Review: Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation

Around November of last year I ventured into my local Benefit counter to see if they had any new products for me to try. The lovely girl at the counter recommended me a foundation which was launched in 2012, I believe. I've never heard of it before so I asked for a sample to try it out. Back home I instantly took off my makeup to play around with the foundation.

Judging by the description the Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation claims to be a brightening liquid foundation with light to medium coverage.  It's oil-free and has an SPF of 25. It claims to be hydrating with a natural finish. It's available in 9 colours, I'm in the shade "I'm pure 4 sure - IVORY". The foundation, including a sample if their Hello Flawless 15 Hour Primer retails for €34,99 in Germany, £25,50 in the UK and $36 in the US.

Blending this foundation into my skin my first impressions were that it was quite watery but also very easy to blend. It was very lightweight and looked flawless on my face. I was really impressed by the way it lifted up my skin. So impressed, in fact, that I went online to buy the full size bottle.

Now, 5 months later, this is my second bottle and I'm still in love with it. I can say that the foundation pretty much does all the things it claims. It definitely brightens my skin and leaves me with a natural matte finish. It doesn't dry out my skin and covers most of my imperfections (redness, blemishes, etc). I would say that it lasts about 6 hours without using a primer, which is pretty decent I think.
Besides that, I think this foundation would work quite well with many skin types. It's hydrating which is great for dryer complexions but it is also not too heavy or dewy which is good for people with oily skin.

All in all I think that Benefit did a great job with this foundation. I will definitely keep repurchasing

Have you tried this foundation before? What are you thoughts on it? xo
