Benefit's HELLO Flawless Oxygen WOW foundation review

So it's been about a week since the new foundation by Benefit made it's way onto our counters. I had the fortunate pleasure to be invited to the Roadshow that Benefit was doing. It covered many places all over the UK and I attended the Norwich event with the lovely Karen from The Fabulous Miss K. You can see my blog post on the Roadshow here.

        You can find the foundation in 9 shades which are split into 3 sections, light, medium and dark. It is a brightening make up that is designed for a light to medium buildable coverage, perfect for summer. It also has an SPF of 25 which is more than your average foundation. It has been made for you to have that flawless, natural complexion without the look of make up. 

Today I'm going to be reviewing the foundation for you that I've been using for a few weeks now and I've got to say that I do really like it. It is slightly too dark for me but it's still light enough for me to work with. My Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation is pretty much a perfect match. The Benefit foundation doesn't have a smell but sometimes that's a good thing for people. It does last all day and I only have to top up my blemishes. 

The difference between Benefit foundation and Bourjois - As you can see, it blends well and covers up my veiny hands! 

When I apply it with my Real Techniques buffing brush, it does incredible things. It applies beautifully and evenly to the skin (obviously moisturise and use a primer. The bottle of foundation comes with a free sample of the Porefessional primer which you could get about 2 uses out of). 

Of course, you can't miss the packaging. It is incredible like the rest of the Benefit products. The gorgeous, old vintage style boutiques and their huge range of different styles. 

You can buy the foundation in your nearest Benefit counter or store for £24.50. You can click straight through to the website from the picture on your right. You can also find your perfect shade too! 

What do you think of the new foundation? Have you got it?
