    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

      from Boise Idaho

      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.

                    Liquid Halo Foundation contains a light reflecting technology that leaves the skin with a luminous finish. We suggest pairing it with our Hydrating Primer for a moisture barrier that will last all day.
