I’ve really enjoyed my new beauty launches series this year, and whilst I’ve not been posting on my blog, there have been so many new and exciting launches. I have so many on a list on my phone that I’ll be featuring very soon, and today’s new launch is from Smashbox. I featured the Smashbox Crystalized Collection back in March and as it went down so well, I thought I’d include their newest foundation; the Smashbox Studio Skin Full Coverage 24 Hour Foundation.
“A comfortable, 24-hour full coverage foundation that weightlessly glides over skin. It controls oil & shine & has a blurring effect. It’s also waterproof, sweat & humidity-resistant, won’t look cakey or cause acne.“
• 24 hour full coverage with a matte finish
• Weightless, comfortable feel that’s non-settling & non-creasing
• Oil & shine control with kaolin clay & bamboo powder
• Waterproof; sweat & humidity-resistant
• Smooths skin with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E & light scattering spheres
• For all skin types & non-acnegenic
• Cruelty free
I’ve only ever tried one of the Smashbox foundations and the new Smashbox Studio Skin Full Coverage 24 Hour Foundation caught my eye with the claims of non-creasing, non-settling and it having a weightless finish. I’m definitely going through a lighter foundation moment right now.
I just can’t stand foundations that you can ‘feel’ on the skin so I think this would be ideal for my skin, especially as it contains hyaluronic acid. It does claim to have a matte finish, but when paired with a super hydrating formula like the Hourglass Primer Serum, I’ve been able to use matte foundations no problem so I think the Hourglass primer would work really well with this foundation.
The Smashbox Studio Skin Full Coverage 24 Hour Foundation is £29.50 and contains 30ml of product. There are 40 different shades to choose from, which are divided into warm, cool and neutral tones. From looking at the different shades, I think the 0.1 ‘very fair with neutral undertone’ shade would be the best match for very pale skin. There isn’t a cool shade within the ‘very fair’ collection of shades. However the Smashbox website does have photos of the foundation on a model for every single shade complete with a before and after which is so handy for trying to decide which shade is best.
You can purchase the new foundation from the Smashbox website directly with free UK delivery.
