The “Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation” by Benefit Cosmetics is easy to use and layer. The foundation eased dullness and evened out the skin tone. However, it did not hide skin imperfections well. In fact, the product is very lightweight and provides only light to medium coverage. The “Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation” had a natural finish and was transfer-proof. However, the product is not suitable for oily skin as it contains alcohol and tends to aggravate acne. Additionally, the foundation did not “blur” blemishes unless they were very minor. The product has a medium wearability and tends to oxidize and dissipate faster than other foundations.
