    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    Ok... so I love my estee lauder double wear but I wanted to try something new. I purchased this because I read so many good reviews. Now let me say, i love blending my foundations with brushes but I found that with this foundation, a beauty blender is the way to go. The way you blend is also slightly sticky (fixed this by spraying fix+) and when you finish, it is slight tacky.. BUT when the foundation finally sets on your face, it is quite beautiful.

    I didn't need too much foundation to cover all my acne scars and redness. Also I am pretty oily-acne prone.. i did find that this foundation does make you look oily throughout the day but that's expected when a foundation doesn't necessarily claim to be matte. I didn't really mind because I would just powder my face. The finish of this foundation is just too good to pass up. Kinda pricey but well worth it.

      I struggle with frequent breakouts and tend to stay away from liquid foundation. But this foundation is oil free and I am loving it! I see all around coverage that last all day and isn't making my face greasy or have any redness/acne. I'm so glad I found this product. I'd recommend it to anyone, but especially girls who have oily skin prone to breakouts.

            I absolutely love this foundation!! It looks really good in photos by making your skin look smooth and airbrushed! However, if you put too much on, it can look a little heavy but it can give great coverage with just 1 layer!!

            I started using this product last year and wow, I can never go back to drug store foundation again. It's light yet gives good coverage, which is important for me because my skin is prone to breakouts. It's not too heavy so it gives you that studio look. It's a little pricey but you get what you pay for.

                  Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation provides buildable medium-to-full coverage. It is formulated to provide up to 15 hours of picture-perfect wear!

                  We would also suggest pairing with the High Definition Liquid Concealer, which provides full spot coverage of areas of concern:

                  To ensure you receive the correct shade for your skin tone, we recommend going to your nearest Ulta Beauty store to test the different shade options. Our beauty associates would be able to direct you much easier in-person! :-) This foundation provides a lasting, 15-hour matte finish.
