amazing foundation


finally found a foundation that works for my skin and a colour that matches my fake tan

Most Helpful Criticism

Not for me


I originally got a mini sample size of this and loved it for the week that I used it, which led me to purchase a full size. However, I actually find that I don't love this product, which is a shame because I feel it has received such good reviews. I find it sits on top of my skin and doesn't really sink in, despite being a more natural and light coverage foundation. I'll still continue to use this product, as I don't have any adverse reactions to it, I just think it's not the right product for me and will not repurchase it.
  1. Not the best


    I love this brand but this foundation wasn’t what i expected. It is super lightweight and the coverage isn’t the best until you layer it with concealer and powder. For the size of the bottle the price is too much. Needs to be shaken before every use as the formula is very runny. Won’t be buying this again - i’ve used drugstore foundations that are way better than this one.
  2. good product


    has nice coverage, i'd say medium coverage but i found it creased a bit on my forehead quite easily.
  3. satin


    satiny finish and blurs my skin. medium coverage on me. I like the nozzle because I can control exactly what comes out
  4. I wanted to love this


    I really wanted to love this. I got this as a sample size and tired it for two days. I loved how it looked on my skin, dewey with just enough coverage. I bought the full size and then noticed that I really started not to like it. It creases in strange places and wipes off really easy. I like the colour system and he packaging too so it is a bit of a miss in the end.
  5. Soft


    This is my go to for most days. Super lightweight and easy to apply
  6. amazing foundation


    finally found a foundation that works for my skin and a colour that matches my fake tan
  7. nice


    This is a very lightweight foundation with light to medium coverage. I used this for daily makeup because it light Has a matte finish and look like your skin but better.
  8. Not for me


    I have oily skin and this goes patchy during the day which is a shame because it is really lightweight on the skin when first applied.
  9. Great


    This is a great go-to foundation. Medium to buildable coverage great for every day.
  10. Luminous and quick to apply


    I wear this for work because it’s light coverage and super quick to apply in the morning. It doesn’t really stick to any dry patches, and lasts well throughout the day. Definitely recommend.
  11. Fantastic, light, natural cover


    I'm someone who enjoys a sheer foundation without looking overly 'done' - not a fan of powdery finish or caked on look. Traditionally I've used BB or CC creams, before venturing to light foundations for a bit more cover. No matter how many brands I try, I always come back to Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur.
    The finish is light without being greasy, covers imperfections without looking caky or ...

  12. Not bad


    This wasn't bad for my oily skin but it did not stay as long as i would have liked it too.
  13. OK


    Don't love nor hate this foundation. It is a light to medium coverage, I find that it applies quite patchy and I have tried using both brush and sponge. Finish is nice, however don't recommend for long wear as it becomes really oily.
  14. A bit above average


    I have combination skin. The finish is a bit matte. Great if you want a natural look as it isn't full coverage; more on the sheer side. It does cling onto dry patches but it can be fixed with applying facial oil mixed with moisturiser prior to using this. It helped me a lot.. The first time i used this i bought it in shade 2. Finished it then purchased it in shade 4 because i had a slight tan. Not...

  15. Good foundation


    Gives natural sheer coverage, is lightweight and is easy to blend.
  16. Definitely Recommend


    This has the exact coverage I was looking for and doesn't feel like I have makeup on at all! I hate the caked on feeling and this just feels like I put on a light lotion. Awesome coverage and light weight. No caking feeling and Gore in evenly
  17. nice


    This foundation blends really nice that creates that naturally flawless face. Its very lightweight.
  18. Love this


    Good for everyday wear. Works well for dry to combination skin which is what I have and stays on fairly all day. Has to be touched up with powder if you are planning to be outside.
  19. Too pink


    Not a wide enough shade range to accomodate those who don’t have pink undertones. Really wanted to love it as the packaging and light texture are great. Much better foundations out there for a fraction of the price. Waste of my $.
  20. natural


    This foundation blends like a dream and creates the most perfect, naturally flawless face!
  21. A bit oily


    I like the light finish of this foundation, however after a couple of hours i got really oily, so make sure you powder well.
  22. Love love love


    I love this product . It doesn’t dry my out or make my face can’t. Immediately bought a second bottle. I used the poreprofessional foundation before. This one is thicker than poreprofessional but goes on very smooth and light
  23. Nic


    Really good coverage for a BB cream, the cream blends well and stays put all day. Very breathable but reasonable coverage. One of the better BB creams I have tried. Would recommend this Product !!!

  25. Great for day to day!


    It's a nice day time foundation, it evens out my skintone with out covering anything up. At first it was patchy on my dry skin, however after trying it with a primer it went on perfectly!

    Absolutely love the packaging and the thin texture, it's so easy to spread and I only end up using about 5-6 drops.

