I really enjoy this foundation. It gives a nice dewy finish and last a really long time. I think I got the wrong color though as it is a little orange on me. Will more than likely repurchase.

          I love smashbox products but, halo really doesn't have almost to none coverage. Pricey for no apparent reason.

              I have never been a liquid foundation girl. For the simple fact I like a natural look and foundation always makes me feel like I'm wearing a mask. But I love this foundation! It is light coverage and feels like powder no caked on feeling. I will be buying this from now on!!

                        Warm Vanilla (2) is ideal for those who wear shade 1.2 in Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation.

                      I see this product is oil free, but is it non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging)?

                        Smashbox does not claim that this product is noncomedogenic.

                    • Q:

                      I used High Definition Health FX foundation in Light L3 for years and it seems to be discontinued. The website suggested I look at this product. Is it comparable coverage? I'm concerned that the SPF will cause the white face flash that the Healthy FX did not. I'm also curious about which shade would be comparable. Thanks!

                        A:

                        This foundation provides buildable sheer-to-medium coverage. All Smashbox products are photo-tested in a professional studio environment to ensure their finishes photograph beautifully (no "flashback" effect).

                        Use our handy shade conversion chart to determine your best shade match:

                        We suggest shade 4 for those who used L3.

                    • Q:

                      I really like the smashbox BB cream, but I want something with just a little more coverage for events, date nights, and etcetera. I wear the light/medium in the BB cream and that is a pretty close match to my skin tone. So, what would be my best match for the Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum?

                        Light Warm Beige (4) (Item #:2262310) may be your best match. Please note that these shades may be tested at your nearest ULTA store, if you prefer:

                      I am in the "seasoned women" category. Does this foundation settle in to fine lines and/or areas around the eyes emphasizing lines and creases?
