Benefit Hello Happy Air Stick Foundation Review


Hi AMW Friends!
I have shared a First Try Video located at the bottom of this article my first try on Benefit's Hello Happy Air Stick Foundation.

After a week of testing this product out, I am ready to share my in depth thoughts for you to be able to decide if you need this foundation in your life!

Benefit Hello Happy Air Stick Foundation Review

Benefit says ---
Benefit’s NEW Hello Happy Air Stick Foundation with broad spectrum SPF 20 PA+++ sunscreen glides on silky-smooth for longwearing, medium coverage that feels weightless & breathable. This stick foundation blends & builds seamlessly for natural-looking coverage that never looks cakey. Soft, lightweight powders & shea butter create a light-as-air feel and smooth texture on skin. Formulated with a happy blend of chamomile & botanical extracts and a subtle lavender scent.

I honestly felt it was the LIGHTEST foundation I've tried during my first try video and my thoughts remain the same until this very moment!  The Benefit Hello Happy Air Stick Foundation deserves its' name - light as air, felt like you are wearing NOTHING.  Not even a BB Cream, CC Cream, Tinted Moisturizer can top that!  It felt like powder foundation minus the powdery texture!  It just felt like your own skin!

I own the first Stick Foundation from Benefit and I honestly loved it until this very moment.  I hail it as the "most coverage" foundation Benefit came up with because most of their base products give off a light to medium light coverage!  This stick foundation is what I would use for shoots and as concealer because of its' hydrating properties.  Since most Filipinas have oily skin, I guess they steered clear to it because I have to admit, you'll need a separate powder to set it!

I guess Benefit answered the call for help and it came right on time during the Pandemic were people need to wear mask.  This isn't hydrating as the first version yet it doesn't dry out my already dry skin!  It has a light to light medium coverage (even a bit lighter than the first version) but this product is definitely buildable because no matter how many times I build, it remain weightless.

Check out my half face look!

Benefit Hello Happy Air Stick Foundation Review

You may notice that my skin looks like skin.  I look like I am not wearing any makeup at all which may pass this product as "I woke Up Like This Makeup Product".  Thankfully, since it has a matte finish, it has least transfer as opposed to the previous base makeup from the brand.

What I like is the finish and feel.  The effect is very glowing and healthy and I like how it covers some skin imperfections but the rest of my skin shows through!  

You know how people scream - I want to look like myself when I put makeup on?  THIS IS THE PRODUCT FOR YOU.

Benefit Hello Happy Air Stick Foundation Review

This product is easy to apply, easy to work with.  Can double up as foundation, concealer and even highlight product if you chose a shade lighter.  

As for their 16-hour longevity deal, well, it does stay but not 16 hours.  I may need to retouch with either this same product or a powder on areas that the mask tends to rub!  There will also be some movements on oily areas of the face like T-zone and undereye area but SUPER MINIMAL.  For a product that I used alone without setting, I would say, this is a WONDERFUL product and a perfect base makeup to use this pandemic!
