Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation
Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Soft Blur FoundationI am a fan of the hello happy soft blur foundation, and an even bigger fan of this brightening foundation formula. For me it has a bit more coverage than the soft blur. If you have oily or combo skin I recommend setting with a powder so it lasts longer through the day.
GoodThis feels weightless on my skin and looks so natural. Really like it when I don't want much coverage
BeautifulIt is beautiful. It smells of perfume, it bothered me a little, but for those who don't have problems with smell it's worth it.
PerfectPerfect base The skin is very beautiful, natural and uniform.
Didn't work for my dry skinThis product just didn't work for my dry skin. I tried it with a few different primers and it just didn't last or look as good as I expected. I would recommend for oily skin.
DivineI just love this foundation. Gives a very natural clean skin look while still evening out the skin tone. It controlled my oiliness quite well and the colour (fair neutral) matched perfectly with my skin, I have fair/medium skin with yellow undertones. I can see I’m going to get a lot of use out of this one.
AverageI have oily/combo skin and this product seemed to apply nicely but later on in the day was just an oily mess, even set with powder. I love that it is more of a natural foundation but the look of it after a couple hours is not the best plus, the shade range is not too great.
Not too badI expected a better foundation from reading all the reviews . I found that if you have dry skin this foundation gets absorbed in the dry areas and makes them more visible . The subtle ness of this foundation is ok.
I feel this foundation belongs to a supermarket brand .
I much prefer The Ordinary . Cheaper and better .
Not my favouriteStill great! More of a tinted moisturiser if you ask me. great for everyday. Works well on combo oily skin. i think it would work on any skin type. If you are looking for fuller coverage - not for you.
GreatThe best foundation ever invented.. I love this foundation, the formula is really easy to apply, it's light to medium coverage but it's very buildable and it lasts 12+ hours, The best thing about it, it doesn't leave your skin oily!!!
Great foundation for everyday!Love this foundation! Glided on perfect. Great coverage for everyday. Looks great on oilier skin - only thing is have to set it. Buildable coverage also.
I love the coverage and textureAll the key ingredients in making the perfect foundation, great coverage, nice and lightweight on the skin, with an excellent colour range. I recommend giving it a try.
No Brainerisn't full coverage but it still makes my skin look really nice and i adore the packaging. So great for every day wear particularly in summer!
more of a bb cream!Nice and creamy! more of a bb cream than foundation but still super cute and comes in a cute little bottle!
Awesomereccomend for oily skin, does indeed blur my skin with medium coverage and sets beautifully.
HOLY GRAILI don't really prefer a full coverage foundation. So this is perfect. It lasts all day. It feels amazing on, isn't thick, doesn't clog pores, doesn't get chunky or cakey. I love the hell out of this. I like that I can build it up in places I do want a bit more coverage. Basically, if you haven't tried this, you need to. I promise you, you'll love it.
More of a BB Cream than FoundationThis is a nice lightweight product however the coverage is very low and I would compare this to a BB/CC cream. Also, I have oily skin and this seemed to fall apart around the nose and mouth area.
More a BB than a foundationI do prefer a bb/cc cream so thought i'd really like this foundation but it is lacking for the price. I like that it is a thin liquid but i found it streaked quite easily so had to be careful to blend it in which is a bit annoying for something that doesn't have much coverage. Its not bad its just not awesome unfortunately.
good for aged skin tooi used it a couple of times from my sister's makeup and i was amazed how this foundation felt on my aged skin. it gives a smooth finish and is totally buildable and i found that it has just the right amount of hydration which is good for oily skin too.
Medium NeutralI bought this expecting something more on the medium size of light-medium coverage so I found it didn't provide the right level of coverage that I need but it did leave a very pretty natural finish and looked nice under a setting powder. Not for me, but could recommend if you were after a very light finish.
