"How to look the best at everything" 
"Laughter is the best cosmetic, so grin & wear it!" - Jean & Jane Ford, co-founders
Featuring the Benefit's San Francisco Flawless Complexion Kit which makes it into LIVIA HQ for further testing and trialling. I am so excited to share with you all on this amazing complexion kit by Benefit Cosmetics. Firstly, I was amazed by the packaging itself as it's presented in a book form which actually opens up to the Complexion Kit featuring a four piece gorgeous set that aim to make your complexion look simply, flawless. So if you're a bookworm and beauty lover, you're so going to fall in love with this kit just like myself. 

I'll be walking you through each products in this complexion kit so be sure to simply scroll down to check out what each product can do for your skin and whether it helps to conceal or not. For Aussies out there, you can be sure to find Benefit Cosmetics at your nearest Myer counter. If you're wanting to find it online, click HERE to check out the MYER store for the latest stock. 

What I love about this flawless complexion kit is that all of my favourite skin perfectors come together to give you a basic spread of products so that you can create your own luminous complexion. Ever wondered how you can get that flawless, hollywood look to your skin? With Benefit's help of their Flawless Complexion Kits, you are sorted for sure. All you have to do with the products in the kit is to blend thoroughly to hide any imperfections and also help to minimise the appearance of large visible pores on the skin. 

Contained in this kit we have: 
  • BENEFIT'S The POREfessional which is basically a pro balm that looks to minimize the appearance of large and visible pores on your skin. 
  • BENEFIT'S Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Liquid Foundation, which basically gives a very luminous base to your skin. 
  • BENEFIT'S 2 x Boi-ing Concealers, used to cover up any imperfection. 
  • BENEFIT'S Hello Flawless! Custom Powder Cover up, which in a way assists in helping you to create a flawless finish. 
  • The kit is available in three shades: Light, Medium and Dark. 
  • Not only is this an adorable make-up book of flawless products for your skin, but did you know it includes a handy mirror in the book too? (It's convenient for travelling purposes and so practical to use whenever you are on the go.) Another interesting element I found about the book itself is that it shuts with a magnetic strip to the edge which is also convenient because the products stay in place and will not fall out. (Score!) 
  • Lastly, inside the book there's instructional tips and trick cards for the true inside scoop of how to apply these products in order to achieve a flawless and perfect finish. This is exceptionally handy to those who are new to creating a flawless look and it's super easy to follow through. (If I could follow through, then you can too!) 

I would also say that this is definitely ideal for those who are curious in the beauty world and are keen to try the new products from the Benefit range. You get the opportunity here to trial the top products in miniature size and see if it would really work for your skin. It's an amazing starter kit and I would definitely recommend those who are new to the beauty world to try this complexion kit out. The products are quite decent sized as in they're not too small which is good because you get a few months use out of it. 

And...I'm not even finished! To hear more into detail of each product scroll down and enjoy the read x


"How to look the best at everything" featuring Benefit's Flawless Complexion Kit.

Student Tip #1 You can so get away with "studying" by just holding this in your hands! 

Featuring an amazing four-piece product kit that aims to give you that flawless and smooth complexion. 


Featuring a PRO balm that looks to minimise the appearance of your pores. 

  1. What you want to do here is apply a little of the Porefessional PRO balm to moisturised skin so that you can look to minimise the appearance of the pores on your skin. For myself, I tend to have visible pores around my cheeks and nose which stands out if I don't put something like the Porefessional on. This is also looks to minimise the appearance of fine lines around your face so this is perfect as the first step in helping you to create that look. 
  2. If you find that after using this on the T-section of your face, pat more of the PRO balm on really lightly over your make-up and blend, blend blend! 
I love this PoreFessional product by Benefit Cosmetics because it makes an amazing primer for my make-up. It does not feel oily at all so I really like how it "hides" my pores. This product is also lightweight to use which means that it does not even feel heavy on the skin; and this is so ideal if you plan to have a long day out in the city or out to a special occasion. 

