    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    I was on the market for a full coverage liquid foundation that wasn't going to slide right off of my face after only a couple hours. I have oily skin, acne marks and redness over most of my face. I decided to bite the bullet and pay the money for this foundation after reading revews. I will never go to another foundation again! I don't even need a concealer with this. It blends beautifully and is very buildable. You DO need to use a primer under this though or else it will break up on your face half way through the day, I think because it is very drying. I just use the smashbox light primer. I recomend this product to many people who come into my store looking for full coverage makeup for oily skin. Love love love it.

    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    Not the easiest to blend because it dries very quickly. I didn't like the finish, IMO it left my skin looking flat. Didn't look like healthy skin and seemed to accentuate the little lines around my eyes.
    This might work if you have oily skin.

      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      A worker suggested I get this foundation for full coverage for my dry skin. I really liked the way it went on my skin and that it was lightweight and didn't feel/look cakey. Overall I loved this foundation but the only downfall was that even the lightest shade was too dark for my fair skin, I ended up returning it to get something that matched my skin tone better.

          This makeup last all day. I put it on when I leave to work at 7 AM and my foundation is still on when I am out of school at 8:30 PM. Being that I live in Phoenix, AZ, this makeup lasts all day even in the sun. Definitely the best switch I have ever made. It is a bit pricey but it is honestly worth the money!

          • Q:

            I don't wear any foundation or powder due to the fact that I sweat so much so easily. But I am constantly red on my cheeks and chin. Lose/lose. I fortunately don't have acne. But have sensitive/dry skin the majority of the time. unless I'm sweating, which is OFTEN. I would really like to find a foundation that is TRULY sweatproof and REALLY light weight. Any recommendations?

              A:

              Studio Skin is sweat- and humidity-resistant and provides up to 15 hours of wear. It features buildable medium-to-full coverage, so it is perfect to even out skin tone and conceal redness. Studio Skin also features a lightweight, oil-free formula that is ideal for all skin types.

              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:
