Hello Ladies,

Hope you all are doing fantastic! I have been MIA since a couple of days, due to a lot of ongoing stuff! Firstly as mentioned by me, I was all busy with arranging my Mommy’s birthday party and then got caught up in cleaning the house and then came a truck load of new furniture which is yet settling down in my house! God, too much work to handle! :P So amidst this I clicked some pictures of my brand new favorite foundation, the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup and thought I should review it for you!! So here we go,

My Thoughts On The Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup :

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup
Benefit cosmetics never fail to amaze me with their products! I am in lovvveee with their products ever since my first rub with the brand! When they launched their liquid foundation, I was more than eager to try it on! I got my hand over it about a week ago! They have a compact powder too from this range! Now that I have been using it, my love with the brand deepens and deepens!

Here are some swatches :

Texture:
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup is water based makeup base. It has a very watery liquidy formulation with full coverage! I find it to be a good mix between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation!!  This is one of those foundations which have a nice balance of pink and yellow undertones!!

How do I apply it:
Usually with clean fingers! I just use a brush where I need to build it up!

What’s to LOVE about the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup :

• The packaging. PUMPS+FOUNDATION=LOVE!!
• Quantity! You get ample product which shall last you for decent months!
• Shade selection! You get to choose from 9 shades which means, every skintone is bound to have their match!
• The formulation! It is a good mix between tinted moisturizer and a makeup base which means you have the freedom to build it and set it the way you want. You can have a nice light natural finish for your routine wear, whereas build it up to a full fledged coverage for a mile extra!
• It has a dewy finish/ semi matte!
• Light on the skin
• Doesn’t clog pores and lets the skin breath
• Pretty coverage! Affordable to skip a concealer for light scars and small pimple marks!
• Blends beautifully! You do not really need an effort to blend this!
• I usually do not go on for a full week with foundation, I alternate it with some mineral base, powder or even simple tinted moisturizer! But with this, I have been using it for every single day since the last week. My skin doesn’t seem to hate it or have break outs or irritation.
• Pretty Emollient.
• Has a smooth semi fluid texture, isn’t too watery though!
• Great for combination and oily skin types, since it keeps the skin from further oozing out oil and greasiness! Dry skinned ladies, are going to love it even more!!
• Has a very very mild floral scent!
• Has SPF 25+++ , that extra thing for saving your skin from the scorching DUBAI heat!
• Not just proves to be a great foundation, but also has this skin brightening thing, WITHOUT the presence of SHIMMER!
• Makes the skin look healthy and bright from within!Has moisturization properties too, makes my skin feel soft and supple!
• Has anti aging properties!!
• It applies beautifully without a primer, since it reduces the presence of pores but then , with the POREFESSIONAL, it is MAGIC!!TRUST ME!
• Photographs well as well! I mean I know it has SPF but then, it doesn’t really show up WHITE in the photos!
• Doesn’t transfer onto blotting sheets or tissue papers!
• Doesn’t melt!!  Or crease at the smile lines/ expression lines!
• Light enough to carry around and also travel friendly!

What’s to HATE about the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup :
