    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Some Kind-A Gorgeous:

    I really am enjoying this foundation. The coverage is lovely--not too heavy and not too light. It is a cream to powder product that I apply with a foundation brush for a smooth, flawless finish. It comes with a sponge applicator, however, I only use the sponge for the occasional touch up.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Some Kind-A Gorgeous:

      I love this product! I went in looking for a great compact foundation and this was suggested to me. It matches my skin tone perfectly, is not too thick or "cakey" but still covers well, and my complexion (occasional breakouts from oily skin) has even cleared up since I began using it. I am on my second compact of this product and I rarely use anything else! An occasional dab of concealer and sometimes a bronzer is all I need to add. The only downfall is that I go through it semi fast (it took about a month to go through the first one I bought) and although it's not ridiculously priced it isn't cheap either. But I will continue to buy it, VERY satisfied!

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Some Kind-A Gorgeous:

      I bought this for my 12 year old who has been trying to cover up small patches of acne with horrible liquid foundation that was clogging her pores and did not match her skin color well. This product is easy for her to use and you can't tell she has make up on which was very important in the decision making process.

        So light feeling , you may forget til you get in bed you still are wearing it! I love that it is full coverage and still feels very light wt. I'm a mature woman and have a bit of rosea. It covers my flaws and the sunspots too very well. I feel very young looking because it makes my face look flawless , as when I was young woman . I was delighted with results when the young lady suggested this product for me! I also bought other products by Benefit . Would recommend to my friends without hesitation!

            I love a cream to powder foundation that comes in a compact and it's really hard to find that. I found a winner in this product. It is lightweight and has medium coverage. I like that it just comes in three choices, light, medium, or dark. Simple, but effective.

                  I use benefit to go to work and other special places. I like the way it gives me subtle coverage so my makeup doesn't look over done. It does not wash off easily with regular face wash and tends to leave a greasy feel to the skin. Overall I do like the way it looks on.

                      Hello Flawless provides a more matte finish than this product. Please note that this product's formula is cream-to-powder.
