I got a large sample size of this foundation. I was really disappointed in this product. I struggled to finish the foundation. It is extremely light, less coverage than my BB cream. The foundation comes out of the pump as a really watery liquid. It was not able to build it up, as my skin took a while to dry from the first coverage.
It is a downer for those with oily skin. I saw it add shine to my face. And for what it is, I can easily get similar coverage out of a drugstore foundation.
Overall, I do not recommend this foundation at all.
I am disappointed in this foundation. I was looking for a replacement for Biotherm aquaradiance light! foundation as they do not make those anymore. :( This foundation from benefit is light and not too thick too , so I thought it would be a good purchase.. but it does not give coverage at all. The sales girl told me i could "build it up" , but then the color isnt right anymore. I think for women who are having a good skin already and just want a bit coverage it can be ok although sometimes I also find it looks greasy and shiny.
*I have a combination skin with redness.
I really love the packaging but found the product itself very disappointing. It went on really nicely and smooth but it did not last. I have slightly oily skin and I could see it starting to slide and oxidize after 4 hours - I even set it with powder and a setting spray (like I always do), which should have set it really well but nope!
Get a sample before buying at the benefit counter they give a good size and you can base your opinion on it, I thought it was alright !
Sigh, I loved this product when I bought it in the store.. But boy once I was wearing it at home I see. It's true colors lol. First of all let me start by saying I have very oily acne prone skin. The color match was great they have excellent yellow tones, but to say its oil free I feel horribly oily like after an hour of wearing it... It looks so greasy and gross. I hate I wasted my money there is another bottle of foundation down the drain. Maybe for dry skin or normal skin it can work for you, but my oily skin people stay away it's like putting bacon grease all over your face! Lol :/
Very disappointed in hello flawless oxygen wow .. Well I was on a mission to find a everyday foundation that I so needed . As half my beauty products are benefit I'd thought I'd give there foundation a go .. The sales girl was excellent cant complain ever about the service they give at the benefits counters . Was so excited we tryed two tones on my face the beige colour and honey I preferred the beige as it blended more with my skin tone . I ended up purchasing the foundation and also girl meets pearl which I absolutely luv ., driving home I feel my face so dewy & oily dying to get home to wash it off . It's a same the colour was so right it's just the texture was way to dewy for me . So so disappointed wish it wasn't as dewy . I reckon if it didn't have the SPF in it . It wouldn't be so bad ... Benefit sorry this foundation was a real let down for me and will not purchase again
Meh. I wanted to love this; the press around it made it sound ideal for dry skin with redness. I found this product to be drying and a little yellow for my NW10-15 skin. The shade with the closest match for me was the lightest Ivory color. It went on nicely but after 20 minutes, it settled into pores and fine lines. I wasn't impressed with the finish either; on me it wasn't exactly glowy or dewy as others have said, but again, that's likely because the formula wasn't hydrating enough for me. I think this foundation will work for people with combination and normal skin who have more yellow undertones, or more of a tan.
I don't understand the bad reviews! This is a wonderful everyday foundation. I bought it because of my obsession with the Hello Flawless powder. This isn't quite as good but it's still lovely! It gives a medium coverage that leaves a pretty glow. I love the amount of sunscreen this product has since that's important to me. The only negative I see with this foundation is that the shade selection is pretty bonkers. The "lightest" shade (Ivory) doesn't actually look lightest to me, and very fair people may not be able to find a shade. But other than that, I love it.
I bought this makeup without reading reviews and I'm glad I did. The reviews on this foundation are horrid yet I absolutely LOVE this. It's got a very dewy finish and doesn't really require the powder over top (I finish it kind of washes you out a bit). Gives me amazing coverage even though I have freckles and lasts all day. The lady at Myer who put it on was terrible so I freaked out when I got home and realised it was really thick and grotty. I took it off, put it back on myself and was one happy girl. Even though it says light coverage I find it covers great and is even good enough for evening wear. Gives my napoleon a good run for it's money. I love this with the "They're Real" mascara. Overall a great product and would recommend. P.s, I don't have oily skin, and this product probably wouldn't work for people with an oily complexion due to the dewy finish.
I had an initial bad experience with this foundation. I was in Boots and the assistant layered this foundation on really thick. I felt as if I was wearing a mask and having consulted my mirror on my way home, I had to remove it as it looked awful, thick and cakey.
However, I wanted to give it another try as I was using my hello Flawless powder everyday and running out quickly so wanted a combination of liquid and powder to make the products last longer (which does work!) Another six months later I decided to just buy a bottle of Shell shade in the Christmas offer and try it myself at home.
I was pleasantly surprised as it is a beautiful foundation! I bought my bottle in Christmas 2012 and I'm not even halfway through now! I use it everyday because of the silky matte finish (with powder to set) and it looks lovely and natural and never feels heavy! I think the assistant must have put a lot on my face that one time as it put me off liquid foundation for a while. I only use one pump of the foundation a day and I find this is plenty, especially with primer, powder and blush!
I love it! Lovely foundation and long lasting! Definitely goes hand in hand with the Hello Flawless powder :) Benefit got it right again!
