The Hello Happy foundation has a very runny consistency and feels like nothing on the skin! The formula blends out beautifully and doesn't cling to dry areas, I can even apply it with my fingers and it looks incredible!

I would say that the coverage is sheer, but buildable to medium. It looks like skin, very natural-looking and it doesn't look dry or cakey!

On me, the finish is semi-matte and slightly luminous. My skin is very oily though, so the finish is dewier after about an hour. I need to use a blotting sheet by the 2 hours mark, even if I set the foundation with some loose powder and use a mattifying primer.

But to be fair, this isn't supposed to be a mattifying foundation!

The staying power is decent on me, it doesn't break down or settle into fine lines, but I noticed that the coverage is less opaque by the 6 hours mark.

It doesn't claim to be a long-wearing foundation, though. My skin is very oily too, so the staying power should be better on those of you with normal or dry skin.

Personally, I prefer a higher coverage foundation and a formula that last at least 8-9 hours on my oily skin, but you will love the Hello Happy foundation if you are searching for a weightless and natural-looking foundation!
