Goes on smooth and works great for oily skin...my only con that it's pricey for the size and the pump doesn't give out a lot of product so I feel like I'm pumping a lot to get a full face

    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    I finally found my perfect match in a long-wear and medium coverage foundation. I'm a 4.05. This foundation lasts well beyond an 8 hr workday and keeps on giving. Love!! Only drawback is that I have dry skin and have to prep with a moisturizer and oil to offset the semi-matte finish or it'll cake up on me.

    This foundation truly lasts all day and I work in a restaurant where I'm running around all the time and it holds my blush and highlighter in place all day too. People explain about it being expensive I truly didn't notice. My face is something I'll always spend money on. That's what's out there all the time and making first impressions! Great product Smashbox!

      Not for Beginners

      By Em

      from Ohio

      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      This foundation has amazing coverage and has a great finish, but it is not buildable and it drys way too fast. If you try to build on your foundation it ends up looking cakey and because it drys so fast it's almost impossible to use any type of cream highlighter, or contour.

            Calling all my ladies with oily/combo skin who hate the thick and heavy feel of full coverage foundations. Worry no more, smashbox 15 HR wear REALLY wears for 15+ hrs, with a medium to full coverage, VERY buildable without looking OR feeling cakey! It looks natural and blends seamlessly into your skin. I cannot complain, sorry estee double wear, you've met your match. I will definitely be repurchasing this foundation! Worth the $$$$$

              I do like this product a lot, and would love it if it didn't oxidize after a full day of wear. I would say roughly 8 hours it started turning 'orangey'.

              • Q:

                Hi! I'm debating on buying this product, but I have extremely problematic skin, from acne to acne scarring to hyper-pigmentation to redness. I am really hoping to get really good coverage, but I have extremely dry skin. Will this help cover up my problematic skin? And if it does, will it cause dry patches? I can't find a foundation that won't do this to my dry skin. And what other products would help it be its best?

                  A:

                  Hi There! At Smashbox we always suggest using a primer under foundation. This will perfect the surface of the skin so your foundation glides on smoothly (without patching). The 15 Hour Wear Foundation is hydrating and full coverage so you'll definitely cover up those problem areas. We suggest applying it with a beauty blender or a flat brush.

                Hello, I'm in the shade 3w1 Tawny in the Estee lauder Double Wear, I love that foundation haven't found anything better than that yet. The only downfall is that it gives flash back with flash photography. Does this foundation do the same and if it doesn't what shade would I be under?
