I really wanted to love this! It came in the "How to Look the Best At Everything" kit I got at Sephora (in "light"). I knew in the store that the included sample in "champagne" was probably still too dark for my skin, but thought I'd give it a whirl anyway. I was, just as I suspected, too dark and orangey for my pale neutral/pink (NW-15/20) skin. All of the other shades had the same peculiarly orange cast to them. On the plus side, it had very little smell and a small amount seemed to go a long way (two drops was more than enough to cover my entire face). This is a great, sheer foundation, but just the wrong color for me. Very fair girls should look farther.
i kinda hate this foundation because it gives a glowy / dewy finish to my skin which i hate, i prefer matte foundations to keep my skin from getting oily. and the pump is so annoying, sometimes i have to pump a few times to get the liquid out because the foundation doesn't wanna come out, if u open the bottle, screw open the pump, you will see that the pump doesn't have that plastic "string" thing that usually goes all the way to the bottom of the bottle to pump out all the liquid, this one is just a pump without that string which how are u even gonna get any liquid out of there. but i like that this is a blendable foundation but i definitely have to use concealer if i want more coverage, and i'd set it with the studio fix powder from mac to give me a semi matte finish, overall, this foundation is expensive and totally not worth the money :(
I really love using this Foundation. Its so light weight and has just the right amount of coverage if you are just going for a natural look. I do like to do full coverage sometimes when plans call for it. I can build up the coverage with this product and still fill like I am not wearing anything.
Updating my review to say I have actually fallen in love with this product *after* using it with my DHC Velvet Cream primer. It actually does glide over enlarged pores, etc., and leaves a very "blurred" finish yet lets your inner "glow" shine through as well. I also like that it is easy to remove at the end of the day and only takes 1 makeup remover cloth to take off every bit of product.
It may seem expensive but, since it only takes 1-2 pumps to cover my entire face, this will last at least a couple of months. Paired with Benefit BeneTint on the cheeks, it's a definite winner for a put-together but casual look.
I generally love BeneFit products, but this one I'm a little disappointed with. It's a great lightweight concealer, but because my complexion is pretty smooth as-is despite the occasional blemish, it doesn't do too terribly much for me and I sometimes can't even tell if I put any on in the morning (on the bright side, that means it's a good match for my skin tone, right?!) It is exactly a foundation and nothing more -- doesn't cover a lot, and requires another layer of spot concealer for me to really have an effect. Doesn't do much for my under eye circles either, but the pigment is right-on for my skin and it looks natural once it's on.
When I put this on in the morning, my skin looks amazing - more luminous and radiant than it ever really is. Between then and lunch time, the luminosity fades and my skin looks fine, but no longer amazing - which is fine, because I don't really expect amazing from my foundation, just an evening out of skin tone and decent coverage.
So, in short, it's perfectly serviceable foundation, but I'm going to continue my search for a HG foundation.
I love this foundation! Its is quite expensive but totally worth it. It has very sheer coverage. It makes your skin look flawless without looking like you're wearing any makeup at all.
I love everything about this foundation except it's a tad too yellow for my pinkish skin. I'm NW25 and bought this in "Petal". For now I just go over it with a pink highlighter to neutralize the yellow. I plan on getting a correcting pink liquid to mix with it. The coverage is medium and it stays put all day on my normal/dry skin. To really get the flawless look, I use the Hello Flawless powder on top. I said yes, that I would buy this product again, but only if I can find a better match.
I have this in ivory, and it's definitely my new favourite!
Great for if you have dry to combination skin in my opinion, because it's in liquid form and moisturises your skin. It doesn't block up pores or dry out your skin -> definite plus!
You don't need that much AT ALL for daily use, even if you like heavy coverage, therefore price isn't unreasonable I don't think. It lasts the whole day and feels comfortable to wear.
A negative, however, is that, I feel, it does make my face look slightly shiny as opposed to dewy. BUT this might be because I use moisturiser and primer underneath. Also, if this is a problem, the powder version of this product settles it down and makes it look more matte when brushed lightly over the top, according to the salesgirl down at the shops.
Package-wise, I love the pump. It's really handy and neat!
Oh also, I compared it with a Mac foundation I had tried, and this was a definite dupe! There was practically no difference between to two, for my skin anyway. continued >>
This isn't an HG foundation but it's pretty decent. I use this in Petal which blends perfectly into my yellow-undertone, light tan asian skin then finish off with some loose powder. The medium coverage is just enough for me since my skin is mostly acne-free and the only problems I have are dark circles and minor rosacea. This hasn't caused breakouts so far, so yay!
The only downside I found was that the foundation slides after around 4 hours of me wearing it, so I blot and touch up.
To conclude, if you're a yellow-undertone girl looking for natural-looking, accurate shades, Oxygen Wow would be a good choice, but if you prefer something longer-lasting with good coverage, maybe you should try something else. :)
