Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Foundation Review

April 11, 2012

Trying to find a foundation that is almost tailored to your skin can be a challenge to find. Be wowed with Benefit's new hello flawless oxygen wow! liquid foundation. This is a light weight, oil-free brightening foundation that builds from light to medium coverage. I ended up buying shade "Cheers to Me" Champagne. I don't like foundation to be heavy or thick in consistency, so I thought this would be a good foundation for my needs and what I was looking for.

  • broad-spectrum SPF 25 PA+++ protection**
  • oil-free formula
  • natural finish
  • hydrating benefits
  • light-diffusing properties
  • available in 9 shades 
 Now, please remember that foundation is different for everyone and their skin type. My skin type is normal to dry and with some redness on my cheeks and around my nose. I have no problem areas or scaring of any kind. I mostly need a foundation to just even out my skin tone and cover up my redness. With this foundation being light weight, it makes it easy to blend and feel like skin once applied. I really like the yellowish undertone that it has that creates the "brightening effect". Most other foundations will make my dry patchy areas on my face even more dry as the day goes on. I definitely feel that it is hydrating my skin more than any other foundation that I have used prior.
The fact that this has SPF 25 is a major major plus! Perfect for those hot days where I need extra protection more than my sunscreen.I definitely recommend this foundation, you can't keep it away from me! If you want to try it before buying, always ask at your Sephora for a sample to see how well it would be for you. Like I said before, foundation is different for everyone, so you would need to try it out for yourself.
You can buy hello flawless oxygen wow! at Sephora, Ulta, and on the Benefit website, retails for $34.

 Your thoughts on this new foundation? let me know!

  1. It sounds great! I'm not sure that I can part from my Rimmel Clean Finish for it, but I may check it out! :) Thank you for the review!

  2. I wish you would have told us what shade you are in MAC and then what shade you picked up in the Benefit, as well as shown us a picture of before foundation/after.. this doesn't really give us any idea about the product at all. 

  3. Sorry about that. I don't know what shade I am in MAC, I've never used their foundations. I will fix the post with the shade I bought and before and after photos. Thank you your comment! :)

  4.  You're welcome! Thanks for commenting! :)

  5. Love this foundation! I love the liquid like consistency of it. I hate a heavy foundation. This feels like nothing at all when I wear it. I also like that the shade for me had a more yellow undertone. That really helps cover the redness on my cheeks. 
    Great review!
