Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation

I was going to wait to do a review on this product............. but I really couldn't!! I absolutely am in love with this foundation. I have been using this foundation for about a month now. It is by Benefit and first of all, let me clarify that Benefit is by far my favorite cosmetic company and I will be doing a lot of reviews on Benefit products.  I will review the packaging, the effectiveness, the buildabilty, the coverage, and my overall rate of the product.

This is a fairly new foundation from Benefit. It recently came out in i think March. I picked up this foundation at my local Sephora but I know that is available at any place they sell Benefit cosmetics such as Ulta, Benefit Boutiques, Benefit Counters inside Macy's, or where i got mine, Sephora. I am in the color Champagne. It costs $34 so it is a little on the expensive side.

Packaging: The packaging is absolutely adorable. Benefit is known for having the cutest packages on all their products. It comes in a white and silver box with pink on the inside. The actual bottle of foundation comes in a cute see through cylinder with the words "Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup Oil Free SPF 25 PA +++ Non Gras" A HUGE plus is that this makeup comes with a pump so you can avoid the messiness of having to pour out the foundation and then having it get dirty. Also when i opened it up i was surprised with a free sample of the Porefessional. So i thought that was a nice little touch.  Overall the packaging gets 5 stars.

Effectiveness: This foundation really does brighten your skin the way it says it would. It does give you a natural complexion because it doesn't look too matte but it gives that little bit of dewiness that makes you look awake and refreshed. It also claims it prevents signs of aging but I'm only 17 so I can't tell if that is true or not :p

Buildability: This is more of a sheer foundation. I wouldn't recommend if you're aiming for more of a heavy coverage. But you could build this to a more medium coverage

Coverage: ^^^^^^

Overall rate: I give this a 4.5 out of 5. The only thing i find kind of crummy is that if you have oily skin this foundation might not be the best for you. This gives you a dewy finish so if you're face is already oily than its not going to look good. I have an oily t-zone so all i need is a little bit of powder on there and I'm set but for others, you're better off with a matte foundation.
