It blends perfectly into your skin and looks natural. Its not as dry as the other foundations I've tried and it doesn't exaggerate any dry patches of skin. The color is also very good (at least for the one I got for myself). Paula's Choice said to avoid M3, but that was the closest to my natural skin color, so I tried it and it looks good. I didn't wear this throughout the entire day so I can't tell you if it oxidizes or not, but I've heard people saying it looks horrible after a few hours. The reason I didn't wear this outside is because it does not cover well. I would say it has a sheer coverage, so if you're trying to cover up acne, this is not right foundation for you. Maybelline's Superstay Makeup 24HR has way better coverage, although I'm not to crazy about the color I picked. It kind of makes me have like a purplish undertone, if that makes sense. But anyway back to Smashbox. I forgot to mention that the foundation has SPF 15 which is a huge plus. I have a hard time finding any foundations with SPF where I live. Another downside to the foundation is that it was super expensive. I think I payed over 400kr (norwegian kroner) and that is very expensive compared to the other ones I've bought. So bottom line is: if you have normal, slightly oily and/or slightly dry skin, and you're not trying to cover up any blemishes, this can work for you.

I was excited to start using this product, but when I started to brush the foundation on my face, the whole brush just fell apart! The bristles fell off and stuck to my face. At first I thought maybe it was just an initial shredding, but I was wrong. It just continued to fall off. You get what you pay for, is all I can say.

This was so cheap that I had to buy and try it. It has a nice smell and taste and it doesn't feel to heavy on my lips but it's unusable in public. It leaves a white residue on any slight dry parts on your lips and I have very dry lips. If I wore this in public, it would look like I dunked my lips in milk. I give it a 1 for the smell and taste, but other then that it's not good.
