I have been giving the Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation a whirl because they are launching eight new shades this summer, and I got on really well with it! Although I have used Smashbox primers before and also the BB water, I haven’t ever tried a foundation, so this was really interesting for me.

Before & After Photos
I really like the coverage and finish of this. It is really comfortable on the skin and deliver a nice velvety matte, not flat, finish. I found it evened out redness and pigmentation and gave my skin a nice unified look.
Smashbox have tested and perfected colour consistency across 22 shades in any light and they guarantee that it will look good everywhere you go. With the inclusion of eight new shades, this should mean more happy customers.
There are also 10 new shades launching in the matching Studio Skin Concealer line.
