Review: Benefit Some Kind-a-Gorgeous

Today I will be reviewing benefit's some kind-a gorgeous. It's a foundation faker that's cream to powder. I got this size from one of the benefit's sample boxes. It's in the shade medium.

Isn't the packaging so cute! It just draws me in.

This size doesn't have a mirror on the inside. I've hit pan! :)

This product is a true cream to powder formula. It's very creamy in the container and even on my fingertips as you can see in this picture.

However, as soon as you put it on your skin, it changes to a powder formula and disappears into the skin. I find that so cool!

Things I like:
-The wet to dry formula
-The cute packaging 

Things I don't like:
- The smell of the foundation- It smells like old makeup that's expired, I know mine hasn't because I bought it about 6 months ago from Sephora
-The lack of shade selection- you can see that the shade doesn't really match my hand because I've tanned during the summer

Foundation Ratings
Shade: 6/10
Coverage: 8/10
Longevity: 8/10
Finish: 5/5
Value: 3/5

Overall: 30/40 
Bonus: Smell is a big factor in this overall rating.

Rating: C
It has a medium coverage and is a good foundation. However, the strong smell and the fact that the foundation only has three color choices put me off. I would not repurchase. I'm glad I only got the small size.

Do you guys like this style of review more? I'm trying to put more pictures and less words! :)
Anybody a fan of cream to powder finishes?


  1. I almost grabbed this instead of the erase paste! I kind of wish I had!


  2. I totally agree with you, mine smelt gross from the day I bought it (I thought it was just me!), and it's way too dark for my skin tone :( disappointed.

  3. I like that it dries to a powder finish. I can't stand when things stay greasy!
