BB Tip 1: BB any way you want. Use it as a primer. Use it for light coverage. Use it however you see fit!

BB Tip 2: Don't use too much! Just a pea size will do. (Hint: if you need more coverage, see tip #3. No need for lots of layers.)

BB Tip 3: Looks great alone for quick, camera-ready skin. Or pair BB with your favorite foundation for more coverage. We adore it with Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder.

BB Tip 4: Have dry skin? Still moisturize first. Have oily/combination skin? BB is all you'll need.

BB Tip 5: Regular use will improve your skin! BB is loaded with anti-aging peptides for a decrease in fine lines over time, plus it guards against harmful rays with SPF 35.

      This product feels insanely heavy on my face it feels sticky. Also, it doesn't stay on at all. I was so excited to try this and buy into the hype but I wasn't impressed at all. Want my money back ASAP.

              Got a sample size of the this bb cream in shade 'Light' , it lasted me a long time as a little went a long way, it has SPF which is a plus , it's not too heavy and looks natural , it's a good buy if you have clear skin , it does cover small blemishes but it's not full coverage obviously. I loved it and bought it in full size , prefer it over foundation for everyday use.

                  Smashbox's Camera Ready BB cream has a primer built in so it will lock product on to the skin. Setting it with a powder will also help increase longevity.

                  Hi There! The Camera Ready BB Cream is very hydrating and won't cling to dry patches. The formula will last all day! Pair it with our Photo finish Primer for an impeccable finish.

                  We recommend the Fair shade. It is ideal for porcelain and fair complexions. when in doubt it's always best to try it out in person at your nearest Ulta Beauty store! :-)

                  Hi Carmela! While BB Cream is long lasting it does not claim to be waterproof. If your looking for a long wear foundation we suggest our Studio Skin Foundation paired with Photo Finish Primer. It will give you a 15 hour wear that will last and last.

                  Visit your nearest Ulta Store for a custom color match by one of our Beauty Artists.

                I currently use glow by dr. Brandt ruby crystal retinol hydracreme. Is it safe to use it with the Smashbox BB creme? I'm concerned the Smashbox may have retinol or alpha hydroxy.

                  A:

                  Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream is not formulated with any resurfacing actives, so it is safe to use it in conjunction with your retinol cream. It's actually a good idea, since it provides SPF 35 sun protection, which is important when using retinol in your skincare regimen, as skin is more susceptible to sun damage. :-)

                  A:

                  Great question! :-) The proper order of application depends on how you use BB!

                  Have dry skin? Still moisturize first, before applying BB. Have oily/combination skin? BB is all you'll need.

                  BB features the built-in benefits of a primer, so using an additional primer is optional. When using in conjunction with one of Smashbox's Photo Finish Primers, we recommend applying Photo Finish first (after moisturizing if you have dry skin) only to areas of concern such as the T-zone, then following with an all-over application of BB.

                  BB looks great alone for quick, camera-ready skin. Or pair BB with your favorite foundation for more coverage, applied on top of BB. We adore it with Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder.

                  Hope this helps! :-)
