      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin Shaping Foundation Stick:

      I really want to love this foundation - I love all other smashbox foundations. For me, this goes on easily, blends well but the coverage is lacking. It seems the more I try to blend it in, the less coverage I have. It doesn't cover redness on me at all, which is my biggest concern. It also lays on my skin in a way that really brings out my pores and transfers easily. It does get oily by the end of the day, but nothing to crazy. I'm not going to give up on it quite yet, but so far it's just not my favorite.

          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin Shaping Foundation Stick:

          I thought this product would be great. However, they don't have a good selection of shades for my medium skin tone. When it went on it looked nice but an hour or two later it settled into my creases and eventually anything that was on my cheeks disappeared. I returned this and would never get it again.

              Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin Shaping Foundation Stick:

              I kept hearing good reviews about it. So during the smashbox event at my local Ulta I decided to try it. The 15hr long wear is my holy grail so I thought I would love this just as much. I do love it however it's a little too light. I'm 3.2+3.35 in the 15hr. In this stick I got 3.2 because the next shade up was too orange. I feel like 3.2 is slightly too light for me but since it's getting cooler I should lighten up and get more paler and it might work. If it was my perfect match then it would be 5 stars.

              This was put on me in store and initially looked great so I purchased. By the time I got home, I was ORANGE. It was awful. It had also begun separating on my skin (the ulta girl put the new smashbox primer under it) and it was so so awful. I took it right back and will warn everyone to avoid this product. It was recommended to be comparable to my ride or die MUFE Ultra HD Stick and it is NOT.

                  Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin Shaping Foundation Stick:

                  This is a "wow" product. I wanted a stick type foundation for quick usage and touchup from my morning "plan on all day" application of my liquid foundation (Color Japonesque). This stick had the contour as part of the stick. So I went to my local Ulta to test the colors and textures. Unfortunately I ended up ordering this product instead of supporting my local Ulta due to the attitude of the floor person. At least I could look at the product. This is definitely a great product and i am so happy to have discovered and bought it anyway despite the local person who wanted to steer me away from it. Also the box has instructions and diagrams of how to apply the contour. I do wish Smashbox would offer the contour color as a separate item. I will be using the contour more than the foundation color.
