Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation ~ Review + Swatches

I was recently given the opportunity to test out Oxygenetix's Oxygenating Foundation and I'm excited to share my thoughts on this very innovative product!

Here's a description as found on Oxygenetix's website:

Unlike other foundations, Oxygenetix can be applied to skin immediately following C02 laser resurfacing, micro-needling, chemical peels, injectables, IPL, laser hair removal, facelift, rhinoplasty and more to conceal any redness, scarring or bruising to the skin. It can also be applied over rosacea, wounded/injured skin, acne, cracked/dry skin and various other skin conditions. You can even wear it while working out because it allows your skin to breathe!

Some other features and benefits (as found on Oxyenetix's website) include:

Oxygentix Oxygenating Foundation is available in 14 shades and in two undertone categories; blue and yellow. Don't be put off by the name; it won't oxidize into an orange mess on your face (that's what came to my mind when I first heard the name). Just throwing that out there..

I chose the shade Opal which is the lightest shade available with yellow undertones.

The formula has the perfect consistency; it's thick enough to provide coverage but thin enough that it's easy to spread. I applied it with my fingers, foundation brush, oval brush as well as with a real techniques sponge. Each method provides a different level of coverage and finish.

Swatch blended out
My favourite application tool for this foundation is my oval brush. It applies evenly, with fuller coverage and gives an airbrushed finish.

When applied with a damp beauty sponge, you get medium coverage with an even finish. If you want fuller coverage, you will need to apply a second layer.

I found that the use of a regular foundation brush yielded uneven results and when applied with my fingers the coverage was very light, similar to a BB cream.

It's important to note that this foundation doesn't dry quickly, which allows for a second layer if needed. The finish is somewhere between satin and demi-matte and not at all flat. It does dry a bit tacky, so I like to set it with a translucent setting powder (which also helps it to wear longer.)

When worn with primer, powder and setting spray I got around 6 hours of wear before it started to separate in my t-zone. Without primer or powder, I got about 4-5 hours out of it. Oxygenetix Oxygenating foundation feels very comfortable on the skin and looks beautiful. I will be posting some selfies with me wearing it on my Instagram very soon so make sure to follow me on there to see it in action!
