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.
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. :)
This foundation is lightweight as advertised, but it has a kind of slimy feel that I just didn't like. It never quite felt like it melded with my skin, rather, it sat on top and didn't look smooth and natural. It accentuated dry areas and felt oily at the same time. The shade 'I'm so money honey" was ok at first for my nc20-25 skin, but it seemed orangey in some lighting. It didn't last well thought the day, and I found it sliding off my nose onto my glasses. For reference, I have combination skin with an oily t zone, drier in some spots, and I tried applying this with both a flat brush and a stippling brush. I just didn't feel comfortable wearing this all day, especially in natural lighting. It didn't look flattering. With that said, I think this has potential to work on some skin types. It's worth a try if you can get a sample. It has an SPF of 25 with broad spectrum protection.
So I tried this foundation at the Debenhams store because my friend recommended it.. It looked amazing! I immediately bought it along with the powder and primer 'That Gal'.
After a few hours I realised that the foundation went really really patchy! It looked horrible! I thought that maybe the makeup artist just didnt do it properly so the next day I thought it would be amazing again.. I did it along with the powder and after the whole day at school I looked horrible.. My face was patchy in places and the colour changed to darker than when I first applied it! Also I realised it had a pink undertone it looked awful. But then again my friend loves the foundation, She has normal/dry skin and shes tanned.
I tried a different shade of the powder with another foundation and its amazing! I would definitely recommend trying the powder!
-Doesnt last long at all
-Very Light Coverage
+ From what my friend says it the bottle lasts a long time
This is not good for dry skin! It makes you look about off and it cakes on dry spots. I have since changed my skin care and added a bb cream underneath and noticed a nice finish. If you are going to but make sure your skin is in top condition!
I have combo skin oily in the summer aqnd dry in the winter. I bought this to even out my skin, I have a few red spots and powder does not help them. The MUA said that this would help my redness and give me a medium coverage. I must say that I like how my skin looks ( as far as the redness) and I like that my face glows, with powder my face looked a little ashy. I would recommend this for girls who are looking to even out their complextion. If you need a lot of coverage this is not for you. Also if you have super oily skin this will not work for you either as it it is liquidy and thin. I probably would purchase agin but for winter time only I may nedd a new founfdation in the summer.
I really enjoy the packaging and Oxygenating aspect of this foundation. I have tried it a few times now and upon application I love it. It is very lightweight, smooth, and creamy. It gives the skin a beautiful glow and good but also natural coverage.
Unfortunately, I have Combination to Oily skin so about halfway through the day my skin appears to be extremely slimey, even when I use a mattifying cream underneath and set with a high quality Lancome powder. I bet someone with extremely dry skin would absolutely love this foundation. But for me, to look oily in freezing cold weather is just ridiculous!
This product goes on very light weight and not much is needed to cover my entire face. I use one full pump than dot some on my cheeks, forehead, jaw and nose than blend out with a flat top brush. I also have tired using this with a Beauty blender sponge and this method works well too. This is not a full coverage foundation but can be built to a good medium coverage. This is a wonderful everyday foundation that won't make you look cakey. It gives a semi matte/dewy finish (if that makes sense). This foundation does have a slight fragrance to it but it's not over whelming or over powering it plus it is a pretty smell that I enjoy! This item is a little pricy but that's not a problem when your using so little product! Overall this is a new favorite in my foundation drawer.
This foundation is fantastic. I am a huge fan of light, natural foundations. This never gets cakey! It is thin and very easy to blend. It brightens skin tone like it says, but doesn't leave it sparkly or shiny like other "luminizing" foundations. I am a firm believer that all foundations should have a yellow tone (not TOO yellow) instead of pink because yellow will cancel out the pinkish or red in your face and just make you look healthy. I have oily skin but all I had to do was use a mattifying primer and powder over and I was good to go. If you're having oil problems with this...use a mattifying spray like urban decay de slick. The only thing I don't like is the colors are a little deep...make sure you can find your match perfectly before you buy. Overall great products <3
I received this in a swap on here. I've been curious to try this for a while. The shade Toasted Beige is a great match for my skintone. No annoying foundation lines. Did not cling to dry patches. Very moisturizing and blended really well. The coverage is decent too. It feels lightweight, which is a huge plus. The lasting powder is pretty good, but I did have to set with MAC Studio Careblend Pressed Powder. I had to touch with 2x mid-day with the MAC powder, because I did get oily around the T-Zone. This foundation is definitely for dry skin. I don't have to blot with my other foundations. This is definitely not going to replace my MAC Studio Sculpt. That keeps my face flawless all day and doesn't get oily. I think this is really nice for dry or mature skin. I will use this one days where I'm running errands and things for that sort. But when I want lasting coverage all day without having to touch up, I won't be using this.
I've been using this all week along with my MAC Studio Careblend Pressed Powder & I really love the natural, glowy look that this gives. The shade is ON POINT! i love how it looks like my skin, only better & more awake.
