        I found that it works best when you apply a primer underneath with a consealer for best results. Also apply with a damp beauty blender and then finish with powder

        I absolutely love this foundation. It was completely full coverage for me and easy to blend. I went to my local Ulta to get help on picking a shade and it was a perfect match for me. Even though it's a little more on the pricey side, it's worth the money.

            Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

            I have very oily skin, but needed a lighter coverage foundation that was blendable for the summer. I normally use tarte but it's a little too heavy in the summertime for me. This one finishes matte, but is also much easier to blend than other matte foundations. It doesn't dry up and accentuate pores like a lot of others can. The coverage is buildable, but I just put on a light layer just to get my skin a little smoother looking. I'll be sticking with this one on the hotter days when I really don't want a full face of makeup.

            I usually switch up my foundations after I finish the bottle to alternate and try new foundations. My skin is always changing but this one have worked well with my greasy t zone and dry cheeks. I do recommend this foundation it give me a health even look without looking cakey. I am usually a matte finish lover but this one give me a heathy glow without the greasy look.

              I have very oily skin and struggled to find a foundation that gave me moderate coverage and didn't settle into my pores. This foundation blends excellently and evens out the skins texture.
