Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation with Primer Sample and Brush $42 at HSN.





Formula: Light weight Liquid

Packaging: Glass w/a pump

Finish: Matte

Shade: 2.2

Since liquid matte foundations get uncomfortable and cakey, I do not like to wear them for long periods of time or on a daily basis. Studio Skin is so feather light weight it felt like I wasn’t wearing anything, did not settle in my lines, and comfortable enough to wear for longer periods of time. The foundation shade range is interesting. Shades are numbered except HSN does not provide the full shade range. I am attracted to sets with full size brushes. The Smashbox Foundation Brush is ok. I haven’t noticed much of a difference with this brush and the others I use.

I was very unsure of what Beauty Balms did. When they were all the craze, I tried the BB for lips by Bite Beauty and Smashbox Camera Ready BB for face. I used these for summer because I didn’t want to wear heavy foundations or thick powders.

I swiped them two times in the above photo and think they have pretty good pigmentation. When I wore the beauty balms, it looked like my natural skin but better, and Tawny provided just enough color for my lips.

I am not crazy about beauty balms, but I do think they work and are worth the try. When I am ready to try face beauty balms again, I am interested in Tarte and Boscia.
