Benefit Hello Flawless V Essence Stay All Day


I am always on the market for a new foundation especially an affordable one. When I heard that the Essence Stay All Day is a dupe for the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup, I had to see for myself if its true. In this review I will be comparing all aspects of the makeup from the packaging right down to the ingredients.


Benefit Hello Flawless –

This foundation is very light weight, it has a low to medium coverage. It is build-able so you can add more layers to get your desired coverage.

Essence Stay All Day –

This foundation is medium coverage, more than the Hello Flawless. You can also build this foundation to achieve a full coverage look.


Benefit Hello Flawless –

I think this foundation has dewy finish especially on my skin. It sits so well on my skin, it does’t cake up or settle in my fine lines. It is long lasting.

Essence Stay All Day –

It has a semi – matte finish with a hint of dewiness after a couple of hours. I think this foundation feels the very same on my face as the Hello Flawless.  It is long lasting.

The ingredients are quite different but the foundations are very similar.


The packaging for these foundations are so similar, there are only tiny differences. They are basically the same height, same weight. The only thing thats different is the pump. I prefer the pump on the hello flawless foundation.


Overall I am amazed that these two foundations ARE so similar. I do believe that the Essence foundations is a dupe. The only thing I can say I don’t like about the Essence foundation is that they only have 4 shades and none of them actually match my skin tone.

I think if you are looking for a foundation that will last all night but don’t want to spend €37 then you should get the Essence  Stay All Day because they are the same.
