Benefit Cosmetics Finally has a Liquid Foundation!


One of the really awesome things about being a beauty blogger is getting invited to special beauty events where I get to preview new products while getting to hang out with my beauty blogging buddies. Last night, Benefit Cosmetics introduced their brand new liquid foundation, Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup at their Chestnut boutique in San Francisco.

My Color: "I'm All the Rage" Beige
Benefit Cosmetics has finally developed it's very own liquid foundation. Hello Flawless is a medium to full coverage foundation that feels like a tinted moisturizer, but covers just like a liquid should, without drawing attention to any fine lines or wrinkles. This formulation is pumped with Vitamin C and E, which helps keep any signs of aging in check. It also helps prevent any new sun damage with its SPF 25 PA +++. The Oxygen Wow Hydrating Complex inside the foundation delivers oxygen to the skin, giving it an all over "plumping up" effect.

Hello Flawless is oil-free so it wont clog your pores. The foundation is available in nine different shades. These shades also correspond with Benefit's  "Hello Flawless!" SPF 15. If you already know your shade in the powder, color matching will be a cinch for the liquid counterpart. These two products go hand-in-hand together. "Hello Flawless!" powder is perfect for setting the liquid foundation, keeping mid-afternoon shine at bay and makes for easy sun protection reapplication throughout the day, without messing up your makeup application.

I had myself color matched at the event and found that my color is "I'm all the Rage" Beige. This color is considered to be the true medium out of all nine shades. Sounds about right for my skin tone. The artist who color matched me also touched up my makeup using Hello Flawless mixed with a little Girl Meets Pearl. The two products together really brightened up my skin and gave it a nice, healthy glow.

Eager to try Benefit's brand new liquid foundation? Hello Flawless will be available wherever Benefit Cosmetics are sold in March 2012.

  1. I'm so excited about this foundation! I have been trying to find swatches of it to see which would be my perfect shade. What shade do you think will suit my NC30 skin tone?

    1. I am also NC30 and use Benefit's Hello Flawless Powder in "I'm cute as a bunny HONEY" so that shade should be a match for us.

  2. Hi Lilly! I wear NC35 in MAC foundations and the "I'm All the Rage" Beige shade matches me perfectly. I hope that helps.
