To think I was just bragging to you how my skin is bulletproof but wanna know one thing that makes me break out like a teenager? Freaking Benefit Dr. Feelgood!
The cute packaging slays me but man oh man this stuff breaks me out something fierce. I have no idea what causes the problem but damn straight I get a face full of pimples whenever I attempt trying it out.
Shills Miss Perfect Pores Hide recently captured my attention. Knowing how bad Dr. FeelGood is for my skin didn’t really stop me from wanting to try this out regardless. It’s the packaging, the damn packaging does me in every single time.
I KNEW that it probably wouldn’t be a smart idea to try out Shills Miss Perfect but I decided what the heck. Honestly, Shills continues to make me giggle with their dupes of Benefit product. Truly the packaging, the general feel, and the entire idea behind certain products is so very Benefit in style.
Shills Miss Perfect is basically the same concept as Benefit Dr FeelGood. Housed in a cute tin featuring a cute smiling pin up girl I just couldn’t resist indulging.
Turns out it doesn’t make me break out! Praise Jebus!
Fact of the matter is I don’t have large pores so it is somewhat pointless. The idea of the product is it’s a soothing balm applied prior to makeup to fill larger pores and to mattify skin. The formula is a hard balm but it applies silky with a sponge applicator. It smooths on skin creating a smooth, even layer to skin so foundation goes on evenly and blends seamlessly. I actually quite like it as a primer prior to using foundation as it seems to make my foundation last longer and also allows it to smooth on easier.
The apply you simply swipe your sponge onto the balm and smooth onto face, simple, easy, mess-free application. It doesn’t mattify my skin all that well and I do find it will pill a fair bit if my skin is overly dry so dry skin users beware.
Overall, if you’re looking for a base product to fill pores or to create a good working, even canvas for foundation I’d give Shills Miss Perfect Pores Hide a try! It’s a Taiwanese product unavailable in the US but I’ve had the pleasure of seeing it on E-bay for around $9.99 (original retail is around $5 or less).
Anyone a Shills fan?
Do share as I’m a total convert of the line!
