We were taken through to the VIP suite in Harvey Nichols where the gorgeous Jasmine showed us all a quick presentation on hello flawless. Shortly after the gorgeous Lisa, Benefit's Lead & Trend Make Up Artist showed a product demonstration. She listed all the fabulous benefits of the foundation including that it's quite liquid meaning you can build it up in layers, it contains SPF 25|PA+ and it had a very hygienic pump that allowed you to dispense just the right amount of product. Lisa then showed us all a very cool demonstration on why it's so important to use a make up brush when applying foundation which you can try yourself at home. She took a mirror and applied some foundation directly to it with her fingers, she then did the same with a a brush. Where she had applied with her fingers the foundation was very uneven and looked well, messy, but with the brush there was a clean, fluid mark that was completely even. I've nearly always used a brush purely because I think it gives a more flawless finish and Lisa's little demo most certainly proved this!
Afterwards we were taken to afternoon tea in Harvey Nicks where we enjoyed an absolute feast of delicate profiteroles, macaroons, elegant tea sandwiches all washed down with champagne and tea.
As the foundation itself I really, really like it. I was shade 'I'm pure for sure' the lightest out of the bunch and it really suits my skin. I also like that you can build it up and even use it as a concealed under the eyes. It wears well-ish - I'd say it gets me through about 7 hours in a day without any touch ups. Overall, if I wasn't such a foundation whore I'd probably buy this again when it runs out as I love to chop and change foundations like there's no tomorrow!
