    I was looking for a foundation that wouldn't dry out my skin, but also wouldn't make it feel oily with the crazy summer humidity and would therefore stay put- I found it! Amazing product!

            I usually do not spend this much money ($40+) on any make up item, but this is definitely worth the money. Coverage is excellent & it is very light. Blends well and does not come off until I remove it.

                  They had stopped selling the brand that I had used previously and the one that I had was too light so shopping I went and I'm very glad that I found this foundation. It goes on smoothly doesn't dry my skin out and as I am older that's a plus doesn't rub off easily but comes off when you want to!!

                  • Q:

                    Hello! I currently use Tarte foundation in tan deep honey, which has been working well for my skin. I would like to try the Smashbox 15 hour hydrating foundation because the shades seem to be a better match for my skin tone. Just wondering if this would be a good option for acne probe skin that is really sensitive. I am hesitant in purchasing for this reason.

                    Thank you,

                    Is this foundation easy to touch up towards the end of the day? Some foundations just can't be touched up at all. Can you easily apply another layer midway through the day or just dab more on certain spots?