Cute but not for meI just found this didn't give me enough coverage, also found it separated on my face, packaging is super cute but didn't work for me
Not for meI am particularly picky about what foundations I like, this one is a miss for me. Too sheer in coverage and separates after a few hours and goes oily in my skin
good for traveling or sheer coveragegood everyday and travel foundation and the packaging is good if you're on the go.its nice for the dewy sheer foundation and it doesn't make my skin breakout and i have combination skin
Blur awayBlurs away imperfections and makes my skin feel great
greatisn't full coverage but it still makes my skin look really nice and i adore the packaging
amazingIt looks adorable and makes my skin look nice and smoth
Smells kind of weirdI didn’t hate this foundation but I definitely didn’t love it. I liked the colour I was matched to but when I wore it all day I felt as though my skin looked a little patchy and my forehead looked like the makeup was sliding around. I don’t like the scent either!!
Leaves skin congestedI have recently been on the hunt for a new foundation, but I'm a difficult shopper -I have sensitive combination skin and a yellow light skin tone. The colour I tried was really nice, and the texture was light and can be built up to a medium coverage. However, the makeup left my skin quite congested and I'm not a fan of the smell either!
Super Cute Packaging buuut...I adore the packaging of this foundation and it is lightweight and not too cakey, however i am unsure of the coverage and texture. It just didnt sit on my face well sadly!
Great light foundationNice and light, covers imperfections well and isn't cakey!
Gorgeous on the skin!This foundation is great as a light-medium coverage. It really makes the skin glow, making it a perfect natural look foundation.
So prettyThis foundation made my skin look really nice and clear. Isn't full coverage but It's still really good. I also love the packaging, so easy to apply to the face. I would recommend it :)
You’ll get asked what foundation you’re wearing... a lotI wore this on Christmas and all day everyone was saying how great my foundation/skin looked! This paired with a mineral powder to set is seriously the bees knees! I wouldn’t say it’s full coverage but it is buildable and not cakey. First benefit foundation I’ve tried and I was not disappointed! Both my sisters have since bought it haha!
greatLooks natural and blurs imperfections
a very light weight foundationi am a huge fan of this foundation. it is very light weight and does not dries my skin out. i have light and dry skin and no matter what foundation i use i end up drying out my skin. but this foundation has worked wonders on my face. truly recommended. (i use brush to apply foundation)
GreatThis is a great foundation for everyday use. Its super light coverage and looks natural
Good!Very nice, even coverage and a very light product. The amount of product in the bottle isn't fantastic for the price, but the squeeze bottle is nice. Be careful with it because it's easy to squeeze too much out though. Will likely repurchase when there's a promotion going though. Not HG but still pleased with purchase
Favourite foundationI am going to be buying bottle after bottle of this stuff! It’s amazing, one drop covers my whole face. It glides on so smoothly and feels so lightweight...I love it! If I’m going out at night I’ll use a couple of drops. Easily the best foundation I’ve ever used.
Great for a natural lookI am not a liquid foundation wearer and had actually stopped wearing foundation all together after years of using pressed mineral powder. I have pale to medium combination skin easily break out with new products. I first received this as sample and loved the way I could still see my freckles and my skin had a softer look. I now have the full size and will repurchase. It does not break me out, looks very natural, blends well, mixes with my moisturiser well when I would like less coverage and comes off easily with my cleansing oil. Love it.
Fabulous colour matchI have fair skin prone to redness, and am always struggling to find a foundation shade that gives me good coverage without dreaded jaw line - my neck is extremely fair so finding a colour that covered my redness but also matches my underlying ski tone is a nightmare. Fair cool (01) is amazing. One of the best colour matches i have ever had. I have to take off a star though, because i can only use this occasionally. If i use it consistently for more than a couple of days it can aggravate my redness/dryness. Go to foundation for special occasions though.
Wanted to like this....I really wanted to like this product, it had received heaps of great reviews and comparisons to high end foundations. For me, it didn't live up to the hype. It does not last very long on the skin, it sits on top of the skin and is quite noticeable. The plus is that there are quite a few colours in the range..
good productgreat foudation looks natural but i hate the packaging as it looks cheap
Skin-like, but a bit too shinyI like how lightweight this is, making the overall result look really natural/skin-like. It reminds me a lot of the Nudestix Tinted Blur stick, but with a wider shade range! I like this in colder weather as it can make my face look too greasy when it’s hot out. Needs a good primer like Hourglass or The Ordinary for better shine control.
