Smashbox Cosmetics Try It Kit: BB+Halo

Thanks to the BB trend, we’ve come to expect all our makeup to contain ingredients once reserved for the fanciest of moisturizers. This sampler of Smashbox best sellers has just what we need: It features travel-size versions of the brand’s signature Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 and antiaging Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder, plus a deluxe sample of the antioxidant-rich Photo Finish Foundation Primer. There’s also a Baby Buki Brush small enough to take on the go for any touchups.

What a great starter kit!
Purchased

I love this cute starter kit! It is great for everyday use and is gentle on my sensitive skin. This product works so well that I don't need to wear concealer or base....just the primer, BB cream, Halo powder and I'm good to go! I definitely recommend this product. Not only does my skin look great, it feels great and my beauty routine got simpler! And you simply can't beat the price. Thanks, Birchbox! I'm loving Smashbox!

I bought several other full size cosmetics from another company and find myself reaching for the Smashbox cream and power first. Definitely a hit!

Fell in love with the smashbox products. Ordered it because it was something I could get locally if I had to. Now I'm glad I did try it out.

BB Cream
Purchased

I really like the Broad Spectrum. It goes on smooth and evenly. Feels weightless, with great coverage. The powder also I like. The color blends in very well.

I'm Happy

The best skin makeup I've ever used on my face. It really does reduce the little lines around my eyes, and my skin feels so smooth before and after. I don't have the best complexion, but you could never tell when I have this stuff on. It also seems like I've been breaking out less since I started using it.

Great!

I am not very skilled in this area and I found this kit easy to use and worked great. It feels very natural and not caked on at all!

Goodbye Mac, Hello Halo
Purchased

I've always been a huge fan of Mac for full coverage and staying power.

This blows Mac out of the water, non-greasy doesn't settle in creases and doesn't feel cakey. I love that it evens my skin tone and goes on smooth.

Just okay
Purchased

I was a bit disappointed with these products with Smashbox being such a well-regarded product line. The primer is fine, your average primer. The BB cream was too heavy and didn't do anything for evening out my complexion. It matched well, but literally looked like I hadn't put anything on. I greatly prefer some of the average priced drugstore BB creams to this one.
The powder is pretty nice, but even with getting "light" it was still almost too dark. It will probably work well once I get a bit of sun.

Happiness is good foundation
Purchased

I have been wanting to try Smashbox BB cream for quite some time but did not want to commit to an entire tube. This sample has been more than enough to help me decide on a future purchase. It provides decent coverage and wears well all day, however, I have not yet worn it during the sweltering summer months. I have blotchy brown areas on my forehead/cheeks from a recent pregnancy, and it covered it well enough without looking caked on. I was disappointed in the primer. It made the BB cream sit on my skin as though I had applied it to a sheet of glass! At first I thought it was the BB cream not blending well, but when I eliminated the primer, the BB cream applied fine. The powder wears well,and I like the way it dispenses by twisting/scraping the product beneath to obtain just the right amount of powder I want to apply. I plan to try a few other brands, but this is something I feel I will come back to.
