Face Anything With The Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation

If you’ve been reading anything I’ve written so far, you KNOW I’m a sucker for foundations. I love how something as basic as a foundation has the ability to make me feel either great or crappy. Smashbox India has been going off advertising their Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation – and with fair reason. The foundation has sort of a holy grail status in the beauty industry.


A high-performing liquid foundation that helps you face anything.

Studio Skin evens skin tone & never settles into pores & lines.

Find your perfect match among 40 shades (that won’t oxidize) & a broad range of undertones.

It’s the same great formula—now proven to last 24 hours!

  • Medium-to-full buildable coverage
  • Never settles into pores & lines
  • Oil-free
  • Won’t oxidize
  • Lasts 24 hours
  • Won’t cause breakouts; Controls oil & shine
  • Transfer-resistant, sweat & humidity-resistant
  • Cruelty free
  • Vegan

Studio Skin is infused with nourishing hyaluronic acid and won’t oxidize or cause breakouts. It easily builds from medium to full coverage and gives you a fresh, natural matte finish. This foundation is also transfer-resistant, which means it stays right where you want it for 24 hours.

Although there are 40 shades in the line, Nykaa carries only 33. How am I not surprised? Maybe it’s because Nykaa has the tendency to do things a little…half-assed, if I may say so myself. On the other hand, Sephora India is worse. They’re carrying ONLY NINE shades. *facepalm*

What’s funnier is that even though there is a carousel for the foundation, most of them are already sold out. (How do I get my shade?) Maybe there will be a quick restock. I sure hope so. I really want to try this foundation because I want to gauge the wearability for myself.

The Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation is available on Nykaa and Sephora, and is priced at INR 3300.
