Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation – Review
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation comes in a translucent light weight plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. The pump is quite robust and the cap shuts tight making this bottle quite easy to travel with. I love the overall packaging of this foundation. The foundation has a moderately thick creamy texture which spreads easily. It works equally well with sponges and flat top kabuki style brushes. The coverage is medium and gives semi – dewy finish. It has a serum infused formula called the Benefit’s exclusive Oxygen Wow Hydrating Complex, which is said to boost cellular respiration revealing a plumping effect. I don’t see any visible plumping effect but it does provide a dewy glow. It doesn’t completely dry down as expected because of the formula. So it is very prone to transfers to phones and clothes (collared shirts) which I find is similar to Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. It also has a tendency to settle into the smile lines so a smoothing primer is a must around the nose and mouth area to keep this to minimum. Because of this, this is not a foundation I’d recommend for aging skin.
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation is ideal for dry to very dry skin because it is very hydrating. It doesn’t cling to dry patches at all. I personally wouldn’t recommend this to those with oily skin but if you must, a mattifying primer should do the trick. Application wise, this applies great and is very easy to blend into skin. The coverage is medium and layering on the product doesn’t increase the coverage. This foundation does have a tendency to oxidize slightly. I find that if I use a smoothing primer, the color change is not very apparent however if you use a hydrating primer, this can oxidize to atleast 2 shades darker. I am in the shade Beige and though a bit yellow than my liking, it’s looks good on my skin when blended down the neck. Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation lasts about 6 hours with a primer. It fades or rather moves around by the end of the day. It contains SPF 25 which is great. They have a nice shade range with total 9 shades. Shade 5 (Beige) onwards cater to medium – deeper skin. It is fragrance free which is a plus.
Overall Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation is a good foundation that is well suited for dry skin. I like how this foundation wears on my skin – medium coverage with a subtle natural dewy look.
