Packaging: 5/5
I Love that this product is in a tube.  It’s super easy to use and travel friendly.  The packaging is fairly simple yet sleek and cute (like all benefit’s products). There is no fuss, no mess with this product.

Overall: 4.5/5

 I definitely would recommend this product if you have visible pores and wrinkles that need to be sort of blurred out. It obviously does not get rid of pores completely, and works best if applied under foundation or powder. The swatches above were only done on bare naked skin, so you can’t really see the greatness of the product. I love how easy it was to use, it didn’t feel greasy or sticky. It didn’t clump up or anything. It also was great for the dry spots on around my nose.  I get about 4-5 hours wear with this product on, which is good considering i’m oily in the t-zone area where I place this and on my cheek area.  It costs a pretty penny but definitely worth the price.  It definitely smoothes out the skin so that you can apply foundation or powder with ease and your face will look flawless afterwards. Can also be used for touchups if needed at the end of a long day! What is also great is that it’s perfect for all skin types and skin tones! So if your not sure about it – definitely give it a try, ask for a sample from your local sephora or ulta – you won’t be sorry!
