wake up in the morning get my smash[box] on

I've been spending the last year (and hundreds of dollars) trying to find the perfect tinted mousturizer. Last winter, I abandoned my long used and trusted Bare Escentuals foundation for something more natural and age fighting (albeit expensive). Somehow, the greats; Laura Mercier ($45), Trish McEvoy ($60) and Josie Maran ($40) all let me down. A couple weeks ago I walked out of Sephora with the discovery that there was a woman with baby porcelain skin ready to be broken out of jail and the key was Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream.
 
BB Cream is sold as a Mousturizer, Primer, and Foundation, although, with the harshness of Utah climate I still mousturize like a boss.
 
Rather than making everyone go through what I did, I thought I would share. You're welcome.

So how much was it? I love my nu skin foundation, but it's really light coverage and I've been scared to try a full coverage...

it's like you heard my heart's truest desire! i've been using bare minerals but i feel like it makes me look like a powdery old lady and so dry! i've been driving to different stores trying on every tinted moisturizer i could find, i'll have to go tonight to try this one!

Carissa I think it's around $35. I anticipate it to last about 5 months. The thing I love about this is that the coverage compounds so you can put on more for more coverage! try it out i'm seriously in lovee!
