Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow - RRP £24.50.
As a Benefit lover, I was so pleased when I heard about their new liquid foundation. It was hyped up in the beauty and blogging world and I instantly knew I had to have it. The release isn't in the shops until 31st March but you don't have longer to wait! I bought it online and got some samples to try too. It came with a sample of the POREfessional and I only have pores around my nose and I didn't think I needed this but, I was proved wrong and now on my way to craving after the real deal.

A few weeks ago I actually tweeted Lisa, Benefit's head makeup artist asking advice on my shade as I wanted it but it's hard for me to get the right shades in shops but she matched me to Ivory Pure 4 Sure. I had no doubts this was what I needed so ordered it. Then I popped by the Benefit counter and tested out some samples which was a little dark too but knew I loved it after less than a few hours!

It's quite a runny consistency but don't be put off by this as a little goes a long way! I use no more than the amount above and it covers my whole face. I'm really amazed by the shade range and think it's got everything in a foundation a girl could want. It's oil-free, brightening and has SPF 25 (handy for my hols to rub in again!) Here is what Benefit says:

"Hello…it’s flawless time! Our new oil-free brightening liquid foundation builds from light to medium coverage for a natural complexion you can believe in. It’s you…just more luminous & healthy looking."

I have been looking for a long time for the perfect foundation for me. I must say, everybody is different and some things won't work for everyone, but I truly believe this is pretty amazing. I apply it using a stippling brush at 7:30am and by 5pm it is just about lasting. A little powder could make it last way into the evening or minor touch ups though. I'll most definitely be re-purchasing once mine runs out. :)

Next on my Benefit list: Hervana blusher and Porefessional. (i do need them..honestly) You can buy Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow here for £24.50!

On another note, I am attending the Benefit opening of the brow bar in Preston this weekend which I'm looking forward to, anybody else going?

  1. I ought the porefessionals yesterday and I already cant recommend it enough. It works miracles for the pores around my nose and on my forehead. I also got the hervana blusher tested on my skin while I was in the store and I'm lusting after it so madly as well, it was beautiful. I've not yet found a benefit product I don't love. xx

  2. I tried it today again and do like it! I love the feel of it and think I may have to invest in some :P I do love Benefit products a lot though and think you get what you pay for! x
