Color issue/ not the best for combo skin

Pros

  • Long-Lasting

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Light To Medium Coverage

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

    I feel like this covers a bit more in the realm of BB coverage. It kind of mattifies everything, which for me is not a good thing since I have combination skin- meaning I am prone to flakiness in some areas when I put on a cream that has pigment and the stuff that has drying properties. I use my heavy moisturizer and use a primer on those dry areas and this BB goes on nice and smooth.

    I am fair colored with a yellow/beige undertone.. I have a difficult time finding a good shade, and this is no exception. I got the light shade, which looked OK at first. I went outside and got in my car, I glance in the rearview and see an allover orange tint! yes, on MY face. I usually cringe when I see this on other women. Eek, I was on my way to work and it wasn't an option to go back inside and change for my alternate. I was sad! After a few hours, I looked at my face and the color seemed to have mellowed out to my actual color. Not sure why that happened. I was very relieved, but still cannot say it is a color match because of the initial orange. Too bad because coverage wise, after a few hours, everything was still great.

    I am probably not going to repurchase (and might return this) since the color is not a good match. I have bought two shades and mixed for products I love but the drying properties are not good for my face.

      Use it when I am just running around alone, and before I go out as a primer. This stuff is awesome and definitely helps with my acne. Barely have to use any for it to spread across your whole face. Goes on weird at first but blends fast after it is on.

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

      This is my first ever review on any makeup site, but I have so much compassion for my fellow slick-faced ladies and so much love for this product that I had to put something. This stuff is incredible. I have massively oily skin but this keeps oil down almost all day. Sure, I have to blot from time to time on some days, but I never reach the stage where I look like a dinner plate that a personal pan pizza has been sitting on for two hours. I feel so much better throughout the day because I don't feel the oil weighing on my skin (if you are oily, you know what I am talking about!) Gorgeous matte finish. The best part is that Smashbox is offering a couple of their shades in a travel size, which is only $19! That is the reason I bought it...I am cheap as well as oily. I really hope Smashbox will offer the travel size in all shades because I know not all women have cash to burn on the full size price. It doesn't take much, so my little tube has been lasting quite a while. This being said, I really don't know how this CC cream would fare for those with a lot of acne - my face is pretty clear, just unbelievably oily, so acne-prone skin ladies would have to conduct a separate experiment. I use with a serum below (except my oily areas), then slap that baby on with a foundation brush. It will not be the easiest to blend...it is, after all, a matte finish for oily skin...but in my opinion it blends better than most BBs and CCs, as well as the "24-hour" foundations. If most people crave a Greek salad after staring at your face for five minutes, this is most definitely the BB Cream for you! Get a tube and experience the awesomeness of having an matte finish day! Love it and will definitely, DEFINITELY buy again!

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

      I bought the travel size to try it and loved it so much, I threw out my drugstore brand of BB cream. It covers so well, has a smooth matte finish, and lasts until you take it off at night. I use it as a primer under foundation most of the time to get the most coverage. The only con is that it is very expensive and you can't use the coupon towards it...but it's worth it if you can splurge on it.

          I received this in trial size and glad I did not pay for it. I have heard all of the benefits of BB creams, but I found it to be heavier than what I expected. I have very fair skin, and received the lightest shade, but it still was about two shades darker than my skin tone. It would probably work for someone who has medium tone. I love tinted moisturizer and I will stick with that rather than this BB cream.

          This is a good product, just not for the price. It works well as a BB cream/light weight, light coverage foundation. I don't believe that it is worth the price. It works well for the summer months with a little powder to set it. I haven't found a problem with it really wearing off too much, which is nice. It does blend nicely into skin, and you don't need to use a lot of it. I found that it worked well when applied with my fingers or a medium dense foundation brush.I will not be re-purchasing,due to price. I feel as if I can find a equally as good product for much cheaper.

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

          I've used the BB cream twice. After applying, the cream seemed to disappear into my skin appearing very natural. The cream did not prevent me from becoming shiny, but I think reduced my normal shine a little bit. The first time I used it, I wore it all day. By the end of the day, I found a few bumps (which was a bummer). The second time, I wore it for a shorted period of time and did not breakout.

          Cons: To deduce the shine, I pat my face with a tissue and the cream does deposit onto the tissue. The cream does not spread as well as a normal moisturizer, so I found that I needed to use more. I still shiny, but it appears more of a glow than oily.

          Pros: I like to use my fingers to apply and reduces minimal redness.
