I’ve always loved the Smashbox primers but never thought about giving their foundations a try, until a few months ago when I picked this up.
The two things that really stood out to me were that this foundation has hyaluronic acid and vitamin E in the ingredients, which is amazing! This allows the foundation to look fresh and not dried out and gross by the end of the day. It barely settles in my laugh lines and looks great after a whole day of wear. It contains no fragrance, which is great because fragrance can sometimes irritate my skin and it is also free of parabens and phthalates.
This has a nice pump and the product is housed in a thick glass bottle. The product itself is a thick liquid consistency and gives a medium to full coverage; it is buildable. Once it has dried down you get a matte finish but it’s not a flat matte; it is almost satin. I love how fresh it looks on the skin and how it remains looking nice throughout the day; I do get oily after a few hours which is normal for me but when I blot the foundation barely transfers onto the blotting sheet. It does not separate, cake, or exaggerate my pores after about 8 hours of wear; it really is long wearing (however I do not know about the 15 hours claim).
I love the shade range because they have many different undertones and I was able to find a very close match to my skin color. The shade range makes it super easy to find your shade online because it gives a skintone shade name and an undertone description below it.
I’am really enjoying this foundation and would recommend for oily skin types; I’ve also read reviews on how great this foundation is for dry skin types as well!