Great foundationI received a sample of this and I loved it because it looks so natural and blurs imperfection well!
Blew my expectations.Love this , great coverage , good shades for those with more olive complexions. Builds really well and still looks natural.
Love it!!I love the foundation so so much, but I wish there were more shades.
Nice, sheer coverageI like this product for its easy, build-able application. It is quite sheer. I had to add a bit of shade altering solution to mine because the palest colour wasn't quite pale enough for my Caspar-like complexion.
Fantastic easy to wear foundationI really struggle to find colours that match my skin tone. This is a perfect everyday foundation that is easily buildable. I even add it to another one if I have a special event and the coverage is great.
Very breathable and light. I have olive skin with a yellow/pink tone (odd i know) and I use the shade 5. Its perfect! Note- it does oxidise and go a little darker. So 5 was perfect for me.
GreatIn my experience, this foundation provides light to medium coverage with a semi matte finish. I would not build it past medium coverage though, it risks looking cakey after two layers. Would recommend getting the mini to try first, do note that it is just 6ml though.
Feels so soft and lightThis foundation gave a really nice natural coverage and didn’t feel heavy at all. I love using it for daily activities. I just wish there were more shades. I would totally buy again!
So cute!It feels really light on the skin. Was definitely underwhelmed in that department. Packaging was cute.
SoIt is worth the investment, great for no makeup makeup look. Packaging was cute.
Not light enoughI'm fair, but not "can't find my shade" fair. I tried shade 1 in the sample pack and it was too dark! Super disappointing as it applied well for a light coverage foundation.
A nice light foundationI tried this make up after seeing great reviews of it all over social media. I didn't love this foundation, but it was really nice for a light coverage day look. I found it clung a little bit to my dry patches, but might be better in the warmer weather!
Good coverageI liked this foundation and found that it had good coverage on my skin. It was great that there were so many different shades in the sample that was sent out. I was able to experiment with a few of them.
This is just wowThis literally blurred my skin like face tune. I am so impressed with this product! I will buy more as soon as I run out.
GreatThis gives me a great natural light finish and the coverage lasts almost all day.
New fav foundationThis foundation is perfect for everyday as it is light and blends in perfectly! It's a medium coverage with a very natural slightly glowly finish. Would 100% recconmend
No good on oily skinI was so disappointed with this product. It lasted about 2 hours before separating, getting shiny and highlighting my pores. Awful ! I have an oily t zone and enlarged pores.
Clearly this product is not for me.
Great product!I have combination skin and it works beautifully with it. It does exactly as it says and provides a sheer to medium coverage depending on how much you build the product. Sits wonderfully on the skin, and survives well in humid conditions. A lighter alternative to more full coverage foundations and smells lovely! I would definitely recommend.
Definitely not the best, but not the worst eitherI am pleasantly surprised with this Hello Happy Soft Blur foundation! I thought this would just be light coverage on me coz it is runny and sheer, but it actually gave me very nice healthy medium coverage that is not too matte. The spf is a great add on too.
Great alternativeI have combination skin but I also have rosacea. I need a foundation that is light feeling but also covers the redness I get on my skin. I used Chanel foundation, which was very effective, but it's very expensive. This is also expensive, but slightly less and it covered just as well. I would purchase this again.
Perfect Summer Coverage!This is the perfect light-medium coverage foundation for summer. Blends perfectly and just feels like moisturizer-- plus it lets those freckles peek through!
Light coverThis is a nice light cover foundation. I dont mind the formula but it is a very light formula.
Love the formulanice coverage, not to heavy so perfect for everyday wear. Smooths out the skin and has a soft dewy/matte finish. Ok shade range too
Light coverage that doesn't lastLight coverage that doesn't last all that long. Looks nice with a nice finish, though. I found it hard to be get a good shade match.
Great Foundation!I received a sample of this and I loved it. I used the Light Neutral (03) shade and it looked so natural and blurred imperfections. Will definitely be purchasing this!
