    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    I've tried so many different foundations, BB, CC creams and nothing works to cover my uneven skin tone like this product!! It's so easy to put on, blends perfect and best of all it lasts throughout the day even in the high humidity!!!
    After trying many other brands, I came back to my "tried and true" Smashbox!!!
    It's especially great if you have yellow undertones!!!

    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    This foundation is really good for someone who already has good skin and needs to even out the tone, but for those who have skin issues and need coverage this foundation will not do it.
    Redness, bumps, dark spots, scars, can't be covered with this foundation. It has very liquid-y consistency and it goes on like liquid on the face. Adding more just causes streaks that are visible after the foundation has dried up.Tried to use it with and without the primer, and setting powder, I got the same poor results.It definitely doesn't last 15 hours, more like 3-4 with setting powder.
    Few things that I do like about this foundtion are that it doesn't feel heavy on the face, it does have somewhat matte finish, and didn't cause any breakouts.
    Overall, not worth the price. Some department store fondation brands have better performance than this one. Dissapointed.

      I love the fact that it doesn't crease. When I was using bareskin with the baremineral matte finish, the stuff would literally melt off my face. I had to bring a towel with me everywhere. This make up does not get on my clothes and how about I scratched my face and there was no make up on my finger! I love this stuff. so I bought the rest of my products from smashbox. Everything from them is awesome.

          I bought this product because I fell in love with smash box's full exposure pallet and decided to try their other products. I absolutely love this! It blends well and does not look cakey at all. Matched my skin tone to a T, and feels like its not even there. Great for work as well and being outside in the summer as it stays on all day and night! Will definitely become a regular product for me!

          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

          The foundation I had been using was getting streaky and greasy with summer weather and as my skin changed with age.I went from dry and sensitive to oily t-zone and breakouts with tiny wrinkles. The consultant recommended Smashbox Studio Skin 15 hour for lasting medium coverage and it's perfect! Covers all the undesirables with out being cakey,apply it with a brush and you get an awesome airbrush look that's natural and no piling up in those tiny lines. I even went to a waterpark and it stayed on! It's pricey, but you get what you pay for. I'm hooked!

          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

          Be careful when choosing a shade. If you get one too dark it can look orangey. I am a medium skin tone and had to get the 2.1. Shades do run dark so this might not be a good foundation for fair skin tones. Lasting power is great as long as your face lotion is not tacky. That can cause the foundation to slide. For dry skin users, I recommend wearing clinique lotion+ before applying this foundation.

              A:

              All shades feature neutral-to-golden undertones. Smashbox creates all shades of their foundations with more golden undertones, as Smashbox has found that golden undertone foundations photograph better and appear more natural. Smashbox Studio Skin, however, does provide a more neutral finish than other golden foundations.
