Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow!

Lisa showing us the product in action!


Benefit have just launched their much anticipated liquid foundation, a first for the brand. The quirkily named product, Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow, is available in nine shades and is billed as a brightening makeup, offering buildable light to medium coverage. It’s also oil free, with SPF 25.

The charming and enthusiastic Lisa Potter-Dixon, Benefit’s Head Make-up & Trend Artist (and Brow Expert!), was in town last month to tell us all about it, and to show us the product in action. She recommends that you use the product with a primer and always apply with a brush, for a more polished finish. And so you can try before you buy, a little sample of Benefit’s primer, The Porefessional, is included in each bottle of foundation.
I was shade matched to ‘I’m so money honey’, which I found gave me a glowy, youthful finish – fans of the dewy look will love it, and though I personally prefer something a little more matte, this will get a lot more wear as we head towards summer. 

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow is €35 and on counter now. Will you be checking it out?

got this for me and the mini me - as you can build it up it's great for coverage for her 12 year old skin, without looking like she's wearing any. score. she was the palest, which surprised me, but it looks lovely on her..

me, i'm less convinced. I was also honey - and didn't help that my benefit babe caked me in it. but i' rubbish at saying no to such smiley happy helpful folks and came away with it... it's ok. and ten points for sun protection. but, but it's just ok. I'll be sticking to what I know ... :( x

Have to say I'm more of a matte girl (normally) myself but i do like this foundation a lot. Have been wearing it for the past few days and getting compliments on how glowing my skin is!

I'm very surprised that you were matched to the same colour as me as you're definitely paler... can you take it back? xo

Victoria said...

I really need to try a good foundation. This one sound great as it is oil free I hate looking all shiny in my face :)

Ioana-Carmen said...

I have used this line of shadows and liked it. I'm anxious to check this one out. I like the idea of a layering product as well all need varying amounts of products.

@BravoeRunway I'm pretty sure I heard Benefit is much cheaper in the States so you probably won't have to shell out as much as we do - seems like everything is more expensive here in Ireland!

Thanks hun, and Im the other way around, I've only tried e.l.f's eyeshadow, none of the other stuff.

This seems like a foundation I would like, since I like the Dewy finish.. x

jimmi lou said...

Really want to try this as I've been seeing it everywhere lately! I think it may suit me when I'm happy with my skin and not wanting heavier coverage!

I wasn't overly convinced when I tried it - however the benefit counter girl plastered me in Hazlenut, which is not my shade. I looked like David Dickinson! :-)
