I’ve used Benefit Cosmetics’ Hello Happy foundation – the soft blur one. And I liked it, even though it was a little too white for me. (Which is surprising, since I chose shade 4, which is a light-medium neutral. But it’s okay since it wasn’t something I couldn’t fix) Since then, Benefit had announced an expansion to the Hello Happy line, and it’s finally gone live.

The new items in the infamous label include a new “brightening” foundation and a velvet powder foundation that claims you won’t need anything else if you purchase it. Let’s take a quick look at what both products’ descriptions.
