We are chatting about Smashbox Studio Skin!

Smashbox Studio Skin foundation comes in 12 shades (7 for people of color)

This a long-wearing foundation (a favorite quality) and it applies easily, I usually do about 2 pumps.

Yes! it does come with a pump because at a $42 price tag you don’t want to waste one drop.

Throughout the day when I am running around on the retail floor this stays in place. I don’t have to worry about it being half way off my face mid day and I know it does last at least 9 hours as that’s usually the amount of time I am putting into my work day. (Note: I do not retouch my makeup throughout the day)

The shade 3.3 has a yellow base and blends great into the skin. The coverage is medium to full, I tend to wear more of a medium coverage, the finish is natural. On the bottle, it does say hydrating which you would assume to mean that the foundation would give a glow. It does not for me, which I am not complaining. I want my skin to look like skin when wearing makeup.

Usually, I apply this foundation with a brush from Real Techniques and sometimes a Beauty Blender. Regardless of what tool you choose to apply you should still get the coverage you want.

Since I purchased my bottle Smashbox has changed the names of the foundations (numerical values) and 3.3 is no longer in its shade range the next available color is 3.35. I am hoping that it’s just a value change and not a color change. As a black woman, it is already hard enough to find shades that have the right undertones.

Because I really enjoy this foundation I have ordered the new color so that I can see if there are any differences and if I am going to have to reach out to Smashbox.

Make sure you check back for the update…

Regardless! this is definitely one of my favorite foundations that I think is worth a purchase!

Based on my experience with this product I want to try some other Smashbox products.

    Hi there! Great post :). Have you had a chance to try the shade 3.35? I have found that 3.3 is the perfect shade for me but I hate that they have discontinued it 🙁

    • Hi Stephanie I have not tried it yet. Now you have me wondering. So I am going to test it out and get back to you. I really wished they didn’t change this shade 🙁

    What shade are you in MAC foundations, if I may ask?

    • Hi, Mahnoor! 🙂 I usually wear NC44 or NC45 in MAC foundations.
