    This foundation is kind of on the pricey side, but it's a steal performance wise. I have very oily skin, and it keeps me matte for a while and looks like skin. It's very light weight, and not greasy.

          from Boise, ID

          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

          I decided to buy this after watching a YouTuber I watch used this in one of her videos! I though it looked so nice on her I thought I'd try it out myself and let me say I'm not disappointed! I went in thinking this would be a bit more dewy & less coverage (what I normally go for) but I'd say it's med/buildable coverage! It dries matte & stays matte all day! I have oily skin in my t-zone & this is the only foundation I've tried that hasn't gone oily in those areas I normally do get oily. It says it's for dry skin but I think it's great for oily skin as well! It's also not cakey even though it's high coverage. I'm in love!

              I REALLY wanted to love this foundation. The finish is fine, coverage is not. Light to medium coverage foundations cover my acne scars better. This hardly gives me any coverage, highly disappointed.

              While I get a longer wear than from my last product, I feel the 15 hour wear is a major exaggeration. If I apply around 7 AM, before work (temp controlled office setting) I can generally see my bare skin by 2 or 3 PM. I am using with a primer. I do not generally sweat during the day, my co-workers like to work in frigid temps. Perhaps I am not applying enough? I just don't care for the caked on, over applied look. I probably wouldn't purchase again and still considering a return.

                    A:

                    Hi There! To extend the life of your foundation we suggest using your fingertips to apply. 3 pumps on the back of your hand is all you need for a full coverage application. Doing this will make your foundation last at least 3 - 6 months.
