Fab foundation - Glosscars BIB
I love this new foundation to bits. I have been using it for a few months and still have most of the bottle left as you only need to use a tiny bit at a time. A little truly does go a long way. Naturally, I have very pink flushed cheeks and this foundation covers the redness very nicely. Before this, I wouldn't touch blush with a ten foot pole. Now my face is left with a 'blank' canvas and I can actually add a little blush back! I also tend to sweat a lot, yet this foundation stays in place for the entire day on my skin! I love the fact that it has SPF25 so I can rest assured that my skin is safe from the harsh Aussie sun! :)

Although not my HG foundation, it is one of the foundations I reach for quite often. I wear Honey, which is the perfect colour for me. This foundation does work better on top of primer (I'm loving porefessional), but even so, does not last for more than 4-5 hours. It has a light/medium coverage, and is great for those wanted a dewy finish, and it fades evenly. I love that it has SPF in it, and thats the main reason why I wear it so often, but I will steer clear of it for nights out, especially if there will be flash photography. It's a great foundation for beginners, as it is easy to use, and hard to mess up (does not cake up at all!).

Very Light coverage
I prefer a full-coverage and this is not easily buildable as some say it is.
I feel like all this is good for is evening out my skin tone but not providing product or coverage or a glow...

perfect amount of coverage
Perfect amount of coverage, can build it up for a heavier full coverage foundation or use sparingly for a more natural look. It lasts all day and doesn't move around your face during the day. It is perfect for oily skin as it isn't oily and has a matte like finish. I like to use the 'hello flawless' powder on top of the foundation for a heavier look.
Perfect all round foundation!

Dewy Fresh Face
Always one to try a new tinted moisturiser or BB cream, I bought this after having a Benefit MUA sample some on me after visiting the Benefit brow bar. I was pleasantly surprised that a foundation could be so light and provide such even and fresh coverage. I went out and bought a bottle the very next day. Despite dusting pressed powder over my face after applying this product, I found that my skin still looked quite dewy - by the end of the day it did look a little shiney. So impressed with how little you actually need to use to provide enough coverage for my face. I apply it with a stippling brush and it applies beautifully - so even and flawless. Great for my dry skin. Such a natural fresh face - love it.

The lady at the benefit counter applied this foundation on me, the colour was pretty good perhaps a tad too dark but wearable. I had the benefit primer on underneath and found as the day wore on it went very patchy, the lady assured me that with the primer on the foundation would last all day it barely made it to lunch time and was applied at 9am. Glad I tried before buying

Nice and Light
I have this in light and I found the coverage pretty decent for a light to medium foundation. I don't normally like wearing foundation because it feels too heavy on my skin, but this foundation is nice and light and gives me decent coverage. I only wear this maybe once a week, and it doesn't break me out.

WOW is correct
There is absolutely nothing bad that I can say about the Oxygen Wow. It blends perfectly, gives a light - medium coverage (my preferred coverage) yet still gives the flawless finish that it claims. It somehow makes my skin brighter, natural and illuminating, and a very little goes a long way.
On days where my skin is a little dryer than usual, this does not cake, does not make my skin worse and in fact adds a bit of moisture so I do not appear to have dry skin.
I will definitely be repurchasing.

The lady at the Benefit counter demonstrated this product on my face, she used a damp sponge and dabbed it all across. I couldn't tell if it was the way she applied the foundation or if it was the wrong tool that she used, but it looked pretty evident that I was wearing foundation - not natural. The colour was also not right, I could see a clear barrier of where the foundation stopped. The formula of the foundation is ironically thick, I would be more likely to have described it as paint instead of a cosmetic product. I was glad that I had at least tired it since I wouldn't purchase it now that I now it's formula.

Check that it's right for you first.
This one is tough for me, it's not quite right for my skin type but I've tried to set that aside for reviewing purposes.
This foundation will be best suited to those with normal skin who like a light to buildable medium coverage.
I find that it absolutely must be set with powder otherwise it just goes walkabout all over your face and no one wants that. when the foundation is set it stays in place and has a really nice finish.
The pump packaging is really nice, it's easy to control how much you dispense.
The foundation feels quite nice on the skin and is very light.
On oily skin this doesn't fair well at all, it'll break down and look weird so just don't go there, you won't be pleased!

Not a hugging foundation
I have to say for oily skin like me drugstore foundation is actually better than this. When I first wore this, it seems evident that I was wearing a foundation, since it didn't blend really well with my skin.
I like how the designed the pump for the packaging instead of pouring it for control the amount of solution on your pad. And the title 'hello flawless' automatically attracts younger audiences - but really it didn't not give my a flawless finish (quite the opposite). At the end of the day I noticed my skin had already dried up because of the foundation. It was actually oily and dry at the same time. This was not want I originally wanted. RESPONSE FROM BENEFIT: Dear Tee631,
Thank you for your feedback on your recent Benefit Product experience.
We are sorry to hear the hello flawless oxygen wow liquid foundation did not work for your skin.
Our hello flawless oxygen wow is an oil free product, with an SPF 25 factor, this can leave the skin with a slight sheen. Primers are a must for any perfect complexion base. Try using the Hello flawless oxygen wow layered over an oil free primer such as Dr. feel good. This combination mops up excess oils leaving a mattified texture to the skin for a flawless shine free finish.
