After thoroughly loving the Boi-ing Industrial-Strength Concealer, I thought I’d try more Benefit face products. And wanting to find a sheer-to-medium coverage foundation, Benefit’s How to Look the Best at Everything was right up my alley.
I got the kit in Medium and was a little worried it would be too light for me. I’m still sporting a summer tan and am 1-2 shades darker than during the cooler months. The Medium kit includes miniatures of:
Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation in “I’m So Money” Honey
Boi-ing Concealer in 02 and 03 ***the Sephora website says 03 and 04 which is incorrect***
Hello Flawless Powder in “I’m Cute as a Bunny” Honey
I’m impressed with this kit from start to finish. As I suspected, the foundation is a touch light on me, but is passable because it is sheer-to-medium coverage. After I set with powder and contour with a little bronzer, the lightness isn’t noticeable. I like the foundation enough that I went back for a sample in the next darkest shade (“I’m All the Rage” Beige) but it was shockingly dark.
The pore filler does a great job of smoothing out the skin along my nose and inner cheeks. The foundation is very lightweight yet gives me coverage that I love. It also has SPF 25 PA+++ protection, but doesn’t leave me oilier than a non-SPF foundation. This is a huge bonus for my oily T-zone. I prefer mixing the two concealer shades for my undereyes and applying in a triangular shape before using foundation. Then I go back with shade 03 on any remaining blemishes or imperfections. The biggest surprise in this kit is the powder. I’m absolutely in love with its finish. I did take a look at it in store and I’m disappointed in the packaging, however I love the powder itself so much that I might bring a compact home one day.
The entire set makes a flawless face and I’m extremely pleased with the results. I’m trying to work with my skin to stop using a mattifier and I’ve had great results with Benefit’s face products.

One added perk to the kit is the pump bottle for the foundation. It dispenses perfectly, is clear to see how much product is left, and raises from the bottom as foundation is dispensed meaning very little will be wasted when the bottle is empty.
While I already owned the POREfessional and Boi-ing, I am likely to buy both remaning products from this kit. Call me impressed!
