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.

        I've been using this since day one. When they literally had like a handful of shades. It's thick on the brush but it doesn't go on heavy. The coverage is great and lasts all day. I use this for work bc I know it stays on for 8 hrs.

            This is the first time I ever wrote a review. I bought this because of Carli Byble's YouTube channel. I was looking for a good tinted moisture for summer, but I wanted something with a little more coverage. This BB cream is wonderful. I mix two colors when I use self tanner and it goes on with my beauty blender better than anything else I've ever tried. I have tried a million foundations and my least favorite part is when I put them on they all get stuck to dry patches on my cheeks and forehead then later on my skin is super oily. This BB cream goes on great without leaving any dry patches on my skin, it does not make my skin oily throughout the day, it stays on and it gives a Dewey non oily finish.

                This BB cream does a phenomenal job at evening out my complexion. Additionally, I have noticed this product helps with my oily t-zone. I don't have to touch up my makeup as frequently. I prefer a matte look, so I set this with powder always. However, even w/o powder the product doesn't set shiny or luminous, it just looks natural. It's very long-lasting and doesn't feel like you're wearing any makeup. I definitely recommend giving this product a try!

                I use this paired with the color correcting photo finish primer and just love it! I've had so many people complement me on my makeup, and I tell them to head to Ulta and check out the Smashbox line.
                The only thing that is bad is it's pricey. Like the old saying goes "you get what you pay for". I love this stuff!!

                        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 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.

                        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! :-)
