I Tried A Sample Of This New Foundation And Wanted To Buy It Immediately

Falling in love with a new foundation isn't something that happens often, so when it does, you'll tell anyone who'll listen. So when one of my girlfriends messaged me about the new Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation , I wanted to know more.


What's To Love?

This medium coverage foundation delivers a brighter, hydrated, flawless-looking complexion with a lightweight, natural finish. Sounds pretty good, right? But what sets Benefit's Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation apart from your usual go-to foundation?

  • It offers long-lasting medium coverage with a natural-looking satin finish

  • It feels super comfortable and breathable on the skin

  • The formula contains pigments that instantly brighten skin in any lighting

  • It also contains Hibiscus extract to help boost radiance

  • Hyaluronic acid adds and helps to maintain moisture levels

  • It's available in 12 shades from fair to deep skin tones

We Need To Know More:

I had questions. As someone who jumps between lots of different foundations, I needed to know exactly why it was worth buying - so I asked my friend to tell me more:

"My main concern is my dark under eye area, and it's extremely hard to find a foundation that properly brightens this area. I was blown away with how natural this foundation looked and felt on my skin BUT it brightened my complexion to the point where people at work were asking if I had gone away over the weekend because my skin was glowing.

It feels super lightweight on the skin and delivered the perfect “dewy finish” without looking oily. I have recommended it to anyone that will listen and can happily say I have found my new go to foundation."

What's Everyone Else Saying About It?

Great foundation


I have pale, combination skin with cool pink undertones and Shade 01 Fair is a perfect match for my skintone. On top of the Benefit Porefessional (which IMO is the best primer out there), this glides onto the skin and looks really nice with medium buildable coverage. It makes the skin look even, bright and it lasts really well when set with powder.

Pleasantly surprised


Haven’t tried Benefit foundations before but received a sample of this and fell in love. You don’t need much product to build it up and it’s very natural. I would say the coverage is medium but could be sheered out. Wear time on my skin is about 8 hours.



This foundation is AMAZING! I got a sample recently and it is fantastic. I had to buy it. It is such a natural finish but so buildable. Perfect for oily combination skin if you want something light that you can also make fuller coverage for night. Actually obsessed and highly recommend. Great colour range also.
