I've always loved Benefit products and have been umm-ing and ahh-ing about picking up this foundation ever since it was launched almost a year ago. But have always hesitated because I always feel more comfortable with full coverage and matte finish foundation (joys of dealing acne scars, redness and combination skin!) and the Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation is the complete opposite of what I like and what I am use to ... but surprisingly, I am loving this foundation! It has easily become my new everyday foundation
The Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation is described as an "oil free brightening liquid foundation that builds from light to medium coverage for a natural complexion." Other goodies include:
- SPF 25 PA +++
- oil-free formula
- natural finish
- hydrating benefits
- light diffusing properties
- available in 9 shades
The Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation has a watery formula and has light-weight natural finish. I use about a pump and a half and this provides me with medium coverage. It's a very hydrating foundation and almost feels like a moisturiser! However, because it is so hydrating, I would not recommend this foundation for super oily skin. I have combination skin, with shine around the t-zone and MUST use this with a matte powder and touch ups through out the day. But, because I love the medium coverage and light-weight texture so much, I am willing to work with it. In the past, Benefit has been quite limited with its range of foundations shades but I think Benefit has come a long way, now offering 9 shades - I am in honey (I'm so money) but I could have also opted between a mix of honey and/or beige (I'm all the rage) - for reference, honey is just a touch lighter than NC30. I love the packaging, it comes in a light travel-friendly bottle, which is a nice change from the bulky jars, and I am super impressed by the precision of the pump, it allows me to control down to a tee how much, or how little, of the product I want to dispense. Sounds silly, but it's a winning feature and is hands-down best foundation pumps I've ever used.
I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to try this product!
Would love to know, is there a product you've held off purchasing for a very long time - but once you tried it, ended up loving it?
Lots of love
