        I've been searching for a long lasting foundation for my dry-patch, combination fair skin and I've found a keeper! This foundation goes on smooth/blends well with a beauty sponge and I will definitely repurchase when I run out. The fairest shade is perfect for me. The formula isn't too runny but isn't thick either. It doesn't cling to my dry patches. The finish is pretty natural, and tends to be a bit dewy on me throughout the day, but by no means oily/greasy looking. I love this!

          This is my absolute favorite foundation. I've been using it for about 5 years. I've tried other foundations a couple of times and nothing compares. It's extremely difficult to find something that matches me as I'm a woman of color but this matches me beautifully. I use a primer and then apply the foundation with a real techniques sponge. Blends out and covers amazingly. I have acne scars and nothing else covers as well. It's like I have perfectly clear skin. It also photographs well with no flashback. I can't say enough good things about it.

                I feel that this foundation is a little heavy for everyday use and tends to get a bit oily throughout the day. However it gave wonderful coverage for a flawless Pinup make over which is what I initially bought it for.

                    Hi There! Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation can be worn without a powder. The foundation will dry to a demi-matte finish and will not look oily/greasy. Apply it over Photo Finish Primer for a finish that will last and last.

                  Hi, I'm curious if this foundation is right for me. I have tried many different types of foundations from drug store to brand name but I always end up disappointed. I have super oily skin with few dry patches and often times I have acne. I'm looking for a foundation that won't make me look oily and will hopefully cover up my acne without drying out my skin. Is this foundation capable of preforming that miracle? Also, will this foundation still work it's wonders without the smashbox primer?

                    A:

                    Hi There! It sounds like you should give Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation a try. It's good for oily skin, even though it's hydrating, and dries to a demi-matte finish. The formulation is medium to full coverage and will give your skin a flawless look. We strongly suggest using primers with your foundation. It will make your makeup look better and last longer!

                    Hi There! Even though Studio Skin is a 15 Hour Wear Foundation it can be removed with a gentler cleanser like Cetaphil. Massage your cleanser onto your skin in a circular motion to breakdown your makeup and wait 30 seconds before rinsing. Your skin will look and feel clean!