Not the best but I like itDefinitely has a blurring effect which I like. pretty natural looking coverage which lasts all day. Shade range could be improved though.
Not a dupe for Chanel Vitalumier Aqua!I really wanted to love this foundation, as i am a huge fan of Chanel's Vitalumier Aqua. While this isnt a terrible foundation, its staying power is not great, by the end of the day it didnt look like i was wearing makeup. Upon application it was not dewy, but not matt and even out my skin tone. Good for those who want minimal makeup.
not badi got a recommendation for a my shade and i decided to try it out. i love that its in a cute plastic bottle which makes it perfect for travel and if i dropped it, no problems like the other glass foundation bottles. delivery is great too since its through a little pointy tip, perfect for controlled pouring. the foundation performs pretty well under most conditions but i won't use it in summer as it tends to separate if conditions get too warm or humid. just for reference, i have oily skin and my default foundation is Nars.
A nice product for more youthful skin.I'm in my late 30's and this one just isn't for me! That said...... It is a gorgeous soft blur, somewhat matte, medium coverage foundation that would look fantastic in your twenties! Not enough dew for me though!
natural finish, good for dry skinsuper hydrating and makes my skin look blurred, not full coverage is more natural but i love it for winter when my skin is dry
It was ok.I received a sample of all of the shades of this foundation to try, which I thought was pretty cool. Judging by the packaging and my skin tone, I expected to be around shade 3. When I opened it, it was quite dark and I ended up being shade 1. It applied nicely and a little goes a long way. The coverage of my acne skin was good for a sheer - medium foundation although my skin did start to get really oily after only a couple hours wear and I didn’t notice much of a blur effect.
Nice blurring effect as the name claimsI really like this new foundation, it definitely blurs the skin and creates a soft focus look. The coverage is quite nice and natural too which is good.
Quite dryingI have dry skin and want to cover my sunspots and scars. I received the sample pack of this with all different shades. This product is very matte and so it accentuates the dry spots around my nose and mouth. The colour range is fantastic but the longevity of wear and coverage is not adequate for my lifestyle. It might be suited for more oily skin types who don't need foundation to last the whole day.
OKThis is OK. It is a medium coverage, matte foundation that is perhaps a little too matte for anyone over 35. It also dries very quickly, so there isn't much spreadability. I don't really see where the "soft blur" comes in, to be honest. It doesn't seem to accentuate large pores, but there's not that much of a 'blurring' effect. Overall, it's OK.
super hydratingomg it applied on dehydrated skin like so smoothly. I think its my fav foundation now, no cakeyness, its the best and very blendable.
Would purchase!I like the simplicity and light texture of this foundation - great for people that don't like to wear make up (like myself). I have dry skin that is also sensitive and I also don't have any issues.
Didn't work for meAt first I really loved this foundation, it went on nice and felt really good on my skin, super lightweight. But as the day went on I released firstly the colour (lightest shade) was still a tad dark for me and it had also started to separate on my face after about 4-5 hours. For someone with good skin, and not pale AF like me i think this would be a great foundation. On a side note, i really loved the fact Benefit gave a 6 shade sample! This is the first time ive ever seen this! Such a great idea!!
Light CoverageNice light coverage, leaves a really flawless finish and feels great on the skin.
Light coverageReceived a sample of this with my last order, great light weight foundation for everyday wear
Nice light coverageI found this foundation to be very light coverage (as advertised) but could be easily built up to a medium coverage. While it looks very natural and seemed to stay in place for most of the day it didn’t really have enough coverage for me as I have rosacea and need more of a medium to full coverage foundation to balance out the redness.
Very light weightDecided to try this for the first time went for shade 02. I also have extremely sensitive skin so most uk foundations tend to bring me out in a slight rash. I was so pleased from the start. Not only did it provide minimal coverage. It left my skin feeling very soft and so far zero rash after use and it lasts throughout the day even though I’m a chef so prone to high heat daily. Absolutely love this and will definitely be using it again
Foundation for someone who doesn't usually like foundation!I never wear foundation, usually I just put primer on after moisturiser, or if Im going all out I might add a bit of concealer.
