    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    I am always pessimistic when I try new foundations. I am so glad I tried this. I literally come home and my foundation looks like I just put it on. I was shocked. I am the person that sees people rave and claim something is the best and it doesn't work for me. This foundation is amazing. It reminds me of how Naked Skin melts into your skin. Very comfortable wear.

    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    I work a job that has me walking for 12+ hours and lifting and moving things all over. I have tried at least 20 foundations from drugstore to high end and many in between. This is the most amazing one I have found yet. I use Benefit Porefessional primer unber it and set with Maybelline Fit Me powder and Urban Decay spray. I blotted once or twice during my shift, and it stays looking amazing. Even if I miss blotting, it looks good. I am 38, so you ladies not in your early 20 with smooth beautiful skin, this is good stuff.

    I love this foundation!

    By Kayla

    from Sarasota

    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    I was able to find my perfect shade. This foundation melts into my skin and looks beautifully matte while staying matte all day. It does not budge on me which is huge for me (many foundations budge easily on me). This has become my favorite foundation and I have repurchased this.

      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      Since I have found this Foundation it has been my go-to. I always compare every other Foundation to this one's sweat, humidity resistant, and transfer resistant properties, which is what I love about this Foundation. I put it on in the morning around 7 and by 7 p.m. my face still looks flawless. My imperfections are still blurred and I may only have slight oil coming through which I usually just block off with a piece of toilet paper but the makeup still stays on. I always work in jobs where I'm moving around a lot and constantly busting a sweat, so I need a foundation that stays in place and doesn't look like a separated mess at the end of the day. I am also a guy so I need a foundation that is light enough to not settle into my pores but heavy enough to cover imperfections without looking like makeup. I always get compliments on my skin and how radiant it looks. I also like this Foundation because it is a Demi matte Finish, so the natural Radiance of your skin does shine through a little bit unlike some matte foundations that completely take all the Natural Glow away from your skin and make you look like there's chalk particles in your makeup. I find I can get the product to go further if I use my fingers which I did in the beginning, however, I have invested in a foundation brush, but no matter the foundation brush I still feel product absorbs into the brushes so I like to use my fingertips most of the time. I can't say enough good things about this Foundation I've tried others and I literally always come back to this one, I just wish they would carry a little bit more shades (which they have released a few more) but in the world where most makeup lines carry 42 shades of foundation I think this one only carries 20 Shades or so. I am normally a 3.1 in Smashbox but I also use 2.74 as well as 3.2 it just depends on the undertone of my skin that Day. I feel many foundations are stepping up their game to match the benefits of this Foundation.

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        DRY SKIN BEWARE!!! I'm not sure why or how, but this "hydrating" foundation made me look dry and gross if I had it on for more than a few hours. The coverage is light, and not buildable, every time I tried to get it to cover more of my freckles I ended up looking like a cakey mess. I've been trying to get it to work for months now, but i finally gave up and bought a new foundation. It did not apply well with a brush, use a wet beauty sponge. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I can see myself using it again if I know I'll only have it on for 3-5 hours and I want a lighter coverage.

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        Holy grail foundation. It looks so good and fresh all day! I set my face with loose powder very lightly and then spray with the Mario Badescu rose water and omg my skin looks so smooth and barely creases in my smile lines. One star came off for the fact that the color seems to separate weird and I need to shake it.

            Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

            I have been wearing this foundation daily. It is hydrating and long lasting. The only problem I have is that I feel that I need a few layers to even get it to Medium coverage. (However, the bottle does last a while.) I recommend using a damp beauty sponge to apply this foundation since it is a little bit on the thicker side.

            not great for pores or acne

            • Normal Skin

            Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

            I think it lasts all day, definitely, but I have problems with it. I have acne and when I apply this, it makes every slightly red spot on my face dark and much more apparent, which my other foundation doesn't do. It takes me a lot of product to get an actual full-ish coverage. The worst thing about it is that it sinks right into my pores. I use a pore filling primer but they don't work very well for me and this foundation goes on as if I weren't wearing any primer at all. I like the finish, but I think the coverage isn't very good for acne and it's definitely not very good for large pores, unfortunately.
