Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

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.

          I have very oily skin, and I have try almost everything from drugstore to high-end products like lancome, benefits,to bare mineral. Nothing have kept me matte like this foundation. I'm in love with it, don't recommended for anyone with dry skin.

            Overall, this is one of the best foundations that I have ever used. I need a foundation with sustainability that looks the same at the end of the work day as it does at the beginning. This product does that. The only thing that I don't like is that the top doesn't screw off, so when the pump is no longer able to get the foundation left in the bottom of the bottle, you have to throw it away. I could easily get several more days' worth of coverage if I could just get that list bit in the bottom out. Otherwise, great product for the $$.

            This is the best foundation I have ever had. I have acne-proned oily skin. It covers all of my blemishes with a cheap concealer and powder. It does not make my face feel oily no matter how long I wear it! Before I bought this I never wanted to wear foundation because it made me feel oily and gross, now I wear make up a lot more and my self-confidence has boosted because it makes me feel beautiful!

              This was the first foundation suggested to me back in 2011/2012. I've used many foundations but they've all either broke me out, we're cakey or smudged. Smash box foundation is a bit pricey but it's SO worth the money. This foundation lasts me around 4 months & I wear it nearly everyday. I've used the original smashbox foundation, the halo one & this one the 15 hour one & there is a difference I like this one the most! I work in a fast food place so it gets pretty hot but this foundation lasts during my 7 hour shift & then some!

                      I was looking for a long lasting foundation that would hold up to me hanging by the pool on recent trip to Cancun. Enter....Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hyrdrating Foundation. I combined it with the Hour Glass primer (which is also waterproof). It covered very well. It lasted all day, even in the heat and humidity in Cancun, as well as being in and out of the pool. This is my new go to foundation. I have very dry skin and with this I felt very well hyrdrated. I applied this foundation with a damp beauty blender and felt that it blends well. No streaking. The only "con" I can think of is the pump and the amount of product it dispenses. I wish one pump gave a little bit more product. Seems like to get a full covereage I had to use about 4 or 5 pumps. HIGHLY recommend this foundation

                          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.

                      • Q:

                        I'm looking for foundation for a wedding, and am wondering if this is suitable for flash photography. I need something that won't cause a white cast and will keep my oily skin looking good all day.

                          A:

                          All Smashbox products are photo-tested in a professional studio environment to ensure optimal photo performance. This foundation is long wearing (15 hours!) and should not cause "flashback".

                          To further increase wear and keep skin and makeup looking fresh, first apply a Smashbox primer. We recommend Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light to keep oily skin perfectly mattified:
