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.

Matches fair skin well
Purchased

I'm not sure that the primer made much of a difference. The BB cream and powder worked pretty well to even my skin tone. I was worried because I have very fair pinkish skin, but the color seems good on me. The baby buki brush is really nice -- overall a great little kit for on the go.

Pretty Good Sample Size
Purchased

I have to say, two out of three are nicely sized samples. The primer, being the smallest of them all. Great colors, but I wish I would have gone one shade lighter- my fault.

less waste

I enjoy this combo! I feel that it has the right amount of coverage and less waste with the twist powder concept. The bb cream is tiny so use wisely but I enjoyed this product. Oh and the primer is an extra bonus. If your looking to try a new powder with medium coverage this is worth a try.

Amazing coverage

This combo literally makes your skin look flawless. It's very light and is especially good for oily or combo skin.... By the end of the day your skin still looks great and not shiny at all. BB cream is not good for dry skin as it is not very moisturizing.

I highly recommend these products!

I love this but it runs a little sallow

I purchased this product elsewhere but thoroughly enjoy it. If you have yellow-ish undertones it's a great product for you. I use either product alone often and they work great but for flawless coverage I suggest all three.

Super pack
Purchased

Loved the "whole package" from foundation to powder and great photo finish look after an 18 hour day at the office. My grandma even wanted to know my secret- reduced pores and smooth finish. No oil residue from any of the products-awesome results!

Nice
Purchased

I like the foundation and primer and the little brush, but I cant even get the powder to come out... I don't know if I am doing something wrong but it's like it's all stuck in the container.

Meh
Purchased

I was super excited to try everything out and turns out I hate the primer. Like loath it. And the bb cream just didn't have enough coverage for what I needed which is fine but it didn't hold up in general. But let's talk halo powder because wow. I love love love it. It's just wonderful!

Not my favorite
Purchased

I like all the products used together, but not a huge fan of individually. Ive been looking for a BB cream to replace my Orgins Vitazing, all the items together work well, but I'm not a fan of using so many products. I won't be ordering full size versions.

The Powder is wonderful!

I am not a huge BB cream fan, but I will say this one is quite good, and I don't get breakouts like I do with most. The star of this kit however is the Powder! It has the perfect amount of pigment to even your skin tone out without looking mask like. And it is perfect if your skin is combo with dryness. In the wintertime my skin is a dry mess, and this one does not show up as a powdery coating, visible to everyone who looks at you! I don't know how smash box came up with a hydrating powder, but it's great!
