    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    I have VERY dry skin and unfortunately I took a leap to try a new product... it just didn't measure up to my bare minerals serum. It's difficult to blend but would be good for someone with normal skin.

      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      This foundation applies on very nicely. I can't confirm that it really does last 15 hours but it is very transfer resistant and will last through a hot day. I have oily/combo skin and get breakouts in my T-zone area but it also gets dry there as well, especially my nose. I've found that this foundation doesn't break me out, doesn't accentuate dry patches, and feels very lightweight on my skin. It is not a matte finish but it's not very dewy as well. So it's very natural and good for year round use.

        If you have oily skin this product is not for you! I wore it for not even two hours and i looked in the mirror and looked like a giant grease ball. If you have dry to normal skin i highly recommend this!

            Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

            This is definitely my new favorite foundation. I've been looking for a light weight foundation that works for the office, is reliable for a night out, and can do my oily t-zone some justice. THIS FOUNDATION IS IT. I love the way it feels on - very smooth and silky ( I like to apply with a beauty blender) the cover is good, but definitely will need to apply two coats for a fuller coverage look. All and all I'd say this is one of the best foundations I've ever used - and I own a LOT of them. coupled with the photo finish primer this foundation is amazing.

            I love this product. It is just the right amount of coverage, and last all day! And it never dries out my skin. I have very dry skin and I never get any dry patches with this foundation, like it did with all the others I have used!

              Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

              Besides the product breaking me out, I was disappointed with the pigmentation. It took almost 3 layers to get close to full coverage. If you like light coverage natural finish foundations, you could give it a try but even then you may feel it's not worth the high end price.

              Gorgeous product but tricky application

              By EHM

              from Shreveport, LA

              Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

              First and foremost- this foundation is beautiful. It's kind to the skin, stays for a long time, and dries to a lovely natural finish. It's the best natural, everyday, "no this is totally my natural fabulous skin" makeup I've ever used and I've tried Born This Way and Tarte foundations. With that said, it's a tricky formula. It's thick out of the pump, like a serum. I've only had luck applying it evenly using a beauty blender. It also takes a few minutes to really set to be sure other makeup, like bronzers or blushes, don't move it around. I set mine with the setting powder from Fiona Styles and it works like a charm.

                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.

                  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?

                    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?
