Finally, we can follow Rihanna’s lead and “shine bright like a diamond” with this skin-brightening liquid foundation. A beauty editor favorite, it delivers oil-free moisture and a smooth, flawless finish that’s true to its name. Formulated with SPF 25, it protects skin while creating the gorgeous glow of a precious gem (or a multiplatinum pop star).
I was so suprised how well this blended into my face and stayed. I did use a primer (not theirs) and bronzer so the make up stayed for hours. It even lasted through my interview. Only downside is the color got all over hands and towles after applying.5
My skin is fair and fairly dry, except for my chin, which has a bit of acne on occasion. In the past, I've used oil-free and light coverage foundations from origins, clinique, and mac. I have been using Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow for about six months now (through a weather change, from winter to summer). I love it! It brings my skin a radiant glow. It goes on with light to moderate coverage, but it is buildable, so I can add more layers on my chin where I have acne scars and the parts of my cheek that have sun spots. I thought this might be too glowy for the summer, but it is such a natural hydration and shine, that I still love it, even in the 100-degree-weather of the south.4
I have used many products similar to this one but I found this to be one of the best. It feels light, like I'm not wearing makeup however I still get the full coverage that I want. It also left my skin soft and smooth. I love that it is oil free and provides UV protection.5
The coverage is nice and light, however I have oily skin and this foundation left me feeling really slick. I received this in my July box.3
This product is totally awesome. I love the feel of the product.5
I liked how it felt going on but the sample color was a little too dark for my skin tone. I would've loved a lighter shade.2
It was too yellow for my skin, and I wasn't immediately impressed with the coverage.2
I have tried this product before and I still find to have strong positive qualities but I have certain needs in a foundation that this does not fulfill.
I'm not crazy about the Benefit line in general, but this foundation is one of their better products. Its texture is smooth and blends well. I found it looks quite natural. I don't feel it to be excessively heavy-feeling on my skin, although I wouldn't say it's terribly light, either.
Personally, I have exceptionally oily skin so I really need something that focuses on mattifying and/or long wear (even when using a mattifying primer and powder), and this doesn't. At least, not to the degree that I need. Also, the shade Birchbox sent me was a bit to dark for my light to medium skin.
I used You Rebel by benefit which is a tinted moisterizer. I actually like this just as much and prefer the packaging over the tube style. It's light--not greasy/thick, but still adds color.4
This product was extremely light weight. It gave me flawless skin and perfectly matched my skin tone. It last for a solid 12 hours without any touchups needed. A little also went a long way!5
