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: 2.2 (Light Golden Beige) more...
I was SO excited when I bought this foundation. I have dry to normal skin and heard great things about this formula. I prepped my face using the same primer I always so and applied the foundation with a brush..like always and... HECK NO!

It was pretty light coverage to start with (which I was not expecting), so I started to build it up and as I started blending more foundation using my brush, it was just picking up the foundation I had already put on my face, causing patchy spots and not covering up my redness. I could not make this work and had to wash my face to then apply a different foundation. I will be trying this with a beauty blender to see if this helps, but as of now... not worth the money... AT ALL!

This foundation is the best I have every tried. It leaves a perfect combination of matte plus dewy finish, and my face never feels cakey no matter how many layers I decide to add. This blends in beautifully with a damp beauty blender. I also love that this product comes as a pump, that way I can control how much I am using everyday. Usually 1 pump is good enough for my face when I am looking for medium coverage. And this foundation is easily buildable. I use 2 pumps if I am looking for extra coverage.

Review for: 2.15 (Light Cool Beige) more...
This is my favorite foundation. Holy grail! If they ever discontinue it, I’ll flip out! I have oily, acne prone skin. I’m also starting to show signs of aging. I typically use this foundation with the Dr. Brandt pores no more® pore refiner primer and it’s a match made in heaven. It really doesn’t look or feel like foundation once applied to the face. It’s very light & doesn’t seep into pores or fine lines. I don’t get too oily with it, either. It lasts for hours! Even in high heat! It’s medium coverage but you can definitely build it up (which I do). Or you can sheer it out. I apply with a the original beautyblender® beauty queen limited edition pink original. I can’t say enough good things!!!!

Review for: 1.1 (Fair) more...
I first purchased this product years ago because one of my friends makeup always looked flawless. It is very easy to blend. I always use a beauty blender so I can’t speak for other applications. They have a wonderful color selection. I also love the fact that you can purchase it at several retailers making it easy to repurchase. There is no scent. I have sensitive skin and never have had an issue. The reason I took off one star is after a long day I notice some areas where the make up has worn off such as my nose from sneezing. I always try new foundations to see if I can find one better but i always come back to this.

Review for: 1.2 (Warm Fair) more...
I really liked this foundation. It’s hydrating but the finish is a semi matte or satin. My skin look so smooth and powerless when I wear it. This is a medium to full coverage foundation. I have to go in a second time for full coverage. This foundation looks great with one layer on “natural” makeup days. I have dry patches and this really helps. My skin looks better after I’ve taken it off. I bought the 1.2 but it was a little too dark for me. So I mix a foundation mixer with it and it still performs the same.

Okay.. I was so excited for this foundation I have dry to normal skin. I prepped my face as always, same way I usually do. Dabbed the foundation on my face, started blending with my usual damp beauty blender and.. HELL NO! It was light coverage to start with, so I was like Okay! Let's build this up... nope.. as I started blending more foundation my blender was just picking up the foundation I had already put on my face, causing patchy spots. I could not make this work and had to wash my face. I will be trying this with a brush to see if this helps, but as of now.. not worth the money!

Review for: Neutral Beige more...
I lloooovveee this Foundation !! I purchased this foundation a month ago and it’s my holy grail now !! I have oily skin and I hate how other foundations make me look cakey at the end of the day but this one does not!! It looks like skin !! It’s a medium coverage but you can always add more to get a full coverage. I recommend for oily skin girls it does leave me a little oily on my T zone in about 7 hours and I just touch up with powder nothing big. And no other foundation I’ve tried lasted about 7 hours without my oil coming Through. I Love this foundation ! Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

Review for: 1 (Ivory) more...
I have the color 1.0 in ivory. In summary: long lasting, dry, not for every day.

I bought this foundation full price (ouch) with help from Ulta color match and it does match perfectly. I asked for recommendations for high coverage and dry skin.

Pros:
- This stuff stays on FOREVER. Like, the 15-hour last time I don't think is a lie. It's last through showers, sleeping after a full day, many a late sweaty night out. It takes a true makeup remover session with cotton pads/wipes to get this stuff off. Which I do love, it is nice for long events.
- It is pretty good coverage. I have red cheeks naturally and it hides them very well and keeps them covered. I am not the most acne prone so I cannot judge this well, but I think it would work.

Cons
- Price. Ouch - 42! Regrets.
- I don't understand how it says hydrating in the name. This stuff sucks out all my moisturizer and is SO. DRY. My skin does not like this stuff. It has a tendency to look patchy because when you put it on you have to put it on quite quickly before it dries because after that it is not going to budge.

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.
