      This gives you nothing with the 2-3 drops of coverage recommended and any layering results in cakeyness but don't worry it'll all melt off in a couple hours anyway

            I got this by accident, and I am so glad I did. I am in my 40s and have lost that youthful glow. Well this puts it back - big time! I looked in the mirror after I applied it for the first time and said to myself, "there I am". I haven't seen my younger self since before using this for quite a long time. Now, I use it all the time. It is great for light makeup days... like when I first wake up to cook Sunday breakfast for my husband; and it is also great for a night out with heavier makeup. It is smooth and blends well with all my makeup. I also use it as a primer and as a corrector. If I get mascara or shadow on my skin, I just apply a 1/2 of a dot and wipe... and viola', it is fixed! I LOVE, LOVE LOVE Smashbox BB Water! It's so natural looking, like it is my own skin and complexion.

                  I absolutely love this foundation for the summer. Because it is a bit oily, I thought I would hate it because I have really oily skin but once I set it with translucent powder, it was amazing! In the summer I like a lighter coverage but not too light and this was perfect. You can also adjust the coverage you want which I love since some days I want a fuller coverage. Can't go wrong with this foundation! Found it easiest to apply with a stippling brush.

                  I recently bought this and I loved it!! First of all the dropper is so convenient to use and very sanitary and the bottle is so sleek and small that it doesn't take up alot of space in my collection. The finish is so natural on the skin and very light weight! I feel like this foundation doesn't get enough hype it's really good :)

                        Wanted to love this product but it settles badly in poor and does not sit well on top of primers. I have normal to dry skin but I do not think it will work well on oily skin.

                            Hi There! BB Water is made with Photoset; a technology that makes the foundation transfer-proof and water resistant. Use Primer Water or a light dusting of Halo Powder to set.

                            Hi There! BB Water Foundation will not oxidize. Use it over the top of Primer Water for a finish that will last and last.
