Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Review

WARNING this blog post contains photographs of me without foundation, which some readers (myself included) may find disturbing!

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow in I'm Pure for Sure
Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow is Benefit's first liquid foundation, and guess what...its a beauty!! If you read this blog regularly you'll know that last week I attended the Manchester leg of the the Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Roadshow where I met Lisa Potter-Dixon, Benefit's head makeup and trend artist. Lisa colour matched me to the 'I'm Pure for Sure' Ivory shade of this foundation. I also had my makeup done by Lisa and she gave me a weeks worth of foundation to use until my bottle came through the post. In just a week this foundation has become a staple of my makeup routine.

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow is a light to medium coverage brightening foundation. In a market awash with foundation Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow stands out from the crowd, mainly due to the fact that it has SPF 25 PA +++ ,which provides protection against sun burn and sun damage. I think I'm right in saying that this is the highest protection offered by any foundation on the market at the moment.

I consider myself to have terrible skin, and when I said this to Lisa Potter-Dixon she very tactfully said that I don't, I just have 'problem areas.' I consider my whole face to be a 'problem area' and I definitely cannot go without foundation.I particularly need good coverage on my chin, as this is where I am the most prone to spots. I applied this foundation with my trusty ELF foundation brush and it is super easy to apply, blend and build. I've found it to be long wearing giving a good 6 to 8 hours coverage, even in the recent heatwave we've been having.

The small sample pot of foundation I was given and have been using for over a week and there's still some left!
Priced at £24.50, Hello Oxygen Flawless Wow it isn't the cheapest foundation on the market but it lasts for ages. I was given a pot with a sample of this product in last Sunday. It has the diameter of inch and a depth of about a centimeter. I have used it twice a day for a week (I have two jobs so always touch up my makeup before I go to work in the evenings) and there is still some left, so a little definitely goes a long way!

As you can see I have an uneven skintone and have an ongoing battle with my chin! I applied the Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow over a moisturiser and the sample of Porefessional that comes with the foundation. As you can see it covers well and I feel that it does have a brightening effect on the skin. I've had a few compliments whilst wearing this foundation and lets face it, everyone likes a compliment! I really do like this foundation, its easy to wear and apply and the end result is really flattering. Hello Oxygen Flawless Wow gets a big thumbs up from me.

  1. I'm pure 4 sure too ;) It's weird how it looks like I'm not wearing foundation but am and it covers my spots up really well! I've been blending it with the some kind of gorgeous from the cabana kit too using my new foundation brush as an extra concealer!

    1. Yeah I know, loads of people have said how great my skin looks and when I told them it was a new foundation they've said they didn't realise I wore any! Pfft wish that was the case! I've been using Boiing as a concealer and I really like it! xx

  6. I tried this foundation and I absolutely loved it! My skin actually glows (not like Edward's but it comes pretty close)! My skin is naturally dry and this foundation not only hides it but actually balances it out and improves it too! I am a fan!
