The brand new Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation promises to look like skin and feel like nothing at all which sounded very appealing indeed. I have been having a play with it and have some before and after photos for you to check out. Here’s what you need to know.
The packaging of this new foundation is so cute. I love that it has a smiley face on it! It’s also really neat and compact.

I have one shade to show you, which is a little too dark for my skin tone, but I have some before and after photos anyway, just so you can see what it can do.
Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation Swatch
I have shade 4 to show you:
As you can see it has a lovely creamy texture that’s really easy to blend. You only need one drop to start with, and then you can add further drops if you require more coverage.
Before & After Photos
As this shade is a little darker than I’d normally go for, I used small amounts of product at a time and blended it in really well before adding more. It is pretty sheer, so I found that it needed building up, and while it blurs imperfections, you can still see skin through it.
Shade 4 (medium neutral) actually works better on me than I thought, but I do tend to prefer a paler base and then I add in warmth after that. I think shade 3 light neutral is the perfect one for me. It has a lovely soft matte finish and works very well on enlarged pores and fine lines with it’s blurring action.
Right now, I am more into a really juicy, dewy, almost glossy base, but this natural matte is very flattering and feels super comfortable on the skin. I really like it.
The Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation is £25.50 but currently £21.67 HERE (at the time of writing).
