Benefit Oxygen Wow! Foundation Review

Shade: Toasted Beige

First Impressions:
Dewy Finish 

The shade is perfect for me!! Not too light or too dark.  Blends really well.  No annoying foundation lines- huge plus!!
Decent coverage (medium).  Feels lightweight.
Looks so natural- like my skin only better.
Did a nice job of covering up flaws (didn't have to use concealer)

Had to set with powder (MAC Studio Careblend) & had to touch up 2 additional times throughout the day because this made my face oily in the T-Zone.  I don't have this issue with my other foundations.  I never have to touch up my MAC Studio Sculpt.  (This won't be replacing that.)

Overall Thoughts:
I need something that lasts me all day at work without budging or having to touch up. This is a bit too dewy for my skin type.  I would recommend this for very dry skin or mature skin.  It would work really well.  If this didn't make me oily throughout the day, I would LOVE this foundation.  I received in a swap on Makeupalley.  I'm glad I didn't spend the money on this at Sephora.  I'll be wearing this on lazy days when I have to run errands and such.  I prefer a long lasting foundation for work.  This won't replace the MAC Studio Sculpt foundation, but it is a nice one. It just didn't work on my skin type very well.

(update: 11/18/12- I've been using this for the past week & loving it.  I set it with the MAC Studio Careblend Pressed Powder & it works well.  I will purchase this when my deluxe size runs out.)

Good Job Benefit!
