that I can wear it without my skin freaking out (I barely even know I'm wearing it myself) and provides enough coverage to give me a flawless looking complexion.

This product is a must for your cosmetic bag!

Love that it's: “flawless”

Some kind-a gorgeous foundation is my absolute favorite make-up product. It goes on so smoothly and blends in so well that it doesn't look like you are wearing foundation. It just looks like you have naturally flawless skin (which most do not). Unlike many other products I have tried, this Benefit product does not have to be reapplied throughout the day so it lasts longer.

Nice foundation

Location: Montevideo, Uruguay
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “good”

I'm not crazy about this product even though it works quite well and the reason is it's smell. It's not bad but it's not good if you know what I mean. It kinda has a plastic/industrial smell that I don't appreciate going on my face. I don't wear it alone, I sweep some Hello Flawless and some Sugarbomb over it.

Love that it's: “perfection”

If applied the right way (dab and blend), this foundation can be your new best friend. Come Winter, my skin freaks so I apply Dear John moisturizer (oh my gawd), That Gal primer, and Some Kind of Gorgeous and, amazingly, my skin looks like it could be a movie star's. I'm in love. Thank you, Benefit <3 P.S. I'm a pale gal, but the light shade they offer is for vampires.

Love that it's: “love love love”

my skin looks perfect. not matte. just my skin, but flawless. i am an asian with medium olive with golden undertone, but actually go in between the lite and original, and found that i go more toward the lite since the lite has more of a yellow undertone, as suppose to the original which i think has more f a pinkish undertone.

Better than liquid foundation

GallianoGirl
Location: Saint-Petersburg, Russia
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair

I have oily skin, and when I first apply it on my skin, a texture was oily too. I was disappointed, but through 2 minutes it's like "dried"on my skin! All day long my skin was mattify and fresh! But I think it's more for winter and autumn, not for summer.

Natural-looking

SDerrida
Location: Orange County, CA
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Olive

This product makes my skin look smooth, healthy, and fresh. It would be perfection if it worked well over my sunscreen, but I haven't yet found a sunscreen that doesn't cause this to "pill" and cake-up, either upon application (after waiting 20 minutes for the sunscreen to sink in), or a couple of hours into wear. I blame the sunscreens, not Some Kind-A Gorgeous, but they are more necessary than foundation. Some Kind-A Gorgeous is my go-to foundation for evening events. Most of the time, the original color works with my skin, even when I may be slightly tan, because it's so sheer. This never makes me look pale or chalky.

At first I was apprehensive to use this product on my face because it had an oily consistency. Finally, I broke down and tried it and it didn't sit on my skin like I thought it would, it actually absorbed and I did not break out from it at all... and never have. It's light and fast coverage perfect for warmer weather. It also seems to moisturize my dry skin.

Wendi
Location: Houston, TX USA
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair

This original shade works quite well for my fair complexion, If used sparingly and it's blended it well it looks so natural. I origianlly bought the fair but it was too light for me, I exchanged it for the orginal and I really love it. I use the Hello Flawless on top and the two work great together. Some kind of gorgeous can be used alone for a no make up look but to me it's almost like a primer, my pores are less visible and my powder goes on much better. I didn't give it 5 stars because I notice when I use this I get a little more oily than I like, but blotting takes care of it ;)

I got a trial size with a set and I was surprised at how silky smooth Some Kind-a Gorgeous is. It really goes on very smooth and has a soft finish. It melts really easy on your fingers, so you might want to use the sponge or other applicator.

THANK YOU Benefit! Original made me look wayyyyy too dark, and aside from a little bit more oiliness on my face when i wear this (maybe my already oily skin, im sure its not the oil-free foundation faker!), it looks great, love the package too! Wont beat the playstick in my opinion, but still great :)

Rani
Location: Undisclosed

There are many great reivews here, and I echo the sentiment - this is a must-have Benefit product! Goes on almost sheer and creamy, and then dries to a light powder. I use this all the time and believe it is made of high quality ingredients to get the right texture. Now we need this product with SPF....

This is seriously one of the best products that Benefit has to offer. It evens out complexion, with sheer coverage (foundation faker!) while also making pores near invisible for a smooth delicate finish.

Susan

Like a tinted moisturizer only without the moisturizing and BETTER =p Sheer coverage that hides large pores and other uglies without making you look fake .. beat that! The only downside would be that it CAN take a bit of product to get the desired effect so it doesn't stretch as far as some of the other foundation products by benefit.

Maria

Reeeeeeeeeaaalllly wanted to adore this, but when the lady used it on me at the counter, mum said it was wayy to dark or my tone. Meant to be oil free, but found it oily on my combination skin. Love the record design, so so so clever. Maybe light will be better? Or too light? Ill stick to my Playstick Spin The Bottle maybe :D ps. they need samples, small ones so people can try before forking out because its expensive.

Like the product description says, it's definitely silky and evens out your complexion very well. It's very convenient if you're in a rush or on the go. My only complaint is that it's powdery sometimes. But besides that, i'm a loyal fan! I've been through 3 or 4 of these bad boys :)

Allison
Location: Sugar Land

Loved this foundation! I bought the Translucent shade, but I felt like it was TOO translucent for me, so I'll have to try something else. But it is very comfortable, very airy and I felt like if I had gotten a shade closer to my skin tone it would have given me better coverage. I do prefer using another brush instead of the application sponge, however.

Carly

This stuff is incredible! The cream-to-powder texture gives a gorgeous, weightless airbrushed effect, and it really is easy to blend into most skin tones. The big downside is that it goes quickly, since I have to use quite a bit to get the coverage I want.
