Review: Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation Oxygen Wow!

benefit hello flawless foundation hello flawless champagne foundation benefit foundation swatch hello flawless champagne cheers to me swatch

Firstly apologies for not showing what Hello Flawless looks like on my face, at the moment I'm too hideous in the mornings to be broadcasting myself online and as soon as I get home the makeup comes off and the onesie comes on....I blame the cold weather.
Anyway I was uhhming and ahhing about purchasing this for a while, as Benefit describe Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow as "A light to medium coverage for a natural complexion you can believe in" where as others have advised it's a little too light and a little too liquidy (if that's even a word). It was Gillian's blog post and a cheeky little lookfantastic voucher that eventually convinced me I had to own it.
The foundation itself is indeed quite light as people advised, however it's easily buildable with both fingertips and a brush for a fresh but still quite flawless look. I've been using the Real Techniques Stippling brush with this foundation and it works a treat, I have skin I'm happy within a minute of pushing down the pump! I'll be honest and say I'm not too sure what skin type this is aimed at, I have normal to dry skin and it seems to work fine for me and doesn't cling to any patches, but I've read opposing reviews from those with oily skin - some say it's a godsend, some not so much. But as I said I'm a dry Delilah so I can't comment. Another bonus definitely worth a mention is that the foundation is SPF 25 PA *** which apparently means the best type of protection out there, a win for me as I'm not getting any younger!
Despite the packaging not going down the usual kitsch Benefit route, I'm actually really impressed with the sleek bottle, the simple design, and the easy to use pump. I use two pumps daily and set it with a bit of Hello Flawless powder and I'm set for the day.
Overall I'm really impressed with this, I love a dewey and sheer finish so thought I'd be a fan anyway but it just. seems. right. If I could fall in love with a product this would be it. Although I say that a lot so It'd probably be one of those creepy polyamorous relationships. The only slight downside is the price, at £24.50 it's not a cheap date but in my (now zombified) eyes it's worth it.

  6. Benefit products are always really good quality but it comes at a heavy price tag. I am contemplating on getting this to try because i want a more dewy moisturising foundation for the winter and this sounds quite good. I have oily skin though so i am a bit worried that this will make me look like a grease ball in no time. Its great that it works for you though and thank you so much for this review~ It was really helpful and interesting

  13. I don't know if I like it, it's such a yellowy finish, I'd be scared it looked too caked

  15. I have been umming and ahhing over this one too, the price doesnt bother me as I own a few pricey foundations but I like a full coverage but it could be a potential for my makeup kit as some of my brides dont like a heavy finish. its a pitty you cant get samples from Benefit :(
