Benefit How to Look Best at Everything (Lots of Pict!)

Benefit is my new favorite brand, i got some product of them and sooo in love with it!

Benefit How to Look Best at Everything is one of sephora's exclusive product, according to sephora, there's product description :

What it is:
A four-piece flawless complexion makeup kit exclusive to Sephora.

What it does:
Benefit’s custom skin perfectors come together in this convenient kit to give you an even, luminous complexion. Blend away imperfections and minimize the appearance of pores with the must-haves in this collection.

This set contains:
- 0.25 oz The POREfessional
- 0.23 oz Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow SPF 25 PA+++ in "Cheers To Me" Champagne (light kit); "Cute as a Bunny" (medium kit); "I'm Haute for Sure" (deep kit)
- 2 x 0.05 oz BOI-ING in 01 and 02 (light kit); 03 and 04 (medium kit); 04 and 05 (deep kit)
- 0.14 oz "Hello Flawless!" in "Me, Vain?" Champagne (light kit); "I'm so Money!" (medium kit); "I'm so Glamber" (deep kit)

I chose Light kit since i think i would fit using shade champagne (i am about nc/nw 25 in mac, using revlon sand beige, maybelline sand, sleek sand and rimmel true ivory for reference) and yeah it's true!

This kit, as raved by some beauty gurus, are one of best way to try some benefit product in affordable price. I got it for idr 350,000 during sephora 20% sale last august. I know it's a lil bit more expensive than the original price (usd 30) but it's all worth if you count shipping cost from USA *LoL

no, i only got 1 kit :p
the one left is the box and the right one is the kit
behind the box is picture of product inside while behind the kit is looks like book's cover

the insider (♡∀♡)
they also provided a plastic separator with an announcement to remove the tray so we can use the box to keep our treasure ☆▽☆
so nice!
i would try it .. 

i took out the tray and keep the minis inside, lovely!
i do have plan to keep some of my benefit product inside so it's easier to carry them around, but maybe later, after i feel satisfy enough with this kit :D

well, let's see what's inside ..

first, benefit porefessional 

then, benefit oxy wow foundation in cheers to me champage 
i really want to try this since it's launched but it think it's too pricey for me (and i have lots of foundation) so this is really a good way to try it! finally!

third, benefit boing 01 and 02
i love their idea co make it in compact! i dont want the powder fly and make it dirt..
also it can be carry alone without palette or kit

here's back side of boing
i found it funny to see how pans glued into a compact (゚ε゚ )

and it's the last one, hello flawless in "me, vain?" champagne
i wasn't expect it would be my favorite product in kit, it gives low to medium coverage, doesn't break me out and match my skintone very very well.

wanna see how it works on me? (:

my bare face
please ignore my red eye, i took this picture right after i washing my hair
 .. and no, no full face, i got a looot of breakout from last week :(

here's my full size porefesional
i'm not using the one in kit since i have this one :)

it does help smoothen my skin and makes my pores less visible, but i think i have another primer works better than this one :(

then add foundation, but before it let's see how it's on my hand ..

after blended,
product is on left side of the marks, but still, it's hard to find since it's match my skintone too well

and here's how it's look on my face ..

yeah, my skin but better!
so sorry for blur picture, i didn't notice it before :(

third, the concealer ..
i use either 01 or 02 alone or mixed them together.
(that's sonia kashuk's concealer brush from pink cancer brush set if you want to know :p)

well, it's doesn't works really good on my acne scar. On some of them yes, but in most of them, no.
i put high expectation on this but .. i have to say my journey to find perfect concealer for me is still on ..

then the powder ..

i found for the first time, a benefit brush that really works!
it could take the powder well and won't hurt my skin, good job, benefit!

and no, i took no picture of the powder on my face since it's not noticable, my face is looks the same as after i use boing ( ・_・)
maybe it's just because of my camera?

oh yea, it does have a mirror!
just take the tips and tricks paper and you could find the mirror
otherwise, you can cut the paper and get the mirror

now into swatches ..

 what i love about it ..

porefessional : does smoothen my skin, makes it easier to glide the foundation, provided matte finish and add few coverage
oxy wow # cheers to me champagne : my skin but better foundation, no white cast, buildable coverage, doesn't cause breakout, medium to full coverage and the pump is just great!
boing 01 and 02 : good staying power, compact packaging
hello flawless "me, vain?" champagne : medium to full coverage, no whitecast, match my skin very very well
great value!
brush thats works!
it does have mirror inside
i love how we can reuse the box ❤ 

what i don't like about it ..

overrated porefessional, don't use it if you avoid silicone based product
i found oxy wow foundation faded after 5-6 hours (revlon colorstay faded after 7-8 hours)
oxy wow doesn't get SPF
boing can't help with some of my acne scar :(
hellow flawless powder in this kit isn't in travel friendly side
hard to find in my country (oh well, what's not?)

overall, i would repurchase again if i can't find anything to get on sephora sale (ノ´∀`*)ノ

thanks for reading,
