Smashbox Studio Skin Full Coverage Review

Foundations are one of the beauty items that are usually on the must-have list of folks who apply makeup. It may conceal imperfections and hide hyperpigmented spots on our faces. It can also aid to make our skin more consistent in tone and brighten our complexion.

I haven’t purchased a foundation from a non-Korean brand in a long time, and I’m excited to test this one. I acquired this one at a much lower price, and I was really delighted when I received it.

Smashbox Studio Skin Full Coverage is a weightless, 24-hour full coverage foundation liquid that glides over skin. It has a matte finish with a delicate blurring effect and is created with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E. This foundation contains a waterproof solution that resists perspiration and humidity, manages oil and shine, and won’t appear cakey or cause acne.

How To Use:

Apply a Photo Finish Primer. Start with a drop of foundation & blend well. This formula reveals its true color within 60 seconds & sets quickly.

Ingredients:

Isododecane, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Isohexadecane, Petrolatum, Glyceryl Stearate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Hydrogenated Styrene/ Isoprene Copolymer, Microcrystalline Wax\Cera Microcristallina\Cire Microcristalline, Kaolin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Seed Extract, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Bambusa Arundinacea (Bamboo) Stem Powder, Glycerin, Cholesterol, Bisabolol, Linoleic Acid, Polyethylene, Silica, Propylene Carbonate, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, BHT, [+/- Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Chromium Hydroxide Green (CI 77289), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288)]

I’ve used this one for a few days now, and all I can say is that it feels quite thick on my skin. Prior to applying other foundations, I don’t wear primer, but this one truly made me feel oily or oilier. Although I paid less for this one and had low expectations, the way it made my skin oilier is a little horrifying. I worry that it may clog my pores and give me facial acne.

As you can see in the image, it made my skin fairer, but after a while, it ceased to effectively preserve my makeup. Although this product advertised 24-hour complete coverage, I didn’t actually experience it on my skin. Although it contains hyaluronic acid, it made my skin appear greasier rather than more hydrated. I’m still in awe at the outcome.

I was quite dissatisfied, and it made me think that I should stick to Korean brands, but at the very least, I tried and tested this one so that my readers would know what I experienced of it.

I will not purchase this stuff again. Because it can make our skin even more oily than it already is, I won’t suggest this product to those with oily skin like mine.
