Blogtober Day 13 - Smashbox studio skin hydrating foundation

You will probably know I am currently on the hunt for a perfect foundation for my very dry skin. Today I thought I would do a review of one I have been really enjoying in the past couple of months. The Smashbox studio skin foundation is a gorgeous medium but buildable coverage with a beautiful dewy finish. This isn't overly dewy but looks and feel comfortable on my dry skin. I find it doesn't fall into any patches or my smile lines which is a problem I have with a lot of the more dewy foundations. In terms of the colour I do feel like this shade is a little too dark despite it being the lightest they do and I also find it a little bit too orange however that is really my only complaint. 

In terms of wear I think this is pretty great. Even after a good 8 hours the coverage is still the same and it only starts to sink into the dry skin on my nose at about the 7 hour mark. I'm not sure I could wear this for fifteen hours however I think that it does the perfect job for an everyday foundation. Something that doesn't bother me is the fact that it doesn't completely set down and that it does feel slightly tacky on the skin. Due to this it will transfer for the first couple of hours however as the skin pulls the moisture out of it it sets down a little more. Obviously this is something which might bother you however I don't mind. 

I absolutely love the packaging on this product I just think it is really simple and easy. Although I feel like the lid is very easy to use as it's so little. 

So that's it for today, have you given this foundation a go? 


  1. I really love this foundation! It took me by surprise! xx

  2. I think this sounds really good for lasting 8 hours. I'm never convinced something can last for 24 hours or whatever the claims are x

  3. Ooh this doesn’t sound like it’s right for me. Although I’m quite intrigued to try a smash box foundation x

  4. I've never tried this foundation but i hear people raving about it all the time!
