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! :)

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.

Finally found my foundation
After years of searching for foundation that is just right for my skin - I've finally found it.
My skin is dry. This foundation forgives it.
The base of this pump bottle comes up as you dispense so there's no wastage !!
A little goes a long way. Even and medium coverage, I've never seen my face so clear and even.
Goes on smooth and doesn't cake.
It is perfect for my skin. I wear 'Ivory' as I'm quite pale, It has a yellow base to it which is perfect.
Please don't stop making this foundation benefit ! Lol.

Best in Beauty 2013
I had a sample of this foundation, and although the sample was the wrong color for me, I am going to purchase this, as it has a beautiful finish, applies evenly, has great coverage, and keeps my oily skin at bay. Can't wait to pick one of these up and get color matched properly next time I'm at a Benefit counter.

Oil-free Coverage all day
I have oily skin, wear makeup everyday and am outdoors most of the time so this product really solved all my problems. With an SPF of 25 it does its job in sun-protection and goes on the skin so smoothly. It is oil-free preventing my skin to get even oilier gives great coverage and lasts all day - this product has saved me!

I was so excited when this foundation first came out because I usually love Benefit products, however I found this foundation to be extremely oily on my skin! In some areas I also broke out!!!! And I don't normally break out.
In my opinion this foundation is not worth the $$$$ you fork out. Sorry Benefit maybe next time.
(I'm giving it 3 stars because I usually LOVE Benefit's products and I know that the foundation works for some and not for others)

i was pretty hoping to like this foundation but was really let down. i have a fair skin tone with pink undertones and boy did this make me look orange! i would recommend this for the beauties with yellow undertones. i also found the staying power to be quite bad and my face looked like an oil slick after a few hours of wear. the coverage wasn't great either, i have fairly good skin but it wasn't enough to cover even my mild blemishes. i do love the packaging tho, it is a pump bottle and the bottom comes upside the packaging as the product is used which eliminates waste. Expanding the colour range would be good!
