Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

This is the best foundation I have ever used. I have probably tried 10 different ones. I have very dry skin and could never find one that I loved. I love this foundation and it makes my face look great, definitely worth the money.

      This is great, it lasts 12-15 hours with no problem. Blend and applies easily. There only thing I don't like is that I have dry skin and this dries matte. I moisturize religiously so it doesn't cling to dry patches but I'm used to dewy foundations so I mix a drop of facial oil or luminous primer in with it. This decreases the longevity of it but gives me a dewy finish.

      I always get compliments every time I wear this foundation. It doesn't make me oily but gives me a nice glow. Everyone says my skin looks so fresh like I am not wearing makeup. This is one of my favorite foundations. I wish it wasn't so expensive, but if you are going to buy a foundation that works, this is worth the price.

                Well, as always I find myself in the situation of returning a foundation. Granted, I should've checked to make sure it would match my skin tone, but I always baffled that most makeup companies short change and forget about very fair and very dark skinned girls. If you don't fit into the window of "desirable" skin color, don't waste your time with this one. Loved the product, hate the lack of variety.
