Hello, friends! If you’re not sick of BB creams yet, then keep reading. This post might be especially helpful for those of you who struggle with finding a decent shade match when it comes to BB creams. Because, let’s face it – generally if you don’t fall in either a light or medium light category then BB creams are off limits. Enter Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream, which comes in an impressive 8 shades so you’re much more likely to find a shade that doesn’t make you look like some weird waxwork figure. I opted for Medium/Dark which is a really good match for my NC42 skin.
It comes in a squeezy tube, and the formula is quite thick and smooth. I find that it works best on lightly moisturised skin and worked in with the fingers. I’d say the coverage is light and can be built up to medium – enough to even out my skin, partially conceal the darkness around my eyes, hide the fine lines on my forehead and generally make me look like I’ve caught a bit of healthy sunshine. It also keeps my skin feeling quite moist during the day which is quite the feat – most base products really dry out my skin. It’s probably worth noting if you have oily skin as you might find this a touch shiny as the day goes on.
As far as BB creams go, the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream is one of the best I’ve tried, but then again I haven’t tried a great many due to the shade selections generally available. I’d be interested to know what others think of this as I hardly ever hear anyone talking about it.
Smashbox Camera Ready BB cream is available online and at Smashbox counters and costs £27.
