Most Helpful Positive Review Mixed Feelings but Pverall A good Foundation.
Ironically, I watched/read a bunch of reviews AFTER purchasing this foundation and NO ONE had anything good to say.... but I still gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried it and im glad I did. Every foundation works different for EVERY single person. Even ppl w/ the same skin type. So after watching tons of oily skin reviews on it and reading that it was terrible for oily skin I was worried. But I am delighted to say this foundation is actually really nice. The only downside I saw to it was it dried very fast so it was hard to blend if I let it dry in certain areas before finishing. All in all im impressed and will use the foundation again for sure. Definitely give the foundation a try at the very least. If you're nervous then ask for a sample of it and try it out first1 a little but goes a long way!
Most Helpful Critical Review I really wanted to like this...
I really want to like this foundation since it got raving reviews from several beauty gurus I follow. At first, the foundation applies flawlessly and gives me such full coverage but after 3 to 4 hours, it starts breaking down on my nose and around my nose and mouth area. I've never had a foundation that doesn't cover my nose at all and this foundation just shows up patchy on my nose. Meanwhile, the area around my nose and mouth appears super textured. By the end of a 12-hour day, all the lines on my face, especially my forehead, becomes emphasized. This foundation does look very flawless and perfect when I look at myself in the mirror from faraway but definitely not good close-up. It also feels heavy around my problem area. This may work on people with normal skin that is neither dry nor oily; since I have both, unfortunately, this did not work on me.

honestly I am blown away by how nice this foundation has sat on my skin. it stays matte all day and even though I wear a mask at work, it does not move and it does not transfer that much onto the mask and it still has full coverage. I will definitely be taking back a lot of other foundations and I will be buying extra of this!

So good to my skin! And looks amazing!
Great coverage but...
Danie C from Whittier, CA
I tried this out for the first time this weekend and as soon as I started to sweat, it got really cakey and came off. I used a setting spray and everything and it didn't even last a half hour after I was done with my makeup. Total let down.

I have used this full coverage foundation with both a brush and a makeup sponge and they both apply easily. Holds up in Texas heat!
Nope super heavy

So heavy and can't deal
Ugh, too thick
Ssks from Ft Pierce, Fl
This is way to thick for daily use. Can't test the color because of COVID-19, it's the wrong shade for me. More golden but hard to tell as it's just too thick. More like theatre makeup.
Amazing! I think my foundation hunt has concluded.

I have always used Smasbox foundation, but this is my new holy grail. No more mixing to find my perfect shade, the color is spot on. Amazing product!
It didnt work for me!
Yenni from Texas
Feels to heavy in the skin, plus it gets cake!!! Not for me.
shannonka from Green Bay
I tend to have dry skin. So I def. have to do some prep for this foundation. Exfoliate, moisturize, prime. I also add a drop of face oil to the foundation. But a little goes a long way. Has great all day coverage. If i didn't have to do all the prep work it would be a 5!

Trying to blend this foundation is like trying to blend sidewalk chalk into a driveway. Separates horribly! Just don't.
have dry skin - older lady. would the 24 hr be hard to apply
Dee from Austin Texas
I need all day coverage - but don't want fake look
Olivia from Ulta
Love this so much. It is matte and full coverage. Use a brush and apply it to the brush to the brush first and then blend. Wears nicely too.
So thick and cakey!
T from Washington
I bought this foundation because I was looking for a new full coverage foundation that was not only cruelty free, but had good reviews. This was one of the the top ones that came up when I searched "Best Cruelty Free Foundation" on the internet. So, I decided to give it a try. Needless to say, it was so thick and cakey. It made me look older and made my face look so dry and unnatural. Within only 2 hours, I had to go wash it off because I couldn't stand the way my face felt or looked. I've decided to try one of the other smashbox foundations to see how it goes.
Worst foundation that I've ever bought and used.

Doesn't spread on well at all. Very drying. Looks totally fake, not a natural look
My Go To Foundation
NIkki from GA
I really love this product. Paired with the right primer and a damp beauty sponge I get a flawless look that lasts ALL day on my oily skin.
Puddin from Florida
I love the coverage but I wish it didn't change color after wearing for a while. It tends to get darker so choosing the right shade can be tricky.
Katie from New York
This product is so flawless and long lasting, looks like natural skin. Amazing totally recommend and am definitely purchasing again
Drys quickly, hard to blend into the skin at first
Vyc from Boston
I use this product on my face it's foundation I thought I would like it but I don't get the full coverage I want nor is the shade match on this site accurate. The foundation is hard to blend in I feel like.
Would recommend this product
Bananita from Yuma, Arizona
Like how it covers everything, feel like you need to work with it fast when blending it or else it dries and you can no longer blend the product without putting more on.
Dae from Oregon
I don't know what it is about this, but every time I use it, I IMMEDIATELY take it off. It looks AWFUL. I have dry skin, so maybe that's it? But it just doesn't blend and is patchy. I look 100 years old when I wear this. Literally. I've tried and tried to give it a shot and I hate it every time. On top of that, when you try to put any product over it, like blush or bronzer is GRABS it and you can't blend that out either anymore. I hate this. Which sucks because I wanted to love it.
Should have returned Immediately!

I honestly really wanted to like this foundation but, it does not blend, looks cakey and dries way too fast. I have tired it with numerous different primers, face oils and have even tried using a tiny amount mixed into other foundations and it ruins those ones too. I have used different skin care products under it and nothing helps it look good. There is no way I will ever repurchase this foundation.
Not worth it
Karla from Huntington beach
I found this product hard to blend out and it tends to oxidize over time as well as seep into my pores and fine lines. I went to the store to get my shade matched and it looked fine then, but when I actually kept it on longer, it started to oxidize and made me look orange. It is definitely full coverage but it's not that great overall. I guess it might work for some, but not for me. I'm pretty sure there are cheaper foundations out there that work better. (Not hate though, I loved Smashbox's concealer but the foundation was not it)
Disappointed Customer from Va
I literally don't have one good thing to say about this foundation. It's cakey, impossible to blend and becomes powdery and CAUSES a blotchy look.
Kellie from Missouri
I can make this work but it's hard to. This foundation is difficult to blend out. If I use a sponge it is patchy. It applies best with a brush but even then there are a few streaks. I would say it is full coverage but depending on your method of application this is patch city. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin despite its full coverage. It looks better on my skin through out the day but it does settle into fine lines and pores even when I use a pore primer.
Liz from New Mexico
This stuff is just awful. It slips, creases and smears and gets splotchy through the day. I tried it with different primers as well as setting sprays. It was just awful. I thought I'd try it because I use the 15 hour foundation normally and I love it so I thought this would be great as well. WRONG!!