    I've given it a 3.5 star rating due to the low SPF rating and lack of...

  26. Still my favourite foundation


    I love this foundation. It’s light and controls oiliness really well. Skin feels natural and looks smooth. J always get compliments when I wear this. Coverage is light to medium. I apply it with a large brush and it gives me a beautiful airbrushed finish.
  27. Beautiful foundation, not ideal for elder millenials


    I have some very specific requirements when it comes to foundation. Well, mainly one very specific requirment. Apart from the obivous- good colour match, longeviety, lightweight, good coverage- I need to be able to apply it exclusively at red lights using the little mirror behind my sun shade while driving to work.
    The dream morning is of course that I get up early, get ready for work, do m...

  28. Great product


    Love this on my skin. Feels so lightweight
  29. Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation


    I 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.
  30. Good


    This feels weightless on my skin and looks so natural. Really like it when I don't want much coverage
  31. Beautiful


    It 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.
  32. Perfect


    Perfect base The skin is very beautiful, natural and uniform.
  33. Didn't work for my dry skin


    This 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.
  34. Divine


    I 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.
  35. Average


    I 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.
  36. Not too bad


    I 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 .
  37. Not my favourite


    Still 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.
  38. Great


    The 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!!!
  39. 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.
  40. I love the coverage and texture


    All 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.
  41. No Brainer


    isn'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!
  42. 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!
  43. Awesome


    reccomend for oily skin, does indeed blur my skin with medium coverage and sets beautifully.


    I 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.
  45. More of a BB Cream than Foundation


    This 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.
  46. More a BB than a foundation


    I 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.
  47. good for aged skin too


    i 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.
  48. Medium Neutral


    I 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.
  49. Cute but not for me


    I 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
  50. Not for me


    I 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
  51. good for traveling or sheer coverage


    good 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
  52. Blur away


    Blurs away imperfections and makes my skin feel great
  53. great


    isn't full coverage but it still makes my skin look really nice and i adore the packaging
  54. amazing


    It looks adorable and makes my skin look nice and smoth
  55. Smells kind of weird


    I 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!!
  56. Leaves skin congested


    I 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!
  57. 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!
  58. Great light foundation


    Nice and light, covers imperfections well and isn't cakey!
  59. 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.
  60. So pretty


    This 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 :)
  61. You’ll get asked what foundation you’re wearing... a lot


    I 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!
  62. great


    Looks natural and blurs imperfections
  63. a very light weight foundation

    perfecting skin

    i 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)
  64. Great


    This is a great foundation for everyday use. Its super light coverage and looks natural
  65. 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
  66. Favourite foundation


    I 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.
  67. Great for a natural look


    I 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, look...

  68. Fabulous colour match


    I 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 ...

  69. 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..
  70. good product


    great foudation looks natural but i hate the packaging as it looks cheap
  71. Skin-like, but a bit too shiny


    I 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.
  72. Great foundation


    I received a sample of this and I loved it because it looks so natural and blurs imperfection well!
  73. Blew my expectations.


    Love this , great coverage , good shades for those with more olive complexions. Builds really well and still looks natural.
  74. Love it!!


    I love the foundation so so much, but I wish there were more shades.
  75. Nice, sheer coverage


    I 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.
  76. Fantastic easy to wear foundation


    I 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....

  77. Great


    In 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.
  78. Feels so soft and light


    This 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!
  79. So cute!


    It feels really light on the skin. Was definitely underwhelmed in that department. Packaging was cute.
  80. So


    It is worth the investment, great for no makeup makeup look. Packaging was cute.
  81. Not light enough


    I'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.
  82. A nice light foundation


    I 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!
  83. Good coverage


    I 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.
  84. This is just wow


    This literally blurred my skin like face tune. I am so impressed with this product! I will buy more as soon as I run out.
  85. Great


    This gives me a great natural light finish and the coverage lasts almost all day.
  86. New fav foundation


    This 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
  87. No good on oily skin


    I 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.
  88. 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.
  89. Definitely not the best, but not the worst either


    I 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.
  90. Great alternative


    I 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.
  91. 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!
  92. Light cover


    This is a nice light cover foundation. I dont mind the formula but it is a very light formula.
  93. Love the formula


    nice coverage, not to heavy so perfect for everyday wear. Smooths out the skin and has a soft dewy/matte finish. Ok shade range too
  94. Light coverage that doesn't last


    Light 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.
  95. 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!
  96. Not the best but I like it


    Definitely has a blurring effect which I like. pretty natural looking coverage which lasts all day. Shade range could be improved though.
  97. 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.
  98. not bad


    i 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 i...

  99. 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!
  100. natural finish, good for dry skin


    super hydrating and makes my skin look blurred, not full coverage is more natural but i love it for winter when my skin is dry
