I received this in a Benefit gift set for Christmas last year, I always wanted to try a cream to powder foundation, and luckily it was in my shade. First off the packaging is so cute, Benefit always has the cutest packaging. At first I was hesitant to try it on my whole face, I never really used foundation before and I didn't wanna put it on wrong or put too much so I started off with little blemishes on my face and the foundation covered them up pretty good, I was impressed because I had read bad reviews prior to trying this. It blends in with my skin, it didnt even look like I had anything on, it stayed on most of the day without a primer. After a while I tried using it on more of my face, like the way you would with a foundation and I felt like it didnt take to certain parts of my skin the right way, my tzone and forehead started to get a cracking effect to it, so I guess that was the end of that. I still use it on smaller spots, i guess it depends on your skin type.
