          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

          I had heard amazing reviews about this so i figured i'd "treat myself" with a more expensive foundation. however it was barely medium coverage. i have drugstore foundation that are a fourth of the price that cover better. it required multiple pumps to cover with a medium coverage. it also dried my skin out in certain areas which i found strange considering i've never had a foundation do that. i ended returning it & getting a different higher end foundation.

                  Tried applying with hands alone, with all sorts of brushes. Everything made it so patchy and uneven and cakey. I finally tried it with a damp beauty blender and it blended out great! Four stars for all the efforts I had to apply this product.

                    I just got 2.1 in store and there is a very obvious color issue when looking at the bottle. The color is darker at the top and really light at the bottom. I tried shaking the bottle and it did nothing. I tried to stir with the pump stick and I'm seeing streaks of white. Do I have a defective bottle?

                      A:

                      Blend well over skin with brush, sponge or fingertips—starting at center of face. Build your way to customizable coverage. Our Smashbox motto is apply in sheer layers. It's better to build than to apply to much product and have to work backwards.
