Smashbox- Camera Ready 'BB Water' Foundation

Hi Lovelies
So I have another foundation review!
Smashbox have come out with a new foundation just in time for the NZ summer! The Camera Ready 'BB Water'
Described as a water like texture with multiply benefits such as a built-in primer, is SPF 30, has a liquid silk-consistencey, is light weight and is also said to blend easily and move with your skin. 
Because it’s alcohol-free, there is no drying, cracking or caking during wear. The ultra-hydrating, oil-free formula also creates a sheer, radiant finish. Which means its suitable for all skin types!

'Camera Ready BB Water' comes in a small glass bottle with a water dropper 'pump' and as usual is 30ml.
I thought the pump with the water dropper was quite a neat idea, but because the foundation is really runny I found it a bit messy to deal with as I lost track of how many drops I used, plus a little goes a long way! I'd say the coverage is sheer to light but buildable.
Great for people who don't like to wear to much makeup and want a natural everyday look!

I got sent the 'Light' shade and sadly it doesn't match my skin tone it's way to yellow, but looking at the other shades online I may have been either a 'Fair' or the 'Fair/Light' shade.

The finish is very natural/dewy which I love as it creates a nice natural look to your skin. I applied my moisturiser and primer even though I didn't need too but this is just what I normally do before applying any foundation. For the first time I used a flat top kabuki brush which didn't help blend the foundation very well but then the second time I tried it with a beauty blender which blended way better.
I could see myself using this foundation on a day to day basis but at the same time I'm on the fence about it, because one I would need to get the right shade and two I noticed at the end of the day that the foundation had stuck to some of the dry patches on my skin, I may go and get a sample of a lighter shade.

Just to over look the shade it does really feel refreshing on my face like i've had a boost of moisture and I don't feel like i'm wearing a foundation at all.
I find it similar to Mac's Water Weight foundation, once I get a sample of the right shade I could do a comparison. 

Let me know what you think of this foundation if you have tried it.
