I think Dr Feelgood is utterly utterly uncessecary. Of course I dont see the customers when they go home but that kind of texture CANNOT be good for the skin.
Why do you think, Dr.Feelgood is bad for the skin? I use it for my t-zone and it controlls the shine for hours like no other product did before.But if it's bad for the skin...

I am a sucker for the packaging but to be honest I end up putting anything I buy from Benefit in the bin.

Feelgood will block pores -simple as.

and in reply to realful, they try and sell You Rebel tinted moisturiser to everybody but pale people just CANNOT wear it. If you are tanned you can get away with it even if you are english complexioned. But pale -no way.

And some tubes go orange. Take it back to the store.

Oh and badgirlash is awful too because it just flakes off and you end up with panda eyes. You would be better off getting a regular mascara from say Bourjois or Maybelline and layering it to the max.

I've heard so many rave reviews about the "miraculous" Dr. Feelgood and I was tempted to buy it. This makes sense though. I've always felt that those mattifying products for the T-zone actually blocks the pores. Ah ... so much for miracles!

I really need something to even out my skin tone. I tend to get some splotchy redness and spots now and then which is very apparent on my fair skin. Any recommendations?

I love benefit. Last night I used jiffy tan I forgot how much I love it. It is the perfect tan colour it's just a shame it washes off. It looks so much better than my usual fake tan! Also I would not like to be without high beam and bad gal eyeliner.

I guess I will post because I use and love a few of their things. I'm kind of a whore with brands though... I mean I am not loyal to any one brand but as far as Benefit goes, I love:

Boing concealer in light. I've used it for years. It covers well and smoothly for undereye and pimples equally well. I use either a brush or my finger. Both work.

creaseless cream shadow in "r.s.v.p." and "birthday suit" Both great shimmery sheer light neutrals for everyday. They go on so smooth and can be layered for a stronger look at night. COmes in bolder colors but I stick with pale neutrals. Better investment. ANd they don't crease, it's true!

Moonbeam highlighter. My skin looks amazing when I use a tiny dot at the inner corners of my eyes, on the brow bone, and between the undereye and cheek bones and blend it. Just a great healthy glow, not too shimmery. Fantastic!

Recently tried but I think I'm newly addicted to using:

That Gal primer/prep. I love the light moist smoothness. It feels whipped it's so light and it comes out only a little at a time so I know I'm not wasting it. ANd it does give a smooth finish. Now if only it had SPF too...
Some Kinda Gorgeous cream to powder compact. Great coverage. Can be sheer or medium depending on application. Very soft and smooth, even easy application, creamy but does not induce breakouts. My skin feels so soft with it! ALso, I have fair skin and it comes in one color so when the girl showed it to me I was like "hell no that's way too dark" but it's like magic because it blends and is honestly the right color for even fair skintones! Once again though...I wish it had SPF. Then I could skip a step.

I also like Bad Gal mascara in Blue. I think it's basically like the same formula and brush style as Diorshow but doesn't dry out as uickly. I still love Diorshow though .

I always use their eyesketching pencil in onyx. I think it's a great liner that last a long time without giving you raccoon eyes at the end of the night.

missakura, I really hate when they discontinue products that I love; are you talking about the Benetint?

Benefit was the first brand of makeup that I bought on my own, I got Daily Hylaronic Moisturizer (which was awful) and my dearly beloved Alpha Clean. That Alpha Clean was incredible, mud and Aha did my skin wonders. I wish they would bring it back. They revamped the brand a few years ago and a bunch of products didn't make the cut, sad.

Has anyone used She Laq with either the mascara or lip brushes it comes with? It works wonders on my liner, but I'm afraid it might dry out my lips.
