B.B.Cream Review: Maybelline Dream fresh vs Smashbox Camera Ready


 You may have seen my old review of the smashbox camera ready bb cream on youtube and all the comments are- "Thats not your color, you should get a darker one, that dont look right."DUH! It was the darkest at the time and its called a review, im reviewing it for others. Troll comments dont move me but comments like that just ticks me, did people not expect me to get the darkest color?

I'm here to say that the smashbox ready displayed here is not dark its medium dark. There is more peach in it so in all its crap for the claim color "dark".  I forgot what I paid but I remember it was over 20$. Its not worth it because there is finally a little bit more options for us to try,  just a little more not much. These two are both the same size with so go for the cheapest.
I hate the way it opens, it would just spills out the tube and in the cover, and at times dribble in your hands. It is at risk for contamination in the bottle which leads to a major breakout, so use it out before that happens.

Very rich in color compared to smashbox

Compared to the smash box look how much richer it is. Compared smashbox is so pale and ashy looking. How did they expect this to be dark and not medium. Its not even tan because the lack of color, their is no way it would oxidize into a darker rich color. 

 In sunlight and after alittle oxidization
 Un edited photo to show how dream fresh blurs like it said it would. It blurred my freckles, a bit for my dark circles (genetic btw, I sleep tons) and some for my black heads. I use a concealer with this and I wear this every day I go out and now my full coverage makeup is for my cosplay and this bbcream I slap on with some eyeliner and run out the door if in a hurry.
 Another un-edit full faced. 
This is why I photoshop my bags, the camera makes everything 5x more apparent as well. One day ill have surgery for it when its more prominent in the future, now I can deal with them irl.
Enough with the un-edits back to pretty smooth pictures

 You can never clean the messy head because it goes right back to it. 
But hey its only like 8$ so I don't really expect it to have a pump.
 Look at that color compared. 
Maybeline you are getting closer to perfection
 And its all gone and blended.
Note: My face is darker and more pale compared to my body. I have uneven and blueish undertone around my mouth and under eye area (as you seen in the un-edits) But I would rather match my face to my body and not the other way around. If that makes me a bit more palish I am fine with that.

 How it feels?
 It feels like a lotion. It goes on wet and drys up just like a lotion, which I hate. But it leaves a nice glow, so if you have oily skin you may need to set this with a powder.  I think this will be perfect for winter when your skin is dry.
I recommend this to the max especially for the price. 
And get it at Walgreens in case its not your color, you can carry used makeup back to Walgreens.

Okay I love you bye bye~
