These are the shades! Medium, Medium Dark and Dark. The first two swatches look VERY similar.

This stuff really packs a punch.

The consistency feels like water so I wasn’t expecting it to be creamy and have much of a coverage. Boy was I wrong lol. Not only was the coverage buildable. But it felt like I was wearing nothing! It literally looked like my skin.

To be honest, I’m disappointed in the color range of Smashbox’s BB Water. I definitely feel like they could’ve done better. The color range left a lot to be desired. There are only 8 shades and I received the last 3 darkest colors: Medium, Medium Dark & Dark. I felt like the darkest color was too light for me and somehow a little on the orange side. I had to mix it with my Shade Adjusting Drops to get my correct shade. Bummer. I would give this about a 3 out of 5.
