The per­fect cov­er­age for foun­da­tion-phobes.

UN­LESS THEY’RE STAR­RING

on Rupaul’s Drag Race, no-one likes to ac­tu­ally ad­mit to wear­ing foun­da­tion – it’s the Spanx of beauty prod­ucts. But let’s be real, some­times you need more cov­er­age than a tinted mois­turiser. En­ter Ben­e­fit’s Hello Happy Soft Blur Foun­da­tion. Af­ter three-and-a-half years of de­vel­op­ment, this sheer-tomedium-cov­er­age base is all the things you want: blend­able, light­weight, a bit dewy and avail­able in 12 shades.

“We tested thou­sands of shades to find the per­fect line-up,” says Ben­e­fit’s An­nie Ford Daniel­son, who ad­mits that the brand also spent a year on the pack­ag­ing alone, study­ing hun­dreds of Pan­tone colours to guar­an­tee the shade on the box matches that of the prod­uct, thus mak­ing colour-match­ing eas­ier.

Our favourite tinted balms? Fresh has re­leased a range of treat­ments us­ing sugar and grape­seed oil to smooth and soften lips while of­fer­ing a sheer dose of colour. Tatcha’s camel­lia oil-packed balm cre­ates a rosy sheen with a hint of gold, and Cau­dalie uses aloe vera to re­pair, leav­ing be­hind a build­able tint (and a sweet scent).
