Benefit Cosmetics House Party & Hello Flawless FOTD

My long overdue post on the Benefit Cosmetics House Party I hosted!

We received samples of all 9 shades of Benefit’s new Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Foundation, the new primer The POREfessional and Bad Gal Lash Mascara.

You can see my original post on Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Foundation with swatches of all 9 shades here.

These are the cute little sample bags my friend Dee and I put together (yes, the cardboard box makes for great presentation.. I know).

My lovely friends and I then set about testing the different shades and finding what worked for us. We were all pleased at the light texture of the Hello Flawless foundation and the smooth finish of The POREfessional primer.

We are all such different skin tones, and we all found something that worked for us. Only two of the ladies were the same shade! This is what I love about having such a multicultural group of friends :)

My shade ended up being Toasted Beige.

Mai used Beige with Amber as a contouring shade.

Overall, I really like the texture and finish of Benefit’s Hello Flawless foundation, but it doesn’t give me quite as much coverage as I’m used to with my BB cream. It looks really natural, doesn’t settle into lines and doesn’t dry out or emphasise flaky patches. It literally glides over your skin and leaves it looking smooth, fresh and glowing. I think this is a great product if you are looking for a really natural, light to medium coverage foundation.

We had so much fun trying out all the new products from Benefit! Thank you Benefit and thank you House Party! If you don’t know what House Party is, basically you apply to host a promotional party for a certain brand and if you are chosen to host, you receive samples and/or vouchers towards the brand’s product. Then you host a party and invite all your friends to try it out! It’s loads of fun and I’m soooo happy I got chosen to host the Benefit Cosmetics party :D

Have you tried any of these products from Benefit? Have you ever hosted a House Party?


  1. I love the primer and foundation! I used to be all about Shiseido products, but I like Benefit foundation more since it is so natural. Thank you for hosting the party!

  2. You're welcome! It looks really good on you, it makes you look really glowing and natural.

  3. Ooooh, I love beauty parties. I am currently hosting one with 21 beauty bloggers here in Orlando. That foundation compliments your skin beautifully!

  4. Benefit is Divine!! To bad we do not have any distributor in Sweden :( The perfume Maby baby is on my top three list over perfume!!

  5. Yay! It looks like you guys had so much fun! I've been waiting for this post for ages, you know I'm a Benefit junky! :D
