Company’s Description

An eight-hour wear, powder foundation formulated with Light Filter technology and long-lasting photoset polymers that acts as a photo filter for your face. Smashbox Photo Filter Powder Foundation provides two filter effects in one portable compact. It features a double-sided sponge, and it lets you create a buildable and customizable, sheer or full finish. The Light Filter Technology acts as a photo filter to leave skin looking flawless: transparent particles diffuse light in various directions, blurring imperfections while still keeping the subject in focus. Non-drying, non-caking, and non-settling, the particles in this oil-free foundation are translucent so that the pigment’s true color always comes through.

Smashbox’s new Photo Filter Powder Foundation is said to provide eight hours of wear with light-filtering technology to give your skin a photo filter effect. This foundation is available in 10 shades. The shade depicted in this review is Shade 4.
