      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      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.

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        I decided to try this product as I have heard good things about this Smashbox foundation, but I wasn't happy with my results. It was very heavy and felt thick on my face, even when I applied a small amount. It didn't blend well and always felt sticky. I wasn't impressed especially since it costs so much, if I'm paying that much for makeup I expect better results.

          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

          This foundation is incredible. It can be worn light to full coverage depending on the amount and brush used. I can throw on just a tiny dot of it just for a smooth light coverage or a little more for a full matte coverage that literally makes my face look flawless. I don't have a huge problem with acne but definitely have some uneven areas and blemishes. I took a picture of myself wearing it and people kept commenting how flawless my skin looked and couldn't believe I hadn't edited the photo. It really is a beautiful foundation and does last a long time. It was slightly difficult to figure out what color to choose but I have that issue with all foundations. I like to mix it with a dot of a different tone drug store foundation just to make my own shade but everyone has their own preference on that. Will definitely repurchase.

            I love this makeup! It goes on easy and covers well if I have a breakout. Last all day and for months in that size. I tried the other smashbox liquid HD foundation and I did not like it as much.

              I started to use this product after all the great things I read and heard about it. I could not believe how horrible this stuff is. The coverage is poor and not build-able at all whatsoever. It caked and caused massive breakouts I still have scars on my face from this product I will never go near this junk again.

              I purchased this foundation hoping it would hydrate my skin but it did not, it gave me a very matte look, it also made my skin look old, dull & tired looking, It accentuates all my fine lines & huge pores.

                      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.
