Bright Beginnings – hello new foundation

Bright Beginnings – hello new foundation

Getting the right foundation is a tricky task. At the moment I like a foundation that is natural looking, light wear, and is long wearing. I have tried and tested so many and have disliked so many that I was genuinely not hoping for much when I say this new foundation offering from Benefit Cosmetics.
Hello Flawless Oxygen Foundation seems to have it all. According to Benefit Cosmetics this foundation ticks a lot of boxes such as: 
  • ·         Oil Free
  • ·         Skin Brightening and Luminous
  • ·         Natural Complexion
  • ·         Light Weight
  • ·         Buildable Coverage
  • ·         Hydrating Benefits
  • ·         Light Defusing
  • ·         SPF
  • ·         Available in 9 shades.

This is some comprehensive list of characteristics for any foundation to live up to. Seeing as there is 9 different shades it is easier to choose the correct shade for your skin. I settled on the shade honey (I’m so money honey). It is a very natural shade that as it turns out suits my skin really well.
My first impression of the foundation on pumping a small amount out onto my hand was that shade is so natural. It looks and feels smooth and this only became more apparent when applied to the face. It is not streaky, it is not cakey and it is not heavy in any way. In fact it is extremely velvety on the skin. I needed only a small amount of the foundation and achieved really good coverage while blending really easily also. I felt as if this skin was actually gentle on my skin. It lasted all day and gave me a really nice glow. I love my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation but at the moment this offering from Benefit Cosmetics is a close second. Definitely worth a try if you are on the lookout for a new summer foundation.

  1. I got a sample recently and love it so much! It doesn't change colour and stays on the whole day, I'm going to buy the full size once I run out!
