      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      Even with primer, this foundation did not stick with me skin. It looked splotchy and greatly enhanced the look of my pores (and I have small pores). I don't apply much makeup, but this brand looked like I caked it on.

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        I use the beauty blender for application and it seems to work the best. However, I have very dry skin, and this foundation just stuck to my patches. It's not as hydrating as I was expecting, although I will be using the entire bottle, I will not repurchase.

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        This is a great foundation! The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because they recently changed colors and it is no longer a perfect match for me. Otherwise it is perfect for mature skin. I'm over 40 and this covers perfectly without settling in my creases. It also feels hydrating without adding oil to my acne prone skin. I highly recommend.

          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

          I always watch youtube videos on makeup and i've seen many people love this foundation so i wanted to give it a try. I was currently using the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation which i love but it wears very heavy. I wanted to see if this foundation would have full coverage without feeling heavy. I used both a beauty blender and a foundation brush by morphe and both applicators made a light to medium coverage. I liked the way it felt on my skin but the coverage wasn't there. I have oily skin and this foundation didn't last 15 hours, it barely lasted 4 for me. I did build up the foundation but this caused me too loose a lot of product and i had to buy a new foundation within 3 weeks. Which i thought was weird because pumps make you use less product in my opinion.I know this foundation works for some, but this was not a good foundation for me.

          This stuff stays on my very oily skin for longer than any other foundation but it is so tacky when I put it on! I can't put concealer over it because when I blend it with the beauty blender, it just pulls the foundation right off. Gives a very cakey look too. Not my favorite.

            Love this stuff!! I'm 39 years old and this is the first foundation to not wear off my T zone and I'm not even very oily!! It works well with Dermablend setting powder which didn't work with Esteé Lauder or Tarte foundations. My foundation finally lasts an entire work day of eight to nine hours as well as after work. It still looked good yesterday after a two mile run on the treadmill.

                This is the most amazing foundation I could have ever bought! I am obsessed! You put this on your face and it does not budge ALL DAY LONG. My skin does not get oily with this product. I do not need to touch up this product all day. I would say it is a semi matte finish- but can be a full matte once you set it. Coverage is medium but can easily build to full. One thing I love about this foundation is that it does not transfer. It was a tough claim for Smashbox to make, but they did it! I don't think I will ever buy another foundation
