I first tried the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream* almost a year ago when I got one as a part of the Sephora Favourites Superstar Set (featured in this haul) and I’m nearly finished my first bottle (you might remember it as a part of my Finish Five by Fall) so that should show you how much I love it and how excited I was to end up with a replacement.
I wear the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream in Light, which is a great fit for me especially with my “winter skin” as you can tell in this post where I’m wearing it in January. It contains SPF 35 which I think is really good and since I spend most of my day indoors it works well for every day coverage. It provides a light to medium amount of coverage, you can tell that it helps cover up my redness but doesn’t totally erase it, so I still use a spot concealer when wearing it, but it really does help provide a great base. I stick to applying it with my fingers, but you can use a brush like the EcoTools Skin Perfecting Brush if you prefer. The Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream is very comfortable on my skin and absorbs well to a natural finish (more matte, but not too matte), and I feel like it’s the kind of product that you can almost get away with looking like you’re not wearing makeup. It also photographs very nicely!
I rarely finish foundations and the fact that I’m almost done my Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream is a sign that it’s a product I regularly reach for. It is easy and quick to apply, offers great sun protection, and looks great. I won’t be surprised when I finish my second bottle too.
