Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Review

I was so excited to get a sample of Smashbox’s new Camera Ready BB Cream.  I like BB creams, but was disappointed that this one didn’t have a treatment element to it:(  Other than that, it is a nice cream, more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, less than a foundation.  Its a happy medium.  It has an SPF 35.  It is hydrating and I do believe it could work as a primer for foundation, although I only used the product alone as I wanted to test out its oil controlling properties.  I have an oily T-zone and my forehead was shiny after a few hours, long before 8 hours.  To be fair they promise oil control “up to 8 hours”, which generally means somewhere less than 8 hours. I won’t be purchasing a full size, but if you aren’t worried about anti-aging properties this is a good cream, but for me, if it doesn’t treat, I’m not interested at this price point.

This BB cream is available at Sephora and is $39 for 1 oz.

Have you tried Smashbox’s BB cream?  What are your thoughts?
