I have incredibly dry skin and my face sweats constantly in the summer time. Before I bought this, I returned Urban Decays All Nighter Foundation and All Nighter Concealer because it is AWFUL for dry skin. Anyway, I exchanged those products for this one (retails $32 at Ulta) and WOW. What a difference! After using my smashbox redness primer I applied this foundation with a damp beauty blender and definitely, it is medium coverage. However, it is buildable as it claims to be! I applied about three layers to achieve full coverage and WOW. My face literally looked like it was airbrushed. I have NEVER seen a foundation work as well as this one does! Definitely found my holy grail foundation. Now, since yesterday was blistering hot (I'm talking 105+ degrees) I will say that it isn't super sweat proof. But I don't know if that's because of the powder I applied on top of this foundation or what. I was dripping sweat at work for sure so I don't want to hold it against this product because I did have to touch up yesterday. However, today is much cooler (SCruz weather, always changing) so I definitely see a much better change. I have lightly sweated throughout today and my foundation has not budged for six hours so far. So in love and will definitely be buying again. Also, this foundation comes with a free sample of their photo finish primer. Who doesn't love freebies?

I LOVE smashbox for their lipsticks and most recently, that wonderful photo finish primer! I was excited to purchase this because of my history using the aforementioned products. I purchased this foundation in 1.1 - fair-light with neutral undertones. The color is nearly spot on, but honestly, I should have gone with medium instead.  However, I read the reviews, i read the description, and i bought this product for its longevity and the fact that it is supposed to be a medium to full coverage, depending on how much you pack on. I pack it on using a Sephora foundation brush, and then blend it using a beauty blender. It blends...alright. I feel that I spend a LOT of extra time perfecting it, especially on my nose and around my nostrils. The thing that bothers me most is that I feel like its MAXIMUM medium coverage, if you layer it on pretty thick. I don't "warm it" before I apply, and it seems so sheer on my skin! Its true that this product does last a really, really long time, and it doesn't transfer - as long as you use an awesome setting powder and a great primer. Without primer and setting primer, expect this product to smudge quickly and make your face feel feel slick. Because of this, and the extra few pumps of the foundation I need for the coverage I desire, its not worth the price.

I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!! The Smashbox foundation is definitely one of my go-to. I love how does foundation is so hydrating and long-lasting. The texture of it make is so much easier to apply. When I wear this, it doesn’t show any lines under my eyes or have dry patches around my acnes. I also like the fact that it I can just use my finger to apply it and it doesn’t look bad at all. Usually I will use a beautyblender to apply this foundation and I absolutely love the finish of. It gives a very natural glow to my skin and enough coverage for me to cover my acnes and redness. I would totally recommend this foundation to the people who are looking for a every day foundation. This foundation definitely have enough coverage for every day and it is also a buildable for a more higher coverage look. As a girl with very sensitive acne skin, this foundation is very easy to remove and does not give me any acne. I WOULD TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS FOUNDATION ANYONE OUT THERE!

This is hands down my holy grail foundation for oily skin 🙌🏻 I’ve gone through dozens of both high end and drugstore foundations looking for one to hold up against my oily skin and although most break up/wipe off/let an extreme amount of oil break though, this one never does. I wear this to work on a daily basis and after an 8-10 hour day it still looks perfect. Although it’s matte it doesn’t make my face like completely dull like some matte foundations do. If you have oily skin, just trust me you need this!

Do you like your skin to look like the effortlessly even, poreless models in small brand fashion ads? Then gorl, this is the foundation for you. Very few brands can claim a TRULY medium-buildable coverage, but this hits the nail on the head for me. It's not going to cover every  blemish 100% on it's own, but it really doesn't matter when the rest of your skin looks THIS smooth and even. I have combination skin and was initially put off by the fact that this was marketed as hydrating, but I've put it through 20 hour days with minimal blotting and it's held up exceptionally, while not accentuating the odd crusty spot. The number one selling point, imo, is how beautifully this photographs. I have yet to notice any flashback from the spf, it just looks like unattainbly even skin. Do it.

This is my HG foundation and I can't find anything negative to say about it. This has the most beautiful natural finish and it photographs beautifully, I often find that long wearing foundations are too matte and have a very heavy finish. It is not the case with this product. It gives you medium coverage, but you can definitely build it up with an extra pump.

I travel to Walt Disney World often (basically is like spending your day in a sauna!) and this is the only foundation I'll wear to look flawless in person and pictures all day long!

One thing to mention is that I do not like wearing this with the smashbox primer, I have optimal results with the benefit porefessional or the tatcha silk canvas primer.

Review for: 0.5 (Porcelain) more...
I got this again after the price lowered to 36 bucks from 42 because I couldn't keep on buying it at that price, so I was glad the price went down, AND the shade range was expanded. I tried wearing 1.1 which I used to wear before the shades were expanded, now its darker on me. .5 suits me perfectly. This is not too sweatproof as i tend to sweat heavily on my forehead in my hot bathroom and left the sweaty areas patchy so I have to cover them with a bit of bronzer. This is probably preferred for less sweaty guys and gals. Also, leaves a sticky finish so setting/finishing powder is a must. My tarte shape tape concealer also eats away at it leaving an obvious line.

Review for: 1.15 (Peach Fair) more...
I got this foundation as a recommendation because I have dry skin but wanted something with full coverage that wouldn’t dry my skin out. This foundation is advertised as hydrating but I still found it to cling to my dry patches, even when applied with a beauty blender. I think it was around $32 but it just dried me out and made my dry patches stand out. Maybe I need to try it again with a beauty oil underneath but it surprised me that the foundation was advertised as hydrating. I gave it to my sister and she really liked it on her oily skin so I think this one might be better if you have normal/oily skin. The pump and the packaging is nice too.

I love this foundation specifically because it is so lightweight on my skin. The coverage is medium Id say and the finish is a demi matte. Smashbox formulated their products with being photo ready in mind and this foundation does that for sure. My skin always looks so nice and even when I wear this. It lasts a very long time when powdered and even unpowdered it has good staying power. I highly recommend this to anyone who has combo to dry skin because it isnt very drying.

5 starts! I think I have found my holy grail foundation! this stuff is so incredibly amazing, when they say hydrating they weren't kidding. As someone with incredibly dry AND very sensitive skin I did not have problems with flaking OR break outs. The coverage is a medium to buildable full coverage foundation and lasts me a good 9-10 hour working day. I would need to blot once, but either than that I never seem to have to reapply. The only downside is that I wish they had more color variation. As someone with obvious warm undertones, I would appreciate more yellow vs peach colored foundations.

Just bought this and looking forward to trying it out. Anyone find that this applies better with a particular applicator like blender or brush? Or that it works better with any particular products? Specific primers, setting powders, or concealers? Curious to know how everyone likes to use it best!

Does this foundation oxidize?

Is this really transfer proof? Does it last all day? I've read that it gets oily during the day.
