So the other week I thought I would try out a more expensive foundation which so happens to be this one. If you are on a budget then I wouldn't go buying this straight away as it is more pricey at £25.50 but I think the quality of the foundation is worth the buy. As soon as I got this back to my house my housemates were like "I love Benefit products they're so good" and as this is my first product by them, it made me excited to try it out. Now I have quite a pale complexion so I went for the Ivory colour which is best suited for light to medium coverage. The foundation claims to have an 'oxygen wow hydrating complex which boosts cellular respiration, protect against environmental stresses and prevent signs of ageing' (yes I know i'm not that old to need that part just yet). It's also oil free with an SPF of 25 which for me is good as my skin can get quite oily.

When applying a little goes a looong way and I don't even end up using one full pump, so for me half a pump is good. Once applied it has such light coverage that it leaves your skin still looking like skin, unlike some foundations which have a more thick coverage and can be more obvious against your skin. It's more of a natural coverage this one, so if you are looking for something that's more heavy on your skin I wouldn't go for this. For me it's also rather good at covering up small blemishes and any redness on my face so unless I have a whopping great big spot (yuck), I don't really bother with any concealer when using this. I also find that it has fantastic stay power lasting all day without any touch ups.

Have you tried any of their products?
