        Nice product, but it's a light coverage BB cream. I was hoping for something with better coverage so I could eliminate foundation from my beauty ritual. Won't be purchasing again.

          I have been using this bb cream forever- it's simply the best. I have oily/combination skin and this foundation helps control the oil but still moisturizes. It's light coverage which is all I'm looking for- just something to help even out my skin tone and disguise redness. Also, it's a huge bonus that it has broad spectrum spf protection.

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

          I have mixed feelings about this product. On the one hand, it looks super on and is nice and light and easy to apply and I LOVE the matt finish. It makes my skin look really great. The problem I am experiencing is it is making my skin incredibly dry - even with a serum and quite a rich moisturizer applied underneath. I do tend towards dry skin but I haven't experienced such dryness with other products I have used.

          The 'fair' color is very pale. I have pale skin and even I find it a bit of a shock to see how pale I look wearing this product. That being said, I am also pants at doing make-up and I'm sure those who are more skilled will be able to warm it up and make it work.

          On balance I would recommend this product, with the caveat that some people may find it drying.

          I love this stuff! I'm a fair, blue-eyed redhead who has trouble finding foundation to match my skin. This is very light coverage, but doesn't sink inot fine lines and goes on without looking cakey. I've tried a ton of BB creams, and this is definitely the best I've found for me. I have hypothyroid dry skin, and this doesn't show dry patches. I use the Photo finish primer foundation underneath, and the Halo hydrating powder on top of it.

            LOVE this product. It's my favorite BB Cream by itself or under additional bronzer or powder foundation. The new shade is the perfect combination of light and medium tones. Stays on all day-great to pair with the Smashbox primer and powder foundation.

                  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.

                    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.

                        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!
