Happy Friday, Beauties!
Well, my Benefit House Party got postponed due to illness (it’s the dreaded spring cold season!), so I wont be posting about til next month. I do, however, have all 9 shades of the new Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Brightening Makeup Foundation.
From the Benefit Website:
hello flawless oxygen wow!
The formula is the same on all of them, so I’ll talk about it here to save repeating myself.
It is a light, liquid foundation which is quite smooth and spreadable – this means it’s a bit runny, so be careful when dispensing it. It applies smoothly over the skin and dries to a soft powder-like finish. The foundation feels lightweight and breathable, definitely feels more natural and not heavy at all. A little goes a long way, so the tube will probably last you quite a while, even using it every day. I’d say 1 pump would be enough for your full face. It is perfumed, but I am usually sensitive to strong scents and this one didn’t bother me too much. Once it dries, the scent fades a bit as well.
I will be testing the coverage and longevity over the next week, so I’ll post a FOTD and let you know my thoughts then :)
I think my shade is PETAL, it’s a warmer toned light beige. The colour stickers on the box are a bit darker than the actual shades swatched, I think the colour of the foundation in the tube is more accurate.
L-R: “I’m pure 4 sure” IVORY, “I’m plush & precious” PETAL, “cheers to me” CHAMPAGNE, “I’m so money” HONEY
L-R: IVORY, PETAL
L-R: CHAMPAGNE, HONEY
L – R: “I’m all the rage” BEIGE, “warm me up” TOASTED BEIGE, “I’m hopelessly hot” HAZELNUT, “I’m so glamber” AMBER, “gotta know me” NUTMEG
L – R: BEIGE, TOASTED BEIGE
L-R: HAZELNUT, AMBER, NUTMEG
I really like the finish of this foundation, I’m eager to try it out for a longer period and see if it can replace my BB cream as my go-to foundation. We’ll see!
I think they did pretty well with the range of shades, I think they need to introduce shades for the very dark skinned ladies at some point though. The darkest shade is still quite a light, milk chocolatey brown.
Have you tried Benefit foundations before?
They also have Hello Flawless powder which can be used in conjunction with this liquid foundation, I might just have to try one out!
