Benefit's Hello Flawless powder is a pretty full coverage powder and you can use it in several ways. If you're blessed with good skin, you might want to wear it alone with just some concealer - on good skin and lazy days I've tried this and I've been impressed with the coverage. If I'm not wearing foundation underneath I'll apply with the sponge that comes included as I find it easier to build that way. It leaves a lovely matt finish that lasts although I do find a need to moisturise well to just wear a powder, and because of that I sabotage the staying power a bit because my combination skin tends to get shiny in some areas.
The way to wear this that really works for me is over the top of a liquid foundation. There's something about this powder that manages to make my skin look so even and I rarely find that I'm able to achieve that with many products I've tried. To avoid cakeiness I'll make sure my liquid foundation is set before dusting over Hello Flawless with a big fluffy brush. If I've got any areas that need a bit more help I'll add a little extra with the sponge just where I need it.
I love the finish this gives and it lasts all day, although I do use it alongside a longwear liquid foundation (Esteé lauder double wear) and they're a perfect match for each other. My face will get shiny during the day - that's just a fact of my life - so the Hello Flawless compact is perfect for taking with me in my handbag for touch ups as it includes a mirror and a little brush as well as the sponge.
My shade is cute as a bunny honey - perfect name! - and I can honestly say I will be rushing out to purchase this as soon as I come close to running out. I'm thinking I may also need to try the Hello Flawless liquid foundation which is called oxygen wow as I might be missing out there too!
