There are days when you want a matte foundation that lasts forever, a matte foundation that provides just the right amount of coverage, and a matte foundation that's breathable AF. Lately, I'm more into breathable AF matte foundations because I've no time for a full face so I want light matte foundations that are easy to blend and wear. I found these in Benefit's new Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation.

The newest from Benefit is Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation, a light matte foundation with soft, optical blurring pigments that provide a healthy, flawless coverage. The bottles are also cute AF; they look like happy, caramel- dipped marshmallows; so easy to spot in my makeup kit and seeing it definitely lightens up the mood. There are also 12 shades available and I believe, we have 10 available locally.

The foundation's flawless partner is Hello Happy makeup sponge that looks like an RT sponge, but only in pink. Compared to RT, this one feels sturdier; a lot less softer than RT, but definitely not stiff and hard. 

My shade in the foundation is # 6, a medium warm shade with a yellow undertone. It is a runny, semi- creamy liquid that is unscented. If you're going to use it with the HH makeup sponge, coverage will be much sheerer and more airbrushed- looking; I prefer using a brush with this foundation due to the already thin consistency and I don't want to thin it further by using a sponge; my HH makeup sponge works well with my heavier foundations so I use it more with those.

Compared to The Porefessional Pore Minimizing Makeup, this has more pigmentation and coverage; the former is more of a skin tint.

Coverage is light to medium. The foundation evens out quickly and easily, and makes skin look softer and smoother; it sets quickly and into a semi- matte finish. All in all, it's a foundation that's very easy to work with.

I only use a translucent setting powder to set this product. Lasting power is good at 3 hours before my skin oils up. For those with oilier skin, a primer is very much needed. It's very comfortable to wear and doesn't make my pores feel clogged despite the decent coverage.

Hello Happy Foundation gives that fresh, happy skin glow; I love how breathable and easy to use it is overall and that it requires minimal skill to work on the skin; this foundation saves me time, saves me brain cells, and lets me save face. Definitely happy with that!

  4. Gosh, this looks so nice on skin! I just think that the mini version is very expensive for Php 800!! :( It looks similar to Happy Skin Air Serum Foundation, have you tried that one too? The longetivity is also almost the same. But this one looks bigger and has better coverage. :D
