    I have combination skin and this foundation looks absolutely flawless. I did use it with smash box primer and urban decay setting spray and it stayed on for several hours and even after swimming! I've gotten so many compliments about my skin after using this product. Definitely invest in this! So worth it.

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        I usually don't spend this much money for foundation, but it is worth it! I have never been able to find a foundation to match my skin so perfectly! I love everything about it. It stays on all day and doesn't feel heavy. I have combination skin with breakouts and I am 43 years old. I am Caucasian and Native American, so my skin tone never matches the limited colors that you would find at general merchandise stores. I am light skinned and try to avoid too much sun, but even with a little sun my skin responds and darkens quickly. I have been using shade 1.2, but I am confident with all the color choices that I will be able to find the right shade if I need be. The fist time I used it it didn't go on smoothly. I found if I use my moisturizer first, (Philosophy, oil-free Take a deep breath) then apply foundation it goes on perfectly!! I also use a slight dusting of finishing powder to complete my look (Urban Decay Naked skin loose powder) My skin looks flawless with this, my breakouts are better too. I just love this product and hope it never is discontinued or changed!!

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        I was matched with this foundation after telling the associate about my skin type. I told her about my combination, acne prone skin. This foundation is WAY too greasy for anyone with anything other than dry skin. My face is so shiny 2 hours after applying and it rubs off if you just touch your finger to your face. I really can't believe all the good reviews. Highly disappointed.

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        This winter when my skin was dry this foundation stuck to all my dry patches and looked very flaky. However I found it does look better when applied with a foundation brush vs a beauty blender.

              I've tried a few different cover ups and since I have freckles it's been hard to find one that works well with my color corrector and stays on. I work outside selling cars all day so I need something that stays on and stays on with the coverage I want and so far this works great. It feels very smooth on my skin and I love it. I have fair skin and the color matching is great as well. I will definitely be buying again.
