Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

This makeup last all day. I put it on when I leave to work at 7 AM and my foundation is still on when I am out of school at 8:30 PM. Being that I live in Phoenix, AZ, this makeup lasts all day even in the sun. Definitely the best switch I have ever made. It is a bit pricey but it is honestly worth the money!

    I bought this product after reading how good it was and how it was long lasting. I have to say it doesn't last long and does not stand up to the quality that it's priced for.

      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      I wanted to try something new with good coverage. I wore it two days in a row then I started to notice little bumps along my chin and jaw line. They were itchy and almost looks like tiny little warts. I stopped using the product and the break outs cleared up after a week. The color was too dark/orange for me. I'm not super pale but I have light skin with pink undertones and the lightest was too dark. I switched to Tarte and my skin feels so much better and looks good even without makeup on after using this.

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        I was wearing Urban Decay Naked foundation for 5 years before I wanted a little more coverage for this winter. The Ulta store associate recommended the Smashbox Studio Skin 15 hour wear foundation and I was hooked immediately. It gives more coverage than the Urban Decay Naked but it does not feel heavy. I still get the natural look I'm going for and it never looks cakey or like I'm wearing allot of makeup and it does stay on all day. I don't even need to use touch up powder during the day around my t zone like I used to with the Urban Decay. I use an IT Cosmetics brush and it goes on really smooth. I have found that I need to wash my brush twice a week or it gets streaky, but I don't mind since it doesn't take that long to wash. Love this foundation!

          I love this together with the primer. It's very light, but I use a bronzer and love how natural it looks on me. It's a bit pricey, but well worth the cost for me.

          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

          I live in Central FL, and it's already ridiculously hot and humid this time of the year. I needed something to help me not get so oily around my t zone. I work 12 hour shifts and by the end of it I look like a mess. this foundation feels light, gives great coverage, and has stayed looking fresh for going on 7 hours thus far. I'm super impressed. oh, and a little goes a LONG WAY.

          I get greasy around my T zone area, and get dry patches around my cheeks. I also have some redness on my cheeks as well, but nothing terrible. I found this foundation to have poor pigmentation. As the day goes on, even with 2 hours I see this foundation wearing off. It had areas that were discolored. This foundation also looks cakey and make me break out.

            I never used to wear foundation because I have very sensitive skin, but I recently started using foundation to even out my skin tone. I used to use hello flawless but noticed that my face would get oily rather quickly and in a few hours it looked like I had never put any foundation on at all. Not with this! Coverage lasts all day and my face did not look oily at all. I'm very pleased with this product, although pricey, it was worth the extra $.
