Hello To My Happy-Looking Skin with Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation!

Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation is one of my favorite "Daily Base Makeup" if I like to use liquid foundation on a daily basis.  It gives the right amount of coverage minus the heavy feel.  

Don't we all wish for that?

But several years after, I wondered why Benefit decided to come up with another base makeup called Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation.  Isn't the combination of Benefit POREfessional + Oxygen Wow Foundation enough to achieve perfect-looking skin?

The launch happened at Vanilla Cupcake Bakery a couple of weeks ago, I walked all the way from parking lot to the event location and was huffing and puffing when I saw one of my favorite Brow Wax Benegal!  She motioned me to sit on the makeup area to know the right shade for me.

I was super hesitant, I mean, I was perspiring and my skin's natural oil was suddenly appearing out of nowhere!

Then she whipped out this combination and applied Shade 3 on TOP OF EVERYTHING!  I'll tell you what happened after....for now, (bitin muna and read my review!)

Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation
Available in 12 shades (4 deep shades, 5 medium shades and 3 Light shades)

Hello YOU! This lightweight foundation evens out skintone and blurs imperfections with soft-focus optical blurring spheres. With a natural-matte finish and light-to-medium coverage, it looks like skin and feels like nothing at all. Happy looks good on you!

This line also comes with a cute sponge (sold separately)

Shade 3 is perfect for me as it has a yellow-undertone yet it doesn't make me look orange!  Just a perfect shade that fits like a glove!  

With 12 shades available, you can even mix and match to find the right shade for you!  But seriously, after seeing all the shades, I'm sure there's one for each of us!

Swatch: Shade 3


Blended Well

For most Benefit products, you can actually apply by using your fingers, for this particular product "Hello Happy", the best way to apply this is by using a sponge!  And the sponge Benefit recently launched is the perfect partner to the Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation.

It has the right bounce, texture and feel.  I like to apply using dry sponge because it gives more coverage as opposed to using the sponge damp!

Flat surface to be used on key areas around the face that needed MOST coverage using the "bouncing method".

Before and After


AMW says ---

  • Very cute packaging.  Makes me smile and happy every single time I use it!
  • The tip is sharp so I can easily control the amount of product to be dispensed.
  • The product is lightweight and easy-to-blend.
  • Has SPF.  Gives a minimal protection from the sun.
  • Light to medium coverage.  You may need concealer if you have specific spots and marks you need to cover well.  
  • Gives off a super nice, bright-skin look!  I love how my skin looks instantly lifted and fresh!
  • Gives of a demi-matte finish.  It isn't complete matte as your skin looks like it's glowing from within but it doesn't turn greasy or oily midday.
  • My favorite daily foundation to date!  Again, you only need an extra help from a concealer if you need more coverage.

So this was ME with Donna and Kriska of Benefit after the makeover. 
I don't look as haggard and oily right?  It was the power of Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation!
We were all instantly camera-ready!

How happy do I look on a scale of 1-10 wearing Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation?

    1. Super cute! the happy face I thought was just the commercial and computerized, didn't know it was permanent sa packaging!

  3. Hai Dear, really like the result and finish on your face. Might the shade 3 suitable with NC20? or just too dark? Thank you :)