I have combo skin and usually I just end up getting dry bits on my cheeks & shine patches breaking through on my forehead & nose.
I tried this foundation through a sample and was pleasantly surprised. It is light enough so it seems to sit well on my skin and also doesn't look caked on. Kind of like my skin with a healthier glow.
Id recommend for anyone looking for a natural look, but Im not sure that its that full on coverage foundation look that some people prefer.
Get it!After trying a sample of each shade, I ordered shade #2. Besides the ultra cute packaging, I fell in love with the great coverage and the way it takes emphasis away from blemishes. My skin looked even and had a healthy glow. The consistency was good and the texture so lightweight and breathable on the skin. It wore well all day and gave me confidence.
A good sheer, matte foundation but...I have combination skin and bought this for a natural-look foundation.
The consistency is fairly runny and you only need a small blob to cover the face decently. Overall I'm happy with how it looks! Does just enough to make my complexion look smooth and even. This would become by regular foundation but....
I found out after buying this that benefit isn't 100% cruelty free. :-( Therefore I won't be repurchasing until they are! Such a pity!
Good foundationI received sampels of this of quite a range of colours and was able to pick one which matched my skin perfectly, the foundation has a good consistency and has a light
which can be built to a medium coverage i have quite a few acne scars so needed to use concealer to cover them up but this foundation is great and breathable to blur minor imperfections, i think its better suited for warmer months though as i have combination skin which can get dry patches in winter and it can emphasize them a bit.
Soft BlurringLives up to the claims, but minimum shade range. I love the formula.
Not for meI purchased this in shade 2 which was a great match for my pale, slightly warm complexion. I definitely wouldn't go any darker.
However I am a bit disappointed with the consistency and coverage. It clearly states that it is a sheer-medium coverage, which is perfectly fine if that is all you are after. It seemed to emphasise dry spots and dry a bit powdery.
Hello Happy Review !I just received my foundation and I have to be honest I only purchased this due to the cuteness over load of the packaging ! I stayed up till 4am watching reviews on this foundation. There has been some mixed reviews about this foundation but overall good reviews. Others have found the light/medium coverage to be a con but I love this type of coverage. As I’m getting older (35) I’m more confident in my own skin so I don’t have to wear full coverage makeup. This is sooo light weight even when applying a second layer to get the medium coverage. I purchased the shade 5 which I thought was a great match, I went into Benefit and asked what shade I should get. Although when I did compare the shades to other brands using the ‘find your shade’ tool I was advised to get the shade 7 so I highly recommend going to a store that sells it and get them to colour match you. There are only 12 shades but they are versatile as claimed to be. Highly recommended this foundation for everyday, summer wear and don’t limit yourself people with oily skin ! I believe it works on both dry and oily skin !!
buildablelight coverage but buildable to medium, nice finish and stays all day
Light coverageThis is a great foundation that gives light coverage. It can be built to a mediumish coverage but looks good as light for me. Very breathable too.
AmazingThis is now my HG foundation. Not too heavy and looks so natural on. My skin looks flawless when I wear this foundation and I've had so many compliments on how healthy and glowing my skin looks when I wear this. Couldn't recommend it more and an absolute bargain to some of the foundations I've tried in the past!
Light, natural coverageThis product is great because it has a number of different shades and is long-lasting without being heavy enough to clog the skin.
Everyday - Natural look but Medium CoverageFinally a foundation that doesnt come in glass so travel safe and non-breakable - Happy days!!!
I went for colour 4 to give me alittle more colour for my light skin with a neutral undertone.
It is lightweight and has a natural look but medium coverage which is perfect for everyday wear.
Good value for money!!!
Adore Beauty StaffI found this lightweight foundation great for everyday use and I noticed it also layers really nicely if you need more coverage in certain areas. I just use my hands to apply it, so it's really quick and easy! My skin type is combination/oily so I just powder a tiny bit on the center of my face and it has a nice semi matte finish :)
