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, which keeps oil in check while delivering UV protection, and antiaging Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder, made with 11 amino acids and a potent peptide to reverse the look of fine lines. Plus, it has a deluxe sample of the antioxidant-rich Photo Finish Foundation Primer, with vitamins and emollients to smooth out skin, and a Baby Buki Brush small enough to take on the go for any touchups.

I found that all the sizes of the samples exceeded my expectations ( i.e. I'm still using the BB creme and powder, a little goes a long way)This definitely makes as a great gift for someone!!!

Too much work
Purchased

This is a great idea but it's not realistic on a daily basis. If I used this everyday I would need to wake up 20 mins earlier and I already wake up at 5am. I used the kit and I just didn't see a difference worth the money or the extra time needed to apply it

Oily skin
Purchased

I have a combination oily skin with some dry patches. When I first put this on it was nice but a few hours later my face felt like an oil pit. Just another product I won't be able to use. I do like the primer and powder that came with it though. Primer went on very smooth.

Good starter kit
Purchased

I was looking for a new foundation and BB cream, and bought I would try this using birchbox points. I have to say I really like it and will likely continue to purchase the items individually. The BB does a great job creating a base and more even looking skin tone. At first I thought the foundation was really messy but once I got used to the packaging and started using it with a blender sponge, I fell in love with it. It makes my skin look pretty close to flawless!

Perfect for the beginner
Purchased

The powder and brush are perfect for someone like me who has never used make-up because of acne. This powder doesn't flare my breakouts and takes the shine off my shiny skin. Great product.

Go ahead and try it!
Purchased

Products are wonderful! There's a reason everyone knows of Smashbox. BB cream has wonderful light coverage without being greasy or dry. The powder is just awesome. It has a built in grinder for freshly shaved powder! Of course, this is some of the best primer on the market. Enjoy!

aweful color
Purchased

I was really looking forward to recieving this package since I love BB and CC creams and I usually love smashbox products, but this one was aweful! I always get the light/med and all the other creams fit my color nicely but not only was this one too dark it was a fake orangy color..not at all attractive. The powder was the same with the fake orangy tint. The only redeeming quality of this kit was the primer which I liked and the only thing I actually used.

A Good To-Go Kit!
Purchased

I got the Fair/Medium set and it might have been a shade too dark even though that's usually what I get. The primer is great, not too thick or greasy at all. The bb cream isn't my favorite, it was a little cakey and on the orange side but its light enough coverage that it isn't too noticeable. The powder and brush are the BEST part of it! It gives you nice even coverage and is very blendable so you aren't left with streaks. It's pretty long lasting as well, overall a good little kit to keep in an every day cosmetic bag!

It's okay
Purchased

I really like the primer it leaves my skin smooth for application. However, since I have freckles the BB Cream and the powder makes my face look chalky.

Diggin it.
Purchased

Really liking this small kit. I'm loving the Halo Powder. I love how you can turn the packaging to only allow the amount you want/need to come out. Definitely helps with saving your product. The BB cream is nice, but I've had better luck with drug store products. The prime seems to be working really well so far, it makes my foundation go on a lot smoother and doesnt give you that greasy feeling.
