The Highest-Ranked BB Cream Right Now

For those who don't love the heavy feeling of foundation, BB cream is the obvious must-have. Not only does it offer light coverage, but it also has a wide variety of other beauty benefits — including broad-spectrum SPF. If you aren't yet acquainted with the category (or are still just generally confused by it), never fear: Rank & Style has rounded up the best BBs on the market right now.

The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you without bruising your bank account. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 the best of the bunch.

Smashbox's formula wins for a few reasons, including its high marks from editors and its popularity among consumers. Customer reviews also play a big role, and a quick scroll through Sephora's website proves just that. "The coverage is light but even, and it makes my skin look amazing. Plus, it's super comfortable to wear," user wakendaaa says. There's zero heaviness, and it lasts pretty much all day.

Regardless of whether you fancy yourself a BB-cream expert or you're just starting out, Smashbox is a brand you should consider. Like your favorite red lipsticks, lip balms, and makeup removers, this product will become an instant classic in your kit.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35, $39, available at Sephora.
