USE A BEAUTY BLENDER

By Keeley

from Florida

Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

Tried applying with hands alone, with all sorts of brushes. Everything made it so patchy and uneven and cakey. I finally tried it with a damp beauty blender and it blended out great! Four stars for all the efforts I had to apply this product.

      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      This foundation is really great, they have so many colors to choose from, which was really nice when I was picking mine out. Mine matches my skin perfectly.
      I have combo/oily skin. This foundation works great for my oily patches. It doesn't necessarily make it less oily, but it does LOOK oily. After a few hours I can use a blotting sheet, and a lot comes off my face, but it didn't even look oily or shiny beforehand. Not sure how this foundation does that! So I'll take it.
      It also lasts a long time. I've easily worn it for 12-15 hour days and it still looks good (not great) at the end of the day. I am glad I made the splurge, because I typically don't buy expensive foundations.

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        I recently purhased this foundation because I had heard so many great things about it. When I watched people using this product, I always saw them only use a tiny amount and get excellent full coverage, so I thought it was absolutely worth the price. However, it takes me quite a few pumps to achieve the same full coverage I see on other people using a little bit. So, I don't think this is worth the price because, for me, I have to use a ton of product to achieve full coverage. However, once I got past the fact that it takes me many pumps to get full coverage, it is a fantastic foundation. I use it with my Smashbox primer and it stays on all day long and does not oxidize or smudge. It's completely sweat proof and keeps the powders I layer on top including contour, blush, and highlight last all day, which is something that doesn't happen when I use other foundations.

          Worth Every Penny

          By Kelli M

          from Boston, MA

          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

          I heard so many great reviews about this product for months but couldn't bring myself to pay the price tag. During a 20% off promotion I finally splurged and couldn't be happier that I did! I have EXTREMELY oily skin, as in my face looks like I just got out of the shower after a few hours but not with this foundation. My face stays matte all day and I don't have to touch up my makeup even once. I'm also very fair (usually an ivory shade) and have a hard time finding foundations that are a perfect match but this one is. Moral of the story is, if you're oily and have tried everything else, spend the money and try this!!! You won't regret it.

              I just got 2.1 in store and there is a very obvious color issue when looking at the bottle. The color is darker at the top and really light at the bottom. I tried shaking the bottle and it did nothing. I tried to stir with the pump stick and I'm seeing streaks of white. Do I have a defective bottle?

                Blend well over skin with brush, sponge or fingertips—starting at center of face. Build your way to customizable coverage. Our Smashbox motto is apply in sheer layers. It's better to build than to apply to much product and have to work backwards.
