Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

What I will give this foundation credit for is that it does stay on a very long time. Everything else I was quite disappointed in. While it is easy to apply, I found this foundation to feel sticky and heavy. I couldn't wait to take it off at the end of the day. Anyone with an normal to oily skin type, tread lightly. Also, as a person with pink undertones, I found this even in a lighter shade to have too much of a yellow cast for my skin.

              While this is an expensive foundation, it is worth it! It lasts alllll day. I work long hours and after 16 hours in my face, only my nose was a little oily. And that doesn't happen everyday. It's good buildable coverage. I find that I need a little extra in my cheeks and forehead to cover redness.

                    Hi There! Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation can be worn without a powder. The foundation will dry to a demi-matte finish and will not look oily/greasy. Apply it over Photo Finish Primer for a finish that will last and last.

                • Q:

                  Hi, I'm curious if this foundation is right for me. I have tried many different types of foundations from drug store to brand name but I always end up disappointed. I have super oily skin with few dry patches and often times I have acne. I'm looking for a foundation that won't make me look oily and will hopefully cover up my acne without drying out my skin. Is this foundation capable of preforming that miracle? Also, will this foundation still work it's wonders without the smashbox primer?

                    A:

                    Hi There! It sounds like you should give Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation a try. It's good for oily skin, even though it's hydrating, and dries to a demi-matte finish. The formulation is medium to full coverage and will give your skin a flawless look. We strongly suggest using primers with your foundation. It will make your makeup look better and last longer!

                  Is this difficult to remove from your skin? I use Cetaphil face wash but with such long wear I am wondering if that is enough to remove this makeup. I know Mac has a foundation that I was told Cetaphil was not going to work with.

                    Hi There! Even though Studio Skin is a 15 Hour Wear Foundation it can be removed with a gentler cleanser like Cetaphil. Massage your cleanser onto your skin in a circular motion to breakdown your makeup and wait 30 seconds before rinsing. Your skin will look and feel clean!