This is literally like a magic in a tube which looks to erase any imperfections on your skin. Whether it's large pores, fine lines or discolouration, this product can really look like a porcelain doll. I would highly recommend this product as an alternative primer to use because it works amazingly. 


Featuring a brightening, oil-free liquid foundation that builds from light to medium coverage with a broad spectrum SPF25+ protection. 

  1. How you want to use this is to apply to the center of your face and blend up and out to avoid those make-up lines. 
If you're wanting a very luminous glow and at the same time to achieve a good, hydrated skin then this may be the foundation for you. It's not too heavy and it's quite natural finishing for a foundation. One interesting aspect to this product is that you can really look to build coverage from light to medium which is ideal because when you're wanting to switch skin colours, you can simply opt for this foundation. 

The foundation also features a light-diffusing properties and hydrating benefits for your skin. When I had the Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation on, I could really feel my skin becoming hydrated and at the same time looking very flawless and well covered. It's not too heavy or does not feel cakey which is amazing to consider about this product. Its nourishing formula contains Benefit's exclusive Oxygen Wow Hydrating Complex - which helps to boost cellular respiration for a plumping-up effect. This product also looks to protect against environmental stresses and what's more is that it contains Vitamin C and E which is known to fight ageing to your skin. Can you imagine a product that looks to cover your skin's imperfections along to protect it from ageing? (Amazing right?) 

Also, this product has been made without using any parabens which makes this product very safe and gentle to use. I love how this product provides my skin with a broad spectrum protection against the harsh UV rays which means that I can ensure that my skin feels protected on a daily basis. There's no fragrance to to using this product which is good because when you have foundation on your skin everyday, you don't want it smelling too strong or unbearable. The final finish to the foundation looked very 'matte' which I really loved because it looked very natural.

Featuring an industrial strength concealer that camouflages dark circles, shadows and discolouration for a natural looking finish without creasing. 

  1. Look to blend both shades to create your own exact custom match to your skin colour. They have provided two options which give you more options on experimenting on what works and does not. 
  2. Dab the Boi-ing shades over the dark under-eye circles and over any imperfections. 
This is the perfect heavy duty type of concealer for those that need to conceal under the eyes. I have really visible dark circles and this can be due to many factors such as lack of sleep, genetic or allergies. I love how thick and creamy this concealer is and the best thing about the Boi-ing is that it really looks to conceal my dark circles. It hides my freckles really well too and they are usually quite obvious without any concealer on. Before you use the concealer, make sure to rub it together to really warm the product. Then you'd apply using small amounts under the eye areas.

Overall, the finish is very natural looking and there's no creasing or fading of it. It is also recommended to use this concealer with your fingertips only and by only using a dabbing process. This product certainly provides good coverage to concealing dark circles and making my eyes look less tired. I am definitely satisfied with the Boi-ing and I will consider to repurchase the product the next time I run out. 

 The Complexion kit comes with cute, handy travel-sized brush for the powder. 


Featuring Benefit's silky powder foundation called "Hello Flawless" that also comes with SPF15. The foundation really gives a natural looking sheer to your overall makeup look. The foundation is build-able as well if you're also in the market for a customised coverage product. 

The shade in "I'm Cute As A Bunny" is more of a natural honey tone which is ideal for more beige complexions. It looks to eliminate red or patchy areas of your skin after applying the concealer and this definitely looks to give you an overall flawless complexion. 

  1. If you're wanting more of a sheer finish, sweep the foundation on the with brush. 
  2. Look to blend from the center of you face going outwards using quick and light strokes. 
  3. If you are wanting to achieve more of a full coverage, apply evenly over the face using a sponge such as the Beauty Blender. 
  4. To conceal or cover certain spots, dab on the sponge and blend right through.

This calls for a well deserved selfie below! 


As you can see, my skin is looking so flawless and definitely concealed. You can hardly see any dark circles! (Score!)
