BENEFIT HELLO FLAWLESS OXYGEN WOW FOUNDATION



 
Good morning!

How are you today?

I am suffering with a very annoying hay fever, God my eyes are on flame!

Today I would like to talk to you about the new foundation from benefit: meet hello flawless oxygen wow foundation.


As I told you here  I was kindly given this product to try during the roadshow (ahhhh those cakes...) and I have been using it since, so to give you a good review about it.

First of all  thank you Benefit for giving us all these shades!


In fact you will not find any problem to get a good match for your skin with the 9 available colours.

You will find 3 shades for light complex, 3 shades for medium and 3 for deep skin tone.

When you buy a foundation always remember to try to match it on your chin. The jaw line can have some shadowing so you can end up buying the wrong shade. (to me, it happens every single time).

The foundation comes in a plastic bottle with a very practical and hygiene - friendly pump.

I should have plumping effect on the skin, anti ageing components like vitamin C & A and peptides and last but not least, it’s oil free.

One of the thing I like most of this foundation is the SPF 25 that protects your skin from UV A and UV B .I am constantly exfoliating my skin, I use regular peeling agents so for me a SPF is a life saver.

As advised by Lisa, I have been using a foundation brush to apply it (mac 187, real techniques foundation brush) and this works pretty well.

The texture is nice and soft, glides on without creating patches or adsorbing too quickly.

When I want to get more coverage ( read: when I need to cover all the spots caused by nutella overdose) I can easily use this foundation because it's so buildable it won't give you that horrible cakey effect.


This oxygen wow plus my setting powder (urban decay razor sharp at the moment) gives me a flawless complexion that lasts pretty well, about 7 hours without fading or creasing.

Here are some pictures with the before and after the applicatione of the product.

The colour Lisa choose for me it's beige- I'm all the rage and suits me perfectly.
I am Mac NC30, even if in the pictures I seem to be much paler.
 
I will probably buy this again, maybe in a darker shade for the summer.

Well done benefit.

You will be able to find this at any benefit counter for £ 24.

Have you tried it yet? Opinion
