            I like this foundation for an everyday natural look. First application gives a light coverage and second application gives more of a medium coverage. I give this foundation four stars because it doesn't last all day.

            Comments about Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            Nice finish, blends well and looks like your skin. Just too sheer for me, I prefer a light coverage but this was just a little too sheer. Even application and hydrating feeling but didn't last through the day, it seemed to melt off my skin by the 6-8 hour. Would use for just everyday wear or very sheer coverage but I need a bit more lasting power and coverage for the workday.

                Liquid Halo Foundation contains a light reflecting technology that leaves the skin with a luminous finish. We suggest pairing it with our Hydrating Primer for a moisture barrier that will last all day.

                Hi There! Our Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation is sweat and humidity resistant. This might be a better match. Pair it with our Primer Water to prime, refresh and set your skin throughout the day. It will help keep you cool while your foundation lasts and lasts.
