Benefit Beauty Review #2: Hello Flawless Foundation and the POREfessional

Welcome back to my Benefit review series, there's another one to go so keep a look out for more tomorrow! Today I want to introduce the Benefit POREfessional and the Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation in Ivory

This is the second time I have purchased the Benefit POREfessional as it's a great primer that helps to make your foundation look seamless. I've only tried it underneath the Benefit Hello Flawless foundation but I'm sure it works well under other foundations too. 

What I love about it is it's light and airy texture. It's a smooth, lightly tinted balm that helps to even out the surface of the skin when applied to t-zone areas such as the chin, forehead and cheeks. I also find that it stops the skin from looking oily and keeps the foundation in place throughout the day. You only need a small amount to minimise your pores so even though it's a small tube it should last a while!

Usually I keep to a similar routine with my foundation and use the Chanel Perfection Lumiere. Although I know it's a perfect colour match and coverage for me, it's also nice to have a change from time to time. The Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation is the first ever Benefit base I have tried and it's been really good so far.

If you're looking for a medium coverage foundation then this probably isn't for you as I find that it's a very lightweight foundation, hence the name 'oxygen wow'. Although a lighter coverage isn't something I'm used to, I have enjoyed using this when my skin needs a bit of a break or if I'm going for more of an off duty look. I also feel like I don't need to wear as much base makeup when it's heading towards summer time so I'm sure I'll get lots more use out of this in the coming months. I've already used half the bottle!

The colour of my foundation is Ivory and although it adds some colour to my pale skin, I think I may go for a paler shade next time as I'm really fussy about foundation and like it to be a perfect match, even if it's the palest shade there is! However, I still think the Ivory shade will be good for days when I'm wearing bronzer or a little fake tan.
