Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Smashbox Studio Skin Full Coverage 24 Hours Foundation.
I knew before even trying it that I’d hate this because I hate full coverage foundations, but I thought I could show you something different that you might not expect from me and since there are so many people that love heavy coverage I hope it will help them.
So the review is positive because it’s a good product but I really don’t like it on me because I don’t like full coverage products.
It comes in 40 shades, I have the 2.15 which is for Light skin tone with cool undertone (I’m not super cool but I feel like all the shades tend to be quite warm). You can get it from Sephora for 36$
The bottle is made of plastic and it is a squeeze tub. I like it, it’s definitely travel-friendly and clumsy proof.
FORMULA & COVERAGE
The formula is thick and not runny, it’s definitely full coverage.
It is super matt and a bit drying. It tends to dry quite quickly so I suggest you to blend it quickly. As they say on the box a little GOES A LONG WAY, you barely need any product at all.
My favourite way to apply it it’s with a damp sponge, I find that it makes the foundation mesh with the skin a lot better.
This foundation looks so BAD on me: it grabs to dry patches, it shows so much of my texture but it glides nicely on my pores. I really don’t think it works for my skin type.
In my opinion, is very heavy and I’d never wear it, but if you like full coverage products this is more on the lightweight side.
This foundation lasts for 8 hours without getting shiny.

(but for me is C)
I knew I wasn’t going to like this foundation because I don’t like full coverage stuff. I like the packaging and the colour but it grabs to my dry patches and it shows texture. It just doesn’t work for me. In my opinion, is very heavy and I’d never wear it, but if you like full coverage products this is more on the lightweight side. If you are looking for a long lasting product this might be a good option for you.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
