Like most I couldn't wait to trial the newest release from Benefit
which is actually their first ever liquid foundation...very exciting!
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation took 3 years to create
and comes in 9 shades which is provides decent enough variety wouldn't you agree?
So was it worth the wait? Read on to find out more... I'm such a tease!

As you can probably tell from the photographs I currently only have a sample (try before you buy)
but the packaging for the full size bottle doesn't differ at all, 
it is simple transparent bottle which allows you to easily see how much foundation you have left -
no more waking up in the morning to find you have ran out.
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation also have a pump function 
which is a god send with foundation as it allows you to dispense it with such ease and minimises waste.

"Hello…it’s flawless time! 
Our new oil-free brightening liquid foundation builds from light to medium coverage 
for a natural complexion you can believe in. 
It’s you…just more luminous & healthy looking."

As you have gauged from above this is an oil free formula that provides a light-medium coverage
that also contains an SPF 25 to help protect your skin against environmental damage and sun rays.
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation provides a natural coverage while hydrating the skin,
it also hydrates as it covers making it ideal for dry skin types.

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation is pretty thin and loose in consistency 
and very much a liquid which took a little getting used to as I tend to buy gel foundations.
It has a light "make-up" type scent that is not offending or strong nor do you notice it once worn.
How you apply the foundation is of course up to you but I found that as it is a liquid and a loose one at that,
I got the best coverage when applied with my fingertips but of course that is just preference!

As always I have used my mole as point of reference in terms of coverage

I have shade "I'm So Money" Honey which is approximately an NC25/30 in Mac
so it is a little to light for my NC37ish skin tone but not so much so that I couldn't warm it up with a bronzer
however when the time comes to buy a full size bottle I will buy a shade or two up.
On the skin this feels so light and hydrating and covers really well for a light to medium coverage level
as you can see from my before and after photos using my mole as guidance.
It applies really well and blends like a dream with next to no work.
As it has an SPF25 it makes it a great choice for all us city girls but perhaps not the best for flash photography - hello flash back a.k.a white face brown body.
My only grumble is that it wasn't as long wearing as I would have liked
but I do suffer from oily skin that only gets worse as the weather heats up so that will have contributed
to the shorter than usual wear time - un-primed/set this wore for 6 hours, primed/set just over 7.
