    Comments about Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I really like how it feels like nothing is on my skin but, when I look in the mirror I am very well pleased!!!
    I love that the base color is neutral, because some foundation are to red or to golden, and at time to pink with the undertones.. This works best for me because it is a Year Round Foundation and I just love the finish.. Also, If I want more coverage it is buildable. I will be purchasing them as backup until I can't purchase anymore!

        I swear to you this is liquid skin. I put this on generously with a buffing brush and I could not detect an ounce of makeup on my face. I have never worn a foundation that's so skin-like in my life.

          exactly what I needed

          By Olivia

          Comments about Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

          I used the powder version of "me vain champagne" by benefit but when I tried the liquid version it was too pink in the sun for my neck. I have a hard time finding a shade that doesn't look like I'm wearing a light pink layer over my face even if it is a neutral shade lol so I love love love #3 when it's summer and I'm tan af. I have tried a ton of different brands at the store and What I liked a lot about this is it doesn't have the strong smell benefit liquid foundation has and it covered a red spot with barely any product. It just melted into my skin when I put it on my wrist with the others. I find the only way I apply this foundation is to put some on my hand and then use a flat foundation brush. One pump will do your whole face. Exactly the coverage I want!! It says sheer to medium so if you need/want full coverage then go for their other foundation. Personally I don't like the full coverage look, and there aren't many luminous sheer coverage foundations.
