    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    After using Urban Decay Naked for years I needed a little more coverage this winter to cover a few blemishes and red spots. I chose this brand after reading lots of reviews of this and other brands. The color was a perfect match to my olive skin tone and it blends really well. I did purchase an IT Cosmetics foundation brush that works really well. I do wash the brush twice a week because this particular brush will show streaks in the foundation if I do not clean it, but I don't mind cleaning it as it only takes a minute.

    I love how this gives me more coverage than the Urban Decay Naked but doesn't feel heavy.

      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      I use color 2.1 & I love this foundation! I use the "Bye Bye Pores Illuminating Powder" by IT to seal this foundation & once I put that on it doesn't go ANYWHERE!! I usually have problems with foundations rubbing off around my lips when I eat or kiss my husband. And also separation on like my chin from talking and smiling, with this- NONE! It also DOES NOT CREASE OR CAKE! I put it on at 5 am and it last all day! Even after the gym. But if I have a zit that I mess with and need to recover it- you can't once its sealed (which is a good thing) I haven't tried it with any other powder but I find the combo wonderful! I tend to get greasy around my nose and chin after about 2 hours of applying my makeup but again not with this makeup. It is truly life changing for me. I have cystic acne & lots of red pigmentation & this covers all but doesn't feel like a mask I feel like my skin is still breathing, even with full coverage! Thank you SmashBox!

      I bought this on the recommendation of the salesperson along with the hydrating primer. I am in love! Excellent coverage, natural finish, and doesn't accentuate my dry skin.

            I prefer a full coverage foundation, but don't want to look cakey or fake. I had switched from this foundation to another, higher priced one which I was told would be better for my "mature" skin. I found that foundation to be cakey and very unnatural. After a few months, I was back with Studio Skin foundation. Never cakey, blends beautifully, feels great on the skin.

                I used this foundation and could not believe the amazing coverage I got. I used to have bad acne so i do have some scarring on my chin but this foundation smoothed everything out! I set it with smashbox halo powder and the final look was flawless. Let me just add that my skin looked absolutely amazing in photos. I'm hooked for life!

                It does cover most of the dark spots on my face but it just seems too thick, maybe I am applying it too thick I have no idea. Was using a brush and this week started using my fingertips, like it better with my finger tips I can control the amount better. Still have to use a concealer it does not hide all imperfections.

                I work as a paramedic on an ambulance so I need long lasting foundation. I LOVE this foundation so far! I'll check my makeup in the middle of my 12-hour shift, and it looks almost as fresh as when I first applied it. I also use the smashbox blemish control primer because of my combination skin. I've only been using this product for a week, but so far I adore it. Definitely worth it!

                • Q:

                  I have only ever used CoverGirl foundations (first from the Clean line, and now from the Outlast 3 in 1 line), but am looking for a good, photo-friendly foundation for a wedding. Maybelline's BB cream broke me out, and so I have been hesitant to try any brand other than CG, but the 3 in 1 has SPF and you can really tell in pictures. Do you think that the Smashbox foundation would be a safe bet for me?

                    From Smashbox Cosmetics:

                    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.
