Benefit's Oxygen Wow Foundation...Is It Wow?

I got a deluxe sample of Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup (boy that's a mouthful) in my Birchbox a few months back.
Disclosure: Birchbox is a paid subscription. You pay each month and receive deluxe samples via mail. I did not receive this item free, nor was I compensated for this review. My opinions are my own, as always ;)  If you are interested in joining Birchbox and would like me to get credit for referring you, there is an affiliate link on the top right side bar of this blog. Click away!
I really like most of Benefit's stuff, so I had high hopes for this foundation. I just hoped it happened to be the right shade for my skin. And it WAS. Yay!
So, over the last month or so, I've thrown in using it repeatedly among my other foundations. I wanted to give it time to see how it performed.
Here's what my face looks like with nothing on it (left) and then with Wow on (right):

Freeman Facial Paper Masks Fail

I bought these items through my Ipsy subscription. I pay for the subscription, and therefore paid for these items. I receive no compensation for this post. My opinion is entirely my own.
Generally, I like Freeman's masks. Over the years I've bought several different kinds and enjoyed using them. I was excited to receive these 3 different masks in my September Ipsy Bag.

Want White Teeth? Will Distinctly White Work?

I received a free product from BzzAgent.com. They sent me a box of Luster Premium White Distinctly White Dual Action Whitening System to try out, free of charge. I received no compensation for this post. My opinion is entirely my own.
It's been a while since I had a teeth whitening treatment. Like, several YEARS. I need it.
I don't smoke or drink wine, but I do drink 2 cups of coffee every day. And I eat tomatoes and other such "culprits" that supposedly discolor your teeth. So, yeah, even though I always use whitening toothpaste regularly, I could definitely use a good whitening procedure.
That's why I was so excited to have received the Distinctly White System.
