    I loved the sample. Was excited to own it when i bought the whole bottle but it gets very cakey at the end of the day. Not sure if its the primer i use (smashbox photo finish) but it looks like i have huge gross pores and it starts to look spotty. I will keep trying to figure out what it is.

            I'm a previous Halo foundation SB fan, but since it was dc, decided to go for the Studio Skin, as I've tried the BB, CC creams, and was not impressed. Unfortunately, I needed to buy 2 different shades to mix to match my skin tone. Very heavy weight feel to this foundation. Good coverage, but feels like a "mask" on your skin. As with most of SB products, looks good in pictures. Made my skin breakout more than usual. I ended up returning and going with another brand for foundation...

            I asked the makeup person for a medium to full coverage foundation for dry skin that wouldn't flake or wear off and last during exercise etc. I have worn this everyday for the last 4 days and it's light weight , looks natural evens my skin tone out and last during my exercise classes. It's on the pricer side of foundation. I've been using an HD long lasting foundation by revelon for months and it heavy on the skin and transfers and doesn't last anywhere near the amount of hours this foundation does.

              This foundation looked so well on. But as soon as I started to use it I got really bad breakouts on my chin area. Sometimes they were painful. I thought the breakouts were caused by hormones because it was around my chin area. But I decided to take a week break from the foundation and my skin cleared up. This was a surprise because I have normal combo skin. Its a bummer because the foundation applies really well and stays on most of the day.

              Definitely a full coverage foundation, that lasts all day and works well controlling oily skin. It was much to heavy for every day wear for me. It reminds me of theatrical makeup.

                  I really love this foundation! I had a 12 hour fundraising event and my foundation stayed on all day without looking cakey and my face wasn't shiney. I wish it didn't take as much product to get the coverage I want, but the way it last is worth it to me. It goes on a little tacky, but it feels really smooth once it settles! Will buy again!

                    Smashbox Studio Skin 2.1 has been my go-to for several years now. It provides light but full coverage and it balances out my fair/pink skin well while keeping it hydrated. Since I am fairly pale many people assume I use the lightest foundations out there, but they do not even out my skin correctly and make me look like I have a white "painted" face. I use the 2.1 and blend all the way down my neck and find that it looks very natural. I also use just a touch of the loose powder to set it and find that it lasts all day.

                    • Q:

                      I use this foundation in 1.2. I always moisturize my skin well and use primer prior to applying the product. I have heard a lot of good things about make up setting spray's. Would that be something that would be helpful with this product? And would I spray it on after putting on primer? (Which brand do you recommend?) Also I have been interested in learning to contour and highlight my face. I am still unclear on whether or not you can use contouring or highlighting with a foundation. Thank you for your help!

                        Hi There! It sounds like you are doing all the right things... Makeup setting sprays are an excellent way to prolong the wear of your makeup. We suggest using the Primer Water, by Smashbox, to refresh and set your makeup after you've applied your Smashbox Photo finish Primer and Studio Skin Foundation. Contour and highlight is can absolutely be used with a foundation. Apply it after foundation, but before setting your makeup with Primer Water.

                      Does this foundation have to be set with powder? Or can I just use a primer water to set it? I have oily skin but I do not plan on wearing the foundation for several hours, maybe 4 hours maximum. I would only use powder to set my t-zone.
