    I use this in the morning. It's easy put on. I'm not really a makeup person but I needed to find something that covered decently, matched my skin tone, and didn't cause breakouts. I found just that with the help Ulta's employee. She matched my skin color and heard my concerns and wants.

    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    I canNOT believe the 4-1/2 star reviews on this product. I'm in my mid-30s and like a medium coverage foundation. This was hard to apply with a beauty blender and the coverage was blotchy. I could not get an even application even with a primer. I tried to set the foundation with a Powder to see if it helped, and it only worsened it. I am sticking with my Too Faced foundation.

    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    This foundation will definitely last you all day (I even forgot to wash it off before a workout and it stayed on...not great for my skin but life happens). My cons to this are you need a lot more pumps for full coverage so this bottle won't last me that long and it's not as smooth an application as the NARS foundation that I am used to.

    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    I purchased the lightest shade. It is a great shade match for my very fair skin. I normally have to add a white mixer into the lightest shade in order to get a match. However, this is great without that extra step. That is something I really appreciate. I have very dry skin, and this blends in very smoothly. It wears a long time throughout my work day, and I don't have to do touch ups. The only think I was surprised about is that this is a little more matte than I thought it would be. The words "hydrating foundation" makes you automatically think dewy. However, this really isn't. With that being said this is still a "comfortable matte." It really isn't dry and chalky looking. This is a new holy grail for me. This is going to be my new everyday foundation. I pair this with the primerizer from smashbox. It is a great combo.

    Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

    Wanted to love this stuff but ended up returning it after a single use. On the plus side, the shade was beautiful, and it lasted nearly all day which almost NEVER happens with my skin right now. It also didn't cling to dryness on initial application. Sadly, however, the coverage took a lot of building... to the point where once I was comfortable, it looked incredibly cakey. The consistency is also very sticky. I needed to work quickly and in small sections because it almost drags over skin. Upon setting for a few minutes and adding powder, my contour would NOT blend out over this product. I go in very light handed with my contour and yet I had a stripe of product on my face that wouldn't blend. At the end of the day, it appeared very heavy, very flat, and sunk into pores and lines I didn't know I had in a way that aged me about ten years. Definitely disappointed.

      Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

      I have tried probably 30 foundations and my picky skin always disagrees with them. I either breakout or my pores are way too visible or it clings to my dry areas. This is the first foundation I've tried that does none of those things! It's perfect for my combo skin and lasts all day! And it's one of the first foundations that I actually can find the perfect color match! I will cry if this ever gets discontinued!! Best foundation ever!

        Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

        I read soooo many reviews prior to purchasing this foundation. I wanted to like it SO bad. The product has been a huge letdown. For starters, it does not blend well. I have a tiny bit of redness (very minimal) that this product couldn't even take care of. I like lightweight foundations, but this one doesn't even improve the appearance of my skin. I'm not sure what all the hype is about... I'd recommend you try it out in person before purchasing online.

            I like that it matches my skin and the pigment but it's very light coverage. I was looking for something that covers redness and some flaws but this foundation doesn't do that. Had to use more concealer then usually.

                The closest match to Estee Lauder's double Wear Foundation 6N1 is 4.3 or 4.4. Smashbox has a wide range of shades for different skin tones.

                Hi There! You can use a brush or a beauty Blender. A brush will create fuller coverage while a Beauty Blender will create a natural finish. Pair your foundation with a Photo Finish Foundation Primer for a flawless look that will last all day.
