The pro­fes­sional one

Smash­box Stu­dio Skin Hy­drat­ing Foun­da­tion, £28

No. 1 Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

The brand’s hype: “Stay pic­ture-per­fect for a full 15 hours with our break­through long-wear­ing for­mula, de­vel­oped to with­stand in­tense on-set con­di­tions. Skin is hy­drated and shine-free.”

Ver­dict: Smash­box Cos­met­ics were cre­ated for use in photo stu­dios, un­der hot lights, to look flaw­less in HD and to need min­i­mum touch-ups. This foun­da­tion and it’s wear-abil­ity is proof that they know what they’re do­ing.

This is a nice tex­ture and I found that the warmth of my fin­gers, as op­posed to us­ing a brush, helped to blend it into the skin easily. The cov­er­age was medium.

By lunchtime the cov­er­age is still last­ing re­ally well and whilst call­ing it ‘hy­drat­ing on the skin’ may be a tiny bit of a stretch, I don’t feel like it’s dry­ing out my skin ei­ther.

Mirac­u­lously, by the end of work, this for­mu­la­tion has not set­tled into my dry ar­eas and it still looks fresh and ‘re­al­skin’ like ages af­ter my lip­stick had faded into obliv­ion.
