The Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water is really easy to work with. I just shook it up and popped a few drops on to the back of my hand, then used a buffing brush to work it into the skin. At first I thought the shade Light Neutral was a little warm for me, but as I blended it in to my skin, it seemed to match itself to my skin tone providing really good, yet light and invisible coverage.

It is really comfortable on the skin and I love that the finish is slightly matte yet nicely radiant. It is super lightweight, you literally can’t feel it on your face, yet the coverage is really impressive. It covers redness easily and I think you could build this up to full coverage if you wanted to. I can still see some of my larger pores around my nose but it is absolutely lovely on the fine lines around my eyes, and really smooths those out. It also sets really quickly and lasts well.

This will be fab if you are looking for natural looking coverage with a radiant, non-shiny finish. I love that it’s great for dry skins and has SPF 30.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water is £29. Find it HERE.

  1. FYI-This is the exact same formula as the new MAC Studio Waterweight SPF30 foundation. Compare the ingredients and it is exactly the same. MAC costs less though and has more shades.
