Benefit 'Hello Flawless!' Foundation Preview

Lisa showing us the fabulous new foundation, on Benefit Ireland's newest Benefit team member Gillian!
Morning ladies! I was very lucky to have been invited to an oh-so fabulous 'Hello Flawless! Oxegen WOW' Benefit foundation launch, in Brown Thomas last week. I absolutely adore Benefit as a brand, and every event I've attended of theirs has been so fun and enjoyable. This event was technically Benefit Ireland's first blogger-exclusive event, so us lucky gals who were invited along felt trés special indeed.
Benefit's head trend and makeup artist, Lisa-Potter Dixon (she's so fab) talked us through Benefit's newest creation; they're first ever liquid foundation. It's been in the works for years, and finally it's arrived for us Bene-babes to pounce on. 'Hello Flawless! Oxygen WOW' (mouthful, I know) isn't just any liquid foundation however; it gives you luminosity and a natural glow, whilst offering buildable coverage, anti-aging properties and has a fantastic SPF of 25 - what's not to love?! It's available in 9 different shades - the lightest 'Ivory' ACTUALLY matches my skintone btw. It comes with a hygienic pump and snazzy bottle of course - Benefit's packaging never ceases to amaze me! It retails at €34, which is quite dear but for all of the qualities the foundation has to offer, I think it's worth it. 'Hello Flawless!' launches on March 31st, but we were lucky enough to get this sneak-peak before it hits the shelves. As far as first impressions go? I adore this foundation! I'm constantly on the hunt for a new foundation to try and test out, and I'm dying to get my paws on this to give a solid go.
I had a blast at this event, I must say.. I always adore blogger events, chatting to my fellow bloggers is always so much fun and I always meet someone new at them! The restaurant downstairs in BT's served the most delicious nibbles (myself and Dee ate around half of the tray, I'm sure) and yummy champagne. The Benefit team are truly inspirational and passionate about their work. I'd sure love to work for Benefit myself!
If we weren't spoilt enough, we were each given a complimentary 'Hervana' blusher as a gift. It's Benefit's newest blusher, that is just HEAVENLY! I shall have a review up later this week on it, fret not. (We're also getting a complimentary bottle of 'Hello Flawless!' sent out to us soon to try and test out, so keep an eye out for a big review on that baby also.)
Myself and the wonderful Dee, from Viva Adonis.
