Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Some Kind-A Gorgeous:

I was hoping for something that would work for me. However this isn't it. I have good skin, no breakouts and no fine lines (yet) I do have a little unevenness and was hoping this would even out that. I cant seem to figure out the best way to apply this so that I am not using a TON and still getting the coverage I want. I have tried the enclosed sponge, a stipple brush, my fingers you name it. It doesn't seem to apply even no matter what I use. I do have dry skin so maybe that's why it wont apply evenly? I don't know but for the price I wouldn't buy it again unless I can find the right way to apply it.

        I have not worn foundation or anything similar for years, but felt it was time to get something that would even out my skin tone without being heavy. I love this product! It's easy to apply and has great coverage without being cakey! It was exactly what I was looking for. I'm usually not keen on paying a lot of money for cosmetics, but this one is worth it!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Some Kind-A Gorgeous:

          I REALLY wanted to like this foundation but the second I put it on, rather than offer any coverage it settled into every single crevice on my face. The product stuck to any dry skin and highlighted everything I was looking to cover. Very disappointing.

            I tried a sample size of this foundation and immediately purchased the full size! It feels SO SMOOTH on my skin and I love the coverage... does not cake on but seems to even out the tones nicely.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Some Kind-A Gorgeous:

              I love the silky texture of this stuff but it doesn't cover much and takes a lot to do anything so it runs out super quickly. Not my favorite.

                the sponge that comes with the foundation is too thin. i doubt it's going to last long. Coverage was not enough for me. I had to apply at least three layers and still won't cover my blemishes. I love the design of it though.

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