        I found that this foundation doesn't last as advertised. It also irritated my skin to the point I have high knots on my face. I will not recommend this ti anyone.

          Great Coverage, but bad cystic acne followed. It was a full, thick coverage foundation. Great shade range as well. Sorry I had to return, because my skin was terrible; this was just with one use.

                    I have tried every foundation under the sun, I love this one! Have have very oily skin and every other make i have tried does not make it through the day! THIS ONE DOES and looks great. I do use a good primer and set it with a loose powder and it makes it from 7am to 5 pm. If an going out after work I will do a small touch up but that is it. This foundation does not break my skin out either. To me is is build able coverage. I can a but it on lightly for running errands or build for full coverage if going out. Did I say how much I love this foundation! Stay on in the Florida heat and humidity!

                    I have some acne scars and redness that I need to cover. I apply this with a brush and it goes on easily. I layer the areas that need a bit more coverage and love the results. This provides good coverage, that looks natural. I use a light dusting of face powder to set and I'm good all day. I do get a little shiny at end of the day, but a little powder fixes that.

                      This is the first foundation I have used that covers the redness and other issues I have on my face from Scleroderma. You can control how much or how little you need in different areas. It blends beautifully.

                              We recommend testing Light Warm Beige 2.3 at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it's your perfect match:
                              http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                              Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation is formulated for all skin types and is oil-free. It provides a lasting matte finish. We think it's a great option for you! For those with oily skin, you can further extend this foundation's wear by either first applying a mattifying primer such as Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light, or setting your foundation using Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder - or both!

                              This foundation features a hydrating formula and works beautifully when applied over moisturizer and primer such as Photo Finish.

                            I have been matched to alabaster in Clinique super balanced foundation- the same shade in their even better foundation goes orange on me. I have also been matched to Estée Lauder double wear in ecru although in winter I tend to mix this with a lighter one. How dark do your shades come up and do you cater for neutral undertones? I am having a real problem with finding a replacement foundation for double wear as it just gets too drying. Please could you advise me on shade and whether this foundation would benefit my dry skin. Also, am I likely to go orange with this? Is it buildable? Clinique's even better foundation made me go bright orange!!

                              All Smashbox foundations feature neutral-to-yellow undertones (not cool/pink, and not orange). We recommend testing shades Light Golden Beige 2.2, Light Beige 2.1, and Warm Fair 1.2 at your nearest ULTA Beauty store to determine your best match:

                              For those with fair skin tones and yellow/warm undertones, we recommend Warm Fair 1.2, though it is always best to test the shades in person at your nearest ULTA Beauty store:

                              Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation features a matte finish and is oil-free. It's formulated for all skin types, but it gets extra love from those with oily/combo skin types! :-)

                              Smashbox Cosmetics' official response regarding animal testing is detailed below:

                              Do you test on animals?
                              We don't test on animals, nor ask others to test on our behalf, except where required by law.

                              What countries require animal testing?
                              China, most notably, in addition to a few others that conduct testing by law of cosmetic products or ingredients to demonstrate safety.

                              Does Smashbox sell in any of these countries?
                              No.

                              What are we doing to end animal testing?
                              Our founders launched with a commitment to end animal testing, and that commitment remains. For instance, we only conduct or commission in vitro/human volunteer testing to show our products are safe, and we're part of the European Partnership for Alternatives to Animal Testing, among other efforts.

                              We hope this info helps!

                              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:

                              Studio Skin is sweat- and humidity-resistant and provides up to 15 hours of wear.

                              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:
