Pros

  • Covers Skin Well

Cons

  • Leaves Greasy Feeling

Best Uses

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Some Kind-A Gorgeous:

    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.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Some Kind-A Gorgeous:

        I just bought this tonight and I LOVE it already. I went into Ulta with the intent of buying a pencil to fill in my eyebrows. However, I saw this foundation on the Benefit display table and it looked so smooth and close to my skin color (which I would say is between a medium and deep, a shade hard to match) and had to try it on. I don't usually wear foundation, especially nothing creamy because I hate for my skin to look too oily, but once I put this on, I fell in love. It looks completely natural which is the biggest concern I had trying it on, and doesn't make my skin look oily or buried in makeup at all. I play basketball in college and have no time to worry about dabbing on too little or too much since I run on such a tight schedule. In case anyone is wondering, I plan to use this in conjunction with Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in the shade "Peach Beach" :) Two thumbs up to this foundation.

          This product blends so easily and is one of the best matches for fair skin. I use a brush so not to over apply. I feel this best suits people with drier skin.

              I like the others, wanted to like this product. Who wouldnt? Its so cute! But it does nothing for me. It is very light, almost like a tinted moisturizer with no moisture! Its pricey and not worth you money! I could have bought 3 of foundations with way better quality from any corner drug store!

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Some Kind-A Gorgeous:

              I loved this product for the first few days, but then it started to completely dry out my skin. The coverage and color were great, but it actually made my skin flake around my eyes and mouth. My mom bought some at the same time and has loved it, so it may just not work for those of us with sensitive/dry skin to begin with.

                I use this product almost every day that I am not dressing up. It's my favorite thing to throw on to cover all my freckles and imperfections without having to do a whole face work up. I love it!! So many people ask me what I use when I am wear it. That's how good it is.

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