I was invited by the sweetie pies at Benefit Beauty Cosmetics to preview the new Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation, which officially launches this March. As most of you know (and can probably tell, haha), I'm a light makeup-user. The extent of my daily beauty routine is mascara, lip gloss, eyeliner, and sometimes some eyeshadow or bronzer. However, as of late, I've been really intrigued by different products and all the ways to experiment with makeup. I have to admit that I have been blessed with good skin (thanks, mom!), so foundation and concealers have been somewhat of a foreign concept for me. But, when I do have a blemish here and there, I struggle to find something to cover it up. Because my skin is so virgin to powders and foundations, it's important for me to find something that won't leave me with an allergic reaction. When my skin is upset with what I've put on, you can bet that it lets me know. So, natural products that allow my skin to breathe are of the utmost importance. Cue Benefit's Hello Flawless Foundation. Oil-free and with an oxygen hydrating complex, Benefit's Hello Flawless is amazingly light, airy, and breathable. It honestly feels as though your face is wearing nothing on it!

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation is SPF 25 PA+++, contains Vitamin C and E derivatives known to prevent the signs of aging, helps protect against environmental stresses, and helps to boost cellular respiration for a "plumping up" effect. There are nine different shades -- three lights, three mediums, and three darks. Each shade corresponds with Benefit's Hello Flawless powders, which makes it that much easier to "choose" and "use." So, for the women out there who are looking for barely there makeup, I truly recommend trying out Benefit Cosmetics. Your skin will illuminate with flawless beauty!
Special thanks to Kate and Annie for inviting me to preview the new line! Please note that while I was provided with complementary Hello Flawless Oxygen Liquid Foundation, these are my own honest opinions.
