    Smashbox's BB Cream is on the expensive side but you get what you pay for. Great coverage, is buildable, great matte finish and lasts 24hrs. I can see a big difference in my complexion with it on and my skin feels silky with it. When you fist apply it, it does feel greasy but when it sets its just silky and smooth. (Takes about 60 seconds to set.) I use a setting powder with mine.

      Comments about Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35:

      I use this product with the halo powder and it looks really good. It's lightweight and has improved my skin so much. I used to have red cheeks and after a few days of using this product the red faded. I don't have as many breakouts as I used to and my skin feels good. The coverage is pretty light but I like that for days I don't want to get completely ready. I use the powder over it for more coverage. This cream is the first BB that I've tried and I'm hooked.

        I have just bought my 3rd tube in almost a year. A small amount goes a long way so the price does not reflect the per use cost.

          Comments about Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35:

          It is on the pricey side but it is very good. I have pretty oily skin and it doesn't make me break out and the SPF is a definite plus. I apply a light coat with a flat top brush and it blends perfectly into my skin. I actually bought it on accident but it turned out to be a great one. I got a BB cream for my birthday that was terrible and every con you could think of that BB cream had so when I realized that I had just bought a pricey BB cream I freaked out. But if I was going to pay that much for it then I was going to use it. It turned out to be the best liquid foundation I had ever used. It's pricey for a reason cause it actually does what is says it does and more. LOVE THIS STUFF! Also a little goes a LONG way with this stuff.

              I wear this BB summer and winter. It is easy to apply, isn't cakey, stays all day and doesn't break me out. I have very oily and sensitive skin so it is difficult to find a SPF that doesn't clog my pores. This foundation was a good find!

              Not for dry skin

              Comments about Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35:

              I received this sample with an order. It does not work with my skin. I am on the drier side, except for the summer months, and this was not moisturizing at all. I really wanted to wash it off but had run out of the house for the day. It was thicker than other bb creams I have tried. it does have good coverage for a bb. Overall if you have more combo/oily skin I would give it a try. I also received the light medium shade which seemed a little orangey but I'm sure another shade would probably work better.

              I received this as a free sample and I already know I'm going to be purchasing a full size version of this as soon as the sample is gone. I received it in the shade light/medium. I do have to say it was a little too dark for my skin tone but with some blending it looked like a flawless full coverage foundation. It is a tad heavy, but again, nothing blending can't help. When I do purchase this product I will probably get it in the shade fair. All in all it applies well, stays on well, and looks great!

                  Camera Ready BB Cream is great for all seasons and improves skin moisture in 4 weeks, guaranteed, though if your skin type is dry, we suggest using a moisturizer prior to application of BB Cream. Smashbox does not provide exact wear time, since this may vary by skin type and environment, but it is formulated to be very long lasting!
