Hey hey beauties! I hope everyone is doing well. Today I am going to be reviewing the Benefit ‘Hello Flawless!’ Foundation. I’ll tell you my honest opinion and let you know if this product lives up the “WOW” factor it claims.

 

Lets get started!

Here are some of the facts about the foundation.


What it is:
A brightening, oil-free liquid foundation that builds from light to medium coverage with broad-spectrum SPF 25 protection.

What it does:
Get ready for a more hydrated and luminous you. This natural-finish foundation builds from light to medium coverage for a natural complexion and features light-diffusing properties and hydrating benefits. Its nourishing formula contains Benefit’s exclusive Oxygen Wow Hydrating Complex, which helps boost cellular respiration for a “plumping up” visual effect, protects against environmental stresses, and contains vitamin C and E derivatives known to prevent the signs of aging.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
What does PA+++ mean? SPF stands for the protection grade of the UVB filter. PA stands for the protection grade of the UVA filter. The highest standard of sun protection rating is the three-star PA rating. Benefit’s foundation has three stars, which translates to the highest level of protection.

*Information taken from Sephora product description.

I found out about this product when I received it as a sample at Ulta. I am in the shade”I’m Pure 4 Sure” Ivory.  It’s the lightest shade of the 9 shades they make.

First off, the packaging is adorable, I love the pop of pink and the cute font and design. Benefit always slays the packaging game. The magic happened when I actually put the foundation on my face. I knew I needed it from that moment on. These are the reasons I am obssesed with this foundation, and why you should be too!

Matches my Skin Tone. This is a big one for me, I have a very hard skin tone to match and this foundation is one of the few that actually does match, perfectly. So, when I find a foundation that works, it becomes BAE. Benefit offers 9 different shades. All of the shades lean a little on the warmer side of skin tones.

 Flawless Finish   Benefit wasn’t joking when they named this foundation. It does make your skin look FLAWLESS. This foundation hides all redness, covers up my acne scars, and it brightens my skin, leaving it look very healthy.

Hydrates With Out Looking Greasy  There are not a lot of foundations I have found that work with my oily skin.  Normally I try to avoid all things “Luminous and Dewy” because I don’t need more oil added to my face haha!. This foundation hydrates my skin leaving it looking healthy and bright, and the formula in this foundation actually does nourish my skin. I instantly notice this glow-from-within, plump look to my face.

 Coverage is Build-able   You don’t need a lot of this foundation, in the description it says its a build-able light to medium coverage. I am not sure I agree with that, for me it is much more of a medium to full coverage foundation with a sheer finish. It reminds me a lot of the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream.

Long Wearing   This foundation will not leave your face. There is NOTHING worse than looking in the mirror halfway through the day and seeing all of your make up just breaking up and coming off, (we’ve all been there).  I do recommend using a setting powder, my favorite is Laura Mercier Translucent Setting powder, but any setting powder will do.

So, does this foundation live up the the “WOW” factor it claims? I would say yes; this foundation easily has become one of my favorites, and I highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a new go-to medium-coverage/natural-finish foundation. I would love to hear if you try this product and what your opinion is.

Well I hope you guys enjoyed this review! Let me know what you would want to see next!

Thanks for stopping by!

      Dude I get you. The only reason I know a little bit about color matching was because I worked at a little make up store where I had to learn to match! Thankfully Sephora has that new electronic way of matching you! Thank you so much:) Have a great day!
