I seem to have been quite loyal to this specific foundation and have been through about 4 bottles since its launched, I have already done a video review on this but felt I should share this product with my blog readers too x
I think I love everything about this foundation except for the lid because its abit flimsy and breaks easily
My bottle is soon to finish as I use this product quite alot its one of my HG, no fail, keep coming back to foundations

The bottle is a standard 30ml bottle
it costs £28.50
which is a so-so type of price, Ill pay it but Ill have an internal toddler type temper tantrum -just joking!
This foundation and other smashbox products are available in the UK from Debenhams in store or online
This foundation feels like a souffle - not a mousse a liquid souffle
It has spf 15 uva and uvb protection which im not really bothered about since I love additional protection and ive not noticed an overly whitened face in flash photography but having now said this i think i will investigate this further - but this might just be because I always follow with a powder foundation and bronzer
The foundation also has a tendancy to seperate but you are supposed to shake it before each useage to overcome this
The packaging is also an air tight airless pump
so its super hygienic too
I love to use this on special occasions because I feel it does make me look good in pics as above.
The coverage is medium buildable and in the past i have worn this doubled up with an extra layer and I dont feel caked -but you have to do it right !
My colour is L3 or L4
the pictures show L3
I love the way smashbox has named the shades its simply broken into 4 categories
fair, light, medium , dark
and each colouring group has numbers 1-4 (roughly)
I have alsed m3 in the past as a tan but now i just use Mac mineralize nc40 satinfinish or Chanel tan de soleil for this purpose
I definitely recommend this foundation I know its abit pricey
but if your budget does not go as far as £28.50 maybe try revlon hd foundation which is £10-13?
I hope you found this helpful
