Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation Review

Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation is something that I've always wanted to try, I've actually had this for quite a while but only recently started wearing it so decided that I needed to review it for you all now I've finally had the chance to give it a fair trial. I absolutely love Benefit and this product just proves even more why they're one of my favourite beauty brands.



Packaging: Packaging wise this product looks gorgeous (mine is a little bit dirty after too much use oops) but it's nice to see white/transparent packaging as most of my products tend to be black and shiny, which is nice, but this is a nice change for my make up bag. I love how playful all of Benefit's products are.

Application: It's nice and light weight to touch, it feels quite watery, but not as watery as L'Oreal's Nude Magique Foundation - when you do actually apply it, I'd say it's a medium coverage, but it literally does glide onto the face.

Colour Range:  The colour range for this product is really good, I found it hard to choose which colour to get as there were so many. I went for shade Honey (also because I liked the name haha). My hands aren't this orange unfortunately Winter lighting is pretty bad at the moment and makes my hands look orange on photographs. 

Oil Control: It's oil free so obviously it really isn't oily but in terms of it looking oily on the face, I don't find it makes me look oily at all, it makes my skin look bright and dewy, I love the finish.


The Finish: See above for the finished result, as you can see, it's a really nice, light-weight looking and flawless, even if I do say so myself. I finished it off with MAC's Mineralize Powder in Medium/Dark and Estee Lauder's Bronzer. This is a really neutral make up look but I like it for family days.


The Final Impression: Every one has complimented my skin whilst wearing this foundation, I do think it gives a really nice natural, but flawless finish, I love the dewyness of it, but it's not too dewy. I love how light-weight it feels whilst on the skin, it's really easy to wear and I'd say it lasts quite well on my face as well throughout the whole day. This foundation is perfect for day wear or night wear, I'd just put a little bit more on a night to get more of a full coverage.

*This was kindly sent to me by Benefit but as always, my review is 100% honest.

Have you used this? What foundations would you recommend?
Lots of love, Em x

  3. Compared to the Vichy Dermafinish Foundation, which do you prefer?

    I absolutely love Vichy product and want to try it next.

    1. I love Vichy Dermablend so I'm pretty stuck between the two, I think the Vichy one is a little bit thicker and you need to put less on to make it cover more of your face and get a better coverage. The smell of Vichy is the only thing I don't like, it smells thick but you can barely feel it when it's on your face, in comparison to this though the texture is a lot thicker x

    2. Which shade do you wear if you don't mind me asking? We have no stores in the US so I can test them, I will have to guess and order online. :/

  4. I had a sample of this and love the way it felt on my skin! Like you said, it glides onto the skin with a flawless but natural finish! I'd really like to purchase this in the full size at some point! Thanks for your review.

  5. I transitioned into this foundation after using M.A.C for so many years and it is AMAZING!
    It does 'glide' onto the skin and soaks in well and doesn't leave a heavy feeling on you're face :-) I also find that it has an added brightener so you could just use this mixed with a sunscreen or moisturizer if you want a slight tint too and it gives you a lovely glow.
    Totally agree with this review!

    1. Yeah I was the same to be honest, but I swear by Benefit and i'm always sold by anything that says 'flawless' on the packaging, I didnt think much of it but then i looked back at photos and got so many compliments on my skin when wearing it! x Thank you so much :) that's so kind of you xxx

  10. I really like this foundation too, but my all time favourite is the Bourjois healthy mix foundation as I find it a little more dewy.
