Most Helpful Positive Review Definitely my go to all year round
Starting off I want to say I have oily skin and am acne prone, along with this I have past acne blemishes... I went into the store looking for a full coverage foundation since I was using this at my mothers wedding in Mexico in mid July. Now I'm only 23 so the lady who helped did cover that part and gave me Estée Lauder but she was nice enough to explain to me that's not good for a daily use at my age and asked me if she could recommend me a different foundation for daily use. I agreed, so she recommended hello happy to me and I absolutely fell in love with it. I first used this at Mexico so I definitely put it up to the test since it was super hot and a lot of rainy days. I loved loved the results it's like it has a mind of its own. Never did I feel like I was wearing a lot of foundation nor did I ever see an uneven tone on my neck even after being at Mexico for a month and it always looked smooth. Even though it didn't get rid of my oily skin problem as much as I would've loved too I can't complain cause I know part of that is the moisturizer and the primer as well. I was still impressed at the results and used it out through winter as well and still loved it so now time for my second bottle. So overall, great foundation for a daily use very lightweight but still good coverage and it will definitely adjust its brightness when it needs too.
Most Helpful Critical Review Orange, creases, and patchy!
I was shopping at my local store and a Benefit girl did a "test" between this foundation and Nars as I was looking for a new foundation (I normally use Too Faced Born this Way but my color is backordered). The employee took a ton of time applying it with all these different products, exfoliating my skin and it looked great in the store! I then got home and within half an hour I was shiny. I decided to try it out for a night out, and applied it myself using my normal foundation and the subsequent Benefit powder I bought. It was buildable and went on nicely, but I got home 4 hours later and I was shiny, patchy, the foundation had oxidized, and it had creased SO bad (and I barely have any fine lines. I promptly returned it and the Ulta employee said that they had been having this foundation returned a lot! Definitely would not recommend for anyone oily.

This is a pretty good foundation. It's not my absolute favorite. But I like the formula and if u set it well, it will def last you the whole day. My only complaint is that it needs a lot of product to build to the coverage I like- with that said it's super buildable! The color match for me is also like perfect.
Kylie from Arkansas
I don't know why this has so many bad reviews! I use 3-4 foundations on repeat depending on the day. This is always something I reach for. This is NOT a full coverage foundation. However it does blur pores and gives an even tone! I will wear this on a day off, relaxing at the pool/lake. If I'm not wearing this I'm using my Estée Lauder double wear for full coverage.

Love this product! I was an avid Clinique user for years and wanted to try some new products out. Glad I tried this one! It makes my skin feel so smooth! Good coverage and it doesn't take much.
Really loving this foundation
Shell from Maine
Not as full coverage as I'm used to but I have more of a texture issue than anything so I haven't found anything to hide that.. blends nicely and leaves a nice finish. The color matches me nicely which I also have a hard time finding a color that matches my skin tone
Jenn from Bellevue Wa
I was very disappointed in this. I used to used Benefits Soft Blur Foundation and absolutely loved it. This is supposed to be the replacement and it is not as good at all! Terrible coverage. Once the bottle in done, I will be back to square one as I try and find another Foundation. I wish they just kept Soft Blur. 😔
Love it !!
Peeps from Casper, Wy
I don't understand all the negative comments. I've tried so many foundations and always come back to this one. I have bad acne scaring and very textured skin that is always dry. This foundation seems to blur my face and makes it look smoother. The coverage is very buildable and yet still feels light on the skin. I pair it with a tarte moisturizing primer and a setting powder and spray. It lasts all day and never cakes up. The only bad thing i have to say is that it does get a little oily after about 9 hours of wear. I just blot it with an oil absorbing sheet and it looks as fresh as when i first put it on.
Worst foundation :(
Leesh from Columbus, OH
I've been looking for a new foundation and it looks like I'm still on the hunt.. I primed this foundation with their porefessionals primer. After letting the primer sit, I went in with the foundation which made my face super sticky and discolored my pore making them only more noticeable. I've had drugstore foundation that's way better than this at half the price.
Catherine from Pennsylvania
I really hate this foundation . It's honestly rare for me to hate a foundation this Much as I have normal to combo skin / no texture or problems with my skin really . This made my skin look terrible !!! Made my under eyes look so wrinkled. It's kinda tacky / sticky feeling even when set . I never had this issue before . I couldn't wait to take it off my skin after Acouple hours it just felt so gross . Ughh so disappointed
I always buy this brand love everything they have

Does not make my face break out

The associate picked this foundation for me and I LOVE IT... they knew exactly what I was looking for and pointed me in the right direction
Paige from WA
My new favorite foundation, as of right now I love it for the summer, it's hydrating and lightweight. It is medium coverage so it's perfect for creating an even slate, I do use the concealer for any problem spots, but overall this foundation is amazing.
Not what I went in store for
Sassy from Monroe Louisiana
Overall purchase was not a total waste but went into store to purchase the hello happy 5 soft blur foundation that I really like. The store was out so they offered store to door purchase but was not available once employee began to search product so purchased this which was closest. This product is heavier than what I am accustomed to and doesn't go on as easily. Overall I can make it work but would prefer to purchase the soft blur liquid foundation I had previously purchased.
Good foundation, could use better shade range
Brooke from Washington
I really liked this foundation, and it was very easy to apply. I feel like the shade range could be improved though. As someone who is pale with a pretty neutral undertone, I usually do not struggle to find shades. But I always found this foundation to be a bit too yellow if I tried to apply some more for a fuller coverage. I am also no longer purchasing benefit products because they are not cruelty free. But I really do love their products and if you are considering trying this I definitely recommend.
I love this product. Hopefully it stays on the market a long
Cathy from Charlottesville VA
I use this product all the time. Love it
Clumps to my face, looks terrible
Madison from Temecula
I have really dry skin and always make sure I put on lots of moisturizer. The lady at Ulta told me this would be great for my skin but it looks terrible. It's looks super cakey and oxidizes. Looks super orange in some spots but normal on others. Hate it, won't ever buy it again. My skin looks AWFUL
Not full coverage, medium coverage.
Mandy from Jacksonville, FL

My recent go-to foundation

I love when my foundation looks almost natural but has medium coverage. Its not dull or cakey after a full day.
Had an allergic reaction to
Sensitive skin from Texas
I love love loved this when I first bought it. It looked great but after a few days, my face turned super red, started to burn and under my eyes swelled up very noticeably. Only when my skin started to itch, did I realize it was my foundation. I'm sad I couldn't wear it but oh well.
I won't buy this brand again.
Monica from KS
I use foundation daily. I love Benefit as I have used this for many years. So I was very surprised when they stopped doing Hello Flawless (with 25 SPF) and changed this to a new name with less SPF. Not too happy with that change. I will be looking for a different foundation with a higher SPF.
Ok but not amazing
Tasha from Orange County, Ca
I bought this because there wasn't any of the Soft Blur foundation left in my color and I thought this would be similar. It is not. It is way too thick and you can see it on my skin, whereas the Soft Blur was invisible and made my skin look flawless. I'm really disappointed in this other formula.
Do Not Like
L from IL
I used the Soft Blur foundation that was wonderful. Why do they change perfection? The Hello Happy soft blur was the best I have ever found. I am 62 with oily skin and some breakouts. I have tried many foundations over the years (cheap and expensive) and thought that I would never have to look for another, once I found the Blur. It was the only foundation that looked nice all day. This new one slides off my face and shows the wrinkles. I wish they would have left this alone. Back to the drawing board in finding another foundation that works. This is not it. And I will not purchase again.
yes love it
