Review • Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation

I love buying and trying new foundations, I always seem to be on the hunt for a new favourite, so I thought I'd try the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow, as it isn't one I've heard too much about and thought I'd give it a try to see what it was like.

I paid £25.50 for it, which I definitely don't think is cheap for Benefit, as I wouldn't consider them a high end brand - however, you do tend to get what you pay for in terms of foundations. I have the shade Champagne, which is the third lightest out of the 9 shades. It does look quite dark in the bottle, but when applied it blends out and matches me perfectly when I have a tan - I'd say its quite similar to a MAC NC20/25. I really like the packaging, it has a pump (unlike some, *cough* NARS Sheer Glow..) and the foundation rises as it used, so you can see how much you have left. The consistency of the foundation is quite watery and smooth, I like to apply this foundation with my fingers, as it gives a more natural looking base - although it does work well with the Real Techniques buffing brush. The foundation looks very 'skin like', not overly matte or dewy and the coverage is light. 

Overall I would definitely repurchase this foundation, I didn't expect to like it as much as I do. It's such a lovely base for summer, as it's a lightweight, with a high SPF and gives a healthy glow without looking oily.

you can find it here.
