AMW Reviews: Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup

Do you still remember the Benefit Grand Launch I attended , we were all given samples of the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow and most of the event's guests, including myself, are super excited to test on the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup Foundation before it hit the local market!

This is the original bottle size

Ingredients:


AMW says ---
Pros

  • Pump packaging.
  • Weightless, feels super light on skin and feels like you did not apply foundation on!
  • Has SPF25
  • Build-able coverage.
  • Gives a soft, luminous skin minus the oily-feel and look.
  • 2-in-1 product. Can work as a concealer and foundation.
  • Considering this is an oil-free foundation, it is hydrating for me because of its Vitamin C and E.

Cons

  • May not be enough to hide the pores, acne marks and wrinkles.

Overall
A lightweight, oil-free foundation that suits almost all skin type!  The extra SPF is great and it never look heavy or cake-y no matter how much you apply.

Tips

  • Choose to apply with the use of your fingertips, sponges or brush.
  • If you have extra skin problems like wrinkles, big pores and acne marks, prep your skin prior to foundation application.
  • For quick makeup application, apply more on the center of your face, with clean fingers, foundation brush or sponge, feather out the foundation to create a very light, natural look.
  • Always set your foundation with a setting powder if you have oily skin.
  • You can leave the foundation as is and set only on areas that oil-up (t-zone) if you have combination skin.
  • Leave your foundation the way it is to create a bright, luminous look if you have dry skin.


Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Normal and combination skin.  Super dry skinned individuals can still use this with the right moisturization underneath while very oily skinned individuals can use this with an oil-control primer underneath.

Where to purchase and how much?

Available locally on March 28, 2012 at Benefit Boutique Greenbelt 5 for Php1,900 (approx $43.00)
  
Shade: Champagne 
Has the right amount of yellow
that works for NC20-30 skin


Applied a tiny amount and the coverage can be seen

Will you give Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup a try or would you stick to your foundation brand?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
