    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    This is one of the very few medium-full coverage foundations that does not cause my face to break out! I have sensitive, combination skin with a lot of redness and visible pores. I had been searching for a full coverage foundation for quite a while but everything either cracked terribly around my nose or caused awful breakouts. This foundation has done neither of those things and provides pretty great coverage. My only complaint is that the lightest shade is almost too dark for my skin. If not for the finishing/setting powder I use it might look a little off. So if you have very fair skin like me you might run into an issue with that.

    I've tried applying with my fingers and a foundation brush and I found better results by applying with my fingers.
    This foundation is sticky! I have tried SO many foundations and this is by far the stickiest, most difficult foundation to apply that I've ever used!
    I am going to return this product in hopes of finding something better

        I have oily skin, so every foundation I have tried always disappeared by the end of the day. I would have to reapply if I were going anywhere after work. This foundation stays on all day. It makes my skin look dewy, and I am 65 years old. Normally, I would not pay this much for a foundation, but since I don't have to reapply during the day, I feel the price is more than worth it.

          I honestly can't say much about this foundation because I returned it the same day I bought it. One of the employees picked out my color and it seemed t match well in the store. It was medium to full coverage and she was able to apply it with ease. Once I got in my car and looked in the mirror it was a whole different story. The color looked horrendous on me. I looked like I had just gotten a really bad spray tan. I would suggest to maybe stand at the door in the store after it's applied and look it again in the mirror.

            Here's the deal. I love this foundation as long as I am moisturized. I have pretty normal skin but I can get dry pretty easily. As long as I use a moisturizing primer and DON'T set it with a powder it looks amazing. If not, it starts to break up on my nose. If you have more oily skin you will love this. If you are very dry, I would try something else.

                I was on the market for a full coverage liquid foundation that wasn't going to slide right off of my face after only a couple hours. I have oily skin, acne marks and redness over most of my face. I decided to bite the bullet and pay the money for this foundation after reading revews. I will never go to another foundation again! I don't even need a concealer with this. It blends beautifully and is very buildable. You DO need to use a primer under this though or else it will break up on your face half way through the day, I think because it is very drying. I just use the smashbox light primer. I recomend this product to many people who come into my store looking for full coverage makeup for oily skin. Love love love it.

                    A:

                    The direct replacement for the discontinued Smashbox High Definition Healthy Fx Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is the Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, which features a radiant finish and sheer-to-medium coverage:
                    http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod5580073

                    Studio Skin features a matte finish and medium-to-full coverage. Both foundations are oil-free and suitable for all skin types.

                    In Liquid Halo HD, your best match may be shade Light Beige 3 (light beige for light complexions). In Studio Skin, your best match may be shade 2.2 (light golden beige) or shade 2.1 (light beige). We recommend testing these products and shades at your nearest ULTA Beauty store to find your perfect match:

                    All Smashbox products are photo-tested in a professional studio environment to ensure optimal photo performance. This foundation is long wearing (15 hours!) and should not cause "flashback".

                    To further increase wear and keep skin and makeup looking fresh, first apply a Smashbox primer. We recommend Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light to keep oily skin perfectly mattified:

                    Studio Skin is sweat- and humidity-resistant and provides up to 15 hours of wear. It features buildable medium-to-full coverage, so it is perfect to even out skin tone and conceal redness. Studio Skin also features a lightweight, oil-free formula that is ideal for all skin types.

                    Smashbox Cosmetics products are developed to stand up to a professional photography environment (including hot lights!), so we think it's a great option worth trying! This foundation can be tested at your nearest ULTA store:
