    This product comes with a dropper so you can control how much you use so it can lost a long time. I put it on with my hands and it provides a your skin but better type of look. It is a very light and natural coverage. Sine I live in a hot and humid climate I hate having anything heavy during the summer. I keep on coming back to this product.

      Comments about Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water SPF 30:

      I love this foundation because it goes on easily and stays pretty put throughout the day. It's lightweight and breathable, so it doesn't clog my pores. You don't need a lot to get a good and even coverage, which is a plus because the bottle lasts longer. My only complaint is that I wish it had more shade variations.

        Love the coverage but hate the stick like applicator!! You get a tiny amt and if you dab on your face or rub off stick your putting germs back into clean container. I try to just dump a small amt on my palm and apply. Come up with new way to apply as good coverage , feels light and blends well ! Id give it a five star rating if not for way you apply it !

            I will start by saying that I love this formula! It is super lightweight and the color matches me perfectly, however, if you are oily (like me) it can slide around a bit. Now, the biggest downfall is the packaging! The dropper broke after about 10 uses and no longer works properly. I can still use the product and I will definitely use it up, especially considering the price tag, but beware of the top.

                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
