Review - Smashbox BB Cream

4 years ago

I heard some great reviews from my friends who tried the Smashbox BB cream so I decided to try it out for myself and see if it matched up to their reviews.

I was quite pleased that rather than having the generic 3-4 colors, they actually had quite an extensive array of colors. They have 5 shades from fair to dark. I wanted to try Fair but there was none left in the bottle so I decided to try out light instead.

As you can see from my hand, light is still a bit dark for me so I`m pretty sure fair would finally meet my skin color.

Very heavy coverage with little product. One swipe and it filled up 1/4 of my hand and you could not see the veins underneath.
Blends in quite well, I did not see any white patches like I do for other BB creams and I did not have moisturizer on my hand

Smells terrible, a mix of ink and paper
There was no pearl shimmer as promised in the product detail
Pricey - $50
Might not be for people who have sensitive skin or prone to breakouts. After about 30 minutes, my hand started to show signs of redness and itchiness from the product.

Overall, it seems to be a good product for those who need heavy coverage, like those who use the MAC series foundations. I know when my friend complains, its always about my BB creams having little coverage.

For $50, it does seem a bit pricey, especially if it smells bad. I just can`t get past the smell! I wouldn`t want that on my face.

Personally, I think you can find similar BB creams for cheaper.

Hope that helps.
