Benefit "Hello Flawless" Brightening Makeup

Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup is a essentially a foundation with a few extra benefits (excuse the pun), not unlike a BB cream, although it's not marketed as one. It's SPF 25, oil free, and contains vitamin C and E derivatives.

Hello Flawless is easy to blend, and provided good coverage of my numerous freckles and fine lines. It's not the heaviest foundation out there though, so for blemishes a concealer was definitely necessary. It feels more like a moisturiser to put on, than a foundation. The product also states that it has "hydrating complex" which may have something to do with it. I wasn't sure whether I liked this or not. Any moisturiser that gets my tick is one that is very light, which is why I really, really love BB creams, but this factor gave the foundation a slightly sticky feel as I put it on.

Regardless, this is a fantastic product. I tried it in the honey shade, which was a little dark for me, but this product is so blendable, that I could get away with it thanks to a little blending around the neck, and some light powder and blush for contouring.

Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW! – Benefit’s new brightening liquid foundation that will have you looking flawless in a flash.

  • Moz za says
    That sure is some interesting packaging - not sure quite what I think of it, but then I don't suppose that matters! I love the idea of the lighter cover, the SPF and the vitamins C and E. I too am a sucker for my BB cream but sometimes even that's a little heavy. I like that the reviewer said this product successfully hid freckles and fine lines (the latter being of most interst to me!).
