Benefit Some Kind-a Gorgeous

I’ve often wondered about Some Kind-a Gorgeous and then I won one in a Debenhams competition so I got to try it out for myself. I warn you now, this is not a good review…

It claims to be foundation faker. An oil free cream to powder finish in a sheer shade suitable for most skin tones.

  Firstly, it’s ORANGE. Then when you apply it to your face it’s virtually invisible except for the fact that it clings to every tiny dry bit (even if previously invisible to the naked eye), and so, there’s very little coverage and in fact it looks like there’s nothing there, but then the magic happens… as the day progresses you get lots of little orange patches on your face. Nice, it wears badly and quickly. Reapplication is quick and easy thanks to the little compact, but you use up an incredibly amount of product. The first picture of the open pan up there was after one use… I don’t think it would take much more than five or six uses before you hit pan…it also feels…well oily. The texture is horrible.
Oh I think I should stop this review.. it’s not going anywhere good is it? It’s £23.50 for a miniscule amount and it absolutely sucks. Am mightily pleased I won this and didn’t buy it!
Sorry Benefit, I do love you, honest, but this product is awful!

    for me, what happened was that i started off orange and as the day went on it started to match my own skin tone….but non the less i dont want to look like an umpa lumpa

    🙁 If Im going to spend that much on a product, I do not want to worry about looking orange. Even if it does settle after a bit 🙁 Thanks for saving me £23! xx

    This was my first ever foundation and I’ve still got scrapings left of one (I repurchased it many times) I’m not sure if the formulation has changed but I used to love it and now…not so much x

    I totally agree. I bought this with really high hopes and it sucks big time. No coverage and absolutely zero in the value for money category.

    Funny, I have their tinted moisturiser which claims to suit all skin tones, and it’s orange too!

    But the packaging looks so pretty!!! *sulks* I’ve never tried it but have always lusted after it because it looks so darn purdy. Will give this one a miss now.

    I really appreciate your candor. I hate when I buy awful products, and I’m glad you got this one for free!

    The Benefit lady put this on me today while I was out shopping and I totally see what you’re saying about orange-ness… later on I looked into the mirror and it looked as if it hadn’t been blended properly; orange patches around the sides of my face.

    Will be steering clear of this one, and sticking with PlaySticks 🙂

    I’ve heard a lot of bad things about this one, and it annoys me that Benefit puts it into every other set they release! Benefit people, please realize this sucks and discontinue it! x

    I agree with you on this, it really is very orangey and not as good quality as I’d expect, I think benefit are a bit hit and miss with their products but for the price I’d expect them to be top quality all the time. x

    Huh. Weird. But I love it. 😀
