I haven't really tried anything from Benefit cosmetics before so this was the perfect chance for me to get to know the brand. As usual, prior to purchasing the product, I Googled for reviews about it and everything I saw online gave me the green signal. So I didn't really feel any hesitation when I placed my bid for this product on eBay.
Anyway, below's a summary of Benefit Matterial Girl's Pros & Cons, at least after about a month of using it on me and on clients.
- Must love the packaging! I totally dig pink girly packaging. I know I'm the "all-black" type of person, but this powder really stands out inside my train case filled mostly with cosmetics in black packaging.

- The powder was silky and applies flawlessly. Just be careful on the amount of product you use as if used in exCess it shows a white cast on photos. But if blended thoroughly (I love using SIGMA's F80 brush for buffing this out), it evens out the face.

- Best of all, it mattifies the skin for quite a long time
- Well, the only thing I could think about is its being unavailable locally...Boo!
