Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Brightening Makeup: The “Wow!” Effect


I don’t wear foundation – I hate it, actually. The older I get, the less makeup I wear. (Oh, the irony. I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup as a teenager and had to apply each morning at my bestie’s house before school!)

For a light look and feel, I’ve been using La Roche-Posay BB sunscreen under Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge: that’s been the winning combo for me. Add a touch of Tom Ford illuminating primer and Bobbi Brown’s highlighting pen, and I get carded 100% of the time.

So when I received Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Brightening Makeup (that’s a mouthful!), I thought, “yeah, uh-huh, sure” (and honestly, a cheap plastic container doesn’t help get my attention). Well, prove me wrong time and again, Benefit! This oil-free liquid foundation not only glides on as light as air, it looks like skin! I wear one layer during the day add another at night and look dewy fresh until it’s time for bed! I didn’t see much brightening without adding my highlighters but so what? This stuff is awesome!

    1. I am a nc30 also and wear Benefit’s hello flawless powder foundation in Honey so I think the liquid foundation in the same shade Honey should work.
