Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow

Okay, so if you want a review on this product you might as well head over to my review on Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation! I can't see many differences between that product and this one...I'd even go as far to say I much prefer my Rimmel foundation.

It's another let down from Benefit for me.. :(

It's not a bad foundation at all..but not an amazing one either. It's just not at the standard that Benefit describes itself to be. It's consistency is lotion-like - reasonably thin. I doesn't really have a strong smell...It's just fresh but not overwhelmingly so and it's not really that noticeable. It's coverage is pretty good but it, again, doesn't match up to its price tag. This foundation doesn't stay on particularly long even with primer, I mean, it lasts a few hours but then you could wipe your face with a make up removal wipe and not really get much on the wipe...which I don't understand - it's as though it disappears!!!

The main let down is that it is said to be brightening and it just isn't! I was gutted. My Rimmel foundation, my bM foundation and the MAC foundation I tried the other day brightened my face more than this one did. Bold claim, Benefit, very bold claim!

I don't know if it's the primer that I used or my skin type that made this product such a let down for me, but whatever it is, I'm really disappointed. I think that it's decent(isn) but I paid £7 for my Rimmel one and it's just as good if not better. Overpriced!

Let me know if you've tried this and if so, what you think to it! I hope that some of you have had amazing experiences with it :)
