The dreaded winter skin look appears to have taken up permanent residence on my face; thus, I couldn’t have been more excited to review Smashbox’s new Studio Skin 24 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation. Just as I began to wonder if cosmetic procedures were needed, Smashbox’s foundation swooped in and actually delivered on its promised abilities. This foundation is SO impressive. Read on:
Ultra-lightweight, oh-so soft, this high-performance and oil-free foundation is definitely one to behold. You will find that just a little will go a long way, and with 40 shades from which to choose, along with a huge variety of undertones, you are certain to find the perfect match.
I am a sucker for too much Red Bull and not enough water – and if my skin could talk it would be screaming, “Stop dehydrating me, NOW.”. Additionally, pores are my sworn enemy. For these reasons, Smashbox’s liquid formula really comes to my rescue. Fine lines, pesky pores and dehydrated skin fade into the shadows like a distant bad dream. The Smashbox Studio Skin 24 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation ROCKS. It literally sinks into the skin, to morph and achieve that flawless second skin look with minimal effort required!

Smashbox’s Studio Skin 24 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation actually delivers awesome results. Although I didn’t wear it for a full 24 hours, it lasted from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. the same day. By this time, I was exhausted, and my bed was calling. However, unlike other foundations, this formula worked like a total dream. I checked my reflection several times throughout the day/evening and there was no caking; my complexion looked just as perfect as when I had first applied it. One word – incredible!
