Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes in "Light": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes in "Light": Review and Swatches
Earlier in the year Smashbox released a line of BB Cream for eyes called the Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes ($29 CAD), which are essentially an under eye concealer with the added properties of an eye cream. To see how well it works, click......

What it is:
-A BB Cream specially designed for the skin around the eyes
-Diminishes the look of dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and fine lines
-Brightens under eye area and primes eyes for makeup
-SPF 15
-Available in five shades: fair, light, light/medium, medium, dark 

Packaging:
The BB Cream Eyes comes in a very nice and sturdy pen with a matte black finish. The product dispenses from a wide brush tip via a twist up mechanism. I usually dab the product on with the pen and blend with my fingers.

Formulation & Pigmentation:
Despite it being advertised as an BB Cream for eyes, this under eye concealer is actually quite opaque and it dries to a really nice matte finish. The product sets quite quickly but it gives enough time to blend evenly. Once it sets though, it will not budge and really clings to the skin, which is amazing because I did not experience any creasing, a problem I have with almost any under eye concealers I tried.
The color "light" is really perfect for brightening the eye area, making the eyes look more awake and refreshed.

"Light" heavily swatched on my arm.
Here is a before and after. I applied the BB Cream all around the eye area for maximum coverage.

Overall:
I highly recommend this product because this has got to be one of the best under eye concealers I have tried (check out my old comparison post of a few more under eye concealers). The matte, long lasting, opaque, and non-creasing formulation is really amazing. Not only does it hide dark circles, it stays put all day!

Availability:
Smashbox is available online at Smashbox, Sephora, and in stores at Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart, Pharmapix, and Murale.
