Hello girls, I recently bought a new liquid foundation and I’m loving it 🙂 I was previously using the Chanel Matte Lumiere Powder Foundation for more than two years and it was time for me to get a new foundation so I decided to switch. Not that I didn’t like my Chanel one though, I like it still! Just thought I should start trying other brands before selecting my favourite one of all, heh.

I got mine in Champagne.
(p/s: already had the foundation on in my pictures. Looks natural, no?)
My verdict: This product is great for everyday use! It blends easily and provides an ideal amount of coverage. I usually squeeze 1/2 pump of the liquid foundation on my left hand and and use my fingers to apply and blend it on my face. It goes on smoothly and does not leave a cakey feeling. You will never leave the house looking like you just slabbed on ten layers of foundation. Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow (okay such a long name) is so lightweight and refreshing, it feels like not wearing any foundation at all! That is the best part about this product in my opinion, because I hate going out feeling like I applied a lot of foundation on my face.
Here is a before-after I took a month ago when my complexion was in a horrible condition. Pardon my unstable hands for the blurry image but I hope you still can see the difference.
In the “before” photo, you can see small red bumps near my eyebrow area and in the “after” photo, the exact same area seems to have smoothened out and the bumps are less obvious. The “after” photo looks photoshopped right? It isn’t!
I have very dry skin (especially on my cheeks) but I still choose to use oil-free products because my T-zone gets unbearably oily sometimes. I wore it the entire day and my T-zone was a little oily by the time I got home. Just a little oily, really. So yay to fresh and dewy complexion! It is perfect for those who want a natural and fresh look. 🙂
Some recent photos of me wearing this foudnation while I was out:
From this post.
I only edit the colours of my pictures, no other photoshop on other areas.
However, I wouldn’t recommend this product to people with oily skin because it is “luminous” and dewy. So it probably might make your skin look and feel even more oily.
Also, I tried this foundation for a studio photoshoot and it didn’t work that great. I looked quite pale in the photos so I guess I might have to stick to my Chanel foundation for photoshoots because photoshoots require thicker makeup.
AND AND don’t trust the colour test on the back of your hand. If you can, try it on your face directly. It is more accurate! The beauty assistant did the test on the back of my hand, it looked fine but when I applied it on my face, it was too dark! Two beauty assistants did the same thing to me, with different products. I am never trusting the colour test on the back of my hand ever again haha. Maybe it’s just me, but I think it’s better to be safe than to go home with the wrong shade!
You can get Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow at Sephora for $53.
