Before trying this foundation from Smashbox, I was an avid Estee Lauder Double Wear fan and wore it all day, every day! It did however look really unnatural on my skin and left it feeling dry and taught. I'm always on the lookout for new long wear foundations, so had to try this one from Smashbox, priced at £27.50, it's a similar price to MAC and Estee Lauder, both of which I use foundations from.
Here's the lowdown:
- 15 hour wear
- Oil free
- Matt finish
- Medium to full buildable coverage
- Pump dispenser
This is a shade 1.2 which matches my pale skin perfectly. The 1.1 was just a little too ghostly on me. This shade is more yellow based which I prefer on my skin tone. I'd say my skin tone is more neutral, neither yellow nor pink toned, but given the option, I think yellow toned gives me a more natural finish,
This is the foundation blended into my hand so you can see the colour match is very good.
