The color I purchased was 2.3 the 5th shade from the lightest. Their are 12 shades to choose from. It is a little pricey but totally worth it definitely my favorite foundation yet. I did pick this up at Sephora for about $42. Smashbox Studio Skin leaves my face feeling light, and natural and that's the biggest concern when I wear a foundation that it doesn't feel heavy like I have a mask on my face.
The coverage is medium to full coverage, you can definitley build the color on areas that need a little extra coverage. I love the fact that it has SPF in it therefore, I get to skip the sunscreen step in my foundation routine. I'm not sure if it really is 15 hour wear, but it is very long lasting. It does control my oil A LOT. I don't find myself touching up as much, if any at all. As for hydrating I feel as though this is exactly what my oily skin needed. It is indeed transfer proof so I don't have to worry about getting any of my makeup on Brandyn's shirt. The color is a perfect match to my skin tone which I was actually really surprised about only because I was told that I had cooler tones, when I actually have warmer yellow tones.
I apply this foundation with either the Sigma F80 (flat top kabuki) or Mac 190 brush (foundation brush). I absolutely love the flawless finish it gives. As for seeing improvement in my skin, I can't really say as of yet.
Overall its a great product and if your in search for a new foundation I defintiley reccomend Smashbox Studio Skin. I would say it would be great for dry, or oily skin. It is very long wearing, and looks very natural for being medium to full coverage. My favorite thing about this foundation would have to be the pump. I LOVE the fact that finally I have a foundation where I have complete control how much product I really need therefore, I'm not wasting any product. You can pump the teeny tinest amount, to a full pump. A little goes a long way with this foundation and its Paraben FREE! yayy!
I'll still be on a hunt to try new foundations but this one definitely is a favorite right now.
Any favorite foundations?
