I absolutely love this SmashBox Camera Ready BB [ Beauty Balm] Cream with SPF 35. It replaced my usual Mac foundation for the past few months now. I am a fan of M.A.C make up but it has a rumor of looking caked on at times. It’s a very heavy make up depending on which foundation you are using. They have so many options, Matte, liquid, pressed power and the list goes on and on.
Anywho, the BB Cream! This is an awesome alternative to your regular foundation. It has a smooth and light finish. I always feel like I have the appearance of an effortless glow when I wear this and the fact that it has SPF is a plus. I have dark spots from previous pimples and it helps to protect my skin. Don’t want those buggers getting darker. I originally received a sample of Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer from Sephora and also really liked it. I think my shade was Almond. It was more product for my buck but SmashBox won me over and matched my complexion better plus it had a higher SPF.
Laura Mercier offers way more shades but it’s a tinted moisturizer. They also have it in Oil Free and Illuminating so their are options. Some BB creams only have 2 shades and none of them are for darker skin so SmashBox does a good job by currently having 4 shades.
Check out the links below. They note the particular shade that works for me but you can easily find your shade. Happy Shopping!
