Benefit Cosmetics hello happy Foundation | Review

2018 is the year of pleasing product design!

As a former graphic design student, I learned that a good product design can make all the difference. Of course, the product needs to be good, but the design is what catches peoples attention. The newest foundation by Benefit Cosmetics has been designed by some A plus designers, in my opinion. This is the cutest little bottle and I can see a million teens everywhere vying to get this on their makeup stands.

While loving a good design, I need a foundation that's going to work. 



I completely guessed my color for this when I ordered. I got shade 4, which after using I'll admit I could go to a shade 3. But the foundation was easily blendable and worked into my skin well. A lot of foundations seem to be going towards that watery formulation lately and while I don't hate it, I can't say that I'm in love with it yet.

I didn't bother using a brush or a blender to put this on, I used my fingers and while that may seem weird or gross to some, I feel like this method works well with this foundation. It's sheer and soft, best used for covering up any large pores and minor imperfections you may have. I liked that it was mattifying and didn't give my combination skin any extra oil to worry about. I had read some reviews that it wasn't good for people with combination/oily skin, so I'm happy to have learned that it works just fine in my case.

The bottle, while super cute, is also very compact. I had no issue fitting this into my purse to bring with me to work in case of the need for any touch ups. I've never been able to do that with any other foundation before and I have really liked that option. And did I need it! I needed to touch up my nose at least twice, though I put the blame on my glasses and the fact that I've been getting over the cold from hell, so I rubbed some of it off with tissues.

All things considered, I enjoyed wearing this! If you're looking for something light and need minimal coverage, this would be a good option. And how can you say no to that face?!
