Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

I have combination skin and this foundation dries out my face so bad and cause me to break out but it does last all day without breaking up and gives full coverage. I would think it works best for really oily skin.

        • Doesn't Stay On

        Best Uses

          Comments about Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation:

          I was really disappointed in this product. The coverage was not nearly as full as expected. It has light coverage to begin with, but in order to build it to medium-full coverage, I would have to put at least 3-4 layers on which made the foundation look extremely heavy and not natural. My mom even came up to me and told me that I must've been using a new foundation because it didn't look good (YIKES!!). I don't think it did a good job covering redness either. If you have amazing skin and only want light coverage, give it a try, but other than that - try something else!

            It had great coverage. A little went a long way. Towards the end of the night I felt that my face was a little shiny but it could of been from all the dancing I did at my brother's wedding where I wore it for the first time :) I would definitely recommend it. It wasn't that bad of a price especially for how little of the product you have to use.

              I can see that what works for some may not work for others but this works for me. The color match is perfect. 4.2 warm deep brown - perfect undertone and everything. I hadn't ever gotten compliments on my foundation before this. I only wear foundation 1-2 times per week and I use it as a medium coverage but it is buildable. I use the smash box primer with this. I notice it does blend better when I spray my foundation brush with MAC prep and prime. Other than that it looks good for the 15 hours it says it will. Definitely will be my go to.

                I admit, I did love this product. I have dry skin and I moisturize my face before applying the product. But when taking pictures or videos on snapchat using flash, my whole face came out white. Horrible experience with this foundation. It applies smoothly and is light weight on my skin, but it does have flashback. I've had this product for a month and I'm already halfway through the bottle.

                  I had used up my last bottle, so bought it again, but this time it settles into every Pore on my nose. Maybe they changed the formula or I got a dud.
