Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW:

I love this foundation. I've never had "my brand" because I've never used a foundation I could stand more than one or two bottles if that much. At 51, I have a few age spots along my hairline and a generally uneven skin tone. I hate heavy coverage and prefer a foundation that will even the skin tone and tone down the brown spots without feeling and looking heavy. This foundation with the coordinating powder does exactly that. The powder is so silky it almost feels like a cream. I'm using it with Ulta's Matte Prime and it applies pretty well with a brush. It takes a little more work to smooth out than some I've used, but it's not bad. A powder touch up to the brown spots once is all I need in a full day of wear. It's great to not see make-up smears on telephones or transferred to surfaces / clothing if something touches my face like with other foundations. I have oily skin in the T-zone and this does a great job of controlling the late day shine. I've not had any problems with irritation or breaking out.

I read several comments about the yellow undertone. I'm using the Toasted Beige and the yellow tint is a little noticeable when first applying but it seems to dissipate after being on for several minutes. The main thing I have noticed is that the tone is very conditional upon the lighting. In natural light and the fluorescent lighting in my work environment, the color is very natural. However, it seems to me that energy-saving bulbs are much more likely to bring out the yellow tone. Since I switched to this foundation a few weeks ago I have had multiple compliments on my appearance. I actually enjoy putting on my make-up now.

    I bought this in beige, it was the only foundation that really matched my skin tone and it doesn't make me oily at all it feels like I'm not wearing anything. I love that it has spf 25 in it. It's really awesome!

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW:

    This foundation will cover up my minor acne scarring on my cheeks and leave a soft feel on my skin. Not hard to take off at all and is long lasting. I would not recommend for daily use if your skin doesn't have many flaws. Good for special events where you want to dress up and get fancy.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW:

      I LOVE this foundation. A makeup artist at Ulta recommended it to me as another product I was using just wasn't giving me enough coverage. I have clear, normal skin, however I am very pale and get splotchy red cheeks, and have bad dark circles under my eyes. This foundation covers it all very easily!

      It goes on super easily; with only a tiny bit of product, blended in circular motions with an airbrush-finish foundation brush, I can do my whole face and get a flawless finish that lasts all day.

      The only thing I'd say is that the finish is a little shiny looking (more so than other foundations I've used in the past), and I apply translucent powder to handle that. Otherwise, I have nothing negative to say about this foundation, it's incredible and I'm in love with it!

          Sheer coverage with a beauty blender and medium coverage with a brush. I have a very oily Tzone and am very dry everywhere else, with a little matte powder on my Tzone this foundation seems to balance those areas out.

          This just wasn't for me. The color was beautiful and perfect for my winter complexion, but even with my skin being dryer right now due to the cold temps, this still slid off my face so fast. And to top it off, it gave me breakouts which is crazy because I have great skin and hardly ever any flare ups. I have very oily skin and this didnt agree with me.

              First time using liquid foundation so I wanted something that was light on my skin but would still give me some coverage. I fell in love with this foundation. It covers imperfections but doesn't look like its caked on. Very nice finish and stays on the whole day. Blends really well. Totally recommend it!
