How to Look the Best at Everything!

Benefit have recently launched a few new kits including the wonderful How to Look the Best At Everything
which truly does contain everything you need to create the perfect base not only at home but on the go too
with an entire slew of facial products all in mini travel friendly sizes contained within the cutest faux book
packaging - the kit comes in three shade families: light, medium and dark.

So what is in this dinky little kit?
- a 7.5ml mini tube of the Porefessional
- a 7ml bottle of Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation (shade depending on kit)
- two shades of Boi-ing Concealer (again various shades in the three kits)
- Hello Flawless Pressed Powder

I have been using Benefit's Porefessional for a good two years now and find it to be the best product
for disguising my unsightly pores and keeping oil at bay, not to mention it provides a velvet smooth
finish that is great for applying any base on top of.
This does contain silicone and some have reported break outs from using this product,
this hasn't been the case for me but if new to the product test on a small area of the face for a week
or so before to see how your skin fairs.

I am a huge fan of Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation and find it to provide a really great base
and wears well even on my oily skin, I deem it to be a moderate level of coverage foundation
and feel some areas particularly if you are blemish prone like myself may need a little dab of
concealer here and there but all in all a wonderful base.

Boi-ing is one of the products that I forget how great it is until I stumble across a pan,
despite being a cream based concealer this is not heavy in the slightest and covers both blemishes
and under eye circles without caking or settling into the pores or fine lines.
The great thing about this kit is that you have two shades which you can blend together to form your 
perfect shade or do what I do, use the lightest shade for the eyes and the other for blemishes.

Last but not least is the addition of Hello Flawless Pressed Powder which will help to keep your
base in place and oil at bay throughout the day but as it is quite a high coverage pressed powder
you can wear it on its own for those rare in my case good skin days.
The powder also comes with it's own little brush which is pretty minuscule but more than does the 
job when presented with a shiny patch of skin (t-zone i'm looking at you!).

So not only do you get all the above products presented in a sweet almost twee fashion 
but also a good sized mirror and a great how to kit full of tricks and beauty secrets.
In my opinion this is the prefect face kit for travelling as it contains all you need and more
to achieve flawless skin and with Christmas on it's merry way it would make the perfect gift.
